How to grow your own money tree?

What? Money grows on trees? Yes, it does!

We’ve been told from a young age that money doesn’t grow on trees and that all things in life come from hard work and no play. Our parents brushed off our questions by saying we were children and we didn’t understand. Many people can relate to this.

Fortunately for us, our parents were wrong. You simply need fertile soil and land to grow your money tree. We all know that dollars don’t bud on actual trees, so what do I mean by a money tree? The secret is that money trees need simply our belief in them. It is our belief that creates ideas in our minds. After all, 1000 years ago people believed that the earth was flat and the sun rotated around it. Your business is your money tree; even if you don’t work every day, it will still make money.

You see, our ideas make money trees possible. We think that just because the world tells us there are no more original ideas that we can’t succeed, we can’t create, when in fact, the opposite is true. The human mind produces over 60,000 ideas a day; this has been scientifically proven. Shouldn’t one of those ideas be a money tree waiting to be fed and grown?

 Narrow down the thoughts that count and ask yourself: does my idea make sense? Am I ready with this idea? Is my idea valid? Once you have your idea, just do what I do. Make your idea come to life! Create! The hardest and most important part is getting your idea out and making it real. Creation is all about innovation. Find something that interests you and see if the market has an existing product. If they do, what is this product missing? What haven’t they thought of yet?

Concentrate on that idea and make it a reality. Half of the problem in today’s world is that our ideas already exist in one form or another. What we have to do is reinvent and make new ideas. The biggest lesson here is make meaning to make money, rather than making money to make meaning. Make this your mantra.

Let me give you an example. When you were a kid, anything was possible. You put on your Superman outfit and believed you were Superman. You climbed trees without the thought that you might fall. You were free and fearless, believing that you could accomplish whatever you put your mind to.

As an adult, we’re still as creative as we were as children, but we are doubtful when it comes to starting a business. We are told not to take risks, so when you have an idea that could change the world, you tell yourself you can’t do it. Later on, you hear about someone else who actually implemented your idea, and they’re flourishing! You hear about his success and wish you had acted on your idea. If you had this idea as a kid, you wouldn’t have hesitated to put it into action. Don’t worry! It’s not too late. You still have time to believe and put that belief into action to grow your own money tree. You can still do it because creativity starts with belief.
