There are two important factors to get self-sufficient and prosperous with financial abundance.
The first is learning how to get self-sufficient, and the other is learning how to stay that way forever.
Self-sufficiency (also called self-containment) is the state of not requiring any aid, support, or interaction for survival; it is a type of personal or collective autonomy.
Many people who get self-sufficient stay that way for the rest of their lives.
On the other hand, people who are only interested in “getting rich quick,” i.e. lottery winners, are bankrupt within a couple of years.
After winning millions and millions of dollars, these people are back to the starting point, or sometimes even worse off.
Now, let’s compare that with someone like Donald Trump.
We all know that he is a very wealthy billionaire, but he was at times completely broke.
However, even when he was in the red, it was only a matter of time before he once again regained his wealth.
This shows that getting rich is only half the equation, and keeping it is the other.
Depending on how you go about getting financially self-sustainable, you cannot only get there, but it will be a normal part of your life, and you will always have enough to meet your needs, and share.
The reason that both of these examples happen whether getting self-sufficient or rich is mostly a mental game.
It is attitudes, beliefs, and dominant thoughts about your financial abilities that determine your financial future.
If you have a poverty consciousness, then you tend to stress and worry about money.
Money is a subject that brings up negative emotions such as inability to get self-sufficient, as well as about other prosperous people.
Now, someone like Donald Trump has a wealth consciousness.
He feels good about money, he does not stress his finances, yet has confidence in his ability to get prosperity.
This is the type of attitude that cannot only attract prosperity with financial abundance, but it will keep them around for a lifetime.
As both examples showed, getting self-sufficient is only half the equation, and keeping it is the other (learning how to hang on to money) no matter how it is earned.
