Jobelle from Zealous Entrepreneurs has sent over a great post about how she adopted the rich mindset in her own life. Jobelle went from working for $1,000 a month to creating her own website and building multiple income streams. Check out her awesome story!
What YOU SAY is what YOU ARE.
What YOU BELIEVE in is what YOU BECOME.
The successful people are in their position because they think differently than most people. They respond to things in a very different way. Most people don’t understand an entrepreneur. It’s not because entrepreneurs are crazy as you might think. . . it’s because the society is fed up with the mindset to become an employee, to remain in the middle class. Believe it or not, WE ARE PROGRAMMED TO BE EMPLOYEES!
If you are in a day job right now, but you hate your job, you hate your boss, you hate the commute, you’re tired dealing with difficult people, you want time freedom, that is good news. You have a lot of reasons to escape. But if you are contented with your salary, and it gives you a comfortable life at least, you might forget all those reasons forever wanting to get out.
My first job had a low pay, so I had all the reasons to quit. Then I found another job that pays almost $1000 a month. In the Philippines, that amount is enough to build your emergency fund, pay for your insurance, support your family, and save for your future. So I’d be comfortable with that. I wanted to save as much money so I can retire early.
Then an unwanted event happened. I made a mistake and I was terminated from the project. I was devastated. I need to find another job. Then I decided to go back to my home province and find a job here. LUCKILY, I still don’t have a job. YES! I am thankful that I am not employed yet (and I might not want to get a job ever now). You wanna know why? Because if I were employed I wouldn’t have the time to write this content. If I were employed, I wouldn’t have the time to finish my website. And If I were employed, I wouldn’t have had the confidence I have right now for believing all these things. I already had the rich mindset before, but I don’t have the courage to create a content out of this until Robert T. Kiyosaki has given me the confirmation that I was right all along. Reading from his powerful article on the Cash Flow Quadrant made my heart beat fast.
It is true. I have been lied to. You have been lied to. We were raised to become employees. Study hard, get good grades, get a degree. For what? So there will be workers to make the system running. You probably know that the business owners are those who dropped out of school. The education system doesn’t teach us anything about money management or cash flow. What they teach us in school are the skills needed to become workers.
I was a good student, a consistent honor student, a dean’s lister, a scholar. I’m just glad that I couldn’t find a job where I can use my talent. Maybe because if I ever try to, it causes mistakes. That sounds negative, but I’m happy with that. I am not afraid of mistakes. Mistakes teach us a lot of things, it makes us better at what we do. And I want to be solely responsible for it. So there it is, maybe I need to be the job owner, or better the system owner. God has made a way for me to change my mindset. I needed to change from the poor mindset to the rich mindset.
I am HAPPY and THANKFUL that I LOST MY JOB!
So I am taking action now. What about you? Would you wait for something bad to happen before you get moving? You don’t have to quit your job, but you have to think like an entrepreneur. Do not depend on one source of income. It’s the riskiest.
Every time you think you can't do something, someone else thinks they can.
