First off, I want to thank you for reading this series on the six rules of gaining wealth. Today, we’re on the penultimate rule, number 5: Stop inventing obstacles to overcome.
What does this rule mean? Simply put, it’s telling you to be unafraid of making changes in order to achieve success. Stop saying that a person, event, or trait is blocking your way, ultimately preventing you from going forward, simply because you don’t want to change it.
You have the ability to change any situation you’re in. You aren’t a tree—heck, even trees know they need to bend in order to avoid breaking. Here’s the thing, you have to learn to bend, too. Nature gives us many great examples of making adjustments in order to accommodate the wind, the sun, or the drought in order to survive.
There are no excuses. If you aren’t in the right location, move. If you’re in the wrong business, get out of it. If you don’t have enough capital, find a way to earn more. Nothing is going to just appear for you. We all need to make changes in our lives that will help, not hinder our success.
Take the time to learn how to do things in your unique way. Find your way and run with it. Everyone has obstacles holding them back, even me. Sometimes it’s hard to overcome your obstacles, but you won’t get anywhere if you don’t try. Find a way to overcome your obstacles, and you’ll be on your way to success.
