In this post, and the next two, I will talk about my discovery of the three secrets of the wealthy.

If you have heard me on a radio show or podcast, you probably heard me explain these. I use the acronym AFI as an easy way to remember them. And this has nothing to do with the American Film Institute.

The three secrets are:
1. A = Attitude
2. F = Forms
3. I = Investments

Today I am only going to address the most important, which is attitude.

Our brains are goal-seeking organs. As Henry Ford said, “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

Wealthy people, and people with a wealthy mindset, understand that creating wealth is a team sport, not a solo sport. They hang around with each other, they share what works and what doesn’t, and they support each other.

When an ordinary person hears familiar information, like “Pay Yourself First,” they might make a statement like, “I’ve heard that before” or “I know that” or “That’s not new to me.” I discovered that when I ask someone to explain what it means, 9 out of 10 people can’t do it.

Not only are they not doing it, but they can’t even explain what it means.

When someone with a wealthy mindset hears familiar information they ask questions instead of making statements. They ask questions like:

  • When will I start this practice?
  • How will I institute this practice?
  • What will I do with the money?
  • Where will the money come from?
  • Who can support me with this practice?

Those questions lead to the actions that produce results. Those questions create a transformation. Statements close the mind and produce nothing.

What are the questions you need to ask versus the statements you might have been making?

To Your Prosperity,
