The Only Difference Between a Rich Person and a Poor Person is.
If you're like me you are probably reading this intro hoping that you will get the answer straight away...
Well, I feel like this message is probably the best lesson I've ever learnt.
In fact, it is the exact message that I want my whole main business/ brand to represent.
I bet you want to know what it is now?
Hopefully you've opened the whole page by now so I'm not going to drag it out. But I hope you do read the whole of this short post...
The only difference between a rich person and a poor person is how they use their time.
(My main website is called Make Time Online, FYI!)
Think about it...
We all get the same 24 hours in the day.
Nobody has more or less time...
But how often do you hear people say this...
"I just don't have the time to go to the gym"
"I wish I had more time to spend with my family"
"I don't have the time to travel"
"I don't have enough time to dedicate to my online business"
It's all a load of crap!
Apologies for the bluntness...
These are excuses not reasons!
EVERYONE HAS THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME!!
Now read that sentence again.
The difference is that some people use their time wisely, and others squander it.
Time is the most valuable asset we have
So many people already know that this is true.
But you can interpret it in different ways:
Person 1 hears it like this:
"Oh so I need to spend every minute of today making the most of my life... I need to go and eat out at posh restaraunts, or go on holiday now, or spend my time on the beach all day because I love doing that!"
Person 2 hears it like this:
"So if time is the most valuable asset, I need to find ways that I can use my time today so that my time in the future is freed up! That way I will be "rich" in the future to spend my life any way I want"
You can probably see that person 2 will end up having the time to do what they want in the future.
So they create small habits and daily routines that help them to achieve more time in the future!
Most people are in a situation where they are trading their time for money (a job).
Now, not all jobs are really bad and I know some people LOVE their jobs.
Let's talk seriously now...
Would you CHOOSE to be at your job every single day that you HAVE to be there?
Seriously?... every day?
Wouldn't it be better if you got to choose the days that you work?
Choose the amount of time you want to spend on it?
I'm not promoting a life of not "working" or contributing something to society and helping others.
Quite the opposite!
This is what the "rich" do...
They spend their time today making sure that they have freedom... control... time to spend in any way that they want in the future.
They know that if they really want to have an impact and help those they love they will need the time to be able to do it.
Now, I don't mean rich in terms of money (although money is what buys freedom in the 21st Century)... but I mean in terms of
