Money is not THE problem!!!!!!!!!!!

Whenever I read a story about people with wealth – inventors, celebrities, business owners, investors, richest man/woman in the world, movies stars, sports stars, oil barons, land owners, visionaries, shipping magnates, etc, etc, and there is a place for comments underneath the story, there are people who want the millionaires to give away it with them.

This blows my mind….. Think about it…I know some people inherited their wealth, but somebody had to work for the money in the first place, then made the money work for them. Granted there are people that are not able to think for themselves, due to injury, disease, or mental inability. We that can think for ourselves and become so successful can help those truly not able to help themselves.

Money is just a means to acquire your wants and needs. It is inanimate, usually just paper, Simple. Yes. So what are you willing to do to be like them? the millionaires, billionaires. Money, or the lack of money, is not the problem. It is our attitude, our willingness to act, to change our thinking, to learn how, to research the best route to achieve our desires.

Most people are comfortable blaming the world, community, family, school, everybody else for their own lack of willingness. Most people complain they don’t make enough money, the boss doesn’t pay you enough, the boss doesn’t see your potential, work 2 or 3 jobs to make ends meet. Most people wait for opportunity to find them, to knock on their door and even when it does actually knock on the door, they ‘have think about it’, what they have to give up to become a success – ‘there is a movie I want to watch first’ or ‘I’ll have a beer and think about it’ or ‘ I’ll do it later’, or ‘(you fill in this excuse)’. Opportunities are NEVER missed, if you don’t answer it when it knocks on your door, somebody else will. Most people justify their lack of success (use your own definition of what success means to you) on circumstances. The circumstances are simply you don’t want to do what you need to do. You ARE the circumstances.

I was the justifier, I was the rationaliser, I was the one with all the excuses, and believe me when I say “nobody’s knows the troubles I’ve seen….”

I call tell you with complete honesty that my circumstances have changed, my attitude has changed, my willingness has increased. I appreciate the millionaires that share their Rags to Riches stories, I wish them well, health and happiness. I am grateful that they were willing to share their stories, and what they were willing to do to get to the top.

Instead of being envious, how about changing your circumstances. How about being the best that you can be, and bring along those that want the best too. When you are rich – you can decide what to do with your own wealth, share it, grow it or give it away.

Of course this is just my opinion.

The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.
