Me and my house, we will prosper

Dear Member

I am so, so tired of hearing the words “Our poor people….” I feel that this mentality is keeping some people poor & leading some to falsely believe that someone out there will take care of all their needs. I’m old enough to know there is nothing for mahhala. If it is free, it is usually low quality and comes with strings attached. I trust you know you deserve better than freebees. Next time you hear someone say “Our poor people…declare that as for you and your family, you will not only not be poor, but you will actually prosper and your prosperity will overflow to a point that you begin to share it with others. I believe that prosperity is available to all of us but there are certain principles that we have to live by to ensure that we improve our chances at prosperity. Below are just some of them

1. Make up your mind that you will not just survive but you will prosper.

2. Stop saying negative things about yourself e.g. some people tell me that they are so heavily indebted they feel they will be in debt for life. Speak positive things about your life

3. Learn as much as you can about money: knowledge is not just power but it is actually wealth. Just knowing about how to buy shares will make a difference between whether you will be wealthy or not. The last chapter in the book From Debt to Riches has caused many people to start buying shares monthly. Remember, leaders read. You must lead yourself and your family to financial prosperity

4. Have financial discipline. Stop saying “ I am bad with money

5. Draw a plan to be rich; it will not happen by chance. Stop being shy about wanting to be rich. If you are money shy, the money will be shy of you too. Think of how many people you could help if you had the financial means to do so. There are many people out there who need shelter, food, school fees, etc… Hope this will help you lose your inhibitions about making money

6. Work your plan

7. Get out of unnecessary debt or decide you will not get into unnecessary debt

8. Invest in shares

9. Know how to protect the money you have worked hard for

10. Insure the things you cannot afford to lose

11. Know that if it is to be, it is up to you. No one out there is going to do it for you, you must do it for yourself

12. Never steal money or commit fraud. Thieves always end up poorer
