27 Lessons for Living a Rich Life…

Posted By: Randy GageApril 15, 2021

(A Letter to My Younger Self...)

Do you remember your childhood as a time of joy, curiosity, and love?  Hopefully you do, but I sure don’t.  As an effeminate boy with social anxiety issues, my early childhood was filled with anxiety, uncertainty, and fear. I had bad teeth, a big nose, and was a gangly, awkward bookworm.  As a teenager I turned to drugs and alcohol and ended up in a jail cell for armed robbery at 15 years old.  My formative years were spent shunned as an outsider, ostracized as a faggot, and demonized as a delinquent.   

But that’s not how things turned out…

I was blessed with someone who saw greatness in me before I could see it myself, a mom who never gave up, and a public defender and judge who believed in second chances.  If only I had known how things were going to work out – I could have saved myself a lot of trauma, drama, and anguish. 

What I didn’t know then was that each obstacle, setback, and defeat would serve as stepping-stones.  Most people believe that the opposite of success is failure, but that’s a lie.  Failure is actually part of the success process, as it forces you to learn, grow, modify, adapt, and learn new skills.

Provided you refuse to give up, you learn and grow, discover buried talents, develop new skills, and cultivate latent courage.  If I could go back and talk to my younger self, I would share the following 27 life lessons with him. But since I can’t do that, allow me to share them with you. (Feel free to print out, bookmark this page, and share with your world.)

If your dream is big enough and worthy enough, you will usually find a way to make it come true.  Not all dreams are meant to come true, however.  Some exist simply to challenge you into becoming a higher version of yourself. 

The easiest person to sell a limiting belief to is yourself. Stop buying them.

When you share your talents and gifts they expand and grow stronger. You can’t out-give the universe.  But try anyway.

Debt is a prison.  Find a way to break out.

The strategy that got you here is usually the biggest obstacle to getting you to the next level.  Sell some of your certainty and buy some curiosity. 

You can change without growing. But you can't grow without changing.

If you play fucked up games, you win fucked up prizes.  The only way to win the rat race is by becoming a rat.

You don’t create your future. You create your daily habits, and those daily habits are what actually create your future.

You either hate change enough to stay mediocre, or you hate being mediocre enough to change.

If you want to live better, you have to be willing to get better.  Success never goes on sale, be willing to pay the market price. 

Struggle seems like it’s a barricade to your success, but most of the time it’s a bridge.

You can't stop transformation; it's a continuous, incremental process.  You must mindfully choose the forward direction or entropy will unmindfully choose the backward direction. 

The biggest contributor to your health, happiness and success is the power of mind.  Your life will reflect your thoughts. Make them prosperous and your life will be too.

No one ever had a breakthrough in their comfort zone.  To discover your true potential, you have to first identify your limit. Then go past it.

Bills are invoices for blessings you’ve already received. Pay them with gratitude and circulate prosperity.

What you have done and who you have been, doesn’t have to preclude you, from what you can do and who you can become.

You’re only going to get today once. Make it count.

If you believe something is impossible to fail, your probability of success goes up exponentially.  

All of the true elements of prosperity – wellness, love, happiness, and yes, money – are infinite.

The change you fight the hardest – is usually the breakthrough you need the most.

If you desire to embolden yourself, associate with bold people. Surround yourself with people who dream bigger than you do.

If you want people to feel sorry for you, you will continually manifest situations that foster that.  To become a victor, you nave to release being a victim.

When you eliminate negative people from your life, negative things happen to you a lot less.

Announcing your dream will recruit the people who believe in you and will help.  And expose the ones who won’t.

We’re all forced take detours sometimes. Just don't let them turn into the destination.

Challenges are a mandatory part of life.  Being a victim is optional.

The only thing more expensive than the cost of living your dream, is the cost of not living it.

Peace,

- RG

  1. WOW! I'm going to print this out, and keep it inside my copy of Radical Rebirth. A blog post that's better than all of the self help books I've read over the years? Incredible. Thank You.

  2. That's great your childhood was hard.... But now you're an example to everyone.... God bless you

  3. Randy...

    For more than an hour I have been sitting and pondering the list items. This page is really more valuable than a whole shelf of books on self-development!
    I’ll tell you my story in short: about 7 years ago I bought all your books and CDs and DVDs and audios - everything that was on your website then was on sale, I watched, listened, read, absorbed information ... Then it seemed to me that I understood everything, but change my life didn't work out, and I haven't read you all these years.
    Books and CDs were in the closet, but for some reason I didn't throw them away ... I don't know why, honestly. About a month ago, I came across them, uploaded all this to my player and began to review and re-listen, I am also reading a series of 5 books ...

    And now I UNDERSTOOD what was the matter, and you are right, a thousand times right - I just didn’t allow myself to accept all this, I didn’t allow myself to start changing ... I don’t know what happened now, but now I understood it for sure and everything opened up in a new light.

    Over the years I've tried a lot of things, trying to change, all the techniques for personal growth, goal setting - practically nothing works, but only you were able to explain to me why. And I am sure that this pause of 7 years was also needed, perhaps all these years your materials have been working in my subconscious ... and now, I am sure, the time has come for them to be fully and truly used!

    Now I really understood your message to the world as a whole and to me personally, and over the past 2 weeks my consciousness and perception of the world have changed so that I am literally shocked by this ...

    I understand that there are still many obstacles, difficulties and setbacks on the way, but , Randy, I'm ON THE WAY! Thank you for everything you do, it's amazing! I subscribed to your podcast, listen to episodes and now I'm not going to stop.

    I understand that it will be very difficult, but you are right - the price of giving up the life of my dreams is incomparably higher than the price that will have to be paid to get to it. And I am ready to pay this price now.

    That's a story, thank you for everything, I remain a prosperity student and intend to do everything you teach and become as prosperous as you are! Thank you, mentor, without you I would literally die!

    Now the world will meet a new version of me, and I am sure that everything will work out !!! There are no words to express my gratitude to you, now it seems to me that I REALLY UNDERSTOOD your main message, and I will read and listen to you so as not to lose my way.

    Long years, health and blessings !!!

  4. One more thing - do you remember how you discovered in the book "Dynamic Laws of Prosperity" two pages that seemed to be not there before, as if the author sneaked in and pasted these pages into the book while you were sleeping?

    I'm listening to these materials again now (I bought them 7 years ago!!!), and I have the same feelings that "Randy sneaked about month ago to my room and added to these disks some materials that I had not heard on them before" )))

    You understand me ... This is an amazing discovery. Apparently, it should have been on my way, and now I listen to all this with new ears and look at it with new eyes...

    1. Pavel, it's so delightful to read your message. So glad to see you on the journey to your next breakthrough. One thing to add: Make sure to read my new book, "Radical Rebirth." It will really pull everything together for you in a congruent manner. All the best, RG

  5. I've got to add one more that I think about daily that came from you, "The only free cheese is in the mousetrap."

    Goosebumps!

  6. Thank you Mr Randy Gage my life is consistently becoming better thank you for your podcast and prosperity tv.

  7. My dear randy you always surprise me with your fabulous and energetic post and text,I wish I visit you face to face,you impress everyone with your knowledge
