How do you get rich quick?
The answer to that is, you don't; you get rich slowly, says Pat Mesiti, author of 'How to Have a Millionaire Mindset' and eight other best-selling books, at the 2016 Millionaire Summit in Dubai.
Mesiti, a performance expert and income acceleration coach, who is committed to creating 10,000 millionaires with his work, noted that people who want more wealth are almost always held back from getting it because they are too comfortable with where they currently are in their careers and in their life.
"Many of us think like victims when it comes to our fortune in life. You can either make money, or you can make excuses, but you cant make both," said Mesiti. "Remember that your greatest asset is you, and that you can have more only if you become more. We settle for less, because we don't think of working for more. The difference is in the mindset. You have to empower yourself and say that it is my decisions that decide my wealth. Always remember that the return will come to those that are willing to invest and to share their wealth."
Speaking on the importance of the event, Oksana Tashakova, founder of Wealth Dynamics Unlimited and the organiser of the Millionaire Summit, said: "The Millionaire Summit isn't an academic or theory-based conference, it provides new and innovative business solutions and actionable and practical strategies. It's a place where like-minded individuals, whether they have small plans or big plans, come together to learn from the experts, meet others and take their dreams one step closer."
"Constant innovation is the rule of business today. Contrary to what most believe, it is SMEs, not large corporations, that are the most potent drivers of innovation and are responsible for a lion's share of new patents and ideas. SMEs host the majority of employment opportunities in the UAE and provide 86 per cent of all private sector employment. With an ear to the ground, more direct contact with consumers, and less constrained by bureaucracy or beholden to any one process or technology, small and medium enterprises are the disruptors and trendsetters in a business environment where change is the only constant," she said.
John Lincoln, senior vice president of small and medium businesses at Etisalat added: "The UAE embodies dynamism, excitement and boundless potential for start-ups and SMBs. More than 100,000 SMBs are estimated to set up shop in this country over the next three years. We understand that SMBs are a critical part of the economy, a segment that Etisalat wants to nurture, support and help grow. We believe in their best interests, which is to help their businesses stay connected and more importantly, get digitised."
