Humphrey Yang, investor 11 money habits keeping YOU poor.

If you transform your financial mindset can you secure a better future?

"Deciding to" rather than "wanting to" change your finances is one of the first steps in shifting your mindset. A growth mindset means that you think with abundance and not with scarcity. 

If you're hoping to avoid financial regrets later on, remember that no step is too small. You don’t have to wait for the economy to work in your favor to build wealth.

fixed mindset vs. growth mindset

Someone with a fixed mindset about money likely believes they have little to no control over their financial outcomes. That they may work as hard as they physically can and make different choices throughout the day - but in the end, nothing will change.

On the other hand, someone with a growth mindset leans into optimism; they see themselves as Player 1 in their story who has the power to shift and alter their current state of their finances. They seize opportunities and continuously learn how to make small improvements and adjustments everyday, and focus on those small but significant successes.

Can you guess which mindset is closely correlated with financial resilience, wealth accumulation, and reduced financial stress? πŸ™ƒ You got itβ€” the growth mindset!
