What’s your CURRENCY THINKING level?

I appreciate the way Gwen makes us think every week (she does so more frequently on Facebook!).

Let’s say you currently make $50,000 a year.  Ask yourself how can you DOUBLE YOUR INCOME this year.


You see, the vast majority think that in order to DOUBLE THEIR INCOME, they must work harder, get a side gig, work or get multiple extra jobs.  While that’s partially true it’s kind of like a bandage on a gaping wound.

Most people are programmed to think in the currency level where they’re currently living and experiencing life. i.e. my example of $50,000 a year.

So grasshopper, you’re probable eagerly waiting for Auntie Gwen to give the BIG REVEAL.

The problem is that my answer will most likely get lost in the money vertex of your day-to-day stresses.  Too blinded by paying the bills and making someone else’s dreams come true rather than your own so you settle for mediocrity.

I don’t mean that as an insult. It’s just facts for many out there. If it doesn’t apply to you then it doesn’t.  If you think it doesn’t, I’ve got news for you.

Even those making $1,000,000 a year fall into the trap of their CURRENCY LEVEL thinking.  To get to $10,000,000 a year, you must think differently than at $1,000,000 a year. The principle is the same no matter where you fall on the income spectrum.

The difference for me has been that I’ve learned and trained myself to think at the currency level far beyond what I was currently living at the time.

I was able to envision me making $500,000 a year when I was making $100,000. I’ve earned millions of dollars.

To make 5 or 10 times what you’re making now, it takes a different level of money thinking far beyond the thinking that got you to what income level you are today.


When we get to about $100k a year, we start to fear losing what we have instead of trying to double or triple what we have. That’s the INCOME VORTEX.

So we play it safe and stop growing mentally when all it takes is to think about money generation at the higher CURRENCY level.  For example, do you think people making $1,000,000 think the same about income generation than those making $100,000… NO WAY.

It doesn’t take more effort to make $100k a year versus $1,000,000 a year. All it takes is the knowledge and creative thinking on how you can do it.

Why not THINK INTO how you can make it happen in your life.  Make a list of what you can do to DOUBLE your income this year.

Be Strong. 💪

  1. Having made and lost what some would consider fortunes on at least two occasions, I can honesty say whether I was living in the big house on the golf course or in a friend’s basement I was happy. I discovered the more you make the more you spend. In those times I was broke I learned several things: 1) the value of friendships (you really learn who your friends are when you’re down), 2) don’t let being broke beat you down. Get up and start swinging again, and 3) if you are lucky enough to have a supportive mate, thank God for that because that is what get’s you through the difficult times. Today I’m back in the big house with a pool and still having fun.

    1. I love your comnent. I totally agree that earning money doesn’t necessarily equate to happiness but money does give you more options to be able to experience things in life that those in life that don’t have money are not able to experience. Bottom line is that I see money as an enabler. It enables you to grow faster and in more ways.
