Ww, barriers can rule and ruin your life. Almost every time I talk to someone about their goals and dreams, they mention some sort of barrier in the way of achieving them.
- can’t take that course because I have no money. Well, if you are sure the course would lead to a better way of life and a steady income…. you can’t afford not to take the course. Get a LOAN!
- I can’t start a business because I have no money. (see above)
- I can’t invest in real estate because I don’t want to deal with tennants, and expenses, and taxes, and BLAH BLAH BLAH!
- I don’t want to make more money because I’ll have to pay more taxes. I say – You’re stupid! You will still pocket more money!
I don’t recall where I learned this, Kyosaki I suppose. One of his cardinal suggestions is to stop saying “I can’t” or “but” or “it won’t work” or “it’s impossible”. Once you put up a barrier like this, your brain immediately stops thinking. It gives up. You rott away in a boring job, never take a risk, and you will regret it. If you instead say: “This looks difficult, I wonder how I can make this work” or “maybe”, you are on your way to solving the problem instead of just complaining about the potential problems.
So. STOP SAYING I CAN’T and start doing something!
