I Always Knew I Was Going to be Rich

“I always knew I was going to be rich.
I don’t think I ever doubted it for a minute.”

-Warren Buffett-

This is one of my favorite quotes from Warren Buffett. Why? Because it shows the confidence, unwavering belief, and commitment to an idea that he possessed. As you most likely know Warren is now one of the richest people in the world, but it all started in his mind and with his unwavering belief. He knew he’d be rich and it was that simple, there wasn’t anyone who could tell him otherwise. What have you always known?

Unwavering Beliefs
An unwavering belief is what sets apart the “crazy” from the normal. The crazy are the ones who dream, who strive, and who challenge themselves everyday to work towards making their visions a reality. They take the road less traveled, take the leap, and blindly follow their instincts. To those who follow the straight and narrow, they are out of their minds.

Much like a car needs gas to drive down the street, you need an unwavering belief to persist towards your goals and provide fuel for your inner fire. Without this belief the car will swerve off the road and you’ll head in the wrong direction, away from your goals, away from your dreams, and away from your purpose. You’ll get stuck in the traffic jam of life.

What Unwavering Beliefs do you Have?
Can you say with 100% certainty that something will happen in your life? Will you meet your investment goals for the year, will you hit your fitness goals, will you build that successful business, will you follow your dreams, will you buy a one way ticket to change your life?

Many of our biggest obstacles are in our own minds. I’m not stranger to this and deal with it quite often myself. Is this blog good enough? Why would people ever want to read what I have to say? Who am I to build a site about Waikiki? These are just a few questions that occasionally cross my mind. It gets tiring to think like this and shows I need to continue to work on myself, but the best way to continue down the path is to work through it and get back into the zone where I forget about all the what ifs and focus on believing it’s possible.

If you learn to have an unwavering belief you will be able to accomplish your goals and you will be a success at whatever it is you’re shooting for. How do you learn this? By reaffirming everyday that you’re good enough, smart enough, and gosh darn it people like you! (if you can tell me where that quote came from I’ll backlink to you on Friday’s roundup ๐Ÿ™‚ ). It’s not something you’re going to learn by simply reading this post, but by each day stepping towards your goals, reaffirming your beliefs, and taking action. Each step will concrete your belief just a little bit more as it becomes a reality. If you need someone to tell you you’re good enough, shoot me an email.

We’re all the same really, but those of us who have unwavering beliefs will win, because we constantly persist towards our goals as we believe they are possible. The world is just waiting for you to stand up and follow your unwavering beliefs. Take a lesson from Warren, and simply know that something will happen in your life.

My Unwavering Beliefs
I know this site will be successful, I know I’ll be a published shark photographer, I know I’ll be a performing pianist, and I know you can accomplish your dreams. These are some of my unwavering beliefs.

What have you always known? What are your unwavering beliefs?

Please take a moment to reaffirm your beliefs by physically writing them out and sharing them below.

Hey Ryan,
I’ve read this post over and over. this should be the 6 time i’m reading the post. So, today i decided to leave a note ๐Ÿ™‚
For me, i am who i know i am. I know i am rich and wealthy, i presently have all i need, thanks to my mindset. The greatest attractive force on earth is the force generated by our thoughts. And with this mindset, i don’t know what could make me average. Focus and determination is my thing ๐Ÿ™‚

What I find the most challenging is to have unwavering beliefs but also create a backup plan. I believe in the universal effect of positive thoughts and energy. But Iโ€™m also programmed to think, โ€œwhat ifโ€.

A great example is my unemployment hearing. I knew in my heart that I would win, but created a backup plan, just in case. Youโ€™re right, we can be our own enemy.

Allow me add a couple other quotes that I like:

1. “Life is too short to be small.” – Benjamin Disraeli

2. โ€œThe reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable man persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.โ€ โ€“ George Bernard Shaw, Maxims for Revolutionists.

I love this quote, would I be able to use it on my blog and link your name back to here? Just love it!

You know I just recently came across my belief.
I know without a doubt that I am going to have a successful online business, surrounded by creative, imaginative, witty people, that want to build a great fun loving site, where everyone is embraced for who they are ๐Ÿ™‚

Old? Buffett’s only like 60-65 right?

Hi Ryan,

I wish I could say that my belief in myself was unwavering, but it has been through some pretty tough challenges over the years! I find that the best way to keep this belief is to read/hear motivational stuff like this. A great source for such inspirational writing is http://theartofmanliness.com (despite the name there are many posts of use to both men and women).

i believe that i have been given many gifts in life and will continue to get many more that are going to be even more grand. the main reason i will continue to get gifts is my willingness to share with friend, family and complete strangers. this is all for the greater good.

I have always had the same confidence in myself. It’s like I know it will happen because I will make it happen. Not only that but, ever since I was little most people used to tell me, “Your gonna be rich one day” because of my work habits. I try not to be over-confident though because it can steer you in the wrong direction. If you can dream it, you can achieve it, don’t forget to put in a little bit of effort. Very interesting post.

I read this and stopped dead in my tracks: An unwavering belief is what sets apart the โ€œcrazyโ€ from the normal. The crazy are the ones who dream, who strive, and who challenge themselves everyday to work towards making their visions a reality. They take the road less traveled, take the leap, and blindly follow their instincts. To those who follow the straight and narrow, they are out of their minds.

Wow, do we know each other? lol We’re made of the same cloth my friend!

The Millionaire Next Door

Wanna be rich? spend less, save more (invest)

Everyone believes and promises themselves that they are going to be rich in some point of their life but have no idea what it really takes? What is the next step into really becoming successful when your accomplishing nothing?
