Have you ever wondered what it's like to live with a wealthy person – say for 12 months? It could be with Donald Trump, Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey or Mark Zuckerberg? Do you think that if you lived for 12 months with one of them, you’d learn some knowledge, ideas and concepts you could implement into your life that could make YOU wealthy?

What about if you were born to someone wealthy? Let’s say Richard Branson; if you were his son or daughter do you think you would have specific knowledge from him that would allow you to create some financial success?

My answer to those questions is: yes, definitely! And here's why…

If you start looking at different groups of people and families you’ll notice that children tend to pick up the knowledge, behaviours and habits of their parents. If you look at a middle class family, it’s most likely that the children will end up being middle class too. If a family is poor, it’s highly likely that the children will end up being poor because those children end up picking up the thoughts, beliefs and habits of their parents. Now, it doesn’t work like this all the time because some children are born into a poor family but they end up creating massive success after they decide they’re going to figure out how to create it.

So, what is it that separates someone who is poor from someone who is wealthy? The answer to that is: mindset and knowledge. The reason I asked you the questions at the beginning of this post is to help you see that if you were born to, say, Richard Branson, you would have picked up the knowledge he has and also his mindset, beliefs and strategies on how to create great financial success. Then when you got to your adult years, there would have been a high probability that you would’ve become financial successful.

“But my parents aren’t financial successful; how can I become financially successful in that case?” you may ask. Get this: just because you might be poor, broke or unhappy doesn’t mean you can’t create the life that you want. You don’t have to be born to Richard Branson or living with Donald Trump for 12 months to be able to create the success you want. You can get the same amount of knowledge if you read biographies of successful people, read personal development books and books about successful people. Doing this will allow you to pick up on the same knowledge, thought patterns, strategies and actions of successful people, which you can then implement into your own life.

When I got into Personal Development, I wasn’t very happy with my life – I wanted so much more – but then I started growing as a person. I started consuming the life-changing content of Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn, Zig Ziglar, Bob Proctor and read biographies of successful people. Every time I read something new, I’d learn new principles which I could apply in my life and get better and more satisfying results.

As a result of my personal growth journey, I’ve been able to create some awesome financial results in my business, I found my wife (which was one of my biggest dreams), we started a family and have travelled the world. But you know, all this hasn’t happened because I was lucky or because it was all a fluke. It all happened because I worked on myself so I could have the same thoughts, beliefs and behaviours of successful people.

Today, there’s so much more I want to achieve in my life and that’s why I’m never going to stop learning and growing. But the take away from this is that you don’t have to be living with someone wealthy and successful to become wealthy and successful yourself. There is a lifetime’s worth of books, eCourses, audio programs, seminars and blog posts out there that you can get stuck into today and start becoming the successful person you want to be.

Do you want to become successful in your life? And what are you going to do about it? Because if you keep living your life with the same thoughts, beliefs, decisions and actions, then you’re going to continue getting the same results. For you to get different results, you have to start changing yourself from the inside; and once you change yourself from the inside, everything on the outside is going to change.

Did you get value? Is so, I would greatly appreciate it if you commented below and shared on Facebook.
