Just as the achievement of anything in this life begins with your mindset, so is financial prosperity. If you ever want to live a prosperous life, it has to start in your mind. You must become a financial success in your thinking long before you achieve it in your reality. Both poverty and riches are the result of a state of mind, and the most important single step you ever take on the road to wealth and financial independence is to possess the prosperity mentality.
When you have a prosperity mindset, you see opportunities for wealth creation and financial breakthrough instead of obstacles in every challenging situations. The like of Oluwatosin Olasehinde who started Money Africa didn’t just become a financial expert in a day. It started somewhere and that’s in the mind. What about Oprah Winfrey who had a very humble family and yet rose to the stardom?
What do you feed your mind or what do you believe? A prosperous mindset has a way of drawing you to new circumstances, people and events that will help you create the life of your dreams.
Just as fear attracts more fear, and limitations create more limitations so does positive prosperity mentality attracts financial breakthrough.
So as you go on this new week seeking financial freedom, here are two things you should practice.
Have a positive mindset: You don’t have to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth to achieve great things in life — though it certainly helps. But, many of today’s billionaires had very humble beginnings. Growing up poor didn’t stop these CEOs, celebrities and business experts from reaching the pinnacle of success — and it shouldn’t stop you, either
Therefore, tell yourself, I can make it! I can do it! Others have made it, mine will not be an exception. You have to change your thinking, in order to change your life.
Be Expectant and Optimistic: whatever you expect with confidence, positive or negative, becomes your reality. If you confidently expect to become wealthy as a result of applying your talents and abilities to your opportunities and you maintain that attitude of confident expectations long enough, it will become your reality. It will give you a positive optimistic cheerful attitude that will cause people to want to help you, and will cause things to happen the way you want them to happen.
