Yesterday I talked about possessing an instinct that enabled you to make money or lacking the instinct which meant that you were not able to make the money you want in your life. Both of these “possessions” are fiction and only exist in people’s minds but that in itself will cause them to become self fulfilling prophesies. If you believe something to be true then it will be true to you and because of this belief you will act accordingly and get results that match you belief.
So in order to make it a little more clear what I am trying to say then there is no such thing as a money making instinct and everyone that wants to make more money than they are currently doing can do that. But in order to do so you must change the way you act and the things you believe to be true. If you keep doing what you have always done and you keep believe what you have always believed then you will get the results that you have always gotten and that will not change the way things are.
Luckily there are a lot of different ways to do this and none of them are right or wrong and most of them will get you closer to the end goal. You do not have to create major changes in your life because even small changes in the right direction will increase your likelihood of making more money if that is what you’re after.
Let me give you an example that you might be able to relate to. Let us assume that you want to make more money because you are currently in a situation where you are spending more money that you are making from your job. You want to change that situation and there are two ways to do this.
- Learn how to spend less money than you are currently doing
- Learn how to create an extra income for yourself
Both of these will change your current situation and make things better than they currently are. So what solution should you choose? Personally I would recommend both but it is important to take one at a time to not be overwhelmed. If you need results quickly because of the situation you have brought yourself in then the saving option will probably get you some results faster than finding a money making solution will.
If you think that you can’t possibly cut back on anything then you are not trying hard enough. Cut up your credit cards and have your banker take 10% of your monthly paycheck and put into a closed account that you can’t touch. That will solve your problem quickly. You might not like it a first but you’ll get used to living this way within a month or two.
The second option will also require that you do something that you haven’t done before. You can take steps like spending 30 minutes a day looking for (or coming up with) ways that you can make an additional income. You can try selling some of your old stuff on EBay or you can sell other people’s stuff and split the profits. You can start creating your own website and place advertisements on it (like Adsense etc.) and start making money when people click the ads. You can walk the neighbor’s dog, mow their lawn or do their grocery shopping. There are literally and endless ocean of possibilities and if you make it a habit of spending just 30 minutes a day coming up with ways to make more money you will definitely come up with things that you can easily start doing and get that extra income going pretty quickly.
