Question #1: Do I have a positive money mindset?
Your money mindset is how you think about money and relate to it. Our mindset is key because it’s the precursor to our behavior. None of your actions or behaviors happen in a vacuum—they always spring from your thoughts or mindset.
I want you to be real with yourself. Own up to whether your thoughts about money support you and move you in a positive direction every day, or are holding you back and sabotaging your ability to get ahead.
If you think that you’re at a disadvantage because you started learning about money late in life, didn’t go to college, or don’t have the career you really want, it’s time to leave those negative, false beliefs in the dust.
It doesn’t matter if you’re working an entry level job or are a highly-paid CEO, your money mindset is the key to whether you build lasting wealth or not. Your ability to grow rich doesn’t depend on your education or earning power.
