IT takes more than just money and material things to separate the wealthy from the rest. It’s obvious that wealthy people live in big houses, drive the newest models and have the best holidays.
BUT it’s more than just the the outer appearances that separate the wealthy from the rest. It’s what’s happening behind the scenes that truly sets them apart from the average Joe.
The wealthy think wealthy. Now what I mean by this is that they possess a mindset that not only allows them to become wealthy, but stay wealthy as well. This may seem a little unlikely, but let me illustrate:
When you were young, everything was fun and carefree so that’s what you did. When you became older, you began to pay more attention to the opposite sex. Then when you were fully grown, you became more focused on family and your home.
Do you see how states of mind affect your behaviour? All of these are states of mind that you are in at a certain point in your life.
Controlling your state of mind will improve your business, your money and your life overall.
Here are the vital steps to a wealthy mindset:
Wealthy Mindset Step # 1: Set Your Goals
MAKE a list of what you want and don’t set limits on it. If you want to make $100,000 a month, then write it down. Write out what you want out of your life – a big house, a luxury car, anything you can think of. Write down how you want you and your family to live.
Take this list of goals and put it somewhere you will see everyday. This will keep you focused on what you want to achieve. Staying focused on your goals is a big part of thinking rich; if you aren’t consistently thinking of your goals, they will get lost and you won’t be cultivating the proper mindset.
Wealthy Mindset Step # 2: Surround Yourself With Your Goals
SOME of the people with the highest reputation in the personal development field assert that if you surround yourself with pictures and writings of what you want, you will achieve them.
By posting pictures at your computer as you sign on everyday to begin working, you will see the picture of your desires, and read your writings about the lifestyle you want to create for you and your family.
Wealthy Mindset Step # 3: Picture Yourself Successful
This is all about changing your mindset and keeping focused. Visualise yourself already in possession of everything you’ve written down. Believe you are already successful.
Believing you are already successful and in possession of all these wonderful things changes your mindset. Believe and truly believe you are there.
Wealthy Mindset Step # 4: Get Rid Of Negativity
This means two things in particular. Eliminate those thoughts of “I can’t”. If something is a little out of your price range, don’t say “I can’t afford it” but say something like “How can I afford it…” This takes the NO out of your mouth and out of your mind. “No” will only hold you back.
The same thing goes for people; if you have individuals around you who are constantly putting you down, saying you’ll never make it, maybe it’s time to have a talk with them and tell them you need their support.
If they cannot support you (or at least not put you down), then maybe you should avoid them when you can.
Wealthy Mindset Step # 5: Take Action
Now that you have negated the negativity in and around you, and you believe in your goals and yourself, it’s time to put it all in to action.
Creating the wealthy mindset will get you past a lot but you can’t just think about it, you need to think and act. Putting all of your goals and ideas into action with your newfound mindset will build the lifestyle you are dreaming of. Dream big because nothing is unreachable when you put your mind to it.
Changing your mindset to thinking wealthy can be an incredible change for you. Start believing in yourself, and the process of thinking rich, and you can see wealth before you know it.
Changing your overall view of the world can bring on experiences and opportunities that you may never have gotten – or even saw – if you had not changed the way you think. Reach for the stars and stay focused; with your new wealthy entrepreneur mindset, anything is possible.
