Wealth File #9 Problems and Perspective

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker

Rich people are bigger than their problems.

Poor people are smaller than their problems.

“As I said earlier, getting rich is not a stroll in the park.  It is a journey that is full of twists, turns, detours, and obstacles.  The road to wealth is fraught with traps and pitfalls, and that's precisely why most people don't take it.  They don't want the hassles, the headaches, and the responsibilities.  In the short, they don't want the problems.

Therein lies one of the biggest differences between rich people and poor people.  Rich and successful people are bigger than their problems, while poor and unsuccessful people are smaller than their problems.  

Poor people will do almost anything to avoid problems.  They see a challenge and they run.  The irony is that in their quest to make sure they don't have problems, they have the biggest problem of all.. they're broke and miserable.  The secret to success, my friends, is not to try to avoid or get rid of or shrink from our problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that your bigger than your problem.

The bottom line is that if you become a master at handling problems and overcoming any obstacle, what can stop you from success?  The answer is nothing!  And if nothing can stop you, you become unstoppable! And if you become unstoppable, what choices do you have in your life? The answer is all choices.  If you are unstoppable, anything and everything is available to you.”


Write down a problem you are having in your life.

Then list the specific actions you can take to resolve or at least improve the situation.

This will move you from problem thinking to solution thinking.
