A Few Simple Things You Must Do If You Want To Be Wealthy
Making money is easy when you move to cause rather than living out effects.
Let me draw a simple analogy to clarify my point.
Imagine standing before a huge waterfall. You're thirsty and the water is fresh, clean, and pure. You can take as much as you like.
How much can you take home with you?
It all depends on the size of your container.
You can take a thimble, a small cup, a gallon bucket, a barrel, or even a tank truck.
Similarly, the amount of money in the world is like this fountain of abundance. Trillions of dollars circulate around the world. The fountain is abundant.
Some people can hold billions, others millions, others hundreds of thousands, others tens of thousands, others thousands, others hundreds, and yet others only a pocketful.
These things are actually only the effects.
Effect is what you see in the visible world. They are the results of a wealth building strategy that worked.
What, however, are the causes? How are people able to build wealth in the first place?
Cause is what happens in the invisible world before the effect becomes apparent in the world of the senses.
The cause of money is thought, and the amount of money in your life is based on only one thing: the size of your thinking. This is the most fundamental wealth knowledge you need to change your destiny.
If you're a small thinker, you go to the fountain of abundance with a small container. It may be a tin can to hold enough change to keep you alive. It may be a bucket that gives you enough to survive in some comfort?but not enough to be happy.
If, on the other hand, you're a big thinker, you go to the fountain of abundance driving your tank truck and you live really well, with all the necessities of life easily taken care of for your generation and maybe one or two generations after you. You're even in a place to share wealth. You're a master at some wealth building system.
Then, of course, there are the really big thinkers. They don't just have a tank truck--they have a whole fleet of tank trucks lining up before the fountain of abundance. They can, if they choose, buy small islands.
Your thinking decides the size of the container you use to earn money.
How do you expand your thinking to be bigger?
The first thing you do is use your imagination. If you simply practice learning how to think in bigger and bigger amounts, you'll find a better size to hold the abundance that you want to have in your life.
The next thing you'll want to expand is the size of your heart. The more you can give of value and the larger the amount of people that you can serve, the more money that you'll make.
This is why the higher up you are in an organization, the more people you serve, and, consequently, the higher your salary.
But, of course, an even better way to make money is to work for yourself. When you work for yourself, then your pool of people is almost unlimited. The greater the benefit that you offer others, the more people you will find to accept that offer.
Finally, when your imagination and your heart have been stretched enough, you'll begin to seek ways to acquire knowledge of your field and before you know it you'll be a highly-paid expert.
The amount of money in the world is like this fountain. Trillions of dollars float around the planet. Creating wealth is a skill that many people and nations have learned.
It is my sincere hope that I have given you some valuable ideas to mull over. When you consider how much better your life will be when you are in charge, you may want to look even deeper into how you can expand your imagination, your generosity, and your knowledge of your industry or profession.

My Grandmother Never Had a Degree
There were four generations sitting at the kitchen table, smacking on Mommy's delicious meal-somehow we never made it to the dining room.

Breaking Even: When is Enough, Enough?
I had the most interesting discussion today with a friend of mine. He and I were chatting about the economy, his job, families, and life in general. The one point that he kept raising was that of his "needing to do more" to pay the bills, be with his family, get promoted at work, fix the hot water heater, etc. It's always the "need to do more" to better accommodate more.
