The easiest way to an empowering money mindset is to create a simple routine which then makes your subconscious mind work for you!
Money will be part of your life, all your life. Therefore, the relationship you have with money is instrumental to your financial future and freedom. This is one of the easiest ways I know to make sure you constantly train your brain to work in your favor in order to create a positive and empowering money mindset!
How to make it happen
Withdraw some cash and make sure it’s a bunch of them. Put at least one large bill (100 USD or equivalent) outside of the rest of the bills and put them in your pocket, wallet, purse or handbag (ideally your pocket). The intention is NOT to spend them, they are there to visually, physically and mentally remind you that you have money! Every time you put your hand in your pocket or even just touch it on the outside, you feel your roll of money. A signal is sent to your brain – money!
That signal of “money in your pocket” will be sent in your neural network every time you feel that roll or just remind yourself of that roll of money in your pocket. How many times do you think you will be reminded every day that you have that roll of money in your pocket? Well, if you put it in the same pocket as your phone and you are the “average person”, you will probably touch it hundreds if not thousands of times every day!
When we do the same thing so many times over and over again, our brain will eventually remember and understand that you have money! What has happened is that you have created new neural pathways in your brain and the more you use it, the stronger the connection! You can think of it like a tiny, tiny road to start with but as you use it enough times that dirt road might become as big as a freeway!
As you bring out the roll, first thing you see is a big bill! Now your brain knows that you always have money and that you have a big bill and that the roll is big! It doesn’t matter if some of the bills inside of your roll are small as you brain will only notice two things: money in your pocket (when you touch it) and when it becomes visible, a hundred dollar bill!
If you want to see it as often as possible, start paying with cash and only use the small bills in the middle. You will still see and feel that big roll of money all the time!
It might sound lame but does it really matter? You don’t have to do anything more than putting that roll in your pocket and leave it there for a month to try it out. There is no effort in that and you don’t have to tell anyone why you’re doing it or even that you are doing it. What will happen is that your mind will learn that you always have money so the feeling or instant thought you might normally have when it comes to money (I don’t have enough) will be replaced by “I have money”! The more you strengthen this with additional positive thoughts linked to money, the faster and deeper you will make changes to your brain and your habits and automatic thoughts about money.
Why I know it works
I don’t come from money and my family has always been working class. We have always had “enough” but I was for sure not brought up with an empowering money mindset. At home, they were using the same expression as you probably have heard so many times before: “money doesn’t grow on trees” or “do you think we are made out of money” and so on.
On the other hand it could be that this actually helped me become interested in money and how to make them. One thing that has been with me for as long as I can remember is to always have money in my pocket. I wanted to have a big pile of cash as it made me feel good. When I could, I always had the biggest bill I owned on the outside of my roll of cash. Every time I needed to pay for something, the first thing I would see was that big bill of mine and that made me feel good about money. When I flipped through my roll of money, I knew that most of the bills were small and that only the outer one was big but still it gave me a good feeling. Every time I put my hand in my pocket, I felt that big roll of cash!
Of course I can’t prove that this is THE reason why I have always had a positive money mindset BUT it’s one of the things I know I did intentionally during my whole upbringing. What we do know it that when we can feel the cash numerous times per day and our brain knows that it’s there, it becomes a habitual response. Eventually you won’t even have to touch the role, you just know that it’s there and your subconscious mind will know that you have money!
When contemplating to buy something, my mind never goes “do I have the money”, NO, it knows I have the money in my pocket! I have trained my mind to know that I always have money. The question of weather or not I will actually buy it, is completely different!
By always having money and by always touching the money you will reprogram your brain to know that you have money! Your poor money mindset focusing on scarcity or lack of money will be overrun and replaced by your new empowering money mindset as it has become a habit and your subconscious mind is working in your favor to strengthen that mindset even further!
