You know the phrase that if something walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…it must be a duck.
Now, think about how that can help you turn your everyday mindset into the mindset of a millionaire.
All it takes is confidence in yourself and belief in your aspirations to take your current state of things to the next level. But those things can be hard to achieve.
Let me give you a guide to talk like a millionaire. Once you’ve got that part down, the rest will follow.
The phrase “fake it until you make it” must have worked enough in the past for people to still be saying it.
You may not feel confident in yourself, or in your choices and business decisions.
But don’t stress about it; that’s normal.
No one expects you to have everything figured out all the time, but it helps to have goals about where you want to be in the future.
Part of becoming a better version of yourself is visualizing who you want that to be.
In the case of wealth-building, I’d say becoming a millionaire is a good place to start.
But you don’t have to know all the business secrets and stock tips to start on that journey.
In fact, you can begin to act the part of a millionaire right now.
The key to becoming something that you want to be is to pretend you’re already there.
If you already had a million dollars, perhaps you wouldn’t worry about rent.
Now, I’m not saying to disregard your financial responsibilities. But hear me out.
Don’t stress over what you can’t control. Rent will be due whether you’re worried about it or not. So, don’t let it bog down your mental space.
Secondly, a millionaire would speak like theirs is the only voice in the room.
That doesn’t mean to talk over your coworkers or your family members, but you should take pride in the words you have to say.
In fact recent studies have shown that people with deep voices are perceived as more commanding, powerful, and leaderlike.
If you’re worried that the timbre of your voice won’t make the CEO or millionaire cut, don’t.
The first female British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has been catalogued as taking vocal lessons to deepen her intonation after having won her seat.
While this may seem like a good work-around, her credibility suffered because she didn’t appear genuine.
Barring hiring a voice coach, there are many things you can do to feel the part of a millionaire.
Status is just as much about your mindset as it is about money.
You can’t expect to take money-making by storm if you don’t believe you deserve to hold onto it.
So, next time you feel insecure or stuck in the mud, remember you have the voice of a millionaire.
The next step is to give that voice a person to match, then you’ll be well on your way to riches and success.
