You’ve been trying for some time now and although you have a college education and a decent job, you just can’t seem to make any significant progress towards your financial goals.
You hear over and over, advice from the experts- Put away 10% of your income every month into a savings account. Live within your means, find ways to save money and make your dollars stretch. Sacrifice temporary pleasures for the long term goals. Invest money in your IRA, your 401K, mutual funds.
For some reason your money disappears before the end of the month. You find yourself longing for the next paycheck.
Sound familiar ? I know that feeling because that’s how I used to be.
Lucrative business opportunities appear in front of you. You believe for a fleeting moment- that could be your opportunity of a lifetime and then you pass on it.
You go to a seminar on real estate investing. They teach you how to flip houses. You listen to everything. In your mind it looks incredible. Then you go home and forget about it.
You hear about other people investing in the stock market and their money is growing slowly but surely. You watch people getting into bitcoin. Their investment has skyrocketed 10 times. Someone asks you to invest and you decide to wait.
Meanwhile your friend from high school just moved into a $2 million home. Their kids are going to private school. They travel around the world. They have not one, not two but three expensive cars that are paid off in cash. They gift their teenager a Mercedes Benz for their 16th birthday !
You feel envious and then you feel frustrated. “Why am I not able to live like that?” Your grades were probably better than that high school classmate. Back in the day you even helped them with their math homework. And now they can afford bigger houses and better cars and trips around the world!
What is wrong with this picture ?
The same opportunities for wealth came along for both of you.
The difference? They took advantage and you did not.
What stopped you?
My guess is fear! Fear holds us back every time. Maybe it’s the fear of failure. Or the fear of losing money. Fear of the unknown. Or the fear of wealth! Whatever it is, fear is a powerful emotion that can stop us from achieving our goals— our biggest, wildest dreams.
But here’s the thing: you’re not alone. We all have fears that paralyze us in some way or another. The difference between those who become millionaires and those who don’t is that the big dreamers have found a way to move past their fears. They’ve faced them head-on and they’ve come out on the other side stronger and more confident than before.
If you’re ready to make serious changes to your financial future, it’s time to challenge your fears and take bold action today!
It’s the only way to achieve your millionaire destiny.
