Did you know that a majority of wealthy people spend at least 30 minutes a day reading? Now, that could mean listening to an audiobook or podcast, but the point is that they’re taking time every day or just about every day to make a deposit or invest in their mindset.
If you’re really serious about aligning yourself with wealth, then you must begin with your mindset. This means your thoughts and your emotions surrounding yourself, money, success, wealth, business, life, and more. The thing about the mind is it’s always thinking about something. Even when you’re not consciously thinking, your subconscious is busy thinking about something.
Have a conversation with the wealthy and most will tell you that a large reason for their success was their mindset. They wouldn’t have it any other way than to be wealthy, and they knew that devouring some of the best literature and lessons out there would help them line up with their goals.
