I want to be rich and I am so sure about that! I just want to share to you my commitment on getting rich.

They are searching for a formula online or even on different business and finance books.

Today, I will share to you how to become committed on your goals in life, and one of these goals is to become wealthy.  To become rich isn’t wrong, actually in the book “the science of getting rich” written by Wallace Wattles stated that

“There is nothing wrong in wanting to get rich. The desire for riches is really the desire for a richer, fuller, and more abundant life; and that desire is praiseworthy”.

I love reading books, from spiritual, self development to business and finance book. Year ago, I collected different business and finance book. These books had changed my life positively especially the books written by T. Harv Eker, Robert Kiyosaki, Francisco Colayco, Bo Sanchez, David King, Napoleon Hill and Wallace D. Wattles

I stopped for being a busy person, I read books heart to heart, opened my mind and analyze what’s really going on to my finances. I realized that I am just busy but not busy and committed in becoming a rich person.

I will also share with you how I became an investor. From zero knowledge, I took action from what I read. From zero balance (capital), it is amazing now that I am stock market investor, a shareholder in some mutual funds companies in the country and I have some investments trust account in the banks.

As you have noticed, do I just read books? I didn’t stop learning, I took action and see what will happen. I just follow the guide on the books and got it. The formula isn’t hard to follow, the formula in getting rich are “knowledge” + “specific goal” + “commitment” + “rich mindset” is equal to success.

At mid 40’s, I should acquire more than enough money to travel the world and enjoy its beauty.

Now, the question is how to get rich? I am not teaching you to join different rich quick scheme programs offered by networkers. I will answer your question directly and specifically on how to become really rich as you continue reading this article.

Millionaire’s Mindset
Getting rich isn’t easy. It is hard. But, when your body, mind and soul are committed in acquiring riches, everything is very easy. There are specific guide to follow here at InvestmentTotal.com;

1. Stop working for a while – go to a silent place, have a sound of silence. Maybe in your bedroom. Where in, you are the only person in that place. Make sure no one will disturb you. Think about your fast, your current situation. Analyze the problem. Pray to God. Cry, mourn if you want.

2. Think about what you really want in life – after you have prayed, have a list on what you really want in life. Just write them down. Make sure you have a pen and notebook in your hands. Things like; specific amount of money (example P10,000,000), a great relationship with your spouse and kids, a wonderful blessed family, a great career or business, more time with yourself and with your loved ones.

Another example, living in a peaceful and secured place, a luxury car, a house and lot, a profitable business and many more that you really want in life.

If you ask me what I really want, I will share it with you today.
I want P10,000,000 worth of investment in my mutual funds, another P10,000,000 investment in my UITF accounts and extra P5,000,000 stocks equity.

I want a white Ford Everest for my family, a red Toyota Corolla Altis, a black shiny BMW car, a house and lot with music room, 3 bedrooms, office for my blogging ventures, and mini library. (study room)

I want to earn P5,000,000 per year regularly in my businesses such as swine raising and business enterprises.

I want to have a healthy lifestyle, maintain my spiritual maturity, a great relationship with God and other people, helping my community. I want to travel the whole Philippines from Luzon to Mindanao in 3 years. I want to go abroad (Paris, New York, Hawaii) not for work but for pleasure experiences (that’s it)

I have a blessed family, a healthy kids. (Granted already). Thank you Lord.

3. After thinking, set a specific goal – you have to set a specific goal, thinking is just a part of this process. You should not stop in thinking, go and make a plan. What is your plan, when do you want to achieve your goal? When do you want to become rich? At age 45 or at age 65.

4. Think how rich people think -do what millionaires are doing
You have to have a millionaire mindset. You have to know how rich get richer. How they manage their finances. How do they think when it comes to making money? How do they treat other people? Are rich people happy and generous? Most of rich people are happy and generous like Warren Buffet – one of the most successful and rich investor in the world.

Work hard and invest what you have earned. Working hard isn’t enough, you must know how to grow your money so that you will never work hard in your entire life, instead, your hard-earned money will take your place and work hard for you..

Millionaires invest, millionaires take risk. Rich people do whatever it takes to acquire more riches. Millionaires play the stock market today, rich people invest in real estate, rich people are bosses, rich people are business owners not employees, rich people play their money in these different types of investments.

5. Be happy and rich – awhile ago, I stated “be happy first and the money will follow”. If your purpose why you want to become rich is to become happy, I think you better change that purpose beginning today. Money can guarantee you happiness and contentment, however, money is just an instrument to make you happy. Therefore, be happy first and the money will follow.

Are you happy on what you are doing? Are you happy when you are investing? Are you happy on what you get from the return on your investments? Are you happy in your present job or business? Are your customers happy? Are your clients happy? Happiness is everything.

6. Thank God with all your heart – get rich slowly by means of investing small amount of money for a specific period of time. Wait patiently. After you had reached your target or goal. Do not forget to praise Almighty God and give Him thanks for the wealth, health and happiness he had given you. Give thanks by offering or tithing – the holy offerings inside the church.

For employees, you can get rich on the internet using your free hours, by means of affiliate marketing, blogging, virtual assistant, website developer,game or apps developer.

Getting rich from home is also one of the best ideas for other parents, if you love foods, then try to sell foods in your local community. Some entrepreneurs are posting their products online like Facebook, they make a sale via online.

The best way to become really rich is by getting rich slowly. Do not look for investment opportunities or home based business that promises high returns. Avoid getting scammed by learning how to invest your money wisely. Here at InvestmentTotal.com, there are lot of guides to invest your money such as stock investing, mutual funds and UITF.
