It’s easy to spot a yellow car when you are looking out for a yellow car. Same way how it is easy to spot opportunities when you are out looking for it. The problem is that for most of us, we are looking for all the wrong things.
Most people don’t realise how capable our brains actually are and we fail to use it to it’s maximum capability. As the old saying goes, give your mind a million dollar problem and it’ll come up with a million dollar solution. But most of us arent thinking about million dollar problems because we are too busy focusing on ten dollar problems. We spend our time and brain’s potential thinking about how to save a few bucks a month, when what we really should do is think about how we can earn an extra $1,000 or $10,000 a month. Think big and challenge yourself, revolve your mindset around how to win rather than how to NOT lose.
But when we share the theory that we should all think bigger, the natural response is that “I can’t do that”. We think that it’s beyond our capabilities to think bigger, hence we focus on saving what we already have. To these people, we quote the famous line from Coach Carter
““Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”
and we implore you to believe in yourself. Even if you don’t have a solution immediately, your sub conscious, your inner entrepreneur will automatically start picking up things you come across in your daily lives and filter potential ideas out, if you only start looking. It may not be immediate, but if you focus on earning more, you will get more.
*PS We are not advocating that saving is not important, but we’re just saying that we don’t know of a millionaire who became one just from saving.
