3 Reasons Why People Don’t Become Financially Successful
First of all we need to dispel the myth that there is something wrong with being successful and wealthy. If there is an unselfish purpose behind success and the creation of wealth then the universe will find a way to support your endeavours.
Let’s look at some of the reasons most people don’t become successful and achieve wealth and if you recognise any of them then now is the time to turn that around.
The first reason is that for a lot of people the idea just never occurs to them. The average person has grown up in an environment where no one has achieved any recognisable success or accumulated or knows wealth. It therefore just never occurs to them to look for a different way of life because they are not aware of the alternatives. By contrast, those who have grown up in an environment of success and wealth are likely to become successful and wealthy.
Make a Decision!
The second reason that people don’t become financially successful is that they never decide to! Even if a person reads a book, attends a seminar, or associates with people who are financially successful, nothing changes until he makes a decision to do something different. This is something that you see all the time at events – you see the same people time and time again but they never make a decision to change.
As Mark Twain famously said “If you keep on doing you’ve always done, you’ll keep on getting what you’ve always got”
The primary reason for underachievement and failure is that the great majority of people don’t decide to be successful. They never make a firm commitment or definite decision that they are going to become wealthy and successful. They mean to, and they intend to, and they hope to and they’re going to, someday. They wish and hope that they will make a lot of money and become wealthy, but they never decide, “I am going to do it!” This decision is an essential first step to becoming financially independent and on the road to success.
I’ll do it Tomorrow
The third reason that people don’t become wealthy is procrastination. People always have a good reason not to begin doing what they know they need to do to achieve financial independence. It is always the wrong month, the wrong season, or the wrong year. Business conditions in their industry are no good, or they may be too good. The market isn’t right. They may have to take a risk, or give up their security. Maybe next year….. and so on and so forth.
They just keep putting it off so nothing changes!
These are just the main resons that most people don’t become successful financially but the important message here is that you can. You just need to see things differently, make a decision to change and then follow through with taking the required action little by little, one step at a time.
People ask us “how did you get started?” “how did you get to where you are now” The answer is simply that we made that first decision and we took the required action. Now it wasn’t all plain sailing – we got things wrong, we failed but we didn’t stop and we won’t stop.
We have an aim in sight and we will do whatever it takes to achieve that aim (you can read about that in Our Story)
All we would say is that nothing is impossible with the right mindset and the right mentor.
