I have read several articles that claim that people make only as much money and achieve as much success as their internal mental, spiritual and emotional self wants them to. In other words, only a small percentage of people go on to become really wealthy is because the rest don’t will themselves to.
This then makes me conclude that you just need to change the tuning of your mind and heart to attain riches.
Here are some thoughts…
It has to occur to you that you too can become rich. It’s not an “It can happen only to theirs” phenomenon!
Even if you are an “average” person who has grown up in a middle class environment, be aspirational. Do not conclude that it is beyond your reach to attain wealth. For unless it occurs to you that you can become rich, you’ll never take any of the steps necessary to make it a reality.
There’s a saying that goes “if you continue to do what you’ve always done, you’ll continue to get what you’ve always got. So, once it’s occurred to you that you can become rich, you need to decide to become rich. Meaning to, hoping to, wishing to are not enough. You must actually decide to become wealthy. Decide – “I’m going to become wealthy”. It’s essential!
People often always find a reason to procrastinate. Business, markets, risk averseness, wrong time personally – they’ll always find a reason to delay things, perhaps until it’s too late.
Don’t push your opportunity to become wealthy into the indefinite future. There’s no time like the present.
Many people have an innate inability to wait for gratification.
Avoid the temptation to spend every unit of money you make. Discipline youself to budget, save, invest.
In a longitudinal study conducted by Dr. Edward Banfield at Harvard University in the 1950s and published in 1964 as The Unheavenly City, he studied the reasons for upward socio-economic mobility. He wanted to know how you could predict whether an individual or a family was going to move upward one or more socio-economic groupings and be wealthier in the next generation than they were this generation.
All his research brought him to a single factor that he concluded was more accurate than any other in predicting success in America. They called it time perspective. This was defined as the amount of time that you take into consideration when planning your day-to-day activities and when making important decisions in your life. Time perspective referred to how far you projected into the future when you decided what you were going to do or not do in the present.
In simple terms, it is about long term planning. Visualise a goal of becoming wealthy long term, and you’ll achieve it.
The Millionaire Mind Intensive program elaborates on the above points.
It claims that we ALL have an internal MONEY BLUEPRINT that determines if we'll be struggling our entire life to scrape by or if we attract wealth to ourselves.
It’ll help you identify your unconscious conditioning about money and reset your “financial thermostat” to a higher level of wealth and achievement.
