The difference in the "millionaire mentality" and the "minimum mentality" is the difference in the life or the death of your home based business. The overwhelming majority of people live their entire lives knowing nothing and living nothing other than the minimum mentality. And that's fine for them. But, they live paycheck to paycheck, with no real desire other than to see Friday come -- and, ultimately to see 30 years of Fridays come so they can retire. In other words, they do the "minimum" that is required to get by in life. If this is you, well, you probably aren't reading this. And, you shouldn't be, as nothing here will be of benefit to you.

If you are looking for home based business success, then you have at least some desire for something more than 30 years of 9 to 5 and a nice watch at the end. While it is essential to home based business success, learning to think like a millionaire is easier said than done. It's a transformation that requires us to step out of our comfort zone, which is something most people avoid at all costs. The minimum mentality is easy because for most of us, we're making it okay as things are. We're getting by. We may be unhappy in our jobs, or living paycheck to paycheck, but we're surviving. And for those who aren't drifting through life in a comfort zone, those who may be drowning in debt or unhappiness, the millionaire mentality is perhaps even a greater leap because it's so hard to get your mind off of your current stresses.

Developing a millionaire mentality is work, but the payoff is priceless. There will be days when you want to give up, when you say "none of this works," and when you question whether it was "meant to be" for you. But once you're there, your whole life will change. You'll start seeing every challenge as an opportunity, every failure as the seed of a greater success to come.

Do you know of someone who appears to be lucky? Someone who always seems to be in the right place at the right time, who always seems to have things go her way? We often look at people like this and think they aren't smarter than us, prettier than us, they don't work harder than us -- so what gives? Good things happen for people like this because they have a millionaire mentality -- they expect good things to happen to them. These people often are dumber than you, uglier than you, and lazier than you, but it doesn't matter! They achieve home based business success, or whatever success they desire, because they think they can.

The thought of the day, led by the book and movie The Secret, teaches us to "ask and you shall receive," and that the only thing you have to do to get what you want is to simply want it. I love The Secret, but this aspect is a little misleading. There's an assertion that we each have our own personal genie, who grants our every wish simply upon our command. Sorry, but it's slightly more complicated than this.

You can become one of those people that everything goes right for; the one who appears to be inexplicably blessed. But it's going to take some work. Albert Einstein said the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. For things to change, you must change. The good news is, with a burning desire, you can develop a millionaire mentality. Coupled with focused action, this mentality leads to home based business success. We'll get started next time.
