Many people will teach you ways to make money but what makes a self-made millionaire different to the rest of us and how can we develop a millionaire mindset?
Be organised – This is an important characteristic of a millionaire mindset because they are always on top of things – meals, going to the gym, they wake up on time, eat on time and make meetings on time. They are prepared for everything because they are organised. Think about it like you would do for an exam – study ahead, prepare, get plenty of sleep and turn up on time, this is a habit they stick to throughout life.
Learn to love learning – Read books, watch tutorials and educational videos. You don’t have to learn about every single topic out there but try to gain knowledge on the area you want to progress in and anything else that will benefit you. Especially, learn to be good with numbers. When you start learning more and more it will become a habit and you will find passion in it.
Hard work – What would the world be like if nobody worked hard, the physicists, biologists, mathematicians and more, that changed our world. Read about the 10 greatest scientists who changed the world here. Work twice as hard as everyone else, double the hours you work, some people work 60 to 80 hours a week. Arianna Huffington worked 18 hour days building the Huffington Post which is incredible but this was a poor decision and life-threatening. Always think about your health first before you commit to working longer hours, hard work comes down to nothing without your health.
Be positive and stay focused – There is nothing that you are incapable of and with the right tools you can do anything. Have a positive attitude and do not let negativity from others throw you off your tracks. Surround yourself with the right people, people who support you. Accept criticism and work beyond it. Be aware of where you are and where you are heading.
Save money – Millionaires tend to save money as much as they can. Buy very little and save your money. Limit the amount of money you spend on food, go out less and keep your bills low. This will help you save a lot of money at the end of each month.
