How To Create Wealth By Losing

Jan 24, 2008
Rich people are losers. Now, take a moment and ask yourself what your initial gut reaction to those four words are. Is your initial emotional reaction to the words rich people are losers a positive one or a negative one?

Of course there are going to be one or two smart-asses out there who think this is some kind of test or trick, and respond with a variation of the phrase I did not have any emotional reaction to those words. The actual truth of the matter is, everybody responds with either a positive emotional reaction, or a negative one. You are either in agreement with that phrase, or you are not.

Well, I'm going to explain what I mean by the phrase rich people are losers and why you just might want to be a loser too if you have any hopes of being rich yourself someday. In western society and culture, and in fact most of the world, we have been programmed from the day we were born to understand that there is a difference between winning and losing. In subtle and not so subtle ways, we are taught that winning is good, and losing is bad.

The concepts of winning and losing are ingrained in us from an early age, regardless of how much effort may have been spent in removing those concepts from our thinking. And we associate winning with being good, and the concept of losing with being bad. When a person makes the mental jump from wishing they had more money, to actually doing something to create more wealth for themselves, it is quite natural to see being rich as winning and being the good they are striving towards, and to see their current financial situation as being bad.

That is a good thing, for it helps to propel us towards creating more wealth for ourselves. However, in order to actually create that wealth, we must perform a number of actions. We must have a strategy and process and system to follow in order to create wealth.

Inevitably, we will make mistakes along the way. It is difficult to remember that taking missteps and making mistakes, are part of the process of wealth creation. When we make mistakes, or do something wrong, it is ingrained within us to view that as losing. If we make too many mistakes along the way, we begin to see ourselves as losing and being a loser. Eventually, it may be enough to break our resolve and dash our hopes, and make us quit.

It is important to keep in mind, that no system or process is perfect. Even if it were, you are not perfect. You will make mistakes along the way in your quest to create wealth.

Every person who is currently wealthy, and who did not inherit their wealth, made mistakes along the way. The difference is that they did not let their mistakes stop them. Even in the midst of making their mistakes, they did not stop.

We should learn from our mistakes and not let them stop us. Follow your chosen wealth creation system, and make tons of mistakes, learn from those mistakes, and don't stop until you have reached your goal.

You should make many mistakes and become a loser, if you want to reach your goals and become a winner. In that regard, rich people are losers, and you should be a loser also.
