Getting Rich (in America) Takes 3 Things
According to Jim Rohn, getting rich (in America) is easy. It only takes three things:
- Be in America
- Find an Opportunity
- Grow (take action)
The first thing (for Jim) was being born in America. Despite all that you may perceive to be wrong in America, there is still more things right than wrong. The United States still represents the land of opportunity, more opportunity than most other places on earth. As Jim points out, the boats are not going to Cambodia, or Viet Nam, or China, or India or…name your country. They are coming to America as Neil Diamond sang in his classic song.
Why is that? Because most of the world still perceives America as the place to be . There are many stories of penniless immigrants coming to America and making their fortunes, getting rich. Witness Andrew Carnegie for example. Carnegie was born in Dunfermline, Scotland, and immigrated to the United States with his very poor parents. Yet he led the enormous expansion of the American steel industry in the late 19th century. He built a leadership role as a philanthropist for the United States and the British Empire.
Did Andrew Carnegie have an opportunity that was not available to anyone else? Did Henry Ford or Thomas Edison or Marconi or…Hardly! They simply acted on the opportunity that was available to anyone.
[mlsp-cta campaign=”bizbuildermasterynet” layout=”standard” align=”left”]The second requirement for getting rich is an opportunity. America still leads the world in that category as well. Opportunity abounds. Many people fail to recognize opportunity because it comes disguised in workman’s clothes. It knocks on the door when “the time isn’t right”. What is the standard excuse? “I’m too busy” or “Not now, I don’t have the money”! Maybe next year… Ha Ha there is no next year. They all blend together and merge into one continuous lifetime of drudgery, living in the uncomfortably familiar zone of TV, murder mysteries, sports and beer! Wow! What a life!
The final piece in getting rich is change. For anything to change, you have to change. Growth is the impetus that will propel you to great heights or mire you in the quicksand of the uncomfortably familiar zone. The choice is yours. Grow or die! It really is that simple so what does your life one year from today look like?
Getting Rich Take The Plunge
Are you willing to take the plunge and make the changes you need to make, get up an hour early, go to bed an hour later, turn off the tele, put down the beer? Grab a copy of Hal Elrod’s book, “The Miracle Morning” or Tony Robbins book, “Money Master The Game” and get in gear. Read 10 pages of a good book every day and you will grow. Take action and you will prosper!
