Believe first that you can be financially successful!!!
Do you find yourself always stuck in scarcity? Do you always scramble for money, stressed out about bills, complain about the government stealing money from you and people depending on you for financial help? Do you have a poor person mentality?
If you answered YES to any of the questions above, it’s important to remember that there is still hope.
Not many people I know grew up rich whether that’s actually cash or an abundant money mentality. Now, here is the good news, You can totally break out of your scarcity mentality and create a shift in the energy around you. Just, keep on believing that things can still change for the better.
Here are four ways you can use to change that poor person mentality.
1. Take Control of the Situation. If you put a lot of emphasis on the people around you and blame them for your poverty, you have to realize that you can’t change them. The only person you can change is yourself so that’s where you got to focus on.
2. Appreciate What You Have Right Now. Almost half the world lives on less than 100 pesos per day. Realize that an abundance mindset begins with appreciating what you have right now. Like Oprah said, “Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough.”
3. Get a Money Mantra. Using the law of attraction, have a mantra on hand that you can say. Whenever you’re parting with money whether you’re paying a bill or buying something, say something like this: “There’s always more where that came from.” It seems hard to believe that merely repeating words can change your thoughts and your life, but they can.
Here are some good money mantras you can experiment with:
I always have money.
I am making more money every day.
I am a money magnet.
I am debt free.
4. Build On Your Financial Knowledge. Keep reading books on money, going to seminars, and reading blogs. You’ll learn a lot and actively improve your money mindset. But, it’s not about just reading or listening, you have to actually implement it especially if you want to have money and keep it.
I hope I’ve inspired you and now, I would love to hear from you.
