Hello friends, in today’s article we see wealth file #17 from the book the secrets of the millionaire mind. this is the last wealth file of the book, which is about, Learning and Earn, rich People constantly learn and Grow and poor people think they already knew. so let’s understand this wealth file #17
Wealth file #17:-Learn and Earn
Rich people constantly learn and grow
Poor people think they already knew
this wealth file helps you to understand the basic concept of becoming rich. the main difference between rich and poor people is, rich people constantly learn and poor people don’t learn, they only learn, when they are in school college.
when they got the job, they stop learning, that’s why they can’t reach the first level of richness. so let’s understand in the author’s words,
the author starts this wealth file, from their seminar example,
the author says, ” At the beginnings of my live seminar, I introduced people to what I call ‘ the three most dangerous words in the English language’
Those words are ” I know that”, so how do you know if you know something? simple. if you live it. you know it. otherwise, you heard about it, you read about it, or you talk about it. but you don’t know it. (Learn and Earn)
put bluntly, if you’re not really rich and really happy there’s a good chance you still have some things to learn about money success, and life. As I explained at the beginning of this book, during my ” broke ” days, I was fortunate to get some advice from a multimillionaire friend who had some compassion for my plight.
Remember what he said to me; ” Harv, if you’re not as successful as you’d like to be, there’s something you don’t know.” fortunately, I took his suggestion to heart and went from being a ” know-it-all” to a ” Learn it all” from that moment on everything changed.”
then author explains how poor people think about knowing everything.
the author says, ” Poor people are often trying to prove that they are right. they put on a mask as if they’ve got it all figured out, and it’s just some stroke of bad luck or a temporary glitch in the universe that has them broke or struggling.
One of my more famous lines is ” you can be right or you can be rich, but you can’t be both” Being right means having to hold on to your old ways of thinking and being. Unfortunately, these are the ways that got you exactly where you are now. (Learn and Earn)
This philosophy also pertains to happiness, as in that ” you can be right or you can be happy”
there’s a saying that the author and speaker Jim Rohn uses that makes perfect sense here. ” if you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always got.” you already know ” your” way, what you need is to know some new ways.
that’s why it’s imperative you continue to learn and grow. physicists agree that nothing in this world is static. Everything alive is constantly chaning. Take any plant. if a plant isn’t growing, it is dying. it’s the same with people as well as all other living organisms.
If you are not growing You are dying. One of my favorite sayings is by author and Philosopher Eric Hoffer, who said, ” the learners shall inherit the earth while the learned will be beautifully equipped to live in a world, that no longer exists. Another way of saying that is, if you’re not continuously learning, you will be left behind.”
then the author gives the example of broken people who say about learning.
the author says, ” poor people claim they can’t afford to get educated due to lack of time or money. On the other hand, rich people relate to Benjamins Franklins quote: ” if you think education is expensive, try ignorance.”
I’m sure you’ve heard this before, ” knowledge is power” and power is the ability to act. Whenever I offer the millionaire mind intensive program, I find it interesting that it’s usually the people who are the most broke who say, “I don’t need the course”, ” I don’t have the time,” or “I don’t have the money.”
Meanwhile, the millionaire and multimillionaire all register and say, ” If I can learn just one new thing o make one improvement, it’s worth it.”
By the way, if you don’t have the money to learn how to be successful, you probably need it more than, anymore. I’m sorry, but sayings, ” I don’t have the money” just doesn’t cut in, when will you have the money? what is going to be different a year or two years or five years from now? Here’s the easy answer.
Nothing! and you’ll be saying the exact same words again at that time. the only way I know for you to have the money you want is to learn how to play the money game, inside and out. (Learn and Earn)
you need to learn the skills and strategies to accelerate your income, manage money, and invest it effectively. the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.
Look, if what you’ve been doing were working you’d already be rich and happy. Anything else your mind conjures up as a response is nothing more than an excuse or justification. I hate to be so in your face about it, but the way I see it, that’s my job. in short, to do whatever it takes to move you to the next level in your life.”
then the author talks about success, and how we can get one.
the author says, ” success is a learnable skill, you can learn to succeed at anything. if you want to be a great golfer, you can learn how to do it. if you want to be truly happy, you can learn how to do it. if you want to be a great piano player you can learn how to do it.
if you want to be rich, you can learn how to do it. it doesn’t matter where you are right now. It doesn’t matter where you are starting from. What matters is that you are willing to learn. (Learn and Earn)
One of my better-known quotes: is ” Every master was once a disaster.”
then author give a wonderful example, I think, you should learn in this book, from the following link
then author talk about learning
the author says, ” No one comes out of the womb a financial genius, every richer person learned how to succeed at the money game, and so can you. remember, your motto is, if they can do it, I can do it.
Becoming rich isn’t as much about getting rich financially as about whom you have to become, in character and mind, to get rich. I want to share a secret with you that few people know; the fastest way to get rich and stay rich is to work on developing you!
the idea is to grow yourself, into a ” successful” person, Again, your outer world is merely a reflection of your inner world. you are the root; your results are the fruits.
There’s a saying I like; ” You take yourself with you wherever you go; If you grow yourself to become a successful person, in the strength of character and mind, you will naturally be successful in anything and everything you do.
you will gain the power of absolute choice. you will gain the inner power and ability to choose any job, business, or investment arena and know you’ll be a success. This is the essence of this book. When you are a level 5 person, you get to level 5 results, but if you can grow into a level 10 person, you will get level 10 results. (Learn and Earn)
Heed this warning, However, if you don’t do the inner work on yourself, and somehow you make a lot of money, it would most likely be a stroke of luck, and there’s a good chance you’d lose it. But if you become a successful ” person” inside and out, you’ll not only make it, you’ll keep it, grow it, and most importantly, you’ll be truly happy.”
then the author gives the difference between rich and poor on learning.
the author says, ” Rich person understand the order to success is Be, Do, Have. poor and middle-class people believe the order to success is Have, Do, Be.
poor and middle-class people believe ” if I have a lot of money, then I could do what I want and I’d be a success.
Rich People understand, ‘ if I become a successful person, I will be able to do what I need to do have what I want, including a lot of money.”
here’s something else only rich people know; the goal of creating wealth is not primarily to have a lot of money, the goal of creating wealth is to help grow yourself into the best person you can possibly be. In fact, that is the goal of all goals, to grow yourself as a person. (Learn and Earn)
World-renowned singer and actress Madonna was asked why she kept changing her persona, her music, and her style every year.
She responded that music was her way to express her ” self” and that reinventing herself each year forces her to grow into the kind of person she wants to be.
In short, Success is not a “what” it’s a ” who” the good news is that ” who” you are is totally trainable and learnable. I should know by no means am I perfect or even close to it, but when I look at who I am today as opposed to who I was twenty years ago, I can see a direct correlation between ” me and my wealth”( or lack of it) then and “me and my wealth” now.”
then the author gives another key difference between rich and poor people.
the author says, ” I’ve found that another key difference between rich people and poor people ( middle-class people) is that
rich people are experts in the field. middle-class people are mediocre in their field and poor people are poor in their field. how good are you at what you do? how good are you at your job? how good are you at your business? do you want a totally unbiased way of knowing? look at your paycheck. that will tell you everything.
We recognize this principle in the professional sports world every day. Generally, the best players in every sport earn the most. they also make the most money on endorsements. this principle also holds true in both the business and financial worlds. Whatever you choose to be a business, owner, a professional, a network marketing distributor.”
Whether you’re in commissioned sales or salaried jobs, whether you’re an investor in real estate, stocks, or anything else, all things being equal; the better you are at it, the more you’ll earn. (Learn and Earn)
this is just another reason why being a continuous learner and enhancing your skill in whatever arena you are in is imperative. On the topic of learning, it’s worth noting that rich people not only continue to learn they make sure they learn from those who have already been where they themselves want to go.
One of the things that made the biggest difference for me personally was whom I learned from. I always made it a point to learn from true masters in their respective fields, not those who claimed to be experts, but those who had real-world results to back up their talk.
Rich people take advice from people who are richer than they are. Poor people take advice from their friends, who are just as broke as they are. I recently had a meeting with an investment banker who wanted to do business with me.
he was suggesting I place several hundred thousand dollars with him to get started. he then asked me to forward him my financial statements so he could make his recommendations.
I looked him in the eye and said, ” Excuse me but don’t you have this backward? if you want me to hire you to handle my money, wouldn’t it be more appropriate for you to forward me your financial statements and if you’re not really rich don’t bother!
the man was in shock. i could tell that no one had ever questioned his own net worth as a stipulation for investing with him.”
so to summarise this wealth file, in short, we can say, if you really want to be rich, then you have to master your skills, and always try to learn and grow. (Learn and Earn)
so this is all about the wealth file #17 from the book ” the secrets of millionaire mind”
