Ask yourself this question: Do I have an “occupational or industrial age” mindset. This can be characterized by minimizing, restricting and living within your means. Or are you in the “entrepreneurial” mindset, which is characterized by expanding, creating and generating wealth.
If you’re an occupational thinker; don’t fret. There’s nothing wrong with that. It’s how we were raised. Many of us were raised in the post-Great Depression era where we learned from our parents, teachers and those around us that getting a job and working hard would get us the American dream. It would be a secure future and we’d survive. This industrial way of thinking made sense back then since it got us out of that first depression. BUT times have changed. Although it may not be completely outdated to think like that and tie yourself to extremely limiting behaviors and conversation about wealth. It’s no longer serving us.
However, if you’re an entrepreneurial thinker, your mind is open to wealth-building, it readily accepts new challenges, and meets opportunity at the door. You take risks, you self-start, you’re visionary, you’re outside of the box, you demonstrate agility, you’re innovative, you’re resourceful and you’re poised for much more and far greater.
So…what conversation are you having around money and wealth? Business or career? Moving or standing still?
Right now, the work world is having this conversation. Men and women across the world are challenging themselves into a new mindset. What about you? Since March of 2020, US workers have quit their jobs more than any other time since they began recording labor statistics. Although COVID pushed many; many more made a different decision stemming from the internal question that only you can answer for yourself. Am I going to build wealth for them or will I build this wealth for my own family? You get to choose.
This is just a conversation starter about the future. Do you have a plan for it or are you letting someone else plan it for you? I’d like to know. Share thoughts.
Always- To Your Success,
