Let's talk about how to focus our minds to create more value, and therefore create more money. As with most things, it all starts in the brain. And you’re in luck because I know a bit about the brain. And I am going to share what I know with you.
How to Make More Money (hint: it’s not the way you think):
Money is the avenue by which a person can buy something of value, whether that is a resource, an opportunity, or an experience. We exchange money for value.
To make more money, we need to create more value.
More value= more money
And how do we create more value? With our minds.
Therefore, we create money with our minds.
Think about that for a second.
You can create money.
We usually don’t think about money as something we create. We think of it in terms of being available to us or not, and then we either complain or enjoy it. We use words like, “earn”, “borrow”, “find” or “make”. The word “make” sounds like creating, but what we really mean is that we earned it somehow.
Why is that? Why don’t we speak about creating money?
I think for most of us, the idea that we can create money feels very uncomfortable. Because that would mean we would have to take responsibility for whether or not we have it. It is much easier to play the victim to our circumstances- our jobs, our customers, our location, the market, etc.
But owning that responsibility is the only way to step in and actually do it!
Now I am not saying that every person has equal opportunity. Obviously, different people’s circumstances do present different obstacles- their race, gender, socioeconomic status, education, culture, job opportunities, etc. (How I wish that weren’t the case!) But I am saying that every person CAN create money if they create value with their mind.
This month, we are going to focus on how to use our minds to create more value, and therefore create more money. As with most things, it all starts in the brain. And you’re in luck because I know a bit about the brain. And I am going to share what I know with you.
Are you ready to make more money? Who’s with me?
