In part 5 of this series on achieving MAXIMUM WEALTH, I’m going to cover the importance of personal growth and how rich people see this important subject. If you missed part 4, you can read it here. If you take action on these important subjects, there is no doubt that you will obtain your goals in this time and in the time to come.
The Truth About Growth
It is sad, but it seems that most people decide to stop growing once they exit basic education. Successful people understand that learning and growing their mind is a life-long process. It is this commitment to long-term growth that places them on the path of wealth and achievement.
The Incremental Process
Those who attain what they want literally spend thousands in the acquisition of more knowledge. If you are not in the type of financial situation you want, you might be thinking that you can’t afford to spend so much on education. However, the key is to understand the importance of incremental growth. You must simply start with what you can. If you can only afford to get one book, then go ahead and get it. As you become more successful, you will then take a percentage of what you earn and use it to gain more knowledge, which will lead to more income. By applying incremental growth, you will be well on your way to where you want to go.
By getting in the habit of learning from the experts, you are able to compress time in a huge way. Stop to think about that last sentence. What took the person who wrote the book years of trial and error to learn, you can now learn in a week. If you stop and reflect on this concept you can’t help but be blown away. If you understand the importance of this, you will see that you have the ability to grow at warp speed.
Free Is Not Better
It is important to spend on your education. Sure, there is plenty of free information online, but this education, in a lot of cases, is unreliable because it comes from people who are not really experts. By buying that course you were hesitant to buy or paying for that seminar you were avoiding, you have the ability to achieve true quantum growth.
See It As An Investment
In order to get yourself to pay for the education you need, a tweak in mindset is needed. Instead of seeing it as an expense, you must learn to see it as an investment towards your future. The return of your investment will be massive because the more skilled and knowledgeable you become, the more valuable you will become to the marketplace, greatly increasing your income potential.
Get A Coach
Besides reading books or taking courses, I also encourage you to find a personal coach who can guide you through the pitfalls of your great journey towards reaching your goals. It’s always good to have a mentor. Your mentor will keep you accountable, ensuring that you will honor your word of taking the necessary actions.
Learn, Commit, Apply
It is vital that you learn to apply this powerful three-step process: learn, commit, apply. The first step is to learn something new. Then, you commit to apply it. Finally, you actually apply it. If you continuously recycle this three-step process you will grow one hundred times faster than the ordinary person who inhabits this Earth.
You Can’t Earn More Than What You’re Worth
People like to complain about how much they are making at their jobs. They cry about not getting a raise in many years. What they don’t realize is that they are getting paid exactly what they are worth. If they decided to increase their knowledge and skills, they would automatically be worth more. So, if you are not making what you like, examine where you are in terms of knowledge, and grow where you need to grow.
You Must Be Bigger
At the end of the day, the key is to become bigger than your problems. Your problems only seem big because your mindset is too small. Once you start focusing on personal development you will see that the problems you once thought were big, now seem small because you have become someone greater.
The Continuous Process
One of my interests in life in lifting weights. As a weightlifter, I know that if I stop lifting weights, my body will start to get weak again. If I want to maintain my physical strength, I must continue to lift weights for the rest of my life. success is the same way. If you want to continue to reach new levels, you can never stop growing. The moment you stop growing, you kill your momentum and slowly start to deteriorate, morphing back to your previous, limited condition.
The Importance Of Specialized Knowledge
The final point I want to make is that you must focus on acquiring specialized knowledge. For example, it would be silly for someone who wants to become a Doctor to study law books. Sure, The law books will have valuable information, but it will not have the specialized knowledge the aspiring Doctor seeks. So, find out what you want to do, and then go find the specialized information that will allow you to become a master in that subject. Soon enough, nothing will be able to stop you from getting the results you want.
