7 ways to develop a Millionaire mindset:
1. There is no shame in asking for help when you need it.
Go ahead and try in time learning. What this means is, get a skill when you need it. You do not need to wait to know everything and mentoring someone with what you do know benefits others but also helps your confidence. Confidence leads to action, which leads to more results, which then leads to growth.
2. Believe in yourself, so what if other people have the same idea!
There are 30.7 million small businesses in the US, which account for 99.9% of all US businesses – SBA, 2019. Think about it with that many businesses, you don't think they all cross the same industry. No matter how big or small, these businesses found a way to craft and carve their space within their expertise. Many businesses have a categorization through different sections of the business. Meaning they are across real estate, tech, retail, and e-commerce, to name a few.
The object of business is not for you to recreate the wheel. It is for you to find a problem to solve and help people solve it. Make it your mission to find a subject or niche-specific topic that you can master. You may fear that because others are in your Niche, you can't make a lot of money. But that's not true. That's why you gotta develop the Millionaire mindset!
Research in the field of business that you want to go into, and you can find people who need your help. Well, creative entrepreneur, other people may have the same ideas as you. There's something that nobody in this world can do that you can do. What that is, is to be you. To master, speak to your values, share your story, and recognize that your Journey is unique to you.
Your Focus will be on speaking your values so that you will be able to have a tribe and community. Thus, you do not need to worry about the ideas of what other people have. Focus on your tribe and ask yourself. How you can better serve and help them reach the transformation or results that they are looking for.
3. Fear of failure/success – Two fears, one mindset
The fear of failure or success may be one of the biggest fears that you have to face to start your Journey. I was thinking of saving these two for last. Yet, they're so important! Plus, you have come this far. So I know you are ready to face the person in the mirror to overcome these blocks.
The thing that these will prevent in your business is consistent growth. Fear of failure/success is like a big boulder that fell in the middle of the highway. On a one-way road, that runs across a mountain top with no barrier. You don't want to be stuck like that in your business. Get out the jackhammer that you keep in your car, and let's start working away at it.
Both of these fears are a result of our mindset thinking of the consequences that will happen if we achieve it. For the fear of failure. Ask yourself, what is the worst that can happen? More likely than not, that thing that you're so worried about isn't as bad. Also, it may not happen at all. Instead, ask yourself, what if I tried?
The fear of success is something that not a lot of people are aware of. Fear of success may have different origins in your life. For example, when you were younger, you may have been picked on for when you achieve something in school. So now, in your adult life, you may avoid success to not attract that same attention.
Now I brought you two fears in this section. We're going to walk away with the Millionaire mindset. The one mindset for these that you will master is to take small steps facing them. Each successful step leads to a clear path to your destination.
What this means is to be aware when your brain starts telling you thoughts like:
“Hey, we're leaning into something different. We haven't been here before.”
“Remember what happens when we start changing, bad things start to happen.”
What your brain is trying to do is protect you from change. Our brain likes to know the answer to things. It likes to know I'm going to do this and this is going to be the result. When you're on this path of entrepreneurship. They're going to be a lot of times where you take action, then you have hope for a certain result. Trust the process. Everything will work out!
So, in the end, take small steps towards your fears in both these categories. For example, if you are afraid to start posting about your business on your social media. Start posting on subreddits or forums. This will help you get comfortable putting your content out there. Once you see that it isn't so bad. You'll be able to challenge yourself. Keep taking small steps to overcome this fear. Thus you will be a master over fear and success, creative entrepreneur.
4. Work towards Building Confidence
By working towards overcoming the two fears beforehand. You began to shift this mindset block. As a by-product, you will take action, you will develop confidence.
See why I didn't save failure/success for last?
The rest of this Journey got a little bit smoother for you. We have to keep pushing.
Without confidence, you will not be persistent. Many situations will present themselves that you have to overcome. Confidence can be an easy task for you to overcome. The tip for developing a millionaire mindset is to take action. That is the Secret to success!
Taking action leads to confidence, more confidence leads to consistent action, which leads to consistent results.
There is a quote for this and I am not sure of the author, but the quote is
“It doesn't get easier you just get better.”
5. Meditate at least Once a Day
Now I'm very excited to share with you these last few tips. Imagine with these next mindset skills how you can bring desired outcomes.
If you are an avid reader of entrepreneur books, newsletters, or other online content, then you'll find that a lot of them speak about this specific art to have in your Millionaire Mindset tool belt.
What that is, is meditation. Many successful habits are built around daily meditation.
There is one thing that meditation can do for your entrepreneurship journey. That is keeping your mind open. You want to keep your mind open so that you can always find solutions, ideas, or continued growth. It doesn't have to be an hour-long process. Sit with yourself for 5 or 10 minutes to go over some things in your mind. Then in your business that might be preventing you from the growth that you seek. In this deep search, you may find things that you were not aware of. Bringing awareness is essential for your success.
By meditating at least once a day you will increase your imagination. A heightened imagination is like fuel for the creative entrepreneur. You will gain more than you lose with a fresh fuel tank.
6. Create a Vision
Now that you are increasing your gas mileage by consistently filling your fuel tank. You can begin focusing on the vision.
Not having a vision for your business can hurt your clarity. You won't know where to focus daily, and things will seem out of control. Having a clear path to your goals is how you will stay consistent with reaching them. It is extremely important to be Goal oriented. This path of clarity shows you that you can turn your dreams into reality.
As you work on your daily meditation. Start implementing the vision that you want for your business. Envision what your team looks like.
- Do you want a team?
- What day-to-day operations look like?
- How do clients hear about your business?
- How can you automate that process?
For each weekday, what are the most important tasks that you envision for yourself. Envision how much money you want to make a month in your business. Understand why you want to make that much money, and then Envision how you're going to make it happen. Mastering this creates an entrepreneur who knows how they will exactly turn their dreams into reality.
