10 Things You Must Sacrifice If You Want To Get Rich
Ten things you must sacrifice if you want to be rich fast. Ten things I sacrificed because I wanted to be rich. When I was age 20, I decided to be a millionaire, even though I was born by poor parents. Making the decision isn’t enough. I was very much aware that I would have to sacrifice a couple of things if I truly want to be rich. In this article we will be sharing with you ten things I sacrificed and which you must sacrifice if you want to be rich.
1. Sacrifice the Shining objects
For more than a decade after I had made the decision to be rich I didn’t buy any shiny objects. I didn’t buy latest phones, TV, clothes or shoes. I bought nothing unless it was very important for my existence or business. My idea about money is make it, invest most of it and manage anything that remains. I had these days when my wife and I will be broke, even though we were making more money than most people. We were broke because we invest almost everything we earn. I won’t tell you that it’s easy, but it’s a sacrifice that’s worth it.
Would you rather be a lion one day and be respected all your life or will you be a sheep with no honor all the rest of your life. Would you rather sacrifice those new phones, clothes, wristwatches and TV sets now and be an average man for the rest of your life? Robert Kiyosaki said rich people buy luxuries last while poor people by luxury first. If you want to be rich, you must be disciplined enough to sacrifice the signing objects. Invest a significant percentage of your income and manage whatever remains.
2. Sacrifice the friendship with poor people
I decided long ago never to be friends with poor people and what I mean by poor people here isn’t those people who have no money. The truly poor people are those who are not ambitious, if you hang out with people who are not ambitious you won’t be ambitious because when you hang out with people who make excuses, you end up making excuses. If you hang out with people who expect the economy to be better before they’ll be rich, you do the same. Let go of negative people. Surround yourself with positive and ambitious people and you’ll be rich because they would Challenge and encourage you to dream big in dear life.
3. Sacrifice the social media and TV
I never bought the TV set in my entire life. I had only one social media account and got it deleted last year November. Today I use social media strictly for business. And yes, here is the reason social media like the TV is too interesting. If you want to be rich you’ll be careful about things that are interesting because if anything is too interesting and it doesn’t give you money it’s taking away money from you. The reason why you can spend seven hours in front of the TV set is because it’s interesting.
The reason why you can check your Instagram and Facebook profiles 10 times a day is because it’s interesting. The problem with this is that the real thing is bitter. If you want to be rich, you have to spend your time doing difficult things, not enjoying sweet things. Action is difficult and bitter but that’s what you have to do. Do I mean you should delete all your social media profiles? No, do I mean you should reduce the time you spend on social media and TV? Yes, if you want to be rich.
4. Sacrifice some sleep
I’m not talking about the bullshit of waking up early here. Nobody needs to wake up 5:00 a.m. Or 5:30 a.m. As a rule. The rule of the thumb is simple. You need to sleep later than most people and wake up earlier than most people. I’m not advocating that you should sleep only three hours. But I don’t think you need to sleep nine hours either, you have to sacrifice some sleep.
5. Sacrifice the blame game
I grew up in a society where most people blame the government, the economy or the parent for their poverty. However, when I was around 17, I decided to stop that nonsense. Blaming other people for your situation makes you happy. Because you have the feeling that after all it’s not your fault. The problem with this mindset is that since you think it’s not your fault you also think someone else should help you out. Maybe the government, your parent or the economy. I’m sorry. Nobody is going to help you to become rich. If you want to be rich you sacrifice the pleasure you are getting from blaming other people. You take 100% responsibility for your life. Get out and get your hands dirty.
6. Sacrifice your fear of loosing
The day I was going fully into the business world was very remarkable. I was afraid. Yet I knew I just had to do something with my life. At some point I wasn’t so sure I could succeed. But I told myself, I rather die now than to live the rest of my life as a poor person. If you want to be rich, you’ll be crazy enough to let go of your fear of failure. The truth is whether you step out or not, you fail. Because failure is part of life. Why not go through life with your fear when you can’t face your fear.
7. Sacrifice your impatience
Warren Buffett said, you cannot have a baby next month by impregnating nine women today. That’s very true. Good things always take time. Most of the overnight success you see actually happened over thousands of nights. You can be rich but it won’t happen next month. It may not happen next year. Stop being impatient. Don’t look for “get rich quick”. Stop looking for shortcuts, because it usually leads to a longer journey.
8. Give up your low self-esteem
The evidence that you can achieve something is the fact that many people who are born in similar situations like you have achieved such a thing. Low self-esteem is when you think you are not a people of becoming rich. This is when you think someone is capable of stopping you. Low self-esteem is when you pity you, low self-esteem is when you think you can’t be rich when the economy is bad. Sacrifice that, give up the new you who is powerful enough to change the world.
9. Give up your hatred for books
I started reading financial books when I was around 17. I never stopped since then, listen. School won’t teach you how to be rich. Unfortunately because financial education isn’t part of our school curriculum, the only teachers you can depend on for your Financial Freedom are those who have made good money. You need a miracle to be rich if you don’t read financial books written by people who have become rich. I’m sorry give up your hatred for books. Reading Financial books can change your financial life.
10. Give up the easy life
In all the dream of easy life is a myth. Life isn’t easy, and it’s not going to be. I’m sorry, give up the hope for Easy Life. Give up the expectation that you should be rich easily. Be willing to pay the price or you won’t get rich.
