“Visualizing or dreaming about being great is a necessary ingredient in the process of becoming.”
The Importance of Perspective
See yourself with “increase that is Divinely inspired”.
If you want to become a millionaire, you are required to change. Albert Einstein said, “The measure of intelligence is the ability to change. Jim Rohn said “Become a millionaire not for the million dollars, but for what it will make of you to achieve it.” Both are powerful quotes. To have what millionaires have, we must think and do what millionaires think and do. We must have the perspective of millionaires.
So what is the millionaire perspective? Millionaires hold a “big picture” in their minds. They don’t spend a lot of time on small, insignificant or unrelated issues. It’s like being an architect. They see the completed project as they are creating it. A millionaire has huge goals and often, unrealistic targets but he or she perseveres anyway. This perspective sees opportunities in places others haven’t seen and possibilities that others haven’t thought of.
You can control what is going on in your mind by visualizing experiences you want in your life. See yourself as a creator. God has given us the extraordinary ability to be creative. Think of yourself as a creative genius. A millionaire’s perspective is an open minded and positive outlook. They see themselves as very successful now and in the future.
Your Future Self
“Anyone who isn’t embarrassed of who they were last year probably isn’t learning enough.”
Alain de Botton
It’s important to define your ”Future Self”. Millionaires are not defined by their past. They allow their future selves to dictate their behavior. Benjamin Hardy says” It’s easier to approach a desired future than to avoid an undesired present.” Psychologists have even discovered that our behavior is motivated to do only two things. We are either striving to approach something we want or we’re working to avoid something that we don’t want. It’s a fact, what we focus on expands.
“A mind that is stretched by new experience can never go back to it’s old dimensions.”
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.
Commit to having your desired future dictate your behavior. Love learning. As you are learning the perspectives and behaviors of a millionaire, you will also unlearn unproductive behaviors at the same time. Just know up front, this will take time. We can’t do it overnight. Once you know your Purpose ( see “Find Your Purpose: Become a Millionaire” ), you will be able to carefully define your “Future Self”. “What man actually needs is not a tensionless state, but rather the striving and struggling for a worthwhile goal, a freely chosen task.” Victor Frankl.
“If you view your Future Self as a different person, you can make decisions here-and-now based on what your future self would want, rather than what you want solely in the moment” Benjamin Hardy. Don’t assume you will always be who you are today. Your “Future Self” will be a successful millionaire!
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1 KJV
The first principle is this: Have faith. The more faith you have, the more you will actually believe that you can become the “Future Self” along with the acquisition of the millionaire status that you are striving for. Faith is just the belief that you are going to get to your phenomenal Vision. As the verse says, faith is the substance ( the material manifestation) of what you hope for. It is also the evidence (proof) of things not seen. Therefore, your success is already here! You must have the perspective and faith to see it first.
“Kingdom entrepreneurs must ask the Holy Spirit to anoint them with this uncanny prophetic ability to discern tomorrow’s business climate and how it will affect them.”
Another principle of Kingdom Millionaires is partnership with Holy Spirit. He will make the Wisdom of the Ages available to you in all wealth growing activities as well as other life issues. “Without fellowship with the Holy Spirit there can be no spiritual life, no faith with power and victory” Dr. David Yonggi Cho. Dr. Cho is founder and pastor of Yoido Full Gospel Church, Seoul, Korea. His church at one time had almost one million members. He attributes his success to honoring the Holy Spirit as his senior partner. Success is yours with the perspective of a millionaire, a clear Vision of your “Future Self”, along with abiding faith and Holy Spirit. Important: appoint Holy Spirit as your most Senior Partner.
“Once again, Father, place us on high, high above all the nations of the world. We arise and shine for our light is come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon us. Thank You for again turning Your face towards us to favor and reposition us.”
Apostle B. Dwayne Hardin
Father, place a deep conviction in us of our responsibility to become millionaires in Your Kingdom.
Give us a strong love of learning and an urgency to act on what we learn in pursuit of excellence for Your Kingdom.
We thank you Lord, and seal this prayer in the name of Jesus,
See you at the top!
