It’s easy to dwell on all the reasons you’ll never be a millionaire. This could go wrong. That could happen. It’s too competitive. I don’t deserve it. I suck butt at sales. My parents programmed me to be poor. Just don’t have the time. And so on. Right?
Of course, these negative thoughts poison productivity, causing a self-fulfilling prophecy.
But I’ve got the antidote – a simple exercise to fight back against self-sabotage. Ready for it?
Grab a pen and paper. Go somewhere quiet. Close the laptop. Turn your phone off. Breathe deep and think about all of your skills, talents, abilities, and accomplishments.
Now at the top of your paper, write: “Why I’ll Be A Millionaire,” then start listing everything that came to mind. Push yourself to find as much positive proof as possible. You should be left with an entire page of evidence that you’re an amazing, capable, deserving millionaire in the making.
For extra credit, take a second sheet of paper and edit, organize, and polish your notes into a final copy.
Now read it to yourself. Now read it out loud. Now pet it like a little puppy. Now give it a kiss. Now fold it up and put it in your purse or wallet and carry it around with you all day, every day.
Then take it out and study it as often as possible. Like you’re prepping for the most important exam of your life. (In many ways, you are.)
Sounds strange, I know.
But this is the most practical way to build confidence – by providing a body of supportive facts to fling mud in doubt’s face.
Does this really work? Absolutely. But like any exercise, for best results, you have to do it daily. And it wouldn’t hurt to combine it with these other 7-figure habits too.
