Many people dream of achieving a lifestyle income that allows them to separate their time from their money. This freedom is more than just an opportunity and a outcome; it requires a fundamental shift in thinking. Unfortunately, the majority of the population often harbors middle-class or poverty thinking, desiring a wealthy outcome but possessing the wrong thought process to manifest it. Let’s explore the importance of changing one’s thought process, the key differences between poverty, middle-class, and wealthy thinking, and how to transform your mentality to attain financial freedom.

The Importance of Thought Process

Thought process refers to the way in which you think and process information. It’s the foundation of your decision-making, behavior, and ultimately, your life choices. When most people focus solely on achieving a specific result, they neglect the essential aspect of thinking differently about ones choices. This transformation often involves embracing discomfort and pushing through it, rather than seeking the comfort of their existing habits.

Observing Wealthy Mentors

The path to a lifestyle income begins with a shift in mindset, which can be accelerated by studying the thought processes and behaviors of those who have already achieved the wealth and freedom you desire. Rather than gravitating towards actions that satisfy your comfort zone, you should seek to understand how wealthy individuals think and act. Observe what they do and why they do it, and then attempt to duplicate not only their efforts but also the mindset and habits behind those efforts.

Distinguishing Poverty, Middle-Class, and Wealthy Mindsets

Poverty Mindset:

  • The belief that resources, both time and money, are scarce and must be spent quickly because they might not be available again.
  • Disposal of time and money in the fastest way possible, often without considering their real value.

Middle-Class Mindset:

  • A tendency to hoard or save resources for a “rainy day.”
  • Excessive focus on counting the costs of everything rather than considering the value of investments.

Wealthy Mindset:

  • Viewing resources as tools for multiplying value.
  • Utilizing time and money in ways that yield strong dividends; investing time in others and influencing them positively, and investing money wisely to generate returns.
  • It’s not about saving what you have but expanding what you have, understanding that resources can be leveraged for growth.

The Rewiring of Thought Process

The most challenging part of achieving a wealthy outcome is the rewiring of your thought process, especially since you are attempting to do so from a place of deficiency. When you lack the correct mindset, the journey can be daunting. The most effective shortcut is finding a partner who can mentor you, or someone who has already achieved the desired results. They possess the thought process you need, and may be willing to guide you on your path. Convincing them to influence you and make their life as easy as possible to mentor you is invaluable. Once you break through, it becomes easier since you are no longer operating out of a deficit.


In your pursuit of separating time from money, remember that it’s not just about finding an opportunity and obtaining a specific outcome. It’s about undergoing a overhaul in a thought process. By breaking free from poverty or middle-class mentalities and adopting a wealth mentality, you can effectively leverage your time and money as tools for multiplying value. Seek out mentors, observe their thinking and actions, and allow their wisdom to guide your decisions. Remember that freedom isn’t just for leisure; it’s about setting others free and continuing to serve and lift up those around you. Success is a journey, not a destination, and the key to maintaining a wealthy outcome lies in staying humble and hungry to continue to do what got you there by serving others.
