How do you start to grow a wealthy mindset, even if you don’t feel wealthy?
I’ve personally been there and would have to find the smallest things that would get me excited during my days.
It would help propel me so I didn’t make myself feel down in the dirt or poor.
The Little Things
It could be as simple as going to the movies or being grateful for the fact that you have money to take yourself to dinner.
The reality is that there’s a lot of people in the world that don’t have that ability or option to do these simple things even the below average wealthy individual can.
So for me, it was the little things like getting the shirt I wanted, getting the jacket I saw a few months ago, or the suit I decided to buy myself.Back in 2016 I walked into a store and bought a suit for a thousand dollars, and that was a big deal for me at the time.
But I did it because I wanted to feel more rich and it’s something I could afford.
My bank account wanted to say otherwise, but I bought it because I told myself it’s going to help me feel more rich.
The reverse is this cave of feeling poor and that can turn into a hole that’s really hard to pull yourself out of.
Taking It For Granted. That cave turns into beating yourself down so much, so then you get so far down the cave that it becomes hard to pull yourself back out.
That’s why focusing on the simple things can help you when you’re in a situation similar to that.
And simple things don’t only apply if you’re trying to make yourself feel wealthy when you’re not, they even apply to people who have “made it.”
For example, even if a wealthy individual gets a new phone, book, or laptop they get excited about that.
It’s a simple activity most people even in a wealthy class could do and it still achieves the feeling of being more rich.
It’s the little things, and the most powerful thing is not allowing yourself to feel broke or poor simply by exercising your right to do something that most people can’t.
And a lot of people take it for granted when they can go to the movies and go to dinner but then they feel poor.
Well, there’s people in other countries that can’t can’t even do that because they don’t have the money.
So if you’re especially living in America or a country that’s similar in its options, practice feeling more gratitude towards being able to do the simple things, and it will start to help you not feel unwealthy.
