How To Get Rich - Be True To Yourself

Do you ever feel coaxed to do something that's not right for you ?

Do you feel everyone should be exactly the same in every way ?

Our unique differences is actually what makes life so interesting and challenging !

Power of Persuasion

I am sure that we have all felt at some point the powerful force of someone with a strong position on a topic. When this topic comes to money and finances, these individuals can actually do you more harm than good.

No one likes to feel they are being told what to do. When it comes to relationships, the person with the strongest personality and opinions can often persuade the other to think their way. The person with the weaker personality will often change simply to keep the peace.

As a financial planner, I have seen this situation far too often. Individually people will generally do whatever they feel is right for them. When left to discuss ideas with a partner, more times than not they will completely change their direction.

Be True To Yourself

When it comes to money and your financial future, you must stand up for what you feel is really the best for you. Do you really think you need that new car or to renovate your comfortable home for the third time ? Not likely.

Life can become very complicated and confusing and even more so when you have someone else to consider. If you feel you are always yielding to someone else's wishes, how can you possibly be happy and fulfilled in your life ? The simple answer is you can't. Freedom of choice is what creates true inner wealth.

As I have mentioned in other posts, wealth is not simply numbers in a bank account. Wealth is much more about living your life the way you want to live it. Be true to your inner self and do what you truly want to do.

What To Do   

If you find yourself in a relationship where you are always giving in to the other, you must seek the proper help. A healthy relationship is one that shares each others ideas and works towards the common good of the couple or family.

When it comes to finances, saving money and investing money is the only proven way to build financial wealth. Do not put yourself in a position where you are waiting for a big score to get ahead. In reality, this big score will always be sometime in the future and your precious time will be slipping away.

If you are contemplating a savings or investment plan, STOP ! Stop contemplating it and just do it and do it now ! Time is something you will never get back.

To become truly wealthy, you must first become true to yourself. Never let someone else tell you what to do. Your inner self will always tell you what choice is right for you.

As always, I welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
