Who doesn’t want to be a billionaire? I mean is that even a question to ask. But the problem is that becoming a billionaire is not an easy task. Author of the book How Rich People Think Steve Siebold says “getting rich begins with the way you think and what you believe about making money.”
Here are seven mental tricks, outlined by Siebold, that rich people use to make money.
1. They believe that they have enough money even when they don’t
Rich people are not afraid to borrow money from anyone. If they have a great idea which they’re unable to finance, they execute their plan by using other people’s money to make it happen.
2. They set high expectations
The rich set their expectations exceptionally high. No one would ever strike it rich and live their dreams without huge expectations. Ancient wisdom says you get what you expect.
3. Making money is a game for them
Making money is like a game for rich people. This is the reason why people who are already millionaires go to work every day with the aim to jump to the next level.
The interest and enthusiasm for playing the game urges them to constantly raise their level of expectations. The more excited they get, the harder they work and the more they succeed.
4. They personify money and see it as their friend
Rich people consider money as one of their greatest friends. A friend who can end sleepless nights of worry, physical pain, and mental stress. Wealthy people believe money can solve problems and purchase peace of mind.
5. They are not afraid of fear
Rich people block out fear. They think at a level where everything is possible. Every task that seems difficult or impossible to the masses looks practical to the rich people.
They already keep in mind that becoming a billionaire is not an easy task and they have to be out of their comfort zone for like forever.
6. They think that getting rich is natural
Rich people think that becoming a billionaire is natural. Instead of thinking why me, they say why not me? This behaviour of being optimistic about themselves guarantees their success.
7. They tell themselves that they deserve to be rich
They not only think that getting rich is natural but they think that it is their right. World-class thinkers know in a capitalist country they have the right to be rich while the masses think getting rich is only for a lucky few. This distinction in thinking leads the middle class to the lottery and the world-class to work.
