I believe that all wealth starts in the mind. If you want to be wealthy, the first thing to do is train your subconscious mind to attract wealth. The way to do this is to create wealthy thoughts in your mind first. Then, second, manifest those thoughts into actions that create a wealthy reality.
If you can learn how to discipline your mind to make the right decisions, money will naturally be attracted to your life. And I am not some manic loon standing on the edge of sanity, dreaming up obscure thoughts to live this way.
For example, I was reading a Forbes article yesterday about self-made millionaires, and the best strategies they use to build wealth. Strategy number 4 was: Change your Mindset about Money. The article went on to say:
“Getting rich begins with the way you think, and what you believe about making money,” writes Steve Siebold in, “How Rich People Think.” The author continues, “The rich eventually figure out training your mind to find solutions to difficult problems is the real secret to making money. The good news is this is possible for anyone who conditions their mind to think this way, and then transforms thought into action.”
It made me feel good, because I realized that I am not the only one who thinks this way. The truth to creating wealth is: First, create thoughts that have immense value in the world. Then, just add action to your thoughts so you can turn those valuable thoughts into reality.
Here is another great quote showing the mind’s dynamic relationship to building wealth. “I don’t fix my problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves.” (Louis L. Hay)
Here are Four Tips to Help You Attract Money With Your Subconscious Mind:
Wealth is in the Mind Secret #1: Become a Master of Yourself
If you want to create wealth, your most important job should be figuring yourself out:
Nobody should be better at making you perform than you.
Stop seeing your job as your most important role in life. Your job is NOT who you are. Your job exists so you can make money to help you find yourself. Your job title should be there to compliment the journey to learn who you are, not to define who you are.
Start seeing your life as your most important job. Go on a mission to learn who you really are and challenge yourself with these vital questions on a daily basis: Who am I? Why am I here? What makes me sad? What makes me feel alive? What motivates me to waste money? What motivates me to save money?
Becoming aware of you are, and who you want to be, is the first step to mastering your life.
Stop for a second. Look around your life. Your present life is the training grounds to help you become who you’re supposed to become. What are you supposed to be doing right now? Now add action to that thought and start doing those things! This is how you become a warrior in your life. You should want to become a warrior, because warriors are the special people who achieve their dreams.
God is using this moment to prepare you for the next journey you’re supposed to go on in life. Start thinking deeply at all times about who, why, what, and how you’re here. Look for clues as to what you were made on earth to do. Mastering yourself is the first step to master everything else in your life.
Wealth is in the Mind Secret #2: Master Your Environment
Once you start mastering yourself, shift your attention to your external environments you live in and start mastering those to. Ask yourself this question: Are your external environments helping you find the life you’re searching for? Or are they holding you back?
Successful people don’t succeed in life on their own. They succeed because they have teams of friends that help them achieve their goals. Wealthy people are always asking themselves: Am I immersed in one-of-a-kind environments that will naturally push me toward my goals and dreams? Or are my environments hurting my chances to reach my dreams in life?
If you’re stuck in terrible environments, and you’re unwilling to change, just accept the fact that you’re probably screwed and you will not succeed in life. Hopefully that blunt truth is motivation for you to get up and start finding better environments that will help you to succeed.
A huge tip to building wealth: Always be willing to exchange your present day comfort, for the opportunity to work for a better future. You can do it. Anyone can. But you’re going to have to be able to take the short-term pain of change in order to change the future of your life.
Here’s another piece of motivation for you: You are going to die one day. Every day you are inching closer toward death and you will never have another chance at being alive again. You’re either going to accomplish your dreams, or you’re not. Give up the addiction of comfort for the effort it will take to grind your dreams into reality.
Wealth is in the Mind: Secret #3: Stop Waiting. Start Solving Problems.
I believe one of the biggest problems in American society today is that everyone is waiting for someone else to tell them what to do with their lives.
I think this is the reason few Americans find contentment and wealth during their career journeys. The mass American population is waiting for someone else to tell them what to do, rather than listening to their souls, and going on an adventure to find the solutions to their problems on their own.
This problem probably stems from the way most of us grew up in our public school system. Think about it.
Public school is 12 straight years where we’re trained to do what we’re told. We go to school and wait for our teachers to tell us what to do. Then we go to work, and wait for our bosses to tell us what to do. We get so trained to subconsciously wait for everyone else to tell us what to do, that we stop taking action to live out what our souls want us to do with our lives.
Break free from this linear, controlled way of thinking if you want to train your subconscious mind to attract wealth. You can do this by taking passionate ownership over the parts of life you love, and rebelling against the parts of life your soul hates. Listen to your soul to find out the parts of life you love, and then go out and create opportunities for yourself to do more of that!
Contract everything else out if you need to. Stop waiting for everyone else to show you the way! Become a leader, and take risks to live the life you dream about!
Re-wire everything you’ve been told and be confident doing the things you want to do. This is how you become a leader. Stop paying attention to everyone else. Isolate each problem you have and then go on a mission to fix each one. If you can do this, wealth, happiness, and independence can be yours.
Wealth is in the Mind: Secret #4 = Money Buys Freedom. Purpose Creates Wealth.
There is a large population of “rich” people out there who have a ton of money, but only a tiny bit of happiness. I’ll tell you right now: This is not the life you want.
You want a life where your money, purpose, and talent groove together in a dance of harmony on a daily basis. This is how people become really cool, original, and fun to be around. This is how they also train their subconscious to attract money with their minds. Add a couple of frugal life tips, and knowledge on how to spend money wisely, and you can begin creating your own unique style of wealth no matter how much money you make.
Then, once you have enough money to no longer have to worry about money, begin your greatest adventure of all: Go on a mission to find your purpose in life.
Imagine your purpose in life as another human being who is searching for you. But when you become lazy, your purpose also becomes lazy and stops searching to find you. When you stop being aware, your purpose also stops being aware. When you give up, your purpose also gives up.
But your purpose becomes energized, when you become energized. Your purpose moves faster when you move faster toward your goals. Your purpose will find you, when you find yourself. Devote your life to mastering yourself first. Improving your environments second. And solving the problems in your life third, and you will naturally find your purpose in life.This is how you train your subconscious mind to attract wealth, and these are the steps you must take to begin to build wealth.

Excellent advice! You are 100% correct that wealth starts in the mind. It’s such a complicated subject that you could dedicate an entire blog to it.
My husband and I teach life skills classes to people in poverty. One of the topics is budgeting. And I will confirm that the number one thing that keeps people poor is how they think and FEEL about money.
Have you read anything by Rabbi Daniel Lapin? Though Shall Prosper and Business Secrets of the Bible dive deeper into this topic.
Great article! And I love the story from Matthew you shared in the newsletter.
Happy Wealth Building!
Great Holly! Thank you for stopping in. You are so right about wealth starting in the mind, and I think we’re doing exactly what you recommended, and dedicating our entire blog to this subject because we’re so passionate about it. When I started on this journey to find myself, and my purpose in life, I really never thought about finding wealth. Building wealth, for me, was just a natural and cool byproduct that was created once I started to master wise decision making! And wealth was a nice by product to be creating!

Also, I’m glad you liked the Matthew scripture. That’s sort of our motto here, and where we got our name Wealth Well Done. Here is the scripture from Matthew 25:21: “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!”
Our major goal is to inspire people to do the small things right, as the small things lead to big things. Mastering the small things in life truly is the path to wealth because by using the small things as steps, it’s the only way to climb to accomplish the big things in life. Also, I love your final statement, “Happy Wealth Building!” Is it Ok, if I use that in the future? I love that and it totally sums up my optimistic, excited attitude!
Go for it! ??
I really like the idea of taking action instead of waiting for things. I’ve experienced this myself. I like to think of it like gardening. I’m planting seeds right now by doing little things, but I know if I keep nurturing them, they’ll grow into something even better. 🙂
Hey Mrs. Picky Pincher! I love how you compared growing money with gardening, as it’s something I do all the time. One of the way gardening has inspired me to think about money is from how I grow Tomato plants in the summer. I love to grow so many of them, and then when they start producing tomatoes, I eat as many as I can, and then I love to give the rest away to friends. This process has inspired to see money in the same way. I love to build it, let it compound, and then when I have more than enough for my needs, give it away to people who could use it more than me. Thanks!
Hey Bill great article, I love that quote “I don’t fix my problems. I fix my thinking. Then problems fix themselves.” That’s so true. Once I started working on my thinking it’s like all the stress and drama went out of my life as I was in line with what I actually wanted. It’s like floating along with the current rather than battling upstream. Anyway thanks again 🙂
