Your greatest enemy is not who you think

Right now, there is a battle for your soul.

It’s really the battle of great vs. mediocre.

When we are presented with a business idea or an opportunity those around us usually tell us all the reasons we can’t do it.


Sometimes it’s not others that say, “You can’t do that.”

It can often be our own minds.

In those times, our will is tested and we are experiencing the battle between our spirit and our mind.

One of rich dad’s favorite quotes from Einstein was:

“Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.”

We all possess both a great spirit and a mediocre mind. The challenge in turning our ideas into a million-dollar asset is often the battle between our own great spirits and our own, often-mediocre, minds.

Whenever a person’s mediocre mind begins to oppose their own great spirits, I always remind them of what my “rich dad” said to me:

“There are many people with great ideas, but very few people with great amounts of money.”

The reason is the 90/10 rule (90 percent of money is made by 10 percent of people) holds true is that it does not take a great idea to become rich.

You must be strong in spirit and in your convictions to turn your ideas into fortunes.

P.S. – Always remember that great ideas become great fortunes only if the person behind them is willing to also become great. You must have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and the will to go on, even when filled with doubt.

Turning an idea into a great fortune is more a matter of the entrepreneurial spirit rather than a matter of the human mind. Once you find your entrepreneurial spirit, you will forever be able to take very ordinary ideas and turn them into extraordinary fortunes.
