Millionaire Mindset series 13: Sell Products, Don’t Sell Your Time

Most people have been conditioned their entire lives to go to school, get a degree, get a job, and then do the whole 9 to 5 thing for 30-40 years. That plan pre-supposes that you are selling your time, the most valuable and precious thing you have.

To deliver more value and use more leverage, you need to sell products. When you sell your time (which is limited), your earnings are limited. When you sell products, you are no longer exchanging time for money. Your earning potential becomes uncapped.

The primary concern of the poor is survival and security instead of creating wealth and abundance. The goal of truly rich people is to have massive wealth and abundance. Not just some money, but lots of money. On the other hand, the poor desire to have enough to pay the bills and on pay them on time would be a miracle.  Again, let me remind you that when your intention is to have enough to pay the bills, that’s exactly how much you’ll get—just enough to pay the bills and not a dime more.

Middle-class people at least go a step further, too bad it’s a tiny step. Their big goal in life also happens to be their favorite word in the whole wide world. They just want to be “comfortable.” I hate to break the news to you, but there’s a huge difference between being comfortable and being rich. It boils down to this; if your goal is to be comfortable, chances are you’ll never get rich. But if your goal is to be rich, chances are you’ll end up mighty comfortable.

“If you shoot for the stars, you’ll at least hit the moon.” Poor people don’t even shoot for the ceiling in their house, and then they wonder why they’re not successful. Well, they just found out. You get what you truly intend to get. If you want to get rich, your goal has to be rich. Not to have enough to pay the bills  and not just to have enough to be comfortable. Rich means rich!

One of the greatest forms of modern day slavery is the ‘pay check’. Billions of people all over the world are enslaved by this one master. People lose themselves simply to get by. They weigh the cost of pursuing their dreams to the comfort of their monthly pay and decide to settle in familiar grounds. There is only one way to know what lies beyond the horizon and that is going beyond the horizon itself!
There is freedom beyond selling your time that no amount of money can buy. Anyone that has tasted this freedom will vow never to bow to the slavery of a pay check. Your dreams are not going to come to pass while you are busy chasing after another man’s dream. It is not wrong to start out in formal employment, it is wrong to bury your dreams because of the fear of the unknown. All the rich/ wealthy people around us are selling products not time. If you want to become wealthy, start selling products and not your time.
