Here is the key to your wealth
I recently met a person who came to me wanting relief from extreme mental stress. As I listened to him he said; I somehow want to become successful. So, I asked him; What is your definition of success? He looked at me blank and replied; I don’t know. I asked him; Do you want to know about the key to your wealth?
Most people are chasing something they have no idea about. Yet, they just want to be successful. You need to have a mindset to achieve success.
Here is a story I read a few times. But, this story has a very deep meaning.
The Three Men
A home maker one day heard a knock on the door. When she opened the door, there were three men standing at the door. They introduced themselves. The first one introduced himself as wealth. The second one introduced himself as success and the third introduced himself as happiness.
The home maker was perplexed. She thought for a while and answered; My husband will be back home in the evening. Until then, I cannot let you in. So, the three men decided to wait.
The husband returned home and saw the three men sitting on a ledge opposite his house. He knocked on the door. His wife opened the door. When her husband had settled, she narrated the incident about the three men.
The husband and wife discussed among themselves about which one of them to invite. The husband said; Let’s invite success. He will bring in success in my work. The wife said; No..no.! Let’s invite wealth. We can have a better house and luxuries.
After a detailed discussion, they decided to invite happiness and the wife opened the door. The three men were waiting patiently. The wife asked; Which one of you is happiness?
Happiness got up and walked into the house. Behind him, Success and Wealth also walked in and they announced; Wherever happiness goes, we follow.
Here is the key to your wealth
Success begins with a mindset for passion to achieve something big. This is called a vision. People who are passionate are happy and rearing to go. Unless you have a passion, you really don’t have an idea about what you are chasing. You are like a blind man running helter-skelter.
Once you have a vision, you have to create your goals. These constitute your roadmap and the milestones to achieve your vision.
Make sure your family also is a part of your vision. You cannot march alone. You need your family and they need you. Make your journey inclusive. Invest in yourself and your family. When you grow, they grow. Your family will support you emotionally, morally and nourish your body, mind and heart in several ways.
You mustn’t hurry on achieving your vision. People look at those who have made it and want to be there without wanting to be a part of the journey. The journey is the most important part of achieving your vision.
Here is the key to your wealth – If you want to be wealthy and successful, you must chug along like a train. Perseverance, dedication, determination and trust will see you through.
if you have already begun your journey but don’t have a vision, its time you create one.
Visionaries alone have the key to wealth.
