You must have to wish for what you want, only having qualities is not sufficient. If you set your expectations and are up for any challenge, you’re on the right track. After all, “no one would ever strike it rich and live their dreams without huge expectations,” Siebold writes. “The person with a ‘closed’ mind on any subject rarely gets ahead,” writes Hill.
The rich “would rather be educated than entertained,” Siebold writes in “How Rich People Think.”
One very important sign that you’ll be rich is your need for constant growth. Successful people are always working on improving themselves. They’re reading, learning, and educating themselves all the time. They work hard on themselves, not behind money not behind others but on themselves. Dan Lok has read over 2,000 books. He’s constantly attending learning events and challenging himself to grow. Buffett spends 80% of his day reading.
If you want to be rich, you have to focus on educating yourself and constantly improving. Listen to podcasts, videos on your way to work, read books when your computer, attend seminars, and meet people. If you can, the best thing to do to for yourself is to find a mentor too who can guide you through your learning process.
“Most of us are good ‘starters’ but poor ‘finishers’ of everything we begin,” Hill writes in “Think and Grow Rich.” The majority of people “are prone to give up at the first signs of defeat,” he says, but not the rich, who don’t stop until they get what they want.
“If the first plan which you adopt does not work successfully, replace it with a new plan; if this new plan fails to work, replace it in turn with still another, and so on, until you find a plan which does work,” says Hill.
