Most wealth education can be broken into three schools of thought:


the prosperity consciousness – laws of attraction – manifesting school,


the work hard – productivity school, and the "how-to" skills school.


Each school teaches a partial truth about wealth building.


Wealth is just an effect, and the cause is a three link chain where your probability of success is only as strong as your weakest link. Below are the links

Link 1: Your thoughts determine your actions (manifesting school). (THOUGHTS)

Link 2: Your habitual actions determine your results (work ethic school). (ACTION)

Link 3: Your results are limited by the effectiveness of the plan you implement (how-to school). (PLAN)




In other words, what you think determines what you do (link 1): what you do and how you do it determines your results (link 2): and your results are only effective at attaining a goal when they are focused and directed by a plan based on proven principles that actually work (link 3). It all has to work together or it doesn't work at all. That is a key point to understand.


"There is never a shortage of time. Instead, there is a confusion of priorities." Unknown.


For example,
analytical types are good at planning (link three)
while driven types are strong action takers (link two).
Visionaries and creative types are good at manifesting (link one).

Courage and perseverance have a magical talisman, before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into air."


John Quincy Adams

Making wealth about the pursuit of stuff instead of the pursuit of freedom is a vicious cycle that must be broken otherwise spending grows as income grows causing true wealth to remain forever elusive.
It is directly opposite to actual millionaire's personal finance practices as evidenced by studies such as "The Millionaire Next Door".
Spending your way to prosperity may feel temporarily abundant, but your financial statement knows the truth.
Nobody ever spent their way to financial freedom


Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect."

Faith, Action, Plan, Persistence -


Four Major Elements of Success


Faith, Action, Plan, Persistence – four major elements of success, in fact, they are essential to success in any endeavor, be it business, education, or personal.


As any astute reader can ascertain, any one of these elements would warrant an entire book to fully evaluate and consider. So, due to the constraints of space, we can only touch on the basics in this article.


First in our examination is Faith. It is also first in importance, for without faith, utilization of the other three would be merely going through the motions and would be destined to failure. Faith, coupled with acute desire combine to make an unstoppable force toward any goal.


With faith, we know we can succeed. With faith, we can see our accomplishment before we achieve it. With faith, we have already succeeded. With faith, we conquer fear and doubt, the enemies of success. With faith, we overcome obstacles before they arise.


Fear, the opposite of faith is conquered by action, our second element of success. Faith, the knowledge that we will not fail, drives our action. By taking action, we demonstrate and bolster our faith.


Without action, faith is dead. Action is the natural occurrence of faith. Action is the physical embodiment of faith. Daily action toward our goal is essential to find success.


“If you fail to plan, you plan to fail”, a popular saying that has a great deal of truth. One must have a plan of action. Random, undisciplined action, will not result in success. A clear, definite plan with prescribed steps is the only course that will ensure success.


Just as starting out traveling without any idea of how one is going to make their way to a destination is lunacy, so is trying to hit a goal without any definite plan to achieve it.


The final element of success, persistence is vital to success. Once you have the faith that you will succeed and you take action on a prescribed plan, you must persist in that action. The greatest faith in the greatest plan will not succeed unless action is taken on a persistent basis.


Winston Churchill, the prime minister of England during the second world war summed it up best. “Never, never, never, never give up.” There are thousands of quotes from famous, successful people on their reason for success that contain the element of persistence. Here are a few:


“Never consider the possibility of failure; as long as you persist, you will be successful.” Brian Tracy


“Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.” Thomas A. Edison


“We can do anything we want to do if we stick to it long enough.” Helen Keller


“It’s hard to beat a person who never gives up.” Babe Ruth


The list goes on and on, with quote after quote from famous, successful people who have won because of persistence.


In conclusion, I hope it is obvious how each of these elements of success depend upon the other. With the absence of any one, the rest are rendered ineffectual. Faith is required for one to start. You must see yourself winning in order to have the desire to start toward a goal.


Faith is dead without action. All the faith in the world will fail if action is not taken.


Action, without a clear, definite plan will spend energy on movement without direction and it will fail.


And short lived action that is not long-term, persistent action will not result in success.


All of these elements are essential and work together to ensure success.
