Getting and Keeping Your Wealth Consciousness

Getting and Keeping Charles F. Haanel’s Wealth Consciousness

The “wealth consciousness” (or the “money consciousness”) is more than just thinking that you are wealthy or that you have a “right” to be wealthy. Rather, It is . . .

a way of looking at the world and seeing opportunities, possibilities, and avenues for wealth creation.

Have you ever heard someone described as having a “mind for business”?

Or that someone has the “Midas touch“?

What does that mean?

It refers to that person’s ability (talent, skill) to see a way to make an activity or product or service profitable.

Like Bill Gates.

The “secret” to Mr. Gates’ wealth is that he saw profit and a business opportunity where NO ONE ELSE saw one. At the time, the entire computer industry was focused on the hardware as the way to make money. Mr. Gates pitched IBM on licensing his software (a revolutionary idea at the time) and he stipulated as part of the agreement that he could license that very same software to other companies. What did IBM do? They approved the deal because their thinking was that you made money with the hardware and not with the few cents in the licensing fee for the software.

That is the deal that began Mr. Gates’ rise.

That was the deal that made him millions.

And then billions.

That is the money consciousness.

Looking at a “deal” and making it a better deal.

Get it?

A similar event occurred with Steve Jobs and Apple. They got many of their ideas from the Xerox PARC facility because Xerox did not see how those technologies could make them money. Thus . . .

. . . one — Apple — had the “money consciousness” . . .

. . . the other — Xerox — did not.

You see, attaining wealth is not just a matter of gratitude nor of putting the Law of Attraction into operation. It’s . . .

. . . a matter of looking at the things around you and seeing the economic possibilities with them, or . . .

. . . developing a solution to a problem you (and others) have, and . . .

. . . seeing the world with new eyes and asking yourself the question “How can I make it better?”

Look at the world around you like you’ve never before seen it.

Perceive the value in it.

Define ways that you can inject value into something.

Finally, take what you’ve found and make money.

You will have found the “money consciousness.”

You can learn everything about the money consciousness with great books.
