HOW TO CHANGE YOUR MINDSET

Want to have an abundance mindset instead of a scarcity mindset? You can do it with these six steps.

Abundance isn’t just about money. An abundant life is full of happiness, creativity, and the beauty of nature.

You can be a more successful person with a positive mindset.

RECOGNIZE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

Negative thoughts come, and if you get into the habit of recognizing them, you can make that mindset shift.

Negative thoughts can be really sneaky. So the sooner that you stop the negativity, the easier it is.

Get into the habit of recognizing them and replacing the negative thoughts with positive ones.

You can even think of a subject that you may be having trouble with and write down all the negative thoughts you have about it.

It’s easier to recognize the negative thoughts you have when you first identify them.

Once those thoughts have been identified, you will be much more likely to notice when you think them in the future.

FOCUS ON THE POSITIVE

We have thoughts all day long, every day. So when you catch yourself having negative thoughts, think the exact opposite. 

You can even do some “opposite talk,” as I like to call it. Instead of saying, “I am in a bad financial situation.” Say, “My financial situation is improving every day.”

The more you say it, the more you believe it. So speak some positive affirmations and you will change your mindset quickly.

You can even make a list of all the positive things that have happened for you recently, and when you see them all written down, it will make you feel so good.

It’s easier to focus on the positive when you see it in writing.

BE A PROBLEM SOLVER TO CHANGE YOUR MINDSET

Don’t let fear stand in your way when you have a problem. Instead, start thinking about how you can solve the problem.

Problems are opportunities. It may seem bad at the moment, but you can focus on finding a solution that will give you more confidence to keep solving more problems. 

Businesses are built around solving problems. Turn your problems into solutions, and they may even make you some money.

THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

Instead of having a fixed mindset, you can have a growth mindset when approaching problems.

Grab your pen and paper and brainstorm all the solutions you can think of.

When you work to change your mindset, you keep getting better and better at it the more you practice.

Some of the best inventions were created to solve problems when the inventors were thinking outside the box.

If you like challenges, make it fun! Think of new creative solutions and give them a try. What do you have to lose?

GIVE YOURSELF SOME SLACK

Not being perfect is not a bad thing. But, on the other hand, nobody is perfect, so give yourself some slack.

If you are working too much, take a break and infuse some work-life balance into your life.

If things seem to keep going wrong, ask the universe, “What are you showing me?” Then sit back, relax for a bit and wait for the answer.

The answer you get may not be the one you want to hear at the moment, but eventually, you will look back and realize it all worked out in the end. 

Life was meant to be enjoyed. Success is inevitable if you allow it to flow into your life with ease.

GET OUT INTO NATURE

Nature is perfect for changing your mindset. You can redirect any negative emotions pretty quickly when you get some fresh air and scenic views.

If you can, get out and go camping (if that’s your thing). If not, go glamping. Nature is the perfect remedy to change any negative patterns you have running through your mind.

Take off your shoes and put your bare feet in the soft grass, and an hour later, you will have a brand new mindset.

IDENTIFY LIMITING BELIEFS

Do you have limiting beliefs around your financial goals? You don’t have to, you know. You can even manifest money like magic.

Why does there need to be any block to you having financial freedom? Did you just think of a reason? That’s a limiting belief.

When you begin to identify any limiting beliefs, you can then change your thinking. 

Whoever said money can’t buy happiness must never have been broke.

There is nothing wrong with wanting to be financially secure. However, you can’t help anyone if you don’t have the money to do it.

If you need to change your thinking around your financial goals, you can identify any limiting beliefs and grow your positive money mindset.

USE EFT TAPPING

EFT tapping is an incredible tool to change your mindset. 

Here is a great explanation and how to use EFT tapping.

When you tap, it’s a pattern disrupter. You can change your negative thinking and beliefs into positive thoughts or beliefs. 

It works almost instantly. However, it’s like brushing your teeth. If you want to keep your energy clean, it’s good to tap every day.

HAVE AN ATTITUDE OF GRATITUDE

There is nothing like gratitude to change your mindset. 

The more you are grateful for, the more you have to be grateful for. 

Gratitude snowballs. Once you can create an attitude of gratitude, you can get the right mindset.

You feel better, and life is so much more enjoyable.

You can even keep a “gratitude journal” that you write down all the things you are grateful for.

The more you start to write things down, the easier it is to think of more things, and the gratitude starts to wash over you like water.

INDULGE IN SELF-CARE

Do something for yourself. Meditate, take a shower, or a bath. Whatever it is, that helps you feel good about yourself.

When you feel good about yourself, positive thinking comes naturally.

Society has told us that we have to work hard to be successful. 

Yes, of course, you can work hard, but not all the time. You deserve a break too. Indulge in some self-care for a mindset reset.

Self-care doesn’t have to be expensive. A nap in a hammock can do wonders for the most overworked mind.

DE-CLUTTER NEGATIVE PEOPLE

You don’t need to hoard toxic friends who keep you stuck in a negative mindset.

It’s not a bad thing to make your mental health a priority.

Do you have some negative friends that are dragging you down?

Friends that after you spend time with them, they leave you tired and discouraged?

This may be hard to hear, but maybe they are people you need to cut loose.

NOT EVERYONE IS GOOD FOR YOU

Not everyone can see your vision, and if someone continually brings you down, it’s time to clean out the clutter.

De-clutter the friends that hurt you so you can make room for friends with a positive attitude. Friends that can move you toward your successful future while cheering you on.

Sometimes friends declutter themselves, they can’t handle your success, and they talk behind your back, and they put you down.

I get it. I’ve been there. But you know what? It was such a good thing because it was like a breath of fresh air once those friends were gone.

IT’S OK TO LET THEM GO

Do you have some friends that you need to declutter or friends that are removing themselves from your life right now all on their own?

I know it feels bad at the moment, but you’ve got an empire to build, and hanging around negative influences will slow your growth.

You deserve all the success in the world, including true friends.

PREPARE MEALS AHEAD OF TIME

Your stomach and your mind are closely related. So when you are hungry, it’s not easy to be positive.

When you don’t have your meals prepared ahead of time, you grab for quick and easy things. Unfortunately, most of the time, that is junk. 

When you prepare your meals ahead of time, you can make healthy choices easier.

Even if you make a salad and put it in a container for later, it makes having a healthy meal as easy as reaching into the fridge.

When you feel good, it’s easy to change your mindset.

Small changes add up to big results.
