Your Money Mindset

"To be the master of money, you need to be smarter than it. Then money will do as it is told. It will obey you. Instead of being a slave to it, you will be the master of it. That is financial intelligence " Robert Kiyosaki, author Conspiracy of the Rich

Have you ever wondered why money comes so easily to some people, yet others seem to struggle for every penny they earn? The difference between the two types of people often lies in how they think about money and wealth.

How you think about money is the single most important factor that determines whether you are wealthy or not. So, if you want more money in your life it is essential that you develop a Positive Money Mindset.

Your Mindset is the sum total of all your beliefs, values, identity, expectations, attitudes, habits, decisions, opinions and thought patterns about money and what it means to you. Many of our mindsets, are handed down from our families, society, religious authorities and teachers, but we can change our thoughts and mindsets to attract more of whatever it is we want.

If you hold any wrong beliefs about money, or believe that you don't have enough, that thinking can hold you back from ever becoming wealthy. Instead, recognize the power that your thoughts have over the money in your life and embrace it. A good book to read to help you change your mindset about money is Napoleon Hill's Think and Grow Rich. This book explains how your way of thinking can make you wealthy, or keep you from experiencing the riches you desire.

To change your money mindset, you must first recognize that money is not good or bad by itself. It is just a tool. In fact, money is more often used to do good than bad. Think about the wonderful charities that have been able to help people all around the world when they are given large donations of money. Appreciate all the good that money is used for. It is an important part of life and is used to make positive changes in the world. Money should be sought after, not avoided.

Be optimistic about wealth. Money is important in our society. Not having enough can be a very scary thought. But instead of being fearful of money, be optimistic. Visualize yourself having more than enough money to pay your bills and enjoying the finer things in life. What would it feel like to have a certain dollar amount in your bank account? Focus on that image and keep it foremost in your mind.

When you are optimistic about wealth instead of afraid of not having enough, you will be on the path to overcoming adversity and creating wealth. As long as you hold on to negative and incorrect beliefs about money, you will never create the wealth you desire or deserve.

Remove Negative Thoughts.

Recognize that money is abundant. When you were young, you may have been told by your parents that money doesn't grow on trees. If you're holding onto that belief now, your own mindset could be holding you back from attracting money. Money may not grow on trees, but there is an abundant amount of it for everyone, including you. However, if you believe that money is scarce, that belief will keep it far away from you. No wonder we have such a difficult time thinking positively about money!

Many of us are taught to think negatively about money. We're told things like "money is the root of all evil," and you may have even been taught that rich people are greedy and as a result you are subconsciously avoiding wealth and missing out on the great opportunities having money can provide. When someone else has money, don't resent their success. If you have feelings of jealousy, that will only hold you back from achieving your own wealth and success. Instead, be happy for them and remember that there is enough wealth for you too, and your turn will come. Rich people often accumulate their wealth by sharing what they have with others and believing in the idea of abundance.

Giving money away is one way you can develop a positive money mindset. Wanting to hang onto every cent you have is a sign of a stingy mindset and reinforces the idea or scarcity and that there is not enough of it. Giving reinforces the concept of abundance.

By making these changes in how you think about money, you will be on your way to developing a positive money mindset. Once you begin thinking about money in a positive way, you will be on the path to achieving your own wealth.

Wealth Creation Rules to Live By

Here are some wealth creation rules to live by to help you become one of those who will always have more than what you need, instead of someone who never has quite enough.

Be willing to take risks. Realize there is some risk involved in creating wealth, but that anything worth achieving is worth the risk. Some people never experience the fulfillment they crave because they're afraid of failing. Failure isn't something to be feared. Instead of procrastinating and being afraid of failing, plan your actions carefully so you will be prepared no matter what happens.

Take action. Take action where your money is concerned. If you've been waiting for wealth to come along and find you, it's time to start taking action to create wealth instead. If you own a business, be prepared to work harder and offer better services. Take positive steps that will help you create wealth.

Make your money work for you. The wealthy don't keep their money in savings accounts. To protect the money you have and ensure it continues to grow, it should be allocated between conservative investments and some riskier investments. This is how the wealthy use money to create more wealth.
