Think of three things you wanted to do this week, but decided not to because you didn’t have enough money.
Take just a second to think about it…
That probably didn’t take very long did it,
Chances are that there are a ton of things you’d like to do each day but you don’t, because of money.
You can’t live without it, and just never seem to have enough of it, am I right?
For most people, the story is the same.
You were never taught how to make money, or how to save and invest it.
They taught you all sorts of useless shit in school, but nothing important about how to play the financial game we’re all trapped in.
If you ask me, that’s the biggest scam out there, and it’s why there are so many people who struggle to make it, and so few people who ever do.
They don’t teach this shit in school.
But fortunately, you’re not the first one to forge their own path, nor was I. I had excellent mentors to learn from and guides to follow.
You do too.
Today I’m going to lay out the top three money making tricks you should know.
These aren’t just ways to make money on the side. These are ways to live your life from a wealth mindset.
Don’t just hope for riches; hope isn’t enough.
The money making tricks they never taught you
These are three proven ways to increase your income and maintain financial stability as you forge your own path to success.
They’ve worked for me, and they’ve worked for countless others before me.
So, number one:
Associate with people you want to be like
It is well documented that people tend to earn a similar income to their closest friends. There are countless reasons why this is usually true and they all point to the same thing.
Success is contagious, and so is failure.
If you hang out with a bunch of broke friends, you’re going to stay right where you are– broke.
Your mindset won’t change, your bank account won’t change, and your situation won’t change.
Instead, start spending more time with people who inspire you or who do what you want to do or live how you want to live.
Surround yourself with people who live in a wealth mindset and you will find it easy to live with one too.
You will be more motivated, see more opportunities, and find more success in a better social circle.
If you hang out with a bunch of losers, I hate to say it, but that makes you a loser too.
Always have more than one source of income
Never put all your eggs in one basket. You don’t become wildly successful by working your day job. That’s ridiculous.
Wild success comes from what else you bring into your life. Having a second job, freelancing on the side, or art sales to back you up not only pads your bank account, it also builds your resume and experience.
You are a more valuable employee if you have more skills.
But hell, forget being an employee, you’re a more powerful employer. If you’re on the path to being your own boss, then this is even more important.
Never rely on just one source of income. It limits your financial freedom and your mental capacity. It causes you to grow stale and jaded. Life on a one way street just isn’t very inspiring.
Put away 10% of everything you earn
This is exactly as simple as it sounds, but the results can be profound. If you are still working a day job or haven’t had the chance to build up a solid base of savings yet, here’s how.
All you do is start. Open a new savings account and title it 10% personal wealth. Each time you get a paycheck or a sell something, put 10% of what you earned into this account.
You don’t use this for groceries, or emergencies, or vacations. You save it. Once you have enough money, you invest it wisely.
The money you save in this account will be yours for the rest of your life.
No more thinking of money as a thing to be spent. Start thinking of money as a thing to be hoarded and kept.
The bigger this account gets, the better you’ll feel.
And strangely enough, the more you’ll make in your day to day life.
It’s great to read all about success, and to think of all the things you could do to make more money. That’s great, but none of it makes you more money.
In order to see results, you’ve got to go do something about it.
If all you’re friends are broke, then maybe it’s time for some new ones.
Or if all your friends complain about how they can never catch a break, maybe their mindset is never going to help you get where you’re going.
Go meet someone new, or catch up with that friend from way back who is making it happen now.
The good thing is that successful people are usually more than willing to share knowledge and information, to help you along the way.
After all, most of them were in your shoes one day, asking themselves the same question…
Is it possible for me?
Of course it’s possible for you!
Get online and start looking up freelancing, or open an Etsy store, or apply for a part time job doing something you love.
If you don’t already have one, obtain a second or a third source of income and organize your life so that it can fit.
The extra money that you’ll start bringing in will make it easy to tackle number three.
Just log in to your bank’s online portal and open up that 10% personal wealth account right now. Seriously, you can do that one without even getting up from your computer.
And sure, these three money making tricks alone aren’t going to make you a millionaire. But what they will do is get you off your ass and get you thinking like a money maker.
Start looking for opportunities, start building positive relationships, start saving your money instead of spending it. Soon doors will start to open and the path will become clear.
But you have to start now!
