What if the people around you have a Bad Money Mindset?

What if the people around you have a Bad Money Mindset?

What if you are positively changing your money mindset, but the people around you project their negative money mindset on you?

What if you are developing a good money mindset and you really feel that you are going through a change, but the people around you are holding you back?

It can be about your partner, your parents, friends or other people in your area who thwart your money mindset. You are developing a positive mindset and your environment makes it more difficult for you this way.

It really sucks when that happens, but don’t worry. I have some tips for you on how to overcome this blockade and how to protect and shield yourself from the negative energy about money from your environment.

1. Take responsibility for your own money mindset.

First, you will have to take your own responsibility when it comes to your money mindset. You don’t let anyone make his or her nonsense about money your nonsense. Don’t let that person’s mindset affect your mindset. Be constantly aware of that.

Also, don’t expect your mindset about money to be someone else’s mindset. You will always get people on your path who supposedly know better than you. Let them think well and continue at your own pace with what you are doing.

This will be nothing again ..

You’re not going to make money with that …

The website is not really running either…

You don’t sell much right…

These are a few comments that may sounds familiar to you.

Someone quickly said to me when I started selling through an online store: You don’t sell that much, do you?

They are real death eaters.

Point 1. They’ve never had succes before, so how can they know better than you? Not so!

And secondly, people think that you have to set up a large company in a very short time. They don’t see that it takes time to grow.

An advice for you is that you should never take advice from someone who has not yet achieved what you want to achieve. They think they know so well, but all they do for you is to brake you. The intention is often good, they want to protect you from a big mistake. They themselves take little or no risks in life and then project this onto you.

You will always see that these people come your way when you are actively doing something. Suppose you are involved in an online business and you have every confidence in it. There will always be people who post a comment that might make you think it won’t work.

Nothing could be further from the truth, you will succeed. And at your own pace.

So know that only you are responsible for your money mindset and that you cannot blame others for this. It’s their beliefs and you can’t get them off and you shouldn’t want to. So focus on your own money mindset!

2. Tell your environment how you feel.

Secondly, if it is necessary, because they insist on their beliefs, you can tell them. Tell them what you think and what you are doing. Some people are open to it and others are not. Don’t force it, because everyone has their own beliefs.

Certainly when it comes to your partner, you cannot avoid discussing it. You are dealing with each other and it is nice if you share your life with someone that you are also aligned in the field of money.

3. Upgrade the people around you.

Tip number 3 is to upgrade the people around you. This is not to say that you will drastically banish everyone from your life and kick your partner out the door. You can just keep interacting with the people you love.

By upgrading I mean that you will share your money mindset with the people around you and that you will surround yourself with people who already have a good money mindset. Keep it in balance I would say.

Don’t expect to be able to change the people around you just like that. You will see if you have some patience that at some point they will come to you with questions when they see that you are going to achieve results.

I started my webshop with selling via a platform like Amazon. At first my environment saw nothing in this. After less than two months, my son’s response was: NICE… when I shared my results. Now he has also become a webshop seller.

People will naturally come up with questions if you give them time. They come by themselves.

You can also look up like-minded people. There are many ambitious female entrepreneurs who share the same mindset with you. Look them up through mastermind groups, at events and do courses. You automatically meet people who suit you and with whom you can talk about money at the same level. I myself am in several private groups with like minded people. We have the same ambition and want to achieve the same. Most importantly, we have the same mindset. We all want to grow and make a lot of money.

These mastermind groups are very valuable. I really advise you to surround yourself with these people. Also try to find people who have already accomplished a lot, find mentors and coaches who have experience. These are people who can be of value to you when it comes to the right mindset.

4. Do not seek feedback about your business or money from the wrong people.

Number four can be a difficult one. Don’t get your information and feedback from the wrong people. I can’t say it often enough, if you tell your parents or partner about your company you get criticism that you can’t do anything with. You don’t get the response you need and they give you unsolicited advice. If they project this conviction on you, you are scruwed.

Before you know it you will be behind and you can start taking steps again. They do not know your company, your marketing and often have no idea what you are talking about. Or even worse, they think they know and before you know it they tell you how to proceed or whether to stop, because it doesn’t work anyway.

So, the group of people I talked about in the previous point, the people who have experience and are in the same mood, are the people where you get your information, ask you questions and take advice. They are qualified and at the same level as you. In this case, try to separate these people.

It may not sound very friendly, but your partner is your partner, not your mastermind buddy.

I always say with one you do this and with the other you do that!

Do you have any tips yourself to change the money mindset of your environment or how you can best deal with it?

Let’s talk about feeling rich when in fact you’re not.

Let’s talk about feeling rich when in fact you’re not.

Let’s talk about how you can feel richer than you really are. Only experiencing the feeling of being rich is already great.

It’s an exercise with a great feeling I can tell you from experience and it really has a positive effect on several things.

It’s really important to experience the feeling, because you are often richer than you think.

You may find yourself in a situation where you no longer know how to make ends meet, but by giving some things a positive twist you will naturally feel better.

You are also going to manifest positive things around you. That’s how it really works! In fact, you can ensure that you attract fewer bills and that your situation doesn’t gets worse.

So let’s talk about feeling rich when in fact you’re not.

Make a list.

We often feel that we’re poor, that we’re in a bad financial position, while the situation may not be so bad at all. At a given moment we only see the lesser things in our lives. I can talk about it, I was very negative about my finances and my life. And you know, if you keep thinking that way, the situation will stay that way.

So it’s time to change that. Of course I’m not going to romanticize it all, but you can do something to make yourself feel better.

You’re going to make a list of all the things in your life that make you feel good. Maybe you can already write things down that will give you a rich feeling. Call it your rich list.

For example: You have a roof over your head, a nice relationship and you are healthy. These are of course things that will make you happy.

Beyond these things, take a good look at what makes you happy that you already have in your life. Also think of small things. This list will immediately give you a good feeling and maybe this list will remind you that you may not be so bad and that the problems may not be as great as they sometimes seem.

Change your mind.

How you feel or think about something can have an effect on its consequences. As long as you think you are poor and you only get bills, then the bills keep coming in.

Do you notice that when you are desperate and want more customers for your company, they will stay away? If you concentrate on more abundance and you feel good about your company, the customers will come naturally. You have faith in it and your customers feel it.

So turn your negative thoughts into positive thoughts and experience that this will have a positive effect on your personal finances, your company, but certainly on your own life.

Take action.

Now that you’ve turned your mind around, it’s time for action.

Start with yourself first. What makes you happy? What gives you a rich feeling?

Start with small things, such as drying yourself with a large towel instead of a small one. Grab that jar of hair mask that you still have somewhere and then rub in with delicious body lotion and get that parfum that you would otherwise only take on special occasions. Put on your best clothes. You do not only have to wear this if you have a party. You don’t have to have a party to spoil yourself.

Take your nicest plates and cups from the cupboard and set the table neatly and cook something special. It may sound strange, but it really has a positive effect on your feeling. You really feel rich for a while.

In any case, do something that suits you and gives you a rich feeling. It really helps to give you that feeling and it has a positive effect if you do this regularly.

Do something different every time. And you know, it doesn’t cost you anything.

Also make a list of things you can do in your company that will allow you to earn money in the short term. Schedule this and take action. Call a number of potential customers that you expect to make a purchase from you. If you still receive money from customers, go here now.

In any case, do something that will earn you money. It doesn’t have to be a big promotion.

You understand that for all this the first step is the most important and that is to convert your negative thoughts into positive thoughts. You achieve so much with this. If you have negative thoughts and you do not believe in your product or service, you will not sell it either. Customers feel that and are not convinced if you are not positive.

Also realize that people often continue to do the same things as they get richer. Suppose you say that you are going to buy a bunch of flowers every week if you are richer. Try to do that for yourself now. Often things that people push forward, because they only allow themselves to be richer, are not really big, expensive things at all. Try to think about that and see what you can give yourself now, which does not cost you so much, but makes you happy.

What will you do to make yourself feel richer? How will you ensure that you feel less poor?  

Have a great day!

Good luck!
