Getting Richer

"The rich get richer because big fortunes beget bigger fortunes." -- Frank Gue 
It takes money to make money, and it takes more money to make even more money. But it doesn't take a lot to get started, and it doesn't even have to be your money. Becoming wealthy is quite simple. All you need is a little discipline. 

Save a portion of what you make, consistently and without fail, no matter what comes up. You need to learn to live on 80 percent of your money. 

Invest your savings on what you think will turn your money into more money. A business, the stock market; these are all possibilities. Not all investments will be successful, so learn from them. 

Finally, live only on the money your investments make for you. Never eat away at your investments; it's the surest way back to the beginning. 

Repeat the process as often as you like. The rich keep getting richer because the more often they play, the easier it gets and the more fun they have. 

Keep it simple and fun and you will succeed.

Wealth Building

"All wealth is the product of labor -- John Locke" 

Wealth building is not hard work, but it does require that you put some effort into it.

There is no secret that the rich hide from everyone else. There is no magical formula that only the few have discovered. There is no dumb luck or chance involved. The simple truth is that wealth can be right around the corner from you. You have probably passed the opportunity for wealth many times without realizing it or without stepping up and grabbing hold.

Change requires time

"It took a while to get here, it will take a while to get somewhere else." 
 Change does require time and time is always in short supply. Progress requires change and that's why progress is so hard to come by.  

We want more, we want better, but we want it for free.  

It's not that change requires much effort, it's that change is uncomfortable. We treasure our comfort zone, our area of relative safety, our place in this world, but change does not live there. Change requires doing something you haven't done before, something different, something uncomfortable. It doesn't have to be something difficult or terrifying, just something different. 

Try it. Make a new choice today. Decide that you will make one new decision today, and see where it takes you.

Think about it.

"A thought is worth a thousand possibilities, where's yours leading you?"
-- Maurice Champagne --
We think we're better, but we're not.
We think we understand, but we don't.
We think the world revolves around us, but it doesn't.
We think we'll live for ever, but we won't.

We think life is difficult, but it's not.
We think life is not fair, but it is.
We think we want more, but we don't.
We think we see the truth, but we don't

Our thinking limits us when it should be setting us free.
Our thinking makes us sick when it should be healing us.
Our thinking makes us weak when it should be giving us strength.
Our thinking lets us down when it should be rising us up to new levels

And what's really worth thinking about is that we have a say in what we think.
