Pie-is-goneMedian household income fell slightly to $51,017 a year in 2012, down from $51,100 in 2011. It’s tough to get ahead on this income let alone put away for some sort of comfortable retirement. Since 1967, Americans right in the middle of the income curve have seen their earnings rise only 19%, while those in the top 5% have seen a 67% gain.

Why do the wealthy seem to always do better?

It’s simple and some of you will not like my answer.

The top 5% understand the abundance mindset the best.

That’s it. They think and understand better than those who struggle. You may believe that there has to be more to it.  A person can’t just think their way to wealth. You may believe you need “breaks” along the way or a massive amount of luck. I know some of you think that the wealthy, in this 5% category, are greedy. Some of you think that they took advantage of others. Some of you may know a wealthy person and believe you are smarter than they are and wonder how on earth a dweeb could do so well. Right?

Please listen as I discuss the importance of mindset and how you can acquire it.
