8 Ways of Thinking To Make You Become Rich

You may not know this, but your thoughts can affect your life. Thoughts are things. Scientists have measured vibrations of people’s thoughts and emotions, and they have found that positive, happy thoughts like love and appreciation vibrate very quickly. However, thoughts like fear, frustration, and envy vibrate very slowly. The phenomenon called the Law of Attraction explains the connection between your thoughts and your life – even your financial situation. In order to become rich, you must first be aware of the thoughts you have about money. If you find that you have any negative thoughts, you need to change them ASAP if you want to become rich. Here are 8 ways you can do that.

1. Believe you are worthy.

Many people in our culture have low self-esteem. We are constantly bombarded with messages about how we are “not good enough.” Whether you compare your beauty to super models or your bank account to Oprah’s, you need to believe that you genuinely have something to offer the world. You have a special gift and talent that will help you become rich. Rich people don’t have a problem promoting themselves, their services, or their business. That is because they believe they are worthy. You need to think that too.

2. Believe it’s possible.

How many times did you hear your parents say things like, “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” Or, “Do you think I’m made of money?” Many of us have been negatively programmed to think that money is scarce. It is not. There is plenty of money out there for the taking. You just need to believe that deserve your “piece of the pie.” Anything is possible. But you need to believe that before it happens.

3. Appreciate what you already have.

If you sit around thinking, “I don’t like my house, I wish I had a bigger one.” Or, “I can’t wait to get a new car because I’m embarrassed to drive this one,” you are sending out negative vibrations with your thoughts. According to the Law of Attraction, negative, slow-moving thoughts will not create anything positive. Instead, you need to love your house or your car. Or simply be grateful that you have a roof over your head, a bed to sleep in, or food on your table. The more you give appreciation to what you already have, the more likely it will be that you will be able to acquire more.

4. Be happy for rich people.

Sometimes people hear negative statements about rich people. Do any of these sound familiar: “Rich people are snobs” or “Rich people aren’t honest” or “Rich people are selfish.” If you heard this a lot growing up, then your subconscious mind is programmed with negative thinking about rich people. And your subconscious probably won’t let you become rich because you certainly don’t want to be a “snob,” “dishonest,” or “selfish.” Instead, realize that many rich people are very good human beings. Believe they deserve what they have. Bless them, and say a ‘thank you’ in advance for becoming rich yourself.

5. Use affirmations or vision boards.

Writing out positive statements (affirmations) and repeating them over and over in your mind helps re-program your brain. If you found in #4 that you think rich people are snobs, then repeat an affirmation such as, “Rich people are generous, kind, and loving people. I am appreciative that I will be one of them someday.” Vision boards are helpful too. Get a poster board and cut out words and photos of things you want. It could be a new car, a big house, a private jet, or your own yacht. Whatever feels good and gets you excited is appropriate to put on the board. Use your affirmations and your vision board together for maximum results.

6. Love money.

I’ve heard people say, “I hate money!” And my jaw always drops to the floor. How can you hate money? Well, the reason they hate money is because they don’t have any. That doesn’t mean that they really HATE money. They just hate the LACK of money. So you need to catch yourself if you keep saying negative things about money. Turn them around and say “I love money! Money is my friend! It brings me great joy!” The more that you put the positive vibrations of love towards the subject of money, the more you will acquire it.

7. Be happy paying your bills.

I’m sure you have had a pit in your stomach before when you are paying bills. Most people have. That is because their focus is on the negative. All they think about is how much money is going out, not coming in. But you need to reframe that. Be happy when you pay your bills. Because guess what? That means that you actually have the money to pay them! If you weren’t paying them, that would mean you don’t have any money. So be grateful for having the money to pay out. After all, it does provide you with a place to live, a car to drive, and food on your table. That’s a good thing!

8. Commit to being rich.

Finally, you just need to decide to be rich! Don’t take no for an answer! Don’t give up! In order to accomplish anything in life, you need to be committed. You can’t simply treat “getting rich” as a hobby, or something that you’ll just try out and see what happens. It doesn’t work that way. Rich people are dedicated to doing whatever it takes to make money and keep it! You need to do the same. Commit to your goal of being rich, and it will be yours.

33 Painless Ways to Save Money Now

In a difficult economy, most of us are looking for ways to put more money in our pockets, but we don’t want to feel like misers. We don’t want to drastically alter our lifestyles either. We want it fast and we want it easy. Small savings can add up and big savings can feel like winning the lottery, just without all of the taxes.

Some easy ways to save money:

  1. Online rebate sites. Many online sites offer cash back rebates and online coupons as well. MrRebates and Ebates are two I like, but there are many others.
  2. Sign up for customer rewards. Many of your favorite stores offer customer rewards on products you already buy. Take advantage.
  3. Switch to compact fluorescent bulbs. The extra cost up front is worth the energy savings later on.
  4. Turn off power strips and electronic devices when not in use.
  5. Buy a programmable thermostat. Set it to lower the heat or raise the AC when you’re not home.
  6. Make coffee at home. Those lattes and caramel macchiatos add up to quite a bit of dough over the year.
  7. Switch banks. Shop around for better interest rates, lower fees and better customer perks. Don’t forget to look for free online banking and ease of depositing and withdrawing money.
  8. Clip coupons: Saving a couple dollars here and there can start to add up. As long as you’re going to buy the products anyway, why not save money?
  9. Pack your lunch. Bring your lunch to work with you a few days a week, rather than buy it.
  10. Eat at home. We’re busier than ever, but cooking meals at home is healthier and much cheaper than take-out or going out. Plus, with all of the freezer and pre-made options, it’s almost as fast as drive-thru.
  11. Have leftovers night. Save your leftovers from a few meals and have a “leftover dinner.” It’s a free meal!
  12. Buy store brands: Many generic or store brands are actually just as good as name brands and considerably cheaper.
  13. Ditch bottled water. Drink tap water if it’s good quality, buy a filter if it’s not. Get 
      a reusable water bottle and refill it.
    • Avoid vending machines: The items are usually over-priced.
    • Take in a matinee. Afternoon movie showings are cheaper than evening times.
    • Re-examine your cable bill. Cancel extra cable or satellite channels you don’t watch. Watch the “on demand” movie purchases too.
    • Use online bill pay. Most banks offer free online bill paying. Save on stamps and checks, and avoid late fees by automating bill payment.
    • Buy frequently used items in bulk. You get a lower per item price and eliminate extra trips to the store later on.
    • Fully utilize the library. Borrowing books is much cheaper than buying them, but in addition to books, most local libraries now lend movies and games.
    • Cancel magazine/newspaper subscriptions: Re-evaluate your subscriptions. Cancel those you don’t read and consider reading some of the other publications online.
    • Get rid of your land-line. Do you really need a land-line anymore if everyone in the family has a cell phone? Alternatively, look into using VOIP or getting a cheaper plan.
    • Better fuel efficiency. Check the air pressure in your tires, keep up with proper auto maintenance, and slow down. Driving even 5MPH slower will result in better fuel mileage.
    • Increase your deductibles. Increasing the insurance deductibles on your homeowners and auto insurance policies lowers premiums significantly. Just make sure you choose a deductible that you can afford should an emergency happen.
    • Choose lunch over dinner. If you do want to dine out occasionally, go at lunchtime rather than dinnertime. Lunch prices are usually cheaper.
    • Buy used:  Whether it’s something small like a vintage dress or a video game or something big like a car or furniture, consider buying it used. You can often get “nearly new” for a fraction of the cost.
    • Stick to the list. Make a list before you go shopping and don’t buy anything that’s not on the list unless it’s a once in a lifetime, killer deal.
    • Tame the impulse. Use a self-enforced waiting period whenever you’re tempted to make an unplanned purchase. Wait for a week and see if you still want the item.
    • Don’t be afraid to ask. Ask to have fees waived, ask for a discount, ask for a lower interest rate on your credit card.
    • Repair rather than replace. You can find directions on how to fix almost anything on the internet. Do your homework, and then bring out your inner handyman.
    • Trade with your neighbors. Borrow tools or equipment that you use infrequently and swap things like babysitting with your neighbors.
    • Swap online. Use sites like PaperBack Swap to trade books, music, and movies with others online. Also, look for local community sites like Freecycle where people give away items they no longer need.
    • Cut back on the meat. Try eating a one or two meatless meals every week or cut back on the meat portions. Meat is usually the most expensive part of the meal.
    • Comparison shop: Get in the habit of checking prices before you buy. See if you can get a better price at another store or look online.

    Remember that saving money is not about being cheap or stingy; it’s about putting money into your bank account rather than giving it to someone else. There are many ways to save money, some you’ve never thought of, and some that won’t appeal or apply to you. Just pick a few of the ideas that sound doable and watch the savings add up. Save big, save small, but save wherever you can.
