Mindset Mastery 37 – The Simple Beauty Of Wealth Creation

Mindset Mastery Ebook By Sean RasmussenMindset Mastery Ebook By Sean RasmussenAs you’ll remember, we’ve been talking about the intimate familiarity human beings have with the word “impossible” and how we apply our own failure consciousness to the potential of all people, everywhere.

“This same perspective is what we apply to human abilities across the board. We refuse to believe what we do not understand. We foolishly believe that our own limitations are the proper measure of human limitations. To be sure, it must be the other person’s diction that is “off,” because it is not the same as our own.

Since the dawn of the modern automobile industry, millions of people have looked at the achievements of Henry Ford, and envy him because of his good fortune, or luck, or genius, or whatever it is that they credit to Ford’s success and subsequent wealth. It may even be that one person in every hundred thousand knows the secret of Ford’s success, and those who do know are too modest, or too reluctant, to discuss it, because of its simplicity. “

Simplicity is the beauty of the ability to Think and Grow Rich. The path to wealth creation is simple, but you have to adjust your attitude towards what is possible and stop thinking that riches are an impossibility just because you’ve yet to secure them.

I will see you back here every Monday and Thursday for the continuation of the Mindset Mastery series.

  1. It is amazing Sean just how much effort we humans will squander to take a perfect, proven strategy as simple as it may be & complicate it to the point where it’s all just to difficult, and consequently give up.


  2. I think a lot of us just don’t want to accept that it really IS that simple. Because that would mean that all our fancy approaches are totally unnecessary and just a waist of time.
    And along the same line of thinking it can’t be that someone else can achieve what we couldn’t. Because that would proof that it was not the task that was impossible, but that we didn’t try hard enough and gave up to early. So again it would reflect our own “unworthiness”. And who wants to see that?
    I think that is a trade of successful people – that they are willing to admit they are not perfect and have made mistakes and to actually learn the lesson. Whereas the unsuccessful take the failure as something outside their control, something they can’t change. And if they can’t – you shouldn’t dare to prove them wrong.
    My goal is to prove myself wrong – prove to myself (and others) that I can do stuff I didn’t think possible for me.

    • Hi Renee,

      Yes I agree that successful people are the ones who can acknowledge their own failings and try to overcome them. Who was it, I think maybe Thomas Edison who rather than saying it was impossible to make an electric light globe took the mindset that he knew well over 900 ways not to make one. And aren’t we all glad he never gave up!

      If I can’t achieve what I was hoping for I really try to look at things from a different perspective and try different things until I manage to succeed in my goal. Sure I sometimes give up but only when I create the possibility of some more tantilising goal.

    • Hi Sean,
      Adjusting ones attitude for some people is impossible because they have no faith in their own abilities, others like me just want to get out there and prove nothing is impossible.

    Hi Sean,
    I think the we have to believe that we can be successful; really confident that we can have what it is we desire. I think it’s as simple as knowing exactly what we want, having a plan that will lead us to success and then working that plan.
    I think when I was starting out, I had a tendency to over-think things and let fear and doubt rule my decisions, only to have someone else take my idea and run with it. I didn’t have a clear vision of what I wanted or how I would achieve it.
    Consequently, I didn’t achieve success because I didn’t believe someone like me could be successful. Thankfully, I am now certain that I am exactly the kind of person who can be successful. I have a vision, a plan and a truck load of confidence.

    • Glad to hear that you have a truck load of confidence Jazz. Now you need to get into the truck, start it up, and commence the journey.

      The longest journey begins with the first step! (old chinese proverb)

  4. Its wonderful to start feeling more and more confident in where we are heading I have not regretted for one moment the steps I started taking on my journey I am now have more confidence in myself and my abilities than I have ever had in my life, and now I know NO ONE can take that from me as I am in control of my own destiny.

  5. For a while I was beginning to think the path I had embarked on wouldn’t achieve my goals. But I stuck at it in the belief that it can’t be that hard.
    I kept hearing about how easy and simple it was but everyone I followed seemed to be making it harder.

    And then the aha moment arrived. It was simple. All I needed was the right guidance from someone who had travelled the path. Now nothing can stop me

  6. If someone wants to challenge the notion of what’s “impossible”, just take a look at all the daily articles online about what humans have achieved in space. That’ll make you think twice.

  7. It is really the simple ideas that make the most money. K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simply Simple…..is one of my quotes that I like to live by. If you try to complete a system, then it will be too hard to work it. If you are after success, then find what works (follow those that are successful), and keep your ego out of the scheme and Viola you are Think and Grow Rich (TGR) = thoughts become true.

  8. The thing we have to remember is to never lose sight of our end goal reinforce the thought of Our Riches every morning and every night, Keep your focus on what it is we want and we will achieve it.

  9. G’day Sean,
    KISS KISS KISS KISS. Wow ! What a thing to say to one’s guru. I’m talking about the principle, not the affectionate meaning, but I’m sure you understood that immediately.
    TAGR is really simple, but most humans NEED to make it complex – WHY ?
    It really comes down to, in the simplest form:-
    1. Visualizing
    2. Gratitude
    3. Taking action
    4. Having absolute faith

    I rest my case, your honour.

    Since I have joined the wealth creation education company I cannot believe how easy it is to create wealth. Why isn’t everybody creating wealth

    1. People have the word impossible ingrained in their head
    2. They let others dictate thier lives – you can’t do that
    3. People want things handed to them on a platter
    4. When people finish school they think they don’t need further education. Boy do they need more than ever. Our school system teaches you how to get a Just Over Broke

    I’m really working hard on this it is worth a lot to me to get it right.

  13. Hi Sean

    This may be a little off track with wealth building but still valid to the subject.
    We humans are experts at complicating things! When things are very simple, we tend to not place much value on them, or we will embellish them or inflate them to give them more perceived value.

    An example of this is some of the spiritual ‘Gurus’ of the world whose philosophies could be taught in one sentence and yet they build huge Ashrams and give long winded discourses and have hundreds if not thousands of followers do special practices for years and years, never being told the actual simple ‘truth’. In time I think the followers forget to even ask as they become so bound by their teachings and disciplines!

    Or people who create courses that skirt around one little ‘secret’ with the whole course plumped out with irrelevant information in order to justify charging thousands and thousands of dollars for it.

    When I was at University, I often had to do electives that had nothing to do with the skills I was learning because I had to achieve a certain number of units to satisfy the Dept of Education.

    One thing I do know and that is ‘simplicity is elegance.’

    Simpler the better I say. The KISS principle we all speak of is a principle we can use in every avenue of our lives and business. I have tried to educate my children not to make their lives unnecessarily complicated and all it does is cause STRESS. The big killer in every ones life is the body not being able to deal with stress. Having a husband with a new kidney and knowing that the worse thing for him is stress, makes this one of the most important areas in our families lives. So many different things in ones life causes stress from lack of funds to children arguing at the dinner table!!!
    Good article to get one thinking.

  15. G’day Sean,
    Just a real quick comment to confirm – I LOVE THE KISS PRINCIPLE !
    This may be my shortest comment yet, as I’ve already commented on this post previously.

    I first heard of K.I.S.S. in college from one of my professors. It was her favorite saying. She told us that we as humans have the worst tendency to take something beautifully simple and complicate the heck out of it, until few people could even make sense out of it anymore. Since then I have tried to always keep things as simple as possible.

    Henry Ford’s V8 engine was very like that. It was simple and is still in use today. The premise behind Think and Grow Rich is the same. You can have wealth beyond your wildest dreams if you let yourself believe. And K.I.S.S.

    Wow and so on point for what I witnessed today; I love being an adult uni student, I see young, vibrant, inspired people who have not been beaten down and rejected by life yet, they feel they can set huge goals and acheive them. Sometimes I wonder if we shouldn’t all be a little more of our 6 yr old selves that still believe in magic and Santa and that we can be Prime Minister or the Captain of the All Blacks if we want! Thanks again Sean- this must take so much of your personal time and I’m grateful! Erika and Clem

    oh I am dusting off my copy of Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich- I need to build another list of things life told me I couldn’t have – I need to be reminded of a few sage bits of wisdom!!
