Note: This is my personal aha from reading the book, The One Minute Millionaire – The Enlightened Way to Wealth written by Mark Victor Hansen and Robert G. Allen. Feel free to check out the previous aha blog post tagged under aha’s or start from here. Whatever works for you.
Aha Number 8: You are your wealth
This chapter was short and very interesting. When we typically think about wealth it includes assets and liabilities and it reflects possessions. But there are things in our life that are our assets that are not visible to the eye but they are there.
What are some invisible assets?
- Courage, perseverance, creativity, commitment, knowledge and relationships to name a few
Without some of these invisible assets it is near impossible to have “enlightened” wealth. There are also invisible liabilities that linger around as well. They might include jealousy, anger, laziness and fear. So it is important that we increase our invisible assets so that the liabilities don’t take over. The authors suggest that if you have a good idea and the commitment to do it as well as key contacts who possess the resources you need you are on your way to enlightened wealth.
While this chapter was super short it makes a lot of sense that we have these internal assets that we often take for granted. This is a good reminder to remember these wonderful assets as we go forth in our days.
