The American Heritage Dictionary defines wealth as: An abundance of valuable material possessions or resources; riches. Wealth is a dollar figure, a state of mind and a way of living life day-to-day. Here are a few abundance and wealth clues we can learn from self-made wealthy people.
Self-made wealthy people seem to do certain things that those of us who aren’t as wealthy don’t do on a regular basis. Achieving wealth, abundance and prosperity can leave powerful clues and here are a few:
Wealthy People – Expect to become and stay wealthy.
Wealth is a powerful mindset. Self-made wealthy people believe without a doubt that they will become wealthy. Call it Law of Attraction or positive belief but their mind-set gives them the motivation and self-confidence to create unlimited prosperity and abundance.
Wealthy People – Believe it is natural and noble to make, have and enjoy money.
Feeling guilty about having wealth will often lead to self-sabotaging behavior. Wealthy people understand that they can do more for themselves and others by having wealth than by being broke.
Wealthy People – Have a wealth-building plan.
Not only do self-made wealthy people have a plan, it is an organized plan of action. They have a well thought out and viable strategy for achieving their wealth goals. Wealthy people think in terms of “how many ways” can I make my plan for the future a reality.
Wealthy People– Are on purpose and stay focused on the future.
It’s a common law of success that if you want something badly enough you’ll develop an almost laser-beamed focus on the future. Achieving prosperity means keeping your eye on the prize.
Wealthy People – Persist and persevere.
Self-made wealthy people are not deterred by the bumps along the road to success. Giving up on their dreams and goals is not an option.
Wealthy People – Control their expenditures.
Knowing how to control your money is a key to achieving and maintaining wealth. Knowing when to buy, save and invest is vital to building self-made wealth and ongoing residual income.
Wealthy People – Have faith in themselves and the future.
Belief is an invaluable success tool. Wealthy people believe without an ounce of doubt that the future is bright, abundant and promising. Self-made wealthy people affirm their success daily in thought, actions and words.
Wealthy People – Learn, learn and learn some more about financial matters.
Self-education can make the difference between surviving and thriving. Education means asking questions, seeking expert advice and learning from others who have been there, done that and succeeded.
Wealthy People – Have integrity.
Truly happy and self-satisfied wealthy people have learned that to truly enjoy wealth it is important to live a life governed by, “Do onto others as you would have others do unto you.”
Wealthy People – Give freely of time, energy and resources.
Self-made wealthy people know that giving back is the greatest gift you can share with others. By helping others, we help ourselves to emotionally and spiritually appreciate our blessings.
Wealthy People– Prize relationships above money and possessions.
Money is only paper and possessions are only things. Wealthy people who are truly happy and self-satisfied prize their family, friends and community above all else.
Wealthy People – Look forward to the future with optimism.
I remember this quote by Oprah Winfrey, “When I look into the future, it is so bright it burns my eyes.” Wouldn’t you say that Oprah is an ideal self-made role model?
Wealthy People – Know that wealth opportunities are everywhere.
Have you ever read the classic story, Acres of Diamonds? It is about a farmer who sells his property and home to go on a search for treasure in a foreign land. Shortly after purchasing the farmer’s land, the new owners discover acres and acres of diamonds on the property. The moral of the story: Opportunities to create abundance and wealth are everywhere; we just have to be receptive enough to know them when we see them.
How many self-made wealthy traits do you see within yourself? Wouldn't you agree, wealth leave clues?
