Some people spend their time crying foul about how money has eluded them. They mourn and cry over their ‘lack of money’ and keep saying that money goes to those who have it. In fact it is in one sense true.
Money usually attracts more money. That statement at face value appears socially evil – but the truth is that those who make money to work for them usually end up with much more. Those who stock it up in a bank and fear to do anything with it usually lose it to inflation and the like.
Opportunities are everywhere. But every opportunity must be harnessed. An opportunity will not present itself and turn itself into a financial advantage.
It is you who spots the opportunity and turns into the gold mine that makes it worth the opportunity.
Those who have money probably got the money because they spotted an opportunity and made good use of it. So money is not their birth right. It is a result of their effort; hence they will try to use that money to make more.
If you spend your time moaning about your lack of money and how others have unfairly large amounts of money, then you have completely missed the point.
Do not think that rich people do not worry because they have money; they worry about what their money is doing for them while you are worrying about how you do not have money.
So, an opportunity is your door to making money. The opportunity comes before the money. Again do not assume that an opportunity is money. It is the door to money. In between, there is hard and smart work.
So next time you see, a rich man, try to think about how he made his money. Don’t feel sorry for yourself or feel envious towards him. These are wasted emotions. Translate any negative emotion into your personal desires to achieve your own success and financial wealth.
Be a self made man or woman who hopes to use you position of affluence to benefit those around you, not a whiner who does not benefit themselves and society in any way.
