41. Focus on saving money on small purchases as much as you do on big ones. Most people ignore the few dollars they spend on a daily basis while focusing on big spending decisions.

48. All successful businesses were started with an idea. How can you turn your ideas into money?
49. Have the conviction that you are a wealthy person. State your convictions in the present tense. This is because if you use the alternate “I will be wealthy,” you will be in essence telling your mind that you are not currently wealthy and never will be. It will always be at some future point. Yet, when you state your convictions in the present, you mind is forced to bend reality to equal your paradigm.

In fact many of the worlds most successful companies were started by people who chose opposite goals from what their parents or even society expects.
57. Embrace change. Progress is only made through changing the way things were originally done.
58. Become more assertive in your personal and business interests.

61. Continuously experiment to see what works.
62. Have the conviction that you are 100% responsible for your financial well being.
63. There is no perfect product or service. There are only improved products or services.
64. Reward yourself for each small step accomplished.
65. The more objective reality you can see, the bigger the edge you have over your competition. Those who perform the best in the stock market tend to have the clearest picture of the value of the companies they are trading in, the psychological drives of other traders, and current economic trends.
66. To create a superior idea use existing information in ways that others are not.
67. If you are in a pattern of financial loss, get into a pattern of financial gain. We are creatures of our habits. We can get into the habit of backsliding or making financial progress just as we can with a myriad of other habits.
68. Ask more questions in order to find more solutions.
69. Successful people see obstacles as opportunities.
70. Accept yourself. Use self acceptance as a positive foundation from which to add financial success upon.
71. Have the conviction that there is order in the universe. Successful people tend to believe that there is order and stability in their lives.

Therefore, risk and reward is an ever present part of life and should be utilized in ways that can create opportunities for wealth creation.
73. Practice competence and confidence. Make these feelings intertwined with your core self image. Each though you think is practice toward some greater belief. Practice thinking and doing things that bring financial abundance.
74. Associate massive pleasure to being wealthy and massive pain to being in poverty.
75. Be highly objective in determining how much value you are creating. Sometimes we over or under estimate the value our works. By being completely objective we can set the true market price for our product or service. Consumers feel comfortable buying items in which the value and price are closely matched.
76. The more accurately you assess yourself the more efficient you will be at enhancing your strengths and improving upon weaknesses. The more accurate you are in your assessments the faster you will be able to create value.
77. Increase your speed and ability to comprehend information. We are moving into a world where the future economy will be heavily based upon information resources. The faster you can absorb information and the better you can comprehend it the more valuable your services will be to the world.
78. Improve your communication skills. The better you are at communicating the better you will be able to read others verbal and non-verbal signals. This will allow you to get a greater feel for their needs and in the process be more likely to close a deal.
79. Be action orientated. Get into the habit of turning your thoughts into action.
80. Have a high tolerance for ambiguity. People often lock themselves into a corner by thinking in black and white terms. However, the world in its infinite complexity demands a mindset which is highly flexible. You will have the advantage of spotting opportunities sooner with a non-dualistic mindset.
81. Increase your verbal self confidence. People are more likely to be influenced by confident speakers.
82. Make every day an opportunity to improve some aspect of your life. The more balanced and self actualized you are the more stable your earning potential will be.
83. Establish value through demonstrated behavior, products, or services. Many businesses spend millions of dollars on advertisements touting their value, but the most successful businesses are those that are known through world of mouth. The more value you create the less of a role advertising will need to play.
84. Have a belief in something higher than yourself. This entity does not have to be religious in nature. It can be a cause, an idea, or a goal for the greater good. Many of the worlds successful leaders derived their power from a goal greater than themselves.
85. Study human psychology. Determine the basic underlying drives, needs, and goals of humanity in general. This way you will be better able to fill these needs with a product or service.
86. Be highly disciplined. Often the difference between those who get promotions and those who don’t is their level of discipline. Discipline is a trait that is highly in demand and often times in supply. Increase your level of discipline and watch your self rise to the top.
87. Brainstorm. Throw unusual ideas together to get a different perspective of a financial problem. Look at it from upside down, right side up, or inverted. A change in perspective may open the door to financial opportunity.
88. Have the conviction that money is good. Money is a tool you can use to help yourself and others.
89. Be happy for those who are wealthy. The more you want for others the more will be given to you.

91. Be modest in demeanor. People often will go all out for the underdog or the person who is modest about their successes.
92. One repeat customer is worth more than ten new or infrequent customers. Repeat business is acquired through trust and customer satisfaction.
93. Never miss a vacation. We all need time to rest, relax, and recharge. While it is shown that self made millionaires tend to work longer hours, they also tend to enjoy longer and more feature rich vacations once they do decide to take one.
94. Base your happiness on the journey instead of the outcome. Building success is a continuous and never ending journey. Enjoy each step of the way in order to maintain an adequate level of motivation.
95. Think of wealth creation as a process that extends past one’s lifetime. Pass down your wealth and wisdom to your children so they can continue to build upon your hard work. This is how families have been able to accumulate massive fortunes through multiple generations.
96. A successful business does not require a large sum of startup capital. Some of the worlds most successful businesses were started out of dorm rooms and dusty garages.
97. Keep your business model as simple as possible. The more cogs there are in the wheel the harder it will be to fix things when something goes wrong.
98. Believe in your product or service and others will be more likely to follow suit.
99. Know your market well. The more you know about your market base the better you will be able to mold your product or service to fit that market’s needs.
100. We get what we give.
