Don’t work for money—let money work for you.
Once you remove the emotions of fear and desire in the first two steps of this action, you will be able to successfully complete steps 3 and 4. However, keep in mind that you absolutely must complete the later steps of this action with no emotional charge.
Remember, if you want to be rich, a job is only a short-term solution to a long-term problem. It will help you pay the bills this month, but if you want to have money in the long-term, you must change the entire way that you view money and make it work for you instead of you working for it.
When you remove your emotions from the picture and take a cold, hard look at your job, you may realize that you are just wasting your time and that you could be working in a more efficient manner to make a lot more money.
Remove your fear of not having money.
Tell yourself that if you work to make more money, you will never be rich. Instead, you will work long hours for low pay and you will be stressed and unhappy. Remind yourself of this, and force your mind to not be fearful about not having money.
Remove your desire to have more money.
Recognize that the joy money brings is short-lived, and you will soon need more money to experience that joy again. If you keep working to make more money, you will never have enough. Remind yourself of this, and force your mind to remove the emotion of desire when it comes to money.
Choose your thoughts with clarity.
Take the time to ask yourself questions about your job and the way you make money. A good question is, “Is there a better way?” Answer yourself truthfully—even if the truth hurts.
Use your imagination and creativity to identify an opportunity to make money.
Instead of grinding away down in the dirt, think out of the box to come up with a business plan that you can use to make money. Aim to hold a managerial role so that you will keep making money even when you aren’t physically present at the job.
