How to Create A Wealthy Mindset

According to Brian Tracy, wealthy people achieve financial independence by developing a wealthy mindset. They spend most time thinking about how to become successful than most poorer people do.

Thinking doesn’t just mean dwelling on certain thoughts or even negative thoughts like most people waste valuable time doing. It goes beyond just what you think. It’s a whole lot of process involved in creating and managing your thinking process. And that’s what the rich do than those who remain poor never explored.

{1} Write Down What You Want

The first thing a wealthy mindset does is to write down what he or she want. Don’t assume you know it or have it in your mind. Putting it down helps you see more of how what you want relates to what you may already have or desired to have.

And by writing it down it forces you to get clear on what, exactly, it is that you want to accomplish. It also plays a huge part in motivating you to complete the tasks necessary for your success without procrastinating.

Why You Should Write Them Down:

  1. Make Them Visible.
  2. Feel Them.
  3. Understand Them.
  4. Take Action.
  5. Share Them.

{2} Envision Your Future

You can only make happen the future you can believe in. Not believing in something is a result of not trusting your ability to make them happen. It’s not really a function of their impossibility but your ability. Because someone may have made them happen before. So, your self doubt doesn’t make anything impossible.

Here’s how to envision your future:

  1. Know who you are.
  2. Consider your goals.
  3. Come up with a plan.
  4. Take the first step.

Envisioning is a process of visualizing your desired future, either by thought, imagery or meditation. You see what’s possible with you to believe in a future you have not yet taken a hold of.

A vision that you didn’t take action on, is not a vision at all. It’s mere wishful thinking. It may also involve doing the following.

What to do to Help You Visualize:

  1. Write your goals down on paper.
  2. Talk to yourself.
  3. Imagine your goals from your personal perspective.
  4. Don’t leave out any juicy details.
  5. Visualize short term, and long-term goals.

{3} Affirm Your Desires

When you see the future you want, affirm it strongly. No impossible dream comes into this world. If you can dream it, you can achieve it. So, when you dream, believe, and it will become a reality some day.

The world system is designed around faith and words. What you believe and say has the highest possibility of occurring. That’s the reason for school, it helps you see yourself for what you were trained for.

A medical doctor believes he has the knowledge to proffer medical solutions because he or she was trained to do so.

Tips on How to Affirm Your Desires:

  1. Say what you desire with strong intention and will power
  2. Say it even without conviction and doubt
  3. Say it out loud and with a lot of self love that you desire for yourself to be happy
  4. Imagine its reality and enjoy it in your mind like you already have it in your hands
  5. Write it down and place it where it will be in view everyday.

{4} Listen to Your Inner Voice

Nothing is more real than the voice within. It holds the power to your doubts or your strong faith. People may tell you that you can’t achieve it or that it’s not possible based on evidence they have seen or know of.

What’s your inner voice saying to you? Are you listening to that voice? Most times the reason you may not be listening to your inner voice is because you don’t have trust in yourself.

According to WellAndGood Blog, below are tips on how to listen to your inner voice:

  1. Create space for your inner voice to come through.
  2. Pay attention to your emotions.
  3. Look for your inner voice patterns.
  4. Set the intention to tune into your inner voice.
  5. Don’t let your mind take over.
  6. Take a moment to pause and breathe into it.
  7. Talk to your confusion.

{5} Take Action And Transform

Taking action is like stepping your feet into the water. The reality of it all sets in. Even if you had doubts, it’s too late now. Your faith will gradually grow with every step you take. You are going to learn more about yourself that you didn’t know before.

What if there are challenges? Of course there will be challenges. But it should help you affirm your strong desire to see it through. Although, that is easier said than done. That is why it pays to have a mentor guiding you. Someone who has done it before to help you stay your faith through it all.

Taken from the ThoughtCatalogue, here is a few ways to learn how to take action.

  1. Meditate. Through meditation we give our minds a mental break.
  2. Understand your fears and defeat them
  3. Realize the importance of failure to teach you what might work
  4. You learn as you go.
  5. Combat your fears with action.
  6. Don’t Forget your goals. (I went against ThoghtCatalogue on this one for a reason).
  7. Avoid instant gratification
  8. Keep taking action.
  9. Take it slowly

Here are 5 Simple Tips to Transform Your Life:

  1. Begin with yourself first.
  2. Commit to continuous self-improvement.
  3. View challenges as opportunities.
  4. Be generous with your wisdom.
  5. Go after your dreams and inspire others to do the same.

{6} Hold The Vision

Retaining your vision especially after many storms of life is the work of genus. Visions don’t always follow a direct route. The journey maybe near but the route it takes you might be far from the direction.

But never compromise your vision. The wealthy mindset thinks beyond the process. It focuses on the destination, regardless of how long the route take him to get there. Know this, you are first a success even before you desire to achieve success.

Tips to your vision into a statement of faith:

  1. Project your dream into the future.
  2. Dream big and focus on success.
  3. Use the present tense and live in your vision
  4. Use clear, concise, jargon-free language.
  5. Infuse it with passion and make it inspiring.
  6. Align it with your business values and goals.

{7} You Are In Control

Don’t ever lose control of your vision. A wealthy mindset stays in control no matter how challenging the times may be. You have to be in control of your life, your destiny or your future at all times.

If you are in control of something, you have the power to make all the important decisions about the way it is run. You decide who’s a part of it, what it should be doing, and when it should be doing it.
