When you talk to people about their financial situation, there are a few phrases that you hear frequently:
- “I need a raise.”
- “If only I had a promotion.”
- “I’m going back to school for more training to get a better job.”
- “I’ve been working a lot of overtime to make ends meet.”
- “I’m thinking of getting a second job.”
In some circles, these are considered reasonable and sensible ideas. But the problem with these statements is that they focus on the income column of the personal financial statement instead of the asset column.
While it makes sense to make more money, it is only helpful if you use the money you make to purchase cash-flowing assets that in turn help you make more money. The problem for most people—the reason why most people struggle financially—is that they rely on their job for income rather on their investments in assets.
The problem for most people is that they have no financial foundation. read more

Overcome bad habits!
Even more than our education, our habits are a reflection of our lives. Habits are very easy to develop and very hard to break, and once they’re developed, they control our behavior—sometimes in ways that we don’t even recognize. Often these bad habits lead to other bad habits. It’s a vicious cycle. read more
“The sky is falling!” – Chicken Little
Most of us know the story of Chicken Little, who ran around the barnyard crying out about impeding doom after an acorn fell on her head. In the story, the sky is not falling, of course, but to Chicken Little, facts didn’t matter. Rather than investigate and learn what was happening, Chicken Little panicked and spread her fear to others.
All of us know people who are like Chicken Little. And, if we’re honest, we all have an inner Chicken Little who comes out in the face of fear and doubt.
Ultimately, if unchecked, our inner Chicken Little turns us into cynics who always see danger and never take action. If you have any hope of being rich, you must learn to overcome this cynicism in your life. read more

Support is a Major Key to Success
Getting the right support and advice to help you on your journey to financial freedom is essential. In addition to finding the right advisors, you also need to put together a support structure in order to be successful.
As the famous quote by John Donne goes, “No man is an island, entire of itself.” And as I say in It’s Rising Time!, “for you to get from where you are financially right now to achieving your financial dream, you cannot do it all by yourself. It is impossible!”
Unlike your group of good advisors, your personal support group is your reliable, go to places to get moral, mental and emotional encouragement. This is a group made up of people you trust and can turn to, especially when times get tough. They listen, are aligned with you to accomplish your goals, and most important, give you honest feedback – even when you don’t want to hear it!
Face it. We can make a lot of excuses, especially when it comes to money. But imagine making these excuses out loud to a group of close friends whom you trust and admire. They want you to succeed and will provide the encouragement you need to turn your negative thinking around. Without this ongoing, support group in place, you will probably quit.
According to the Mayo Clinic, some of the benefits of support groups include, “Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged, gaining a sense of empowerment and control, improving your coping skills and sense of adjustment, and reducing distress, depression or anxiety.” Who couldn’t use this kind of positive influence in their life? So with this in mind… read more
