If You Have A Poor Mindset, You Will Never Be Wealthy
They say that money can’t buy happiness. That might be true, but it’s better to cry in a mansion than a cardboard box. Money really does make the world go round. With it, you can lead a happy, stress-free existence. Without it, you will constantly worry about whether you have enough to eat, to put a roof over your head and to pay the bills.
That’s not a happy life.
It can be fixed though and in this article we’ll look at the 10 things you do that have a negative impact on your finances.
- You Spend too Much Time Focusing on What you Don’t Have
Focus your mind on the good times, the affluent times. Think about the things that worked and the things you did well and do not let pessimism or negativity enter your thoughts.
Do not think of yourself as a poor person, think of yourself as a rich person in waiting.
2. You Don’t Think you Deserve it
Poor people have a poor relationship with money. They don’t think they deserve wealth and they often squander it when it comes. If you have a negative relationship with money then you won’t be rich.
Tell yourself that you deserve to be rich, because you do.
3. You Don’t Think Positively
Positive thinking can change your mental state and it can also change the world around you. Stop being pessimistic, stop telling yourself that it “probably won’t happen” and that you will never achieve your goals.
Tell yourself that you have what it takes, that you deserve the very best and that, in time, that’s exactly what you will get.
4. You Play it Safe
The richest people in the world secured their fortunes because they took a chance, and if you want to join them, then you need to do the same. Stop playing it safe and start taking a few risks.
Search for new avenues, take a few gambles and do not shy away from an opportunity just because there is no guarantee of success. The path to success is littered with risks and rewards, and you have to take the former to get the latter.
5. You Don’t Get Creative
You need to think out of the box in order to make your fortune. Take a step back and look at your ideas from an objective standpoint. Are they creative and unique enough?
If not, then go back to the drawing board and try for something different, something that no one has done before. If you can be original, then you can secure your goals.
6. You Follow When you Should Lead
The richest and most successful people in the world are leaders, not followers. You don’t make a fortune by doing what everyone else is doing and letting them take control.
Step away from the pack, do your own thing and go your own way. Do not remain in your comfort zone and do not base your decisions on the actions of others.
7. You Compare Yourself to Others
You are unique, a one-of-a-kind, so stop comparing yourself to others. No one has what you have. No one thinks like you, has the same skills as you or the same dreams as you.
You are truly unique, and only when you realize this will you be able to appreciate yourself and everything that you are.
While you should not compare yourself to others, you should look to others to inspire you. Think about the person that you admire the most. Think about their achievements and their success and then think about what you need to do in order to match them.
8. You Are a Victim of Your Own Inadequacies
You are the reason you are not rich yet. No one else is to blame. So, stop targeting your boss, your employees, your friends or your family. It’s all on you and once you accept this and take charge, you can begin the transformation.
Look at what control you have and what you can do with it and then look to exploit this to the full.
9. You Give-up too Easily
If you study people who have dreamed big but never achieved those dreams, you will find a common thread. They like to set goals and they are dedicated to those goals early on, but eventually they lose heart and those goals go uncompleted.
The main reason behind this is that those goals are long-term, so it’s easy to keep putting things off. To get around this, create goals on a daily or weekly basis and do all that you can to adhere to them and ensure they are completed in time.
10. You Lack Self-Belief
Believe in yourself, because you are the only one who can unlock your potential and your fortune. If you believe in yourself you will take more risks, make smarter moves. Someone who doesn’t believe in their abilities is not going to trust their decisions, which means they are not going to go anywhere in life.
You’re blaming others for your own misfortune and it’s time to stop that. You’re the reason you’re not rich and successful, but you have the power to change that. The ten steps listed above can help you to recognize your faults, to change them and to succeed from those changes.
So, embrace your fortune when it comes. You deserve it.
