Do This If You Want People To Take You More Seriously

We often feel unheard.

You feel people’s resistance in meetings or among a group of friends. When you try to express your views and opinions, people don’t listen to you or take you seriously.

I’ve been there, and it’s a horrible situation to be in. I felt disrespected, but there was nothing I could do about it.

Even though I’ve tried to improve my circumstances, I still feel left out. I notice people walking all over me, and I can do nothing about it. However, I don’t feel its impact as much as I used to. I’ve learned to let go and focus on myself, and the circumstances don’t bother me anymore.

I listened to one of my uncles speak about a random topic during our family gathering. I felt he was overdoing it, but surprisingly, everyone listened attentively to him. What was more shocking was that most of my family members agreed with him.

That was weird.

A few days later, I was at a meeting with a client and some of his colleagues. I noticed a similar situation there. Whatever my client was saying, his colleagues agreed to it, although some of his words didn’t make sense.

I wonder why people’s behaviors changed around people like my uncle and client. What was unique about them that made others listen to them so attentively? What made others agree with them?

After thinking about it for a few days, I found a common quality in my uncle and client: They were both rich.

My uncle is one of the wealthiest people in my family. And my client is also a rich dude.

I noticed similar patterns when watching interviews with wealthy people online. People listen when they speak something, and more than ninety percent of the people in the room agree with whatever the speaker says.

So folks, if you want people to take you more seriously, make more money.

I know, it’s sad. And it’s probably not the answer you were expecting.

I’ve read and researched a lot about money and wealth. One significant fact I’ve found is that money makes you powerful. It’s not only about the power to buy stuff but also about gaining respect from people and society. Money gives you:

  • Power of choice
  • Power to own your time
  • Power to be respected
  • Power to live your wildest dreams

In today’s world, money is a necessity for survival. The one who has money can live the best life.

For those who think money can’t buy happiness, it’s time to wake up. Money can give you everything you want. Of course, it will not improve your health and relationships. But it can buy you the best quality of life, including the power to get people to take you more seriously.

You have the right to be rich. And you should pursue becoming a wealthy man or woman.

“There is nothing wrong in wanting to get rich. The desire for riches is really the desire for a richer, fuller, and more abundant life; and that desire is praise worthy. The man who does not desire to live more abundantly is abnormal, and so the man who does not desire to have money enough to buy all he wants is abnormal.” — Wallace D. Wattles, The Science of Getting Rich

If you want to gain respect, be rich. If you want to take care of people you love, be rich. If you want to live a fulfilled life, be rich.

Get your sh*t together. Improve your health and your mindset. Practice good habits like reading, learning, networking, and doing what needs to be done. Getting rich is not an option. It’s a necessity if you want to live happily in this world.

This article might be off-putting for most of you. I might sound like an online guru, telling you to make money and get your life together. I don’t want to sound rude or offend you in any way. I’m only spitting facts from what I’ve experienced. I know that money is not everything, but having a lot of money can 100x the quality of your life. And that’s what I want for you.

I understand that making money isn’t easy. It takes hard work and intense focus to create massive wealth. But everything will be worth it when you reach the top.

My motive for making money is to gain respect and take care of the people I love. I want to make a better impact on people and society. At the same time, I want freedom of time and to do what I want whenever I want.

Be clear about your purpose, and start taking action.
