Thinking: Rich vs. Poor Thinking – 7 Mindsets of the Wealthy!

  • Most people believe that the rich have secrets to wealth that will not ever be shared with the peasants of the world. The truth is, the rich do have secrets. But they are probably not what you would expect. A simple shift in mindset can put you on the path to becoming as wealthy as you want to be. The following are examples of rich thinking vs poor thinking. Once you modify your view of wealth attainment, it will become clear just how possible the dream really is.

    Poor Mindset: “I grew up poor, so I will always be poor.”

    Rich Mindset: “I do not want to be poor, so I refuse to be poor.”

    In the United States today, there are more self-made millionaires and billionaires than at any previous time in our nation’s history. Long gone are the days where one must be born a rich baby to become a rich adult. It is a common, and dooming, mindset of the poor that one will forever be stuck in his station. However, the rich know that the first step to obtaining wealth is the awareness that it is possible.

    Poor Mindset: “It would be wonderful to be rich.”

    Rich Mindset: “I am going to be rich.”

    There is a great difference between dreaming of being rich, and deciding to be rich. Once you aware (and convinced) that wealth is possible, it is natural to wander into the land of daydreams–oh, the houses and cars you will be able to buy, the luxurious vacations, etc. If you are truly to become rich, you need to snap yourself out of the fantasy, and commit fully to the reality. Choose a concrete financial goal to cling to. Be sure that it is something truly meaningful to you, because luxury items will lose their appeal once the journey becomes more difficult. Perhaps your dream is to obtain wealth so that you can put your children through college, or retire comfortably in a beautiful location. Keep your true reason for desiring wealth in your mind at all times.

     

    Poor Mindset: “Someday I will learn how to become rich, after I ________”

    Rich Mindset: “I will learn how to become rich TODAY.”

    Those who procrastinate never become wealthy. Time is your greatest asset, and should be treated as such. If you are to become rich, you must start today. This is not to say that your bank account will suddenly grow–rather, you need to begin cultivating yourself and planning exactly how you are going to gain your wealth. Begin your research, write down your thoughts and ideas, and put them into action as soon as feasibly possible. It will take a while for the money to come in, which is why it is imperative that one begins immediately. 

    Poor Mindset: “I don’t think I can do it, so I won’t risk failing.”

    Rich Mindset: “Even if I fail, I have unlimited opportunities.”

    Here is a secret of the rich: Everyone fears failure. What separates the rich from the poor is the ability to recognize the fear and continue anyway. The poor believe that failing at a task makes that person a failure. The rich understand that everybody fails (not a person in the world is exempt), and that there are no limits to how many times one can restart and try again. Fear of failure needs to be seen as an opportunity rather than an obstacle. As billionaire Mark Cuban says, “I am always afraid of failing. It’s great motivation to work harder.” 

    Poor Mindset: “My friends and family will laugh at me if they know I am trying to get rich.”

    Rich Mindset: “I will share my secrets with others only after they ask how I got rich.”

    One fear that is not discussed enough, but is ever-present in all of us, is the fear of looking greedy or haughty to our friends and family. We worry that our loved ones will view us as arrogant, or foolish, to believe that we are capable of becoming rich. And what if we then fail? Will we be laughed at by the people whom we care about the most? The wealthy know that the best way to combat this fear is to keep your ambitions and plans as close to the chest as possible. Include only those who you can count on to be supportive, and avoid negative naysayers like the plague.  

    Poor Mindset: “I don’t have the time or interest to learn new things.”

    Rich Mindset: “I am my greatest asset, and the more I know, the more opportunities will present themselves to me.”

    Concentrating on money and how to get more of it will be a waste of time unless you invest in your own personal growth. Choose one personal goal at a time that will help you on your journey to becoming wealthy. Perhaps your plan is to start a business, but you lack knowledge in entrepreneurship. Or you want to invest in the stock market, but know nothing on the subject. Educate yourself. Spend a designated amount of time each day learning about your topic and practicing the skills that accompany it. Abraham Lincoln once said, “I will prepare and some day my chance will come.” By preparing, you will recognize when the opportunity comes your way. Without preparation, the chance will pass you by without being noticed.

    Poor Mindset: “Nothing I try has worked yet. This has been a waste of time, and I am done.”

    Rich Mindset: “Obtaining wealth requires persistence and patience.”

    Let us review your journey so far. You have realized it is possible to become rich, and decided it is what you will do. You began right away, and faced the fear of failure head-on. You surrounded yourself with those who support your ambition, and you invested in your own personal growth.

    The money still has not come in.

    After all of this work, and a huge shift in financial mindset, are you really going to quit? If you plan to be poor, you will quit. If you plan to be rich, you will not. Keep in mind that if it were simple and quick, everybody would be rich. While building wealth is rarely quick, it can be simple. Stick to your plan, build good habits, and never stop investing in yourself–the results will pay dividends.

3 Things That Hold People Back From Online Success

Starting something new is always a bit nerve-racking, especially when it involves making money.

Starting an online business can be an amazing adventure, but it can also come with some unexpected bumps in the road. You won’t get everything right when you’re first launching your business, but that’s okay as long as you have a plan in mind and know what it is you are trying to accomplish to achieve online success. Did you come up with your own product that you’re selling on an e-commerce site? Do you want to be an affiliate marketer? Are you selling your own digital products, like an e-course or coaching services?

No matter what it is you are trying to do to accomplish online, you must be aware of these 3 things that hold people back from achieving online success. If you can avoid these 3 common pitfalls, you will reach your goals and achieve the success you desire.

#1: I’m Afraid to Fail

News flash: everyone on the planet is at least slightly afraid of failure, especially those who are seeking online success. It’s part of human nature to be afraid of taking risks and falling flat on your face, but if you want to truly be a successful online entrepreneur you will have to endure failure. You need to admit to yourself out loud that becoming an online entrepreneur will come with setbacks and failures. You have to admit this to yourself before you take one step forward, because otherwise you will lose courage as the journey gets increasingly difficult. It’s not a question of if you will fail, but when. As long as you know what you’re aiming for failure shouldn’t scare you.

#2: I’m not an Expert 

The idea that you need a few fancy letters after your name to make money online is a very outdated concept. Yes, to practice medicine you do need to be a doctor—same thing goes for lawyers. But becoming an expert typically does not require you to be certified in anything other than your own life experience. If you are amazing at helping people save and invest their money, then you can make a great living teaching people online. Same thing goes for fitness. You don’t have to be a business expert to sell products online either. If you have experience in a specific area and you know how to get results for yourself and others, that’s all the expertise you need. Don’t let a few credentials keep you from living out your online business dream.

#3: I Have Things to Figure out

All of us have things to figure out. Do you think Steve Jobs knew every thing there is to know about computers and software before he started Apple? Do you think Mark Cuban knew everything about live streaming before he started his internet company Broadcast.com, and later sold it to Yahoo for billions of dollars? If you are waiting for all the stars to align and say you’re ready to launch an online business, you will be waiting forever. None of us are ready to take the next step—not really. What you need to do is have faith that with hard work, you’ll be able to learn what you need to learn to be successful. But what you need to do right now is just take the leap. There will never be a perfect time to start your online business—that perfect time is right now. Here’s to your success!!

St. Martin – St. Maarten


The island of St. Martin/St. Maarten is split between French Guadeloupe and the Dutch Netherlands Antilles, located in the Leeward Islands of the Caribbean Sea. The island is one of the smallest land masses in the world divided between two countries. The northern, French side of the island is known as Saint-Martin, and measures 21 square miles. The southern, Dutch side of the island is known as Saint Maarten, and measures 16 square miles. To avoid confusion between the variations on the name, the two regions are commonly referred to as “the French side” and “the Dutch side.” Although the island is controlled by two different countries, there’s no real border, only delineating monuments and signs. Over 350 years ago the two countries agreed to allow residents of either country to travel across the border without difficulties.
Philipsburg is the capital of the Dutch side, and includes the cruise ship dock. In 2009, more than 1.3 million people visited the island via popular cruise lines, and construction of a second nearby wharf to accommodate a new generation of even larger cruise ships continues. The dredging has generated huge piles of sand on shore being used to rebuild Philipsburg’s main beach, previously eroded by storms. Marigot is the capital of the French side. Grand Case, also on the French side, features several excellent restaurants.Attractions worth visiting include the Butterfly Farm, which features hundreds of colorful butterflies under a tented mesh; the farm is a great attraction for families. At 1,400 feet, Pic du Paradis is the island’s highest point and features two viewing areas. Otherwise, beaches are the main attraction. The island has 37 beaches, most attached to hotels, and all are fine for swimming and sun bathing. Beachside bars and cafes are very popular attractions on the island, and offer exquisite European and Caribbean cuisine. Image result for st maartenThe character of the beaches varies widely, with family oriented beaches and, as befits an island with strong European influences, topless sun bathing. Nude sun bathing is also accepted but for the most part is limited to a section of Orient Beach on the French side and Cupecoy Beach on the Dutch side. Orient Bay also features an underwater marine reserve where snorkeling and other water sports are available.Perhaps the most famous beach here is Maho Bay, situated at the end of the airport’s runway, meaning large aircraft fly just feet over sunbathers’ heads. Some people actually engage in the practice of attempting to hold onto the airport fence as aircraft depart, although there have been injuries and deaths doing this. In any event, the view of the airplanes landing so close to the beach is a must-see. Just beyond Maho Bay is Mullet Bay, considered by some the nicest beach on the island, which offers food and drink vendors and beach lounger rentals, although few facilities. A full complement of tours and excursions are available, as well as water sports and parasailing.

Casinos are also a popular attraction on the island, with St. Maarten offering several casinos, including Atlantis World in the Cupecoy area, Casino Royale located in the Maho area, and Paradise Plaza and Tropicana located in the Cole Bay area. Phillipsburg has at least five casinos.

Worry Less and Smile More!

  • Anyone else tired of reading the news? It’s been a rough year on many fronts, with global economics, violent shootings and unpopular politics filling the news cycle. Some days it seems next to impossible to filter through the negativity and find good in the world.

    It begs the question: Are optimistic people living in a state of self-delusion? Where is the value of positivity? Before you give up on humanity, really take a look around. There is good everywhere. There are wonderful things that will soften even the most callous heart. The key is ending the cycle of negativity in favor of the power of positive thinking.

  • Unplugging

    Our constantly connected culture comes with some serious perks. Social media, smart phones and tablets help us connect with loved ones on a level never before dreamed possible. However, all that connectivity keeps us dialed into the outside world all the time.
    Designate a part of your day, preferably a large part, as tech-free time. Give yourself permission to disengage from cynical Facebook posts, guilt-inducing blogs, dreaming of a better life on Pinterest and following negative news stories. Use this time to engage with the people around you.

  • Take 30 minutes to read books to your kids, prepare a meal with your spouse or call a good friend. These simple acts will boost your sense of well-being. When we make a conscious effort to leave our digital life behind, we re-enter the real world where you can make priceless memories.
  • Accentuate the Positive

    You can find the good in the world. You can break the cycle of negative thinking. It all starts with where you choose to look. Some people wallow in the negative. You know the people; they are the dramatic, needy, negative, energy drainers who you feel obligated to stay close with. Let them go.

  • Surround yourself with positive people, and you will find yourself becoming more positive in the process. Choose to spend your time with those who inspire you, lift you up and help you see the world for the beautiful place it is. These good people will put your challenges in proper perspective and keep you from focusing your energy on things beyond your control.Here are some lessons we can learn from our children on being happy.

    Seeking the joy.

    Now that you’ve learned to worry less by reconnecting with the real world and ditching the negative influences, it’s time to smile more. Smile more and mean it. Smile more and feel it.

    Happiness is a choice. It’s one we make over and over, every single day. We can choose to find joy. Get outside, celebrate the big and little moments, find your passion and follow it with purpose. If you can’t find the good in your world, create it. When you dedicate your time and talents to bettering the lives of others, you become the good you want to see in the world. What a powerful sentiment.

  • The Inevitable Conclusion

    What are the consequences of letting go of worry and choosing to see the positive? First of all, you will stand out among the crowd. Some people may categorize you as naïve or idealistic, but you can’t please everyone all the time. Don’t worry about the detractors. However, there will be an even larger number of people awed by your influence. People will flock to you, and they will follow in your footsteps.

    Don’t run from leadership. Put yourself and your positive attitude out there. Disappointment may follow, but don’t let yourself get sucked back into the vortex of worry and self-doubt. Even the best people have horrible days, but bad days do not have to become a habit.

    The world is a beautiful place, full of good people who are doing a great work. Join their ranks. You have power over your emotional landscape, and you really can choose to worry less and smile more.
