  • The average American man withbachelor's degree will earn about  

  • 2.2 million dollars in his lifetime. Which islot of money, but Bezos makes that in under just  

  • 15 minutes, which is mind-blowingHe makes an estimated 149,353  

  • dollars every minute. By the end of this  video, Bezos is going to make more money  

  • than you would in your entire life. I know that these numbers can damage  

  • your self-esteem because making that  kind of numbers seems impossible

  • Forbes estimates his net worth much bigger  than the entire British royal family

  • It's a living proof that you can get wealthier  than even royal families if you have the right  

  • mindset and the skills. So here in this video,  

  • we are going to take a look at 7 skills  that you need to start building wealth.  

  • Without mastering these skills, you  will not go far, especially financially,  

  • so if you want to get out of that dark financial  position that you are in, listen carefully because  

  • you are about to find out the skills that  will help you to become financially free

  • They may not directly earn you more money, like  copywriting, coding or marketing but in many ways,  

  • they are far more important, and I would go as far  as to say, without them, you will achieve nothing

  • But what's far more important is giving this video  a thumbs up because there is no other way to let  

  • YouTube know that this video is great other  than interacting with it which means, giving  

  • a thumbs up and commenting. It doesn't matter  what you comment. Just go down to the comment  

  • section and type whatever you want and let's see  is that's going to help this video get promoted.  

  • persuasive skills

  • Take a look at any businesses. You  will realize that all they do is sell,  

  • sometimes it's a service or a product, and quite  often, the product is not even produced by them.  

  • But they know how to sell it. If you are a good salesman, you will  

  • never be poor because in the world of capitalism. Think for a moment. Let's say you have great  

  • selling skills. All that is left  for you to do is to pick a product,  

  • and it's a matter of time before you sell  enough to be drawn in a pile of cash

  • There is a reason why people buy from  one person and ignore the other. There  

  • is a reason why people prefer to buy one  company, not from thousands of others

  • And if you are serious about building real  wealth, you cant simply skip this skill.  

  • Because without it you can't go far. Selling doesn't necessarily mean  

  • selling a product. You might need to sell  yourself or your team to get that investment

  • When you are in a job interview, you are trying  to sell yourself to get that position. And the  

  • better persuasive skills you have, the higher  the salary you will be able to negotiate

  • The best way to pomp up your persuasive skills  is to become a salesman just to learn these  

  • skills. Every day you will be talking to dozens  of people trying to sell them something. And it  

  • will be only a matter of time before you will feel  completely comfortable selling anything to anyone

 2. Playing Chess

  • If you know how to play Chess, then you  understand the importance of strategy.  

  • The goal isn't to get rid of  your opponent's every soldier  

  • but rather focus on his greatest weakness and trap  him. As soon you get rid of his king, he is done.  

  • Before making any move, you should be able to  see at least a few steps ahead of you because  

  • you do not win the game by a single move but  rather a bunch of moves carefully planned ahead,  

  • which is how you also build a business. The game of chess helps you to see the  

  • bigger picture instead of just focusing on  what's happening now. It helps to understand  

  • that it is alright to lose small battles in the  short run in order to win the game in the end.  

  •  Chess is about strategy, and without  a strategy, you can't build wealth


 3. Patience  

  • Do you know how most people lose money

  • A stock or an asset suddenly starts rising for  one reason or another. It's all over the news;  

  • everyone talks about it. From the outside, it  seems like one a lifetime opportunity, so you feel  

  • like you are missing out. You don't want to sit  aside and watch how everyone is making a fortune  

  • while you are not, so you jump in but then  suddenly the bubble bursts, the stock crashes,  

  • and you lose your entire investment. Isn't  that what happened with Gamestop, for example.  

  • That's why you have to learn to be  patient. Don't be driven by your emotions.  

  • There is no quick way to get rich. Of coursethere are opportunities that, time to time,  

  • come and go that could earn you millions inmatter of a few years, but that's rare, and if  

  • you want to take advantage of such opportunitiesyou have to spot them way before the public does

  • I have seen a countless number of people who lost  fortunes just because they weren't patient enough.  

  • It's not an easy skill to master but if you do  not master it, you are going to get back to your  

  • dark financial position sooner or  later, even if you win the lottery

 4. self-education 

  • If there is one lesson  

  • you will take out of this video, let it be this  one. When you go to school, you are brainwashed  

  • into thinking that's the place where you learnyou need someone to teach you something, and then  

  • you have to go to college to learn something so  that you can be a valuable member of society,  

  • but what happens instead you memorizebunch of useless facts that you, later on,  

  • write down on a test, and then a few moments  later you forget absolutely everything

  • Here is what I hate the most about the schoolWhenever I use to ask my teacher about the point  

  • of learning, she would always replyyou will need it in the future,  

  • it's important or something along those linesBut there was never a good reason to motivate  

  • me to learn that, which is why I think  the entire school system is broken.  

  • The teacher has a way to teach, and she assumes  that method works with everyone, which is not the  

  • case. People are different! 

  • Imagine if you go to school and you learn  the things that will really help you in life.  

  • Just a simple example of why you should never  rely on traditional institutions for knowledge  

  • is you never learn anything about  stuff that matters, such as money,  

  • relationships, social skills, and many more. So learning how to teach yourself is the  

  • most important skill ever. You no longer needdegree or someone, especially since we have this  

  • thing called the internet. You can turn on your  computer and teach yourself whatever you want.  

 5. staying focus 

  • Let me give you one of the best ways to get richThis advice works with everyone and it has been  

  • working since the day humans existed. Spend over  10K hours mastering a skill, a skill that is in  

  • demand. Become great at it. In fact, be the best  at it so that everyone comes to you for that

  • Taxes are complicated,  

  • for example, but everyone has to do their taxes  from individuals to companies. Businesses are  

  • willing to pay a fortune if you can help them to  avoid paying some taxes, so if you become really  

  • good at accounting and especially taxes, you  can charge a huge amount of money in exchange  

  • for financial advice. As long as there is a demand  for that skill, you are going to make a fortune

  • If you have a business,  

  • would you pay an accountant 100K if he can save  you 1 million dollars in taxes, for example

  • I think yes! But the only way to master  

  • any skill is to learn to stay focused.
 6. Silence

  • When you are trying to impress people with wordsthe more you say, the more common you appear,  

  • and the less in control. Even if you are saying  something banal, it will seem original if you make  

  • it vague, open-ended. Powerful people impress and  intimidate by saying less. The more you say, the  

  • more likely you are to say something foolish."  If you have read the 48 laws of power,  

  • you probably know the power of silence. To build  a successful business, you need to be able to know  

  • how to deal with people, and silence is a skill  that very few have mastered. Your silence will  

  • put people in a defensive situation and will  make them say more and reveal about themselves  

  • and their intentions more. By saying less  than necessary, people will take your words  

  • more seriously and will listen to them more  carefully, hence making them more valuable

 7. Confidence 

  • Yes, confidence is a skill.  

  • Some people are naturally confident, but the vast  majority of us have to learn it. Everything starts  

  • with believing in yourself, in your abilitiesin your desire to take risks, and you cannot  

  • do that unless you are confident enoughEveryone is talented, but most people lack  

  • the courage to take that step and start  that business, or ask for a promotion  

  • or say No to everything else in order to  find the time to work on what truly matters

  • I had a huge problem with confidence back whenwas a kid, and as I started working on myself and  

  • became more confident, everything has changed. By  the way, I have made a short course on my journey  

  • of how I developed confidence. The  link will be in the description.
