From the time we are in grade school, we are taught to study hard, and perhaps go to college, so that we can get a good job.
Now, there is nothing wrong with having a job. The majority of Americans will have to work for someone else their entire lives.
However, just because you work for someone else does not mean you cannot build real wealth for you and your family.
Unfortunately, many of us adopt an employee-only mindset that can be very detrimental to your financial future. We tend to only think from the perspective of salary or wages.
Start thinking “ownership of assets”! For that is the only way to create wealth.
I don’t care if you earn $250,000 a year or more – if you don’t think “wealth”, and not just wages, you will never create wealth.
Last week, my investment account made more money in one week than what I earn in two weeks. I made that money in my sleep!
Now I am nowhere close to being wealthy. But I have purchased my ticket, and I’m on the train!
I wish someone had given me this information when I was 20, or even 30. I had to figure this out on my own – and it took me over half a lifetime to do it.
I am a very optimistic person by nature. I tend to focus on the what could go right rather than what could go wrong.
However, even if I weren’t, I would still believe that there will be a tsunami of wealth created over the next 25 years by investing in the stock market. – more wealth than any other period in history.
