This applies to everything else you care about in life too, by the way

This is going to be controversial. There are some valid counterarguments to be made — and we’ll get to those — but if you really want to become wealthy, it all starts with a decision that you have to make.

The same applies for anything else you could possibly attempt in your life, but I’m just using money because it’s easy to quantify and it’s a source of anxiety for many, many people:

You must make the fundamental decision to become wealthy at any cost.

This is basic. This is foundational. This is what you have to do first, before you start talking about “multiple streams of income” or global financial markets, or asset allocation, or any of that stuff.

You have to make a decision not to be less than you could be.

You have to make a promise to yourself that you will never, ever break under any circumstances. And you have to find a way.

You have to find a way, or you’ll find an excuse.

Now, let me get this out of the way first before you think I’m just some “power of positive thinking” guy with a bunch of easy answers and some new online course for you to buy to get rich.

No, no, and HELL no.

All I am is a person, dedicated to success and achievement, who knows the true power of the human mind, and the life-altering power of a firm decision.

Does making this decision guarantee that you’ll eventually become wealthy (or achieve some other goal that’s important to you)?

No, of course not. I would hate myself if I told you that was true. That you can just “ask the universe” for something and it’ll be “given” to you. Plenty of people have made a “firm decision to get rich” who will die broke and penniless.

So it’s not the whole answer, by any means. But you don’t stand a chance in hell of achieving your goals if you don’t make such a decision:
