Being In Survival Mode Will Never Make You Rich

March 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 101

I've been noticing a lot of women I've talked to lately are feeling pretty discouraged and downright negative about the economy. The news is bad, bad, bad. Last week at the two conferences I attended I heard lots of fear around money. I heard statements like...I'm afraid I'll...

• run out of money

• not have enough

• lose it all

• never get out of debt

• spend it all

• never be rich


That's what fear makes you go into survival mode and tricks you into thinking that the worst will happen. If you fall into the trap of believing the worst, you will actually MAKE it happen.

Are you feeling fearful about the economy? Or like you've been given a great buying opportunity?

Building wealth has a lot to do with how you think. You have to be a little creative to be a good investor because you have to think opposite of the crowd. As Warren Buffett says, "You need to be greedy when others are fearful and fearful when others are greedy."

Buying low is about being greedy when others are fearful. Check in with yourself. Is fear coming up? What are you fearing? Can you tell? Most of the time our thoughts and fears around money are subconscious, so we don't realize them in our conscious mind. If you are able to identify them in your conscious mind, that's a gift because then you can work on changing your belief. If you can't identify them, that's ok. We can work on that over time.


I want you to have a new reality about money. Right now.

First, there is far more potential to build wealth than you currently believe. It's just not going to be made in the same places it has been in the last 20 years. You must consider new opportunities for wealth building and stop looking to the old places (stocks and real estate) to recover.

Second, you can become wealthy if you value money and seek how to build wealth. If you don't value money, you won't ever have any. You must value it, treat it as if it's important to you (because it is), and invest your time to understand, not fear it. That will serve you well and be money well spent.

It's time you became wealthy. Your wealth begins in YOUR MIND. That is the foundation of all wealth. You can be a good steward of money if you want to be. There's no better time than now to make that commitment.
