The best blog posts come from books. The book of this week is Retire Young Retire Rich by none other than Robert Kiyosaki.
In the book he hammers in the point that rich people operate in a different reality than the rest of us. He even takes it so far as to say that rich people don’t think different than the poor and middle class, they think the complete opposite.
An example of this is the thinking that a job is safe and a business is risky. Another is the thinking that you have to buy a big house. These are all things that get hammered into us at a young age.
Robert says that the rich think that a “safe” job is actually risky and learning how to start a business is actually the safer path. He also says the rich people buy big apartments and poor people buy big homes. One puts money in your pocket and the other takes money out. The difference is people will think the apartment is risky but their house is safe. In 2009 we saw how safe those homes were.
The concept of your thoughts, your words and your reality hits home because Robert says that when you think something is real you will find evidence to support your reality. This is why people who think they are oppressed can find all the video evidence and data they need to prove that they are oppressed even if its only half the clip and telling half the story. They take it, run with it and protest protest protest.
If you believe you should be rich you will find people who have done what you want to do to support the reality that you can get rich. If you think you are poor and can’t ever get rich you will find the evidence to support that you are poor and wont get rich (Tone Talks has all the evidence you need). Your thoughts become things. Just like you can use thoughts to create wealth you can use thoughts to create poverty.
I believe that your reality is the reality you create and the reality you choose to see. This is why I say that the people who say it can’t be done are right. They are right for them. It is a self fulfilling prophecy. They will hang with losers who aren’t doing it, they will research people who failed and they will sit around dwelling and complaining.
The point of this post is that you don’t have to be poor, oppressed, held back or defeated. This is a choice. Just like the book Wealth CHOICE and Think and Grow Rich a Black CHOICE.
In the Bible, Deuteronomy 30:19, the verse says “I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life”. Choose life, choose wealth choose to grow, choose to see the greatness in this world and the possibilities are out there. If you choose the opposite you will find evidence to support your stance in the opposite and you will be right but you won’t be wealthy. Choosing life looks like meditating on life, reading and watching life, finding people who live great lives that look like you, hanging around them, learning growing, they exist you just have to take off those defeated glasses and see the world through new lenses.
I believe that we have to reject our “reality”. These people like Tone Talks who talk about reality instead about what could be are the reason slaves stayed on the plantation when they outnumbered their master. They point at their guns and their horses and their laws… They are right, but they are also defeated. To win you have to see all those things and proceed anyway. Create a new reality instead of living a life that submits to your current reality.
This is the reason we beg for inclusion and give all our top tier talent away to the NFL, to Netflix, to Nike to the highest bidder. Stop that. I want you to choose to see your greatness not your flaws. Choose to change your reality and create a new one not dwell in the current one. The people who do great things are those that look at reality and decide to change it not dwell within it. We as a community have to get away from the reality and the realism and imagine a world that could be. That is the only way to achieve success.
