How do you live a wealthier life?
This is the million-dollar question that many of us spend our lives trying to figure out. I, for one, have been on this journey of trying to live a wealthier life for the past two years now.
But it might not be how you think.
See, for me, being wealthy is more than just money. Don’t get me wrong, money can be a factor, but it isn’t the only factor. People often use the words “rich” and “wealthy” in the same context, but they do not mean the same things.
Wealth is the abundance of a valuable possession. While that possession could be money, it could also be love, experiences, emotions, or any other possession.
Being rich is to have a great deal of money or assets. It is part of being wealthy.
So while you can live a wealthy life without being rich, you can’t be rich without being wealthy.
How to Live A Wealthier Life
If you want to live a wealthier life, you need to develop a mindset that will reflect as such. This means being true to you, knowing what your goals are in life, and never letting anybody take away from the amazing person you already are.
I know it sounds cliche to say, but embracing who you already are as a person truly is the first step in order to living a wealthier life. I had to take that same step as well, and while I admit that it was scary at first, it was so worth it.
No, I may not be the richest person on the face of the planet… yet… but I have found more happiness, more love, and more fulfillment in my life since I focused on shifting my mindset. Had I not taken this first step, I don’t know where I would be today. And to be quite truthful, I don’t want to know.
3 Mental Hacks To Live A Wealthier Life
Maybe you are someone who is struggling like I was. If so, just know that it does get better. No matter what, never stop believing in yourself and moving forward with your life regardless of what anybody else tells you.
I want to share with you 3 mental hacks to live a wealthier life that have worked for me, and I know they will do the same for you as well.
1. Define What Wealth Means to You
Only you can define what wealth means to you.
For some, being wealthy means having millions of dollars in the bank. For others, it may mean traveling the world and feeling a sense of freedom from doing so.
A wealth mindset is a set of beliefs, behaviors, and habits that ultimately help a person to live a successful life. But again, just as a wealthy life, living a successful life is going to be defined differently by everybody.
Having this mindset will guide you towards living the best life you have ever lived… each and every single day.
To define what wealth means to you, sit down and do some thinking. What is it that you really want to accomplish in life? Forget about what others expect of you. What is it that YOU want to be doing with your life? Keep sight of this vision and then determine what you plan to do to turn it into your reality.
2. Celebrate Everybody’s Wins Instead of Prioritizing Your Losses
This is something that we all struggle with on a daily basis. At least I know I do.
I have found myself spending so much of my time and energy competing against those around me, that I have forgotten to compete against the only person that matters – the individuals I was the day before.
It doesn’t matter what other people are doing with their lives. You are living your life. If you want to find wealth in your life, then what others are doing with their lives isn’t even relevant.
If you want to do something challenging – something that will also expedite the process of obtaining wealth – try celebrating everybody’s wins instead of fearing your own losses.
You only get what you attract. The more you celebrate with others, the more good you attract. The more good you attract, the more good you will receive.
Jealousy is the number one killer of any and all dreams. Be happy for those around you, celebrate their wins, and compete only against the individual you were the day prior.
3. Never Stop Learning & Growing
Life is a learning game.
I don’t know about you, but if I would have closed off my mind two years ago and stopped learning, I would still be the same miserable little sh*t I was.
But I didn’t. I read as many self-improvement books as I could possibly read, I challenged myself to push out of my comfort zone as much as possible, and I sought knowledge from individuals who have achieved a wealthier life before me.
Because I never stopped learning and never stopped trying to grow as a person, I am now living the best life I have ever lived.
That’s what it takes. If you want to live a wealthier life, you should never stop learning and never stop growing. If you become complacent, you are only going to find yourself resorting back to old habits. I, for one, never want to go back to those.
Before You Go
The best part about developing a wealth mindset is that you can start right now. It doesn’t matter who you are, what struggles you may have faced in the past, or where you are currently at in your life, if you want to live a wealthier life, the only way to do so is to just get started.
Start small, build your way up, and no matter what you do, never give up. You are you, and that will always be your greatest strength. Use these 3 mental hacks to live a wealthier life, and be on your way to greatness.
