😵rationally irrational fears 😖
moving out of london and my normal surroundings brought me closer to nature...literally.
🐜i have a sever case of entomophobia (it's the fear of insects) i have finally found out what it's called! 😜 this concerns any creature of any size crawling in my vicinity. don't get me wrong, i love and cherish all life but ... from afar.
since being in bali i stepped on a frog with my bare foot (it and i survived somehow!), witnessed two huge rats running for their lives out of the kitchen window in the middle of the night 😱, had one humongous jumping cockroach somehow clinging to my finger when i was about to touch my face 🤦🏼♀️. and i am not even going to mention huge flying and small non-flying ants, mosquitoes and flies to suit any taste and hundreds of geckos living in the house.😂
🦎i did grow to like geckos. here you go! closer to nature, right there!
Would you like to know what the rich do that poor people don’t?⠀
first, you have to learn that wealth is not about money, but about mindset.⠀
a rich-minded individual with only $100 to his/her name is much better off than a poor-minded individual with $1 million to his/her name.⠀
✔️the rich are voracious readers.⠀
warren buffett, arguably the world’s greatest investor of all time (worth approximately $73.8 billion), was once asked about the key to success, he responded by pointing to a stack of books and answering:⠀
“read 500 pages like this every day. that’s how knowledge works. it builds up, like compound interest. all of you can do it, but i guarantee not many of you will do it.”⠀
he is not alone.⠀
-mark cuban (worth $3.4 billion) dedicates three hours a day to reading.⠀
-bill gates (worth $90.2 billion) reads 50 books a year, nearly a book a week.⠀
-elon musk (worth $15.2 billion) is an avid reader that claims he learned to build rockets by reading books.⠀
💡 if you want to become rich, you need to be reading books about how to become rich, not googling “easy ways to make money”. 😉⠀
✔️the rich are relentlessly resourceful.⠀
rich people don’t make excuses. rich people are relentlessly resourceful, they always figure out a way to succeed and make more money, regardless of their circumstances.⠀
when rich people are dealt a bad hand, they don’t blame the dealer, they shut the hell up and still figure out a way to win.⠀
✔️the rich don’t save, they invest.⠀
albert einstein famously stated, “compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world.”⠀
he was right, no other worldly wonder has the ability to make a poor man rich.⠀
✔️ the rich believe in positive energy and people.⠀
rich people recognize that they are the average of the five people they surround themselves with, so they surround themselves with a rich, successful and powerful bunch.⠀
if you didn’t know, now you know!
This is such an important concept to understand. you may not be able to control what other people think about you, or how they view you, but other people don’t determine your worth or control your emotions, you do.
