I now bring you the first lesson I learned from “The Richest Man in Babylon” book.
I guess most of us already know this lesson, but it would still be a good fundamental practice to reinforce.
Most of us wonder why we just aren’t earning more money, we work hard everyday but still earn the same. Then we see other people who seem to be relaxed, taking it easy, taking vacations and not working hard, but seem to have more money despite what they do.
Did it ever come to your mind that one of the reasons you aren’t earning more money is that you didn’t seek to earn more money? Simple right? You are not earning more money because you are contented with what you are earning now. Something inside you was triggered when you saw your neighbor have a better car, a better house, taking more vacations and not having to work overtime.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that working hard is bad, it’s just that you become good at where you devote most of your time, that is where you succeed. You become good at your job because you devote most of your time to your job, you are successful with your job.
But if you devote most of your time to earning more money, you will get good at it and later on be successful at earning more money.
So how exactly do you devote time to earning more money? The first step is to ask people who are already doing what you want to do or already have what you want to acquire how they did it.
Learning from people who are already earning more and earning passive income will help you avoid the mistakes they made in their journey to where they are now.
So dedicate your time to learning, learn from others, this is the first step to becoming truly rich and is the first lesson I have learned from “The Richest Man in Babylon”. Invest in yourself and learn how to grow your money.
Stay tuned for the next lesson in the next few days. This is just the beginning of better things to come.
To your truly rich adventure.
