How To Get Rich - Do Not Become Discouraged

Do you get down when you see others have more than you ?

Do you feel that it's just too hard to get what you want out of life ?

Reality is, we all have these thoughts of discouragement !

Position Yourself

The first thing you must do when feeling down is to position yourself. What this means is to realize where in life you are today. Realize your accomplishments and give yourself a big pat on the back so to speak. There is no one else that will do this for you as everyone tends to concentrate on their own lives.

You must then visualize the future that you want for yourself. Your future is unique and no two individuals will have the same dreams of their future. You must focus on this desired future and work towards achieving it at all costs. This is your life and it is the only one you will ever have.

Filter Out Extremes

In this day and age everyone seems to be absorbed with the rich and famous or the extremely wealthy. The media seems to thrive on reporting on the accomplishments of the extremely successful individuals. Many become so absorbed that they wish they were someone else that had much more.

It is a shame that our society has become one so absorbed with wealth and popularity. These rich and famous individuals are no better a person than you are.

We must learn to filter out the extremes in our society. Learn not to focus on what the media is saying but instead focus on yourself as an individual. Work towards doing whatever you can do to become the person you want to be tomorrow.

What To Do

When you get down, remember who you are. Remember your past accomplishments and visualize the future you want for yourself. Learn to filter out all of the media garbage and realize that the media is merely a business trying to sell it's image in order to make money.

Sure, there are many individuals that have more than you do. In reality, there always will be. But just say, so what. Learn to be happy with what you have done and what you plan for your future. After all, your life is the one that is the most important to you, as it should be.

Wealth is merely a state of mind. If you are happy with where you are and where you are heading, then you are truly the wealthiest person in your world.

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