10 Steps To Riches

Wherever you may be in your life, you may become rich by determining that it will be so. Develop that burning intense desire that stokes the fire in your mind. The odds are against you winning big in the lottery, so you best come up with a long term plan.

Yes, it would be outstanding to win the lottery, but most people squander that in a few years anyways because they don’t have an abundance mindset, so…

1-Develop A Money Consciousness

This is the first essential step to riches because it helps attract wealth. You’ve got to focus your mind on the abundant supply of the universe. Never focus on lack or poverty. Think, act, and feel wealthy using the law of assumption because as you think, so you become. And read  Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind {<Free Copy} by T.Harv Eker.

2-Study Wealth

Success leaves clues, and like Earl Shoaf taught Jim Rohn,”If you want to be wealthy, study wealth.” There are many excellent self-help books that go into the attitudes of mind and proven methods that are necessary to achieve lasting riches:

3-Save At Least 10% Of Your Earnings

This discipline helps your mind to respect and appreciate the value of money. And the more you save and accumulate, the wealthier you will feel. And the wealthier you feel, the more wealth you’ll attract due to the law of attraction.

4-“A Penny Saved Is A Penny Earned”

What I mean specifically is to do more things by yourself, for yourself. For instance, I have developed lots of skills. I work on my own cars, my own house, and as you can probably tell – my own website. Not only do I save money, but I feel great about it. And as Brian Tracy says, “Everything is learnable.”

5-Invest What You Save

Do it wisely because it’s important never to take a loss. If your investment goes down for a while like most do because everything is cyclical, do not sell. Study investments, and do it yourself. Most fund managers lose their clients money and get paid by commission per transaction. Don’t try to become a trader unless you decide to do it for a living because it is a full time specialty that very few can master.

6-Think Long Term

Buy a stock index fund when the market crashes, which it always does because of cycles. Then hold them long term. Invest what you can keep in and roll over in compound interest until you retire. Get at least 10 % percent in physical gold and silver and a safe. In both cases don’t check the markets for weeks at a time because the Fed and the big banks manipulate and suppress them, but cycles eventually win out. Read The Intelligent Investor {<Free Copy} by Benjamin Graham.

7-Study Cycles

Due diligence will tell you what’s going on – the global economy is going down. Just look beyond the mainstream media which is in the elites and the banks pockets.

8-Study Your Craft

Wherever you are in life, whatever you’re doing for a living-read, learn, improve, and master what you’re passionate about. But don’t go into debt by going back to school. A study of most wealthy entrepreneurs will show you that most of them were self-educated. School is really just books, so turn your car into a university on wheels. Like Jim Rohn said, “Formal education will make you a living, self-education can make you a fortune.”


It’s suggested to give away ten percent of your earnings, but I believe that it depends upon you. Give away what is in your heart to give. It may be time, effort, skill, or money. You can help an older person with home repairs, or even take them to a movie. Maybe, start feeding the homeless cats in your area. Whatever makes you feel good. It causes your subconscious to feel abundance which will attract more of the same. Let abundance flow through you instead of hording it.

10- Be Grateful For All That You Have

The law of gratitude sets in motion other universal laws of mind that will help attract even more things for you to be grateful for into your life. Also start dressing and grooming yourself better. Clean up your car and home. And take 10% of your earnings, and spend it on you because you deserve it.

7 Strategies For Wealth & Happiness

Lessons From The Master

7 Strategies For Wealth & Happiness  {<Free Audiobook} is the culmination of principles that Jim Rohn learned from his mentor, the self-made millionaire and motivational speaker Earl Shoaff. Shoaff shared his wisdom with Rohn who then became a self-made millionaire and motivational speaker himself.

There are about a half-dozen things that make 80% of the difference. In any undertaking, ask yourself what are the half-dozen things that will make the biggest difference in the results.

One essential to all wealth & happiness is discipline. When you welcome the disciplines you take hold of the master key that unlocks abundance and opportunity because action completes the miracle process .

Strategy #1- Unleash The Power Of Goals

Only 3% of the population ever put their goals in writing. And those same 3% have more wealth than the other 97% combined. You can read my Top 10 Goal Setting Tips. Putting your goals in writing activates the power of your subconscious mind which is in tune with the Infinite Intelligence of the universe. Then what you focus on and think about acts like a magnet that sets in motion the law of attraction.

Strategy #2- Seek Knowledge

When you understand that income and happiness rarely exceed personal development, you will seek out knowledge which is the pathway to wisdom. By learning to work harder on yourself than on your job, you tap into the miracle of personal development. Turn your car into a university on wheels. And remember, “You are what you read.”

Strategy #3- Learn How To Change

The type of person that you become is much more important than what you get. A self-made millionaire is truly wealthy in ways beyond the monetary. To have more than you’ve got, become more than you are. If you want your life to get better, you must get better. And all change starts from within.

Strategy #4- Control Your Finances

It was Rohn’s quote from his mentor Shoaff that first prompted me to open my mind to wealth. “If you want to be wealthy, study wealth.” Indeed the first step to wealth is to develop a money consciousness.

Here’s 3 great FREE books to help you do just that:

Think And Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill,

The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles,

Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker.

Strategy #5- Master Time

Become the master of your life. Control your thoughts and control your life. Know yourself well and take advantage of the peaks and ebbs in your energy cycles. Concentrate your time and effort on the things that will make the biggest difference in your day and in your life until they are completed. And always finish what you started.

Strategy #6- Surround Yourself With Winners

You can watch this great Jim Rohn video. Walk Away From The 97%.. Remember that you are greatly influenced by, and therefore tend to become like those people that you hang around with. Peer pressure has helped ruin many unsuspecting youths and adults.

Strategy #7- Learn The Art Of Living Well

The good life is not an amount. It’s an attitude. The good life comes from a fully developed lifestyle. Most of all, a good life starts from within. Do yourself a favor and listen to this FREE audiobook Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude by Napoleon Hill & W. Clement Stone – it’s really inspiring and motivating, and one of my favorites.

Jim closes the book with chapter 11 which is also a great short video which you can watch here > “The Day That Turns Your Life Around“. Just a moment in time where you’ve had enough and can’t take it anymore.

Fortunately, when I hit bottom I was able to tap into a wealth of knowledge from a great self-help book that I had read many years before called Awaken The Giant Within {<Free Copy} by Tony Robbins.

We all have been blessed with many innate gifts and talents, but it’s up to us to develop and use them. Like Jim Rohn said, “If we want to get the things on the higher shelf, we’ve got to stand on the books that we read.”
