To succeed in building wealth, you want to be driven by internal goals deeper than just the external trappings of wealth.
You want a cause that will bring transformation to your life and drive you deep enough to overcome all the obstacles that stand between you and financial freedom.
Internally-driven goals that might focus your attention long enough to succeed include the following:
- Freedom: Break loose from the shackles of daily labor so that you have more time to grow, create, and live to your fullest potential.
- Charity & Impact Investing: The more you have the more you can give. Charitable foundations created by wealthy families often provide the financial muscle to empower great social and environmental causes.
- Growth & Development: When you have financial freedom, you also have more time to pursue personal freedom. The wealth in your external world becomes a mirror to the wealth in your internal world. The principles that lead to financial wealth can also lead to true wealth by affecting other areas of your life.
- Leadership: Grow your own wealth ethically and joyfully so that you can lead by example for friends and family to rise above the bonds of financial mediocrity and follow in your footsteps.
