The Right Frame Of Mind

Getting A Wealth Mindset

Wealth and financial freedom are a far-off dream for many people. For them, it means mansions, gated communities, a fast car, private parties or a pool.

The truly wealthy have family names like Rockefeller or Morgan. It can be easy to accumulate wealth. The thing is, not everyone knows how. The twentieth century has bought a boom of first-time millionaires, many of which do not come from family money.

They make their first million by employing timeless wealth wisdom and secrets only the ultra rich used to know. Fortunately for you, there are dozens, even hundreds of little wealth nuggets you can easily apply to your life to expand your portfolio and double, even triple your net worth.

Being smart with money and becoming wealthy is not rocket science, but for many it looks and feels like hard work. The funny thing is, the fact of it’s very simplicity means that more and more people should know and be doing this. But they are not.

This is because most people do not know how to make money work for them, not the other way around. This is also because making money involves patience and restraint. Everything about our culture advocates otherwise. But do you want to end up broke by the time you retire? Do you constantly fend off phone calls from creditors? Do you sigh and shake your head at your bank balance? No one wants to spend their life waiting for payday and watching money flutter away the moment bills come in the mail.

Creating the Wealth Mindset

The wealthy think differently. This is true and an inescapable fact. The other thing is that there is a poor mindset and a wealthy one.

The rich have a different approach to life. They plan, risk and manage their money in a different manner. They also have a positive attitude towards life and opportunities.

The first and most important step to true financial freedom is creating this mindset for yourself.  This also involves a no-holds barred, honest look at your life and assets.

Creating a starting place is as important as moving forward, so it does not matter if you start with $1 or $1,000,000. It is all about the mindset and the will to move forward to creating your wealth.

Reaching Your Goals

To reach one goal, you have to make smaller goals and reach them. Every little step you take, every penny you save matters. Use smaller goals as stepping stones. For example, to save that $500,000, one needs to set aside $5000 every single month, invest or cut down expenses.

Manifest your financial destiny by setting your subconscious towards specific goals. Create dream charts by cutting out pictures of your dream status or words that empower to help fuel your subconscious and get you
to where you want to go. Never underestimate the power of your will and mind. Wealthy people never say they cannot do it, they think of ways so that they can.

Write it down. Seeing what you want, and getting what you want involves seeing it in black and white.

It is true what they say, you can achieve anything once you put your mind to it.

Deciding How Much You Need

It is important in life for a person to know exactly what it is that they wish to obtain or exactly what goals they would like to accomplish. The same goes for obtaining an abundance of finances. If you wander down the path of success blind and without aim you are sure to get lost.That is why it is important to have specific goals in place that will act as your guide while you take the journey towards success.

Before you make any decisions on exactly how much you need, it is advised that you read the following chapter because it contains valuable information that will greatly help you. Keep in mind, it is important to determine how much you need rather than how much you want.

When you are making a plan for financial success, it is important that you determine exactly how much finances you need to be pulling in. I do not mean a general ball park figure, I mean an exact number.

You can figure this number out by listing down all of your expenses as well as giving yourself some breathing room for unexpected situations that may occur. You need to picture yourself in the future, what do you see?

In order for you to accomplish what you see in this vision, it is important that you set financial goals because they will serve as your motivators. You may want to start with smaller goals as this will help you build your self-confidence in the long run and this will make the harder goals much easier.

Add Up The Bills:

The first and probably most important step to creating a financial abundance is to figure out what your monthly expenses are. It will be impossible to build wealth if you are spending more money on expenses than you are bringing in. No matter if you are a manager for a business or are self-employed, all expenses need to be accounted for, down to the paper clips and staples. This will help you determine if your current set of circumstances will benefit or hinder your journey to financial abundance.

Are You Earning Enough?

One question that you are going to ask yourself, whether you want to hear the answer or not, is am I making enough money? Although it may be hard, if you are not making enough money, you may have to give some things up in life for a short period of time. Even those who are not in financial strain should look over their daily lives and think of the things that they do not really need. You will be surprised by how much of a difference you can make by choosing to buy a 99 cent coffee in the morning rather than a $5.99 Starbucks coffee. If you analyze your current set of financial circumstances and come to the realization that you are not making enough money, it is definitely time to do something about it!

What Do You Need The Finances for?

Another important question you must ask yourself is, what do I plan on doing with my finances. Having a plan for what you will use your finances for will motivate you as well as set guidelines for what you purchase.

For instance, if you know that you have important business expenses coming up or maybe even a vacation to Hawaii, you will be more likely to be responsible with your spending which will lead to you creating a financial abundance. It is also very important to prioritize. You must take care of life’s essentials before worrying about having extravagant things like jet skis and sports cars.

It is also advised that you create a spreadsheet or some other type of visual reference to track your expenses and earnings. It is easy to forget about something that you cannot see so it is important that you keep this spreadsheet in a location where you will see it multiple times throughout the day.

The process of determining how much cash you need should not be taken lightly or rushed. It is a very serious step in the process of creating a financial abundance. Keep in mind these tips and begin practicing these methods and you should start to see improvements in no time.

Tips To Bringing Financial Abundance

Financial abundance is something that all people wish to have. It is true that wealth, by itself, cannot create happiness. However, having a financial abundance will surely make things more relaxed in your life and a much less stressful.

Keep in mind, the process of creating a financial abundance can be quite exhausting, but if you approach this task with the right set of tools, you will be sure to succeed.

Before you begin your journey of creating an abundance of wealth for yourself, it is crucial that you are aware of the basics and fully understand them. In a way it is like when a child starts school, if they were to skip kindergarten and first grade they would likely be lost when it came to the more advanced work. Beginning with the basics is important because the basics serve as your foundation. Every strong structure has a strong foundation, so if you want to be a strong individual you must start with a strong foundation.

Examine yourself:

When you are trying to build a financial abundance it is very important that you examine yourself. I do not mean that you should examine your looks, what I am saying is that you need to analyze your personality traits. You also need to think about what things you are good at as well as the things you can improve on. It is also very important that you examine your attitude towards the world and the vibe you project to others. Also, it is important to know your mental and emotional state. Although all of this may not seem related to the subject of financial abundance, it is. For example, having a negative outlook on life and projecting a negative vibe to the world can push people away from you which can in turn close doors and opportunities for you. Another example could be if a person is in a negative emotional state. While this individual is in this state they will surely hinder their own success with thoughts of self-doubt and low self-worth. One of the most important steps to obtaining a financial abundance is to view yourself as valuable.

Stop Negative Thinking:

Another important basic you will need in order to obtain success and a financial abundance is to stop your negative thought processes. Ask yourself, do you really think making negative comments about yourself or your circumstances is going to make things better? It is important to always think positively as this will bring good things into your life. If you constantly sit around and think that something is too hard to do, in the end you will mentally trick yourself into believing this. On the contrary, if you tell yourself that a task will be easy to tackle, it will likely not present a challenge for you.

Know the Meaning of True Financial Abundance:

Many people have the common thinking error that financial abundance simply means having a lot of money. This is not the case! If you wish to have true financial abundance you need to understand that it does not stop at just having a lot of money. True financial abundance means having responsibility, working hard, sacrifices, and in some cases blood, sweat, and tears. You need to understand that without proper discipline, even if you do one day possess an abundance of finances, you will surely lose it.

Understand That Wealth by Itself Will not Create Happiness:

A common thinking error that many people make is to think that money itself means happiness. This is not true, and it is important for you to know that in some people’s situations money actually created more stress and unhappiness in their lives. To be truly successful and feel content in life you will need more than just a financial abundance. You will need a well-rounded set of skills, healthy relationships, strong social standings, and a positive outlook if you want to be truly happy while obtaining a financial abundance.

What Motivators Influence You?

Motivators have a big impact in our life. These different types of motivators are unique in its own way. Learn more about motivation and decide which one of them is your motivator.

What drives people to do the things that they do? Why are some people successful while others are failures? The right answer for this probably lies in their motivations.

Even from an early age, you are already aware that motivation is what prompts you to learn and exhibit various kinds of behavior, stimulating you to accomplish new successful feats. And when you mature and grow older while going through the different stages of your life, you also get to learn the things that motivate you and the things that don’t.

Motivation Defined

In general, motivation is being defined as the force which compels people to action. This is what drives you to work hard and pushes you to succeed. It greatly influences your behavior as well as your ability to accomplish goals.

Motivation comes in different forms, with every single one of them having an influence on a person’s behavior. No specific kind of motivation works for all people. Individuals have different personalities in the same way that the kind motivation that has an effect on their behavior also does, too.

Types of Motivation

Fear – This kind of motivation comes with consequences and this is usually used when another kind of motivation, the incentive motivation, becomes a failure. Negative consequences or punishment are forms of this motivation. This is usually used for motivating the students in educational system and is also used in professional settings for motivating employees. When rules are broken or the set goal was not achieved, you will be penalized in some way.

Incentive – This form of motivation is one that involves rewards, either in the form of money or not. A lot of people are driven when they know that they will be getting a reward when they reached a goal or target. Promotions and bonuses are great examples of this kind of motivation.

Growth – The need to improve yourself is a kind of internal motivation. The burning desire of knowing yourself more as well as the outside world is something that can be a strong motivation form. Humans by nature will always seek to grow and learn. Motivation for growth is seen in a person’s yearning for change. A lot of people are wired by their personalities or upbringing to always look for change either in their knowledge or internal or external environment. Stagnation is considered as both undesirable and negative.

Achievement – Also called drive for competency, achievement motivation is where you are driven to attain your goals and take on new challenges. It is when you want to improve your skills and prove your competency not only to others but also to yourself. In general, this feeling of achievement and accomplishment is something that has an intrinsic nature.

Social – A lot of people are motivated by different social factors. It can actually be the desire to be accepted or belong to a certain peer group or the desire to relate to other people in your environment or the world as a whole. You have this innate need of feeling connected with others, and the need for affiliation and acceptance. A passionate and genuine desire or contributing and making a different in other people’s lives can also be another form of this social motivation. When you have the longing of making a contribution to the world around you, this is a sign that social factors motivate you.

Power – Power motivation can either be in the form of desire of controlling other people or desire for autonomy. You want to have control over your life and make the choices. You strive for your ability of directing the way that you live now and the way that your life is going to unfold in the future. Also, some people aspire of controlling others around them. Some people have a stronger desire for this compared to the rest. In some instances, this power craving can make people exhibit immoral, illegal or harmful behavior. In some situations, the longing for power is as simple as the desire of affecting others’ behavior. It is when you just want people to do what you want based on your timetable and how you want things to be done.

By determining your motivators, you will be able to pinpoint the specific type of motivation that will be most effective when it comes to inspiring the wanted behavior either in yourself or in other people.

Reaching your Goals: Self-Improvement and Success

PromiseYourself

Recognize your own path – when it comes to reaching your goals and improving your life, you need to be the leader. You are in control of what you want and your goals should come down to you and you alone. Just because your Dad wants you to be a lawyer and your Mom wants you to have 5 children does not mean this is what you have to do- it’s your life and thus, you are the boss.

Disassociate yourself from negativity – in the same way positive thoughts lead to positive results, negative thoughts leads to negative results. Negativity may be all around you- bitchy co-workers; unhappy neighbors; a depressing partner. Disassociate yourself from those types of people. You are in a happy, positive place – no negativity allowed.

Define your goals clearly – goals are what make life worth living. Think long and hard about what you want to accomplish and how you are going to get there. Make steps, include financial costs and put in as much detail as possible – the more defined your goals are, the easier they will be to achieve (and the more rewarding when you get there).

Push jealously aside – when you watch someone on a parallel path reaching their goals a lot sooner, it can be hard to sit back and be happy for them. But this is what you are going to have to do. Getting rid of this envy and resentment is a big hurdle in improving your self. But, once you overcome these feelings, you are a lot closer to reaching a state of Zen-like success.

Use visual reminders as boosters – being able to clearly see your goal can help motivate you and keep you focused on your game plan. Many people will post a picture of their ‘dream body’ on the fridge when they are trying to lose weight. Others will use their ‘dream car’ as their computer screen saver at work when those tough days get them down. A visual reminder can boost your motivation and drive to succeed.

See yourself at the end – as mentioned above, visualization is vital to reach your goal and improve your self. This is why it’s important to visualize yourself there. See yourself fitting into that size 10. Feel the breeze on your cheeks as you drive that sports car. Seeing is believing.

Use timelines – tracking your success can help you put your goal into perspective and see how far you’ve already come. It’s important for self-improvement that you recognize your feats and be proud of what you have doing, or are planning to do.

Reward yourself on the way – be happy with your progress. Whether your goal will take you twenty days or twenty years doesn’t matter- the important thing is that you are doing it. You are getting there. To keep yourself motivated every step of the way, you need to reward yourself with small treats. Be proud of how far you have come and prepare for the journey ahead.

Make room for failure – it can’t be a smooth road all the time- there has to be plenty of bumps along the way. In fact, it is these bumps that make the road worth traveling. Failure is a big part of our lives and we need to learn to live, love and laugh at failure rather than give in to it. Henry Ford once said that every failed attempt is just another opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. Failure is experience and experience is power.

Positive affirmations can be used throughout the day anywhere and at anytime you need them, the more you use them the easier positive thoughts will take over negative ones and you will see benefits happening in your life. An affirmation is a simple technique that is used to change negative self-talk that we are rarely even aware of doing, into looking at your life with a more positive attitude.

The trashcan technique

If you have negative thoughts write them down on a scrap of paper, screw the paper up into a ball and throw it into the trashcan, by doing this you are telling yourself these thoughts are nothing but rubbish and that’s where they belong.

The meditation technique

Find somewhere quiet where you able to relax for 5 or 10 minutes close your eyes and let your mid empty of all thoughts and feelings. Begin to repeat your affirmation to yourself over and over again while concentrating on the words you are repeating and believe in what you are saying.

Building Inner Strength

Unconsciously, we are forming habits every moment of our lives. Some are habits of a desirable nature; some are those of a most undesirable nature. Some, though not so bad in themselves, are exceedingly bad in their cumulative effects, and cause us at times much loss, much pain and anguish, while their opposites would, on the contrary, bring as much peace and joy, as well as a continually increasing power.

We have it within our power to determine at all times what types of habits shall take form in our lives? In other words, is habit-forming, character building, a matter of mere chance, or have we it within our own control? We have, entirely and absolutely. “I will be what I will to be,” can be said and should be said by every human soul.

After this has been bravely and determinedly said, and not only said, but fully inwardly realized, something yet remains. Something remains to be said regarding the great law underlying habit-forming, character building; for there is a simple, natural, and thoroughly scientific method that all should know.

A method whereby old, undesirable, earth-binding habits can be broken, and new, desirable, heaven lifting habits can be acquired, a method whereby life in part or in its totality can be changed, provided one is sufficiently in earnest to know and, knowing it, to apply the law.

Thought is the force underlying all. And what do we mean by this? Simply this: Your every act – every conscious act – is preceded by a thought. Your dominating thoughts determine your dominating actions. In the realm of our own minds we have absolute control, or we should have, and if at any time we have not, then there is a method by which we can gain control, and in the realm of the mind become thorough masters. In order to get to the very foundation of the matter, let us look to this for a moment. For if thought is always parent to our acts, habits, character, life, then it is first necessary that we know fully how to control our thoughts.

Here let us refer to that law of the mind which is the same as is the law in Connection with the reflex nerve system of the body, the law which says that whenever one does a certain thing in a certain way it is easier to do the same thing in the same way the next time, and still easier the next, and the next, and the next, until in time it comes to pass that no effort is required, or no effort worth speaking of; but on the opposite would require the effort.

The mind carries with it the power that perpetuates its own type of thought, the same as the body carries with it through the reflex nerve system the power which perpetuates and makes continually easier its own particular acts. Thus a simple effort to control one’s thoughts, a simple setting about it, even if at first failure is the result, and even if for a time failure seems to be about the only result, this will in time, bring him to the point of easy, full, and complete control.

Each one, can grow the power of determining, controlling his thought, the power of determining what types of thought he shall and what types he shall not entertain. Always keep this in mind, that every earnest effort along any line makes the end just a little easier for each succeeding effort, even if, apparent failure is the result of the earlier efforts. This is a case where even failure is success, for the failure is not in the effort, and every earnest effort adds an increment of power that will eventually accomplish the end aimed at. We can, then, gain the full and complete power of determining what character, what type of thoughts we entertain.

Here are some examples. There is a man, the cashier of a large mercantile establishment, or cashier of a bank. In his morning paper he reads of a man who has become suddenly rich, has made a fortune of half a million or a million dollars in a few hours through speculation on the stock market. Perhaps he has seen an account of another man who has done practically the same thing lately. He is not quite wise enough, however, to comprehend the fact that when he reads of one or two cases of this kind he could find, were he to look into the matter carefully, one or two hundred cases of men who have lost all they had in the same way.

A negative thought can be put out of the mind easier and more successfully, not by dwelling upon it, but by throwing the mind on to some positive object. This may be, for example, the ideal of full and perfect self-mastery, or it may be something of a nature entirely distinct from the thought which presents itself, something to which the mind goes easily and naturally. This will in time become the absorbing thought in the mind, and the danger is past. This same course of action repeated will gradually grow the power of putting into the mind those objects of thought one most desires. The result will be that as time passes the negative thoughts will present itself less and less, and when it does present itself it can be put out of the mind more easily each succeeding time, until the time comes when it can be put out without difficulty, and eventually the time will come when the thought will enter the mind no more at all.

There is nothing more true in connection with human life than that we grow into the likeness of those things we contemplate. Literally and scientifically and necessarily true is it that “as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The “is” part is his character. His character is the sum total of his habits. His habits have been formed by· his conscious acts; but every conscious act is, as we have found, preceded by a thought. And so we have it – thought on the one hand, character, life, and destiny on the other. And simple it becomes when we bear in mind that it is simply the thought of the present moment, and the next moment when it is upon us, and then the next, and so on through all time.

One can in this way attain to whatever ideals he would attain to. Two steps are necessary: first, as the days pass, to form one’s ideals; and second, to follow them continually, whatever may arise, wherever they may lead him. Always remember that the great and strong character is the one who is ever ready to sacrifice the present pleasure for the future good.

In this, however, we will find the highest pleasure, for in this the only real pleasure lies. He who would find it by any short cuts, or by entering upon any other paths, will inevitably find that his last state is always worse than his first; and if he proceed upon paths other than these he will find that he will never find real and lasting pleasure at all.

Each of us must work out his own problems. Each must grow the insight that will enable him to see what the causes are that have brought the unfavorable conditions into his life; each must grow the strength that will enable him to face these conditions, and to set into operation forces that will bring about a different set of conditions.

We might help one another by way of suggestion, by way of bringing to one another a knowledge of certain higher laws and forces — laws and forces that will make it easier to do that which we want to do. The doing, however, must be done by each one for himself. And so the way to get out of any conditioning we have got into, either knowingly or inadvertently, is to take time to look the conditions squarely in the face, and to find the law whereby they have come about. And when we have discovered the law, the thing to do is not to rebel against it, not to resist it, but to go with it by working in harmony with it.

Being Grateful

Is being grateful part of your daily routine? Do you say “Thank You” for even the simplest things that you receive? If not, then, it is never too late for you to finally realize the essence of being grateful for all the things in your life.

The True Essence of Being Grateful

Whether you feel angry, moody, jealous or depressed recently or you feel that your life is full of negativity at this very moment, it is really never too late for you to enjoy the numerous benefits that being grateful has to offer.

In fact, you can take a few minutes any time and be thankful for the things that exist in your life, good or bad, happy or sad, for these can all make you grow into the kind of person that you are.

Seeing through the bad times and still being thankful might not really be easy but after you have surpassed them and you look back at your life’s darkest moments, you will surely appreciate the thing that you got from it = a tougher skin, a useful lesson or even just the mere experience which can help you in making better choices in the near future.

So, what are the benefits that you can get when you are grateful?

This helps you to be in the present, allowing you to notice the things that you have and stopping in order to acknowledge all of them. It can be as simple as having a pizza for lunch, the company of a classmate, or even the ability to hear.

Being grateful can generate good vibes. When applied to positive thinking, quantum physics state that your thoughts’ vibration can modify and affect the reality that surrounds you. It has been said that the initial 17 seconds of your thoughts are the most powerful, creating sufficient energy needed for starting attracting the things you are thinking of to come to your life.

When you are grateful, you have the power to change your mood almost immediately from negative into positive. Positive energy and good feelings arise once you start to acknowledge the things you are thankful for. However, there are some instances when your negative emotions start ruling you and affecting your mood. During these cases, it can be a bit hard for you to be actually grateful for anything.

When this situation befalls you, just think of this thought: things can always be much worst.
Whatever kind of circumstances you might be in, there is a chance that these can become way more difficult than what you are in right now. Be thankful that you are not in that “worst” part and try looking at things in a more positive light.

For instance, your budget probably doesn’t allow you to get a new pair of shoes but still, you have 5 other pairs when the other girl in your class doesn’t even have one.

You will finally be able to see the true essence of being grateful once you come to the realization that you can actually use your thankful feelings to achieve the things that you want. Be thankful today and expect for more blessings tomorrow.
