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.
