You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present.

Be rich

Are you putting your efforts into getting rich or into being rich? Living with richness and abundance has more to do with your state of mind than with the statement from your bank.

If you wake up each day with the assumption that you need to work on getting rich, that you are somehow deficient, that immediately puts you at a disadvantage.

It is said that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. And in fact that is often the case. Why does it happen? Because the rich think of themselves as rich and the poor think of themselves as poor. It would be even more accurate to say that those who see themselves as rich get richer and those who see themselves as poor get poorer.

You don’t need a lot of money to be rich. What it takes is a commitment to getting the most from each day, from each moment. When you live richly, when you accept and appreciate the abundance that is yours, much more of it will come your way. Decide to be rich right now, and enjoy growing richer with each passing day.
