1. I need a reason greater than reality. The power of spirit.the reason or a purpose is a combination of "wants and don't wants". If you don't want to work as an employee for all your life, then you will do something to make what you "want in life to become.
2. Choose daily.This is the reason why we want our freedom to choose. Our spending habits reflects who we are.
3. Choose friends carefully. My mother used to tell me before this line " tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are" of course if your friends are achievers, would you not aspire also to become achievers too.
4.Master a formula and then learn a new one.While its true that you become what you study in most cases, take for example when you study on how to get rich,your mind is so powerful that you become what you put in your head. When you master the formula, learn a new skills that would help you grow more.
5. Pay yourself first. R.Kiyosaki said that if you don't have the power to control yourself, then don't try to get rich. It is the common mistake why most lottery winners go broke soon after winning millions. Its the lack of self discipline that causes people who get a raise and immediately go out and spent lavishly. Save first, before distributing your income to your expenses. This way you will be motivated to find other resources to pay your bills without sacrificing your savings account.
