Working Harder Won’t Make You Rich

Do you believe the only way for you to make more money is by working harder? It might work for a while, putting in longer and faster hours, but the truth is, we all have a limited capacity, and that inevitably leads to burnout. Perhaps you find yourself on the brink of burnout right now, wondering if there’s another way. Well, I’m here to tell you there absolutely is — a way to earn more money while working fewer hours. Is that something you would love?

What’s needed to make more money while working fewer hours is a simple mindset shift. I say “simple,” but it’s not always easy. Our culture romanticizes busyness and the hustle, making it easy to believe that the only way to get ahead is by putting in more hours. However, it’s simply not true; it’s just an idea, a belief we’ve adopted and allowed to shape our lives.

 

Do you believe the only way for you to make more money is by working harder?

So, what’s the answer? How can you work less and earn more? It begins with having a clear vision of what working less would look like. If you weren’t working as much, what would you do with your time? Read books, be in nature, spend time with your kids, volunteer — what would you love to be doing with your time freedom? Having a clear picture of that is crucial. Without a vision of what we do want, we continue perpetuating old patterns.

The second way to work less and earn more is to start believing that it’s possible. This is where the power of affirmations comes in. Napoleon Hill discusses autosuggestion — the things we repeatedly tell ourselves, which eventually become beliefs in our subconscious mind and shape our reality. If you keep saying, “I’m exhausted,” “I’m so tired,” or “I have no time,” your subconscious mind hears and accepts these messages, reflecting them in your reality.

The power of affirmations lies in doing them regularly with emotion. Affirmations must carry a certain emotion within them. When done regularly, they impress a new idea, a new belief on our subconscious mind. As we impress our subconscious mind, it works to make that belief our reality. Imagine doubling your income while working half the hours — would you love that? What would you be doing with your time? How much money would you be making? Regularly claim that for yourself. “I’m so happy and grateful that I’m working half the hours, generating twice the money.” People have achieved this through the power of affirming what they want.

The last piece I want to discuss today is scheduling time off. For most of us, our calendar dictates our activities, and we often say, “When I have time, I’ll schedule that coffee date, read that book, or see that movie.” Instead, start telling your calendar what you’re going to be doing and what’s important to you. Schedule fun, schedule play, schedule those things that matter to you. When they come up on your calendar, consciously decide to do them. It’s easy to fall back into old patterns of working harder, longer, faster. We need to interrupt that pattern and do something different. You don’t have to work harder to earn more money. Yes, effort is required, but in this culture, it’s not about working harder, longer, or faster. As you shift your mindset around money and time, observe what starts happening for you.

Here’s to you living a life you love,
