Money and the Mind

A Healthy Mind is a Wealthy Mind

This famous quote attributed to Henry Ford says it all. If you focus on positive thoughts about your hopes, dreams, and goals, your subconscious, the most obedient servant, will carry out your wishes silently, faithfully and to the letter!
Create your own wealth

By James Spurway

Earlier I said that a Healthy Mind is a Wealthy Mind. Do you understand why? Let me explain a bit more in detail. But the topic what we talk about is a wealthy Mindset. Without a wealthy Mindset, there is no way that you ever will get rich and become a Millionaire. 

What is “Mindset”? 

A fixed mental attitude or disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to and interpretations of situations. An inclination or a habit.

Successful athletes, martial artists, world champions in every different sporting code, spiritual leaders of all faiths, and people who overcome life threating diseases and illnesses have it.

Every successful Entrepreneur has it in spades!  What’s “it”? A strong and unwavering belief in themselves and their mission. A “can do” mindset.

Do you have “it”? Yes? Good for you. If not, don’t despair. It’s teachable. You can learn from a mentor like me. 

Give your Mind the right setting

In addition to undertaking Mindset training, all of the Home Based Business Opportunities like “How To Make Money Online”, “Make Money From Home,” and Affiliate Marketing courses we recommend, all come with a Live Coach, and the training will cover skills and mindset training.

Perhaps reading my personal story will help you grasp the power of building and maintain the right Mental Mindset.

I grew up poor. I didn’t know it until about Grade 5 at school. My best mate and I used to swap or share school lunches.

My lunch was often peanut paste and honey sandwiches on wholemeal bread, not the neat square loaves that come pre-sliced, the high-top loaf that we cut ourselves with a bread knife.

My mate often had mutton or corned beef sandwiches on fluffy white sliced bread.  I asked my Mum once why I couldn’t have the same as he had for lunch.

I remember her being very upset, not angry, “just sad.”

My lunches didn’t change, and I didn’t ask again, but as the years went by, I realised that my Mum and Dad were both working the Dairy Farm where we lived, as well as second jobs as Cook and Janitor respectively, just to pay the bills. I was the youngest of our family. 

I know my Dad came perilously close on a couple of occasions to losing the farm to the bank for not being able to pay off a small overdraft Mum and he had, and going to jail for not filing and paying his income tax.

The fact that we were “poor” didn’t bother me. My financial thermostat had been set to the poor, and it seemed comfortable. My Mind blueprint was programmed to poor. I did not have an Entrepreneur spark at all.

 

Mind and Body

With the age of 13 years, I saw a beautiful bike in our town store. It was second hand, but to me, it looked like a Ferrari.

  I wanted the very latest Malvern Star “Dragster” bicycle.  When working on the Farm, I was making about One Dollar a week in pocket money. 

The new bike cost $21. I remember it as clear as day. Midnight blue and lots of chrome. Was I willing to wait half a year to save up for that bike?

No chance!! So, I talked about it with my Dad. He said if I was willing to work on a paddock behind our milking shed, he’d get me the seed and fertilizer I needed. I had to start from ground zero.

Plough the ground, plant the seed, water the plants with buckets of water. Weed the rows with a chip hoe (i.e. the old-fashioned way), spray the plants for pests (using a backpack and hand pump). It all depended on the weather, the insects, pigs and cows not eating my crop. Influences I could not control. I hoped and prayed each day that I succeed with my harvest to buy the bike.

So what do you think did I make it?Did the 13-year-old me see it through? You bet I did. It wasn’t enough to buy the bike, but I got it eventually with other additional work. Oh, Boy was that a hard-earned bike.

I was prepared for all the hard work and did additional work to get there. 

There is a way to call this, it is called a ” Mind -Smart” way to achieve what you want.

@ I had a specific goal in mind (S)

@Set myself a time frame (M)

@ Take Action every day – prepared to walk the extra mile to achieve my goal (A)

@Relevant goal to your life vision and achievement (R)

@Trackable, each Day I worked I saw the progress in getting closer to my bike. (T)

Fast forward to a couple of years ago. I’d been moderately successful at various stages of my life, but never consistent in my ability to find a great business opportunity until I met my wife.

How to Think and Grow Rich  

The Poor yet comfortable part of me kept on butting in. Questioning the need for absolute focus on achieving financial success, at the sacrifice of other facets of my life.

How many times, I did sabotage myself when I started to be successful. Many times I lost count of it.

I loathed the trappings of success that others had and showed. I was stuck in a rut. Between a proverbial rock and a hard place. Does the story have a happy ending? Guess….

My wife, who is the wise one and successful one in our partnership, had been quietly steering me for years in the direction of self-development, meditation, mindfulness etc., which I had in the main ignored.  She had given me or given reference to dozens of books, videos, audio podcasts etc., and I had sporadically dabbled in them.

When I came around a Training of a leading Internet Marketing Firm that specialized in Education, one of their subjects was “Mind Set Training”. It blew me away. One task was to read 3 of the best selling books about Money and Wealth. 

My first book was T.Harv Eker “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind”

I remember it clearly. The day I was reading the booked called “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T. Harv Eker.

There is a chapter he mentioned that we all have a money blueprint. We all have a financial thermostat. And hence we all have a positive or negative, healthy or unhealthy relationship to money, and by default, financial success.

The second Book” Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill

Book 3 “The Science of getting rich” by Wallace Wattles

 

The rest, as the saying goes is history.  I was able to stare the other me directly in the face and claim with a clear conscience that I wanted the financial freedom that had eluded me all my life. I was able to start correcting bad money habits that had built up over 40 years. I was able to see what business opportunities were worth pursuing and what were merely fools gold.

I’m still a work in progress but I’m happy that I discovered the key to business success, and mindset before it was too late. So I wish you well as you embark on your journey to make money online, or make money from home. To your success!

Hi Erika,
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog. I’m glad you got something out of it! 🙂
Big dreams and small goals!! What’s he talking about, I hear you say…!
The secret to getting from where you are now to where you want to be is to have big dreams, and then set yourself small, achievable and measurable goals. And then achieve them, and set some more. And then achieve those, and set some slightly bigger goals, and achieve those. And keep on repeating the process, until you realize how “good” you really are.
It is all about mindset and belief.
Your friend has ideas and probably already sees himself at the end destination and then asks for guidance as to how to get there, and then everything he needs to achieve his goals and vision materializes for him, including you.
You can be, do, have whatever you want in life.
I’ll leave you with a few of my favorite quotes.
“Everything seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela.
“Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” – Napoleon Hill
If I have not already recommended these books before, you have to get hold of copies of the following books and read them from cover to cover:
Secrets of the Millionaire Mind by T. Harv Eker
Cashflow Quadrant by Robert T. Kiyosaki
You’ll get there.

Hi. I haven’t yet a had a breakthrough like you, I really want to. I came across a saying which goes ‘If you dont build your own business, somebody else will hire you to build his’ That really got to me. I work in Insurance, and I thougth to myself “so all this while I’ve been helping somebody else build his business.” I have a friend who works with me and he has other businesses he’s running. I help him do a lot of stuff. Little stuff you know. I write content for him on his website and do some logos for his business, and the guy just keeps prospering and I can tell you when I compare myself to that guy, I can’t seem to see what really is the difference between us. The guy can’t even write about what his company is, but he just always has these ideas for a new business.

It makes me think a lot about what you are saying here. Some people just grown with that ‘mindset’ you’re talking about. Some people like us need to learn to develop the mindset. I guess I really need to improve myself in that domain. Thanks

Hi Netta,
Thanks for giving me a little more inspiration…every drop of positive feedback helps a person’s feeling of self-worth, even though we should not attach any value or importance to it! 🙂
These are some examples of what I’m doing right now to remain focused on positive energy and thoughts as much of the day as possible:
1. I’ve created a new vision board Jim’s Vision Board
2. Sylvia (my wife) introduced me to an amazing daily routine called The Mental Bank Program – The Mental Bank Program
3. Just recently I started a challenge, along with 130 odd fellow coaches that I work with, to “not complain or blame” for 24 hours, and then keep track. It took me three days before I could make it through one full day without complaining. I don’t tend to complain about people a lot, but i have a short temper when it comes to IT/Computers/Software Programs and the like. I’ve learned over the past few years not to blame anyone for anything that happens to me.
Do you “struggle” with anything on the self development/improvement front…?
Cheers…and Happy Easter if you celebrate!
Yours always, Jim

Hey Jim:

Thanks for your inspirational post. It is a truth that our mindset does determine how we walk in the world and that we can, if we choose, change that mindset and change our walk.

The story you tell as a “work in progress” is most effective, I think. You’re moving yourself in the direction you want to go and that’s a very good thing.

Hi Dorcas,
Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts.
Wealth, regardless of the definition that one attaches to it, and the lack thereof, has been the focus of so much of humanity’s collective energy since humankind took the first step along the wrong path (in my opinion), by comparing themselves to one another. Maybe it was inevitable. The way I see it is that from that time onward, we were all forced to take stock of our “wealth”, and sadly, attach a value to our own “worth”, or measure our own “success” based on how “wealthy” we were at a given point in time.
If I had the choice, I’d probably like to write more about how certain societies have become obsessed by wealth, but in reality, I’m probably not knowledgeable enough to contribute anything of significance to that debate.
What my own personal journey showed me was that there must be many people out there that do genuinely want to create a better future for their family, yet always seem to fail to achieve that goal.
Knowing that their own subconscious could be sabotaging their stated intentions, because of deep-seated beliefs that are working against their ability to create and maintain wealth, might allow them to study what other people have written on the subject, and hopefully, also give them the courage to take action to overcome any negative pattern or cycle that they may have or be experiencing.
And as you have done, I believe talking about the problem helps raise awareness.

Hi jim; I have read through your post and I am glad that you have found a wife who is smart and knew how to steer you away from your what could be considered as an inborn mindset.

You have now won the battle over your ” born come see” ‘enemy’. Mr Poor.

Do you believe that your message on ‘Money and the mind’, will help some of those people who are enslave to a poor mindset, to move forward?

Hi, Miriam
this is great news, the law of attraction works for me all the time. Sometimes better and sometimes I need a bit longer but in general it works quite well.
The visual aspect is a great influence as you can imagine things easier. Have you read the book from Bob Proctor “you are born rich” it is a great book and you can download it for free. http://www.bobproctordownloads.com/BornRichBook.pdf
You have to read it a few times as he is great with words and every time I read it, I can find and understand something new.
Keep me posted on your journey
have a great weekend

I love the Law of Attraction, and I can confirm that the visual aspect of Movies enhances the law of Attraction.
Your mindset movie is great, upon playing it for 3 days now, I just got an unexpected windfall of money. 300 USD returned from a repair shop that looks after our car. Don’t ask me how as I don’t know, we just got the check. Thanks for this great gift.
