More money, more money, more money!
Are you someone who thinks that if you just had more money all (or most) of your problems would be solved?
I am sure you have heard the stories of the thousands of individuals who have won millions of dollars via the lottery only to end up broke in a few years or perhaps, you can think of entertainers or professional athletes who make millions of dollars per year but find that it is not enough to make their ends meet.
How can this be?
When, I was a little girl, around 7 or 8, I remember my cousins and I standing in my grandparents’ yard playing a game in which we would ask each other, if you had a million dollars what would you do with it? To us a million dollars was so much money. A million dollars would make life so much sweeter.
But the fact of the matter is that had we been given a million dollars, we may have ended up just like the lottery winners, the professional athletes, and the entertainers who acquired money without developing their minds to deal with wealth.
And, this is the premise of the book Wealth Mentality: Program Yourself to Get and Keep the Wealth You Want by Mrs. Sherrin Ross Ingram. In Wealth Mentality, Sherrin makes it clear that reaching true wealth requires far more than simply making a lot of money. She explains that “it requires that you establish a way of thinking that promotes and preserves true wealth before looking for ways to earn more money, make better investments, and buy better things.”
You may be wondering, well how in the world do I do that? I would love to develop that kind of thinking.
Listen to today’s show.
By the end of it that question will be answered and you will walk away with insight into the faster and easier way to achieve true wealth.
Sherrin, as America’s Leading Power Strategist, you help entrepreneurially-minded professionals get strategic about defining their markets and unique positioning, raising their expert status and staying top of mind with clients and prospects. Tell us about a time when you developed a new system or procedure for a client that totally transformed his/her career or their business.
Sherrin, in your introduction you make this statement, “People want to be rich.” You point out that this desire isn’t “limited to a specific gender, race, social or economic background, or any other characteristic.” What exactly is the difference between being rich and being wealthy?
Now, Sherrin, somebody listening right now is still probably thinking, “More money is the answer to my financial troubles.” What would you say to that person?
The title of your book is Wealth Mentality: Program Yourself to Get and Keep the Wealth You Want. Black Enterprise has called you and they want to do a new segment on their show each Sunday that focuses on people who possess a wealth mentality. Who would be the first person that you would showcase and why?
Sherrin, I love the fact that you blatantly ask “Why aren’t YOU wealthy already? in chapter three. You pinpoint 8 underlying reasons. What are the three most prevalent reasons most people have not acquired wealth?
On page 43, you state, “Two of the most important parts of creating a Wealth Mentality are thoughts and beliefs.” Sherrin, why do we think the way that we do and what specific steps can we take to develop thoughts and beliefs that exemplify a wealth mentality?
One of the many interesting concepts you teach is that “a wealth mentality thinks gooses.” How do we know when we have elevated to the level of “thinking gooses?”
I love this quote from page 61: In most cases, those who have earned their way to wealth found work that exploits their full potential and gives them the opportunity to express the best that is within them. They’re motivated by something larger than making a living. They love what they do. I believe that the listeners of this show are entrepreneurs who want this to be their story. As we close, please give them 3 action items that will help them achieve wealth easier and faster in the remaining 11 months of this year.
Sherrin, who are your ideal clients and what kinds of exciting products and services do you have available for them in 2013?
