In few years that I have lived on the surface of the earth, I have observed that, every family has at least a millionaire. If this is correct, why are many others in the family not excelling?
The possible causes of this abnormality might be:
(1) Wrong mentality: Many have a wrong mentality about life. Just because there is a millionaire in their family, they have the belief that the man or woman must be responsible for their upbringing and upkeep. If the millionaire member of your family started it, he/she cannot continue it. You must know that when you are of age, you have to take responsibility for your life. If the man or woman takes care of you, will he/she also take care of your family in the nearest future? You are not destined to be poor!
(2) Inability to Learn: Education does not only confine into a classroom setting. You can observe the life of the rich, if you don’t have access to ask them, and do the same thing that they did or they are doing. And don’t, ever tell me you don’t have access into the millionaire’s life in your family. God places him/her there strategically. Learn by observing, learn by asking, learn by imitating, and learn by actually doing. To have the same result as a person, simply do what the person does. Peradventure you dream of having a better result, learn from more than one millionaire. You can have one mentor, but you can also learn from many others.
(3) Late Start: You can succeed in anything, but you have to start early in life. Success doesn’t come easily, so when you start earlier, you will have enough time to learn all that you did not fully learn from your millionaire parents or relatives. Early start pays off. It doesn’t make sense to rest before work; to enjoy before working hard.
(4) Laziness: A lazy man can never become a millionaire. It takes hard work to make it. After you have learnt from the millionaire in your family, put to practice what you have gained, and give it all it takes to succeed therein.
If one person can be a millionaire in your family, it therefore means nothing is wrong with your brain. You’re not dull — you’re not a dullard and you’re not a slow learner. If you can have a millionaire in your family, it therefore means you can also make it, if only you can do what he/she is doing.
However, you have to be humble enough and move closer to serve him/her and learn from the millionaire in your family. Whenever you visit, don’t let it be because of money, but because of wisdom. Money is actually important, but wisdom is much more important. It is wisdom that begets accumulation of money. People would always challenge a poor man that claims he is wise.
A rich man is the wise man, be humble to learn from him. If you claim you are very wise, why can’t you use your wisdom in the accumulation of wealth that is very useful in this life that we are in?
