Money is negative or positive? What is opinion? If your think that money is positive, I can bet, you are doing good in your financial life. But if you think that money is negative, then wait for the moment and just analyze your financial life. What is the condition? All is well! I guess…It’s not, you are struggling in your financial life.
Most people have an ill feeling about money, they see it as a negative thing in their life. They know it is very important to have it but do not give much focus.
Steve Siebold had done research on thinking of masses and rich peoples for several years. How most of the people & rich people think differently about money, money’s connection with formal education & How money can be earned.
Thinking (about Money)
“Ask most people about money and you’ll understand why they don’t have any. The masses see ambitious people as greedy and self-serving. They see money as a necessary evil that must be managed but never focused on. After all, there are more righteous pursuits, like television, sports, and movies. The idea of building wealth seems shallow. It also seems like a lot of work.
The rich see money as a positive tool that has the power to create freedom and opportunity for themselves and their families. Being wealthy gives them the option to live what author/philosopher Ayn Rand called “an unrestricted existence.”
This means having the ability to do what they want, when they want, with whom they want, for as long as they want, without limitations. It also gives them the freedom to engage in their favorite pastimes, no matter how lavish or seemingly impractical to the masses.
Many millionaires form charitable foundations and donate substantial sums to the less fortunate. Without the ongoing support of wealthy benefactors, most charities would not survive. So while the middle class demonizes and criticizes the world-class for selfishness and greed, the latter is donating a lion’s share of the money that keeps charities alive.
Many also pay more taxes in a year than most people pay in a lifetime, and are essentially responsible for funding the infrastructure of the government’s tax base. At the heart of this level of thinking is the belief that money is either a tool of evil or empowerment. The belief you adopt will lead you to abundant wealth or middle-class mediocrity.”
Thinking (about Education & Money)
“While the rich respect the power of formal education, they usually don’t associate it with building a financial empire. Many world-class performers have little formal education and have amassed their wealth through the acquisition and subsequent sale of specific knowledge.
Formal education teaches people how to think and perform in the linear world of commerce, but the rich rarely become wealthy trading time for money. The great ones operate from a non-linear mindset that keeps them perpetually in the consciousness of creative thought. At this elevated level of thinking, there are no limits or boundaries, and the sole focus is on solving the seemingly unsolvable.
In this nonlinear school of thought, two and two no longer equal four, and anything is possible. The rich use their brainpower in addition to the brainpower of others to hone in on ultra-specific solutions their competitors have given up on.
Meanwhile, the masses are convinced that master’s degrees and doctorates are the way to wealth, mostly because they are trapped in the linear line of thought that holds them back from higher levels of consciousness.
One of the greatest secrets of the rich lies in their ability to rely on their common sense and a street-smart approach to problem-solving. While the middle class makes simple problems seem complex, the world-class makes complex problems seem simple. Their ability to reduce any problem to an elementary level allows them to see solutions most academics wouldn’t even consider.
The wealthy aren’t interested in the means, only the end. Solve the problem, get compensated, and repeat the process until you’re rich. End of story. This single-minded focus always pays off sooner or later, at which time the masses will call it luck.”
Thinking (about How to Earn Money)
“The average person believes the harder they work the more money they’ll make. Their linear thinking equates labor and effort with financial success. This is why most people aren’t rich. They’re following an outdated model of success and are confounded when they reach middle age with little money to show for twenty years of hard work.
The rich know that creative thinking is the highest paid skill in the world. Independent, creative thinking is the most valuable asset anyone can acquire. So while the masses are trying to figure out how to put their kids through college and retire on half of what they can barely exist on now, the great ones are building empires, living in abundance, and donating large sums to their favorite causes.
This sets off a psychological domino effect because once a person thinks and lives at this level of abundance, they know even greater levels of success are possible through the vehicle of creative thought. Most of us were told as kids that if we paid attention in school, got good grades, and went to a respectable college or university, our success was virtually guaranteed.
The reality is few people who follow this formula ever get rich. They survive, and some become the most successful people in their families. But world-class wealth is rarely achieved by people who follow this model. The rich eventually figure out that training your mind to find solutions to difficult problems is the real secret to making money.
The good news is this is possible for anyone who conditions their mind to think this way, and then transforms thought into action.”
So if your financial condition is not appreciable, then you need to start thinking differently. Switching over to a new thinking pattern may take some time but you will get a good result. You can make a list of your self-limiting beliefs about money also about other things associated with money.
Analyze these beliefs and develop new & more powerful money-associated beliefs. Keep on repeating these new beliefs in your daily routine, till they get absorbed in your mind, your subconscious mind. Believe me, once you are having a positive feeling about money, about rich people, things will start changing in your life.
In the majority of cases, it’s boiled down to one point, rich peoples are masters of solving the problems of the masses. In return for their solution, they get a substantial return.
