Yet, when you look at the amount of money-making strategies out there, available to anyone who's willing to get it, you have to wonder why more people aren't wealthy yet.
After spending almost 2 decades studying money, marketing, and wealth from some of the best minds on the planet, I keep seeing one secret being repeated by almost every top performer and super successful individual. (I'm talking about millionaires, and multi-Billionaires.)
What's absolutely crazy is that many of us here have already heard what this secret is. It's mindblowing to me that we're living in a time where all this powerful information is so easily available to us.
Of course, the danger in that is that a lot of the truly powerful knowledge gets dismissed because there's SO MUCH info out there, and also because we've heard some of it repeated often.
This secret remains to be a secret because so few of us actually use it, so few of us live it.
And, if we really start living it, our lives can be transformed. Wealth in every form can come to us easily.
The secret is... Gratitude.
Sure, we 'hear' it all the time. Some of us have heard it so often that it's annoying to hear it again.
Yet, how many of us can honestly say that most of our day is spent being in awe of just how amazing our lives are and how grateful we are for everything...including our loved ones, friends, the endless supply of knowledge freely available to us (like this forum,) all the opportunities surrounding - and beckoning us - at almost every moment?
Those of us who spend even half a day (heck, even an HOUR each day) being truly grateful are already wealthy. And I don't just mean mentally. More often than not, these are the people that also become money magnets.
If you can spend just 5 minutes, once or twice per day, to stop and focus completely on how much you already have and how grateful you really are for all of it...if you really get those feelings to well up each time you do this 'exercise,' I promise that in just a few months time, you'll start seeing some incredible things happening in your life, including the amount of wealth that gets drawn to you.
Hey, I know that it's easy to get caught up in - even overwhelmed by - the negative stuff around us.
Even in this incredible forum, it's sometimes very easy to focus on what's NOT going right - on the negative. Those of us who have been Moderators here know this all too well. ;-)
Sometimes, you just have to walk away from it, for a while.
Yet, at any given moment in time, if you can just stop and think about ONE good thing in your life, and really start to realize how lucky you are to have that, your entire day can change.
We all have that power.
In the USA, many of us celebrate Thanksgiving this week.
It shouldn't be celebrated for just one day or one week.
No matter where you live, if you can feel gratitude for all you have every single day, and really experience it, I GUARANTEE that by this time next year, you'll be amazed at how wealthy you've become.
Plus, you'll enjoy the side effect of just being a heck of a lot happier every day.
I can also guarantee something else...that those of us who read this and roll our eyes, or say "B.S." are either struggling with our finances, or are just barely getting by. Or maybe we're doing alright, but are nowhere near where we'd really like to be. Both emotionally and financially.
In the end, it's your choice what kind of life you want to live, and what you want to spend the rest of your life focusing on.
But, if almost every multi-Billionaire is telling us that gratitude is the big secret, maybe there's something to it, right?
By the way, I've seen this work in my own life, so I know it to be true. If you don't yet believe its power, try it for the next month or two. Heck, try it for a week and see what happens.
This forum is a great one to start with. Just look at how much powerful wisdom we have at our disposal.
I can't quite put to words how grateful I am that we have this forum, and all the amazing knowledge and opportunities that it provides us all.
I'm also extremely grateful for all the great friends I've made here.
Thank you all.
