If what makes for financial fortune is still a secret to you, it shows you have not made efforts to search it out.
There is nothing new under heaven. There is nothing you want to achieve today that someone somewhere has not achieved.
Your greatest task in the pursuit of financial freedom is to search out what the wealthy have done to accumulate their wealth, and then, do the same until yours becomes a reality.
The truth is that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel of financial fortune.
The principles of financial freedom are no longer secrets. The information age has democratized access to wealth and financial freedom forever.
It has opened up access to the needed information that makes wealth creation a possibility for everyone. It’s no longer the exclusive right of a certain privileged class of people. Anybody who will do what is needed can become wealthy.
Emulate The wealthy
Apostle Paul said, “That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.”
You are admonished to follow or walk in the steps of those who have achieved whatever it is you want to achieve. This is called the Principle Of Emulation.
This principle teaches that you will achieve your financial goals to the proportion to which you find out what the wealthy have done, and you then do the same things until you have achieved yours.
The most important principle of wealth-building is to learn from those who have accumulated wealth.
In his best-selling book Unlimited Power, Tony Robbins said “If you want to achieve success, all you need to do is find a way to model those who have already succeeded.”
Every man’s secrets are in their stories. And the good news is that their stories are all in the public domain. Read their biographies and autobiographies.
Indeed, success leaves clues. Study and learn how they started and built their wealth. This should also include the challenges they faced and how they overcame them.
If there is a particular wealthy person you like or admire for his success and achievement, if it is possible, you could ask such a person to share his experiences with you or mentor you.
This will give you opportunities to study the person at a closer range and also ask some specific questions in the course of the relationship.
Listen, friend, you don’t have to be a trailblazer to be financially free. You are permitted to be a copycat in your pursuit of financial freedom.
Just as kids learn to do things in the home by emulating their parents, you too can learn to be wealthy by emulating the wealthy.
Look for wealthy people you admire, study the strategies behind their
wealth, and then create a similar path for yourself. Emulating what they did or what they are doing is the shortcut to wealth and financial freedom.
Even those who made their wealth centuries ago and have long departed this world can still be of tremendous blessing to you in your quest for financial fortune.
All you will need to do is read and study about them and see how to emulate what they did to accumulate their wealth.
There is what MUST be done to accumulate wealth. Knowing what must be done and doing it is what makes for financial success.
Solomon, the wisest and richest king who ever lived, said, “The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city.”
If you don’t know how a thing is done, it can lead to weariness and frustration.
The antidote is to go learn from those who know….. people who have achieved what you want to achieve.
The good news is that the principles of wealth accumulation are the same from generation to generation.
It’s a new day for you!
To your financial freedom.
