In my Rich Habits study I discovered that your beliefs dictate your circumstances in life. Those who are wealthy have different beliefs than those who are poor or middle-class.
Beliefs = the acceptance of something without any proof to back up what we accept as fact.
Beliefs = unconscious programming.
Beliefs are primarily inherited conclusions. We adopt the beliefs of our parents, family, culture and environment.
The wealthy adopt certain beliefs that promote success:
- I must read to learn.
- I am responsible for the circumstances of my life.
- Money and wealth are good.
- There is an abundance of money and wealth to go around.
- Everyone has the ability to become wealthy.
- I can solve any problem.
- I can overcome any obstacle.
- I create my own luck.
- Opportunities are everywhere.
- Opportunity does not knock. I have to go out and find it and take action.
- I must earn respect.
- Failure is good.
- Failure is a learning experience.
- Failure is the stepping stone to success.
- I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.
- Time is the most valuable resource. I must make efficient use of my time. Wasting it is a crime.
- Birds of a feather flock together. I can only succeed if I surround myself with other success-minded people.
- Dreams and goals are the rungs on the ladder of success.
- If I help others succeed, I will succeed.
- If I improve the lives of others, I will improve my life.
- Always exceed the expectations of others.
- I am in control of my thoughts and emotions.
- Never quit on a dream.
- Success takes time.
- I must save more than I earn and invest my savings in my dreams and goals.
- I am amazing.
