In this post I am going to share with you the 4 ways to make money. Each of these ways requires a specific kind of mindset, and each one has its own qualities. Of course, by the end of this post, I will make it clear which ones of these 4 ways I prefer.
Method #1: The Employee
I can only speak from the perspective of someone who lives in the United States because this is where I currently live and where I have lived my entire life. Here, we are conditioned from birth to develop an employee mindset. Therefore, being an employee represents the first method to make money.
Our parents teach us from a very young age that we must go to school and eventually get a good job where we can retire with major benefits. Unfortunately, this dream ends up becoming a nightmare for most people. All you have to do is study the statistics. Most people retire broke.
Also, once you are introduced to the corporate world, you soon are awakened to a stiff reality: corporations only see you as a number who they can exploit to fulfill their bottom line. The moment they can get rid of you and replace you with someone they can pay less to, they are sure to do it.
Method #2: The Self-Employed
The second method of making money is being self-employed. When people get sick and tired of making someone else rich at their jobs, they make a decision to work for themselves. However, the self-employed individuals are soon hit with a cold reality: they aren’t any more free than when they were employees.
The difference now is that they work longer hours because their income depends on their efforts alone. Self-employed individuals are literally one sick episode away from going broke. I don’t know how you see it, but for me this isn’t true freedom.
Method #3: The Business Owner
The third method of making money is to become a business owner. Where the self-employed individuals fool themselves into believing they are business owners, the true business owners actually enjoy the freedom reserved for legitimate business owners.
You see, true business ownership means leveraging the efforts of others and not just your own. This is why I have always loved network marketing. Network marketing allows you to duplicate yourself through others, allowing you to generate residual and passive income streams.
When you are a business owner you have set-up a system and this system runs your business. When you are a real business owner you have discovered the amazing power of automation, duplication and massive leverage.
Method #4: The Investor
The fourth way to make money is as an investor. Now we are talking real freedom. When you reach this level it means that you have built a successful business that generates incredible, automated profits. You then have taken these profits and invested them into the global economy.
When you reach this stage you are no longer working for money, but instead, your money is working for you. This is when you get to truly enjoy your dream lifestyle. You can now travel the world and enjoy the beautiful freedom you always sought.
I am not going to hide the fact that I believe that where you need to be is at the business owner and investor level. I also don’t hide the fact that I believe that if you continue to be stuck in the employee and self-employed mindset, you will end up broke.
Therefore, I want to challenge you to end the programming this world has given you, eradicating the limited mindset which is keeping you down. You were not born to be mediocre. Challenge yourself to be greater than you ever thought possible.
