What goes on in our minds affects everything, and I mean everything, including how much money we have.
I know this for a fact because when I first started out, I worked hard, but I just couldn’t build a profitable business. Then, one day, a family friend told me that rich people have a certain mindset and to be successful, I needed to adopt that mindset, too.
With nothing to lose, I dove into studying the psychology of the wealthiest people in the world. My advice-giver was right — rich people really do think differently!
I began modeling them, and you know what? It worked! I started a retail fitness store that did so well, I opened nine more. A mere two-and-a-half years later, I sold the business for $1.6 million.
Since mastering my mind, I’ve become a multi-multi-multi-multi-millionaire. And not only that, I’m happier, healthier, and have more time to spend with my family.
So, friends, I can tell you for sure that mastering your mind WILL change your life.
Need more proof? I’ve got plenty.
Read on below as I share some of the most frequent thoughts that keep people from getting rich, and some examples of well-known figures who overcame those same thoughts to become extremely successful.
Thought #1: “I might fail.”
Did you know Bill Gates’ first company was a total bust? He and his friend Paul Allen started a company called Traf-O-Data. Their goal was to end traffic jams. Unfortunately, their device failed during demo, and their business went down with it.
The good news is their mindset was right: instead of wallowing in despair, they learned from their mistakes, looked for new opportunities, and kept believing they could be the best software creators out there.
They formed Microsoft a couple years later, and that company led to Bill becoming the youngest billionaire ever. I’d say it worked out okay, wouldn’t you?
You may be wondering, “Harv, why’d you tell a story where failure actually happened? That doesn’t make me feel better!“
It’s because Bill never let fear of failure — or even actual failure — stop him.
Like the Energizer Bunny, he just kept going, and, man, did he win big time. That’s what a successful entrepreneur does.
Let’s be real. It’s possible and even likely that you’ll have some form of failure in your work. But it’s also possible you’ll succeed — maybe even beyond your wildest imagination!
Mastering your mind is the most powerful thing you can do to steer yourself down the road to success! This is something I explain in more detail in my free web class, “Don’t Believe A Thought You Think.” Click here to learn more.
Thought #2: “I don’t have the time or energy for something new.”
J.K. (Jo) Rowling started writing the first Harry Potter book as a single, divorced, depressed mom on welfare. She was at rock bottom, but she knew — knew — she was supposed to tell Harry’s story.
So whenever Jo could, she lugged her typewriter (and often her young daughter) to coffee shops, and she wrote. Then she sent queries to 13 publishers until one finally said yes.
Jo’s determined, disciplined mindset helped her push through all the obstacles seemingly — and notice I said seemingly — in her way.
Now her net worth is $650 million, the Harry Potter books make up seven of the top ten all-time best-sellers, and her stories have been turned into movies, theme parks, and more.
With some creativity and willpower, you really can find the time and energy to make your dreams come true.
Thought #3: “People will think I’m crazy.”
Have you ever taken a Disney vacation?
If so, that was possible because Walt Disney ignored all the people who said he was nuts to even think about building Disneyland.
Walt just didn’t care. He plowed ahead and invested his own money into the project.
Six decades later, there are over 500 Disney resorts, hotels, cruises, and adventures. If that’s not inspiration to dismiss the doubters in your life, I don’t know what is.
When you stop caring about other people’s opinions — and that scared, cynical voice in your head — it’s much easier to be successful.
The good news is that I can teach you how. Keep reading to find out more!
Thought #4: “I can’t.”
Everyone knows Helen Keller went blind and deaf as a toddler. Then Annie Sullivan entered the picture, taught Helen American Sign Language, and the rest, as they say, is history.
But do you know the full story?
Helen also learned Braille and even how to speak. She became fluent in English, French, German, Italian, and Latin. She could write block letters and “listen” to people by feeling their mouths with her hands. She was the first deafblind person to earn a bachelor’s degree (cum laude!), and she went on to become a successful writer, activist, and speaker who traveled to 35 countries. She started her own charity and co-founded the ACLU. And she even performed a little vaudeville!
I know “I can’t” may be a frequent flier inside your mind, but I also know most of the time it’s wrong.
If Helen Keller can do so much without being able to see or hear, there’s no doubt you can be a success, too! Yes or yes?
