How to create a Positive Money Mindset

and set yourself up for success

‘To have money you have to manifest money.’ I’m sure you have all heard this phrase or something similar. 

Why shifting your mindset around money can change your business for better

I’m writing this post on the third day of the new year and as usual I’m trying to prioritize new business goals.

I know, It’s not easy to stay on track during the year. Life can and will get in the way and change our plans multiple times. That of course, doesn’t mean we shouldn’t plan at all. 

This year apart from making a work schedule (daily and monthly), it is a priority of mine to work on my mindset about making an income online.

For ordinary people like myself, money is an aspect of our lives that can either lift us up or put us down. Not having financial stability can be the cause of self doubt and a feeling of worthlessness. It can be the root of every day anxiety or even chronic stress.

Can manifesting more money attract what you wish for financially?

To be honest, I don’t fully understand the value of manifestation in one’s life, but this year I intend to be more mindful with my business and try to manifest the financial stability I aim for. 

I’m curious to find out if changing my mindset around finances will affect my decisions and bring me the results I’m hoping for.

In a year from now, I hope I will be able to share my experience with you and discuss how it went.

Now, let’s explore 5 simple steps you can implement in your everyday life to become and stay positive throughout the year. 

Steps # 1 : Set realistic financial goals and celebrate the small financial wins

First and foremost, setting realistic goals about income as a business owner is probably the most important task you have to prioritize.

Don’t be vague about the amount of money you want to make this month. Be very specific.

If you are just starting, telling yourself you want to become a millionaire by the end of the year is not such a clever idea. Because it won’t happen. And you will get disappointed and disheartened really soon. And you will give up. For me, telling myself I want to achieve 2000 euros/month by the end of the first six months and 4000 euros/month by the end of the year, is a realistic goal.

After that, break your goal into smaller manageable steps. These steps will get you closer to your ultimate objective. Try to focus on each one and celebrate even the slightest success.

Step # 2 : Learn from your mistakes

Another reason why many people have a negative mindset about money abundance, is not accepting the mistakes and losses as part of the game. Millionaires have lost money before they made their fortune. View financial mistakes as learning experiences rather than failures. Understand what went wrong and use it as an opportunity to grow and improve your financial decision-making.

Not being too harsh on yourself will set you up for future success. You’ll stop fear losses and simply start accumulating wealth, whatever that means for you.

Step # 3 : Avoid comparisons

Comparisons are your enemy. We all do it from time to time. It’s human. That doesn’t mean it does our businesses any good.

Think of it this way. No matter how successful your business is and how big your annual revenue, there will always -and I mean always- be someone out here doing better. It’s a vicious circle which you don’t want to enter. Everyone has a unique financial journey.

Also don’t forget that how others present their lifestyle is not always the truth.

Step # 4 : Practice mindfulness and focus on abundance

Consider each day as a new opportunity to grow your business, attract customers, build trust and expand your income streams. Be mindful today. Yes, it is essential you have a business plan for the years to come, but don’t overthink about it now.

On the other hand, you need to cultivate a mindset of financial abundance rather than scarcity.

Believe that there are opportunities for growth and approach financial challenges as opportunities to learn and to improve.

Visualization can reinforce a positive mindset and keep you motivated. 

Step # 5 : Surround yourself with positivity

Not all of us are lucky enough to have a supportive group of people to encourage us and cheer for every little step we take.

Family, spouses and friends won’t necessarily understand what your business is about. They might bring you down and trigger your already low self esteem. Some people might do this unintentionally, because they themselves don’t have a positive mindset.

Others might do it on purpose, because let’s be honest. Many people feel better not by improving their situation in life but by judging and bringing down others.

That’s the reality of our society. Our responsibility is to close our ears to all the negativity and if that’s impossible to do, we may need to keep some people out of our lives.

Surround yourself with well mannered and confident people. The ones who can be your mentors, inspire you and motivate you when you feel like giving up. 

Money Mindset

Like all things in life, change takes time and belief. Shifting our mindset to focus on generating constant online income requires a combination of skills: positive attitude, strategic thinking and consistent effort.

We all have to remember it is an ongoing process. So the only way to achieve positivity is by being patient and embracing the journey towards financial well being, with all the highs and lows.
