Millionaire mind | Wealth Files Part 6

If something bad happens to you e.g. a redundancy do you look at it as an obstacle or an opportunity?

Rich people see potential growth and they focus on rewards. Poor people see potential loss, and focus on the risks.

Millionaire Mind | Wealth Files

 

This is the sixth post on things I have learned from “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”

Last post I talked about the first four Wealth Files.  Today I am going to talk about the next three.
These Wealth Files  are from ‘Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T Harv Eker

Wealth File #5
Rich People Focus on Opportunities. Poor People focus on Obstacles

If something bad happens to you e.g. a redundancy do you look at it as an obstacle or an opportunity?

Rich people see potential growth and they focus on rewards.  Poor people see potential loss, and focus on the risks.

Poor people generally make choices based on fear, their minds are constantly scanning for what is wrong or could go wrong in any situation.  Their primary mind-set is what if it doesn’t work? Or more often, “It won’t work.” Middle class people are slightly more optimistic.  Their mind-set is “I sure hope this works.”

Rich people expect to succeed, they have confidence in their abilities, creativity and believe that if stuff goes wrong they will find another way to succeed.

Rich people focus on what they want, while poor people focus on what they do not.  Remember what you focus on expands.  Because rich people focus on the opportunities in everything, opportunities abound for them.

Your field of focus determines what you find in life.

For me when I was made redundant I focussed on it as an opportunity.  For me it was a chance to put some serious work into this business, doing blogging etc.  It was also an opportunity for me to experience to some degree the life I want to lead of freedom.  Now work opportunities are coming my way so I will not have the freedom again but will keep working on that in my own time.

Harv Eker says if you want to get rich focus on making, keeping and investing your money.  If you want to be poor, focus on spending your money.

Rich people do research quickly, and then take action.  Poor people are known to do the research and then keep doing the research without ever taking action.

Rich people trust that once they are in the game they can make intelligent decisions in the present moment, make corrections, and adjust their directions along the way.

Wealth File #6
Rich People admire other rich and successful people.  Poor people resent rich and successful people.

How do you look at rich people?  Do you look at them and want to associate with them and learn from them or do you think they are bad in some way?  If you think rich people are bad you will never be rich.  You need to change that mental programming.

Me, personally I am loving my association with rich people and am soaking up as much of their knowledge as I possibly can. When I look back at my history my husband and I have always been around rich and successful people.  Over the years we have met some very rich people, and our first real introduction was our first multi-level marketing company. We have always enjoyed spending time with the top earners and have made an effort to do so in every other business we have been associated with.  To me rich people are my mentors, they have done it, so I am going to follow in their footsteps as much as possible.

The truth is resenting the rich is one of the surest ways to stay broke.  Instead of resenting the rich we need to start admiring the rich blessing them and loving them.  That way when you become rich other people will admire you, bless you and love you instead of resent the heck out of you the way you might do them now.  One of the sayings in in Hawaii based on old Huna Wisdom is

“Bless that which you want.  If you see a person with a beautiful home, bless that person and that home.  If you see a person with a beautiful car, bless that person and bless that car. If you see a person with a loving family, bless that family and bless that person.  If you see a person with a beautiful body bless that person and bless their body.  In other words Bless that which you want”

 

Wealth File #7
Rich People Associate with positive, successful people.  Poor people associate with negative or unsuccessful people

Take a look at the people around you.  What sort of people are they? Do they celebrate the success of others or do they put down their success?

Harv Eker says the fastest and easiest way to create wealth is to learn exactly how rich people, who are masters of money, play the game.  The goal is simply model their inner and outer strategies.  If you take the exact same actions and have the exact same mind-set, chances are good you will get the exact same results.

Here is Harv’s answer if the loved ones you are closest too are negative

“First don’t bother trying to get negative people to change. That’s not your job.  Your job is to use what you have learned to better yourself and your life.  Be the model, be successful, be happy, then maybe – and I stress Maybe- they’ll see the light (in you) and want some of it.  Again, energy is contagious.  Darkness dissipates in light. People actually have to work hard to stay “dark” when light is all around them.  Your job is simply to be the best you can be.  If they choose to ask the secret, tell them.

Second keep in mind another principle that is taught in another of Harv’s courses “everything happens for a reason and that reason is there to assist me.” Yes it is difficult to be positive and conscious around people and circumstances that are negative, but that’s your test! Just as steel is hardened in the fire, if you can remain true to your values while others around you are full of doubt and even condemnation, you’ll grow faster and stronger”

Did you know that most people earn within 20% of the average income of their closest friends?  That’s why you’d better watch whom you associate with and choose whom you spend your time with carefully.

“If you want to fly with the eagles, don’t swim with the ducks”

Rich people hang around with winners.  Poor people hang around with losers.  Why? It’s a matter of comfort

Attitudes and how they can affect you

I have the opposite attitude, I am saying life is an opportunity, I am working on my internet marketing business, I am reading powerful books, I am working with a really empowering group of people, for now I will just go out into the contracting world until this business kicks in and I get my freedom. I am happy and content and know that I will succeed. I know that we have reached the bottom of our trough and the only way to go is up now.

Attitudes and how they can affect you

 

Hi everyone

Well it has been a little while since I wrote but I have been going through interesting times.

I found out last week that my job has been disestablished. This is the second redundancy I have been through so I know how it goes and this time I am able to cope.

At the same time my husband has been going through a hard time. He didn’t realise quite how hard it was going to be starting his own business coaching business. At the start of the week he was telling me life sucks. I told him he needs to get rid of that attitude and instead say that we are the lowest we are going to go and now we can only go up. Midway through the week his attitude has improved again.

The reason why he was saying life sucks was that, he was made redundant December last year, his Grandmother died this year in February, he has not had any solid paying work for six months, one of our pet mice died over the weekend, we have had no car so weekend activities have been curtailed for the last few months and to top it off I have been made redundant now.

I have the opposite attitude, I am saying life is an opportunity, I am working on my internet marketing business, I am reading powerful books, I am working with a really empowering group of people, for now I will just go out into the contracting world until this business kicks in and I get my freedom.  I am happy and content and know that I will succeed. I know that we have reached the bottom of our trough and the only way to go is up now.

Already things are changing,  I will be helping my husband prepare his CV, he has so many skills, but hasn’t really thought about them. He just does not like sitting down and doing the administration. We will get another couple of female mice to keep Smoke, the surviving mouse, company this week so we will have a happy mice collection again. When we are both contracting we will be able to pick up a car so we are able to travel in the weekends again and do swimming and stuff like that, because public transport is all very well but it does not go where we want to go at the kind of times we want to go. Everything is looking up.

As my calendar says this month

“Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine”

I am learning through my own reading and experience and reading other people’s blogs and seeing their experiences that attitude is just so important. I know I will get a good paying contract role, which will set me up until my digital products business takes over. I also know that as soon as my husband’s skills are with the agencies he will be picking up work without an issue. He will love contracting and I know he has desired skills. I also know that he will be able to continue his business coaching work in the evenings and build up a great reputation that way.

Opportunity is coming our way every way we look. Our local Neighbourhood social platform has just opened up a business arm so we will be able to advertise his business coaching there, I have been looking on our local Job search websites and there are heaps of jobs that match my skills and I know that soon we will be earning more money than we ever have before, which will give us the opportunity to invest in our businesses as well.

Life is looking good.

That is the only attitude I can have.

I am setting my goals, starting to visualise my future and I know I will succeed and the down patch we are going through is only a learning opportunity.

One of my aspirations is to be able to donate a good regular sum of money to a family I am helping in Kenya so they can be lifted from a minimum income job into a well-paying position. So they can afford to get a good quality house and not be scared every time that it rains in the rainy season that their mudhouse will fall down. I would like to see Peter able to get work closer to home or be able to move his family closer to his workplace,  as he currently works 575km away from his home,  so getting home is very difficult for him.

To start this process off I am starting a “givealittle” page which is a free fundraising site in New Zealand, to help with the Sifuna Family’s immediate needs of getting their daughter home from the hospital. Norlan is 10 years old and was admitted to hospital last month. Unfortunately because they have not been able to pay the bill, Norlan remains confined to the hospital when she would rather be at home and going to school. She will remain there until the bill is paid and the bill keeps going up every day with food and accommodation costs. Peter gives me updates every day on Norlan, and this week Norlan’s teacher was able to bring a few of her schoolmates into the hospital to play with her for about 20 minutes which was good for her.

The other attitude I am pushing is do not quit.

I am working on a 90 day boot camp and unfortunately I have got behind on a number of the assignments because of what has been happening, however I will not quit. I will be working hard to get myself caught up again, because the momentum is so great. I have just been listening to a webcast about changes that are happening to our business and I and my collegues are so excited about what is happening in the industry. This is a really exciting time for our industry and I would love for you to join me on the roller coaster that is going to lead to more success for more people.

Attitudes and how they affect you

I started off by calling this blog attitudes and how they affect you. I believe that an attitude like my husband’s was at the beginning of the week is not good so we are working together to change that attitude.  He is usually pretty good but has down times, whereas me, I am forever chirpy, positive and know that success will come our way. I am affecting him daily as his attitude is uplifting more and more daily. I love seeing him succeed and be happy. The change in attitude is immediately uplifting.

If you have an attitude where you feel that everything is wrong and life sucks then life will suck. You need to change it so that you attract good things to you. You need to be grateful for everything you have and more of the good stuff you want will come to you. Remember wherever you are, whatever the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

I look at the the Sifuna Family I am trying to help in Kenya and are forever grateful for what I have access to in our first world country and I just want to share so much of it.  Please help me help the Sifuna Family.

Contact me for details of how you can help to get Norlan home from hospital.

Be grateful every day for what you have and what you have achieved and your attitude will be forever positive.

Have a great day and remember Where ever you are always bring your own Sunshine.

Procrastination | Reasons for Procrastination

There are two main reasons for procrastination, the fear of success and the fear of failure. Today I go a bit more in depth of these two fears and ways to overcome them.

Reasons for Procrastination

Over the last few posts I have been talking about procrastination.  In the first post I was fairly general about some of the reasons for Procrastination,  in the second post I shared some quotes about procrastination and how they apply to me and in this post I am going to discuss the two major fears that can lead to procrastination.

My husband has been doing some training as well for his business as well and his mentor said that the two main reasons for procrastination are the “fear of Success” and the “Fear of Failure” and so he suggested I go into more detail on these fears.

Why is it that so many lottery winners are back to where they started a year after they won the lottery? Why do Pop Stars that become famous overnight have so much problem dealing with it? Particularly if it is a result of a reality show.  A lot of the reason is that these people do not know how to handle success.  A lot of people do not how they would handle success if it came to them suddenly by doing something so they procrastinate.

You have to know how to deal with success, and the way you learn, is by reading and listening to audios.  Training your mind that success is natural, that you will succeed and you will be able to handle it.  Your mind has to be prepared to accept success otherwise it will self-sabotage all your efforts.

The way I am preparing my mind is reading powerful books like Napoleon Hill, listening to audios like our inner circle audios and I am also listening to subliminal recordings and hypnosis but that is not for everyone.

Other ways we can prepare ourselves are by meditation and associating with other successful people. Masterminding with other successful people enables you to associate success with you and your friends and just be accepted.

 

Reasons for Procrastination

 

The other major Fear you have to overcome often to stop procrastination is the “Fear of Failure.” With this fear you are afraid that you will fail so do not even want to start the task before you.  You might have been told all your informative years that you will never come to anything, that you might as well not try as you will fail.

One of the the first things you have to teach yourself is that all successful people have failed before they achieved.  One of the most important things to remember is that Edison failed 10000 times before he succeeded in creating a working light-bulb.  Donald Trump has failed many times but what makes him great is that he always gets up and starts again and is now one of the richest men in the world.   What you need to do is look at failure as just a step along the way to success.  Each failure gets you further along the path to success as you learn how to deal with that issue and progress further on the path to success.

The more important thing is if you fail do you just try again after analysing the reason for failure? If you do you will be preparing yourself for success and the more you do this the less you will procrastinate.

These are two main reasons for procrastination,  There are multiple reasons but most of them will boil down to these two reasons.

If you have enjoyed reading my post on reasons for Procrastination,  then comment below with examples you have come across and methods you are using to overcome these two main fears.

Procrastination | How do you overcome Procrastination?

Firstly you work out your Why. (Your Definiteness of Purpose) and get it burned into your mind. The more you burn it into your mind the less likely you will be to procrastinate. You will prioritise the tasks that will lead to you succeeding in your definiteness of purpose. Always at the top of mind you will be thinking about your definiteness of purpose, your why. Because your definiteness of purpose is always at the top of your mind you will do everything you can do achieve your definite of purpose.

Procrastination, how do you overcome it?

 

I have been thinking about procrastination a lot this week.  I have been suffering from it a bit.

I have been showing up in my business everyday, a little bit each day but not putting in the full time I should have been devoting.

I have been making excuses that life has taken over again , but the real excuse is I have not had my definite major purpose at front of mind.  I have been trying to get my head in the right place by using subliminal tools and of course reading and listening to audios, which has helped me deal with some of the depression and negativity my husband has been going through as well.

 

The dictionary definition of Procrastination is:

noun
1.

the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especiallysomething requiring immediate attention:

She was smart, but her constant procrastination led her to be late with almost every assignment.

So how do you overcome procrastination?

 

Firstly you work out your Why. (Your Definiteness of Purpose) and get it burned into your mind.  The more you burn it into your mind the less likely you will be to procrastinate. You will prioritise the tasks that will lead to you succeeding in your definiteness of purpose.  Always at the top of mind you will be thinking about your definiteness of purpose, your why.  Because your definiteness of purpose is always at the top of your mind you will do everything you can do achieve your definite of purpose.
There are some situations where procrastination is good.  This is putting off minor and unimportant tasks so you can concentrate on the major tasks that lead to achievement of your definiteness of purpose.  Sometimes this procrastination can save you from putting effort in where you shouldn’t exert it.
There are several reasons for Procrastination and all can be overcome.  The list of reasons I have found is Stress, Overwhelm , Laziness, Lack of Motivation, Lack of Discipline, Poor time Management. Lack of Skills, and perfectionism.
I have just read a blog from Steve Palina.com which has a really good explanation of what to do to overcome these reasons for the procrastination but the one that I like the most is make time to play as well then make time to work.

So what ways do you overcome procrastination?

What methods do you use in your daily life to overcome habits of procrastination?
I would love to hear what you do.  Leave a comment below and help others with your ways of overcoming procrastination.
