Abundance starts with intention
They say how you spend your days is how you spend your life.
That’s why it’s important to stop and reflect on your habits once in awhile. 🙂
Here are some things to help attract wealth into your life.
Maybe you’re already familiar with them. But here’s a friendly reminder that many good things in life are free.
1. Say “no” more often.
Warren Buffett says, “the difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything.” It’s so much easier to focus on accomplishing your goals if you have fewer distractions.
2. Make to-do lists.
What gets measured and tracked gets done. And what gets prioritized gets done faster. Organize your tasks for better productivity.
3. Believe you can shape your own life.
Things can either happen to you, or you can make things happen. The latter will put your focus on things you can actually control.
4. Know when you have enough.
It’s great to play the money making game. But the point of playing is to win and then get out. The purpose of learning to fight is so you don’t have to fight. Life is short. There has a be a better way to spend it than endlessly chasing money.
5. Cultivate passion and obsession.
Don’t just want something, actually commit to it. Prioritize your time around whatever it is you seek and show the world how much you really want it. It doesn’t matter who you are. You have the potential to be the top 1% at something. Find it. Immerse yourself in it. Change your life.
6. Focus on opportunities, not obstacles.
Both are constantly around you. What you pay attention to is what you will find more of, always. Successful people rarely complain or criticize – probably because they’re too busy looking for new opportunities.
7. Become comfortable being uncomfortable.
Saving money should not feel effortless. If you’re not somewhat uncomfortable with your savings rate, it probably isn’t high enough. If you don’t move out of your comfort zone you will stagnate and get left behind. Being uncomfortable is necessary to get ahead in your career, and in investing for your future.
8. Associate with already wealthy people.
If you secretly despise money or resent the rich, then wealth will elude you. Instead, admire and learn from others who are already where you want to be.
9. Think “both” instead of “either or.”
Try to find a solution where all parties can win. Learn to compromise and negotiate.
10. Focus on your net worth more than your income.
Wealth is what you’re really after. Income is just a way to transfer stored wealth from one person to another. If you have control over wealth you can create sustainable income. If all you have is income you will have to depend on someone else’s wealth.
There you have it. Take some time to reflect on these habits.
Time is a currency you can only spend once.
So just like money, make the most of it by spending it intentionally. 🙂
Random Useless Fact:
The fastest way to make money is to provide a huge amount of value.
Might take issue with #8.
Not all the wealthy are worthwhile associating with. Sometimes the poor frugal millionaire not flaunting their “supposed” wealth might be more appropriate.
Never the less, running with the pack may lead to better insights if you have your head screwed on straight. Just don’t get caught up with “keeping up with the Joneses”
I would second that. Their is a lot of fake rich ppl out there up to their eyes in debt ( not the good kind ) just making it to the next month.
Frugal millionaires are my people, lol. I like to hang out with them because they don’t pressure me into buying luxury goods. 9volt is correct as well. It’s important to know the difference between fake rich and real rich. 🙂
I 100% second #1, on a bigger scale it’s saying knowing your own worth. You have got to weed out things, people etc. in order to focus on yourself to get to where you want to be.
I might add what my wise Chinese dad told me lol. He said the size of your underwear should match the size of your *ss lol it’s funny and it’s blunt but it’s the ultimate truth. If you can’t even identify your worth then you can’t become successful. If you’re not cut out to be a manager then stop trying to manage people; it’s not because you suck it’s just not something you’re good at… so why focus on things you’re not good at? Maximize and magnify your strengths and admit to yourself about the fake crap you have going on then cut it out.
Haha, there’s a lot of truth in those words of wisdom. Living life more intentionally is always good advice.🙂 Your dad sounds like a smart guy.
