What we are going to talk about in this article to convert your desire for money into its monetary equivalent is based on a formula that has been working for more than 80 years.
While the title sounds a bit like “sell smoke”, I want you to pay close attention to each of the steps that we are going to share with you in this article.
And more importantly, that you practice and implement this formula every day. Well, only in this way will it work. If you put it into practice.
Steps to turn desire into money
You may be wondering where this formula came from, and why it has been around for over 80 years.
To explain it to you, I think it is important to first mention that finance books have a lot of value to deliver to us.
There, in their combination, is the key to being millionaires, but we can only achieve it if we decide to act.
Knowledge (in this case from books), as I have repeated in various articles, it’s just power in potential. If you do nothing with what you read there, it is useless. And the same goes for this formula to convert your desires into their monetary equivalent.
Specifically I’m talking about a formula that posed Napoleon Hill In his book Think and Grow Rich, which explains step by step the method to convert the desire for wealth into its physical result.
So, here are the 6 steps of this formula that Napoleon shared more than 80 years ago, and that has been read by more than 100 million people in the world.
1. Mentally visualize the exact amount of money you want
As Hill puts it in his wealth mindset book, it is not enough to say: “I want a lot of money”
To activate the formula you must define the exact amount you want. There is a psychological reason that requires this quantity to be defined.
If you don’t have an exact number, you will ramble, you will be permissive, and you will not focus on the activities necessary to achieve that financial goal that will attract your financial freedom.
2. Define exactly what you will give in exchange for the money you want
This point of the formula is the one that many fail. People pretend to learn and be millionaires with the minimum effort and without giving anything in return.
This is the reason why people believe that it is impossible to convert a desire for wealth into its monetary equivalent, because they are not willing to act and deliver value in exchange for this money.
Keep in mind what Napoleon said on the pages of his books more than 80 years ago: There is no such thing as receiving something for nothing..
3. Set a definite date
This is where the formula I’m talking about begins to work. It is essential and a requirement that you set a date on the calendar for this to come true.
Remember what we have been told so much about the goals in life, that these should be:
- Fixed in time.
When you set a date, you are communicating to your subconscious the monetary goal you have, the time you have, and what you must do to achieve it.
4. Create a detailed plan to achieve it
It is possible that at this point you lose faith, and feel that you do not know how to achieve your financial goal. It is normal.
The recommendation is that once you have that money goal, open yourself up to the possibilities, business opportunities, ideas and projects that come into your life.
The second thing is that you turn that goal into small daily actions for which you must work every day. This is known as the Kaizen method and it has allowed people, with small changes, to achieve big results.
It doesn’t have to be difficult, start testing: find a need in the people around you, ask yourself how you can add value to others.
And very important: remember that people are not interested in your needs, only how they can solve their problems.
If you are clear about this and act based on their needs (and not yours) you can make your desire for wealth come true.
5. Write a clear and concise statement of the amount of money you want
If you want this formula to work, you must commit to each of the steps on this list, and above all, pay close attention to this specific point.
We can say that reading this statement is the commitment you remind yourself of every day. It’s what keeps you motivated, even after days, weeks, and months have passed. It’s the way to remind you of your goal, even when you don’t see the results you expect.
It’s no secret that perseverance is what keeps you in your search, it is what allows you to keep fighting, and what finally ends up defeating failure.
Finally, remember that this statement must be clear, it must include the amount of money you intend to acquire, set a deadline, determine what you are going to give in exchange, and describe in detail the plan with which you are going to achieve it.
6. Read the statement twice a day
Every day when you wake up, and before you go to bed at night, read your wealth manifesto. Read it out loud and make it a success habit.
I assure you that this exercise will increase your confidence, keep you motivated and give you perspective to see difficult moments, like a setback, but it is not the end of a road.
It is very important that, when reading your manifesto, you see, feel and believe with your heart that you already have the money. If you follow these steps, you will be able to activate the formula and turn your desire for wealth into its monetary equivalent.
To finish, I just want you to keep in mind that if you doubt this formula, remember that Napoleon Hill He has impacted the lives of thousands of people who, following in his footsteps to achieve wealth, and implementing what he shares in his books, managed to turn their wishes into fortunes.
