MENTALITY OF THE RICH – PLANTING APPLE ORCHARDS.

In this post, I want to share with you all, the mentality of RICH People, and how nature has taught them to be even richer!  Please note that the Rich and Poor people in this context refer to their mindset, not wealth.

Let’s first take a look at an apple tree. There might be five hundred apples on the tree, but each apple has just ten seeds. That’s a lot of seeds! We might ask, “Why would you need so many seeds to grow just a few more apple trees?”

Well, Nature has something to teach us here. It’s telling us in a subtle way that, “Not all seeds grow. In life, most seeds never grow. So if you really want to make something happen, you had better do more than once.” In fact, more than once. You have to keep doing repeatedly.

For example this would mean attending more than twenty interviews to get one job. This would also mean interviewing forty or more people to find one good employee. This would also mean that you would need to talk to one hundred people to sell one house, one bottle of health supplement, one insurance policy or even a business idea! And you might meet a hundred acquaintances just to find one special friend!

So when we understand the “Law of the Seeds”, (some people call it the Law of Averages) we will not get so disappointed. We stop feeling like victims. We learn how to deal with things that happen to us. You see, the laws of nature should not be taken personally. We just need to understand them better and to and work with them. We don’t need to find out specifically why the sun sets in the West, and how dogs bark. We just accept things as they are, and move on.

How Poor People Behave:

So when things are beyond your control, here’s something that Poor People would react almost immediately:

You decide how you think the world SHOULD be. You make rules for how everyone SHOULD behave. Friends SHOULD return favours. People SHOULD appreciate you. Planes SHOULD arrive on time. Everyone SHOULD be honest. Your best friend SHOULD remember your birthday.

These expectations may sound reasonable. But often, these things won’t happen! So you end up frustrated and disappointed. You feel sorry for yourself and wallow in self pity.

How Rich People Behave:

Now, allow me to show you how Rich People would react:

When something unexpected occurs, you exclaimed, “That’s good!” You proceed to shift your mindset and attitude. When it rains just before your golf game, you exclaimed, “That’s good! I can stay home and play with my kids!” When your boss throws back the project at your face, you exclaimed, “That’s good! Now I can come up with an even better one!”

When you get stuck in the traffic, you exclaimed, “That’s good! I can now listen to good music on the radio.” When your wife takes too long to put on her make up just before you both go out on a date, you exclaimed, “That’s good! She wants to look pretty so as to match the handsome me!” When the 49th person rejects your sale, you exclaimed, “That’s good! Let me find the next one who will buy my product!”

You must understand that Rich people fail more often. And they continue to plant more seeds and have a good mindset. They never say die and continue to push on. To them, there are no failures, only feedback, so shifting of your mindset and attitude can bring wonders. If you think that you are bigger than the problem, then the problem becomes smaller and you can overcome all problems.

So shout out to the world, “THAT’S GOOD!!!”

cheers,
Mark
