Wealth Creation: Wealth and Wealth Creation ability
No one can tell whether he is rich or poor by turning to his ledger. It is the heart that makes a man rich. He is rich according to what he is, not according to what he has
Henry Ward Beecher
People have different stake or perspectives on the word wealth and wealth creation. What does the word wealth mean to you? Wealth is a state of being so also is lack. God said somewhere in His word that has has given us the ability to create wealth. Lasting wealth is a state of being and ability. an ability is a skill. It has to be learned.
From the idea of Henry Beecher it is the man of the hear or the spirit man that makes you rich. You are rich according to the Spirit that is a work within you. For me this is the turning point.
Here I am going to describe three principles to becoming wealthy and the manifestation of these principles in different areas of our lives is key to living in abundance.
Your being- who've become
In his book the Secrets of Super achievers Philip Baker said this:
"The willingness to think, believe and act differently is the key to visible transformation. Supper achievers continuously work in their character, emotional and spiritual life. They realise that success is inside out, and that the heart ir the inner core of the person is where the harder work must be done, thus to grow on the outside, you mst grow in the inside."
Wealth is a character so also is abundance. Or should I say Value. if you want to create wealth as a value you have to think wealth wise. As a man thinketh in his heart so he is.
Again, Steve Forbes sums it up this way:
" The real source of wealth and capital in this new era is not material things - it is the human mind, the human spirit, the human imagination and our faith in the future. That's the magic of free society - everyone an move forward and prosper because wealth comes from within."
These are graet insights and words of wisdom. Howbeit, that most of us look for it outside of ourselves.
What you do
Who you become is expressed more in what you do. How can you contribute or add value to others so as to create wealth.The key to wealth is based on what can do from who you've become. For you to get you have to give. This is the principle of contribution. Wealth creators are value creators.This is their nature. This is what they do as a result of who they've become.
The result you get from what you you do
They've learn to contribute and possibly distribute their ideas to intelligent actions. The result they get is that people buy into their creation. the more people but in the more their wealth. It can simply be the way you've leveraged your skills, knowledge, and abilities so as to make them available to more people. What form of representational system can you turn them to: what people can see, hear, or do.?
I'll end this with this quote:
"Great men are little men expanded. Great lives are ordinary lives intensified."
.Wilfred A Peterson
What action will you take today to create the wealth you need tomorrow?
