Millionaire Mind | Wealth Files Part 10

Fear is the biggest thing that stops us from taking action. It is the biggest obstacle not only to success but to happiness as well. Therefore the biggest differences between rich people and poor people is that rich people are willing to act in spite of fear. Poor or unsuccessful people let the fear stop them.

In the last post we discussed Wealth principles 14 and 15.  Today we are going to discuss the next wealth file.

Wealth File #16
The first is Rich People act in spite of fear.  Poor people let fear stop them.

Action is the bridge between thoughts and meditations and visualisations, so if action is so important what is it that prevents us from taking the actions we know we need to take?


Fear is the biggest thing that stops us from taking action.  It is the biggest obstacle not only to success but to happiness as well.  Therefore the biggest differences between rich people and poor people is that rich people are willing to act in spite of fear.  Poor or unsuccessful people let the fear stop them.

What we need to do is face the fear and then do the action anyway.  A book I read a number of years ago and the Harv talks about is by Susan Jeffers is “Feel the Fear and Do it anyway”.  This book was the beginning of changing my lifestyle.  The biggest problem is that is that people want to wait until the fear subsides.  The big thing is to do it anyway.

One of the Wealth principles relating to this is ” A true warrior can “tame the cobra of fear”.  It is imperative to realise that it is not necessary to try to get rid of the fear in order to succeed.  Rich and successful people have fear, rich and successful people have doubts and rich and successful people have worries.  They just don’t let these feelings stop them.

You have to train yourself to not be stopped by anything.

If you are willing to do only what’s easy, life will be hard.  But if you are willing to do what’s hard, life will be easy.

The first time you tried something new, was it uncomfortable or comfortable?  The more you did it the more comfortable it becomes doesn’t it?  When I first started this business I was petrified of doing videos and blogging now I am comfortable doing both.  I am picking up the camera and doing a video whenever I feel the urge now so it has been a huge step of getting out of what was my comfort zone.

Remember the only time you are actually growing is when you are comfortable.  If you want to be rich and successful, you’d better get used to been uncomfortable.   Consciously practice going out of your comfort zone and doing what scares you.

A great example of getting out of your comfort zone is an exercise which Harv does at his evening seminars and me and my husband have done at one of our seminars where you take a wooden arrow with a metal tip and put the metal tip into the soft part of your throat.  The other person you are doing this with then holds the other end of the arrow against their outstretched palm.  The idea is to walk straight into the arrow and break it using only your throat before it pierces through your neck.  The feeling of achieving this is amazing and makes you know that nothing can stop you in the future.  You can overcome anything.  As a result of this exercise I have taken life and not let any of the disappointments get to me but instead look at everything as a new opportunity.
