The belief system of the super-rich, by Yemi Adetayo

The truth is, if you know what the rich know and do what they do, you will get the same result. You must realize that the super-rich know that life will not give them what they deserve but what they desire. The first thing they do then is to positively affect their belief systems. Your belief system will affect your drive in life. In order for your desires to work for yourself, you must believe that you too can be rich.

Life does not give you what you deserve; he gives you what you want. If you look around you will see many contradictions. Do you know how many graduates and masters work for illiterate bosses, all because they don’t believe in themselves?

Life doesn’t care about having a first degree or a master’s degree. The basic question is: What are your desires? What exactly do you want to become in life? Are you living your dreams? The worst thing that can happen to a living soul is to believe that the super-rich aren’t ready to welcome more people into their fold. This kind of thinking can kill his dreams and cause him to develop a three square meal mentality. Turn on your dreams and wake up to make your dreams come true.

Life will not give what you deserve but what you desire

The truth is, if you know what the rich know and do what they do, you will get the same result. You must realize that the super-rich know that life will not give them what they deserve but what they desire. The first thing they do then is to positively affect their belief systems. Your belief system will affect your drive in life. In order for your desires to work for yourself, you must believe that you too can be rich.

The common belief of the poor is that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. You need to know why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. The fundamental factor that works against the poor is their belief system. It is not the diploma that will pave the way for you. The fact that you don’t have a degree can’t be a stumbling block either. Positive beliefs have a way of empowering you to succeed.

Just because you change your belief system doesn’t mean your situation will change overnight. But gradually things will start to change, you will start meeting positive people and you will start encountering challenges that will bring out the best in you. Also, know that if everyone believes in you and you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t make it.

Is success more difficult than failure?

Some people think that it is harder to succeed than to fail. Is it true ? Nope! Failure is a habit and so is success. Your state of life is generally consistent with your belief system. If you are to succeed you must realize that success is not more difficult, it might be difficult at first but with time it becomes easy, while failure is easy but will definitely make life difficult.

Incremental improvements

Just because you change your belief system doesn’t mean your situation will change overnight. But gradually things will start to change, you will start meeting positive people and you will start encountering challenges that will bring out the best in you. Also, know that if everyone believes in you and you don’t believe in yourself, you won’t make it. But if nobody believes in you but you believe in yourself, you will certainly succeed.

Wealth is a matter of decision and the decision is personal. I have a cousin who has not passed her WAEC exam once. When we finished our school certificate exam, she only got three credits. She tried again twice and got the same result. In her church, a prophet said she was not cut out for the academic world, and she was advised to learn a trade. But she believed she would get there. She took the exam for the fourth time and still earned three credits. At that time, her father said that he had no more money to waste, that until she decided to learn a trade, she should forget about getting more money from him. She quickly looked for a job, so that she could finance the retake exams herself. She wrote it the fifth time and was able to do five credits, excluding English and math. She took the opportunity to enroll in an evening computer program with the help of one of our uncles. She was able to complete her diploma program. She then rewrote the SSCE exam and got enough credits this time. Later, she was admitted to study computer science in one of the polytechnics. She was able to raise money and went to school. Her father was still watching events unfold and he eventually had to support her when her success became too obvious to ignore. He had to be part of the success story!

The truth is, not everyone needs to believe in you for you to be successful. Believe in yourself and never give up, like my cousin did. People will eventually believe in you when they see you succeed.

Believe in yourself!

People have said that it is not easy to succeed in Nigeria, that everything was easier in the “good old days”. The problem is that we didn’t have the privilege of being there at the time, so we have to make good use of our own days.

Back in my university days, tuition was only 90 naira and I graduated by paying 120 naira. But now, in the same school, people pay up to 125,000 naira. If you haven’t had the privilege of going to school, does that mean you won’t go to school? Not at all, it just means you have to pay more. This means you have to find ways to make it happen. Let’s want good things, even if the economy is tough, and let’s make sure we get them.

You can make impossibilities possible

When Ali Baba got into stand-up, this art form was not in vogue. Some people would have laughed at him, others would have told him to go get a good job. But due to his strong self-confidence, he worked hard on himself and made sure not to give up. He made sure to study hard, do what was necessary, and was eventually able to give birth to the comedy industry. Some have used Ali Baba’s model to become rich and very rich comedians. It became possible because someone believed in themselves. Just by believing in yourself, you could even make our country better. Remember that life doesn’t give you what you deserve, it only gives you your desire. Wealth is not a game of what you deserve, life only gives you what you want. Your desires begin with what you believe. Believe you will get there and you will. You will succeed!
