Rich People Focus on Making More Money and Not on Their Expenses (and So Should You)

making more money

The year 2018 is here. Are you ready to change your mindset and start making more money? Are you now ready to stop procrastinating and stop making excuses? Have you challenged yourself that this year you will be a totally different person as far as money management and that you’re ready to take your income to the next level? Are you now ready to take on that challenge?

Have you ever stopped to consider why it is that all other things being equal, such as intelligence, education or common sense that some people created for themselves massive wealth and others have not?

Do you sometimes wonder how rich people become richer and wealthier? Have you ever considered why it is that less than 5% of the population is massively wealthy and the rest are not?

You could say they were lucky, or you could start to ask yourself why is that? Maybe it has something to do with focus. However, not focus for focus sake, but focus on the right things. I will make a very bold statement right now.

Your thoughts create a person’s  reality, and a person will get what they focus on!

The simple truth of the matter is that your subconscious mind will simply say yes to what you are focused on and that is what the law of attraction or creation is. It is part of your Reticular Activating System (RAS).

You simply get what you focus on. It is like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

If you focus on getting some ill-health that is what you get. If you focus on wanting you to get more wanting. If you focus on your expenses and your debt, you get more debt. If you simply focus on making more money or wealth, you get more money or wealth.

Now just take a few moments now to see if I am correct in this. Look at something you would consider positive in your life. Did you get it because at the time you focused on it?

How about something negative in your life? Was there something in your mindset at the time that allowed it to become part of your life. Before your ego shuts this down on you, take the time to observe your life in light of these questions.

You see, the wealthy never focus on their lack, such as expenses or debt. They focus on making more money or wealth and that is what they get, more money and wealth. It really is that simple!

Do you know how many successful people declared bankruptcy? Quite a few. Henry Ford filed bankruptcy twice before making it big in the automobile industry. Do you think he focused on his bankruptcy or his creative mind and determination to build an automobile company? History tells us the answer to that.

So how is it that Henry Ford had to go through two bankruptcies before he was successful? Did he think about losing his first two businesses? Maybe, maybe not. Maybe he just considered it part of the learning curve in his focus that he was right in creating a successful car manufacturing company.

You see, he focused on the end result. That is what wealthy people do. They focus on making money, not their expenses, the setbacks or anything else. You can do the same exact thing.

Do you need to ask yourself why you are not rich? What has been your focus? In the book “The Millionaire Mind” it was shown that even if they went through several bankruptcies, these self-made millionaires focused on wealth and not the past. They did not live with regret.

So here is the challenge for you. For the next 12 months, just focus on making more money and more wealth, not your expenses or debt. Now should you not care about your expenses at all? Definitely not! You can pay the bills and make the debt service payment, but do not focus on it. Take responsibility for your debt as well but never focus or be stressed by it. Simply manage it.

Just focus on creating money and wealth for the next 12 months.

You may be shocked at the change in your financial life for the better. Just do it!
