Saya tertarik dengan judul sebuah buku bertajuk The 8 Habits of the Happy Millionaire yang ditulis oleh Bo Sanchez yang saya kira amat menarik.
Saya belum berkesempatan membaca buku ini lagi. Tetapi saya telah temui perkongsian artikel daripada salah seorang peserta seminar beliau yang telah menulis tentang 8 Tabiat Jutawan Gembira ini.
Di bawah merupakan hasil tulisan peserta tersebut di dalam Bahasa Inggeris.
The seminar was held in AFP Theater in Camp Aguinaldo from 8:00 AM to 12:00 NN. It started with songs of praise to God that filled the venue with calmness and positivity. Bro Bo made us recite the Declaration of Wealth before we go to the discussion of the habits. We then proceed with the 8 habits and here they are:
Habit 1: Define Your Wealth
Habit 2: Find Your Emotional Why
Habit 3: Create Your Wealth Beliefs
Habit 4: Be Consistently Aggressive
Habit 5: Create Money Machines
Habit 6: Control Your Cash
Habit 7: Stick To Your Game
Habit 8: Pass On Your Wealth
The first habit lets you ask, think hard and realize what your wealth really is.
Bro Bo made us define our wealth. It made me think what really matters to me and I know it’s not money but my loved ones and of course, my ultimate boss, God.
After defining your wealth, he digs in to your deepest frustrations, trials and dreams. He told stories of failure and how those failures brought out the millionaires/billionaires in him and other successful entrepreneurs he knows. Those failures became their emotional why and I found mine to be my painful experiences, ongoing trials and ultimate dreams.
After the two habits, he then attacked our beliefs..our perception and actions towards wealth with the 3rd and 4th habits.
He mentioned habits that we should get rid off like the Haciendero Complex, Bahala Na Attitude, Lotto Culture and Manana Habit and the mindset that money is hard to earn or to get.
Instead, we should always think that “Money is Everywhere” and God gave us the capacity to produce wealth. We should be aggressive to become wealthy. Every one of us is interested to become wealthy. But more than being interested, it’s the commitment that matters. How committed are we in getting wealthy? A question I asked myself after the discussion of this habit.
The fifth, sixth and seventh habit give idea on where to start your road to being a millionaire.
Successful people shared their stories. Steve Tamayo, owner of Tamayo’s Catering Services and Restaurants, impart his inspiring life experience. Maves Angeles and Ivy Sepe, both happy missionary millionaires, also gave their pieces. These three people have a common denominator – they came from poor family but that didn’t stop them from creating money machines that made them happy millionaires.
Bro Bo mentioned 2 kinds of money machines – manual and automatic.
What we should aim is the automatic money machine. Something that gives you income even if you are not working for it anymore. Paper assets is one of them. Bonds, mutual funds or the stock market ares samples of money machines. Apart from creating money machines, we should also learn to control our cash. Spend 70 % and invest 30% of your income and STOP BORROWING! Yeah, I’m shouting.
Also, to attain success, we should stick to our game. Know where you are very good at, forget your weaknesses and do something that you really love. That’s my take home in this habit.
Last, but not the least, pass on your wealth.
Share the blessings because when we die, we cannot bring anything that we had on Earth. We die broke! So while we can – give. While we are alive – share.
At the end of the seminar, tears were falling down my face while singing worship songs. I felt all the trials and pains but I thank God I have all of those because I had motivation, I had reasons to pursue my dreams.
