Many times I’m told by people that they want to build wealth and they want a better life and they know they need to do something about it, but they want to wait. Hold on….you want it, you know it’s better, and you know you must do it, but you want to wait? How does that make sense? Oddly enough, in this person’s mind, they are making sense of this kind of statements. We’ve all done it before. Today I want to tell you how to handle this mindset so that you don’t make the mistake of waiting to build wealth.

Let’s establish this first. Wealth is abundance in all areas of life. It means that you can live your life treating money like oxygen. It means complete freedom. That should be the #1 thing you want. So let me ask you, what else would even make it worth it to wait?

Here’s the thing. When you say this you’re being negative. Not like you’re being mean or unfriendly. You’re being negative. The 6th definition for negative is: lacking in constructiveness, helpfulness, optimism, cooperativeness, or the like. How do I know? Because you’re looking at your problems instead of your solutions. Saying you want to wait for means that you are not being constructive towards your goal towards wealth. It means you’re not helping yourself to build wealth. It means you aren’t being optimistic about it. It means you aren’t cooperating with what is necessary for you to build wealth. A negative mind won’t make a positive decision. If you really want to make it happen you must first quit being negative.

Next, you need to identify what it is that’s causing you to say you would rather wait to achieve your ultimate goal than have it today. Is it that you really don’t think it’s possible? (See above point about being negative). Is it that you don’t know how? Not knowing how and not trying to know how are two different things. (Again see the point about being negative). Is it money? Are you really going to let money stop you from having money? That doesn’t even make sense. But here’s the thing. If you don’t identify the thing that’s holding you back, it will keep holding you back.

Let’s say you do wait. What’s the best case scenario? Do you have a little less debt? Your kids are older and you have different problems, but problems all the same? Your house is a little more paid off but you still have to make the payment? Are you older? Do you have less motivation? What is this magic payoff you think is going to happen by you waiting to do something that’s good for you?

Here’s what it looks like when someone waits. They really are just trying to get rid of having to make a decision because they’re afraid of making a mistake. They haven’t realized that by making the decision to wait, they have indeed made both a decision and a mistake. They go into denial as to not confront it and occupy their mind with distractions. So you get busy with made up games you’ve come up with and made over-important to justify doing them so you can really make sense of the procrastination and mistake you just subjected yourself to. You know you should have done it and it was wrong not to so you get overly defensive and snap at anyone who brings it up to you. You continue to progress down this slippery slope to the point that you now make other people wrong when you see them doing the very thing you said you needed to wait on. How else could you make sense of them doing it, they didn’t wait. Now you are old, calloused, and broke. Do you really want to go down that route? I don’t want that for you and you don’t want that for yourself.
