POOR MINDSET HABITS: HOW TO BREAK THE CYCLE
Have you always been concerned about your financial situation, even before you knew who you were?
Do you find it difficult to earn money, and do you worry that you may always struggle financially because of this?
If money has been a problem for you for the majority of your life, the sad fact is that you may have a poor mentality. As a result, you likely have a number of behaviors that come from having a poor mindset, which keep you, well, poor.
The great news is that it is always possible to improve your thinking and transform your life; all it takes is to make the transition from having a bad mindset to having a rich mindset.
One last piece of encouraging information that I’d like to share with you is that you are the architect of your own life.
You are not helpless in any circumstance that you do not want to be in as long as you keep in mind that you are a powerful creator rather than a victim, and as long as you begin to make some adjustments to the way that you think, feel, and act, you will see that you are not helpless in any circumstance that you do not want to be in.
Because we are such strong producers, we are the ones who decide what happens in every aspect of our lives, even the financial one.
Because your frame of mind and the way you direct your energy determine how your life and all of its aspects will seem, altering your frame of mind may truly result in a total transformation of your existence.
Even taking no action at all and allowing things to occur at random is a decision; it’s a choice to continue being a victim of life rather than becoming its creator.
Continue reading this article if you want to completely alter your life as well as your current financial situation. In this piece, I will discuss what the poor mindset is, what the 11 primary behaviors of the poor mindset are, and how to transition from a poor mode of thinking to a rich attitude. If you continue reading, you will learn how to do this.
How Do You Know If You Have a Poor Mentality?
If you want to know whether or not you have a bad mentality, the first thing you need to do is learn what a poor mentality looks like. This is because the only way to properly alter anything is to first acknowledge and then comprehend the issue.
An individual with a poor mentality has a number of negative views about money and, in general, a terrible connection with it. This might be shown by their poor financial situation.
They feel, either consciously or unconsciously, that it is very difficult to earn money, or they see money as being something negative or as a burden, and they do not want to “deal with” money because of this perception.
A person with a bad mentality, to put it simply, has a very terrible connection with money and does not truly respect or enjoy money in the way that other people do.
Now, the question I have for you is this: if this is how you feel about money, how do you believe you can continue to have financial success and bring more of it into your life?
How can you attract the energy of money when you are sending the energy of hatred, rage, and frustration towards money? If every aspect of this cosmos is energy, how then can you attract the energy of money?
Because you push money farther away from you every time you engage in behavior that is detrimental to your current financial condition (such as spending frivolously) or engage in negative thoughts about money (such as “money is evil” or “money is hard to earn”), for the simple reason that you do so.
I am going to discuss the primary behaviors of those with a poor mentality in order to assist you in gaining an understanding of which are the worst acts to do or habits to have in relation to money.
What Are The Behaviors That Are Indicative Of A Negative Mindset?
1. You Hold Onto False Views Regarding Financial Matters
Because our parents did not have the opportunity to get financial education, they taught us and the rest of our siblings all kinds of terrible things about money as we were growing up.
They most likely were not exposed to the concepts of the Law of Attraction, the effectiveness of positive thoughts, or the power of words.
As a result, it is not abnormal for individuals to have experienced a wide variety of unfavorable ideas towards money.
To this day, I can still hear my father’s voice in my brain saying things like, “Money doesn’t come easy,” “You have to work extremely hard to go ahead in life,” and “Life is really difficult.”
When I was a kid, I always took what he had to say extremely seriously.
It’s no surprise that by the time I was 22 years old, I was already experiencing burnout and the attendant health problems, on top of the fact that I was still broke.
It took me a really long time to stop attributing money and life in this way and to try to love and receiving money as a beautiful part of our lives and as an energy that easily comes to me if I let it.
If your parents used to talk about money (and life) in this way, I advise you to examine your own dysfunctional financial views and begin using affirmations that promote wealth and prosperity.
2. You Don’t Enjoy Life
You may be asking what this has to do with having a mentality of scarcity or poverty, but I can assure you that your financial status has a significant impact on how you approach life in general and how that outlook is shaped by your circumstances.
You know, if you value life and you build the best possible life rather than living in the role of a victim, you experience a state of flow in which wealth flows to you effortlessly. This is because you love life when you make the life of your dreams.
Additionally, if you are truly in love with life and are living in alignment with your higher purpose, it is quite probable that you will have a job that you like, and that is an essential component of your divine mission for this incarnation.
If you choose a career that you are passionate about, you will excel at your profession, and success in financial matters will come naturally to you as a result.
3. You Have No Idea What It Is That You Genuinely Want Out Of Life
This is very much connected to the point that was made before.
You have a very high possibility of spending your life in victim mode if you don’t genuinely enjoy life and don’t know what you really want in life. You won’t be living your life as a powerful creator, and you won’t be living your life in alignment with your higher purpose.
You need to have a clear idea of what you truly want to achieve and what your actual calling is in order to have any chance of being prosperous and successful.
You won’t be able to live the life that the Universe has planned for you, you won’t be able to accomplish your real goal, and you won’t be able to live a life that is plentiful and successful unless you do those things.
4. Instead Of Putting Your Efforts Into Making Money Work For You, You Put Your Labor Towards Earning It
The belief that one must toil away for one’s livelihood rather than find ways to put one’s wealth to work for oneself is another example of a mentality that contributes to an unsatisfactory quality of life.
If you labor for money, you will always have the underlying sensation that you are a slave to it.
When you make the decision to turn the energy of money into something that works for you rather than the other way around, you start thinking about innovative ways to gain a passive income and ways in which the power of money might start supporting you rather than the other way around.
To put your money to work for you, you must first recognize that it is merely a kind of energy, that it is not something that should control your life, and that it is not something that is difficult to get.
To put your money to work for you, you will either need to develop some passive sources of income or educate yourself on the basics of investing.
If you understand how to work with the energy that money provides, you can do all of this and more.
5. You Find That Dealing With Money Is A Hardship
When you think about money, do you ever get the idea that it’s a burden or that it’s something you don’t want to think about? If yes, this question is for you. Do you ever get this feeling when you think about money?
Do you believe that it is difficult to make money? Do you try to get your mind off of money and the problems you’re having with it rather than worry about such things?
This might indicate that you have a highly negative attitude towards money and that you consider it to be a burden in your life. As a result, you are unable to attract the energy that is associated with financial success.
If you want to start drawing money effortlessly, you need to start thinking about money as if it were something that was beneficial for you and something that you desired. Only then will you be able to start attracting money quickly.
6. You Work For Money Rather Than Working For Yourself, Which Is A Mistake
This is distinct from the earlier idea of putting your money to work for you, which was discussed.
First and foremost, you need to have a clear understanding of the distinction between working for money and having money work for you.
The second thing you need to do is make sure you understand the distinction between working for money and working for yourself.
When you work for yourself, the major motivation behind your job is not to earn money, as it would be if you were employed by someone else.
Instead, you work because you are passionate about what you do and because, by doing so, you are able to accomplish the purpose for which you were sent into this world.
If the things you do on a daily basis provide you with happiness and a sense of accomplishment, you will work hard for both yourself and the greater good, secure in the knowledge that it is your mission to brighten the world via the things you do.
When you work for yourself and you like what you do, money will come to you, but you won’t have the feeling that you have to put in a lot of effort to earn it.
7. You Make Purchases With Money That You Do Not Have
When you spend money that you do not have, either by borrowing it from friends and family or by using a credit card, this is an example of another practice that demonstrates a negative mental attitude.
Because spending money that you did not generate gives you the deceptive feeling that you have more money than you really have, I do not urge other people to acquire credit cards or get into any kind of debt.
This can cause you to engage in behaviors that you will come to deeply regret, such as spending too much money and then having to consider ways to give it back; not to mention the money karma that you create for yourself, which will make it even more difficult for you to earn good money in the future.
If this happens to you, it’s important to steer clear of these kinds of situations as much as possible.
8. Both Your Vision And Your Discipline Are Lacking
Another habit of a negative attitude that prevents you from experiencing wealth in your life is when you do not have a clear picture of what you want your life to be and you continue to live a life that is not in alignment with that vision.
The condition of your relationships, job, abundance, and other important aspects of your life are all affected by this, even if it may not seem to have a clear connection to your current financial position or the amount of abundance you now experience in your life.
We all have, or at the very least, have had at one time in our lives, aspirations, and plans for how we want our lives to turn out.
You need to have a lot of self-control if you want to continue working toward the goal you have set for your life, rather than giving in to whatever challenges life throws at you and letting yourself become a victim.
Because if you don’t do something that you love, you almost surely won’t be as successful as you might be, and if you settle for a life that doesn’t fit with those aims, inauthenticity will start to affect you, which will directly affect the degree of abundance.
9. You Are A Greedy And Self-Centered Person
Being greedy and self-centered is an additional characteristic of a bad attitude.
A person is considered to be selfish if they do not want to share their resources with others, whether we are speaking about money, clothing, food, or anything else, and if they do not like to assist others.
For an individual who is motivated only by their own ego, the fulfillment of their wants and needs may take precedence over relationships with other people.
They don’t lend money to others, or if they do, it’s extremely seldom, and they only focus on how they may get more for themselves.
This is often the result of having a mentality of scarcity, which is the belief that if you contribute to others, you will not have sufficient resources for yourself.
Or, it might be founded on a total lack of respect for the welfare of other people, or – as is more often the case – on both.
This kind of thinking almost always generates highly terrible karma in respect to your money situation, but it also generates poor karma in relation to your relationship situation, and you will have to deal with the repercussions of it.
Even if the “payment” in karmic terms doesn’t take place for a number of years, the Universe will often punish selfish individuals by robbing them of the things or people they hold dearest in their lives.
10. You Are A Miserly Person
Being stingy with one’s money is another significant trait associated with a poor mentality.
Being a cheapskate implies that you don’t treat yourself or others even if you have money; you constantly keep getting the cheapest of things, even though sometimes the cheapest is also the worst. This is because being a cheapskate means that you don’t want to spend the money on yourself or others.
How do you anticipate the Universe will treat you if you don’t even appreciate yourself or the people closest to you enough to invest in good and pleasant things for them?
Even if you give to yourself, everything you put out into the universe will return to you in greater measure. This is the way things work in the universe in which we exist.
Your deeds will recompense you in some way, shape, or form, according to the precepts of the Law of Karma.
Because of this, if you just send out into the Universe the energy of scarcity and of not trusting the Universe to assist you financially, then this is precisely what you will get in return-scarcity as well as a lack of foundation and stability.
11. You Lack Knowledge About Financial Matters
The fact that so many individuals in the 21st century do not have enough financial education is something that strikes me as quite unfortunate.
Our parents and grandparents did not have the opportunity to receive financial education in the past. However, there are now many classes and books available on how to develop this area of your life in order to learn about the best and most effective ways to make money.
In the past, our parents and grandparents did not have the opportunity to receive financial education.
By getting a good education in finance, you may practically learn all of the secrets that successful people use to become rich. This includes learning how and where to invest your money, as well as how to manage your money and assets.
I have a strong conviction that everyone should have at least a little bit of financial education—the bare minimum, if not more because financial education can truly give you a new way of looking at money and prosperity.

There Are Differences Between the Practices of Those Who Have a Rich Mindset and Those Who Have a Poor Mindset
When you compare people with wealthy mentalities to those with poor mentalities, you will find that there are significant discrepancies in the following areas:
- The perspective one has on monetary resources.
- The perspective one takes on life
- The extent of one’s education in financial matters
The following table will highlight the contrasts between individuals who have a rich mentality and those who have a bad mindset in regard to these four areas. I hope this will make the idea clearer and simpler to comprehend.
|Area||Rich mindset||Poor mindset|
|mentality toward money||Centered on earning money, producing work, and adding value to society.||centered on splurging cash and acquiring material possessions. Not particularly passionate about anything.|
|mentality toward life||They powerfully control their own destiny. Has a distinct vision and adheres to it Recognize oneself and one’s life’s purpose.||Life’s victim. Lacks a clear vision, frequently modifies plans, and easily abandons projects. They have no idea of who they are or any distinct purpose in life.|
|The degree of financial literacy||extremely strong financial literacy. understands how to make money almost anywhere||minimal or none|
Has no concept of how money works and has no idea how to value opportunities.
|Kindness / Avariciosity||generous and enjoys assisting others. They understand that their contributions are multiplied.||A cheapskate who refuses to lend money, offer assistance, or make donations. Ignores the existence of money karma completely|
As can be seen, there is a significant gap between people who have wealthy mentalities and those who have poor mentalities.
Those who have a wealthy mentality will constantly attract additional riches, but those who have a poor mentality will eventually lose even what they already have. This is because a rich mentality attracts wealth.
How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Change Your Mindset
It is time to break free from that poor thinking and make the move toward a wealthy mindset if you want to see a shift in your life as well as your current financial circumstances.
Take into consideration the following in order to approach life with a prosperous mentality:
Determine What It Is You Want To Do With Your Life
Discovering your Divine Mission and the reason you were sent on this earth is the first step in developing a prosperous mentality in your life.
Instead of being a victim who passively lets everyone and everything into their life and is therefore perpetually miserable as a result, you should learn to become the conscious designer of your life.
Establish A Balanced Perspective On Financial Matters
Replace any dysfunctional ideas you have about money, such as “It is difficult to earn money,” with more positive thinking, such as “Money follows wherever I go” and “I make money very easily.”
Acquire Knowledge About Financial Matters For Yourself
Put an end to the notion that the only way to get financial stability is to work a 9-to-5 job and rack up a lot of credit card debt.
Instead, you should obtain some financial education and learn about the wonderful things you can do to put your money to work for you.
Turn yourself into a giving person and let the money roll in!
The flow of money is like the flow of kinetic energy; it flows where it is called and where it is designed to go.
There will be times when you have to give money to other people, and that is entirely OK since the money will undoubtedly find its way back to you!
When you are in a position where you have to offer anything, you shouldn’t be worried since all that you give will return to you doubled.
I would really appreciate it if you could share your thoughts with me on this post on the behaviors of people who have a poor mindset and let me know which concept or point has been the most helpful to you in the process of shifting from having a poor mindset to having a rich mindset.
