Being rich is more of a state of mind than a dollar amount. Truthfully, the rich can be poor and the poor can be rich. For example, being rich could be a family of five who lovingly share their small piece of bread in a third-world country. Conversely, another family of five may live in a 12-bedroom home and still have strife over an unlimited first-class feast!
Obviously, achieving a sense of balance will allow you to possess true wealth and also be able to enjoy it.
If you’re looking to have it all in life, here are the only 5 ways to get rich:
1. Adopt the producer mentality
You must make a major shift from being a consumer to producer. Here are some examples: consumers eat pizza, producers make pizza; consumers watch movies, producers make movies; consumers search for jobs, producers provide jobs. Every millionaire is a producer. Only producers get rich.
The overarching goal of a producer is not to eat, but to feed people. Obviously, producers must consume at some point, but it isn’t their primary goal. Instead of seeking their next meal, they’re more interested in providing the next meal for someone else, knowing that they will have the chance to eat in the process.
2. Know your daily rate
How much are you worth per day? Have you calculated your daily worth? $100? $500? $1,000? There are approximately 250 working days in a year. Do you know what it would take to be a millionaire? If you earned $4,000 per day, you would reach the million-dollar mark each year.
If you’re earning $100 per day, you should try to double it. Just imagine, if you did twice as much, you would earn twice as much!
3. Sacrifice everything
The great majority of people are afraid to make sacrifices because they think they’ll lose something. The single mother won’t buy a $20 book that will help her earn $20,000 extra dollars. She’s the same mother who’s afraid of the cost, but still would buy a video game for her son to make him happy.
Before you become rich, you must become poor. Besides lottery winners and heirs who receive hefty inheritances, you must be willing to pay the price and sacrifice everything. You must be able to handle the worst if you want to expect the best. There will be many times where you’ll have to delay gratification to focus on a bigger goal, which is always worth it in the end.
