5 Critical Things You MUST Address to Change Your Mindset to Make Money

Do you believe that your mindset to make money has everything to do with how successful you will become? If not, below I share with you the 5 Critical Things You MUST Address to Change Your Mindset to Make Money.

Our Mindset to Make Money Has Been Skewed by the Media

First let me say that as a society we have been taught the wrong things about money. For example, you wouldn’t think twice about leaving your laptop unattended in a ritzy restaurant full of wealthy people but yet you wouldn’t leave it unattended in a McDonald’s in a sketchy part of town. Why? Because you believe the rich don’t need to steal your laptop because they have the money to buy their own, but yet the sketchy people in McDonald’s would take it in a heartbeat because they don’t have money.  However reality is we have been lead to believe by watching TV that you can’t trust the rich because they will take everything from you and the poor are self-righteous.  

It isn’t that we don’t trust the wealthy or the less unfortunate it actually is bigger than that; the biggest problem is that when it comes to having money is we develop a money block around it. When it comes to managing our money, spending money, acquiring money, etc. we get so caught up in thinking the more money we have or can hold on to will solve all our problems. WRONG!  

Change Your Vibration, Change Your Mindset to Make Money

What we really need to do is shift our vibration around money. Below are the 5 Critical Things You MUST Address to Change Your Mindset to Make Money:

1. You Have To Get Clear On Your Relationship With Money – Everyone has a different relationship with money. You either have a starving artist relationship, prostitute relationship, drowning victim relationship, gambler relationship, free flowing relationship, or conditional relationship, just to name a few. Most of us don’t look at our relationship with money so we always think we are the effect of what money is. A lot of people think they have to give up something in order to have money which is saying that money is bad. Are you miser with your money? Do you believe you have to hold on to every penny because you don’t know when the money may stop coming? Do you have an abusive relationship with money? If you answered yes to any of these questions then you need to get clear on your relationship with money first and foremost.

 Think of money equaling impact.  If you are impacting more people you should make more money. If we can draw this conclusion and change your mindset towards money you should never get stuck at any income. If you associate greed with money, selfishness, negativity, etc. you will stay broke because you have the inner mechanisms’ that will keep you from being profitable.

2.Your Vibration About Attracting Money – Are you one of those people who continually compare yourself to others that have more than you? Do you say with sad eyes and frown on your face “oh they have that house and I wish I had it” or do you say with a smile on your face and conviction in your words “They’ve got that house and that is what I want.” If you have the “poor me” vibration around money you will never attract money. You have to change your vibration towards money as if you have it and can have anything you want.

Try this exercise to help change your vibration around money: whenever you see something you want instead of saying or thinking “I can’t afford that,” instead say “I can buy that, I just don’t want to.” See how that can change your vibration towards money?

3.Let Go Of The Thought That You Need Money To Get The Things You Want In Your Life-You have to open your mind up to the fact that what you want you don’t need money to have it. I know what you are thinking “this woman is off her rocker!” Well let me tell you a story.

A friend of mine decided he wanted to travel the world. After looking at his bank account he had no idea how that was going to be possible. However, he felt so strongly about traveling that one day his phone rang out of the blue. A friend of his worked for the airlines and was just told that he could give a free pass to a non-relative to fly anywhere in the world and he wanted to give it to him. My friend flew for several years all around the world on the airlines dime. He actually kept track of the expenditure for each flight and when he totaled all the flights he had gone on it was over $200k. The moral to this story is…the universe will provide you with what you want if you believe it strongly enough.

4.Understand The Ebb And Flow Of Money-There will be times when money flows to you effortlessly and other times when it is ebbing. Just like the surf on the beach, it comes in and goes out; the same principle relates to money, it ebbs and flows. It comes to you in abundance and other times it is scarce. This is the way money works, the key is how you deal with money in the ebb, it says everything about your relationship with money.

If you become desperate about money in the ebb you are literally blocking the manifestation of money. When money isn’t coming in this is a good time to get creative, do things for free, do things for other people, etc. Lessons are learned in the ebb; you have to be very aware of you vibration when money is ebbing. So change how you are thinking when the money isn’t coming in; in other words, change your energy, change the outcome.

5.This is the most important of all. Money Is NOT Your Source! – The more money you think you have to have to be happy, peaceful, respected, feel good about yourself and so forth, the more you believe money is the source to all of these things, the less money you will have.

A lot of people think that money is the source to all these things, in actuality your source is the pulse of life that runs through you. Once you can grasp this and become in tune with life you will have the money. You have to give up the belief that in order to be happy, peaceful, respected, or feel good about yourself that money is going to do all this for you. All you are really doing is holding back your happiness dependent on money. Money is just icing on the cake!

Your Mindset to Make Money is What Is Holding You Back

See it isn’t really what society and the media has taught us that is the real problem with our mindset when it comes to making money, but our own inner thoughts and actions toward money that is holding us back. Change your vibration and beliefs about money and it will flow more easily toward you!

I like saying that money is a unit of measure. Some peopel are good at what they do, but don’t take the time to measure themselves or ask for their worth. Great article

This is so critical! Don’t forget that you must also feel worthy! Thank you for sharing.

    Donna Wildman - December 2, 2016 Reply

    Very true Kenny! We really shouldn’t be putting all of our faith and worthiness into how much money we have or will make; it should be more “how many lives can we touch.”

    You’re welcome Miki! Yes, I think too many people get caught up in the importance of having money forgetting that success is really not about money at all, it’s about your mindset. 🙂
