Here are a few commonly held beliefs, or "myths," that hold
many of us back from achieving success...
Myth #1: I don't have what it takes to be successful and
Fact: Successful people were not born that way. In fact, many
of the most successful people today had very difficult lives.
They were regular people who wished for more. And they decided
to do something about it - to change their circumstances.
Anyone can do the same, including you and I.
Myth 2: I don't have any experience or education in anything.
Fact: Many successful people started with no experience. Many
of them also flunked high school and never had any college
The only way to get real education and experience in anything
is by doing, by "starting." Once you start doing it, you learn
Think of all the things that you know how to do. Driving a
riding a bike, playing sports, reading, writing,
walking. All of these things have one thing in common: at one
time in your life, you didn't know how to do any of them.
And despite how impossible it seemed at the time, you decided
to do it anyway. It's the same with everything in life. You
learn by doing. You get experience by doing something a few
times. Get started. Do it once, twice, three times and you're
already on your way to becoming an expert in no time!
Myth 3: To be successful, I have to start a business, and I'm
just not cut out to be a businessperson. I don't have what it
Fact: Listen...I know a few people who can barely read or
write. Yet they're running their own businesses. It's scary, I
know. But think about it...right now, at this moment, you're
already several giant steps ahead of them.
The only difference between a person who's thinking about
starting a business and another who is running a business is
just that. One of them is doing what the other is only
"thinking" of doing. They both had the same ideas and dreams.
They both probably had the same doubts and fears as well. But
one of them decided to start anyway, to take action despite
doubts and fears. One of them decided that if other people
do it, then he could as well.
Myth 4: Money isn't that important.
Fact: Tell that to the family who's starving right now, or to
the family who needs money for serious medical help for a
member of their family. They'll tell you how important money
We've been conditioned from Day 1 to believe that money is not
important. We have been conditioned to believe that wanting
money is wrong and unethical. And yet the entire world seems
run on money.
It is one of the biggest myths known to man. And it's one of
the main reasons why the majority of the people are not
Money is simply a way to measure the amount of value you
for others. If you have a lot of money, it means you have
created a lot of value for other people. If you don't have the
kind of money you'd like to have, that simply means that you
just haven't yet found a way to produce the kind of value for
others that you're capable of, or the value that you'd like
Just look around you at the countries or even cities that have
lack of money. You'll find that in these same places, there
usually more crimes being committed, more people taking
advantage of others, more diseases, more suffering, more
deaths, and none or very little education.
Money may not be the most important thing in life, but let's
face facts here... Money is pretty darned important in this
and age. It's how you support yourself! It's how you buy food,
water, shelter, and clothing. It's how you pay the medical
bills. It's how you help and support others around you,
including your loved ones. And we both know that those are
And by the way, if you feel that it's more important to
contribute to others than to be rich, well guess what, when
have more money, you can contribute more! You can do much more
for others and you can help a lot more people when you have
Only good things can come from having more money.
Myth 5: Money must be made slowly.
Fact: Nothing could be further from the truth. The only way to
make money is to make it quickly! What good is money if you
can't enjoy it right now instead of 20 years from now? What
good is money if you can't contribute to others now as much as
you'd like to, instead of 20 years from now?
The quicker you make money, the quicker you can change your
life and the lives of those around you - for the better. There
are no rules stating that money should be made slowly.
The only way to make money is to make it quickly! You will
find that the more money you make, the easier it becomes to
more because you begin to shift your focus from survival to
abundance and contribution, in the process. And that shift in
focus simply attracts more wealth to you.
