Wealth File 9 - Millionaires Mindset

Last Update: October 24, 2017


Let’s have a look at Wealth File Number 9

Here is a short introduction for those who’ve just joined my series:

I’m reading the book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker. He has found out 17 ways of thinking and of taking action, which are essential if we want to get really successful and wealthy. He calls these ways of thinking “Wealth Files”. Throughout my journey to a Millionaires Mindset I’m sharing these Wealth Files with you.


Wealth File #9:

“Rich people are bigger than their problems.”

“Poor people are smaller than their problems.



Wealth Principle:

"The secret to success is not to try to avoid or get rid of or shrink from your problems; the secret is to grow yourself so that you are bigger than any problem."


Poor people will do almost anything to avoid problems.
If they see a challenge they run away.

But whether you are rich or poor, problems do not go away. As long as you are breathing, you will always have problems (challenges) and obstacles in your life.

  • The bigger the problems you can handle, the bigger the business you can handle.
  • The bigger the responsibility you can handle, the more employees you can handle.
  • The more customers you can handle, the more money you can handle and ultimately the more wealth you can handle.

Rich and successful people are solution-oriented; they spend their time and energy strategizing and planning the answers to challenges that come up, and creating systems to make certain that problem doesn’t occur again.

Poor and unsuccessful people are problem-oriented. Theys pend their time and energy complaining and seldom come up with anything to alleviate the problem.

Rich people do not complain about problems, do not avoid problems, and do not complain about problems.

Become a master at handling problems and overcoming obstacles, then nothing can stop you from getting successful!


Millionaire Mind Actions:

  1. Whenever you are feeling upset over a“big” problem, then take a deep breath and say to yourself, “I can handle this. I am bigger than any problem.”

  2. Write down a problem you are having in your life. Then list specific actions you can take to resolve or at least improve this situation. This will move you from problem thinking into solution thinking. Visualize how good it will feel, when the problem finally has been resolved .Then take action!


Speak out following Declaration loud and clear to yourself, to underline your intention:

“I am bigger than any problems.”

“I can handle any problems.”


My own experiences:

Whenever I am feeling upset over something I do take a deep breath and tell myself, that the problem won’t disappear just because I’m getting upset and angry. I’ve always been rather a calm person, but inside me I fight against the upset feelings.

I have lately discovered the healing effect of meditation. It helps to relax and it is also very healthy for our brain and body. There are many great meditation videos on youtube. Many, many successful people do meditate every day, for example Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks and Tim Ferris. It makes us resilient, which helps us to overcome obstacles and find solutions for any problem.


Remember:

YOU CREATE YOUR SUCCESS, ONLY YOU, SO BE AWARE of your THOUGHTS and TAKE ACTION.

This is great stuff Pernilla. I am going to find the time to go back and look at the previous blogs you have written on this subject. This is excellent information and wonderful techniques for all of us to use as we develop our businesses here at WA.

Thanks so much for your efforts here. I am looking forward to reading more very soon.

Thank you so much Frank!
I'm honored to get your compliment. Means a lot to me.

I want to thank You for your great efforts at WA. I have read your latest blog, that you want to step back a bit from WA blogging and concentrate on building your online business.

I wish you all the best and look forward to see you now and then.

Hello Frank!

What a nice surprise! I´m happy to read your comment, thank you so much!

Yes, I really want to continue the Wealth File series. I have been busy with my online business and also renovating our house that´s why I didn´t find the time to write WA posts.

Please, keep your eyes open for the following Wealth File post. I´m planning to post the 10th Wealth File in February. I´d love to hear your opinion then.

No problem, I will keep looking until I see it. If you are here just looking for some fun reading sometime, check out the series I am doing. Analogy Alphabet - following the alphabet and writing analogies relating back to WA. Hope you can have time to read one once in a while.

Also, as I have time I will go back and read the rest of your Wealth File series.

Hi Pernilla,
A study of companies that made successful transitions in reaction to changes in the marketplace found that it's vital for leaders to come face to face with the "brutal facts". I think this speaks to your theme today.
The Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, better known as The A&P, and Kroger Grocery chain illustrates the point.

The old-model grocery store (which accounted for nearly 100 percent of Kroger's business) was going to become extinct. Unlike A&P, however, Kroger confronted this brutal truth and acted on it.
By the early 1990s, Kroger was well on its way to becoming the number one grocery chain in America, a position it would attain in 1999. Meanwhile, A&P still had over its stores in the 1950s size and had dwindled to a sad remnant of a once great American institution.

So in short,successful people face problems and find a way to turn them into opportunities.

As for meditation, I have become a big believer as I see the many ways it can help not only focus the mind but also heal the body. In fact, meditation is becoming more and more part of a non-surgical approach to managing pain.

Hi Thabo,

You have described a very interesting case. This shows that we have to be open for changes and react upon them if we want to be and stay successful.

It sounds wonderful that meditation helps to heal the body. I want to study this more in detail. It must be a good approach for you too with your business helping people with back pains.

Haven't written any more Wealth File blogs yet, I'm so busy with my Health Website and my Christmas Website lately. I'm going to continue this series, for sure, but it have to wait a bit.

Have a good time, my friend!
Let's keep in touch!

This is great, Pernilla. I have learned that problems also give opportunities. For example wrinkle threat for senior women can be an opportunity to learn and offer the solutions. I remember a sentence I have ever read in a blog: "more wrinkles more money".
Reply
Pernilla Premium
Oh yes Melani you are so right!
Opportunities are everywhere, we just have to see them!

That's a funny sentence, but it's not so funny getting wrinkles. So lets find a solution.

Thank you Melani, you often helps me to open up my eyes for new tools and new knowledge!

Years ago, I stopped calling them "problems"...Instead, they are "Projects"! It's a switch in the mindset and attitude.
Everyday, I have "projects" that make my life worthwhile.

I really enjoyed the post, Pernilla. I meditate and recommend it to everyone. The benefits are amazing. I know should change my mindset and am working on that.

Sharon, how glad I am to hear you like this post.

Yes, meditation is very relaxing, helps to fortify my confidence and keep focused on my goal. I'm very happy to have found out about meditation.

Changing the mindset requires a great deal of effort. It's important to practise self-develoement each and every day, even if it's only 10 minutes meditation or half an hour reading a self-development book, or to look at a YouTube video by for example T. Harv Eker or Tony Robbins.

Our mission is to fulfill our vision!
Have a great time Sharon!

Good afternoon Pernilla,

Having overcome, feeling wise, my difficult years even if the problems are still there, my attitude towards them has changed.
I feel much better and that is why I have started this new adventure making websites.

Dear Taetske, so good to see you!

That's great to hear that you have been able to change the attitude towards your difficult experiencees in the past. It needs a lot of work and strength to change the mindset. You have made a great decision to start this new Adventure, really admirable.

Taetske, I just read a post by LaurenJean, where she introduced a wonderful book, The Secret Code of Success", which you have recommended her to read. I must order it right away!

"Why am I getting more and more confident every day?"
"Why am I getting more and more succesful every day?"

Pernilla - Excellent post. This about sums it up.

"Rich people do not complain about problems, do not avoid problems, and do not complain about problems."

Rich people or successful people see problems as opportunities and capitalize on them for their benefit.

Look at problems as possibilities and it will lead to eventual success.

Thank you Phil!

Yes, it will pay dividends, I'm working very hard on changing my mindset and I already feel more confident since I started to read this books and other similar books/videos, by for example Tony Robbins, Timothy Ferris, Brian Tracy. It just needs time to change a thought structure, but it is necessary if I want to be successful in business.

Your mission is to fulfill your vision!

Yes, it is important to read and learn from other successful people. If we follow their advices and take action, then we will achieve our goals a bit faster than by doing trial after trial all by ourselves.

I like how you took the main points of this tidbit from the book and expanded on it to make it your own, which helps us internalize the lessons...Good job, good read, and good info! Thanks (now I will have to go back through and look at some of the other posts you have made from the book!)! Cheers! Dave : )

Hello Dave!

Thank you very much for the compliments, really makes my confidence grow!!

I just love this book, it has opened up my eyes to how important it is to have the right mindset if you want to be successful. It needs a lot of work and repetition until the new thought structure gets manifested, but it is really worth it.

Hope you'll like the other Wealth File-posts too.

Cheers,

This is good information. My mother's side of the family came from millianaire's. My grandparents were very rich. When they passed away, they left their entire fortunes to 3 of their 18 children because they knew the farmland would get split up and become useless if they didn't. My grandfather was born rich, and he was always working hard and creating new ventures while the market was high, but had these ventures set up so that it was easy to walk away from when the market shifted. That is how I do with one of my businesses that is not online. I am currently running at 50% because of the market, but I will ramp up when the market settles. You have to not be afraid to take chances and willing to invest your personal money at times. I never got a bank loan because I do not like paying interest. I learned this from my grandfather.

Hello Stanley!

I'm happy to hear that you liked my post. Thank you so much for your very interesting comment.

You seem to have inherited the mindset of your grandfather. That's the most valuable legacy of all, I think. Knowledge no one can take away from you. Knowledge is the foundation for success.

It's a great advice to not be afraid of taking chances and be willing to do wise investments.

Wish you ongoing success!
:-)
