Two weeks ago, I held the Millionaire Spirit workshop again after a break of several years. One of the main focuses of our work was of course on purpose, because nobody wants to sell their soul to become a millionaire. The goal is rather to arrive in the upper right quadrant of purpose: On-Purpose and rich.
The experience of this workshop prompted me once again to raise the question of why so many people struggle with themselves and achieve so little of what is actually possible for them. So I asked the community of almost 2,000 people on the Millionaire Spirit page on Facebook: Where does the belief that it is so difficult to become a millionaire actually come from?
The answer of many was: "So few people can do it, so logically it must be difficult!" However, my experience clearly shows that this thinking is exactly the opposite of the truth and therefore cannot be effective.
It is rather the other way around: because many people are convinced that it is so difficult to become a millionaire, only a few manage it.
I asked further on Facebook: Why are there relatively few people who consistently eat healthy and exercise regularly? Because it's impossible? - "Of course not!" was the answer. "Because they simply don't do anything regularly to be healthy and fit!"
Uh-huh. Do you see the connection? It can be just as easy to become a millionaire: By doing the simple things regularly and consistently every day.
It is important to keep asking yourself: Am I clear in my purpose and can I stay with myself despite the external circumstances? Can I exercise and buy healthy food, no matter what temptations the environment offers me?
One of the most important questions on the road to wealth is: can I always pay myself first, no matter what the environment wants me to do? When an airplane takes off, passengers are told that "in the event of a loss of pressure" they should first put the oxygen masks on themselves and only then help others. This is logical, because if you can't breathe, you can't help. And so I would like to tell you very clearly today: always pay yourself first!
Those who pay themselves first - in attention, in time, in money - live from the inside out. Loral Langemeier, Millionaire Maker in the USA, always says "Live out loud!" In German, we could say it's about expressing yourself from the inside out and leaving an impression, and not the other way around, allowing yourself to be impressed and then no longer being able to express yourself.
I wish you all focus on your own time! Pay yourself, live your purpose and make purpose-based profit!
