Anthony Robbins' 12 Reasons Why Most People Don't Get Wealthy
Anthony Robbins' 12 Reasons Why Most People Don't Get Wealthy
By David Cameron
According to Wallace Wattles, in his popular wealth treatise
called the Science of Getting Rich, said that, "There is a
science of getting rich, and it is an exact science, like algebra
or arithmetic. There are certain laws which govern the process of
acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by
anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty."
It is true. Those who make wealth know that it comes about by
application of simple rules and principles. Those who don't make
wealth don't know about these simple things, and so they assume
that wealth is a result of luck or pure chance or something just
as superstitious or silly.
Anthony Robbins is one of the top success coaches in the world,
having coached star sports players, heads of states and Fortune
500 executives. In his Get The Edge program, he listed down 12
specific reasons he has come to observe to be the leading causes
for most people's lack of wealth. Here they are.....
1. They never decide and really define, very specifically,
what wealth means for them. The keyword here is specifically. Can
you imagine how hard it would be to build a car or a plane
without making a blueprint or sketch drawings of it first? You
have to know what your target is before you go chasing after it.
2. They make wealth a moving target instead of a fixed one
(this is related to point one above). Once you have your target,
fix it. Don't change it until you reach it. You must accomplish
each step, celebrate, and then set course for a new step, a new
3. They define it in a way that seems unreachable. You only
achieve what you believe. No more, no less. So you must make it
believable for you. Set goals that will make you move forward and
stretch, but not too high that even you yourself don't believe
you can. Take the biggest step you believe you can, achieve it,
then take the next biggest you believe you can. This will build
positive reinforcement in your self-confidence as well.
4. They never start. Ok, this is obvious. If you keep
thinking about it forever, it will forever remain in the thought
level. You have to act! Start somewhere, anywhere! Only after you
start do you begin to get some feedback which will help you plot
your course better. The aircraft has to first take off before it
starts to adjust course for its destination. You must start,
somewhere, anywhere, doesn't matter, just start! Act!
5. They never make it a must. Let me explain what it means
to make it a must. It means marshalling all your intent, your
will, your direction, into one singular flow that is directed
towards your goal. All obstacles are viewed as challenges to be
overcome. You will meet obstacles, and so expect it, but also
expect to move forward anyways. Use your obstacles to develop
strength and skills, don't run away. Find out how to go past
them. Find out! There is always a way, always. And if your
emotions are acting against your desire, embrace them, learn what
they are, know yourself, but keep moving forward. Make it a must,
and it will happen. Guaranteed. You don't know in how many steps
it will take, but you know it will happen.
6. They don't have a realistic plan. If you want to do
something, find out how it is done from someone who has done it
before. Make a realistic plan. Copy from those who have succeeded
before you. But don't throw away your intuition. Your intuition
is extremely powerful once you learn how to listen to it with
7. If they have a realistic plan, they never follow through
on the plan. Well, if you don't follow the plan, who will?
8. They give responsibility to others ("experts") instead of
to themselves. This way, they never really learn how to do it,
and if there are failures they never learn why the failures
happened and so they are bound to repeat them. It is a good idea
to get advice, but do it yourself. At least understand it
yourself even if you will delegate the actual doing.
9. They give up when they face challenges. Going through the
challenges is what has made people rich, not giving up. Look,
there are always challenges. So get used to that. You will only
get where you wish to get to if you are willing to face the
challenges along the path. All challenges are opportunities
dressed in work clothes, remember that. After the challenge is
over, you will discover the amazing fruit it held for you.
10. They fail to conduct their lives as a business; they
never ensure that they make a profit year by year. Get a personal
finance package like Quicken or Microsoft Money. you need to have
budgets and cash flow statements for your personal finances and
your businesses. It is easy with those software packages. If you
don't keep records and track, you wont know when you are making
or losing money until it is embarrassingly too late.
11. They allow other people's ideas to affect their decisions
unreasonably. There will always be people who don't believe in
your way, or who are pessimistic, who try to pull you down, or
whatever. And they will sometimes be your closest friends and
family. You cannot change that - they have a right to be who they
are. It is OK. Allow them their thoughts, don't judge them for
that, but don't feel obligated to accept their thoughts of follow
their way. Don't allow other people, now or from the past,
unreasonably affect your decisions. Allow them their way, and you
live your way.
12. They don't get quality coaching. This is extremely
important! Coaching is simply getting mentored by someone who has
succeeded wildly in the area of your interest. Get coaching! Our
education system hardly equips us for real life, so don't assume
that because you went to college you are properly equipped.
Hardly. You need to keep learning. The most successful people
attend seminars, read books, join mastermind groups and clubs,
find mentors, network, and even hire expensive personal coaches
to make sure they succeed.
How many of these reasons can you identify with? Well, now that
you see the reasons, you now can look at yourself and make sure
that you don't follow ways that are known to not lead to wealth.
Follow what works and it will work. And don't forget to enjoy
yourself along the way.
