If you want to be rich you must need learn how to defeat poverty
About two weeks ago,
I read a book about the history of my continent Africa, powerful kingdoms and great kings, imperialists and conquerors and about the slave trade and colonialism.
I concluded that almost all human history has been about a strong desire to defeat and conquer.
We, as humans, want to rule others. Sometimes this desire hides in our ambitions. Occasionally through unreasonable Wars and oppression. Sometimes we do it even in public.
Humans and desire are inseparable, but there are some desires Society doesn’t encourage. One of those is the desire to be rich. In most of our societies today, riches are closely associated with frauds lies the deception.
So the desire to be rich is regarded as evil, and that’s why so many people are poor .despite enormous opportunities in the world. in this article, I’m going to be sharing with you how to defeat poverty. I don’t mean how to become a billionaire, what riches mean to me. Sometimes last year,
I discovered that some people know me who are going to Google to search for my net worth. I never expected that, so I became surprised, but why do people care about my net worth. We’re living in a world where most people think Bill Gates is richer than Seth Godin. Which isn’t right, yes Bill Gates has tens of billions and Seth Godin. Only has a few million, but in the real sense of what money is needed for 50 billion isn’t different from 3 million.
Here is what I mean, anyone who can afford what to eat what to drive and where to sleep what absolute comfort is rich, and you don’t need a billion dollars to do that.
While I don’t think it’s a sin to become a billionaire. It’s not my goal instead of the freedom to leave the way I want to afford anything I need. Now that you understood what I mean, whatever I talk about being rich.
How to defeat poverty
Let’s get into how to defeat poverty. Which, to me, is the inability to afford your freedom.
Almost all of us have read the book Think and Grow Rich. It’s easy to forget great lessons in such books. To me, the most critical experience in Think and Grow Rich is that every individual that ever became rich had a desire. A strong desire to be rich. I love to use the word desperate because I think it conveys the message better than the word desire .
Do you wish to defeat poverty, then you must have a strong desire to be rich. It would help if you were desperate, and because the word desperation connotes negative behaviour.
Let me tell you a personal story in the year 2008. I left school without any degree or certificate and decided never to sit down in a school classroom again in my life. I had almost no money. But I was willing to sacrifice a decade of my life if need be. I believed that if I could figure out how to turn a dollar to two and two dollars to five and continue doing that, I could eventually convert one dollar to a hundred thousand dollars and a million dollars. Even though it might take years. With this mindset, I was not afraid of making mistakes. I was not scared of failing multiple times, and I wasn’t scared of ridicules and rejections from fellow humans, for eight long years of struggling I got all of the pains I mentioned above.
I made several mistakes; lost businesses got ridiculed and rejected and remained brogue for years.
But in 2016, I had my first breakthrough, and things changed for me very fast from then. Now let me ask you what you think is responsible for some people’s ability to endure pains. What do you think is responsible for some people’s commitment. Even in the face of death. Why do you think Napoleon Bonaparte wanted to conquer the world, think Nelson Mandela refused to give in to the enemy after 20 years of imprisonment and think people dare difficult things even though they could lose their lives trying.
What is wholly desperation
Desire strong desire, which I’d love to call desperation, I mean wholly desperation. If you want to defeat poverty, you must have holy desperation. By holy desperation, I suggest you have to be willing to make sacrifices. do complicated things and forget whatever other people think about you.
Wholly desperation doesn’t allow you to lie, cheat, or commit fraud. Entirely misery doesn’t let you hurt other people for your good or vested interest; instead, what wholly desperation means is that you’re willing to put your life on the line dare your dreams and confront your fears to desperation and fear.
I know a few intelligent poor people there are millions of smart individuals all over the world who can’t afford a good life for themselves.
But why is the so? Why are smart people broke, fear?
Many people have dreams that can help humanity and make them rich, but such ideas often come with some risks. Many people know they can do better with their lives than what they’re doing now. But the fear of the unknown .keeps them from living out their calling.
So many people have what they call great ideas but never execute them because of fear.
Fear is by far the greatest enemy of human progress. But there’s a piece of good news, and that is, a drug that cures fear, that medicine is desperation.
I mean holy desperation when your desire for success is stronger than your fear, you’ll dare your dreams no matter what, when your passion for fame freedom is higher than your fear of failure when the spirit of holy desperation possesses you. Your concern is not succeeding; then, you fear failure.
This is what I mean most people focus their lives on what might go wrong. If they try something new or different, I focus my life on what will happen. Suppose I don’t try something new or different. These are two different ways of looking at life. Take, for example, if you have a well-paying job, but you’re not happy because something else is your dream. You have two choices you can either focus on all that might happen if you leave your job to follow your dream or focus on what would happen in the next 30 years when you look back at your life and have lots of regrets.
Most people like to focus on what will happen if they fail don’t focus on what is likely to happen if you make mistakes or fail, instead focus on what will eventually happen in the future.
If you don’t dare your dream now. A personal example of this is when I started in the business world, almost everything was against me, and the best I could have done with my life is to seek a good job.
One having a good job isn’t a bad thing, but I will be the most miserable human even with the highest paying job in the world with one I know about myself.
I love building stuff. I love trying out things I love doing things my way, and a job will never allow me to leave that way, so instead of focusing on what might happen if I fail in business, I focused on what will happen if I didn’t follow my dream.
Larry Ellison said great achievers are driven not so much by the pursuit of success but by the fear of failure. in other words, you should fear what life would look like if you don’t achieve your dream .so much that you don’t worry the mistakes are temporary failures you might have now.
Poverty is powerful; just like Satan, it’s evil, and just like every powerful obstacle, you can’t defeat poverty by merely thinking about crushing it.
You have to be positively ruthless. It would help if you had a strong desire for freedom and wealth. You must be willing to sacrifice everything except your righteousness if you want to defeat poverty.
