Creating Wealth Through an Open Mind

It's often been said that money makes the world go round and there can be no argument about its necessity. It is a major motivation in our daily actions and the need for it to sustain life is obvious. So much of our time is spent earning, saving, borrowing, spending and dreaming of what we'd do if we had more of it.

For decades we had security when it came to money. Employment was plentiful, the economy was strong, borrowing was easy and spending was abundant. When the global financial crisis struck we realised that we'd been lulled into a false sense of security. Suddenly the whole 'money-go-round' wasn't functioning as it had done before and many were unsure what to do.

But worldwide, even in today’s uncertain financial climate, the equivalent of billions of dollars in all manner of currencies change hands in millions of transactions every day. The world is awash with money, yet so many struggle to make ends meet. Where is the breakdown in the cycle and does it really have to be this way?

Money in your hand is the end result but you have to follow a process to obtain it. As I mentioned before, in times when jobs were abundant this was relatively straightforward. It still is for many today, especially those who are well educated or experienced in a particular field. For those who aren't in such a fortunate position though, what are the options? Basically, you can sit around and feel sorry for yourself or you can do something about it.

A possible reason for people not reaching financial stability is because their mind isn’t open to new or different concepts. All too often we have a preconceived idea that something won't work before even looking at it in any detail. This is especially true when presented with an opportunity on the internet. I've seen it many times and I find it sad that people are letting genuine ways to make money slip through their fingers.

Being objective and open to new possibilities is more important than ever. If we continue to negatively reject everything that's presented to us, we'll never move forward and most certainly never reach any kind of financial freedom. Somewhere along the way we need to develop positive thoughts and focus on the potential instead of possible pitfalls.

“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore”

I can understand people being wary because scams do exist and thrive on naivety. Good advice is that if something looks too good to be true then it probably is. Some argue that it's not actually money that makes the world go round - it's relationships. If you have one the other will naturally follow. In other words, if you want to be wealthy - build relationships. This makes sense. As it applies to online marketing, if you want to establish if an opportunity is genuine network with other people, gather information and form your opinion.

If you have not achieved the financial success you desire and you’re not where you want to be, perhaps it is time to start building relationships. Online forums and social networking sites are a good place to start. You’ll receive insightful and valuable information from a broad cross-section of people. Listen to what they say with an open mind. Verify, clarify and seek more opinions. Do what it takes to satisfy yourself that an opportunity has genuine potential.

Money does make the world go round but, without wanting to state the obvious, we need to earn it in some capacity. Online, it is the end result of a process that often begins with simply being open to new or different ideas. A process that requires that same mentality to then learn, earn and succeed. Again, relationships are a vital key so maintain existing contacts and keep developing new ones. Be wary but don’t be cynical. Listen without prejudice.

Simply put, when it comes to creating wealth, if nothing is ventured, nothing will ever be gained. You will always remain in a similar position unless you are prepared to try something different. A conscious decision to improve your situation. A decision to offer you and your family a better life. A decision to make your dreams come true.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. “
Mark Twain
