Today, the greatest single source of wealth is between your ears.
大家好 我是Brian Tracy
Hello, I’m Brian Tracy,
and today I want to talk to you about
the 7 steps to financial freedom.
And how achieving true financial freedom
doesn’t necessarily mean being filthy rich.
The primary reason for financial problems in life
is lack of self-discipline,
self-mastery and self-control.
Most people have an inability to delay gratification,
and have a tendency to spend everything they earn,
plus a little more,
which is usually supplementing by loans and credit card debt.
One goal that we all have in common
is that we all want to make more money.
We all want to have enough money so that
we never have to worry about money again.
But there’s a question we often forget to ask ourselves,
will more money truly make you a happier person.
There’re more people achieving financial freedom faster today,
than ever before,
but yet you’ll find many of them are not entirely happy.
But with these 7 steps,
you’re gonna accumulate wealth, become happier
and achieve financial freedom,
no matter how much money you have in the years ahead.
First, you have to begin to think positively about money.
Thinking negatively about money
is an emotional obstacle that you must eliminate
in order to achieve financial freedom.
You must eliminate thoughts like
‘money is the root of all evil’,
‘money can’t buy you happiness’.
When you think positively about money,
you’ll attract opportunities and open up more doors
than you ever thought possible.
Rewrite and rereview your goals for financial freedom on paper everyday,
and think about how you could accomplish them.
This will only take you 5 or 10 minutes,
best, first thing in the morning.
Financial freedom must be the centerpiece of all your work
and external activities.
Achieving financial freedom is not something that
happens in a random or hapazard way.
It must be something that you specifically
think about it and define and plan for continuously.
Third, plan every day in advance.
The best time to do this is the night before.
提前规划好每一天 每一周 每个月
Planning each day, each week and month in advance
will make you far sharper and more at everything you do.
You’ll have better focus and greater sense of self-control.
When you work for a plan,
你要计划好每周 每月 每年
you’ll be better able to track your spending habbits as well
by planning how much you have to spend
for the week, the month and the year,
and decide where you’ll be able to save.
The next step is concentrating single-mindedly every hour of every day,
on the most valuable use of your time.
This is the principle of concentration.
And your ability to develop the habit of concentration
will ensure your personal financial success
perhaps more than any other skill or habbit you’re gonna acquire.
The things you focus on the most
and spend the most time doing
should be in direct alignment with your financial goals.
The fifth step is investing in yourself
in terms of your self-improvement and learning.
Listen to audio programs in your car,
purchase courses on time management,
read books on personal finance
and find articles online about money and how to earn more of it.
You’ll have so much knowledge in the area of money,
and in no time people start to come to you for advice.
Next, you’re going to ask yourself these magic questions
after every meeting and event of importance in your life.
The first question is ‘what did I do right?’
and ‘what would I do differently next time?’.
If you take a few minutes and write down
everything you did right
and everything you would do differently,
immediately after a call or a situation,
you can double and tripple the speed at which you learn and grow.
Improving yourself and your quality of work
will in effect improve the amount of money you make.
The final step is to be generous to others.
Treat every single person at home and at work
as if they were the most important person in the world.
It’s a proven fact
that being a more generous person will help you attract more wealth
and become a happier person.
We’ve often heard ‘money doesn’t buy happiness’,
but the truth is that money is essential to happiness,
and material prosperity predicts life satisfaction.
And the more economic status we achieve,
the more satisfied we’ll feel with our life.
So by choosing to focus on money,
goals that motivate you are also embedding
也往往会隐藏在你对金钱 对自己 对生活的积极心态中
a positive mindset toward money, yourself and life in general.
You will achieve both increased wealth and happiness.
