What makes Organo Gold superstars so special?
Yes, you can be merely 'average' and only earn a few hundred extra dollars a month with a new Organo Gold business, or even 1 or 2 extra thousand dollars a month. If that's all you want and need, that's fine! You can even give up and quit after a few early setbacks. In fact, that's what most people do - if they ever try at all.
Others see it far differently. These types don't consider themselves a success until they are earning 5-figures a month, at a minimum. They achieve above-average results, and it's the way these people think about themselves and the world that makes all the difference. And you know what? You can be just like they are, because you're no different than they are. It's all in your mind.
Here are some prime examples of what I'm talking about. Consider each one carefully:
1) Average people think that money is the root of all evil. Rich people believe that poverty is the root of all evil. The average person has been brainwashed to believe rich people are lucky or dishonest, and that's not 'fair'. Politicians (and they're all rich, by the way) will tell you the same thing. That’s why there’s a certain shame that comes along with “getting rich” in lower-income communities. The wealthy among us know that while having money doesn’t guarantee happiness, it does make your life easier and more enjoyable. When you can let go of worrying about what other people think about you, then you've got the power to earn as much money as you will ever need with a new Organo Gold coffee business.
2) Average people think selfishness is a vice. Rich people think selfishness is a virtue. The rich go out there and try to make themselves happy first. They don’t try to pretend to save the world, because they're busy looking out for Number One. The problem is that middle class people see that as a negative... and it’s keeping them poor. Say, for example, that you want to 'Save the Whales'. Well that a good and just cause. But here's the problem. If you’re not taking care of you, you’re not in a position to help anyone else, much less a whale. You can’t give what you don’t have. First get rich, then bring your checkbook around and ask, "Does anybody here need anything"?
3) Average people have a lottery mentality. Rich people have an action mentality. While the masses are waiting to pick the right lotto numbers and praying for prosperity, the great ones are solving problems and taking massive action. Those who lead lives of quiet desperation are waiting for something or someone to show up and save them - i.e. God, the government, their boss or perhaps a new spouse. It’s the average person’s level of thinking that breeds this approach to life (and living) while the clock just keeps tick, tick, ticking away. Never forget that it's later than you think and time is passing quickly. Those who have made it their major purpose in life to aquire riches understand this.
4) Average people think the road to riches is paved with formal education. Rich people believe in acquiring specialized knowledge. Many world-class performers have little formal education, and have amassed their wealth through the acquisition and subsequent sale of specific knowledge. In fact, one of Organo Gold's most famous top-earners is from Hondorus, and probably has about a 4th grade education. Meanwhile, the moneyless masses are convinced that master’s degrees and doctorates are the way to wealth, mostly because doctors, lawyers and engineers 'appear' rich, and they have expensive degrees. However, the truly wealthy aren’t interested in the means - only the end. Stuffed camels, bottle tops or Organo Gold coffee. They don't care what the business is, so long as they can understand it and earn a fortune with it... and Organo Gold is very easy to understand.
5) Average people long for 'the good old days'. Rich people dream of the future. Self-made millionaires get rich because they’re willing to bet on themselves and project their dreams, goals and ideas into an unknown future. By the way, today is yesterday's future! People who believe their best days are behind them rarely get rich, and often struggle with unhappiness and depression. People see money through the eyes of emotion. Rich people think about money logically. An ordinarily smart, well-educated and otherwise successful person can be instantly transformed into a fear-based, scarcity-driven thinker, whose greatest financial aspiration is to retire comfortably. The self-made wealthy see money for what it is and what it’s not, through the eyes of logic. The great ones know money is a critical tool that presents options and opportunities.
6) Average people earn money doing things they don’t love. Rich people follow their passion. To the average person, it looks like the rich are working all the time, and they don't want to be like that. But one of the smartest strategies of self-made millionares is doing what they love and finding a way to get paid for it. On the other hand, the middle class (and the poor) take jobs they don’t enjoy because they need the money, and they’ve been conditioned by society to equate earning lots of money with 'too much' physical or mental effort. So it's an endless loop. They keep doing what they dislike so that they can afford to keep doing it.
7) Average people set low expectations so they’re never disappointed. Rich people are up for the challenge. Psychologists, other mental health experts and even friends and family often advise people to set low expectations for their life to ensure that they are not disappointed. But no one will ever strike it rich and live their dreams without huge expectations. You must set big, big goals and then make it your life's purpose to achieve them. That is, if it's something BIG (as in wealth) that you want.
8) Average people believe you have to DO something to get rich. Rich people believe you have to BE something to get rich. That’s why people like Donald Trump go from millionaire to nine billion dollars in debt and come back richer than ever. While the masses are fixated on the doing (and the immediate results of their actions), the great ones are learning and growing from every experience. They're becoming something more. Whether what they are trying to do is a success or a temporary failure, they know their true reward is becoming a human success machine that eventually produces outstanding results.
9) Average people believe that you need lots of money to make money and so they never get started. Rich people often start with little to nothing and start right away. Rich people know that not being solvent enough to personally afford something is not relevant. The real question is, ‘Is this worth buying, investing in, or pursuing?’ If so, they'll find a way to get started. They'll borrow, they'll get a second job, they'll get a partner or they'll sell their furniture. 'Not having the money to get started' never stops them.
10) Average people believe the markets are driven by logic and strategy, or that it's a 'rigged game'. Rich people know that the markets are driven by emotion and greed. Investing successfully in the stock market (for example) isn’t just about fancy math formulas or investment theories. The rich know that the primary emotions that drive financial markets are fear and greed, in that order. They factor human nature into all trades and trends they observe in the financial markets - and they often go against the trend. They aren't afraid of the occasional loss because they know that they'll earn more.
11) Average people live beyond their means. Rich people live below theirs. Here’s how to live below your means and tap into the secret wealthy people have used for centuries: Get rich so you can afford to. The rich live below their means, not because they’re so savvy, but because they earn so much money that they can afford to live like royalty while still having a king’s ransom socked away for the future. In fact, your next door neighbor (out there mowing his own lawn) may be a self-made millionare and you just don't happen to know it! Remember, when it comes to money, you'll never be able to manage large amounts of it if you can't manage small amounts.
12) Average people teach their children how to survive. Rich people teach their kids to get rich. Rich parents teach their kids from an early age about the world of “haves” and “have-nots”. That's not to say that these parents are teaching their kids to look down on the masses because they’re poor. This isn’t true at all. What they’re teaching their kids is to see the world through the eyes of objective reality - the way society really is and the way the world works. If children understand wealth early on (and what it takes to both earn it and keep it), they’ll be more likely to strive for it later in life.
13) Average people let money stress them out. Rich people find peace of mind in wealth. The reason wealthy people earn even more wealth is that they’re not afraid to admit that money can solve most problems. Those who struggle financially see money as a never-ending, but necessary evil that must be endured as part of life. The self-made rich, on the other hand, see money as the great liberator. With enough of it, they are able to purchase financial peace of mind, along with a great many experiences that most people will never know.
14) Average people would rather be entertained than educated. Rich people would rather be educated than entertained. While the rich don’t put much stock in furthering wealth through formal education, they appreciate the power of learning long after college is over. Walk into a wealthy person’s home and one of the first things you’ll see is an extensive library of books they’ve used to educate themselves on how to become more successful. The middle class reads novels, tabloids, entertainment magazines and, of course, watches lots and lots of television.
15) Average people think rich people are snobs and wouldn't want to be around them. Rich people want to surround themselves with like-minded people, because it rubs off. The negative money mentality poisoning the middle class is what keeps the rich hanging out with the rich. That's because they can’t afford the mental messages of doom and gloom. This is often misinterpreted by the masses as 'snobbery'. Labeling the rich as snobs is another way the middle class finds to feel better about themselves and their chosen path of mediocrity.
16) Average people focus on saving and playing it safe with money. Rich people focus on earning, and knowing when to take risks. The wealthy get that way by focusing on what they’ll gain by taking risks, rather than how to save what they have. The masses are so focused on clipping coupons and living frugally that they miss major opportunities. Even in the midst of a cash flow crisis, the rich reject the nickle and dime thinking of the masses. They are the masters of focusing their mental energy where it belongs: on the big money.
17) Average people love to be comfortable. Rich people find comfort in uncertainty. For the most part, it takes guts to take the risks necessary to make it as a millionaire. That's a life challenge most middle class thinkers aren’t comfortable with. Physical, psychological, and emotional comfort zones are the primary goal of the middle class mindset. World class thinkers & doers learn early on that becoming a millionaire isn’t easy, and the need for comfort can be devastating. They learn to be comfortable while operating in a state of ongoing uncertainty. They thrive on it.
