Part 6: Your Vehicle to Wealth—You
“Until we see what we are, we cannot take steps to become what we should be.” - Charlotte P. Gilman
The idea that you should pay yourself first, promoted by the book The Richest Man in Babylon in 1926, might not be as good as it seems. That’s because you cannot pay yourself first if you don’t own yourself. You can do it only if you own your vehicle.
Poorness comes from bad choices. Similarly, wealth comes from good choices. Choices are the steering wheel of your life.
Probably the biggest obstacle to getting millions is your environment, the people you’re surrounded by. It would be easy to go in the Fastlane if we knew a few people who went that way. However, almost all of the people around us do not truly believe in us, and what’s more, they get us down. Beware of toxic relationships with people.
Your biggest asset is time. Not money. People who exchange time for money do not actually have much time to really live. That’s why it’s important to value time. We only have so much time in our lives.
It’s not enough to be interested in something. To really get things done, one must commit and work hard toward it. It’s not enough if you are interested in e-commerce. Only commitment and hard work will provide you with results.
Actions to take
Constantly educate yourself.
