There are certain laws which govern the process of acquiring riches, and once these laws are learned and obeyed by anyone, that person will get rich with mathematical certainty. [Wallace D. Wattles, Author of The Science of Getting Rich] 2J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 3. There is a secret psychology to money. Most people dont know about it. Thats why most people never become financially successful. A lack of money is not the problem; it is merely a symptom of whats going on inside you. [T. Harv Eker.

Finally, you have to be willing to pay the price to get it with disciplines effort and perseverance over time. 3J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 4. Identify your limiting beliefs about money. To become wealthy, youll need to surface, identify, root out, and replace any negative or limiting beliefs you may have about money. Messages from early childhood can actually sabotage and dilute your later financial success, because they subconsciously emit a vibration thats contrary to your conscious intentions. 4J.

If I become wealthy, I will be a burden You must begin to understand, therefore, that the present state of your bank account, your sales, your health, your social life, your position at work, etc., is nothing more than the physical manifestation of your previous thinking. If you sincerely wish to change or improve your results in the physical world, you must change your thoughts, and you must change them IMMEDIATELY. [Bob Proctor. Author of The Power to Have It All] 5J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 6. Three steps to turn around you limiting beliefs about money. 1. Write down your limiting beliefs.

All you have to do is let yourself fully experience the accompanying feeling and then release it. just take yourself through this little process whenever a negative or limiting belief or feeling about money comes up. What am I feeling right now? Could I welcome and allow it? Could I let it go? Would I let it go? When? 8J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 9. Visualize what you want as if you already have it. See all your financial goals as already accomplished. See images that affirm your desired level of income such as paychecks, rent checks, royalty checks, dividend statements, and people handing you cash. See images of your ideal bank statements, stock reports, and real estate portfolios. See images of the things you would be able to buy, do, and contribute to if you have already met all of your financial goals. Finally, remember to add in the feeling of appreciation and gratitude for already having these things. 9J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 10. If you dont put a value on money and seek wealth, you most probably wont receive it. You must seek wealth for it to seek you.

Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 16. The Empowered Wealth Quadrants (by Lee Brower). Human and intellectual assets have been chosen by wealthy families with priority if they could choose only 2 of the 4 quadrants. They know, that if their children have those, they can always make more money. If they only have the money assets (and not the other two) , they will ultimately loose the money. I invite you to start thinking about how to build and optimize your assets in all four sectors of the Empowered Wealth Quadrants. If you do, then you will create real wealth in a balanced and integrated way and you will keep money in its proper perspective. It is just a tool to be used for higher purposes. 16J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 17. You have a divine right to abundance, and if you are anything less than a millionaire, you havent had your fair share. [Stuart Wilde. Author of The Trick to Money Is Having Some!] A part of all you earn must be yours to keep. Put aside at least 10% of your earnings and make that money inaccessible for expenses. See this amount built over time and, in turn, it starts earning money on its own. Over an even longer time, it would grow into a lot, because of the power of compound interest. 17J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 18. Build your fortunes by paying you first Your fortune must initially be built on the solid bedrock of a long-term investment plan. The earlier you start, the more quickly you can build your safety net of million dollars. Sit down with a financial planner, or go to one of the sites on the Internet where you can enter the amount of your current net worth and your financial goals for retirement, and then calculate how much you need to save and invest from this point forward to make your goal amount by the time you retire. 18J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 19. The idea of compound interest Time is your friend when it comes to compound interest. The sooner you start saving, the greater the result the longer you have for compounding interest. Make saving and investing a priority Invest just 10% or 15% of your income, then live on what is left. It will (1) force you to start building your fortune and (2) if you still want to buy more or do more, it will force you to find ways to earn more money to afford it. Never dip into your savings to fund your bigger lifestyle. You want your investment to grow to be truly financially independent. 19J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 20. The 50/50 Law Never spend more than you save. Put 50% of every dollar you earn into saving. The key is that you dont raise your lifestyle until youve earned the right to raise it by putting the same amount into savings. It is a core strategy for building wealth. Millionaire doesnt mean celebrity The truth is that 99% of millionaires are hardworking, methodical savers and investors. They make their fortune in one of three ways: (1) from entrepreneurship (75%); (2)as an executive at a major corporation (10%); or as a (3) professional practitioner (doctor, lawyer, dentist, certified public accountant, architect) (10%); (4) through sales and sales consulting (5%) 20J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 21. Most of U.S. millionaires are regular folks who worked hard, lived within their budgets, saved 10% to 20% of all their income, and invested it back into their business, real estate, and the stock market. Learn the discipline of saving and investing and start early enough. How to become an automatic Millionaire The simplest way to implement the pay yourself first plan is to have a plan that is totally automatic Set up a percentage of your paycheck which is automatically deducted and invested as you direct it. You wont have to exercise self-discipline, it doesnt depend on your mood swings, household emergencies Make a commitment once and its a done deal. 21J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 22. Build assets rather than liabilities Rule One. You must know the difference between an asset and a liability and buy assets. An asset is something that puts money in your pocket. A liability is something that takes money out of your pocket. [Robert T. Kiyosaki. Coauthor of Rich Dad, Poor Dad] Take a look at how wealthy people approach their investments. They take the money they earn and invest a large portion of it in income-producing assets real estate, small business, stocks, bonds, gold, and so on: Your income: 20% assets &amp; multiple streams of income, 80% expenses &amp; liabilities Goal: build more assets &amp; multiple streams of income Eventually, you can live off the income from your assets and your multiple streams of income. Thats true financial freedom 22J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 23.

Too many people spend money they havent earned, to buy things they dont want, to impress people they dont like. [Will Rogers. Actor, and writer] Spend less money Spending too much can wreck havoc with your financial goal. It keeps you in dept, prevents you from saving as much as you could, and turns your focus to consumption, rather than to wealth creation and accumulation Gather it all together in one place you spent money on last year but didnt use in the last year. Then add up the price you paid for each and every item. You probably never really needed all those things in the first place. The total will be more than your current dept. 24J. Canfield 2005: The Success Principles </li><li> 25. Start paying cash It makes you think about what you are buying. Every potential purchase will be considered more carefully, necessary incidentals will become less necessary, and large purchases will probably be put off. Reduce the cost of your rich lifestyle Live the lifestyle you want yet pay a whole less for it. Make a few simple changes in the way you spend and buy. Sit at the balcony in the opera house, buy your convertible in January, buy designer fashion at the consignment store, ask for discounts, call four or five vendors and take bids for the same identical items, or shop at ultra-budget stores. 25J.
