The number one thing that separates the wealthy from the poor is not how much money they have but how they think about wealth and prosperity. Money is not the end goal, but a result of our own internal change and a tool that can bring us the experiences and choices that we dream about. It is important not to lose sight of why we want to earn more.
Abundance starts within us and it is defined by the way we think and our energy level towards our aspirations. If you want to grow rich, think like the rich and keep these valuable pieces of advice in mind.
1. Be Available
The world is a place full of possibilities. When a new opportunity shows up we often sabotage our own success by procrastinating to act on it or turning it down out of fear and the misbelief that we are not good enough to sign up for it. When inspiration strikes, we might not take the subject of our creation as a priority only to realize a few months later that somebody else has done what we were not ready for.
The universe doesn’t wait for you to be available. It is constantly looking for people who can create, act and make a change in the world and it is up to you if you let the opportunity pass or say yes to it.
2. Embrace Abundance
How much money does it take to be rich? We cannot define the amount and it is because abundance is not a number. Abundance is having enough and being in a constant flow towards growth. If you don’t feel abundant now then you won’t be able to create wealth because you are focusing on what you are lacking and not on what you are already surrounded by. This way, even if you double or triple your income, even if you earn your first million, you will feel that it’s not enough for you.
Stop for a moment to pause and look around you. Do you have a roof over your head? Do you have clothes and more food than you could eat? Then you are already living in more prosperity than the majority of the planet. Express gratitude and embrace the abundance around you that will give you a foundation and let you flow in the direction of growing.
3. Habits First
Do you want to live like the rich? Start with integrating their habits! It is not the amount that matters but how well you are able to manage it. You need to constantly educate yourself, learn about wealth and productivity, and grow yourself. A wealthy lifestyle is not about sipping cocktails by the poolside, that is only the result of working smart, keeping focus and evolving as a person. Dream big, but start by acting small! Book time for yourself in your calendar to work on something that makes you passionate and to study great habits. Rich people are avid learners and many of them started out with very little. It’s your time to take the first step in their footprint.
