Having money all around you, especially if you’re broke, busted and in debt sounds great. Surrounding yourself with money seems like the perfect way to alleviate lots of problems.
Let me ask you, would you rather hang out with someone who spends their time on the couch playing Grad Theft Auto, or would you rather surround yourself with money people?
Tony Robbins said, and I paraphrase, look at the people with whom you spend most of your time and that’s who you will be in ten years. With whom do you spend most of your time? Are they money people who strive for success and financial independence, or is their biggest achievement watching every weekend game?
Money people have the drive to build and improve, to make their world and yours a better place. They’re the ones do what it takes to achieve success and financial independence. They’re the ones who, as Adam Carroll says, “Build a bigger life, not a bigger lifestyle.”
John and I helped ourselves build a bigger life last weekend. We were driven, set aside the necessary money and went to FinCon15 in Charlotte, NC. We spent four days with other likeminded, driven and motivated individuals focused on creating more than consuming. It was amazing! I don’t know if I’ve ever been so excited, energized and enthused to “build a bigger life.”
It was only four days, though. How do we keep this feeling going? There are plenty of ways we’ll continue to attract money. We made hundreds of acquaintances and friends who want us to succeed as much as they want to succeed. We have Colorado contingency now and have made plans to stay connected with them until FinCon16 in San Diego. We’re following hundreds more on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Through these usually casual resources, we’ll continue our dialogue to continue our growth.
Why? Because these are the people with whom we want to surround ourselves. When Amanda Abella posts about her new article on Huffington Post, we’re inspired. When Miranda Marquit, Tom Drake and Pete Anderson share a new Money Mastermind podcast, we’re energized. When we listen to Adam Carroll’s podcast, “The Four Legacies,” we’re motivated to do amazing things. We want a better life and that’s our focus. We strategize. We plan. We accomplish. We hear, think and act on possibilities and surround ourselves with money people. This will attract success and financial independence.
If you want to surround yourself with money, surround yourself with money people. If you need help surrounding yourself with money people, follow us. Become a money person and other money people will want to surround themselves with you.
