Living from paycheck to paycheck may seem daunting. It was happy at the start but we get anxious at the end of every month as our money gets super low.
We might think that we can live off with the current salary and wait for the next increment. WHEN? In 3 years?! That’ll be quite some time to wait.
What if there is a faster way? There is! In these times, it’s worth to look into investments in properties, stocks, or businesses. Its alright if you are not sure about what to do – it’s natural when you are at the launching phase. First things first, every positive change starts with a positive mind. This is crucial to be able to achieve financial abundance. Here are 3 ways to cultivate the mindset!
1. ASSOCIATE MONEY WITH POSITIVE THINGS
If you want to live a remarkable life, you must master your emotions, that is, to be able to understand and control them. This works the same for MONEY.
Our wants and needs which is centered from our emotions uses money as the means to obtain what we desire. Relief. Content. Embarrass. Pride. Guilt. These are some of the emotions we associate ourselves to money.
But then again, what if you can use money and produce positive feelings most of the time? This is where your BELIEFS about money comes into place.
“If I have money, I can be with my family on all times.” “I can do whatever I want if I have tons of money.” “I can do an activity as fast as possible if I have money” or “I can have the ultimate wardrobe!”. These are the examples of positive things we should associate ourselves when it comes to attract money in our life.
Tony Robbins, in his book, Money: Master The Game stated that “repetition is the mother of skills“. We can train our mind to be an optimist by repeating positive lines within ourselves. By doing so, achieve a life of financial abundance .
But then again, while you want to be an optimist, there will also be times when you will opt for an avoidance approach. An approach that at least keeps your mentality cushioned – things that might lead to pain. This is where we might say, “If i make money then people will judge me” or “I will be too old to enjoy money” “If I make money then I wont have time to focus being spiritual”. These are the lines we need to avoid saying to ourselves as it will train our subconscious minds not to become the best version of ourselves.
Being in financial abundance is better than being in financial scarcity. More money means you can pursue greater meanings in life beyond our financial means. You can HELP more people in need and who knows, they might be able to achieve what you did and in return – they will help people that used to live like they did. This is what is called the RIPPLE effect.
2. FINANCIAL ABUNDANCE MEANS FREEDOM
Imagine you earn more than what you spend in every month of your life, wouldn’t that be GREAT?
All it takes is discipline and perseverance.
It is as simple as taking a portion of money from your monthly salary and dump it in your investment account. The key is to make sure the amounts compounded every year so that the funds grow bigger by every year. This is a sure way to skyrocket your way to financial freedom – you just have to try!
Now, we are only talking about the passive way to grow your funds. Not the active way yet.
Repeat this every day or every month and see how your figures will grow. The only condition is to keep the funds in the bank account as long as you can without withdrawing it as it will affect the growth rate of the fund. Well, until at least you have hit your targeted amount that you want to accomplish. Achieving financial abundance would be easier.
Always save what you have and in return, invest the differences!
3. IF YOU CAN MAKE $1 THEN YOU CAN MAKE A MILLION MORE!
As mentioned before;
“Repetition is the mother of skills”– Tony Robbins
Let’s say you figured a way to make $1. Why don’t you repeat the same process for another 1 million times?
It make things easier to see and process when you do an activity at one time after another. Take one step at a time. It will reduce your stress and at the same time makes it more bearable to achieve your dreams.
Because you are FOCUSED.
To achieve a dream, you must have goals. Goals are what you do everyday to achieve the ultimate purpose – in this case, called a DREAM.
A dream can be anything. Buying a mansion, become rich to give back to the poor, or as simple as opening a small business. And it may takes a certain amount of funds – for example, $100 a month to collect $1,200 to open a small lemonade drink business. This requires monthly goals that you have to meet to achieve the dream of having $1,200 after a year.
The higher you dream, the higher the price would be.
A part of achieving a dream would be to fail. Good ideas comes from failing. Failing is an inevitable process that every people must face to become successful. But you will regret less in your old days if you have failed in something. Because it means you have at least tried something to fulfill a dream in your life even if it means you have to fail.
But then again,
Fail and fail again until you succeed.
