10 Ways to Change Your Money Mindset Positively

10 Ways to Change Your Money Mindset Positively

You’ve probably heard limiting money beliefs like, “money is the root of all evil” or “rich people are greedy.” Believe it or not, the way you think and feel about money plays a huge role in the decisions you make and the way you view money.

If you believe that money is evil and rich people are greedy, how could you ever become rich yourself? You couldn’t. But money isn’t the issue here. Neither is that “problem” you’re facing.

When it all boils down to it, the issue is your mind.

Your belief—your mindset—is what gives money, or anything else in life.

Over time, some people develop an unhealthy money belief system, and those unhealthy thoughts could actually be impairing their ability to get rich. Here is what you need to know about how you can become aware of your limiting, non-supportive beliefs related to wealth and money and change them into supportive ones.

Let’s get ready to re-write your money story starting now.

Ask yourself questions to identify what your strengths are and what you're really good at.

What Is a Money Mindset?

Your money mindset is your personal beliefs and attitude towards money. It can affect how you save, spend, and handle money.

A person with a positive money mindset has beliefs like:

  • I don’t have to compare myself to others.
  • I enjoy helping others.
  • I have the freedom to spend, but I don’t have to.
  • It is possible to achieve my financial goals.

Your money mindset doesn’t just focus on your wallet, but it can touch all parts of your life, including your mental health, family, job, friendships, and relationships.

Can I Change My Money Mindset?

Absolutely! It is very possible to change your money mindset. With my free online course, “Don’t Believe a Thought You Think” I’ll show you the power you have to change your thoughts and life.

What Are the Benefits of Having a Positive Money Mindset?

When you have a positive money mindset, you:

  • Look for opportunities instead of seeing roadblocks.
  • Recognize that every financial situation is fixable.
  • See the value of asking for help.
  • Accept that small steps add up to progress.
  • Turn your attention away from what’s wrong and focus on opportunities for success.
  • Determine your actions and results when managing money.

10 Ways to Change Your Money Mindset Positively

How Can I Change My Money Mindset?

1. Forget What You’ve Learned

Chances are that while you grew up, you learned things about money that have stuck with you your entire life. But now that you are in charge of your life, those ideas need a serious update.

To change your money making mindset, you need to be willing to admit fault and be willing to replace the wrong ideas and values you associate with money. If you’re not willing to give up the limiting assumptions you have, you’ll never be able to grow beyond them.

2. Let Go of Your Mistakes

I could talk for days about the mistakes I made when I was young! There are tons of decisions in my past that I wish I could go back, erase, and do-over. Unfortunately, that isn’t how life works. The only thing I can do now is to use what I learned from those experiences to help me make better decisions today.

Mistakes lead to success if you are willing to learn from them. Most of us have learned great lessons from our mistakes. We fell down, and then we picked ourselves up and tried again. Unfortunately, that resilience doesn’t always happen with money.

When it comes to money, a lot of people have a bad habit of letting mistakes completely stop them. Because they made a financial mistake once, they no longer allow themselves to do anything related to it ever again. But that’s the wrong way to think about life, and certainly the wrong way to think about your money.

If you gave up every time you made a mistake, you wouldn’t have graduated from school, learned how to walk or talk, or be the human you are. We make mistakes, but they shouldn’t stop us or define who we are.

3. Eliminate Your Scarcity Mindset

A scarcity mindset is an idea that there is never enough. No matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you won’t have enough. You see things that you would like to have, but then you give up because you assume it’s impossible for you to ever have the means to get those things. This can make you jealous of others, cause anxiety, increase stress, and make your life miserable to live.

Rather than having your thoughts, which lead to your actions, come from a place of scarcity, your thoughts need to come from a place of abundance. The scarcity mindset believes you will always come up short. The abundance mindset believes you have enough and there is enough to go around. Your needs will be met.

Having an abundance mindset about money gives you the power to act freely and bravely with your life.

4. Be Confident

Your money mindset can change how you think about yourself. You have an idea of how much you are worth and how much you deserve. That figure, whatever it might be, directly plays into how confident you are.

Never undersell yourself. Do whatever it takes to remind yourself of that and to live it every day of your life.

You are of value, and you are worth it.

Being confident can affect how you feel about yourself and how your employer sees you, and can open up doors that were previously closed to you. Believe in yourself and know you have something no one else in this world does.

5. Don’t Compare

Your route to success is different than everyone else’s. Do not waste your time comparing yourself to others.

With the constant updates of social media and the internet, it’s easy to get sucked into making comparisons. Not only do we overwhelm ourselves as we try to compare ourselves to celebrities and internet influences, but we might even compare ourselves against friends, family members, neighbors, and coworkers.

We rarely compare ourselves to where we were a year ago to see our actual growth. Instead, we tend to compare ourselves against celebrities, the hyper-wealthy, or people that are well beyond us. This creates unrealistic expectations and leads to disappointment.

Comparisons take away from focusing on your own success and development. Constantly trying to compare your success to those around you is a waste of time and is never worth doing.

new business ideas social distancing

6. Believe in Success

You have the power to make your own success. If you put in the work and the time, your life can be better than where it is now.

The playing field isn’t equal. Some people have a much easier setup for success and it can even feel like some people around you just have success handed to them. But their success does not take away from yours. If you are one of those people that have bigger obstacles than others, that does not mean it is impossible.

Everyone can find success.

The easiest way to only find failure is to never believe there was a chance for success.

7. Fake It ‘Till You Make It

Changing your mindset about money will feel unnatural. It will feel like you are going against years of habits and traditions and changing them all at the same time. When you are having a hard time living your new money mindset, don’t go back to your old bad habits. Fake it ‘till you make it.

Through repetition and time, you will change who you are and improve your relationship with money. But it takes time. It’s like learning how to write with the wrong hand. At first, it will be scribbles. It will be awkward and painful, but your brain is amazing and will learn how to adapt if you keep pushing it. If you keep going and practicing, you will learn how to write with your wrong hand. In that same way, you have to constantly stay invested in changing your money mindset. When you are struggling, keep it up, and keep pushing to become better.

8. Set Goals

Your goals should be a reflection of who you want to become, not who you are now. Setting easy goals can feel great, but you are only limiting yourself. When you create basic goals, you are not reaching your true potential.

Instead of setting goals with your current self in mind, set goals for your future self. You might not be out of debt, be making the money you want, or have the job of your dreams, but your future self is. Goals help you start coming closer to your future self.

By stretching yourself and trying for the biggest dreams you have, you give yourself room to grow and improve. When you limit yourself with small, short-sighted goals, you limit your potential and growth.

9. Project Gratitude

Be thankful for what you have. Even during the tough times, show thanks.

This isn’t always easy. When you’re in a tough spot in your life, and you think there’s nothing more than can go wrong, and it does, you don’t want to be grateful. You want to sit down and complain about how hard things are. However, complaining about getting stuck in the mud will never help you get out of the mud.

Start with small pieces of gratitude. Every day find one thing you are thankful for. The first few days you do this, you might even have to pick the same thing. As you practice gratitude, you will start to see more and more good things in your life that you are grateful for. And rather than being stuck in your conditions, you will rise above them and improve your life. When you begin to focus on the positive, the things that seem negative will start to fade away.

10. Commit to What You Want

Change takes time. Be unwavering in your desire. Be fully committed to your goals and dreams.

It can be tempting to give up if you don’t see results right away or if you ever misstep. Rather than giving up, you have to keep up with what you know will work, and you will see the results over time.

A key part of being committed to what you want is not looking back. You might think that you’re uncomfortable right now, but there is no reason you should ever go back to your old way of thinking. Instead of lingering on what used to be, focus on what could be and where you are headed.

10 Ways to Change Your Money Mindset Positively

How Should I Think About Money?

Have positive beliefs about money. Your money should be focused on experiences, not possessions. Rather than thinking about what you can buy or get with your money, focus instead on what you can do with it. The memories and experiences you can have with money well spent are much more important and life-enriching than owning a bigger house or a fancier car.

Your goal with money should never be to ‘get rich’. You’ll never be able to achieve it. No matter how much you have in your bank account, you will always want more. There will always be more to earn, spend, or save, and you will never feel complete.

Money’s role is not to help you get rich. Money is there to help you live the life you want.

Why Is It Important to Have a Positive Money Mindset?

Most people are limited by their beliefs. Some of these beliefs can be conscious, but most of them are subconscious and foundational beliefs you’ve had since childhood. A positive money mindset fights against those beliefs and changes how you view money.

By changing your relationship with money, you empower yourself to use it to reach your goals, rather than being a slave to your beliefs. When your relationship with money changes, your reality will transform as well.

How to Stop People-Pleasing (And Still Be Nice)

How to Stop People-Pleasing (And Still Be Nice)

People-pleasing might not sound all that bad. After all, what’s wrong with being nice to people and trying to help them out or make them happy?

But people-pleasing generally goes beyond simple kindness. The dictionary defines it as “a person who has an emotional need to please others often at the expense of his or her own needs or desires.”

You might go out of your way to do things for the people in your life, based on what you assume they want or need. You give up your time and energy to get them to like you.

This is how people-pleasing can cause trouble. The urge to have the approval of others can be damaging when we allow other people’s wants to have more importance than our own needs.

Watch my video above on how to kick the habit of people-pleasing or read on for key highlights!

stop being people pleaser sign

Why People-Pleasing May Not be Your Fault After All 

From an early age, we learned that to survive, we needed to have the approval of others. It was necessary. You understand that, right? So, from infancy until our late teens, we thrive on that approval. Because if you don’t, you’re pretty well dead.

The problem is that most of us carry that need for approval – that “survival mechanism” – into adulthood. It just takes a different form.

So there’s nothing wrong with looking for approval. In some cases, it’s helpful.

But when that need for approval runs your life as an adult, it can hurt you. 

I’ve compiled a list of a few habits you might have if you’re a people-pleaser.

If any of these habits sound like you, I invite you to keep reading to learn how to train your mind to work FOR you instead of against you.

3 Signs That You’re A People Pleaser

Still not sure if you’re a people-pleaser or just extremely kind to others? Here’s a look at some telltale signs of people-pleasing.

1. You say “yes” when you should say “no”


You might worry that telling someone “no” or turning down a request for help will make them think you don’t care about them.

Agreeing to do what they want might seem like a safer option, even if you don’t actually have the time or desire to help.

Many people agree to do something when they’d rather not, like helping someone move or lending money that isn’t in their budget to share.

But a pattern of this behavior can cause problems, since it tells other people that their needs come before yours.

It also shows that you might care too much about what people think about you or you compare yourself to others— a huge roadblock when it comes to focusing on your priorities and overall self-image.

Some people may abuse this, ignoring your boundaries because they know you’ll do what they want anyway.

2. You feel inauthentic 


People-pleasers often have a harder time recognizing how they really feel because they are so focused on being who other people want or need them to be.

Continuing to push your own needs to the side makes it harder to acknowledge them. Eventually, you might not even feel sure about what you want or how to be true to yourself.

You also may not be able to voice the feelings you are aware of, even when you want to speak up for yourself

For example, you might avoid telling your partner they made you feel bad, thinking something like, “They didn’t mean it, so if I say something, I’ll only hurt their feelings.”

But this denies the key fact of the situation: They hurt your feelings.

3. You feel resentful & bitter instead of happy and vibrant


One huge impact of people-pleasing is increased stress.

This can easily happen when you take on more than you can handle with the goal of supporting someone else.

You don’t just lose out on time for yourself. You also find yourself with less time for things you really need to do.

To get the bare essentials taken care of, you might end up working longer hours or going without sleep, eventually facing physical consequences of bitterness, worry, and stress.

How to Stop People-Pleasing (And Still Be Nice)

3 Steps To Overcome Being A People Pleaser

If you want to break the pattern of people-pleasing, recognizing how these habits show up in your life is a good first step. But knowing you have a problem isn’t always going to resolve it.

Follow these steps to make sure you remove any limiting beliefs around the need to please others:

1. Awareness


Recognizing your tendency to people-please is really the first and most important step to learning how to stop.

Try this exercise:

Sit down at the end of each day and look back at what you accomplished.

Think to yourself… Were the things you did that day what you wanted or needed to accomplish, or did your “to-do” list end up being filled up by other people’s requests?

The more you begin to identify your own needs and priorities, the easier it will be to begin to focus on what you want to accomplish, instead of being frustrated and overwhelmed by someone else’s agenda.

2. Understanding


Every moment you spend sacrificing your dreams and goals in order to please people is a moment you don’t have to spend on living the life you want! It’s time to stop worrying about what other people think!

When you understand that what other people think about you usually isn’t an accurate picture of who you are, you can really be free.

In fact, their opinion often isn’t even about you. It’s sometimes a reflection of how they feel about themselves.

So, stop worrying about what other people think — get over what I call “the attention addiction” — and start living the life you want!

3. Reconditioning


A favorite quote of mine, and one that I share with students often, says this: “True integrity is being able to decline a dinner invitation without giving a reason,” and it’s real. It’s the marker of true power.

Simply answering, “No, but thank you for the invitation,” is how you know you’ve grown and reconditioned your mind to not live your life based on what other people think.

But this doesn’t just happen – it’s a practice. It’s something you have to do every single day. It’s the marker of true power.

Recognize what you want to do, what you can do, and forget the rest.

What Would Life Be Like If You Could Stop Worrying About What Others Think?

Imagine for a moment what life would be like if you didn’t care about other people’s opinions…

Would you be self-centered and egotistical, or would you be set free to fulfill your true purpose without being held back by the fear of rejection?

If you want to move forward in your life, you have to stop worrying about what other people think! While seeking approval in some areas of our lives can be healthy and even necessary, it becomes toxic when it starts to control your life. Learn how to break free of worrying about what other people think.

5 Powerful Ways to Develop A Growth Mindset

5 Powerful Ways to Develop A Growth Mindset

In the video above, I share 5 simple tips for developing a growth mindset. If you’re ready to get beyond your negative mindset (your #1 enemy from success) and live the life you really want, keep reading.

Your mind holds the power to help you succeed in any area of life…

But without a mindset focused on growth, that power can stay locked away.

Developing a growth mindset has become a popular topic in recent years because people have realized its huge impact on success potential.

But getting started can be confusing. True or true?

There’s been a flood of information from scientists, spiritual leaders, business icons, and celebrities who all have their own take on the subject.

That said, it’s hard to know where to start, and who to listen to, right?

The goal is to make it easier for you to start developing a growth mindset, so you can begin to reap the amazing benefits of wealth, health, and happiness. 

But before we get into the specific tips and strategies for having a growth mindset, let’s first dive into what a growth mindset really is…

how to develop a growth mindset instead of fixed mindset

What Is A Growth Mindset?

A growth mindset is simply this:

The belief that our basic abilities can be developed and improved through dedication and hard work. 

It’s not so much that this belief is some kind of magic — it’s just that without a growth mindset, we don’t give the effort we need to move forward, which keeps us perpetually “stuck.”

With a growth mindset, however, we can break through the “stuck-ness” and achieve the results we desire, whether that be at work, in our relationships, or in other areas of our lives.

On one level, it’s about wanting to create a better life and focusing on personal development so you can achieve it. That includes examining and changing your beliefs and thoughts.

In order to really reap the benefits of a growth mindset, there’s one fundamental belief that you must have, or adopt, to make growth possible, and that is the belief that you are capable of growing!

believe in yourself growth mindset


Harness The Belief That You Are Capable Of Growing

If you believe something is possible, you tend to find (or even create) proof that it is. And the opposite is also true.

Since your mind has such a big impact on the outcome of your life experience, you’re creating self-fulfilling prophecies every day.

Bottomline: Your results come down to what you believe in.

If you believe you can change, learn, and grow, you’ll likely find out that you’re right, and this opens up limitless possibilities for you.

And if you believe you’re stuck with whatever talents or traits you were born with, then you believe in a limited reality instead.

Why? 

Because your beliefs shape your outcome

So, if you want to be able to change and grow, the first belief you need to cultivate is that you can grow!

This is exactly what a growth mindset is all about— believing you have the ability to develop the skills and traits you need to achieve your goals.

5 Powerful Ways to Develop A Growth Mindset

5 Powerful Ways to Develop A Growth Mindset


1. Start with confidence

Growth starts in our mind, and without a strong sense of self-worth, it’s impossible to grow!

To develop a growth mindset, you have to recognize your worth and believe in your limitless potential. Let it build your self-esteem and self-confidence.


2. Be present

If you are focused on what happened to you in the past or looking forward to the future, then you are missing out on what is happening right now.

If you aren’t living in the NOW, then you are not only missing your own life, but you’ll never be truly happy. Living in the present can help you feel more in control, less stressed, and happier.


3. Provide value while doing something BIG

We all have a big vision – something exceptional, something we were created to do. But any big vision or success starts with a small first step.

When you pursue what you’re passionate about one step at a time, growth will follow.


4. Understand that nothing has meaning except for the meaning you give it

In short, you create your own reality. It’s as simple as that. If what you want is going to serve others as well as yourself, life expands that desire even more so, and will move to serve you.

Shift the fear of what you don’t want to happen, and turn that focus to what you do want to happen.


5. Believe that everything happens for a reason, and that reason is there to serve you

People who understand utilization don’t have a magic wand. They aren’t immune to bad things happening. In fact, they deal with the same upsets and setbacks as everybody else.

But what they have learned is that they have power. In the midst of everything that happens lies an opportunity. And the power lies in how we see and seize that opportunity.

Why Saying “No” Can Be The Best Thing You Can Do For Yourself

Why Saying “No” Can Be The Best Thing You Can Do For Yourself

How do you start and decide when to stop taking things on? When do you say, “enough is enough,” and you’ve reached your max? 

In the video above, I share several tips to help you avoid that feeling of burnout and learn how to confidently say, “no.” 

If you’re ready to learn more, read on.

“Saying ‘yes’ to one thing means saying ‘no’ to something else.”

The above statement is a quote I hear so often, and it couldn’t be more true.

When you say ‘yes’ to everything, what’s the chance of you doing a good job on everything? Very unlikely.

Agreeing to take too much on your plate could potentially lead to serious burnout.

It’s a time struggle — you only have so much of it. It’s impossible to do everything – and even more impossible to do everything well. 

When you say yes to something, keep in mind that it means closing the door to something else – which is absolutely okay. 

Life is full of choices, and the choices you make lead you down your life path (which is different for everyone)! These choices make you – you.

Why Saying

When You Say “Yes,” You’re Trading In Your Time & Effort 

Can you handle more on your plate? Will you have to give up something else that you enjoy?

What opportunity does this offer to you and your life? What are the pros and the cons?

And the most critical question to ask yourself; do you want to do what you’re being asked to do? Is it going to take away from more important things in your life — bigger priorities? 

It’s about stress management and self-care. You want to truly be able to enjoy your life.

But if your life is filled with things you said ‘yes’ to – but don’t really want to do (or don’t really fulfill you), you aren’t really living a Level 10 Life.

Below are a few tell-tale signs of overwhelm and an incessant desire to always say “Yes”…

1. You never have enough time for the things that make you happy.


We all go through busy seasons. You may have a couple weeks where you just don’t have a chance to sit down. That’s life. 

But if those busy seasons happen more often than not, you might be headed straight for a brick wall called “burnout.”

If this sounds like your life, you need to focus on setting boundaries. Saying ‘no’ won’t make you a jerk. In fact, it makes you responsible and more reliable! And you need to take responsibility for your own life and your goals.

Narrowing down that “to-do” list and removing things that don’t serve you or make you happy is the first step to living life on your terms. 

Once you identify the things that are most important to you and eliminate the things that aren’t, you free yourself up to achieve the success you’ve been searching for. 

 2. You’re worried about the future instead of being focused on the present. 


Let’s get to the root of what overwhelm is.

Overwhelm is the experience of fear, and fear is the feeling that there is not enough. Not enough time, enough resources, enough money, or a fear that if you don’t try to do it all, you may miss that big break. 

That fear is why overwhelm always feels bad. You may feel pressure, stress, or anxiety, but at the end of the day, it all boils down to fear.

So, how do you overcome that fear or limiting belief?

You could cut down on the to-do list. But in my experience, fear has so little to do with the things we’re doing, and so much more to do with our way of thinking

Unsure of what fears or limiting thoughts may be holding you back and sabotaging you from getting the success and results you’re looking for?
Check out this FREE worksheet!
How to Stop People-Pleasing (And Still Be Nice)

In order to manage your fear, you have to learn to manage your mind. 

That means every time you have a fear that’s causing you stress or holding you back, I want you to tell yourself, “That’s not helpful. I’m going to believe or think of something else.”

Then, take a moment to reframe it. For example, take the fear I mentioned earlier: “If I don’t take on this task at work, my boss won’t think I’m qualified.”

Stop and think: Where did that come from? Did it come from other people? Is it based on what other people think? Is it true? 

Bottomline:

Fear is merely the anticipation of pain. That said, you have the choice to let it go and believe something else.

Why would you want to cut yourself off from being successful now just because you’re worried about something that might happen in the future?

I always say, “Why don’t we just cross that bridge when we get there? How about you become super successful now, and worry about any problems as they come up?”

Once you stop worrying about what’s going to happen in the future and start living in the moment, you’ll be amazed at how much progress you make in a short time.

While your fear may not go away, reassurance can help train your mind for handling this emotion in a more productive way.

The next time fear stops you in your tracks, you’ll be better prepared to realize that you can manage whatever comes your way. You’ll know that the worst-case scenario created by that fear simply isn’t going to happen.


In order to manage your fear, learn to manage your mind. Every time you have a fear that causes you stress or is holding you back, tell yourself, ‘That’s not helpful. I’m going to believe or think of something else.’

You have to recognize what you’re afraid of, confront it, and then change your thoughts and emotional reactions. Well, you’re certainly aware now, and you have a better understanding of fear. What’s left is rewiring. And  in order to rewire yourself around fear, and truly start living the life you want, you need to do two things:

1. You need to change the way you react to your thoughts.

2. You need to get in touch with what your ultimate life actually looks like.

You can’t really go anywhere if you don’t know where you’re headed, can you? You don’t just wander around hoping to get somewhere! You need a goal destination. Once you know where you’re going, then you can plan it out and take action!

Once you stop worrying about what’s going to happen in the future and start living in the moment, you’ll be amazed at how much progress you make in a short time.

3 Simple Steps to Master Money Management

3 Simple Steps to Master Money Management

financial freedom money management (1)

Let’s face it — one of the hardest things about money is learning how to manage it well.

In the video above, I’ll share the exact strategies I, and thousands of my students used to master money and become financially free. If you want to learn more, read on.

Your Financial Success Is Largely Based On How You Manage Your Money

The single most important difference between financial success and financial failure is how you manage money.

Mastering money management is what allows you to create financial freedom — and with that freedom comes the ability to do what you want with your time, instead of being driven by the need to work just to stay afloat. 

Most of us dream of achieving financial freedom — that moment when we don’t have to worry about how we’re going to pay the bills or make rent, when all our basic needs are provided for. 

But financial freedom can only happen when there’s enough money left to set aside for whatever we desire, whether that’s paying off debt, recreation, or a long vacation. And at the end of the day, that’s what we’re all aiming for.

Everybody I’ve ever talked to wants to be financially free. I’ve never met anybody that doesn’t want that. But financial freedom isn’t possible unless you master managing your money well using key strategies to help you get to financial freedom and build long-term wealth. 

In order to really manage our money well, read on to discover a few key principles to keep in mind…

1. If You Can Manage A Little Bit Of Money, You Can Manage A Lot 

No matter where I am in the world, if I’m talking about money, I always get the same question: “Harv, I don’t have a lot of money, in fact, I don’t have any extra, so how do I manage it?” 

To answer that question, I share a very simple analogy:

Imagine that you had a certain amount of money and you went to the grocery store once a week. Let’s say you spend $200 at the grocery store to buy your food for the week. When you get home at noon, you decide to have lunch. Are you gonna eat all of the food? Of course you’re not going to eat all the food in one sitting — you bought it for the whole week! Instead, you’re going to manage it so that it lasts you the entire week. Yes or yes? 

The same principle applies when it comes to your money:

You’ve got to manage your money and manage it properly so that it lasts. 

Here’s the thing, no matter how much income you do have coming in, you’ve got to manage it. And here’s why: 

We are creatures of habit. 

So if you are not in the habit of managing your money, when you start having MORE money coming in, guess what’s going to happen? You’re still not going to manage your money. And it’s all going to disappear, and you’ll be left wondering why you just can’t seem to do well financially — let alone get rich!

So even if you have $1 in income, you need to learn how to manage that $1. And if you can do that, you will strengthen the habit of money management. 

At my Millionaire Mind Intensive course, and in part of my book, “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, I teach a very effective money management method— designed specifically to get you to financial freedom. 

It’s called the JARS money management system.

Basically, using this system, you split your money up into six different accounts, and you have percentages of your income to put into each account. You can use bank accounts or actual jars and divide any income you receive into the jars (or accounts) using these percentages as a guide. 

Here’s a FREE worksheet that will help you calculate how much of your income to put into the 6 jars.

Bottomline: 

As you work toward financial freedom, you have to master the habit of money management. 

Money management is the key building block of financial success, whether you’re just starting out or you’re a millionaire, because the habit is way more important than the amount.

Let me say that again…

The habit of managing your money is way more important than the amount

So, before you try to do anything else, it’s time to take control of your money. When you master your money, you’ll be putting yourself on the fast track to wealth and success.

2. Earn More Money By Solving More Problems

Once you’ve mastered the habit of managing your money, your goal should be to maximize what you can earn. 

When I was younger, I wanted to earn as much money as fast as I could. I tried every business venture I could get my hands on. And no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t make any business work.

And the primary reason for that was that I was focused only on myself making money and not focused on helping others!

In fact, I believe most business success comes down to one factor, and one factor only: whether your business focuses on solving problems for other people.

It doesn’t matter whether it’s a big problem or a small problem. And you don’t have to be smart, unique, good-looking, or have some special or unusual skill to be massively successful.

All you need is a product or service that solves problems for others.

Think about it like this…

If you solve a problem for one person, you earn one money

If you solve a problem for some people, you earn some money.

If you solve a problem for lots of people, you earn lots of money.

What do you spend your hard earned money on every month? I’m sure you’ll see lots of products and services for solving your problems and making your life easier. True or true?

When you focus on solving problems for as many people as you can, money is the natural result.

3. Make Your Money Work For You 

I often come across students with a chunk of savings or high income who want to know how to really maximize their money. For them, and for you today, I have some advice. 

Many people believe that you should either get rich quickly OR work until you retire to become financially free. 

But being rich doesn’t necessarily mean you’re financially free, a misconception believed by 95% of people. And you don’t have to work tireless hours and wait to retire to enjoy financial freedom!

If you’re not experiencing financial freedom right now, it’s not because you’ve done anything wrong. Like most people, you probably just haven’t mastered the art investing or creating passive income — money you earn, whether you’re actively working or not. 

The goal is to make your money work for you — instead of YOU working for your money — by creating systems of investments or passive income that will result in ongoing cash flow. 

Opportunities to create passive income include investments like bank and government bonds, corporate bonds, t-bills, or rental property income. You can also focus on creating a business that generates passive income.

Be sure to build a business that has the potential to be systemized so that it can work without you. That way, money will continue to flow in, whether you’re putting in the hours or not.

Here’s a very informative infographic that outlines 8 examples of creating passive income:
