Do you have the right mindset to attract wealth and prosperity into your life?
There's no shortage of gurus out there who would have you believe that this is an important question. Who would tell you that if you're currently broke and struggling financially, it might be because of your mindset, because of limiting beliefs, perhaps because of misaligned chakras, even.
As you can imagine, I've got a slightly different take on the topic...
Mindset vs. Doing the Work
There may be some merit to mindset around money. Perhaps you can even be in a situation in which you're self-sabotaging - preventing yourself from making more money because of some underlying beliefs, for example.
...if you want to change something about your financial situation, your mindset and beliefs are not the best lever at your disposal.
In the video, I tell the story of one of my friends, who has always been a guy who makes things happen. Someone who has amazing work ethic and no lack of ambition, either. For him, indeed the missing ingredient may be some mindset (but mostly strategy) around how he makes money and manages finances.
For most people the problem is inverse: they're not making stuff happen. They're not creating value, not doing the work. Or if they're trying to do the work, they're not doing it productively enough.
If you're doing the work and creating the value, getting paid for that value is a small problem to solve. If you're only working on your mindset and limiting beliefs, but not doing the work, nothing will change.
This video was partially inspired by the Fake Guru series on the Coffeezilla channel. I highly recommend you give it a look. Especially if you're susceptible to the charms of the various sales, business, motivation and money gurus out there. And don't feel bad if you are someone who gets captivated by guru messages. They are good at what they do. Having a light shone on what really goes on behind the scenes may be exactly the medicine you need, to get untangled from a guru's web.
