6 Mental Mistakes That Kept Me Just Over Broke

6 Mental Mistakes That Kept Me Just Over Broke

Do you or someone you know wish you had more money?

Maybe a nice financial cushion for peace of mind, or just some extra spending money each
month?
As someone who lived paycheck to paycheck for many years, I know that lifestyle can be
stressful.
Maybe the information I’m about to share with you will change things for you or someone
you know who’s struggling.

I made these mental mistakes and I paid heavily, I lived most of my 34 years of life broke with nothing to show off, moving from one job to another.

The right mindset can change everything. Today I am going to share with your 6 mental mistakes that kept me broke for 34 years.

Now don’t get me wrong. I understand that it’s more difficult for some people to rise up the
financial ladder than others.

There are lots of factors that hold people in poverty, including illness, poor education, lack
of opportunity, etc.

But understanding these common 5 mental mistakes of less financially secure individuals, and simply experimenting with changing them can make a huge difference in almost anyone’s ability to earn.

I know, because I was directly affected by ALL of the things you’re about to read. I changed my mindset and went on to earn a comfortable living with my own online business.

Today I challenge you to ask yourself if any of these traits apply to you or someone you want to help. And if so, what are you or they willing to do to change them…

1. Limited Self-belief
People who become independently wealthy do not wallow in limited self-belief. Instead, they truly believe that there is nothing that can stop them from achieving their goal of financial freedom.

Most of these people exhibit a high level of self-confidence that is often contagious, meaning everyone they work with “gets the bug”.

These optimists maintain a positive outlook at almost all times. Their confidence is not easily shaken by external factors and day to day setbacks and challenges. Their positive beliefs and energy virtually “will” any task to completion.

2. Staying Locked In Their Social Comfort Zone
You know that old saying… Birds of a feather flock together? Well, it is true in financial circles as well. Many low-income earners only network with other people who are of the same or similar income as them.

It’s their comfort zone. They rarely if ever actively seek out other people who are significantly wealthier than them.

They even sometimes do the opposite, they avoid them and even shun them. Most people who become high-income earners do the opposite.

They come out of their comfort zone, and consistently befriend and learn from others who are doing better than them financially. In the process, many are surprised to discover just how willing the
people they considered “snobs” are to help them.

3. Avoidance of Hard Work

People who become top earners are usually willing to do whatever is necessary to reach their goals, including things that seem like a lot of work. The fact is, even huge tasks can be separated into small steps that can be completed one at a time.

People with true potential to become big earners recognize this and immediately start breaking down big ideas into achievable steps. This “no-fear” trait can result in positive advances at virtually every level, from minimum wage workers to self-employed individuals.

The simple fact is, if you want to make great strides in life, you need to be willing to roll up your sleeves and work long, hard hours. The time will come later when you can reap the rewards for all your hard work.

4. Talking About Plans Instead of Taking Action

How many people do you know who are constantly saying “I’m going to do this, and I’m
going to do that”. How many of those things they actually DO.

Financially independent people are DO’ers. Instead of saying what they’re going to do, they jump in and start doing it. When their tasks are completed on a regular basis, they accomplish great things over time.

Most people who become wealthy through their own ambition recognize that time is their most important asset and a very scarce resource. They do not waste their precious time talking about what they are going to do.

They take action and DO IT step by step — while the “sayers” are sitting in front of a TV watching soap operas or endless hours of reality shows. Don’t waste your time watching others. Be your own reality show.

5. Unorganization and Procrastination

While there are some people who’ve become wealthy despite a lack of organization they are in the minority. The fact is most people who go on to earn the big bucks, whether with their own company or as an employee, know how to get things done.

They break big projects down into specific tasks. They keep lists and set deadlines for each task to be completed. They don’t constantly put things off.

When they have a job to do they roll up their sleeves and jump right in without delay. Even if they’re simply delegating the job to someone else, they give immediate, concise directions and follow up with progress regularly.

6. Not Using “Leverage”

People who get things done know how to use the power of leverage to achieve maximum results with minimum efforts.

They understand how to leverage money as well as people. Big achievements are not accomplished by one person, even though one person sometimes reaps the bulk of the credit or financial gain.

Think about it. Did Steve Jobs write all the code that makes an Apple computer run? Did he put Ipads together himself? Of course not! Heck, even the President of the United States has people who write his speeches.

Every successful person finds ways to leverage their time and money. (In online business, you can get low-cost leverage at places like fiverr.com and plr sites.)

Final words

You can change your life and income if you decide to change your habits and avoid those 6 mental mistakes listed above, it is never too late, you can start today and have a completely different life in 6 months from now.
