This is the biggest clue to which of your thoughts need to change in order for you to cross the millionaire hurdle. Here are a few of my favorite quotes from one of my mentors, Robert Kiyosaki.
“You’ll often find that it’s not mom or dad, husband or wife, or the kids that’s stopping you. It’s you. Get out of your own way.”
“The single most powerful asset we all have is our mind. If it is trained well, it can create enormous wealth in what seems to be an instant.”
“Start small and dream big.”
“If you want to be financially-free, you need to become a different person than you are today and let go of whatever has held you back in the past.”
“People who dream small dreams continue to live as small people.”
“We all have tremendous potential, and we all are blessed with gifts. Yet, the one thing that holds all of us back is some degree of self-doubt. It is not so much the lack of technical information that holds us back, but more the lack of self-confidence.”
The Cashflow Quandrant is a way of looking at different individuals in the business world based on their core values - which inevitably show up in how they live their day to day life.
Employee “I’m looking for a safe, secure job with benefits.” Core Value of Security
Self-Employed “If you want it done right, do it yourself.” Core Value of Independence
Business Owner “I’m looking for a good system, good network, and the smartest people I know to help run my business.” Core Value of Accumulation
Investor “I find ways to use my money so that it comes back to me multiplied.” Core Value of Freedom
Employees and Self-employed individuals work hard for money. Business owners and Investors work hard for a few years because they know that what they are doing will provide freedom for the rest of their lives.
Tardus helps people get to the Investor side of the quadrant... investing in a way that brings cash flow vs. trying to accumulate wealth long-term through the traditional stock market, buy and hold strategy.
Your core values inherently affect your professional life, which in turn affects the rest of your life and those around you. Which quadrant do you fall into and what are you doing about it?
