Rich Dad, Poor Dad – you’ve read the book right? Or how about Think and Grow Rich? Or even Secrets of the Millionaire Mind – all great books that explain very clearly why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.All three books revolve around a single principle of life that men have known for thousands of years
“As a man thinks in his heart, so is he”.
Rich people are rich because they think and therefore feel, talk and act in ways that are consistent with wealth building. Poor people are poor because although desiring riches, they think in ways that are sabotage their own efforts towards wealth building.
Thus a man with incredible talent, rare opportunity, good looks and everything else without a wealth mindset, will continue to fail. To justify his failure, he will find someone or something to blame – ‘dad never loved me’ my pastor lied to me, i don’t have the capital, the economy is bad, the boss doesn’t like me – etc
What’s true for a man, is true for a family, an organization, a community and even a whole nation – even Zimbabwe.
I like what the president has been emphasizing lately…”Zimbabweans can solve Zimbabwe’s problems”. I believe that’s true – but only if we recognize ourselves are both the cure and the problem. For as long as Zimbabweans seek to justify failure by blaming external forces, we will not see any lasting change – if any.
What Zimbabwe needs more than any political or financial solution is a renewed way of thinking. We need to think and grow rich. This is not just for the political leaders, it’s for everyone. Stop blaming Mugabe and Tsvangirai for everything that goes wrong with your business or finances – don’t place your destiny in the hands of any man.
Zimbabwe has more than enough natural resources to be a mini super power. What we really lack is a collective mind that thinks rich. We we get that, ‘ll see all kinds of miracles happening to cause success and progress for the whole nation.
