Follow these simple rules and you just may see the results you want

There’s no one-size-fits-all formula on how to be successful and rich, but there are certainly nuggets one can pick up along the way.


Business Insider recently published an article “Things Rich People Never Say,” and we here at Centric found some essential points any aspiring professional or entrepreneur could adopt.


Believe it or not, sometimes success is as simple as believing you can do it. Your entrepreneurial attitude is what truly makes the difference between being ordinary and extraordinary. So for your benefit, here are four things successful and rich people tell themselves that others do not.


1. “I Can Fund My Idea”


Far too many entrepreneurs who believe they have the potential to make millions are unwilling to believe they could ever fund their business or idea. But a true entrepreneur not only is great at curating a business idea, but also financing it. Successful people always believe there’s a way to fund their business idea because they understand that there are other rich people looking for a smart investment. If you believe in what you have to offer, you must also believe you will have the financial backing. It’s not if but when.


2. “I Deserve To Be Wealthy”


The major difference between those in the middle class and the rich class is perception. Wealthy people become wealthy not just from pure and honest hard work, but also from believing they can. Most people who are not wealthy feel that they are undeserving. But for those who do, it’s something that is seen as attainable and well within their reach.


3. “I Will Not Lose”


No great reward comes without risk, which is why being fearless is paramount to a successful career. Being conservative with your money when it comes to investing in your business or career will never reap the benefits you’re looking for. The rich are unphased by risk factors and typically understand that there will likely be losses along the way. Be willing to lose money on occasion, but never lose sight of the fact that the gains are far much more worth it.


4. “I Want To Love What I Do”


Truly successful business people and career professionals are those who love what they do. No one wants to wake up in the morning and dread the work that’s before them. If you’re not happy with what you do for a living, chances are you will never become rich or successful doing it. The disconnect can have major consequences on your pockets. Instead believe that you can do what you love and become rich while doing it. It’s not some utopian idea--it can truly be a reality. So what are you going to do to make that happen?


Success is knocking on the door--go get it!
