As a life business coach, I have coached and helped more than 750 professionals.
One of the things I learned is that successful people think they are already successful. The fact you are reading this post means you have the success mindset; you have the wealth mindset. And I will take it a step further: you are already wealthy. Being wealthy is a mindset. Financially you might not be where you want to be yet, but being wealthy is a mindset. You feel wealthy, you will be financially independent, and have the things you want to have for financial freedom.
Another key characteristic of wealthy people is that they are passionate about growth and learning. The fact that you are reading this post, means you love to grow yourself; you love to learn. And we have that in common already. We both love to learn; we both love to grow. And me, knowing that I am writing this post now, and you are reading this, make me connected to you. It means we have things in common.
