Me Vs. You


Tom Corley boats - crop

Poor people have a ME mindset. They are focused on themselves and what others can do to help them in life. This is born of a scarcity mindset, which focuses on what you lack and want. It is a selfish, victim-based mindset. The problem with this mindset is that people eventually catch on to your scheme and, one by one, will avoid doing business with you.

Self-made millionaires have a YOU mindset. They are focused on what they can do to help others in life. This is born of an abundance mindset, which focuses on what you have that you can give to others.

If you want to succeed in life you have to get into the YOU mindset. When you give others what they need and want, you become a resource to them. The more value you are able to give others, the more of a premium others will be willing to pay for you as a resource.

Poor people have no herds. Millionaires have hundreds of people in their herd. The YOU mindset attracts more people to your herd. The bigger your herd, the more money and success you will realize in life.

  1. While this isn’t true in every case, and certainly not regarding people in certain countries under the thumb of terrible wars and governments. What you have outlined is often true in First World countries where opportunity is everywhere. This notion that we should all just be handed everything is ridiculous. We must provide value if we want to be worth something. That’s what value means.
