Money-brain1Have you ever met a person or crossed paths with a person that seems to have an abundance of everything in life, including money? Surely you have, we all have. Have you ever wondered how exactly that person became so successful and built such a blessed life?

The answer to that question is likely a lot more simple than you think. Some people think that these people just got lucky in life or that they were born into it. While this may be true in some situations, in most it couldn’t be any further from the truth. The truth is, people who are able to establish a wealthy life for themselves usually have one thing in common. They know how to pay attention to the thoughts they have and they also do everything they can to turn those same thoughts into a reality.

We as humans, for some reason, have a tendency to doubt ourselves. Some people’s doubts were ingrained in their childhood while others may have experienced past failures or downfalls that created it. No matter what the cause of the doubt is, it is toxic and we must ensure that we do everything we can to shut this doubt out of our minds.

Have you ever had an idea for an invention or maybe previously planned on beginning a new business venture but stopped progress because you didn’t think it would go anywhere? If so, you are not alone! However, I know from personal experience, there is nothing more frustrating than doubting in your idea and then seeing your idea being featured somewhere else with another person getting the credit for the idea.

For example, as a child I had an idea for a certain style of shoes. However, I didn’t think that the style would catch on and thought that it would be impossible to get my idea to go anywhere. About five years later, the same style I had in mind was all over the shelves and was even being endorsed by some of the biggest designer brands. Needless to say, I was kicking myself in the butt. Who knows what kind of life I could have created for myself if I would have simply listened to my thoughts and turned them into a reality.

You have probably had experiences in the past that are much the same. Surely some of the circumstances would be different but the bottom line would be the same, doubting in a thought and cutting yourself short.

There is a saying that tends to be quite popular, “it takes money to make money”. While it is understandable that people would think this, it is not necessarily true. All it really takes to create an abundance of finances for yourself is a healthy mind and the ability to intercept and understand the messages that our thoughts relay to us.

It is important that you understand the fact that the road to financial abundance may be a bumpy ride and it may even be scary at times. However, the people who are able to hold on during the ride are the ones who seem to be able to rise to the top and obtain the best things that life has to offer. You can ask any millionaire about their journey to success and they will likely tell you it was scary at times but they will also surely tell you that following a simple thought changed their entire life.

There are things you can do to make the whole process of following an idea or a dream a little less scary. The following ideas should help you get off to a good start:

• Analyze the pros and cons
This may seem like a tip that is a bit played out but that is likely because of the fact that it actually works and it is extremely effective. List out all the pros and cons of following your new idea or thought. After creating your list, carefully analyze each pro and con and determine within yourself if it is worth the risk or not. It is important that you understand that a life of financial abundance will not come easy, you will need to push your level of comfort.

• Get A Mentor
Finding a good mentor is probably one of the best decisions you can make when trying to learn how to peruse thoughts and ideas and turn them into something real and profitable. Keep in mind the fact that I said “good mentor”, you don’t necessarily want to choose a mentor who has a hard time paying their bills. It can be difficult at times to establish a relationship with a mentor, but it is possible. There are plenty of people who would love to share the knowledge and life lessons they have learned down their road to success.

• Build your confidence
Perhaps one of the most important ingredients needed for success is self-confidence. You need to be able to believe in yourself if you want to be able to push your life forward. Take a look at a few millionaires, it may appear that they are full of themselves, however it is nothing more than the fact that they understand that they have something to offer the world. Whenever you begin to doubt yourself, push that toxic mentality away and replace it with times in the past that you have been victorious and have overcome tough obstacles.

Creating a financially blessed future is something that is going to take much time and effort. In all honesty, the only time it happens overnight is with a lucky lottery ticket purchase and I wouldn’t advise that you sit around and wait for that to happen.

You too can be a person that turns a simple thought into a money generating blessing, you just need to believe in yourself and get the process started. Tap into your ideas and thoughts and use them to your advantage. You will surely look back on life one day and wonder why you didn’t do it sooner!
