Can Do Attitude - it's required

Having a can do attitude makes all the difference in the world, whether you're trying to get yourself out of a financial hole, or keep yourself from falling into one. It's all about believing in yourself.

Act like it and you will become it – have a "can do" spirit. It sure beats the crap out of having a poor attitude where you convince yourself that things are hopeless and nothing can be done.

Henry Ford said, "Whether you think you can or can't, you're right."

Part of this concept of having an attitude that says "can do" is a metaphysical thing, where you set your intentions and get yourself more receptive to having success in the financial area.

The idea is that after a while things will start falling into place, or at least you'll recognize how to fit them into place much easier once you get your mind properly aligned.

Financial freedom doesn’t come to you. You have to actively seek it with your actions and intentions.

Part of this is a sports thing, where you put your game face on and hit it hard. But, this isn’t about posturing; it's about training so you can play hard and win.

The game of money management and saving money can be won, you just have to work at it. The best thing about it is you decide when your thrifty living and good decision making has taken you as far as you want to go.

Part of this is just common sense. If you are going to be successful in heading down the path to wealth and comfort, you have to possess a "can do" spirit. If you don’t have that spirit, your biggest obstacle will hold you back time and again. The biggest obstacle is of course, you.

I'm a big proponent of being debt-free, and I mean entirely debt-free - no mortgage payment. It's not essential for financial freedom, but you'll love the feeling once you get there. If you didn't have a rent or mortgage payment, how much more could you do for yourself with your current level of income? I suspect plenty.

If you ever hope to see an abundance of wealth, you need to plug the hole in your boat. The wealthy don't necessarily make lots of money, instead, they know how to hang onto what they make, and make it work for them.
