Wealth Creation: The Skills You Need to Succeed

Dec 14, 2007
Jamie McIntyre, developer of the 21st Century Academy Wealth Creation program, has spent years studying what it is that sets wealthy people apart in life. Surely, as Andrew Carnegie pointed out to his protege, Napoleon Hill, there must be some things the wealthy have in common that allow them to succeed in wealth creation. Surely, there are.

How Different Are The Wealthy?

The wealthy do not differ in any way that would preclude the success of the average man or woman. As a group, wealthy people are no more intelligent than the average man, they do not have access to education of any sorts that would exclude the average person, and they do not live in a select location reserved for wealth creation. The wealthy are men and women just like everyone else - of average intelligence, living everywhere all over the world, from all walks of life.

What, then, is it that lets the rich succeed at wealth creation when the average man does not?

Essential Skills Of The Wealthy

As it turns out, it is possible to identify key traits and skills of the wealthy that result in their ability to excel at wealth creation. Jamie McIntyre has been able to identify four key skills that promote successful wealth creation and the ability to achieve financial freedom. There is no mystery to these skills, and they are easily developed, but nevertheless, the four skills outlined following are skills that the masses are largely lacking.

- Creative Thinking
Most people are not able to think creatively to solve problems. Developing the ability to do so allows a person to look at a situation from a different angle, and to find a unique solution almost every time. Creative thinking prevents the wealthy from falling into the trap of making the same mistakes over and over.

- The Art of Negation
The wealthy are skilled negotiators. Not surprisingly, the middle-class is not. Lacking the ability to artfully negotiate, the middle class fail to get what they want and need. They accept 'no' for an answer far too often and let the fear of rejection keep them down.

- The Art of Communication
Again, the wealthy have mastered the ability to communicate clearly and effectively. They know how to get their point across and communicate the benefit of what they are arguing to achieve their desired end result. The middle class are much less effective at communicating, and so cannot sell their own advantages.

- Marketing Masters
The wealthy know how to package and market themselves, their ideas, and their products. The middle class, as might be guessed, do not know how to market themselves overly well. Those who succeed at wealth creation can use that ability to think creatively to promote whatever it is they are "selling" and get people "buying".

Fortunately, all is not lost for those who have not yet mastered the skills of wealth creation success. Any man or woman can easily learn to think creatively, negotiate, communicate, and market themselves. And with these four skills for wealth creation mastered, that same man or woman can go on to join the ranks of the financial successful!
