Money Making Mentality – 4 Mind Habits to Increase Your Money

Money Making Mentality

What making money mentality do you need to increase your income? Design your financial freedom, see opportunities, and know your money scripts.

What mental mindset do you need to increase your wealth? Your mental model greatly determines the amount of money you make. The way you think about money is a result of your thoughts and other people’s ideas. You can let any random idea affect your money making mentality, or you can build it intentionally and by design.

Having a correct money mindset is important if you want to improve the quality of your life. Without a money mental model that is right, you can become stuck being poor and feeling lack for a long time. A healthy mindset about money can bring you not only a high income, but also joy, satisfaction, and an inner sense of peace.

I want to share the making money mentality that I believe is correct. The following points I take from my experience, other people’s knowledge, and what I observe from successful people. You can follow these ideas about money and add your thoughts to create a mindset that suits you.

1. Design Your Financial Freedom

Robert Kiyosaki, author of the Rich Dad Poor Dad book series, defines financial freedom as being able to live at your current lifestyle without working. If you have a steady source of income without you having to work, and the cost of your living is less than that income, then you have infinite financial freedom. Of course, that assumes your source of income will always make money and you don’t increase your cost of living.

Financial freedom can’t happen by chance. You don’t stumble upon a steady source of passive income. You have to work and build one. In other words, you must be responsible and design your financial freedom with thought and intention. This money mentality is crucial and many successful people think with this mindset.

First, you need to define your measure of freedom. You can count your living cost and figure out how much money you need to achieve freedom. Since you will most likely improve your living, you will need to continuously plan to increase your income too.

Don’t worry about what other people plan or what they have achieved. As long as you hit your goal of making money more than your living cost, you are successful and happy. You can set a time for when you want to reach your goal, and you can set your long-term goals, such as making enough money to buy a home. Big goals can inspire big action, but they can also overwhelm you, so be careful and find the balance that works for you.

2. Develop a Prosperity-Aware Consciousness

You might be living with a survival-oriented consciousness. It means that you are dominated by ideas and feelings related to struggle and scarcity. Feeling constantly threatened by your environment isn’t healthy for your mind and body. You need to begin to develop a prosperity-oriented awareness to increase the amount of money you make.

A scarcity mindset can come from what you learn and listen to in life. It can come from traumatic experiences you don’t realize you have. The effect of thinking in scarcity is that you don’t ever take risks that can create a wonderful result in your life. You also become unaware of the opportunities available in your environment that could enrich you.

I learn from Bob Proctor that wealthy people have different eyes. They can see opportunities that are abundant in our society. They view problems as chances to create new products or processes that can become very profitable and lucrative. In my experience, there is always a “generational opportunity” every decade that can make us a wild amount of wealth.

Think about the birth of the internet. Though the dotcom bubble burst wrecked many people’s savings, it was also a great opportunity to multiply your wealth very rapidly. Even after the bubble burst, great companies thrived and became the biggest businesses today. The internet also brought opportunities where you can make a lot of money if you learn how to harness its power and benefits.

3. Discover Your Conflicting Money Scripts

We all have money scripts, the way we think and feel about money. They are called scripts because they play over and over in our mind. We can have empowering money scripts that help us to move forward and make money, or we could be controlled by discouraging scripts that make us feel fear.

It’s difficult for you to hold on to the money you make if you have a conflicting money script. If you don’t feel safe holding much money, you may feel urged to spend it as soon as possible. Your script may make you feel that you don’t deserve money, and therefore you become reluctant to ask for a salary raise or charge your client.

Finding what money scripts you have is best done with a friend or a private coach. A second person can help to dig your beliefs and give a different opinion about what you think. You can also try money hypnosis to plant positive money scripts. Simply understanding what conflicting money scripts you have can give you clarity about what you need to believe instead.

4. Create a Budget or Financial Plan

Making a budget is common sense, but making it and following its rules isn’t common practice. When you follow a budget, it helps you to spend only what you need and save money. Saving money is the first step before you can think about expanding your financial plan.

Following a budget can become a game that you enjoy. Making a game out of life, also known as gamification, is one way to make budgeting fun. You can give yourself small rewards when you successfully follow your money rules for a week, a month, or a quarter of a year.

The challenge with making a budget is that you don’t want to reduce the quality of your lifestyle. There are probably many parts of your living cost that you can cut or eliminate entirely, but it’s mentally difficult to do. You can overcome this barrier by budgeting one aspect of your living before you move on to budget other aspects. Perhaps you can begin by planning how much entertainment spending you want each month.

Those are the four ideas that comprise a money making mentality. You ought to design your financial freedom with purpose and intention, practice seeing opportunities around you and seizing them, looking within to see if you have conflicting beliefs that get in your way, and creating a budget or plan to control your income and expenses. Using this money making mentality, I believe that you can both cut your costs and boost your income.

DreamBuilder With Mary Morrissey: Live a Life You Love

Mary Morrissey is launching the DreamBuilder program together with a free e-book and video series to help you live the life you truly love.

I have been following Mary Morrissey for a few years. The first time I knew about her was when I did a program from Bob Proctor. They created a program together that was my first program I did to help me become a better person than I was at that time.

Since then, I’ve been following Mary when she launches her Dream Builder program. It’s a program that she launches once every year, and many people join it. This year, she is launching the program together with a free e-book and video series that helps us to achieve a life we truly love living.

Two Hidden Signals the Universe is Sending You

The first video in her series talks about two hidden signals that the Universe is sending us. When we can listen to these two signals, we can learn what we truly want in our lives. The two signals that we receive are longing and discontent.

Discontent is a signal that pushes you towards what you want (or away from what you don’t want). If you’re discontent about (don’t like) something, it’s a sign to get it out of your life. When we eliminate what we don’t want in our lives, we can focus our energy on what we do want.

However, be careful when identifying what you’re discontent about. You may not like something, but it could be good for you (like exercise or networking with people). If it can lead to a good outcome, it’s not discontent you’re feeling – it’s merely discomfort. Discontent applies to what’s in your life that can lead to bad or unwanted outcomes.

Longing is a signal that pulls you towards what you want. If discontent is a signal that’s behind you, then longing is a signal that’s in front of you. We long for the things we wish are in our lives, such as good health, intimate relationships, and freedom from financial worry.

What I am discontent about is spending my energy on aspects of my business that don’t create income. I am still working in my business instead of working on my business. I know that I need to delegate or build a system, but I fear that I don’t have the cash reserve to implement it.

What I feel a longing for is being able to express my ideas through writing. I want to write deep ideas that I believe are important and valuable to share with people. But that activity takes time away from working on my business, and it doesn’t make me money – yet.

Listening to these two signals give me the sign that I need to work on my business so that I have the time to write deep ideas I want to share (or perhaps find a way to combine both of them?).

The #1 Most Powerful Question

In the second video, Mary shares that she has learned through experience that “everything is created twice.” Everything is created in the mind first as thought before it becomes a reality. We must have the correct thoughts first before it becomes what we want in our lives.

The most powerful question to ask is “What do I love?”. When we know what we love, it becomes a thought that can become a reality. Instead of asking why is my life not the way I want it to be, we should focus on how we want it to be, or how we love it.

What I love is helping people solve their problems by sharing with them correct ideas. It’s why I made this blog in the first place. I often imagine scenarios where I speak on stage delivering ideas that help people breakthrough problems in their lives. Another way to do that is through writing deep ideas.

What You Must Do to Create the Life You Love

In the third video, Mary says that what you must do to create the life you love is make a decision. Some people want to live a life they desire, but they make no decisions. Nothing can happen before you make a decision, but once you make a decision, then any possibility can happen.

What may prevent you from making a decision is fear, doubt, and worry. Mary calls these feelings the biggest three obstacles towards achieving your dreams. It’s normal to feel fear, doubt, and worry when you are trying to change your life to be better than it is. But Mary says we shouldn’t give in to our fear, doubt, and worry. Instead, we can feel them and still take action – make a decision.

One exercise Mary says we can use to free ourselves from fear, doubt, and worry is to notice what is possible in our lives. We can place our attention on whatever we want. If we place it on what we fear, then we increase our feeling of fear. Instead, place our attention on what we want and what is possible. Our mind will begin to see what possibilities can happen that help us create the life we desire.

I am not sure what decision I need to make to grow my business further. Right now, I am maybe facing a paradox of too many decisions that I can take. I still feel fear, doubt, and worry because what I choose can lead to a dead-end or end up being a ‘waste’ of time and energy. But if I don’t make a decision, I’ll get stuck and waste time and energy anyway – so it’s time to make a decision.

Mary’s Dream Builder program is currently open for enrollment. You can watch all three videos from Mary’s Dream Builder series using the link below. You can learn more about her program and how it can help you create a life you desire – whether it’s starting a dream business or increase your income.

Paradigm Shift with Bob Proctor – Triple Your Profit?

There’s a reason why we haven’t achieved our big goals. As mentioned before, it’s not because we don’t know what to do; it’s because we don’t do what we know to do. There is a difference between knowing what we should do and actually doing it. The way to reach our big goals isn’t to know how to reach it; it’s to take the action necessary to reach it.

In a previous seminar, Bob Proctor talked about how to set goals and achieve them. One of the steps to achieve our big goals is to build the right paradigm. Our paradigm not only affects how fast we achieve our goals; it also affects what goals we can achieve. A big paradigm allows us to achieve big goals.

What Are Paradigms?

Bob Proctor says that the mind consists of two parts:

  • The first part is the intellectual mind. This is the mind that gathers information and facts.
  • The second part is the subjective mind. This mind is affected by our genetics and environment.

The results that we want are determined by our behavior. In the previous post, we talked about a formula for achieving goals. The formula is that our paradigm determines our behavior and our behavior affects our results.

Paradigm → Behavior → Results

In terms of our mind, our behavior isn’t determined by our intellectual mind; it’s determined by our subjective mind. The subjective mind is shaped by our genetics and our environmental upbringing. Over time, the subjective mind develops a pattern that we adopt as our paradigm.

If you currently have results that you don’t like or don’t want, it’s because of a ‘bad’ pattern. We may receive this bad pattern or paradigm from the time we grew up. Paradigms are passed down from generation to generation, whether they are ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Another word for paradigm is belief.

If you have ‘bad’ results right now, ask yourself what is it I belief? Where did I get that belief? Asking these questions is the first step to changing your paradigm or shifting it so you can reach big goals.

How to Shift Your Paradigm

Here is a 31-minute webinar where Bob Proctor talks about how to change your paradigm:

The way to get the results you want is to shift your paradigm.

Results you don’t want → Paradigm shift → Results you want

And the way to shift your paradigm is to first recognize the ‘bad’ paradigm, and change it. Bob Proctor is holding a live seminar on the topic of Paradigm Shift. The seminar can help you get to the cause of the ‘bad’ behavior that is getting you ‘bad’ results.

Bob says there are only two ways to change our paradigm:

  1. One is through constant repetition
  2. The second is through emotional impact

In other words, there are two ways to change our lives. One is to constantly work on it, little by little, day by day. The second is to wait for disaster to occur in a way that we are ‘shocked’ into change. An example would be the loss of a loved one that makes our lives change dramatically. If you ask me, I prefer the first method of working constantly on a goal rather than being ‘forced’ into it.

One exercise to build a paradigm for wealth building is by writing and rewriting affirmations:

I’m so happy and grateful now that money comes to me
in increasing quantities, from multiple sources, in continuous spaces.

Bob recommends us to write such an affirmation 4-5 times a day for 90 days. Over the course of 90 days, our paradigm will start to shift due to the constant repetition of writing daily. But be careful, it’s easy to run out of steam and think that the act of repetition loses power.

Bob says that the repetition does not lose power. But, people don’t change their paradigms because they get tired of the rewriting. I can agree to this statement because rewriting the same thing for many weeks is not new or sexy. Our brain is wired to constantly seek what is new and sexy, so it gets bored easily.

However, to change our paradigm we require constant repetition until we achieve our big goals. One woman changed her paradigm to double her revenue and triple her profit. You can try the exercise at home as a starting step. Or you can sign up to the Paradigm Shift live stream if you want to join Bob Proctor for three days as he talks about how to shift our paradigm and reach our big goals and desires.

Goal Achiever Summit Review – Help Double Your Income?

Goal Achiever Summit review: This event happens on 29-31 July. Bob Proctor explains the universal laws to achieve goals. Can it help double your income?

Why 95% of People Are Not Successful

It’s commonly said that 95% of people are not successful in achieving their goals. Whether they are trying to lose weight, find a perfect partner, or double their income, the vast majority of people fail.

Now, the study that reports that 95% of people fail was done back in 1959, and it was a study on the weight loss success rate of obese people. But it has been cited again and again, particularly in the weight loss industry, that the “95% figure has become clinical lore” (NY Times).

I’ve even read in a forum that 97% of people who start online businesses fail and never make a cent. Bob Proctor reports that in an insurance company he trained, only three out of one hundred agents made a significantly large income. Although the figure number is not entirely accurate, there is some truth that a vast majority of those who pursue goals fail to achieve them.

Are You Pursuing the Wrong Goal?

One of the causes of failure is that you pursue the wrong goal. An indicator that you are pursuing the wrong goal is when you don’t feel any energy in pursuing it. Your progress is slow, and it makes you even less excited about achieving the goal.

The right goal makes you feel excited about pursuing it. And you make measurable progress that you know brings you closer to your goal. When a problem occurs that gets in your way, you keep making an effort to find a solution until you solve it.

50 Years Studying the Secrets of Success

Knowing the difference between the wrong and right goal is what separates the 5% of successful people from the 95% that fail. Having studied the secrets of success for 50 years, Bob Proctor is someone who has a good grasp on what it takes to become a successful goal achiever. He has spent decades helping and training individuals and corporate groups to pursue and achieve the right goal.

Bob Proctor’s Goal Achiever Summit on 29-31 July

Bob has written many books and held many seminars around the world through the Proctor Gallagher Institute. One topic that keeps getting attention is the topic of achieving goals. Whether it’s about health, relationship, or money issues, knowing proper goal setting and achieving is a skill essential to learn if you want to improve life.

This coming 29-31 July, Bob Proctor is holding the Goal Achiever Summit at the LAX Hilton, Los Angeles, California. Although it is a live event, you can join the summit from home by registering for the live stream option. The live stream option is an affordable way to get the same education at a significantly lower price. You can watch the summit from a computer and you have access to the recording for seven days after the summit has finished.

How to Achieve Goals by Following Universal Laws

The problem is not about knowing what to do – you know that already. The problem is doing what you know how to do. Not many people implement the knowledge that they have acquired. Not many people use their mental faculties to achieve the goals they want.

Your mental faculties are affected by the culture you live in. This culture shapes your paradigm that in turn affects your behavior. And when your behavior is one where you don’t do what you know, then it’s difficult for you to achieve the goals you say you want to achieve. Your behavior affects your results.

Paradigm → Behavior → Results

Bob Proctor Says that achieving goals is a matter of following a set of universal laws. An example is the Wright brothers who didn’t know how to get a plane in the air. But their paradigm is they believed that they would figure it out, and they did. Faith is one of the mechanisms of the universal laws taught in the summit.

The two and a half day event covers:

  • Reprogram your mind to eliminate conditioning that holds you back from your goals
  • Recognize and prioritize your goals to pursue the right goals
  • How to apply the laws of the universe to achieve consistent success
  • How to change your thoughts, feelings, and actions to create results
  • Develop the right attitude that attracts the support you need
  • How to overcome the paralysis of fear
  • Understand the timeline for achieving goals

The summit is a great opportunity to join a community of success-oriented people. You will receive support that is crucial to achieving success. And you get the chance to network with people who may have the resources and connections you need.

“His Teachings Helped Me Double My Income”

One of the biggest concerns of many people is that they don’t want to have any financial concerns. In other words, they want to be able to buy a car when they want it; they want to take a vacation when they want it. They want to have enough money to be able to not have any concerns when they buy.

One woman who has gone through the program reports that Bob helped her to double her income. An increase in money is the goal of many people (maybe even all people), and doubling your income is a great achievement. If one woman can achieve it, then there is a good chance that you can double your income too by applying the universal laws as taught by Bob Proctor:
