Do you ever wish you earned more money? Sometimes you want more money to treat yourself to a new pair of shoes, go on a luxury vacation to a tropical island, or purchase your dream car. Nothing deters your ambition to earn more money than negative self talk. To turn your negativity around, you need to replace self defeating thoughts with positive affirmations and quotes explaining how to earn more money and why you deserve it.

When you start reciting positive quotes, you will start to build the confidence you need to work smarter and ask your boss for a raise. When you approach your boss with confidence, he is more likely to take you seriously and believe in your worth to earn more money.

As you build your confidence and strategize the best way to ask for a raise, make sure you recite these five inspirational quotes to earn more money:

“To become convinced that you can succeed is the first requisite to success.” -Wallace D. Wattles

You must believe in yourself and your ability to accomplish anything you set out to do. When you convince yourself that you can succeed, you set yourself up to get what you want. No matter your circumstances, tell yourself that you deserve to have affluence in your life.

“It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link to the chain of destiny can be handled at a time.” -Sir Winston Churchill

Even though you have the ability to become a multimillionaire, don’t get upset if it doesn’t happen overnight. You need to take baby steps to build your business or demonstrate your competence for a raise. Set an income goal with a deadline and construct a simple plan to achieve it. Now all you have to do is execute it. Just remember to be patient with yourself and take one task at a time.

    “An unfulfilled vocation drains the color from a man’s existence.” -Honoré de Balzac

    You must be wildly passionate about your work. If not, find another job because life is too short to be miserable. Manifest your hobbies and talents into your job because society values people who care about their work. The more skilled you become, your value and monetary compensation will increase.

    “Try to become not a man of success, but rather a man of value.” -Albert Einstein

    Success is in the eye of the beholder. Your friends and family are not afraid to tell you what you are good at. Listen to them and use those skills while you work. People will pay you for your work when it adds value to their immediate needs.

    “If you try to please everyone, you might as well kiss your ass good bye!” -Michael Port

    When you try to please everyone, you’re bound to disappoint someone. Quit trying to please everyone and follow your ideal career path. You will continue to earn more money when you’re a leader in your area of expertise.

      While you contemplate these quotes, keep in mind there are two ways to have more money:

      1. You can spend less

      By spending less, you are able to put money away in your savings. The money you save over the long term can go towards a financial goal. A few ways you can spend less include limiting the amount of Starbucks lattes you buy, using public transportation instead of a car, or decreasing the amount you spend on rent.

      2. You can earn more

      When you earn more money, you are able to increase your net worth. Earning more can help you build long term financial investments, donate to charitable causes of your choice, and indulge in guilt-free purchases. A few ways to earn more money include asking for a raise at work, building a lucrative business from scratch, and investing wisely.

      Keep income goals in line with your values

      In either scenario, make sure your financial goals are realistic. If you are going to ask your boss for a raise, remember to write down your contributions to the company and why you deserve a raise.

      10 Proven Ways to Judge a Person’s Character

      10 Proven Ways to Judge a Person’s Character

      We all fall into the trap of judging a person’s character by their appearance. How wrong we are! All too often, the real character of the person only appears when some negative event hits them or you. Then you may see a toxic person emerging from the ruins and it is often a shock.

      A truly frightening example is revealed in the book by O’Toole in Bowman called Dangerous Instincts: How Gut Instincts Betray Us. A perfectly respectable, charming, well dressed neighbor was found to have installed a torture chamber in his garage where he was systematically abusing kidnapped women. This is an extreme example, but it does show how we can be totally deceived by a person’s physical appearance, manners and behavior.

      So, what can you do? You want to be able to assess personal qualities when you come into contact with colleagues, fresh acquaintances and new friends who might even become lifelong partners. You want to know if they are:

      • honest
      • reliable
      • competent
      • kind and compassionate
      • capable of taking the blame
      • able to persevere
      • modest and humble
      • pacific and can control anger.

      The secret is to reserve judgment and take your time. Observe them in certain situations; look at how they react. Listen to them talking, joking, laughing, explaining, complaining, blaming, praising, ranting, and preaching. Only then will you be able to judge their character. This is not foolproof, but if you follow the 10 ways below, you have a pretty good chance of not ending up in an abusive relationship.

      1. Is anger a frequent occurrence?

      All too often, angry reactions which may seem to be excessive are a sign that there are underlying issues. Do not think that every person who just snaps and throws his/her weight around mentally and physically is just reacting normally. Everyone has an occasional angry outburst when driving or when things go pear-shaped.

      But if this is almost a daily occurrence, then you need to discover why and maybe avoid that person. Too often, anger will escalate to violent and aggressive behavior. You do not want to be near someone who thinks violence can solve personal or global problems.

      2. Can you witness acts of kindness?

      How often do you see this person being kind and considerate? Do they give money to beggars, donate to charity, do voluntary work or in some simple way show that they are willing to share the planet with about 7 billion other people?

      I was shocked when a guest of mine never showed any kindness to the weak and disadvantaged people in our town. She was ostensibly a religious person, but I began to doubt the sincerity of her beliefs.

      “The best index to a person’s character is how he treats people who can’t do him any good, and how he treats people who can’t fight back.”

      Abigail Van Buren

      3. How does this person take the blame?

      Maybe you know that s/he is responsible for a screw-up in the office or even in not turning up on time for a date. Look at their reaction. If they start blaming other colleagues or the traffic, well, this is an indication that they are not willing to take responsibility for their mistakes.

      4. Don’t use Facebook as an indicator.

      You will be relieved to know that graphology (the study of that forgotten skill of handwriting) is no longer considered a reliable test of a person’s character. Neither is Facebook stalking, fortunately. A study showed that Facebook use of foul language, sexual innuendo and gossip were not reliable indicators of a candidate’s character or future performance in the workplace.

      5. Read their emails.

      Now a much better idea is to read the person’s emails. Studies show that the use of the following can indicate certain personality traits:

      • Too many exclamation points may reveal a sunny disposition
      • Frequent errors may indicate apathy
      • Use of smileys is the only way a person can smile at you
      • Use of the third person may reveal a certain formality
      • Too many question marks can show anger
      • Overuse of capital letters is regarded as shouting. They are a definite no-no in netiquette, yet a surprising number of  people still use them.

      6. Watch out for the show offs.

      Listen to people as they talk. How often do they mention their achievements, promotions, awards and successes? If this happens a lot, it is a sure indication that this person has an over-inflated view of his/her achievements. They are unlikely to be modest or show humility. What a pity!  Another person to avoid.

      7. Look for evidence of perseverance.

      A powerful indicator of grit and tenacity is when a person persists and never gives up when they really want to achieve a life goal. Look for evidence of them keeping going in spite of enormous difficulties.

      Advertising

      Great achievements by scientists and inventors all bear the hallmark of perseverance. We only have to think of Einstein, Edison (who failed thousands of times) and Nelson Mandela to get inspiration. The US Department of Education is in no doubt about how grit, tenacity and perseverance will be key success factors for youth in the 21st century.

      8. Their empathy score is high.

      Listen to how they talk about the less fortunate members of our society such as the poor, immigrants and the disabled. Do you notice that they talk in a compassionate way about these people? The fact that they even mention them is a strong indicator of empathy.

      People with zero empathy will never talk about the disadvantaged. They will rarely ask you a question about a difficult time or relationship. They will usually steer the conversation back to themselves. These people have zero empathy and in extreme cases, they are psychopaths who never show any feelings towards their victims.

      9. Learn how to be socially interactive.

      We are social animals and this is what makes us so uniquely human. If a person is isolated or a loner, this may be a negative indicator of their character. You want to meet a person who knows about trust, honesty and loyalty. The only way to practice these great qualities is to actually interact socially. The great advantage is that you can share problems and celebrate success and joy together.

      “One can acquire everything in solitude, except character.”

      Stendhal

       10. Avoid toxic people.

      These people are trying to control others and often are failing to come to terms with their own failures. Typical behavior and conversations may concern:

      • Envy or jealousy
      • Criticism of partners, colleagues and friends
      • Complaining about their own lack of success
      • Blaming others for their own bad luck or failure
      • Obsession with themselves and their problems

      Listen to these people talk and you will quickly discover that you need to avoid them at all costs because their negativity will drag you down. In addition, as much as you would like to help them, you are not qualified to do so.

      Now, having looked at some of the best ways to judge a person, what about yourself? How do others see you? Why not take Dr. Phil’s quiz and find out. Can you bear it?
