If you want to be wealthy, start hanging out with millionaires
Thought is the original source of all wealth, all success, all material gain, all great discoveries and inventions, and of all achievement.
— Claude M. Bristol
We have passed from a world based on material limitations into a world that is determined by mental concept. We have moved from the age things into the” Psychozoic Age,”the age of the mind. Wealth and opportunities are contained more in the person you are and the way you think than in the assets you have acquired in life so far. You future lies more in your ability to apply your mind and intelligence to your work and your life than it does in your current job or situation.
Because health, wealth, and happiness are essentially mental, there are very few limits on how much of them you can acquire for yourself. In this chapter, and in subsequent chapters, you will learn many of the simple, practical, proven methods, techniques and strategies used by high-achieving men and women in every field to accomplish far more than they, or the people around them, ever dreamed possible. You will learn how to break the bonds of limited, conventional thinking, expanding your desire and ambitions so dramatically that you will be able accomplish any goal that you could ever set for yourself.
Three major forces
There are three major forces reverberating through our world today, transforming everything they touch and creative minority. These there forces are the incredible growth in information, technology, and competition.
Information and knowledge explosion
The information revolution, combined with the speed of computerized information processing, the internet, and wireless communications, is enabling knowledge in every field to double every two or three years. Fully 90 percent of all the thinkers, inventors, engineers scientists, writers, entrepreneurs, and creators of all kinds who ever existed are living and working today. The results of their efforts are becoming almost instantaneously available to each other, thereby doubling and tripling their outputs.
The explosion in technology and high-speed computers is literally breathtaking. Today, you can e-mail a message around the world to dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of people simultaneously, in a matter of seconds, at a cost of pennies.
The world wide web gives you access to tens of millions of other internet users, as well as to the accumulated knowledge stored in more than 50,000 libraries and research institutes. Instantaneous transmission of data enable the money markets to move a trillion dollars per day, sometimes in seconds, making it impossible for countries to control their currencies, much less their economies.
In the twenty-first century, you will own a laptop computer with a microchip that can process one billion commands per second. It will have a long-life battery and a built-in cellular telephone, connected to cells and satellites that will enable you to communicate instantaneously with almost anyone, almost anywhere in the world. You will have your own personal telephone number that will enable anyone in the world, anywhere, to telephone you, wherever you are, whether or not they even know what county you are in. And this telephone technology will probably fit on your wrist like a large digital watch does today.
