Creating a Prosperity Mindset

Aug 29, 2007
In order for an individual to have a prosperity mindset, they need to be focused. It is possible that an individual can get what he or she desires, if they are single-minded in their pursuit, and do not allow negative thoughts to interfere with their goal.

In most instances, however, this is easier said than done, and we all allow other people and circumstances to dictate how we think and how we feel. In doing this we allow outside forces to control us. If you want to have a prosperity mindset, you need to recognize that you are in control.

And, if you are not, then you need to take control. Take control of your finances, take control of your passions, take control of your mind. When you have control of your mind, you have control of your life.

And, if you want more out of life then you must first become more. As Jim Rohn said, To have more, be more. You must work harder on yourself then you do on your job.

How to create a prosperity mindset

This idea of creating a prosperity mindset has been around for some time and has been nicely elucidated by many experts in the field including James Allen, Napoleon Hill, Randy Gage, Bob Proctor, Joe Vitale, Bob Doyle, and a number of others.

Allen's book, As a Man Thinketh, is a classic. The basic premise is that it is not the events that control your life, but your reaction to those events. And, you control that reaction.

The recent popular movie, The Secret, is a testament to the Law of Attraction. Essentially, it states, that what you think about you attract to you. Think about and dwell on prosperity and you'll attract more. Conversely, have thoughts centered on poverty and lack and that is the realm in which you'll dwell.

One key component stressed by many of these personal development authorities for the development of this prosperity mindset is the recognition that others have been very successful and that you can follow their example.

1. It is important for every individual to look at the success of others. To examine it and to see what made them a success. This is especially important if they are in a field or an area of interest that you would like to get into. This allows the individual to see someone succeed in that field or area or interest, and reassure you that success is possible.

2. Seeing an individual being successful in a field of interest to you will provide you with positive reinforcement that success can be achieved.

3. Studying individuals who are successful gives you the chance to emulate what they have done and possibly following in their footsteps. It is important to read up on a successful person's life and see how they overcame obstacles to get where they are today.

4. In order to achieve a prosperity mindset, you should surround yourself with successful individuals. This allows their habits, actions, beliefs and thoughts to rub off on you in a positive way. Likewise, you must cut yourself free from those who are constantly mired in negative thoughts. Have some garlic if you think it will keep them at bay, but basically do what you must to rid yourself of the energy sapping vampires in your life.

5. After doing these things, you need to take stock in what you are currently doing, and see if it matches the things you should be doing to achieve prosperity.

6. If you want to lead a happy, healthy, and prosperous life, then you must accept first that this can be your destiny. Once you are able to recognize and believe in that premise, you too can enjoy that life. At that point it comes down to creating and working a smart plan to accomplish that goal.

What does this all really mean?

They are millions of people in this world, and what makes some people more prosperous than others? Of course there are a variety of factors. But, your attitude plays a big part. There are a number of things you can do to develop a prosperity mindset in addition to studying the example of successful people in your field.

1.As mentioned previously, search out and model the success stories of others, especially as it pertains to your industry. Know that there are many, many others who have become super successful doing what you want to do.
2.Take a super successful person in your industry to lunch and pick their brain. Ask them for recommendations on how you can be successful and for contacts of friends who might help you succeed.
3.Cultivate a relationship with a successful mentor.
4.Create a network of successful prosperous friends with positive attitudes.
5.Create a team of professionals dedicated to helping you succeed.
6.Practice positive prosperity affirmations.
7.Get in the habit of seeing opportunity everywhere - it is!
8.Create multiple streams of income.
9.Focus on one great money-making system and develop it, get it running automatically and then develop another.
10. Project an image of super success and wealth and you will attract more of the same.
11. Give generously to others. Give your time, money, advice, and help. It will return magnified and multiplied.

Those who go into any project with a prosperity mindset expect to succeed. And, those who expect to succeed and do everything in their power to make it happen stand a much better chance of actually succeeding. The confidence and power that you project to others in your ideas or product often get reflected back to you. Believe in your product and others will. Believe in yourself and others will...

Realize that your true wealth comes from within you and that you are prosperous regardless of the externals. Be totally responsible for everything that happens in your life even if you don't think you are. Treat yourself and others as individuals of importance and success and you will likewise be treated in the same manner.

Carry yourself with a prosperity mindset and look for opportunities for personal and financial growth at every turn. You will find them.
