Passing
Over
Opportunity
Repeatedly

Regardless of your current position or lack of a position there are 2 ways of defining the lack of money circumstances some are going through today. Either you are broke, which is completely fixable, or you are poor. Being poor and being broke are two totally different things.

If you are broke chances are at some point you had money or probably somewhat of a comfortable life style.  But, when you are poor you have a whole other situation to deal with. Being poor IS a state of mind. As you can see in the acronym above poorness is the difference between of having the mental capacity to seize an opportunity or not seize and opportunity. When you view yourself as broke chances are you are looking for a way to become un-broke, or wealthy. (Preferably wealthy!) When the poor thoughts start creeping in then there is trouble!

When you say to yourself and affirm “I am poor,” what you are doing subconsciously is giving up. You have faced the fact you have failed and there is no way out and nowhere to go.

Well I am here to tell you, either you can make money or you can make excuses, but you can’t do both! So, which is it going to be? Are you going to simmer down with the 95% of people who will be dead or dead broke by 65, or are you going to suck it up, refuse mediocrity, and join the 5% at the top?

If properly motivated you can accomplish anything. What drives you? What are you passionate about? Is it family, helping people, not being trapped in an office, time freedom, wealth accumulation, stability? All of these options are possible, but will you be able to identify the opportunity when it comes knocking on your door?

You deserve success and for all of you dreams to come true, isn’t that what we are told when we were little. We live in America, the land of opportunity where dreams come true. If you are a voluntary slave (W-2 employee) to a position you despise, then stop building someone else’s dream! Take time to create what your dream world would look like, learn how to perceive an opportunity, take a leap of faith, and make your dreams a reality.

Never complain about what you are willing to permit. You are designed for greatness, but programmed for failure. Allow yourself some personal time to work on you. You ARE amazing!

Have a spectacular day!

  1. I hope this serves as a wake-up call for whoever reads it. Being broke is temporary, being poor is forever.

    It’s sad to see all the people in a state of apathy and learned helplessness because they’ve “tried everything” and it hasn’t worked out. Little do they know that they’ve passed over tons of opportunities, and could be in a much situation today if they would have opened their eyes towards them.

    I believe it’s a fear based mindset that blinds people to the opportunities available. They say, “I can’t do that” because of this that or the other reason. And then they wonder why they can never create the life of their dreams.

    Thanks for another great article Joe! Keep up the good work.
