To become rich is not easy and convenient. Getting rich can be very hard work. If you are willing to do only what is easy, life will be hard. But if you are willing to do what is hard, life will be easy. The rich are always willing to take difficult decisions and act on them whereas the poor take the easy and convenient way out. Start getting out of your comfort zone and explore new thoughts and ideas.
To become rich is to step out into the unknown and conquer fear. Exploring new thoughts and ideas and incorporating them into our lives means getting out of that comfort zone we are accustomed to.
Each time you step out of your comfort zone, you conquer uncertainty and fear. This expands the size of your comfort zone. The size of your ‘comfort zone’ equals the size of your ‘wealth zone’. By expanding your comfort zone, you will expand the size of your income and wealth.
The more comfortable you are in your little cocoon, fewer risks you will be willing to take and fewer opportunities will come your way. The more contracted you become with fear, fewer people you will meet, and fewer new strategies will you try.
If you are willing to stretch and expand your financial, emotional and spiritual intelligence, the size of your comfort zone will increase and you will attract and hold more income and wealth. The minute you become comfortable, you stop growing.
A moment of fear freezes you for eternity. Being comfortable and fearful has killed more ideas, opportunities, more action and more growth than everything else combined.
The human mind is the greatest soap-opera script writer in history. It plays and replays the greatest dramas—full of tragedies and disasters that never happened and probably never will. Mark Twain said it best: “I’ve had thousands of problems in my life, most of which never happened.”
Training and managing our minds out of fear and worries is the most important skill that we will ever develop. We have the power to run our thoughts. We will turn into a failure if we allow our uncontrolled thoughts to dictate our actions.
We have the ability to cancel any thought that does not support our growth process. We have to choose and install self-empowering thoughts. We have the power to control our minds and choose the actions that make us mentally, emotionally, financially and spiritually strong.
Robert Allen said something very profound: “No thought lives in our head rent- free.” This means if we have fear and negativity in our minds, we will have to pay in terms of money, in energy, in time, in health and in happiness. If we have to move forward then we have to control and expand our mental state. We have to overcome our hesitancy and fears and re-write the script that governs our life.
You can be a millionaire in the next 24 months or sooner, if you can get out of your comfort zone and overcome the fear that holds you back.
