Money is pretty important, so don’t kid yourself that it’s not. If you want to increase your wealth and savings, you may need to change the way you perceive money itself.
Understand that money comes from a place of abundance, not lack.
When you want money for something, believe that it’s there, and it’ll be yours. Don’t believe that it does not exist and that you will create it—you must believe that what you desire is possible for you to reach out and grab.
Clear up your misconceptions about money.
If you think money won’t come to you, think about specific times in the past when you received a specific amount of money. Write it down, and try to come up with at least 10 instances of this occurring. If you think you will never have enough money, and you resent needing it in the first place, think about a time when you had enough money to spend on the things you wanted. Did you resent it then? Challenge your misconceptions about money in this manner and replace the negative thoughts you have about money with positive ones.
Understand how much money you need and begin working toward it.
This refers to how much money you need to provide yourself with everything you need and desire. Once you’ve identified this value, make vision boards, go back to school, surround yourself with people who are making the kind of money you want to make, read books on money management, etc. Do what you need to do to be the kind of person who can have that value of money, and picture yourself as this person to motivate yourself. Set a deadline to obtain this wealth—it will push you to work harder for it.
