    set yourself a goal and work towards it every day , step by step and you can achieve anything you want as long as you keep working and don’t give up if something does not work out straight away

    I know my problem is poor choices. Surprisingly one of the richest people I ever knew was a mentally challenged girl who did laundry at a Ramada Inn. She spent almost nothing and the hotel manager invested everything she made. Over the years she accumulated a considerable sum of money. I made far more each week than she did, but her money was immediately turned into money that was working for her and mine went into cars, having a good time, and buying material things that depreciated rather than  becoming more valuable. She was not poor but she lived as if she was.   

    I think I was happier with my lifestyle but I never got rich. So it is easy to be rich on paper if you are willing to sacrifice comforts. It really depends on what you want in life.

      What a great story about the mentally challenged girl who did laundry at a Ramada Inn.
      Most of use know about the poor state of the economy.  I never felt hard times like I did the past year.  Let me tell you, I did a complete 360 and made myself life a simpler live without the frills for about a year now.  I can see myself getting back on track and feel real good about it too.  I also come to realize I enjoy many more activities outside of my materialistic world.  Very good Forum reply you have.  Nice to meet you.

    It's just about your mindset... setting to poor, gonna be poor, setting to get rich, Well you are rich. Thinking the positive the positive result for you.

    T.Harv Eker wrote a book about the differences in how rich people think versus how poor people think. I wrote a review of that book and outlined all of his principles and went over each one in my own words.  The hub also includes video from one of his presentations on the same subject.  Check it out if you're interested.  You should find it by putting in "Secrets of the Millionaire Mind".

    What many people do not know or don't have access is the knowledge required to obtain 'money'. The proper and simple solution for money problem is self-responsibility.

    If you are self-responsible about making money, then you will due diligence the thought of making money. Research the best way to make money. Look for some sort of goods/products or services to offer to the community. Make sure it is beneficial.

    You have to provide value for whatever it is that you decide to go with. If your customer feels like they get value for their dollar, then you'll have a customer base to work with. As long as you have return customers, you create a residual income.

    Take care of your customers - they are your life-line income.

    Do more research about it, investigate it and apply what you learn. You have to WANT to do this. You have to learn whatever you can about owning or operating a business. Start small- check into what requirements are necessary to be a small business owner. Decide if you want it at home or a location. This might change on licenses for each.

    I'll leave the rest to you.

    As I understand there is no way to become rich in one night. But if you decide one amount as your goal, then it is possible that your mind will work on it and will show you way to earn that amount. So set goal, and listen your heart. You will become rich withing you pre-defined period. But whatever you will decide, you should have believe that I will get this amount without any doubt, then it will be materialized. If anybody want to donate for me then they can contact me.

    somebody told me " where you are in life (whether good or bad) is the results of your thoughts . Alot of people want to be rich, but dont understand that in order to become rich,you  must first start with the mind . Napolean hill states that " whatever the man concieves and believes he can achieve

    in order to change you results, you must change your thoughts

    it'll take time (hard work, patience,persistence etc) but you can do it

    hope this helps … an-Achieve

    just that statement alone, we have no money.
    Do you have 50 cents.... thats money. Look at what you have. Look at choices youve made.

    I noted the other night whilst walking past expensive houses on the beach front how I could have lived in one of them when I was a student, but I chose, partly due to my political beliefs, not to take the offer up.

    Where I live now, is partly due to choice and partly due to externalities. The question is where will I live next. Here is ok, we have vegies and a few plants, but I want a bigger living space.. how do I create that in my life?

    Look at the words you are thinking... and see if you can change them. See where you are rich and riches will follow..

    Maybe you are rich in culture, time rich, love rich or lifestyle rich. I know people who work from 7am to 10pm, travel the world and make alot of money. They look busy, stressed at times and are not living life. There are many ways to be rich.
