1.Change your mindset.
Mindset is everything. You are what you believe; believe that no matter how difficult it is, you can still achieve anything you want to. Always have the ‘wealth’ mentality. Be Optimistic. The Bible says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so he is.”
“ The rich believe that they are free to become and achieve anything they want to; the poor believe they are in bondage, restrained or constrained by external forces in becoming and achieving anything. Whichever way, the rich because of his belief and mindset gets richer; the poor also is where he is by reason of his believe and mindset.” – The money book by the catalyst
“The mind is the limit; as long as the mind can envision the fact that you can do something, you can do it, as long as you really believe 100 percent”- Arnold Schwarzenegger
Albert Einstein once said “Your imagination is everything; it is a preview of life coming attractions”. Always set your goals high. Do not be afraid to dream big, neither should you be afraid that it is too old to dream Big. Dreaming big triggers the desire to work harder in order to achieve your goals.
“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney

“Knowledge and more wisdom are more valuable than gold to a rich man.” – The money book by the Catalyst. Learn and develop yourself every day. Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest”.
The day you stop learning is the day you begin to die. Always have the urge and desire to gain more knowledge and improve yourself by developing your potentials.
“The greatest crime is not developing your potential. When you do what you do best, you are helping not only yourself, but the world” – Roger Williams
4.Follow your purpose:
Follow your passion. Never follow trends as against your aspirations, it will destroy you! Pursue what you are passionate about and develop yourself on it. Love what you do and do it well.
“If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you into your purpose” – T.D. Jakes
5.Look around you and solve a problem:
Make an impact wherever you find yourself no matter how little or how trivial it may seem; it surely rewards. “True wealth is not a matter of bank accounts and assets, it is in the values we live and share as well as the people we keep in touch and care – Unknown Author.
6.Increase your network:
“If you are not networking, you are not working” – Denis Waitley. You need to socialize and meet new people. You never know who will be of help to you someday and vice versa. Your network is your net worth. Your contact is what will lead you to your contract. “The richest people in the world look for and build network, everyone else looks for work – Robert Kiyosaki
7.Be hardworking and diligent:
Be ready to pursue your dreams with vigour. Be diligent, hardworking, and persistent and have the spirit of excellence. “Truly rich men know that wealth creation is hard, diligence and consistent work yields result overtime.” – The money book by the Catalyst

9.Manage your time:
Time is money. Time is precious. When you know the value of your time, you will use it wisely. “Rich men understand that time is all they have to exchange for money so they value and invest their time; poor men don’t understand that time is money, so they spend and waste their time.” –The money Book by the Catalyst
