I have so many people that I just want to prove wrong. People that say
- “The only way to get rich is to get a job”
- “I need a payrise”
- “I can’t afford to invest”
- “Investing is risky”
- “You can’t become financially free by the time you are 26”
- “You can’t invest without any money that is too risky”
- “Why would anyone want to invest with you”
- “I can’t afford to have kids”
- “You need to put your head down and get a job”
- “What are you doing with your life”
There are so many people that just make me ANGRY with the things that they say. Because I know deep down in my heart that what they are saying is full of crap and completely untrue.
But today I realised that I won’t be able to prove people wrong.
Take a look at Steve McKnight. He is the Aussie guy that wrote 0-130 properties in 3.5 years. He kicked ass and proved to everyone that it can be done, but still he doesn’t have the glory of saying “In your face bitches”. He has critics smearing his name and his method all the time, saying he is a fraud and his method doesn’t work EVEN though he proved them all wrong.
I have realised that people do in fact live in different realities. As Christians we like to believe that everything is black and white, that there is right and wrong, possible and impossible. But more and more I am starting to see that many things are relative.
Like people who say “I need a job because I have bills to pay and I have to pay my mortgage”. That statement is true for them because they believe it. Because they believe it their mind won’t stretch to find other money making opportunities. It is real because they believe it is.
So even when I prove people wrong they will never understand because they live in a different reality to me. I can get rich without a job, but they will still believe deep down that you need a job to make money and they will fail to see there is another way EVEN WHEN IT IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEIR FACE.
It is a little annoying because most of the people that fight me live in a different reality to me, so I won’t be able to say “I told you so.”
But knowing this is releasing. If you are doing something just to rub it in someone’s face then you probably shouldn’t be doing it. So it has allowed me to drop that whole aspect and just go after it for me and my family and the people that support me in what I am doing, but aren’t able to do it themselves yet. So it is good to finally get that bad motive out of my system.
