It is the billionaire mindset that makes the billionaires different from others.
It is not just their “Money”.
Indeed, money is the last thing which is different between ordinary people and the billionaires.
When you think money is the only thing which is different, it means if you take a billionaire’s money and wealth, then he will be someone like you.
In order to become a billionaire, you will have to have so many characteristics.
Money is the byproduct of the characteristics that a billionaire has.
So, when I say “billionaires”, I am not talking about their wealth.
I am talking about their mentality and characteristics, or I’d better to say their mindset.
Maybe you say you don’t want to become a billionaire, or even a millionaire, and you just want to have a happy life.
This is also good.
I don’t say that having lots of money makes you happy and prosperous.
It is not the money that makes a great life for you.
But it is the mentality and the mindset that makes you happy and prosperous.
Maybe money has never been your main goal in your life.
But having a billionaire mindset is what you should get at whatever it takes, even if you don’t want to become a billionaire.
Because it is something that makes you different from others.
It makes the world look different to you.
Even if you don’t want to become a millionaire or billionaire, it is great to have the personality and mentality of a millionaire or billionaire.
If so, you will enjoy your life more, even if you don’t make any money, or you give away all the money you make.
What Is the Billionaire Mindset?
Would you like to know how billionaires look at the world, and how they think and decide?
You will enjoy your life more, and you will have less problems, if you copy these people.
Money also comes if you learn how to think and act like a billionaire.
Here is the 14 important factors of the billionaire mindset:
- Thinking Deeply and Deciding Wisely
- Learning from Their Mistakes
- Associating with Successful and Positive People
- Being Aware That You Don’t Know Everything
- Saving Your Money and Making More Money from It
- Being Super-Active
- Having Big Goals
- Dividing the Big Projects into Small Stages
- Programing Your Minds Toward Success
- Forecasting the Obstacles and Problems
- Looking at the Problems as Opportunities
- Having Faith on Themselves and Their Abilities
- Never Give Up
1. Billionaires Think Deeply and Decide Wisely
Making a proper decision is one of the most important part of having a billionaire mindset.
Maybe, many of the billionaires have learned this after making several mistakes.
The smartest ones learn this from the others’ experiences.
You can save lots of time, if you don’t experience yourself, and use the others experiences.
The wise learns from the others’ mistakes; the fool learns from his own… if he learns at all.
How do you make the important decisions?
Do you think enough?
Do you consult with those who have experiences in the same subject?
Or, you are among those who don’t pay any attention to the others’ knowledge and experience, and you do whatever you decide without thinking and analyzing properly?
It is very easy to have a billionaire mindset about this.
Do it and eliminate one of the differences you have with the billionaires.
Make wise decisions, and shorten the distance between yourself and the intelligent wealthy people.
It is very easy.
Don’t decide quickly.
Whenever you want to do something, think twice and ask for the others’ opinion, and then do it.
After a while, you will get used to making wise decisions.
It becomes a habit, and it takes you one step closer to the billionaire mindset.
Keep in mind that two groups are miserable: (1) those who don’t listen to anybody, and (2) those who listen to everybody.
2. Billionaires Learn from Their Mistakes
Everybody makes mistakes, but most people repeat the same mistakes over and over, and expect different results. This is insane.
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” — Albert Einstein
Billionaires make mistakes too, but the difference is, whenever they make a mistake, they sit, analyze and learn the lessons.
Therefore, they not only won’t make the same mistake again, and so, they save lots of time and money, but also, in the other things they want to do, they use the lessons they have learned.
As a human-being, you also make mistakes.
But the question is whether you learn from your mistakes, and you don’t repeat them again, or you repeat the same mistakes every now and then.
Don’t blame yourself when you make a mistake.
Instead, learn the lessons properly.
Mistakes are opportunities to become more knowledgeable and experienced.
They are not to blame yourself.
In each stage of your life and business, you make some mistakes, you learn the lessons, and you advance to a higher level.
Then you will make some mistakes again… and this process has to be continued to make you better and better gradually.
However, you should learn from your inevitable mistakes, otherwise you will remain the same person forever.
The way to success has so many ups and downs.
In every step, your mistakes show you the way.
They guide you toward the right way that ends to success.
So, learn the lessons each time you make a mistake.
This is an important part of having a billionaire mindset.
3. Billionaires Associate with Successful and Positive People
Billionaires are always in touch with successful people who have positive minds and give positive energy to others.
Even if they are not in touch with these people directly, they read, hear, think and write about them a lot.
They read the success story of the successful people, and this causes them to attract the energy they need to move toward success.
It also helps them to build the same billionaire mindset that those successful people have in their minds.
“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” — Jim Rohn
According to the above quote, if you spend your time with losers, then, the same problems, mistakes, bad events, and the same destiny they had, will show up in your life somehow.
This is so true.
If you walk toward sun, you will be in light.
If you take the opposite direction, you will head to the darkness.
Make your life and your mind busy with successful and positive people.
Avoid losers and those who focus on negativity.
If you like to help the poor, choose those who will use your money and support, to become successful and useful, not those who avoid working and effort.
Spread the positive energy you take from the positive people, and you will have more positive energy every second.
Associate with positive and successful people, and get one more step closer to having a billionaire mindset.
4. Billionaires Are Aware That They Don’t Know Everything
Have you noted that the more stupid a person is, the more he thinks he knows more than the others?
He believes he knows everything, and anything he says is correct.
He talks more than everybody and claims he can manage the world.
But when you ask him why such a talented person is so poor and failed, he answers, “bad luck!” 😀
Billionaires have a different mentality.
While they think they can do everything they decide, and everything is possible for them, they believe they don’t know everything and they have to educate themselves and learn all the time, and ask for the experts’ opinions.
They believe in teamwork, because they know that they can’t do everything alone.
Unsuccessful people talk a lot, but they don’t take any actions, whereas, successful people spend their time on working and doing positive things.
Instead of talking, those who want to become successful, have to start learning, experiencing and taking proper actions toward their goals.
They have to learn to take risks when necessary.
This is the big difference of billionaires with losers.
Billionaires take actions and are not afraid of taking risks, whereas losers only talk, but they are afraid of taking actions and risks.
What is the result?
While billionaires take so many steps toward becoming more successful, losers keep talking and remain at the same level, if not going lower.
So, stop talking.
“Work hard in silence, let your success be your noise.” — Frank Ocean.
Start learning and acting.
If so, you will be one more step closer to the billionaires’ way of thinking, behavior and their billionaire mindset.
5. Billionaires Save Their Money and Make More Money from It
The rich get richer.
Although they have to handle losses sometimes.
But they not only take care of their hard-earned money, they also hedge and secure it, and make more money from their money.
They also know how and when to take risks and make more money.
Unlike billionaires, mediocre and poor people are used to spend a lot.
They don’t spend their money to make more money and secure their wealth.
They waste it so easily.
You have to learn how to manage your wealth.
It doesn’t matter if you have a low income now.
Work toward increasing your income, and then save and secure your money to make more money.
You are not going to work forever.
You have to stop one day.
If you learn how to manage your money, you can retire while you are still young and you can enjoy the rest of your life.
This is all up to you and your ability to manage your life and wealth.
Become wiser in making and spending your money and learn how to increase the value of your wealth, and become one more step closer to billionaires who have mastered the money and wealth management.
Maybe your billionaire mindset won’t make you a billionaire.
But it can make a happier life for you and make your richer.
6. Billionaires Are Independent
Billionaires associate with successful people.
They also consult with experts, and believe in teamwork.
But, they are 100% independent.
It means they don’t cling to people and things.
Their business isn’t dependent on any special person, or product.
They manage their business in the way that it keeps moving if a key person leaves or a product gets banned by the government or consumers.
When you are dependent on someone, you will fall down when he leaves.
It is like when you put all your eggs in one basket.
You lose all your eggs if you drop the basket.
Billionaires build and manage strong teams, but neither their business, nor themselves, are dependent on any special person.
That is not all.
They manage their business in a way that it works even without the them.
Can you believe that?
Are you like that, or you are dependent or codependent?
Did you know that when you are dependent on someone or something, he/she/it can manage you and your life very easily, and you will be down when you lose him/her/it?
Did you know that if you depend on someone, your happiness will be dependent on him or her too?
“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.” — Albert Einstein
Do you see what Einstein says?
That quote isn’t by an ordinary and mediocre person.
It is by Albert Einstein.
If you tie your life to a goal, it is always there waiting for you to achieve it.
It never leaves you alone.
Your goal never betrays you.
It always gives you energy and enthusiasm to live, work and be happy.
It motivates you and makes you a different and better person every day.
So, don’t be dependent, and tie your life to a goal, if you want to live a happy life.
When you have such a billionaire mindset, you will be one more step closer to billionaires.
7. Billionaires Are Super-Active
They are brave enough to start.
They take risks.
At the same time, they work hard when necessary and believe nothing can be compared to hard-work.
If you like to achieve your dreams, you have to have such a billionaire mindset, and you have to work hard.
It doesn’t matter if you make a mistake and everything you have done, goes down the drain.
You learn lots of things and then you will start from scratch.
You repeat this until you succeed.
Be a too strong hard-working person, and get another step closer to having a billionaire mindset.
8. Billionaires Have Big Goals
You are what you think.
If your goals and dreams are small, or if you are happy with the least, then you will remain a small person for good.
It is free to have big dreams.
You don’t pay for your dreams.
Your dreams can be as big as possible.
Did you know that anything that we can dream is possible?
If we can dream something, then it is possible to achieve it in reality.
So, why are you afraid of having big dreams?
The bigger your goals are, the harder you will have to work to achieve them.
And, the harder you work, the luckier you get, and you will finally achieve your dreams.
When your goals are small, you don’t spend enough energy to achieve them.
So, it is possible that you never reach even your small goals.
But, when they are big, you spend lots of time and energy to reach them, and you achieve lots of small things while you are on your way toward your big dreams and goals.
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” — Norman Vincent Peale
Do you think it is impossible to become a billionaire?
That is a stupid mindset, because nobody comes to this world while he/she is already a billionaire.
They work and make it happen.
Why you think it is possible for them, but not for you?
They had nothing more when they started.
They just had big goals and dreams to follow.
This is what you can do too.
Nobody charges you for having big dreams.
So, start having big dreams.
Just have them in your mind.
Think about them.
And, take lots of actions.
This is exactly the billionaire mindset: Having big dreams and goals, and taking lots of actions…
9. Billionaires Divide the Big Projects into Small Stages
Having a proper and well-organized plan and dividing big jobs into smaller stages, is what everybody who likes to succeed, must learn.
Billionaires are good project managers.
They know where to start and what stages they have to pass, to complete a job.
They start from the very first stage, and reach the last one.
I have seen so many who have big and good goals, but instead of preparing the foundation and starting from the first stage, they start from the middle or the last.
It is like building a big house, but instead of buying the land, first you buy the doors and windows.
Such a house will never be built.
So learn to program and plan and start from the first step.
What is the first step you have to pass, if you want to become a physician, pilot, engineer, and…?
What is the first step if you want to become a billionaire?
I tell you: first, you have to start dreaming it 🙂
10. Billionaires Program Their Minds Toward Success
Your mind and your subconscious, rule your life.
If you learn how to program your subconscious to achieving big dreams, then you will reach them.
I don’t know how, but you will achieve them.
Your subconscious finds a way to do it.
It does what you want.
If you want to have a happy life, it makes a happy life for you.
If you focus your mind on negativity, it attracts negativity to you and your life.
Like so many other great things, it is free to program your subconscious.
Nobody charges you for it.
It is the best free thing you have in your life.
If you learn how to use it to attract the good things, you will have everything you want to have.
And, it is very easy to learn this.
Just think about the good things, beautiful dreams and wishes, big and brilliant goals.
They all come to your life somehow, and from the way you can never imagine.
Before you become a billionaire in reality, you have to have a billionaire mindset.
Are you mentally a billionaire?
If yes, then you will become a billionaire in reality very sooner than later 🙂
Keep in mind that while you focus on your dreams in your mind, you should take proper actions too.
Dreaming and wanting are not enough.
You have to take actions.
11. Billionaires Forecast the Obstacles and Problems
You don’t have a billionaire mindset as long as you are not strong enough to deal with problems properly.
Obstacles and problems are nothing to stop the billionaires.
Billionaires are always prepared to face them.
It is normal to be faced with problems along the way.
Problems are the important part of any game.
You should learn how to face and resolve them.
You should not run away from them.
Sometimes a problem can take lots of time to be resolved.
But, it is worth to do it and advance to the next stage.
Get used to deal with problems, and learn how to resolve them the easy way.
Don’t make the problems more complicated.
Just simplify and resolve them.
12. Billionaires Look at the Problems as Opportunities
Problems are opportunities to (1) learn new things, and (2) become stronger.
You need both to reach your destination.
You need to learn new things an know a lot more than what you know now.
At the same time, you need to be stronger to complete the next stages toward achieving your goals.
And, you can achieve this only when you face the problems and resolve them.
So, problems are not bad and disgusting.
They are good opportunities to gain lots of good things.
You will never be the same person after resolving a problem.
You will be stronger, wiser and more experienced.
Those who have a billionaire mindset, are good problem solvers.
13. Billionaires Have Faith on Themselves and Their Abilities
Billionaires know that they can achieve everything they want.
They know no limit for their abilities.
This is the result of the proper programming of their subconscious.
They believe they can do everything, and they really do everything they want to.
You are like them too.
You can do everything you want to.
The difference is that you think you can’t.
This is just an illusion.
It is not true, but it can prevent you from taking big steps.
When you believe you can’t, you can’t, and so, you don’t take any actions.
“Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you are right.” — Henry Ford
So, everything depends on your mentality.
It is your thoughts that make your life.
You are what you think.
You have to start from your mind.
That is the very first step.
Then you have to take actions accordingly.
14. Billionaires Never Give Up
You fail only when you give up.
“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.” — Thomas A. Edison
Have you ever given up on something?
If yes, then never give up from now on.
You either find a way, or you build a way.
There is no point to stop.
You have to keep going.
The good results will come sooner than what you expect, if you keep on working, and if you don’t give up.
Billionaires never give up.
Giving up has no place and definition in the billionaire mindset.
They wouldn’t be billionaires if they were used to give up.
The worst kind of giving up is when you give up on yourself.
When you give up on yourself, you give up on your family, goals, purpose, future… you give up on your future success…
You cannot give up on yourself.
You have to fight…
Be strong and keep going.
Do you think you have the billionaire mindset?
It is not that hard to have all the above 14 characteristics.
Many of them depend on your mind and mentality.
They are free, but valuable and priceless.
Even if you don’t want to become rich, millionaire or billionaire, having a billionaire mindset will make a better life for you.
