Give Yourself Permission to Think Rich (And Increase Your Wealth)
It’s time to think like a rich person. If having a poverty mindset hasn’t increased your abundance, you need to change tactics. Studies show being rich won’t necessarily make you happy. Being poor, however, definitely increases misery and hardship. Therefore, given a choice, why not be wealthy and get rid of the stress that comes from money worries? The first thing to understand is, wealthy people have a particular way of thinking. Their thoughts translate into action and give them a positive attitude that attracts prosperity. To be like them, you need to adopt a similar state of mind.
Set no limits on wealth!
Unknowingly, you might have put limits on the amount of money you have in your bank account. Your beliefs can hold you back from achieving financial success. For instance, if you think you want a comfortable life with just enough money to pay your bills, you’re stopping yourself from raising the bar. Rich people want to be rich. Don’t settle for limited funds.
Choose to break free from limiting beliefs about how much prosperity you want and how much you can earn. Your beliefs show in your behavior. Imagining you want enough money to scrape by stops you trying to increase your wealth. You’ll always aim for less money than you could earn, and that’s what you’ll get.
Likewise, drop ideas about being wealthy as the opposite of being spiritual. Some of the richest folk on the planet are spiritual leaders and philanthropists. They meditate, go on retreats, and give to charity. The more wealth you have, the better equipped you are to change the environment in a big way. In other words, rather than sending out the vibration of love to people in need, you can send them food when they are starving.
Know you are in control of your life!
Think like a wealthy person and you will understand you are in charge of your life. The poverty mentality says “life pushes me around.” The rich mentality says “I create my life.” People who wish to get out of the poverty rut often think they are at the mercy of events they can’t change. Thinking they have no control narrows their perspective. With blinkered vision, they can’t see opportunities to climb out of the rut.
If you want to be affluent, you need to take responsibility for your finances. When events seem to be against you, don’t give up and sink into despondency. Think like a rich person; select the most profitable response to situations. Use failure as a stepping stone and learn from mistakes instead of letting them drag you down.
What are your aims? Do you dream of being able to pay off a mortgage before you die or of owning a castle outright? Plenty of people picture small successes. They reach for a bite of the apple without considering they could own the orchard. Expand your vision of the future and think and dream big.
List your goals, and then rewrite them. Make them massive. Expand your dreams, and your mind will open wide. You’ll see possibilities and potential all around you. You’ll be a step close to thinking like a rich person.
Change your attitude to rich people!
Are you suspicious of rich people? Maybe you think they’re mean, greedy, or have huge egos. You might also be envious of their prosperity and imagine they are more gifted than you. If so, you need to alter how you see wealthy people. After all, you want to be one of them, don’t you?
Instead of being jealous when you notice people are wealthy, get excited! The fact they’ve become rich is proof you can as well and not a sign they’re better than you. Don’t be afraid to socialize with rich people too. Once you get to know them, you’ll see you have things in common. Additionally, they can be useful contacts from whom you can learn.
Toot your horn!
Have you noticed the people you respect and have the most confidence in have high self-esteem? Leaders, which rich people usually are, promote themselves. They show and tell the world how terrific they are without considering failure. If they thought too much about what could go wrong, they might not succeed.
Toot your horn with self-promotion when you get the chance. Don’t hang back, imagining it’s shameful to shine. Do you think all poor people are talentless? Of course not. Many never get rich, however, because they hide their skills.
Do you accept compliments with grace? Do you refrain from pointing out your perceived flaws? Good, you’re starting to think like a rich person. If not, begin now. Don’t engage in depreciating talk that dents your sense of worth and makes other see you as low-grade.
People who long to be rich often hang back from gaining prosperity. They undervalue themselves and engage in depreciating talk, imagining wealthy folk as better or worse than them. Additionally, people often stay in a poverty rut because they dream small. They also limit their success with unhelpful beliefs. They think they can’t make positive changes in their lives that influence wealth. If you want to be prosperous, adjust the way you think and act. Give yourself permission to be rich. As a result, you’ll open your mind to abundance and attract more of it into your world.
