Hello friends, in today’s article we see wealth file 9 from the book ” the secrets of the millionaire mind”, in this wealth file, T Harv Eker explains Rich people are bigger than their problems, and poor people are smaller than their problems.
so let’s see the difference between rich and poor people’s mindsets regarding solving or facing problems.
Wealth File #9:-Rich People are Bigger than their Problems
Rich people are bigger than their problems
Poor people are smaller than their problems.
In this wealth file, the author gives us the most important mindset to facing problems, and how rich and poor people differentiate from them. so everyone should know about this to become rich. let’s see what is the difference?
the author says, ” As I said earlier, getting rich is not a stroll in the park. It is a journey that is full of twists, turns, detours, and obstacles. The road to wealth is fraught with traps, and pitfalls, and that’s precisely why most people don’t take it. They don’t want the hassles, the headaches, and the responsibilities. In short, they don’t want the problem.
Therein lies one of the biggest differences between rich people and poor people. Rich and successful people are bigger than their problems while poor and unsuccessful people are smaller than their problems.
poor people will do almost anything to avoid problems. they are a challenge and they run. The irony is that in their quest to make sure they don’t have problems, they have the biggest problem of all… they’re broke and miserable.” (Rich People are Bigger than their Problems)
then author give the wealth principle
Wealth Principles:- The secret to success, my friend is not to try to avoid or get rid of or shrink your problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that you are bigger than any problem.
then the author gives us the measurement of the problem
the author says, ” on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 belongs the lowest imagine you are a person with a level 2 strength of character and attitude looking at a level 5 problem.
Would this problem appear to be big or little? from a level 2 perspective, a level 5 problem would seem like a big problem.
Now imagine you’ve grown yourself and become a level 8 person. would some level 5 problem be a big problem or a little problem? magically the identical problem is now a little problem.
Finally, imagine you’ve really worked hard on yourself and become a level 10 person. Now, is some level 5 problem a big problem or a little problem? The answer is that’s it’s no problem. It doesn’t even register in your brain as a problem. there’s no negative energy around it. It’s just a normal occurrence to handle like brushing your breath or getting dressed.”
Then the author gives a note for solving the problem
the author says,” Note that whether you are rich or poor. Playing big or playing small, problems do not go away. if you’re breathing you will always have so-called problems and obstacles in your life.
let me make this short and sweet. the size of the problem is never the issue- what matters is the size of you!
This may be painful but if you’re ready to move to the next level of success, you’re going to have to become conscious of what really going on in your life. Ready? here goes.” (Rich People are Bigger than their Problems)
Then the author explains the big problem and how we make our mindset to solve them.
the author says,” If you have a big problem in your life, all that means is that you are being a small person. don’t be fooled by appearing once your outer world is merely a reflection of your inner world. If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you.
One of the not-so-subtle reminders I give participants at my seminar is this whenever you feel as if you’ve got a big problem, point to yourself and scream, ” mini-me, mini-me, Mini-me.”
that will abruptly wake you up and move your attention back to where it belongs- on yourself then coming from your ” higher self” ( rather than your ego-based, victim self), take a deep breath and decide right now, in this very moment, you will be a bigger person and not allowed my problem or obstacle to taking you out of either your happiness or success.
The bigger the problem you can handle the bigger the business you can handle the bigger the responsibility you can handle, the more employee you can handle, the more customer you can handle, the more money you can handle, and ultimately, the more wealth you can handle.
Again your wealth can only grow to the extent that you do! the objective is to grow yourself to a place where you can overcome your problem or obstacles that get in the way of your creating wealth and keeping it once you have it.”
then the author talks about their experience.
the author says, ” Who knew? I sure didn’t. I thought that once you made it, you made it! boy, was I in for a rude awakening as I proceeded to lose my first million almost as fast as I made it. Now, in hindsight, I understand what the issue was at the time, my “toolbox” wasn’t yet big and strong enough to hold the wealth. I had achieved. Again, thank goodness I practiced the principles of the millionaire mind and was able to recondition myself! not only did I make that million back but because of my new ” money blueprint” I’ve made millions and millions more. Best of all I’ve not only kept it, but it keeps growing at a phenomenal rate!”
then the author gives us advice
the author says, ” think of yourself as your container for wealth if your container is small and your money is big what’s goin to happen! you will lose it. your container will overflow and the excess money will spill out all over the place. you simply can not have more money than the container. therefore you must grow to be a big container so you cannot only hold more wealth but also attract more wealth. The universe abhors a vacuum and if you have a very large money container, it will rush in to fill the space. (Rich People are Bigger than their Problems)
One of the reasons rich people are bigger than their problems goes back to what we discussed earlier. They don’t focus on the problems, they focus on their goal.
Again the mind generally focuses on one predominant they at a time meaning that either you are whining about the problem or you are whining about the problem or you are working on the solution. rich and successful people are solution-oriented.
They spend their time and energy on strategies planning the answers to challenges that come up and creating a system to make certain that the problem doesn’t occur again.
Poor and Unsuccessful people are problem-oriented they spend their time and energy bitching and complaining and seldom come up with anything creative to alleviate the problem, let alone make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Rich people do not back away from problems, do not avoid problems, and do not complain about problems rich people are financial warriors.”
So this type of difference affects the solving problem mindset.
If you want to solve a problem be bigger than the problem.
So this is all about the wealth file #9, rich people are bigger than their problem. poor people are smaller than their problem.
