1. Abundance Abound

The first thing you must understand is that there is plenty of money out there.

In fact, there is too much money.

The only reason anyone struggles with money is because they don’t know how to play the game.

Money is just a game.

And once you understand how to play the game, you will have as much money as you want.

2. Think Positively About Money

People who struggle financially usually do so because they fear the lack of money.

This creates a negative downward spiral because negative thoughts around money creates more fear by tapping into our fear of survival which is a very old subconscious fear we have had for thousands of years.

So you must transform this fear and not let it get the best of you.

People who are wealthy are very confident. They think and believe they are valuable so they attract that in their life.

3. Set Financial Goals

You must know what you want and have clearly defined financial goals.

Yes, having a monthly budget is good. But this is more about having bigger goals beyond your current means.

You need to give yourself something to shoot for so that you have a reason why you want to make more money.

It could be a house, a car, traveling, retirement, or paying off debt. Just make sure you have clearly defined goals.

4. Have A Plan & Take Action

Once you have some goals, create a plan of how you want to accomplish them.

Chunk them down by month, week, and then day. This will make it much easier for you to get things done.

5. Invest In Yourself

Whatever plans you put into place, make sure you invest in yourself.

Spend the time and money to improve your skills so that you can execute your plans.

Don’t be afraid to spend money on yourself.

You are the best investment you can make.

6. Deliver Value & Solve Problems

One of the easiest and most rewarding ways of making money is to deliver value and solve problems.

The world is filled with people who need something done.

All you need to do is find those people and then help them.

Once you do, and do it well, people will throw money at you hand over fist.

7. Time Is Your Greatest Asset

As you can see by many of the quotes here about money, time is your most valuable asset.

Use it wisely.

Be laser focused each day.

Turn off social media and your phone and get sh*t done.

Stop wasting time!

8. Diversify

As the saying goes, “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”

Yes, it is important to be laser focused on one thing.

But its also good to find one or two other things to nudge along so that you have a few things going.

Just don’t spread yourself thin.
