Develop a Positive Money Mindset

25 Jun Develop a Positive Money Mindset

How you think about money is the single most important factor that determines whether you are wealthy or not. So, if you want more money in your life it is essential that you develop a positive money mindset.

However, many of us are taught to think negatively about money. We’re told things like “the love of money is the root of all evil,” and “money doesn’t grow on trees.” No wonder we have such a difficult time thinking positively about money! You may have even been taught that rich people are greedy and as a result are subconsciously avoiding wealth and missing out on the great opportunities having money can provide.

As long as you hold on to negative and incorrect beliefs about money, you will never create the wealth you desire or deserve.

To change your money mindset, you must first recognize that money is not good or bad by itself. It is just a tool. In fact, money is more often used to do good than bad. Think about the wonderful charities that have been able to help people all around the world when they are given large donations of money. Appreciate all the good that money is used for. It is important part of life and is used to make positive changes in the world. Money should be sought after, not avoided.

Recognize that money is abundant. When you were young, you may have been told by your parents that money doesn’t grow on trees. If you’re holding onto that belief now, your own mindset could be holding you back from attracting money. Money may not grow on trees, but there is an abundant amount of it for everyone, including you. However, if you believe that money is scarce, that belief will keep it far away from you.

Giving money away is another way you can develop a positive money mindset. Wanting to hang onto every cent you have is a sign of a stingy mindset and reinforces the idea that there is not enough of it. Giving reinforces the concept of abundance.

Finally, be happy for those who are successful and have money. We often remember being told that those who have money are greedy and are tempted to think negatively about them. In fact, the opposite is usually true. Rich people often accumulate their wealth by sharing what they have with others and believing in the idea of abundance.

When someone else has money, don’t resent their success. If you have feelings of jealousy, that will only hold you back from achieving your own wealth and success. Instead, be happy for them and remember that there is enough wealth for you too, and your turn will come.

By making these changes in how you think about money, you will be on your way to developing a positive money mindset. Once you begin thinking about money in a positive way, you will be on the path to achieving your own wealth.

What’s your money mindset?  What are the mental obstacles you have or that you’ve overcome?  What else might be blocking you from making the kind of money you want and building wealth?

    Great post, It trigger some memories of growing up. My mother would say “money doesn’t grow on trees and people who have money are not nice people”
    Of course I learned early on that money didn’t grow on trees but for a long time I believed that people with money weren’t nice people.

    So glad I don’t think that way anymore.

    Over 6 years ago Loral I remember meeting you at the Cash Machine Workshop in L.A. I felt then as I do today, positive thoughts bring results!

    I so much agree with you that you must possess a positive mindset when it comes to money and becoming wealthy. It is amazing how the Law of Attraction teaches us this concept but I meet so many people that because they are in such desparation, cannot see beyond to a more positive and thriving lifestyle.

    Your tips, information and inspiration I have admired and continue to do so. I share what I have learned from you with others in hope they too will see money as a means to a positive and prosperous life.

    Thank You for the posting-it is right-on the money! I was taught that money only makes you ‘more of what you already are’ and as a charitable giver and a thoughtful and concerned citizen, that wants only the best for people-I look forward to a future that is full of money! Thanks for pointing the way to my future Loral!
