When studying people and whether we generally have wealthy or scarcity mindsets, something becomes glaringly apparent.
Generally, if you were born into a middle or lower-middle-class family that had struggles making ends meet, you will be less likely to have a wealthy mindset than if you were born into a wealthy family.
People can have different mindsets even if they had the same amount of money.
But if your perception is that you possess the means to achieve anything you want in life you’ll behave differently than if you perceive and believe otherwise.
This, my friend, boils down to your mindset.
The good news is that you don’t have to be born wealthy to have a wealthy mindset.
You can change your outlook on things no matter your social status or any other demographics.
Here are seven ways to develop a wealthy mindset.

8 Tips For Developing A Money-Manifesting Mindset
1- Define What Wealth Means to You
First, if you want to develop a wealthy or abundant mindset, you must define what wealth means for you.
How much money do you need to earn to feel wealthy or to be able to make the kinds of choices that will lead to more wealth for you?
Choose a real number.
Yes, true abundance and wealth can be in non-monetary terms, but the truth is, you often need money to live a happy life.
Money doesn’t make you happy, but money can make a happy life easier.
It’s important here to select a number that works for you. Not what you think you should want based on external motivation.
Also, choose a number that really resonates. Think about it some.
Don’t just blurt out “a million dollars” without thinking about it.
Maybe you’d be thrilled with $50,000 per year and your goals, dreams and ambitions would all be met with that amount of money.
Maybe for the type of lifestyle, you desire, a million dollars wouldn’t even scratch the surface.
Take time to think about this and make sure you start with the right idea that works well for you.
2- Set Clear Monetary Goals
Once you have set your wealth number, and lifestyle ideas for yourself, it’s also essential to use that information to set clear monetary goals.
You may not be close to those goals, but when you spell out what you want your life to look like, it’s going to be a lot easier to get there.
Think of it like planning a trip.
You wouldn’t set out on a journey or vacation without proper planning, would you?
Likewise, think of your monetary goal as the destination point for the most epic journey ever.
It’s more fun and effective that way.
3- Develop an Action Plan
Next, think of as many avenues you can to get you from point A to point B.
Start with the most obvious like increasing income at your job or upgrading skills to find a new one.
Or maybe you want to create a business plan that will help you meet your income requirements.
What skills or abilities do you have that you can leverage to generate wealth?
Are you comfortable with the idea of making investments – no matter how large or small?
If not yet, are you willing to learn?
When you know exactly what you need to do today to produce the income you need tomorrow, you’re going to be much more successful in your endeavors.
4- Surround Yourself with Likeminded People
Next, it’s incredibly important that if you want to elevate your money mindset, you surround yourself with people who share similar goals.
You may need to find new friends and colleagues to surround yourself with if you are often getting pushback from your friends, family, and coworkers with your new mindset and ideas.
This does not mean you eliminate or abandon current friendships and partnerships.
You just add more to your circle.
Where do you find people who share the wealthy mindset?
Join local groups, find international groups, or locate a life and business coach who can encourage and help you realize your goals by giving you some accountability.
5- Implement Your Plan
You can tell the universe all day long that you want to manifest a million dollars, but if you aren’t doing something to generate those funds it’s not going to happen magically. You have to create a plan and start taking the actions needed to achieve your goals within the various areas.
6- Measure, Track, and Adjust Your Plan
What gets measured gets improved upon.
You can only be sure you’re heading in the right direction if you check your numbers and track the data.
For example, if you said you needed to earn 100 dollars a day to reach your goal for the month, did you reach that goal?
Once you check your numbers, if you find that things aren’t working as planned you can adjust. If you find that things are working better than you thought you can do more of it.
7- Express Gratitude
Once you start to see the wheels of your money manifestation turning, it’s time to express gratitude.
Some people wrongfully believe that the most important part of having a wealthy mindset is always anticipating more and more. But that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Feeling abundant and excited and grateful for all that you already have ultimately leads to more.
To be abundant you must feel abundant.
It’s okay to always want more.
Humans are made to desire progress, after all.
But you earn and receive more when you’re grateful for all that you already have.
Keep that in mind and you’ll be well on your way to manifesting even more, without much effort.
8- Spread The Love
Finally, generosity is the last step to adjusting your money mindset.
It may sound counterintuitive that you will receive more once you give more.
And if you’re struggling with money as it is, you may feel like you don’t have much to give.
The thing is, assuming and believing you don’t have anything to give is the polar opposite of having a wealthy mindset. It is operating from a place of scarcity.
Believing you deserve abundance is believing you are abundant.
You always, always have something of value to give and share. It doesn’t always have to be money!
Whether it’s your time, your energy, creative ideas, your nurturing spirit, a listening ear, sharing food… you have so many gifts and talents.
Once you open your heart and your mind to others and understand that we are all connected, you will start to see unimaginable shifts in your energy and your life.
And you will receive more wealth and abundance than you ever imagined.
Happy manifesting! 🙂
