How to Be Wealthy Now (When You Wanna Get Rich Quick)

Here’s a question to ask yourself at random times:

Am I getting?  Or am I being?

When it comes to new paradigms and big dreams, think about this:

Getting somewhere is not an option. There is no there to get to.

You gotta just be there.  Experience the feelings and the sheer knowingness of that thing you want.

When it comes to wealth, people often struggle because they spend their lives trying to get rich.

When you’re successful, you’re successful now.  Artists know this principle well.  You don’t wait to get creative before you create.  You just create. And that is what makes you creative.

The same is true with prosperity.

Sound like a load of hooey?

I hear ya!  (And doubt is a drag, pal.)

All I can say is that it worked (and works!) for me.  Here are nine simple ways you can BE rich starting right now…

1 – Get on a schedule.

If you have debt, or regular payments of any kind – then automate it, or put it on a schedule.  Paying a tiny amount regularly is better than waiting for the big pay-day to arrive.

That’s because waiting for rescue drains your creative energy. When you schedule things, you eliminate reactivity.  This liberates you.

2 – Fill your gas tank.

I was pretty broke when I first left my job and started out on my own.  One of my broke-person habits was to put only five dollars in the tank when I went to the gas station.

One day, I decided to fill up my tank.  A seemingly trivial decision, yes.  But I felt so rich that I’ve never considered not filling up my tank since then.

3 – Count Leaves.

The creator of this Universe didn’t fret about abundance.  There was no budget committee to oversee whether all the trees should get leaves.  “Maybe we should only put leaves on a few trees. Otherwise we might run out.”

It sounds ridiculous. But that’s how most of us spend our mental energy.

Count the leaves as they pop out all over this Spring!  Observe sand on the beach.  Watch a river for a few hours. It just keeps coming!   You’re a part of this flow. Remember that.

4 – Give.

The world would be quite a wild place if everyone gave constantly. Tithing is the most outrageous act of courage I know. It says, “Thank you. This isn’t mine anyway, so have some of it.”

Giving creates space. And space gets filled up again. If you feel poor, try giving some away.

5 – Eliminate nervous habits.

Think dignity. Think Princess Grace or Katharine Hepburn. Would these women of stature and wealth ever stand in the grocery aisle biting their nails because the price of organic oat groats had gone up?

Nervous habits are acts of lack.  (I call them Lactions.) Lack of trust. Lack of abundance.  Begin letting go by taking a deep breath and remembering trust.

6 – Start a Gratitude Journal.

If you have the “not enoughs,” then every night, write down 5 things for which you are grateful.

Remember this: Energy flows where attention goes. Put your attention on joy, beauty, wealth.  Celebrate even the smallest gains – your first new client, the bold decision to raise your rates, the great ideas that keep coming, the joy you get when you play with your dog. (The list is endless.)

7 – Get a million-dollar bill.

I got my first million-dollar bill from a gumball machine about 7 years ago. I put it in my wallet.  It made me happy whenever I paid for something and saw it in there.

Last year, my business made close to two million dollars.  Was it because of that million-dollar bill?  You decide. (Either way, you’re right.)

8 – Happily pay for services.

My clients often thank me for letting them pay me.  (No, I’m not kidding.)

This is a divine attitude towards money and service.

I try to have his attitude every time I sign a check.  I make sure to acknowledge the value of that service or product. The attitude with which you pay for things (the outflow) creates the manner of the in-flow. It’s one big cycle.

9 – Uplevel your language.

Stop announcing: “I can’t afford that.”

Tell yourself instead: “I’m choosing not to do that right now.”

Stop saying: “I’m broke.”

Start saying: “My bank account hasn’t caught up with my seven-figure business yet!”

Remember this: Your language is your creativity.  It is one of the simplest places to start being rich.

    This message from Christine is exactly what I needed to read this morning. Thank you Christine….I’m ready to feel the wealth!

    I absolutely love this quote feo you:

    “Getting somewhere is not an option. There is no there to get to. You gotta just be there.”

    I wrote it down a long time ago from one of your newsletters. It always helps bring me back to the present when I’ve only got my eye on the prize!

    Thanks for all the reminders Christine! I love especially counting leaves and giving… Thanks also for the Gold training call yesterday. So helpful. Wishing you and your husband bliss in Charleston!

    So here’s the thing……hooey happens or as I like to call it Karma. My word for the year is gratitude and for the first time I started writing a gratitude journal. One of my sons and his wife had seemed distant since our move back to the midwest even though one of the reasons we moved back was to be closer to family after the passing of my sister. My most recent entry into the journal was that I indeed loved my son even though it appeared he(they) were taking a different path at this time…….and then hooey! They called and asked if they could come see us this past weekend……hooey or karma, either works for me.

    And then I was trying to locate a designer for one of my clients, who we are very grateful for as they have been a HUGE boost to our business over the last two years. I had talked to him about the project and had misplaced his contact information. As I searched for his number at the Chicago Merchandise Mart online……who should call me on my cell? You guessed it …….hooey or karma I’ll take either. Thanks for these weekly kick in the pants Christine.

    I have another great story of karma this week that is a direct response from my journal………but I’ll save that for when I can attend one of Christine’s workshops with my wife……..

    Thank you Christine – all of your writing really hits home and especially todays. I made a move in my life a couple of years ago to a place where I face a language barrier on a daily basis. After reading your e-zine I thought to myself would Princess Grace or Katharine Hepburn be too scared to book a haircut — probably not, so I did it and called. They understood me and I understood them, there were no ackward pauses or getting yelled up or hung up on. I am happy to say I am no longer pretending that I am growing out my hair. It is only a small thing, but it is a big step for me in my daily struggle!

  6. says

    Thanks for the great list Christine. One of my major goals this year is to change my attitude about money (and consequently, bring in more of it!). I’ve already started the gratitude journal, which is a practice I LOVE. I’ll be sure to incorporate the others too, they’re great suggestions.

  7. says

    Great reminders. It’s easy to forget the importance of mindset & attitude for creating wealth… and anything else. Just curious, though… Did you mean Audrey Hepburn rather than Katharine Hepburn? Katharine was certainly a strong & admirable lady, so I suppose both are fabulous role models. It’s just a funny coincidence– I’ve been pondering gracefulness in my blog recently, and I happened to point to both Grace Kelly & Audrey Hepburn. :)

    Loving these tips and actually just started a gratitude journal at the beginning of the year and I can’t tell you how much I think the Universe is responding!! People should really have one. I also started doing Vision Boards and they extremely help as well! I’m feeling richer already :-)

    I really love tip #9. I have been doing this for a while now and the shift in energy is evident. When my kids ask me for something I can’t purchase at the moment I tell them that the Universe will send it to them when the time is right. At first, the looked at me like I was crazy but now they don;t fight it anymore. At the end of the day, they do get what the asked for.

    3 – Awareness of the present moment. One way to do this is to learn to be comfortable doing nothing- and I mean nothing. It is hard, at first. Increase the size of your own bubble, when walking, be aware of everything around you, and increase the size of your own comfortable zone. One of the most rewarding experiences!

  11. says

    I definitely think that if you think like you’re already rich, riches will start flowing your way. As long as you don’t go overboard and use your credit card to pay for everything to get yourself deep in debt that is. Good article. Thanks for sharing!

  12. hello says

    wow this is amazing, it is something we always forget. we always act in a certain way and forget that our intent sometimes begins with our imagination and intent becomes reality…..ha ha

  13. jackie and lisa says

    Imagine sending dollar bills to a person and they start getting wealthy. I bet that person would turn around and do the same for someone else. To me this is the best way for everyone to help everybody. Send me a dollar bill, I guarantee if money would come to me , I would turn around and do the same. Everyone helping each other. It makes the world go round
