Don’t beat me up for saying that! Blame Larry Winget!
Larry Winget is the author of the book, “You’re Broke Because You Want To Be”. I am not sure how I came across this book but I LOVE it. Although I am not broke (Thank God), I have read this book three times already!
I suggest you hop on over to Amazon and get it yourself but here are my biggest takeaways in no certain order…
1. Look at your actions – Larry is big about that. Only then will you find out what is important to you.
2. Align your intentions with your actions - If you want to lose weight, then eat less. If you want to make money on the internet, find a niche and put up a website.
3. Comfortable people don’t feel bad enough to change but don’t feel good enough to really be able to enjoy their lives. - I love this. It is so true…with ALL of us. I tell people they need to be broke enough to work with me…or pissed off enough about their situation so they will make a change in their life.
4. Hospitals are built with money. Charities are funded with Money - You have heard people make statements like money isn’t important to them etc. Typically the people making that statement are broke. Money funds many good things in life.
5. Your biggest problem is between your ears – Fix yourself and you can fix your life.
6. Know where you are – You have know where you are at to know where you need to go.
7. Experience remorse about your situation – We all makes mistakes. You really need to hit bottom before you are ready to make a change.
8. Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke. Broke happens when you don’t have a plan.
9. Create an action plan – This sounds simple but most people don’t have a plan to start a business or getting out of debt. Create a plan to make things happen.
10. Always ask yourself what you could be doing right now to make sure you have the future you want to have.
11. When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.
12. Give before you get - To get what you want, you will have to give up something to make room for the new thing in your life.
I would be curious to hear from others who may have read the book or maybe have heard of Larry Winget.
What do you plan to change in your life? You don’t have to be broke to leave a comment.
