Motivate Me to Get Rich

Being rich is more than having lots of money. Being rich and living a rich lifestyle is a mindset. Money gives you choices, the more money you have the more choices you will face. Having money for itself is no good, it'w aht you what you want the money for that's they key. Once you have that figured out, you will know what you need to do to get the money you need. If you don't need much, you won't do very much. If you're going to have a goal - why not make it a big one, then go to work to make it happen.

From cats eyes to aglets...why solving problems is the key to riches

There's got to be a better way of doing that. Everything you see around you was created by someone who wanted to solve a particular issue. It may have been to make life easier, or to make something work better. What you can guarantee happened, each solved problem made someone (lots of someone's) very rich.

Have you ever lost an aglet?

Annoying isn't it trying to thread the fraying ends of your shoelaces without that little plastic bit on the end. Then think about the "cats eyes" in the middle of the road, they have helped save thousands of lives. 

The person who thought of, and then found a way to create, market and sell those particular things solved a major problem and probably created a small fortune in the process.

Everything you see around you today was created to solve a particular problem someone had.

So how do you make lots of money?

Find someone with a problem and figure out how to solve it.

Why do you think coaches and mentors (the good ones that is) can charge what they do and have scores of people lining up to pay the money? It's because they hone in on their clients problems and then provide solutions on how to overcome that particular issue. But it's not an abstract exercise, these coaches expect you to do your homework. they want you to solve your problem because they want you to succeed.

Look around you.

Look at what you do and how you do it - then figure out a way to make it better.

Or someone else will.

If you are having problems, you can almost guarantee someone else is having the same kinds of issues that you are.

So you've had your million dollar idea, what do you do with it?

You can of course live with your big idea and your problem and do nothing. Then when someone else creates "it" you can roll your eyes and tell anyone who is still listening. Hey I thought of that. Or

You break your problem down into a project.

Once you've done that, the problem is no longer an insurmountable obstacle that stops you dead in your tracks. Projects are easy, they can have a million different tasks associated with it, but completion of each tiny piece moves you one step closer to launching your solution.

Solve lots of problems, or one problem that lots of people are facing and you will be well on your way to financial success.
