Introduction – You Can Be Rich

Do you feel like there’s not enough money to get what you want in life? Do you feel trapped and poorly paid in a job you don’t even like? Do you feel like there’s no chance you can ever be rich and achieve your dream house and car for you and your family? Do you feel like only greedy business tycoons and dishonest politicians can be rich?

Do You Really Want To Be Rich

May I ask you a personal question? Do you want to be rich? Honestly, do you want to be rich? You may say, “who does not want to be rich, even a beggar wants to be rich?” Unfortunately, for most people, they are merely wishing to be rich. When the first obstacle comes along, they give up right away and just accept to live a life of mediocrity. To become rich, the only question you have to face, is whether your dreams are more important than your fears.

You have to accept the fact that you want a better life for you and your family. If you don’t like what your life is in right now, YOU have the choice. YOU have the power to make it happen. YOU can make your life the way you want it to be.

To be rich, you must believe in your heart that you want it so much, you will do anything to be rich. You need to decide to be rich. Once you decide, the responsibility falls on you and there’s no turning back. Your mind will force itself to look for ways to make whatever you decided happen. It will seem like a new world is opening before your eyes, fortunate events happen unexpectedly to deliver what you asked for.

Three Stories of Being Rich

It is an abundant world out there. People are making money left and right. At this very moment, money is just flowing from one hand to the other. Millionaires are being born every second of the day, even in the Philippines.

My good friend Jay Castillo, made his dreams happen – that is to be financially free. A few years ago, he was a busy IT manager working his way up to the corporate ladder. At one point in his life, he was really frustrated spending hours and hours working at the office and going through the frustrations faced by employees. That’s when he decided to do something about it. After reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, he was inspired to learn how to do real-estate investing. He attended seminars, seeked out mentors and build his now very popular blog foreclosurephilippines.com. After only a few years, he is already financially free. He was able to quit his job and work full-time on his real-estate business, that is buying and selling foreclosed properties.

Another good friend of mine, Eden April Alemania-Dayrit is a young lady, who is already a multi-millionaire, having bought and sold more than a dozen houses through rent-to-own schemes. She’s been featured in TV, got invited to share her knowledge by speaking at the Money Summit Seminar, and now keeps herself busy mentoring other people through her Real-Estate Local Coaching Program. And she has not even reached 30! Her goal is to create 1 million millionaires by 2020. Do you think she can make it happen? You bet she’ll make it happen.

Lastly, I would also like to mention my good friend Jomar Hilario. He is widely know as the internet-marketing consultant of Bo Sanchez, who holds his own Internet Marketing Workshops in Manila and Cebu as well as offering his 1-Year Online Mentoring Club. He got started into internet marketing when he helped Bo Sanchez promote the Jars of Clay concert in Manila within 30 days while still working full-time as an IT manager for a multinational consulting firm in the country. When recession struck just a couple of years ago, the multinational company he was working for had to let go of people, Jomar was one of them. Instead of being saddened by the event, he actually celebrated it, because it allowed him to focus on his business full-time.

These are just three people making waves, making something happen in their lives, and getting richer and richer everyday. They are people just like you and me. The only difference is that they decided to be rich and make it happen.

Now, it’s your turn. You too can be rich!
