What you think and believe about money are the deciding factors on whether or not you allow more of it to come into your life. A human mind is so powerful, it can create anything you want. If you have the mind of a rich person, you can create your wealth from scratch or get it all back faster than it took you the first time, even if you lose it all today. On the other hand, if you have a mind conditioned to be poor, no matter what wealth you have today you can lose it all sooner or later.
Knowing the differences in mindset of rich and poor people is the key to unlock the door of success. So let’s start but remember with ‘rich’ and ‘poor’ I am referring to the state of mind.
Rich people believe they create their own destiny; poor people believe they are the slaves of their own destiny
Wealthy people don’t believe in predetermined fate. Instead they believe that life is what they make it. They take full responsibility for their own life and don’t depend on luck. When you keep on thinking that life happens to you, you will lose the power to change things and control your life. A poor man feels like a victim while a wealthy man believes he creates his own destiny. If you want to attain financial abundance think as a rich man would do. Believe that you create your future!
Rich people focus on opportunities; poor people focus on problems
Wealthy people see problems and obstacles as a new opportunity to grow. They focus on solutions and they act on it. Poor people focus on the problems and they keep complaining about them. They squander time whining about their circumstances. Avoid the poor man’s action and start to focus on opportunities.
Rich people have big dreams; poor people have small dreams
Wealthy people set goals that scare them because dreaming is the motivation to success. To be able to achieve big things, you have to dream big. Wealthy people stick to this principle. They do not dream for job with good pay, they create jobs. They aspire for more. Poor people do not aspire for more. They get contented with what they have. Poor people have small dreams but you cannot achieve bigger things if you only have small dreams. There is nothing to lose in dreaming, so why don’t you try it?
Rich people commit to their dreams; poor people dream their dreams
Rich people work hard on their dreams. They commit each day of their lives to reach those goals. Poor people let time pass and don’t act on it, they keep dreaming. You need to work for your goals. Small steps every day are better than just waiting for time to pass without action. The small deeds can accumulate and lead you to the stairs of success.
Rich people play to win; poor people play not to lose
For rich people, life is about taking risk. For them, losing is never an option. They are willing to take the risk to win. Poor people on the other hand are too careful and they always stay on the safe side. They are really afraid to make mistakes. Only those who are willing to take the risk achieve abundance.
Rich people network with the rich, poor people with the poor
Rich people spend time with people who can help them achieve their dreams. They take notes of the secrets to prosperity from the rich people. Poor people think that your wealth depends on your family origin. But actually the people around you have an indirect effect on your ways of thinking.
Rich people are good learners; a poor person says ‘’I know everything”
Life is about learning. Wealthy people know that and they admit that they still need to learn. Poor people believe that they know everything already. If you are not willing to learn, you will never know why rich people become richer and why poor remain poor despite all efforts.
Rich people are leaders; poor people are followers
Wealthy people take the initiative. They decide for themselves and take full responsibility for their decisions. Poor people like to follow the water flows instead of taking the lead. Being a leader, you are in front of the actions. Wealthy people are leaders and leaders are wealthy people.
Rich people have their money work hard for them; poor people work hard for their money
Poor people keep on looking for money to come along. They keep on working and working to earn. Rich people let the money do the work while they are enjoying life. The way to let your money work for you is to know where to invest it.
You cannot change where and which family you are born in, or the circumstances you started out in. But you are in control to alter your future! Take each day as a new beginning to face the challenges that will help you achieve your big dreams. Complaining is a total waste of time. Instead of comparing yourself with others, work on your own life. Getting rich is simple. All you need is the right attitude, mentality and action. Adapt the mentality of the rich and be rich; or otherwise, stay poor with the habits and mindset of the poor.
Imagine your life full of abundance. If you really want to change your poor mindset I recommend you to get the workbook “How to attract more money in your life”. Hit the link below for more information.
