Learn to Adopt The Millionaire Mindset
If the success and wealth you dream of remains just that, unfulfilled dreams, then you’re probably lacking what could be the single most important factor that will determine your success: The Millionaire Mindset. Not only do you need to learn to become success conscious, but you need to become wealth conscious to attract wealth. By adopting the millionaire mindset, your life will become infinitely more prosperous.
What you believe about yourself makes all the difference in world when it comes to attaining your goals. But if you don’t believe you can do it, can you change that? Yes, you can! That’s good news for everyone. The key is to change how you think about things. I’m talking about shifting away from a mindset of scarcity (a negative approach in which the glass is always seen as half empty), a feeling of never having enough and move towards a mindset of abundance (a positive approach in which the glass is always half full, and getting fuller all the time!). Let’s take a closer look at exactly what goes into the millionaire mindset.
Key Elements of the Millionaire Mindset
Creating POSITIVE self-fulfilling prophecies. We’ve all heard of “self-fulfilling prophecies,” but it’s usually in the context of not jinxing yourself into a negative outcome. But you can utilize this in its opposite form as well to set up self-fulfilling prophecies that are in line with your goals! Rather than saying something like “I don’t see how I could ever become a millionaire,” you say things to yourself like “Becoming a millionaire is easy and I’m well on my way.” Repeat such phrases to yourself as often as you can, or print them out and put them up in places where you see them frequently. As you begin to believe to these statements, you will naturally start to see and do the things that will make it become a reality. Rather than merely wanting to be rich, commit yourself to being rich. It’s a subtle but powerful difference in mindset.
Acting the Part. If you want to become a millionaire, then start acting like one! Obviously you can’t go around spending like a millionaire… or can you? You may be surprised to find out that most self-made millionaires are really quite frugal with both their money and their time. Don’t spend just for the sake of spending. Only spend money on the things you really, really want. If you want them badly enough, that positive energy will work to help attract the money needed to make them happen. Expect the money to come and you’ll start seeing your way towards it. If you act the part long enough, it will become embedded in your subconscious mind, which is much more powerful than your conscious mind in making your dreams come true.
Drivers of Change. In the millionaire mindset, you are never satisfied with the status quo. You have a strong drive to want to change the status quo, to always strive for more. Yes, you will feel doubts and insecurities along the way. In the millionaire mindset, however, you don’t get stuck there. You feel those feelings, own them and then set them aside and move forward. That’s what is known as courage, taking action in spite of fears and doubts. It involves practicing and being comfortable with taking risks to the point that you enjoy it. Only by taking such risks can you find out what you’re really capable of.
Key Differences Between The Millionaire Mindset and a Mediocre Mindset
Some of the things that set the millionaire mindset apart from a more mediocre mindset include the following:
- I make my life
- I act in spite of fear
- I focus on opportunities
- I play to win
- I hang out with positive, successful people
- I think “both/and”
- Life just happens to me
- I let fear stop me in my tracks
- I focus on obstacles
- I play to not lose
- I hang out with negative people
- I think “either/or”
This list could go on and on. Feel free to add your own items to it that are particularly relevant to you and your situation. Do you see the difference here between the mediocre mindset and the millionaire mindset? It’s all about the frame of mind that you cultivate within yourself. It’s really not rocket science. You just have to train yourself to start seeing things from the perspective of the millionaire mindset. The longer you do that, the more you will actually come to believe it. And the more you really believe it, the much more likely it is to actually come about in your own life. So what are you waiting for? Start cultivating the millionaire mindset today!
