Six Ways to Develop a Millionaire Mindset
1. Don’t buy stuff you don’t want just because you need to spend money, buy something you really really want
That’s a tremendous money saver. Too many people buy to appear to be wealthy. The actual wealthy usually stay away from impulse shopping crisis, or social pressure for cool gadgets, or you name it. If you manage to really buy things just because you need them, and not because you need to spend money in order to have some thrills and chills out of it, you’re half way there. You’re piling energy and resources.
2. Don’t be afraid to desire things, regardless of their money value
That could be interpreted as contradicting with the first sentence but it isn’t. It’s about giving yourself freedom to want what you really want, without putting a tag or a limit on it. It might costs millions of dollars, but allow yourself to want that thing, even if you don’t have millions of dollars. Yet. You will attract that money. Eventually. Don’t settle for less. It might feel like you don’t have the resources for it at that exact moment, but that’s an indicator of the fact that you don’t want that thing badly enough. Yet.
3. Carry more cash around with you
Don’t ask why, this just works. Make your wallet capable to accommodate your day to day expenses. If you have the desire for millions of dollars but you are not able to pay your parking lot, you won’t have those millions, that’s for sure. Carry more cash but don’t spend more cash if you don’t need to.
4. Learn to truly Understand what people want from you
The easiest and most enjoying way to make money is to get it in exchange for the value you provide. If you’re going to make money this way, it’s crucial to know what people actually want and expect from you. It’s incredible how most of the people are making assumptions about what they are supposed to give. Just make sure that you know exactly what people want from you. And, if you can, deliver.
5. Understand what you can offer to people
If you get to know what people want from you, start finding what you can offer. Maybe they are asking you something impossible or too draining from you? Look inside yourself, assess your skills and values, and see where you can do best. And then try to connect with people that seem to be in need for what you seem to have to offer. And don’t forget to deliver. Ensure that you only offer real value, your reputation depends on this.
6. Don’t think about the money, think about what you can do with the money
This is difficult because there is a whole management pressure to think in terms of budgeting stuff. In terms of: x money for x things. Instead, try to use: “I want to do this thing, and for that I will need that amount of money.” It’s not about forgetting the budgeting, but about trashing away the numbers in money, and only think at their creative support for your purpose.
