Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you do not have, you will never, ever have enough. Oprah Winfrey

What is a reallionaire? My definition of a reallionaire is someone that discovers their purpose, takes advantage and uses their many gifts, builds a life they love with good relationships, family and social connections. How do we learn to believe in ourselves? How do we conduct our life so if we get what we are aiming for we are happy with it? According to Jack Canfield scientists used to believe that humans responded to information flowing into our brain from the outside world. Now we believe that instead, we respond to what the brain – based on previous experience – expects to happen next. Do we have a reputation with ourselves and is this our self-esteem?

What if our brains are so powerful it can deliver literally everything that we want through the power of positive expectation? How do we build positive expectations? Do many of us spend our lives expecting the worst to happen?

Do we build our life in little steps? Do some people change overnight, but most of us take baby steps toward what we want? Do we eat “our elephant” one bite at a time, build our lives one decision, and one habit at a time?

Do we need to build a track record with ourselves? If we have kept our bargains with ourselves in the past do we learn to trust ourselves? If we don’t make grandiose statements, but instead make small daily decisions we do keep, do we put ourselves on the path to where we want to go?

Just for today can we do almost anything? Tomorrow we can start again and do more. By taking life one day at a time do we build something we can be proud of? Can’t we always take the detour ahead if it seems better than the road we are on?

Having enough money has to be hand in hand with living in a way that you’re not being a slave to your possessions. Patton Oswalt

Do we tell ourselves what we want to happen in our lives, but we don’t believe and trust what we are telling ourselves is true? If we need to find statements we believe is one of the things we can do, is ask ourselves questions instead of using affirmations. When we tell ourselves things we know aren’t true, we are lying to ourselves, and we wonder why it doesn’t work.

We tell ourselves “I am rich, I am rich, I am rich,” as we look in the mirror feeling poor. If we know we aren’t rich, how does our mind react? What if we asked ourselves? “Why am I rich?” If we are rich in health, love, family, and we have enough to live every day buying what we need and sometimes what we want, isn’t that a rich life?

Does giving to someone who has less than ourselves make us feel rich? Can we take actions to make ourselves healthy, fit, a great mom, wife, business person, author, employee, etc?  

If one of the things our mind does is answer our questions then is asking better questions the key to a better life?

If we want something there are many people who have already achieved it. Do we need to do what they did? When we ask questions we may find out we aren’t willing to do what they did. But, what are we willing to do?

I was listening to a podcast by Gary Vaynerchuk yesterday he was saying so many people want to start a business and be the next greatest thing. Starting a business, and being able to replace the job we have isn’t that a good start? Isn’t building a great life for ourselves and our family the goal?

Can we be happy enough, well-off enough, healthy enough, fit enough, good enough parents, good enough spouses, good enough citizens, and build a well-rounded life?

Does that seem like we’ve set our sights too low? Are only grandiose dreams worth pursuing? What if instead of wanting to be millionaires, we want to be reallionaires, we want to love the life we have? What if we become rich from the inside out?

True freedom is much more than having enough income and time to do what you want. Tim Ferriss

You are the average of the 5 people you associate with most. You don’t need to get much right to be and feel successful. Just form habits around 1-2 strengths. Tim Ferriss

Wealth is having enough. That means to some people, no matter how much they have, they can’t really be wealthy because they want more than they’ve got. Warren Buffett
