Millionaire mind | Wealth Files Part 6

If something bad happens to you e.g. a redundancy do you look at it as an obstacle or an opportunity?

Rich people see potential growth and they focus on rewards. Poor people see potential loss, and focus on the risks.

Millionaire Mind | Wealth Files

 

This is the sixth post on things I have learned from “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”

Last post I talked about the first four Wealth Files.  Today I am going to talk about the next three.
These Wealth Files  are from ‘Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T Harv Eker

Wealth File #5
Rich People Focus on Opportunities. Poor People focus on Obstacles

If something bad happens to you e.g. a redundancy do you look at it as an obstacle or an opportunity?

Rich people see potential growth and they focus on rewards.  Poor people see potential loss, and focus on the risks.

Poor people generally make choices based on fear, their minds are constantly scanning for what is wrong or could go wrong in any situation.  Their primary mind-set is what if it doesn’t work? Or more often, “It won’t work.” Middle class people are slightly more optimistic.  Their mind-set is “I sure hope this works.”

Rich people expect to succeed, they have confidence in their abilities, creativity and believe that if stuff goes wrong they will find another way to succeed.

Rich people focus on what they want, while poor people focus on what they do not.  Remember what you focus on expands.  Because rich people focus on the opportunities in everything, opportunities abound for them.

Your field of focus determines what you find in life.

For me when I was made redundant I focussed on it as an opportunity.  For me it was a chance to put some serious work into this business, doing blogging etc.  It was also an opportunity for me to experience to some degree the life I want to lead of freedom.  Now work opportunities are coming my way so I will not have the freedom again but will keep working on that in my own time.

Harv Eker says if you want to get rich focus on making, keeping and investing your money.  If you want to be poor, focus on spending your money.

Rich people do research quickly, and then take action.  Poor people are known to do the research and then keep doing the research without ever taking action.

Rich people trust that once they are in the game they can make intelligent decisions in the present moment, make corrections, and adjust their directions along the way.

Rich People admire other rich and successful people.  Poor people resent rich and successful people.

How do you look at rich people?  Do you look at them and want to associate with them and learn from them or do you think they are bad in some way?  If you think rich people are bad you will never be rich.  You need to change that mental programming.

Me, personally I am loving my association with rich people and am soaking up as much of their knowledge as I possibly can. When I look back at my history my husband and I have always been around rich and successful people.  Over the years we have met some very rich people, and our first real introduction was our first multi-level marketing company. We have always enjoyed spending time with the top earners and have made an effort to do so in every other business we have been associated with.  To me rich people are my mentors, they have done it, so I am going to follow in their footsteps as much as possible.

The truth is resenting the rich is one of the surest ways to stay broke.  Instead of resenting the rich we need to start admiring the rich blessing them and loving them.  That way when you become rich other people will admire you, bless you and love you instead of resent the heck out of you the way you might do them now.  One of the sayings in in Hawaii based on old Huna Wisdom is

“Bless that which you want.  If you see a person with a beautiful home, bless that person and that home.  If you see a person with a beautiful car, bless that person and bless that car. If you see a person with a loving family, bless that family and bless that person.  If you see a person with a beautiful body bless that person and bless their body.  In other words Bless that which you want”

 

Wealth File #7
Rich People Associate with positive, successful people.  Poor people associate with negative or unsuccessful people

Take a look at the people around you.  What sort of people are they? Do they celebrate the success of others or do they put down their success?

Harv Eker says the fastest and easiest way to create wealth is to learn exactly how rich people, who are masters of money, play the game.  The goal is simply model their inner and outer strategies.  If you take the exact same actions and have the exact same mind-set, chances are good you will get the exact same results.

Here is Harv’s answer if the loved ones you are closest too are negative

“First don’t bother trying to get negative people to change. That’s not your job.  Your job is to use what you have learned to better yourself and your life.  Be the model, be successful, be happy, then maybe – and I stress Maybe- they’ll see the light (in you) and want some of it.  Again, energy is contagious.  Darkness dissipates in light. People actually have to work hard to stay “dark” when light is all around them.  Your job is simply to be the best you can be.  If they choose to ask the secret, tell them.

Second keep in mind another principle that is taught in another of Harv’s courses “everything happens for a reason and that reason is there to assist me.” Yes it is difficult to be positive and conscious around people and circumstances that are negative, but that’s your test! Just as steel is hardened in the fire, if you can remain true to your values while others around you are full of doubt and even condemnation, you’ll grow faster and stronger”

Did you know that most people earn within 20% of the average income of their closest friends?  That’s why you’d better watch whom you associate with and choose whom you spend your time with carefully.

“If you want to fly with the eagles, don’t swim with the ducks”

Rich people hang around with winners.  Poor people hang around with losers.  Why? It’s a matter of comfort

Another Business Reason

My husband and I are what are called Red Angels – this means that we give a regular contribution

 

Life Flight TrustHi all, yesterday I talked about my favourite charity and reason for doing online marketing and getting financially free.  Today I want to talk about another charity which is close to my heart.

My husband and I are what are called Red Angels – this means that we give a regular contribution to the Life Flight Trust.  Many years ago my husband and I were members of the emergency response unit. This was a Civil Defence rescue team and as part of our training we did some work with the Westpac Rescue Helicopter and the Life Flight trust. These people are called out to help people that need air ambulance help immediately.

Here is the History and how the Life Flight Trust came about

Belief in a better way

In 1929 a boy was born next to the runway in Wellington, his name was Peter Button. He grew up watching planes and helping out at the local fire station. From that runway, Peter’s passion for flying became a vision for a better way for New Zealand.

The Wahine disaster

Peter’s house shook as Cyclone Giselle, one of the worst storms to ever hit New Zealand, reached Wellington in 1968. He heard the cyclone had caused the inter-island ferry Wahine to come aground in Wellington Harbour so he rushed to the beach to help.

As 51 people drowned in sight of shore Peter realised a helicopter would have been able to rescue people from the sea. On that beach he famously said the words that founded Life Flight, “There has to be a better way.”

History in the making

Despite challenging bureaucracy and lack of funding Peter learned to fly and created a rescue helicopter service. He made history and eventually his work culminated in the launch of The Life Flight Trust. The Trust’s operations and equipment set records and lead the way in air rescue work in New Zealand and around the world.

Local hero

Peter Button became a household name and a local hero. In 1982 his work was recognised with an OBE and he also received a Queen’s Gallantry Medal for bravery in 1987.

 Tragedy strikes

In 1987 Peter was flying the Westpac Rescue Helicopter on a police mission when the machine hit power lines. The crash was fatal for all those onboard.

Thousands lined the streets of Wellington for the memorial service and a cortege of helicopters flew overhead to honour the loss of one of New Zealand’s heroes.

The Governor General, Sir Peter Reeves, became patron of The Life Flight Trust and a public appeal was launched in Peter’s memory. Donations poured in to continue his vision.

The dream is realised

Peter Button’s incredible vision of a 24/7 dedicated emergency air service has gone on to save more than 22,000 lives around New Zealand. Through the support of the community, Life Flight has become the organisation one pioneering New Zealander dreamed of.

Find out how you can help continue Peter Button’s life-saving dream.

 

As you can see this plays a big part in the life of Wellingtonians.

This is something I would love to be able to give more time as well as finance to, and am looking forward to being able to in the future.
