Thinking Rich: The Growth Mindset

The idea of thinking rich depends on your confidence in your ability. It’s believing in yourself and understanding the fact you’re competent enough to accomplish what could seem near impossible. Human consciousness is capable of so much but more often then not we stand in the way of our own accomplishments.

Why Think Rich?

Thinking rich is important in building one’s own self-esteem. It’s so easy for us to take the path of least resistance and live day-to-day with no goals, no passion. Thinking rich may not always be the easiest thing to do but it’s one of the biggest factors to becoming one’s best self.

Barriers to Thinking Rich

Nowadays it can be so hard to think rich. We’re so overwhelmed and consumed by everyday products and technology that a lot of us neglect simple routines that could ultimately propel our happiness exponentially.

Day by day neglect eats away at our self-esteem. We learn to live with the pain; we bury it so deep in our psych we almost forget it’s there. Thinking rich is acknowledging the truth about life and being able to rise out of the madness. We are the master’s of our own destinies; we create our future, we can’t be happy just gliding; through drifting through life.

Principle #1 - Acknowledging Negative Thoughts

Thinking rich is acknowledging the automatic negative thoughts (the ANTs) and being able to move past them. Thinking upbeat and positive we are better able to find our flow rather than interrupting ourselves with negative thinking. Make sure you’re mind is one that nurture’s not sabotages your well-being.

Principle #2 - Building Momentum

Upbeat & full of energy – living with passion & purpose. Thinking rich is taking control of your life and moving progressionally to where it is we want to be. In time our progress will inspire and self-motivate but until then we must focus on action. The fruits of labour will come in time, begin sowing and soon enough you’ll begin reaping what you’ve sown.

Principle #3 - Be Resourceful

Thinking rich, moving towards success means not squandering resources and opportunities. Thinking rich we are more in tuned with our surroundings and better able to recognize the opportunities that precede us.

Principle #4 - Think Action

Thinking rich is thinking action. It’s thinking for today, not tomorrow. Planning is important but planning obsessively without taking action is just wasting time. Be deliberate with your word; if you claim you’re going to do something don’t stop till you do it.

Principle #5 - Focus on Closing & Completing

Focus on closing & completing. Don’t just set your sights on accomplishing everything. Live with purpose, do those things that are most important and most urgent in that moment. Tackle your biggest problems first, your biggest projects, and don’t stop till you’ve got something to show for.

Thinking rich is a perspective. Thinking rich is never feeling down because we know mistakes are all part of the learning experience. Don’t be afraid to think rich and don’t let others convince you you’re foolish for doing so. Thinking rich is a successful mindset that guarentees abundance whether be relationships or resources.
