Ask a group of people why they aren’t rich and chances are many will say something like,“Well, I’m not a movie star and I’m not in the NBA.” Do only celebrities make money? Why is the association of wealth so strongly tied to celebrity-dom? It is because our culture—with its ubiquitous fascination for the glossy entertainment and pro sports world—perpetuates this fallacy on a daily basis. One doesn’t have to go far to be hypnotized by this lie; celebrity news magazines, talkentertainment.com and other the media in general keeps “celebrityd-dom” alive. The truth is that celebrities’ bank accounts pale in comparison to the richest people in the world. And, I wouldn’t call many celebrities “rich” if they are unhappy, unsatisfied, and constant tabloid gossip for their unscrupulous acts.
The number one reason most people don’t get what they want is that they don’t know what they want. At the same time, they don’t know what they’re passionate about. So they haven’t a clue what they are supposed to be doing. Now is the time to really conquer this lie that runs too deep in our consciousness and shoves us off course from the roads we should be taking.
