Millionaire Mindset

To be a millionaire, you have to hang out with millionaires, regularly. Some people don’t want to be millionaires. Nothing wrong with striving and breaking your back for $500 a week (which is actually $399 after taxes and after bills, expenses and trying to have a life…… ), but why do that if you don’t have to? My $500 a week is different because it’s not taxed and although I’m responsible for my own taxes, I have an accountant for that and because of my tax breaks, I keep more of my money each year. That phrase “i gotta do what i gotta do”, why don’t people actually apply it? If you have to do whatever to earn income for yourself and your family, why not earn the highest amount possible for your efforts and production?

When you sign the dotted line for the position that you interviewed for, you agree to work at the “given” wage no matter what. No matter how many hours they make you work, how many times they disrespect you, deny promotions, make you train other people, make you work other people’s positions without a raise, no matter how much you hate the people around you, it doesn’t matter. And every year you are evaluated and “hope” that it garners a raise (50 cents, a dollar…..) A person in Tampa told me she worked at Bank Of America and despite being their over a decade, got a 30 cent raise. 30 cents…… Think about that.

Control of your destiny. Truthfully, have you really thought about what you are doing right this minute. Have you become satisfied with where you are? If you have the perfect life (you love what you do to earn a living, you love the money you are making, you can walk away right now and not work if you chose to, your children have a substantial inheritance waiting on them when you pass away) that is excellent. But most can’t say any of the above…

Yes, just because you have a millionaire mindset doesn’t guarantee you’ll become a millionaire. But it does guarantee you will always have more one month to the other.

Get out your calculator. Add up what you have made over past ten years. Then add up all of your most expensive bills each month, over ten years. Then subtract the difference. Are you happy with the number? Most people that have been making at least $20,000 a year have made $200,000 in ten years of working, but have nothing to show for it. How many more decades will you go and not have nothing to show for all of your “sacrifices”??????

The “job” of a job is not to make you wealthy, rich or financially stable. It’s to be profitable. If you happen to make a living, that’s great. But the moment your job decides that downsizing your position is in best interests of the long term success of the company, you’re gone….

There is nothing wrong with working a job. But to work a job simply to pay daily expenses? There is nothing wrong with having a career. Until you feel that you are deserving of recognition, promotion to the next level or even possibly running everything and you are “laughed” at or even threatened with losing your position for thinking such thoughts. At that point, you have a decision to make. Either stay where you are at forever or leave. Nothing in between. But you can’t just leave. But you can create an “exit strategy”. Some people decide to work another position in another field. Some people take on part-time work. Some people invest heavily in stocks, precious gems, etc. Some people create a business of their own, and work it until their business exceeds the money they’re making from the job they’re trying to leave.

You can’t complain about a situation you are in if you never try to do something about it. You have to at least “try”. Whatever you choose to do, put the research into it. Ask questions. If something makes sense, do it. If it doesn’t, leave it alone. Choice. As a human it’s our most precious gift. You can choose where you want to go and what you want to do. And if you’re somewhere that choice is not available to you, then you have to try to go somewhere where it is.

Are you ready to choose? Are you ready to give up on the things that keep you where you don’t want to be? Are you ready to at least “look” at alternatives? You like the company you work for? Great, continue studying, increase your knowledge so that your executives can see your value and keep you and in fact promote you. You are thinking about moving to another city or state or country? Wonderful, education is definitely key as well as honing your current skills. Considering starting your own company using your skills and abilities or doing something you enjoy? Good idea, develop a solid business and marketing plan, create the advertising and marketing tools and do it. Thought about investing in an existing franchise? Save your money, do the research and do it and work as hard as you do for your current or past employers.

Nothing is easy. Nothing is guaranteed. But if you never try to do more, you guarantee that you will never know what the possibilities were.
