Is This Typical Middle-Class Attitude Holding You Back from Making More Money?

It is usually hard for people to admit this

How many people would like to make a million dollars in a few days?

Lots of people will jump up excitedly. Then, ask them how many of them will facilitate a certain law to be passed in the country where they reside. You would see the disappointment in their faces.

Not trying at all, is the first crime of wannabes that never be

As bad as that is, it is not the greatest thing holding middle-class people back. When they get excited about the possibilities of getting rich and making more money, they decide to take a leap (that is well-marketed to them).

They ask for their money back

I have never seen a multimillionaire or a billionaire today who talks about getting into something that wasn’t worth it, that asked for their money back. And they all have such instances or experiences.

Rich people stomach losses, that is why they are rich

The middle-class person doesn’t want to lose what they have. You cannot be rich until you lose what you have. It goes away from you, it dies and then something beautiful grows from its grave. That is how rich people get their breakthroughs.

Every successful person I know looks back at their story and points out lessons from even the most ridiculous experiences

To say you didn’t learn anything is to affirm that you will never learn anything.

It’s okay to make losses but it is not okay to walk back on your financial commitment

If you desire refunds, seek it in the form of a better product or service than what you just got. Never ask for the money back. Never ever do. It is a pattern that is hard to explain, but people who do never go beyond where they are financially.
