Is the Rich the People Who are Greedy?

A big Thanks to Robert Kiyosaki for these wise words. Shines a new light on old fashioned thinking.

It’s the poor who are greedy, NOT the rich.

What?!?

I hear from people who are dissatisfied about their financial situation a lot. What do they say is the cause?

Rich people.

Guess what? If you want to blame anyone, start blaming yourself for your situation.

Ask yourself, “What have you done today to improve your situation?”

What course are you taking? What book are you reading? What business are you starting?

Most people they tell me that the rich are greedy and hoard all the money, leaving the “rest of us” to suffer. They claim that they themselves don’t care about money, not like those greedy, money-hungry rich folks.

But I ask them, what does that not caring look like? Struggling with bills every month, just getting by, with nothing left over for fun, or education, or for giving to those less fortunate.

In fact, they need help themselves, so how can they help others?

In my experience, a lot of poor people are more “greedy” than rich people.

Many poor people insist that:

– The rich should pay all the taxes

– The government should take care of them

– They deserve a higher salary for doing the bare minimum at work

– Wealth should be “redistributed” (meaning THEY get money that someone else earned).

Poor people criticize the rich for being “privileged.”

Well, I would go so far as to criticize anyone who feels that way as being “entitled!”

So much of the media fans the flames. Painting rich people as villains. As if being smart, hardworking and successful were some kind of a crime.

No wonder so many people say they don’t care about money, and they’ll argue with anyone who points out this truth: Those “mean” rich people they hate so much are some of the most generous people around.

Take Bill Gates.

Yes, he’s the wealthiest man in the world, so he has more to give. But get this, according to “Wealth-X”, a wealth research firm, Mr. Gates has donated 32% of his $82.4 billion net worth so far. That’s $27 Billion.

If the average “non-rich” household income is roughly $76,000/year, 32% donated over a 30-year career would be $729,600.

(How many “non-rich” people do you know who would give that much?)

Bill Gates is not alone. Most ultra-wealthy people I know give away more money every year than most people will ever earn in their lifetimes.

My experience is that they are all actively LOOKING for ways to give back.

To them, the biggest luxury of being rich isn’t owning a yacht or an island… it’s having the capacity to make a real difference in the world.

Contrast that with people who are always simply looking for a handout.

So, who’s “greedy” now?

For those who want to keep blaming others for why they’re not where they want to be, I’m not here to change their minds.

For anyone who believes that the world owes them a living, they’re not welcome in my world.

But I am here to help people who want to accept responsibility for their life and for making it better!

You CANNOT Manage Time. You have 24 hours at your disposal. 

You CANNOT Manage Time. You have 24 hours at your disposal.

Chrissy and Col here… manage time, good luck.

       

Most likely you have not been loved or hated as much as Donald Trump has but… (he’s a funny fella…)

24 hours.  That’s how much each one of us have each day at our disposal.

You. Me. Donald Trump. Everyone. Time is the great equalizer.

So how come some people get a lot of things done in a day, while others can’t do one single thing? We all have the same hours in a day, so it can’t be the “lack of time”.

The biggest difference between the successful and the poor is how they spend their free time. 

It’s what we DO with our time, the way we organize our time, is what counts and makes the difference.

I know that “not enough time” is something that we’ve all said at one point in our lives.

You have 24 hours at your disposal. 

Let’s say you sleep/rest 8 hours per day. You’re left with 16 hours.

And let’s say you have a full-time 9-5 job. And you work for 8 hours there, plus 2 hours to commute to and from work. You’re left with 6 hours.

And let’s assume that you have a family and you want to spend some time with them. Take 2-3 hours for that.

And now you’re left with 3-4 hours.

You can watch reruns of Seinfeld. You can watch sports. Or you can actually work on your side business.

It’s your choice.

How you spend your free times determines your success in life. 

A lot of people have built a stable 5 and 6-figure businesses with only a couple hours a day. Which still leaves you 1-2 hours of TV/Relaxation time at night, or 1 hour relaxation and 1 hour to work out!

Do you have other responsibilities, and you have only an hour or two per day? OK, start with that.  You’ll find very quickly that you can get a lot done in that time. When you annualise that time it is 730 hours per year. That’s a lot of time from just 2 hours a day.

Just imagine what you can do with 730 hours concentrating on a new business venture… WOW!!!

The key to more time is systemization, preparation, and automation.

This is where our business in a box, comes in.

It’s all about a better Lifestyle.

The Prosperity of Life SCAM???

Scam… It’s a funny word.

The word scam has negative connotations right from the start, and whenever a person or businesses name is mentioned in the same sentence, they are guilty until proven innocent.

scam

The dictionary says,

scam
skam/

noun

informal
  1. 1.
    a dishonest scheme; a fraud.
    “an insurance scam”
    synonyms: fraudswindle, fraudulent scheme, rackettrickdiddleMore
verb
  1. 1.
    swindle.
    “a guy that scams old pensioners out of their savings”
    Now, this is all open to opinions of the individuals involved.  In the ten years we have been with Prosperity of Life,  Chrissy and I  have heard it all.

What we have found over the decades we have been operating is, from the small amount  of the negative scam google gossip that is out there, they all have one agenda. (And that is ALL, not some).

They are all pushing there own business opportunity or scheme or scam of some sort, or whatever it is, by using successful businesses as their vehicle. They all prey on successful businesses like Prosperity of Life, because of the magnetic attraction that anything negative has. Most of which is fiction, opinions or assumptions. Just look at any news program. 90% of the program is negative because that sells more advertising time. People seem to be attracted to the negative while positive gets a back seat. Very odd indeed.

Some actually believe they are ‘saving the world’ by putting their opinion and assumptions in writing. (sarcasm… wow! aren’t we lucky you are wiser than the rest… we’re saved!)

What is that saying?….

“an idiot with a microphone is just a loud idiot”

scam

We all remember the game we played at school called Chinese Whispers.

You start of with 30 kids with a story, and it is passed on down the line. By the time the story gets to the last person it is completely different to when it started.

No similarities at all.

This is exactly what most of google gossip is. Chinese Whispers.

These ‘anti-scam artists’ sites are just selling advertising on their sites and making a killing, at the expense of great legitimate businesses. Not so much monetary expense but reputation expense. But also lost opportunity expense to the people inquiring about the business opportunity.

Most people see right through this negative scam garbage, and they are the ones who do really well in Prosperity of Life. The people who still believe in the google gossip will always be at the effect of the masses or part of the herd, so from that, they would never go past our interview process, or even get close to it.

Our former bank even used google gossip as their tool to close our accounts…. how bazaar…and very unprofessional. We now have a smarter bank.

When it comes down to finding the facts about a business opportunity like Prosperity of Life, go straight to the source and get the real info.

Don’t get sucked into the negative void because that will destroy an otherwise great opportunity for you.

We have been successfully operating and growing for decades. And for a business to do that we must be doing things correctly.

We are all fairly intelligent people. Do your own due diligence and work out for yourself what is fact, and what is fiction. Don’t procrastinate as time is tickin’.

But be careful because… scam chuckle chuckle…

My thanks also go to my very good friends, Rachel and Shane Krider for being instrumental in me travelling this $uccessful yellow brick road.

The Best Ways to Beat Procrastination.

procrastination

Perseverance is about as important to achievement as gasoline is to driving a car. Sure, there will be times when you feel like you’re spinning your wheels, but you’ll always get out of the rut with genuine perseverance. Without it, you won’t even be able to start your engine. Procrastination will stop you from picking up you keys.

The opposite of perseverance is procrastination. Perseverance means you never quit. Procrastination usually means you never get started, although the inability to finish something is also a form of procrastination.

Ask people why they procrastinate and you’ll often hear something like this: “I’m a perfectionist. Everything has to be just right before I can get down to work. No distractions; not too much noise; and of course I have to be feeling well physically, too. I can’t work when I have a headache.” The other end of procrastination—being unable to finish—also has a perfectionist explanation: “I’m just never satisfied; I’m my own harshest critic; if all the i’s aren’t dotted and all the t’s aren’t crossed, I just can’t consider that I’m done. That’s just the way I am, and I’ll probably never change.”

Do you see what’s going on here? A fault is being turned into a virtue. The perfectionist is saying their standards are just too high for this world. This fault-into-virtue syndrome is a common defense when people are called upon to discuss their weaknesses, but in the end it’s just a very pious kind of excuse-making. It certainly doesn’t have anything to do with what’s really behind procrastination.

Remember, the basis of procrastination could be fear of failure. That’s what perfectionism really is, once you take a hard look at it. What’s the difference between being afraid of being less-than-perfect or afraid of anything else? You’re still paralyzed by fear. What’s the difference between never starting or never finishing? You’re still stuck. You’re still going nowhere. You’re still overwhelmed by whatever task is before you. You’re still allowing yourself to be dominated by a negative vision of the future in which you see yourself being criticized, laughed at or punished. This negative vision of the future is really a mechanism that allows you to do nothing. It’s a very convenient mental tool.

I’m going to tell you how to beat procrastination. I’m going to show you how to turn procrastination into perseverance, and if you do what I suggest, the process will be virtually painless. It involves using two very powerful principles that foster productivity and perseverance instead of passivity and procrastination.

Break it down.

No matter what you’re trying to accomplish, whether it’s writing a book, climbing a mountain or painting a house, the key to achievement is your ability to break down the task into manageable pieces and knock them off one at one time. Focus on accomplishing what’s right in front of you at this moment. Ignore what’s off in the distance someplace. Substitute real-time positive thinking for negative future visualization.

Suppose I ask you if you could write a 400-page novel. Sounds impossible, right? But suppose I ask you a different question. Suppose I ask if you can write a page and a quarter a day for one year. Do you think you could do it? Now the task is starting to seem more manageable. We’re breaking down the 400-page book into bite-size pieces. Even so, I suspect many people would still find the prospect intimidating. Do you know why? Writing a page and a quarter may not seem so bad, but you’re being asked to look ahead one whole year. When people start to look that far ahead, many of them automatically go into a negative mode. So let me formulate the idea of writing a book in yet another way. Let me break it down even more.

Suppose I ask you if you can fill up a page and a quarter with words—not for a year, not for a month, not even for a week, but just today? Don’t look any further ahead than that. I believe most people would confidently declare that they could accomplish that. These are the same people who feel totally incapable of writing a whole book.

If I said the same thing to those people tomorrow—if I told them, I don’t want you to look back, and I don’t want you to look ahead, I just want you to fill up a page and a quarter this very day—do you think they could do it?

One day at a time. We’ve all heard that phrase. That’s what we’re doing here. We’re breaking down the time required for a major task into one-day segments, and we’re breaking down the work involved in writing a 400-page book into page-and-a-quarter increments.

Keep this up for one year, and you’ll write the book. Discipline yourself to look neither forward nor backward and you can accomplish things you never thought you could possibly do. And it all begins with those three words: Break it down.

Write it down.

We know how important writing is to goal-setting. The writing you’ll do for beating procrastination is very similar. Instead of focusing on the future, you’re going to be writing about the present just as you experience it every day. Instead of describing the things you want to do or the places you want to go, you’re going to describe what you actually do with your time, and you’re going to keep a written record of the places you actually go.

In other words, you’re going to keep a diary of your activities. And you’re going to be amazed by the distractions, detours and downright wastes of time you engage in during the course of a day. All of these get in the way of achieving your goals. For many people, it’s almost like they planned it that way, and maybe at some unconscious level they did. The great thing about keeping a time diary is that it brings all this out in the open. It forces you to see what you’re actually doing—and what you’re not doing.

Your time diary doesn’t have to be anything elaborate. Just buy a little spiral notebook that you can easily carry in your pocket.  When you go to lunch, when you drive across town, when you go to the dry cleaners, when you spend some time shooting the breeze at the copying machine, make a quick note of the time you began the activity and the time it ends. Try to make this notation as soon as possible; if it’s inconvenient to do it immediately, you can do it later. But you should make an entry in your time diary at least once every 30 minutes, and you should keep this up for at least a week.

Break it down. Write it down. These two techniques are very straightforward. But don’t let that fool you: These are powerful and effective productivity techniques. This is how you beat procrastination. This is how you get yourself started.
