Ok my friend this is it: Wealth Creation, Step 1, Mindset
The mindset is major important if you want to be wealthy.
As I said in the main wealth creation section, I had to find out the mindset was the first step to riches the hard way by losing my million dollar company.
I blamed the crisis, the social environment, the economy and everything else but myself and my mindset…
…simply because I didn’t know it was wrong, since I had made so much money so young LOL. Turns out though, when you mindset is not right, sooner or later you fail.
Not right: negative, anxious, worried, too serious, self centered, prejudiced or shit like that.
Right: Calm, confident, caring, helping, fun.
I mean, I can’t tell you what is right or wrong, you choose that, I can only share what I’ve experienced and what I know.
Before everything else, making money has to be fun, if you don’t like what you are doing, change something, you can’t push yourself to do what you hate for too long.
I don’t care who you are, how you got to this article, how much money you make, or what you do – if you are not having fun, you have to make that mindset shift and find something better.
Life can’t always be fun, but you have to make the most out of it. And since money is everything (don’t care how it sounds, it is), we have to make the process of making it fun.
If you don’t like your business – sell it, or fail it LOL… whatever, if you don’t like your job – start looking for something else. All the wealthy people around the world love what they do, I love what I do, and this is why I’m rich… and not just financially.
The more experience people gain, the more self centered they become, the more they feel better than others, and the more lonely and unsuccessful they become.
Prejudging mindset can only cause you loss of money, friends or something else important to you. Sometimes people do it just to make what they do (or did) feel right… this does not help either. When you are wrong, you are wrong, when you are right, you are right (you know what I’m talking about, if not, go to a forum and you will see what I mean, most people there are cocky even though they know nothing).
Аlso a big problem, worries will drag you down to the bottom, stop them right now no matter what.
Bad things happen, but worrying about them does not turn them them around.
If it is difficult for you to completely stop worrying, then leave one hour of the day for worrying. This will be your worries hour… pour out all your stress during it, but stop the trouble thinking before and after.
There was this Dire Straights song that said:
Why worry? there should be laughter after pain,
there should be sunshine after rain…
by the way just play it when you worry too much… here:
…or if it’s too old school for you LOL, find a song you like and play it.
I hate it when all those “self development” coaches talk about how to constantly be positive, how to always be happy and bla bla bla… uplifting people sells, that’s why they do it
I personally prefer being real. That’s the key, you can not be positive all the time… sometimes you even have to be negative (in very rare cases though). Being real will make you a very down to earth person.
You can be all positive and at the same time have 5 bucks on you… what’s the point of being positive in this case?
You better get real and make some more. If not, after a month you can still be positive with the same 5 bucks on you.
People confuse faith that one will prevail in the end with the discipline to confront the most brutal facts of current reality, whatever they might be.
Jose Silva’s great video about mindset and why it is so important to think right.
You have to be confident, yet not self centered. People who feel too good about themselves tend to forget about progress, plus no one likes egoists.
Let me know if you liked this article and stay awesome.
