Five Ways to Become Rich by Brian Tracy

uu6ny CE briantracy Five Ways to Become Rich by Brian TracyIf you are really serious about becoming wealthy, there are five primary ways that fortunes are made.

Become an Entrepreneur
The number one road to riches, at the head of the list and on the top of the hit parade throughout U.S. history, is entrepreneurship, starting and building a successful business. Entrepreneurship includes every kind of business, from farming and trucking to real estate and computers. Seventy-four percent of self made millionaires in the United States, going back 200 years, come from self-owned businesses. An individual starts with an idea for a product or service, turns it into a business, builds it up from the ground floor, and as a result becomes wealthy.

Work Your Way Up

Another way to become rich is as a highly paid executive of a successful company, or as an employee of a company that awards stock options that become valuable. Ten percent of self-made millionaires in the United States are men or women who have joined large corporations, or companies that became large, and worked for these companies for many years. They usually work hard; were promoted and paid well; earned stock options, bonuses, and profit sharing; and as a result of holding on to that money, become millionaires and multimillionaires.

Become a Professional

A major source of self-made millionaires consists of professional people, doctors, dentists, lawyers, architects, engineers, and others with advanced degrees who can charge high fees for their services. These people earn their degrees and dedicate themselves to becoming very good at what they do, rise to the top of their professions, earn high incomes, and then hold on to the money. Ten percent of self-made millionaires in the United States fall into this category.

Get into Sales

An important source of self-made millionaires is salespeople and sales consultants. Five percent of self-made millionaires in the United States are men and women who are experts and at the top of their fields in selling. They never started their own businesses. Few of them went to college or earned professional degrees. Instead, they became very good at selling a product of service, and were paid well for doing it. In addition, they managed their money well, invested it intelligently, and made it grow until they were millionaires or better.

All the Others

The final 1 percent of self-made millionaires includes all the people who have made their money in the stock market, with inventions, in show business, through the authorship of books and songs, as lottery winners, and all other sources. Unfortunately, because this group gets so much publicity, many think they are typical of the people who get rich. The fact is they are quite rare.

Action Exercise

Project forward 10 to 20 years and begin imagining you perfect life. What would it look like? What steps could you take immediately to begin making it a reality?

Success Stories
Katana Abbott
PamCampbell"Two very significant things have shifted for me since I began working with Katana..

My relationship with money and my relationship with my Mother. In our first session, we identified my "Security" money personality.  Katana skillfully led me to the early childhood experience with my Mother which was the root cause of my belief in scarcity, that what I have could be taken from me at any moment.  I felt where this experience resided in my body, and I released it.

Katana provided tools for working through this experience in the following days, and we created powerful new affirmations to pave the way for a new much more positive experience with money. 

I didn't lose any sleep over the fiscal cliff scare.  I have a newfound sense of security, regardless of external circumstances.  I have begun to spend money differently, choosing things that really feed my soul.

 

I am SO glad that I signed up for Katana's coaching program...and this is only the beginning!"
