So you think you’ve got what it takes to become an enlightened millionaire? Check out these three crucial signs to determine if you do.
1- You believe in the spirit of abundance and the laws of attraction.
For some of you this might sound like hippy crap right out of the gate. But, I urge you to relax and read on anyway.
Look, I’m not saying that you have to own the book The Secret or even subscribe to new age religious beliefs. I’m just saying that you have to believe that the world is abundant with love, opportunities and wealth. You have to know in your heart that this abundance can be obtained and shared with others and that you can be the one to do it.
Obviously in a world like ours with so much inequality and poverty, it can be hard to always believe in the spirit of abundance. I too am overwhelmed with the incredible amount of suffering around the world but deep down I still believe that there is a huge amount of good in each of us and that we all have the potential for greatness.
In one of the most important books for any future enlightened millionaire to read, Think & Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill discusses the importance of controlling one’s own thoughts in order to achieve success, as well as the energy that thoughts have and their ability to attract other thoughts. He talks about a secret to success but never really reveals what that secret may be. However if you look into the title of the book THINK & Grow Rich it may seem that he is talking about one’s thoughts as the secret to success.
No concept could be more important to your growth and success as an Internet Marketer. Your thoughts are the basis behind your beliefs and thus your actions. If you don’t think you are worthy of the abundance of love, opportunities and money in this world, you will never receive them. If you don’t believe that you can actually build a successful online business you will never build one. See how this works? Your thoughts become your beliefs, which eventually become your actions.
2- You believe that true wealth is about more than money
If the only reason you want to become a millionaire is so you can have a nice house and a fancy car, it’s going to be a lonely journey. The material shit can be lost or stolen at the drop of a hat. And, in the end the materials won’t make you happy. True wealth is about way more than money.
To have true wealth we must work toward healthy communities, mutual caring and support for one another, investing in the human capital of productive people and the natural capital of healthy ecosystems and believing that everyone deserves a share of the abundance we create.
The BMW or the fancy mansion or whatever doesn’t have to become a bad thing. Once true wealth is realized the material bullshit will either not matter or happen without effort.
A great example of an online marketer who is an enlightened millionaire with true wealth is my personal mentor and inspiration Ann Sieg. She has made her millions with a business model built to help others do the same. Her entire mission is to educate and empower people to create true wealth. She believes in the spirit of abundance and the laws of attraction and uses both to grow her business. She has motivated and inspired thousands of us to follow her lead and make a positive impact on the world around us.
3- Your why is bigger than yourself and your personal bottom line
Someone like Ann Sieg has a why bigger than herself or her bank account.
Like most of us, Ann was stressed out and broke when she finally began making strides toward enlightened millionaire status. And like many people her initial “why” was related to her family’s finances and the well being of her husband, whose job was basically killing him slowly and not even covering all the expenses.
But her personal finances weren’t her only motivation. She also saw thousands upon thousands of people struggling to make their home businesses succeed and once she learned how to grow her own business using the Internet she set forth to teach as many people as possible.
So yeah your why is always going to be a little selfish (in a good way) you can’t help others without helping yourself first. But again, if your why is only about a new car or boat or some material goods you won’t have the kind of success that the enlightened millionaires have. You may have money but will you have happiness?
Your why is also important as a motivating factor. Yes your why should include paying off your school loans or helping your aging parents or even paying your utilities so you don’t freeze. But if you can tap into something greater than your personal needs you may find it helps you stay focused after you’ve made enough to keep the lights on and the heat running.
With all the suffering out there, it shouldn’t be that hard for any of us to create a “why” that is bigger than our needs alone.
Do you have what it takes?
A- believe that the world has abundance and that you can tap into that abundance to build your business?
B- want more from life than just money and materials?
C- want to help others achieve greatness and transcend poverty?
If you believe in these three things then you have what it takes to become an enlightened millionaire!
So? What are you waiting for? Lots of people are not as fortunate as we are and really need our help. Let’s take advantage of our opportunities and help the world around us.
