Question Of The Day: What Is Stopping You From Building Wealth? Is It An Innie Or An Outie?

If I were to ask you what’s stopping you from becoming wealthy, what would your answer be?

Would it be an “inner” answer or an “outer” answer?


Outer answers typically describe constraints that are outside of someone’s control.

Such as…

The environment they were born into.

The government.


The economy.

The amount of lucky breaks they’ve received.

The Republicans.

The Democrats.

The Independents.

The maximum salary their company pays for someone in their position.

The weather.

A perceived lack of upward mobility.

All these types of answers have one thing in common…

…nobody can personally claim responsibility for any of them.

Which is why they are the pet excuses of the mediocre.

You see, it’s much easier for the mediocre to blame something out of their control, an invented scapegoat, than it is to take responsibility for their own lives.

George Shaw said it best – “Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.”

But here’s the problem – when a person blames others or other things for their own lack of success, they give up their power to change. They give up the power to make their lives better.

Over time, this has severe consequences. It has a devastating effect on their mind. When you know you have failed to take responsibility for something that you should, it’ll begin to bother you, to eat at you, little by little. Pretty soon, you’ll feel very small inside.

That may sound like an exaggeration, but it’s the truth. Taking responsibility for our own actions makes life work better. Remember, self-respect is the worth or value you place on your own life. Therefore, one of the consequences of continually failing to accept personal responsibility is that you eventually view your life as having little to no real value. Is it any wonder that the mediocre majority are so miserable?

A better answer to the question of what’s stopping you from becoming wealthy is an “inner” answer.

Something like…

A lack of knowledge of how to build wealth.

Not cultivating successful money habits.

Not possessing a positive attitude.

Not thinking big enough.

Not deciding to become rich.

A flawed sense of identity.

Notice how these answers have nothing to do with something or somebody outside of you? They are all things within your control.

Want to know something else?

These are indeed the only things that can stop a person from becoming wealthy. All that crap listed above under “outer” answers is just that – crap.

We live in extraordinary times. More millionaires are being created than ever before and at pace never seen in recorded history. And less you think these new millionaires are inheriting wealth, the vast majority of new millionaires came from absolutely nothing. They built their way to wealth.

How is that possible, with all those “outer” constraints mentioned earlier, that so many are achieving financial success? Why hasn’t the economy, government, taxes, etc… stopped them?

It’s because the men and women achieving millionaire status made a choice. They made a choice to reject the philosophies of “outer” thinking that limit and constrain a person. They chose to disassociate with the toxic thinking of the masses. They liberated themselves from financial struggle by saying those magical words that start every person’s journey to wealth…

I am responsible.

You see, those are gateway words. They literally open doors that lead to financial enlightenment.

Once a person hold themselves responsible, they also start taking responsibility of their education, habits and choices related to money. These are very keys to financial success.

And when a person has the keys to financial success, beware. Because the world changes for that person.

It becomes smaller.  It no longer looks daunting and something to shirk away from.It becomes tamable. It can be conquered.

Emerson said it best – “The world makes way for the man who knows where he is going”. ― Ralph Waldo Emerson


Because when a person takes responsibility for their own financial success they learn this most valuable lesson…

Nothing. Absolutely nothing in this world can stop you from becoming wealthy.

Friends, if you’re coming to this blog for the first time I hope it’s because your ready for your life to have value. To have more meaning. I hope it’s because you’re tired of struggling. Most of all, I hope you’re realizing there must be a better way.

There is!

Money is not the end. It’s a means to an end. It provides freedom to live your life’s purpose, which is immensely fulfilling in life.

If you’d like to have that feeling every day, there’s only one thing to do – take responsibility for becoming wealthy. Own your life choices. Own your education about money. Own your decisions. Take responsibility for gaining the financially free life…and it will be yours. Because nothing can stop a person whose has taken responsibility to change their life.

Be free. Nothing else is worth it.
