Plan, think, and dream big — but start small

In a post for Business Insider, Ramit Sethi, author of “I Will Teach You To Be Rich,” wrote that we don’t think we can earn money because no one teaches us how.

“We never see people like us do it, so we have no reason to believe we can,” he wrote.

He added: “We’re left with a deep-rooted, toxic belief that earning more is only for ‘other’ people. Then tell ourselves things like, ‘I can’t earn more, I don’t have time/an idea/the right background.'”

He called this a self-limiting belief — but once you realize it’s not a fact, he said, you can get started earning more money.

He broke it down with simple math: If you make $50 per hour, work 10 hours per week for five months, you could earn an extra $10,000. To earn that in two-and-a-half months, you’d have to make $100 per hour at 10 hours per week.

“Whether you actually make $50 per hour is beside the point,” he said. “The real message is this: If goals seem too out-of-reach, we’re not able to visualize what to do. Instead, dream big, start small.”
