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. With an increased salary comes more responsibility, so it’s important to remember your values and remind yourself why you want more money in the first place. You deserve to have more money to enjoy high quality experiences and possessions, so don’t forget to recite these five inspirational quotes to earn more money.

      11 Tips for Maintaining a Positive Attitude Every Day

      11 Tips for Maintaining a Positive Attitude Every Day

      Maintaining a positive attitude is critical when you want to achieve anything or simply improve the quality of your life. Most success literature will talk about the power of positive thinking and how important it is, but it’s often easier said than done.

      In this article, you’ll find 11 tips for maintaining your positive attitude no matter what’s going on in your life.

      1. You Determine Your Reality

      It’s important to realize that you determine your reality by the way you react to the outside world. When something happens, you get to choose whether it’s a positive or negative situation and react accordingly.

      For example, if you lose your job, your first reaction will likely be one of anger, frustration, and hopelessness. However, what if you were able to turn those emotions around and look at that experience as an opportunity.

      You now have the chance to find a job where you will be able to learn new skills and perhaps even be happier. And in the meantime, you have some free time to analyze what direction you want the next stage of your life to go in.

      2. Start Your Day Strong

      Most people have to drag themselves out of bed, and this sets a negative state of mind for their entire day. Positive people create a long-term morning ritual that reinforces how great life is and how happy they are to be alive.

      I used to wake up and immediately turn on Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life to get me into a positive mood. Now I start my day by reading or listening to something positive. Whether you have 1 minute, 15 minutes, or an hour to dedicate to your ritual, you can start the day in a way that helps you feel relaxed and ready for the day ahead.

      Cultivate a positive attitude with a great morning routine.

        3. Exercise Is the Natural Feel-Good Drug

        Exercise is a great way to maintain a good attitude because of all the positive chemicals it releases into the bloodstream.

        One study found that between groups who participated in high-intensity interval training, moderate continuous training, and no exercise, those in the second group experienced the greatest drop in depressive symptoms and stress[1]. Therefore, if you’re looking to exercise to help you feel good, get your heart rate up, but don’t push too hard or you may increase overall stress.

        Also, remember that exercise can include many activities. If you don’t like running, try dancing or kickboxing instead. Put on some upbeat music to kick up the positive vibes even more.

        4. Use Books, Audio and Videos to Overload Your Brain with Positivity

        There are millions of amazing books, podcasts, and videos for you to absorb from people who are inspiring and living the life of their dreams. Tap into their positive emotions and their experience by learning how they think and what they do to create the lives they want.

        You can do this in the morning or while exercising, eating, commuting, cooking, cleaning… there’s always time for positivity.

        5. Your Language Shapes Your Thoughts

        Little changes in your language can change the way you think and how you act. Whenever someone greets you and asks how you’re doing, do you answer with “fine” or “not too bad”? Think about just what this language is communicating to others… and yourself.

        Advertising

        I always answer with “great,” “fantastic,” or “amazing.” Not only does this remind me that life really is great, but it usually helps the other person shift toward a positive attitude as well.

        Also, take some time to look at the way your inner voice talks to you. Is that language positive or negative? If it’s overly critical or negative, it may be time to tap into some mindfulness meditation in order to shift your inner critic to an inner cheerleader.

        6. Hang out With Positive People

        It is often said that you will have a similar level of health, income and lifestyle as the five people you spend the most time with.

        So if you want to be fit, then start to hang out with fit people. Want to start a business? Then hang out with business owners. And if you want to be positive, make sure you’re hanging out with positive people[2].

        7. Show Your Appreciation for Others

        By appreciating others for a job well done, their outfit, or their smile, you start to cause a positive chain reaction. Stop complaining and focus on all the good others are doing around you.

        Don’t you feel great when you receive a compliment from someone else? Well, if you want to receive more, then start giving them out and watch what happens to the people around you.

        One particular study found that people who sent letters of gratitude experienced significant increases in happiness scores[3]. If you don’t feel like writing a letter, send a nice text to someone who recently helped you out, or send an email thanking your coworker for always helping pick up the slack around the office. Whatever it is, take some time to show gratitude.

        8. Garbage In, Garbage Out

        This is an expression from programming where the result is only as good as the input. If you’re feeding yourself with negativity all day long, then it’s pretty obvious you’re going to be feeling negative as well.

        A great deal of the media thrives on negativity. Put yourself on a negativity diet (including people) and watch how much easier it is to maintain your positive attitude.

        9. Stop Negative Thoughts in Their Tracks

        It’s hard to be a constantly positive person, and negative thoughts are going to bubble up from time to time. These will be more frequent in the beginning but can decrease as you practice the tips we’re talking about. When you start to notice negative thoughts, you can use a pattern interrupt to stop them in their tracks.

        The idea is to interrupt your current thought pattern and shift to a more positive outlook. One way to do this is to set a visual or auditory cue. It can be something as simple as a bracelet you wear each day or the sound of a car passing outside your window. Whenever you see or hear the cue, use it to shift your thoughts to something positive.

        You can learn more on how to shift your mindset and negative attitudes in the following video:

        10. Live With Gratitude

        So many positive things happen during our day, and we often ignore them while letting one negative comment or event ruin our mood. It can help to keep a gratitude journal where you jot down things you are grateful for each night or during the day.

        If you’re reading this, then you probably live with a roof over your head and food in your belly, which is a daily struggle for a large portion of the world. However, we often take these things for granted and don’t realize just how great we have it.

        Advertising

        Try refocusing your thoughts towards everything you do have instead of what you don’t. One study found that reflecting on past experiences with a sense of gratitude can lead to increases in both hope and happiness[4]. That’s a great reason to give it a go today.

        You can find more ways to practice gratitude in this article.

        11. Recharge Your Batteries

        One key to adopting a positive attitude is taking the time to recharge your batteries. This might mean taking a few hours on the weekend to read a positive book or taking a few weeks for a holiday.

        If you’re not in the position to travel, you can take a staycation, or have a “home holiday” where you simply switch off from the outside world and spend time doing things you love.

        Final Thoughts

        You now have 11 tips for maintaining your positive attitude, but they are no use to you unless you implement them into your life.

        Start small, and pick the easiest tip or the one that you really love and introduce it into your life starting right now. Then, over time, start implementing the other tips and watch your positivity soar.
