4 Ways to Obtain The Mindset of The Highly Successful

Published

mindset and motivation success

It’s no secret that our thoughts lead to feelings, feelings lead to actions and then actions lead to results. Everything begins with a simple thought we produce in our mind. The mind is nothing more than a big file cabinet. All the information you receive is labeled and stored in various files to retrieve when necessary. And there is a file which we all have labeled as “Money File”

Whenever you get a financial opportunity, you go to your “Money File” and make decisions based on the information in that file. The only thoughts you can have about money is what you store in that file. Your decision about money is based on what you believe as logical, sensible and appropriate for you at that time. The problem is your right choice may not be the successful choice. In fact what you think as the perfect choice for money making may produce poor results.

“In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable.” – Robert Arnott

And that’s how rich people become richer. They store and use all the information that produce success. Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could also think how the rich people think? The first step to get into the mindset of rich people is to know how they really think. They think differently from the poor and middle class people. They think money and that’s why they get money!

Here are five ways you can easily get into the mindset of rich people:

1. Always focus on opportunities instead of obstacles

Do you remember the age-old questions, “Is this glass half empty or half full? The way you describe the glass will determine whether you think positively or negatively. Rich people are positive minded, they focus on opportunities while poor people focus on obstacles. They fear about the potential loss. Rich people look for potential growth in every opportunity and evaluate the rewards they can get from it.

Don’t make choices based on your fears, you will hear your mind telling you, “What if something goes wrong? What if it doesn’t work?” and more often you’ll hear this too, “It won’t work, so abandon the idea”. Instead of these negative thoughts, think like the rich-“It will work and I’ll make sure that it works!” Always expect to succeed, have confidence in your abilities and utilize opportunities as much as possible.

 

2. Play the money game to win

Let’s say you are playing a game. If you choose to defend all the time what are the chances to win the game? You’ll most probably agree with me, none or slim. But astonishingly this is how most people play the money game. Instead of creating abundance of wealth they focus on survival and safeguarding of their money.

Your goal should be creating massive wealth rather than having enough money to pay the bills. Your intentions will determine how much money you’ll make. Don’t guard your money, it doesn’t increase that way. Invest it, take the risks, get reward and that’s how you increase your wealth.

 

3. Associate with positive successful people

Motivate yourself by associating and following successful people. Make them your models, learn how they did it. Know their strategies and techniques to build a success blueprint for yourself. Be grateful that they have succeeded before you. You don’t need to struggle like them to find out the all methods and procedures. Tell yourself, “If they could do it, why can’t I?” Model their inner and outer strategies, then you are set to get the exact same results.

“Surround yourself with people who believe in your dreams, encourage your ideas, support your ambitions, and bring out the best in you.”
Roy Bennett

4. Make yourself bigger than your problems

The journey to getting rich is full of twists, detours, obstacles and challenges. The road is fraught with pitfalls and traps; that’s’ why people prefer not to take that road. In short, they don’t want problems in their life. Rich people don’t try to avoid or get rid of the problem; they choose to grow themselves bigger than the problems.

The bigger problems you handle, the bigger you become. You can then handle much bigger business in the future. Grow yourself to the extent where you can handle any problems that get into the way of creating wealth. Don’t back away from your problems, don’t avoid or complain about it. Be a financial warrior and conquer yourself.

    Niaz thanks for sharing your thoughts. The age old truth about success is that who you hang around is so important. Even if you are naturally a positive person, if everyone around you is negative you will become like them whether you like it or not.
