Everyone wants the formula to wealth secrets. I’ve been down that path before, too, my friend. Wealth secrets are more than just racking up the money. It is a lifestyle and a mindset. When you think of wealth secrets, do you think of sitting on a pile of money or dream of how happy you will feel living a life without stress and worry? The definition of wealth is completely subjective.
Your definition of wealth is probably completely different from mine. Then again, it might not be all that different. I am wealthy because I have a family that I love, a relationship that is fulfilling, and I only do what I love to do. I am a happy man. Many people come to me wanting my wealth secrets. They want to get out of debt or double their income. They want to be able to pay their bills and provide a comfortable home for their families.
What would your life be like if you quit chasing the carrot and decided to only do what you love? Doing what you love doesn’t imply some act of spontaneous irresponsibility like just not showing up for work or indulging in that triple chocolate turtle sundae every day. It doesn’t give you a sense of entitlement to spend more money because you deserve it What it does is open up the door to living a life that is abundant in happiness, joy, and success. Amazingly, this so-called “wealth” of material gain often follows suit.
In my past life (or maybe I should say years ago), I had a wife and family. I had a bachelor’s degree in physics. I was a member of MENSA. I had a number of high-paying salaried jobs. I guess you could have called me wealthy, but I wasn’t happy. So how wealthy is that, really?
I would bounce around from one salaried job that I would get bored with and then start a business venture. I’ve tried it all from weight loss clinics to computer software to cab driving and everything in between. As each one failed, I went back to another salaried job that I hated. Eventually, I found myself fat, depressed, and living on my mom’s couch in the basement.
Then I started the real soul-searching. I didn’t just want to make more money. I wanted to live a life that was fulfilling and happy. I began formulating my own wealth secrets. I knew that I loved teaching. I started applying to different high schools to teach physics. Now, I didn’t really want to be a high school teacher, but this was the only option I saw at the time to execute this goal.
I started telling my friends what was going on, and eventually, they started referring me to less traditional forms of education. I became a software educator for big corporations, a motivational speaker, and whatever else that I was qualified to teach. When I started doing what I loved, I realized that I had the key to wealth secrets. After that, everything started to fall into place.
