When you get your monthly paycheck, pay yourself first before you pay others; that is, deposit a percent of your paycheck to build an emergency fund or simply to save. Financial experts believe that to think and be rich, you need to deposit 10% – 20% of your pre-tax money into a high-interest savings account. This way, you can make your money grow, and you can use the amount in case of any financial emergency. Moreover, when you pay yourself first, you also send a message to your sub-conscious mind that you are earning, and you’re saving too. Thus, you start thinking of being rich.
Carry cash in your wallet
You rarely see a rich person running out of cash. To be rich, you need to act like a rich person. Does that mean spending whatever you have? No. What you have to do is carry cash in your wallet. The rich people don’t visit ATM much. They withdraw a relatively higher amount when they visit. When you do so, it sends a signal to your brain that you’re rich. It is also undoubtedly a better practice to use cash, than using plastic money, to become wealthy. When you spend with cash, you don’t incur debt but spend what you have. However, make it a point not to spend much. This way, you can feel yourself that you’re trustworthy.
