How to Start Building Wealth - Become Motivated

How do you get Rich ? Well, that depends on where you are starting from, but unless you have inherited millions of dollars or recently won the lottery, you will have to learn to save money.

A simple answer on paper, but far from a simple answer in real life. Saving money is the single biggest and the most simple tip you will ever learn about becoming rich. Then why is it that the simplest of things is never achieved by the majority of individuals. One reason is lack of motivation. They simply don't want to.

The fact that you are reading this means that you are somewhat motivated to getting rich. At least enough so to read these few words of wisdom. If you were hoping for a magic pill or magic wand to give you instant wealth. Sorry. The truth is you will have to learn how to save money.

Since you already want to learn how to get rich, then you have already crossed the first hurdle. You have the desire to improve yourself financially, otherwise you would have surfed elsewhere.

                                                                    What Next

Your next step is to transform this desire into a burning desire. Imagine yourself a wealthy person and feel the emotions of having everything that you desire. Feel it, don't just imagine it !  Feel It !

Motivation. Without it you will never be able to achieve your dreams. Without it you will never be able to continue saving when things get rough. With it you will achieve all that you desire. With it you will achieve wealth beyond your imagination.

Motivation is vital to your future success.

                                                          How to Become Motivated                 

First of all as the Nike commercial says, just do it. Just start saving 10% of your take home pay and follow "The Golden Rule" (previous post) . Start imagining now how it would feel to be rich. Simple.

The problem with motivation is that it has a tendency to die out over time. Your motivation may need to be revitalized from time to time. What worked for me was buying motivational books and reading, and rereading, and rereading them time and time again. The wonderful thing about motivational books is that the message never becomes outdated. What worked 30 years ago will still work today.

If you find yourself loosing focus from time to time, I would recommend buying yourself a motivational book or two. If you would like a specific recommendation, feel free to comment on this post or send me an email.

Motivation is something that must always be within you. You must feel what it is like to have achieved your goals and dreams. You must constantly build yourself up when the world is pushing you down. You must truly believe that you will reach your goals and realize your dreams.

It's that simple and it's that hard. The hard truth is you must keep motivated to achieve your goals. Without motivation there will be no savings. Without savings there will be no wealth.

As always, please feel free to leave a comment or make a suggestion for a future topic.
