Everyone wants to live a rich life but not everyone has a chance to live one. Fortunately, though, we have developed a false belief about rich people. Many of us believe that being rich means having a beautiful bungalow, a big car, wearing branded clothes and going to foreign holidays. But as the times have changes, definition of rich has also changed. These days, being rich means rich with your mind. You have to believe you are rich. It’s just a state of mind. And if you believe it wholeheartedly, you will surely come up with ways to live like a rich without compromising your current lifestyle. Here’s how.
1. Start investing early:
Almost every rich on this earth has invested their money early or wisely. But for better advantage, you have to invest early and wisely too. That’s how compounding works. The earlier you start, more saving grows and you are able to enjoy the luxuries of rich.
2. Invest in experiences rather than possessions:
Gone are the days when people used to judge each other by the things they possess. In today’s world, people don’t care what others think of them. They just want to spend their money on travel and experiencing this world rather than buying things and staying at same place. This way, you also add new experiences and contacts to your life which can lead to new opportunities.
3. Read books:
Rich people are rich because they have some knowledge which others don’t and they use that knowledge to their advantage. Books bring experiences of other people and their mistakes to your life which helps you widen your knowledge and wisdom. When you use that knowledge, you are ahead of all the people who are ignorant of that knowledge.
4. No mediocre thoughts please.
Rich people think thought that make them take action like no one else. And where does the confidence to take that action come from? Their thoughts. They think big. And that’s why they success. That’s the reason they are rich.
5. Visit places (any) rather than sitting at home.
We usually make a habit to be at home when we are free and watch TV. Rich people gather experiences, make new contacts and visit places. You never know when you might strike a chord with someone influential, get that aha moment or discover a breakthrough idea by being outside.
6. Talk or watch how rich people act.
Your surroundings matter. The way you behave matters. Observe how rich people behave and try to have an attitude of richness in your behaviour. Be careful to stay away from ego. When you constantly practise being rich, you actually start feeling like you are one.
7. Stop hanging around negative people.
Rich people are rich because they are super positive. They don’t fear failure. They fear not trying. Negative people drain the energy out of you. You need that energy to bring richness in your life. Stay away from them.
8. Always find the best deals and discounts by negotiation.
Art of negotiation is the best thing you can be expert in if you want to be. Many deals have been made which have made people rich because they were negotiated very well. Also, try to find coupons for restaurant and travelling. You’ll live like a rich with a small budget.
9. Take imperfect action and do things that you fear most.
When you wait for long to take action, you will never act. But when you take imperfect action, you learn along the way and that’s how all the rich people in the world have learned. In fact, that’s the only way to learn. You never learn just by reading.
10. Be grateful.
Above all else, be grateful. You want to be rich because you want to live like someone you admire. But there are many who want to be like you. Slow down for a moment and admire all the things you have.
Because rich is a state of mind.
