There’s a lot of myths about wealth and wealth acquisition. And some of them include that you can get rich by getting lucky. Or that it takes connections to open the doors to money. Neither  of these is true.

A good connection, obviously, can help if you’re the right person, in the right place, at the right time, with the right thing, saying the right thing, and you’re also available, and you’re trusted. Yes, then a connection can help.

This is a major feature and benefit of a well-chosen MasterMind. Nevertheless, if you depend on fortune or connections, but don’t tend to making yourself a value-contributor, then any accidental, uncontrollable benefit you get will quickly pass you by.

Another myth is that you have to have money to make money. You hear the theme, “It takes money to make money.” Sure, money is always nice. But you can hear the ring of experience in the saying, “The best way to make a small fortune is to start with a large one.” Because, so often, when we’re going into a new venture, you’re going to have some discoveries along the way, and, quite frankly, the less you have at risk, the less you can possibly lose. They say it takes money to make money, but money is not required.

Trust me if you don’t already know thisif you have a sound, profitable idea, getting the money is easy.

And the darling myth made especially for our times is that you’ve got to be high tech to really make the big money. After all, we can certainly see it’s a very high tech world. Bill Gates, the richest man in the world, made it with the Microsoft computer operating system. Steve Jobs of Apple computers, ipods, ipads, iphones, etc, was no shabby billionaire, either. But it doesn’t take high tech to make money.

Colonel Sanders did it with nothing but a chicken recipe. A chicken recipe! What is more common in the south than chicken?! He’s from Kentucky. He called his stores Kentucky Fried Chicken. Billion$ there. Who would’ve dreamed?

Ray Kroc did it with an invention that wasn’t even his own. It was the McDonald brothers’ fast-serve hamburger system. He walked in and said, “Wow! You’ve got a good thing going here, you ought to franchise this.” They were too busy flipping hamburgers to want another task, so he asked if they’d sell the rights to their system to him. Hamburgers. Hamburgers! What can be more common than a hamburger?! More billion$ here.

Funny how all the pop culture myths are erroneous, isn’t it?

Sustained wealth, as sustained excellence in any field, does not come from the capricious favors of luck, connections, or money, nor must you make your money in a high-tech field.

Wealth is created from within the individual. That's wealth of every kind – spiritual, intellectual, emotional, and fisical. Every person who’s ever been truly successful says it; perhaps it’s time to listen to them. It’s no myth that wealth is created with the conscious, intentful, assured, focused direction of your sustained passionate energies.
