7 Things You Haven’t Tried To Make Yourself Rich

What have you tried to make yourself rich? Maybe you’ve tried getting a new job or asking for a promotion, playing the lotto, buying a house, maxing out your 401K, or something else. What if there were simpler things you could do to make yourself rich? You can do some of the tips below in your pajamas, others you’d have to take some external action. Here are several ideas, including a few you may not have even tried yet:

1. Give money or donate

Donating money shows that you believe money is good. It is not only a thing to pay a bill or buy a car with, but multiplied with the money of others it can influence somebody else’s life. It’s self-empowering. Giving money away also nurtures the feeling of gratefulness, another way to build the right mindset for more money.

2. Appreciate what you already have

Yes, gratefulness again. Most of the world’s richest, including Oprah Winfrey, have touted the importance of making a gratitude list everyday. It keeps your brain fine tuned to looking for what’s right in your life, instead of what’s wrong.

3. Have a plan or vision

Statistics show that working a 9-5 is rarely the to path to riches. Starting your own business and succeeding at it can make you rich. Even a home-based business can grow to millions. One example of that is the makeup millionaire, Mary Kay. If you need help, enlist a life coach or mentor who can guide your steps on the path to making yourself rich.

4. Play money games

You’re probably taking money too seriously. You get it, spend it, cry over it, curse it, and ask for more. No wonder money seems elusive. Why not have a little fun with it? Here are a few ideas:

  • Keep $100 in your pocket at all times and don’t use it. The feeling it sends to your brain will be a sense of security that you already have what you need.
  • Write a pretend “check” for $1,000 today and pretend to spend it. Write a $2,000 check the next day, then $3,000 and so on. You’d be surprised how hard it is to think of things to spend your money on outside of bills and savings.
  • For more games, check out some books by Esther Hicks.

5. Read

Devour all the money inspiration books you can. Not just spirituality-based money books, but business books too. Find out how others make their money, how they spend it, and multiply it. Soak it all up!

6. Talk to your future self

This technique has been around for a long time. It works by imagining yourself in the future–in six months, a year, five years, and so on down the line. Ask your future self how they solved your current problems. Ask your future self for support. It may feel uncomfortable at first, but many athletes use this for motivation and focus.

7. Start a daily practice

What do you do first thing in the mornings? Do you have a routine that you do at any particular time of the day? Cultivate a daily practice that is the same every day. Write down three things you want to create and a gratitude list. This is a good, simple start. Do it every day until you are comfortable enough to add something else. You’ll soon start to see money creep up in small chunks, like change on the ground or unexpected checks. Eventually, as you build momentum, money and ideas will seem to be all around you.

You can make yourself rich internally. As your brain catches up with the feelings, opportunities will abound. When they come up, you have to take some sort of external action to realize your potential and vision. If you’re not rich yet, but are still breathing, you still have a chance to change your life.
