Step 1 on the journey to becoming a Millionaire.
Let’s get right to the point. The real secret to making and having more money is YOUR mindset.
- Do you want to make more money?
- Do you need to make more money?
- Do you want to improve your financial security?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I would tell you that you need to master your mind. How do you do that? You start by making decisions. Now as you’re reading this I am sure there are lots of thoughts popping into your head. Maybe you are having some of the following thoughts:
I could never do that. I have too many bills. Or it’s too late for me to get started. Or my life is a mess I have too many problems. Or I don’t have any time. Or I don’t know how. Or (my favorite), I can’t decide.
Our minds can be our own worst enemies. Words are powerful and the most powerful words are the ones we tell ourselves. We all talk to ourselves. The key is for you to be aware of this and what you are saying. So today start your journey to becoming a millionaire by making decisions. Start mastering your mind! You can start with easy things.
- What do you want for dinner tonight? Instead of “I don’t know. or What do you want? ” say “I would like to have -X.”
- What time can we meet next week? Instead of “I’m not sure. or When are you available?” say “ I am available at – Y”.
- What movie would you like to watch tonight? Instead of “I don’t know? or What do you think?” say “I would like to watch Z.”
You will find yourself answering questions like these all day long. And as you pay attention you will find more often than not, you are answering with “I don’t know …” The big trap! We are so programmed to pass the decision to someone else. Remember it’s ok to say “I don’t know…I mean yes actually I do know. I would like to watch Z.” This might happen for a while.
The hope I have for you is that you’ll get good enough at making small decisions to start to reprogram your mind to remove the “I don’t know”s altogether.
Do this and do it often until it becomes natural and you are well on your way to becoming a millionaire!
