What is the Difference Between Wealth & Being Rich?

“Pity the man who inherits a million and isn’t a millionaire. Here’s what would be pitiful,if your income grew and you didn’t.” –Jim Rohn, entrepreneur, author, motivational speaker

Hey everybody — it’s Daniel Wiafe, your motivational coach back with some words of inspiration to help you become abundant in your life, wealth, health & relationships.

Today, we will be looking at what the difference is between wealth and being rich.

Just because a person is rich or has more money in their little finger than Scrooge McDuck… doesn’t mean that that person is wealthy.

Wealth defined is, “an abundance or profusion of anything; plentiful amount”

This means that for a person to be wealthy — they need to be an abundant person. Abundance includes money, obviously… but it includes so much more than just money or physical riches. Read more »

Now, I don’t mean try to strengthen EVERY relationship… that would simply be impossible. But focus on the one, possibly two people in your life… who are the most important people in your life.

This will definitely be your husband or your wife or your fiancee… and can include siblings, parents and very, very close friends who are in your life right now… and are completely for you and stand behind you no matter what.

Now — once you have identified that special person (or people)… make it your intent to share your joy with them.

Doing this small task will double your joy! Right now as I write this post Read more »

Don’t Try to Please Everybody

“The man who trims himself to suit everybody will soon whittle himself away.” (Charles M. Schwab, multi-millionaire steel tycoon)

Good morning or day to you wherever in the world you are located at… it’s Daniel Wiafe, your daily motivational coach — back with some inspiring words to help give you a nice, little charge… so that you can live this day to fullest… and so that you can come one step closer to living your best life ever!

If you’re like me… then you are probably one of those types of people who in their pursuit of being positive and trying to be nice to folks… fall in that category of trying to please everyone that you run into (well, at least the important people, LOL)

And while there’s nothing wrong with trying to make a good impression on others… and there’s nothing wrong with a person seeking to do good or meet the needs of others… when we make it our #1 priority to try to please everybody… we begin to “take away” from the person of who we are.

Because the fact is this: People all have different expectations of you. Isn’t that true, if you take a moment to think about that? Read more »

The 3 Secrets to Living Your BEST Life!

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.” –Buddha

Hello everybody, this is Daniel Wiafe here again… and I would like to wish you a happy Friday today! I am up and at ’em at 4 o’clock in the morning writing this… which is FAR too early for me! 😉

Today’s motivational quote is just AWESOME… and it really hit home for me personally when I stumbled upon it last week.

“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship.”

I believe it resounded so strongly in me because of how simple… yet POWERFUL this truth is.

You see my friend, we all seek to be happy and to be fulfilled… and I believe that the 3 major components of a person having the life that they dream of revolves around that person being balanced in the areas of their HEALTH, their WEALTH and their RELATIONSHIPS.

I also believe that TRUE happiness comes when we seek SPIRITUALITY (a true relationship with God) in those areas. Don’t just seek God alone or independently of everything else in your life… but seek God FIRST in your health… seek Him FIRST in your wealth and seek him FIRST in your relationships.

So, let’s get at it… what are the 3 Secrets to You Living Your Best Life? Read more »

You Can’t Live Your Life for Other People

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.

And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”  (Steve Jobs, co-founder and CEO of Apple)

Good day everybody… if you are reading this post at the time of publishing… it’s Monday and I hope you had a most EXCELLENT and PEACEFUL weekend!

Today we’re going to discuss two (2) reasons why you can’t live life for other people… and why it would be totally unfair for you to live life based on others expectations on you.

When you live your life for the sole benefit of others… or if you live your life because you are seeking to meet someone’s approval or make them love you more… you are doing yourself a great disservice. Read more »

How to Make New Friends, Part 1

No matter what field, career or business  a person is in… there is typically ONE major component that can lead to the success of that person over another of similar ability.

That major component is human relations.

Now I know when you read the words “human relations”, you probably gave a big *YAWN* to me… but trust me, keep reading on… because it’s DEFINITELY not a boring topic. (Trust me!!)

In a nut shell, human relations is the skill that you have in knowing how to handle a difficult person, how to make yourself a more “likeable” person to them, how to win people into your line of thinking and how to lead people.

Can you see how this can help you get ahead in life?

In fact, I promise you… you can take two people, of the same age… of the same skill set… with the same education… at the same job… and the person who has the better human relation skills will literally SKYROCKET past the poor schmuck who doesn’t know how to talk to or communicate with others.

Over the course of the next few weeks… I am going to give tips and secrets in how you can make new friends wherever you go. Read more »

How Can I Get True Value in Life?

“Treasure the love you receive above all. It will survive long after your gold and good health have vanished.” – Og Mandino

Good morning everybody… I hope you are having a wonderful and a warm day today… and living life to it’s FULLEST!

Our lives for the most part revolve around three (3) major things that we try to balance:

Health, Wealth & Relationships.

Your health involves you having a peace of mind, good physical health in your body, your nutrition, exercise regimen and a stress-free life.

Your wealth involves your career, business, education that leads you to making more money, investments, the assets & property you own.

If you read yesterday’s post on “God will never leave you or forsake you?“… then you know that although money is important in all of our lives… it should NEVER be the sole thing that we strive for in life, because although we can buy things with money that will bring us temporary fulfillment… lasting joy cannot come from money.

In fact, it can be a chore at times to manage the money, the income and the expenses that arise from having a high cash flow coming in. Read more »

[Daily Encouragement] Moving Forward with Life

“You can’t freely move forward in life… until you make the decision to leave dead weight behind” –Daniel Wiafe

Anchors are used on boats to keep them stationary in the water… and to prevent them from moving with the currents on a lake, river or ocean.

When you compare the size of an anchor to the boat… you will see that a boat can be hundreds of times bigger than the anchor… yet the anchor still has the POWER to prevent the boat from moving forward.

In fact, you can turn on the engine to that boat… and hit the throttle and gun it… but unless you pull up the anchor or cut it loose, you will get the anchor tangled up and stuck on rocks… or worse, destroy your boat.

We as people have “anchors” in our lives that prevent us from moving forward in life and keep us in a stalled position… when we should be progressing with our lives. Read more »
