Hollywood might not be what comes to your mind when you think about upping your money mojo but let me show you how you can pull some golden nuggets from the movies.
Here are the 10 ways to hack you mind so it attracts money like flies to honey.
Get the popcorn ready. Lights, camera, action!
- Understand your money allergies.
Is money the root of all evil? Why money can’t buy happiness? And why doesn’t it grow on trees?!
Your concept of money can be as shady as Robert DeNiro’s character in Casino but does it help you increase your income?
Many popular beliefs about money are limiting your ability to attract more wealth into your life.
Take an inventory of your money allergies before you have to pop a Bendryl or two!

- Fall in LOVE with money.
If your beliefs about money are not supporting your ability to create abundance, it’s time to hit DELETE button.
Replace these beliefs with empowering statements and positive core values. Fall in love with money!
I’m not advocating to turn full gangsta on me like Robert De Niro in Goodfellas but a bit of love of money and hunger for success will get you from rags to riches.
- Be open to RECEIVE.
Most people just want to scream “Show me the money!” like Cuba Gooding Jr. in Jerry McGuire but they don’t know how to receive it when it’s right in front of them.
Do you bend down to pick up a penny from a street?
I bet you don’t.
Let me break it down for you: Your knees aren’t an excuse.
The Universe is showing you the money so take it. Receive it. Next time, it might throw you a new opportunity that you’ll miss because your “knees are hurting.”
If someone offers you a gift, a discount or an opportunity – say thank you and accept it.
- “Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?”
You ain’t Chris Tucker in Rush Hour but let me ask you: Do you pay attention to what you’re saying?
If you keep telling everyone: “I can’t afford it” or “I don’t have money,” then you won’t have money.
Universe offers 100% satisfaction guarantee. It’ll make sure your words come and stay true.
If you see and talk scarcity, you’ll continue to starve.
Instead, see abundance you already have in your life and re-confirm it each day with gratitude.
- “Go back and closer you must look.”
Star Wars guru knew it best. See you must.
Now that you have a more positive mindset around money, look for proof of gifts – all the ways in which the Universe showers you with unexpected money or new sources of income.
Did a sales guy tell you about a special promotion to save extra 25% off? Did your boss reward you with a free incentive trip? Did your past client unexpectedly re-enroll into another service?
You might not be Yoda yet, but observe and acknowledge how the Universe is responding to your new wealth consciousness.
“May the Force be with you!”
- Choose to be rich.
It might sound elemental, but do you actually want the money?
“Let me tell you something. There’s no nobility in poverty.
I’ve been a poor man, and I’ve been a rich man.
And I choose rich every f^*#ing time.”
Channel your inner Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street to decide you want the money and don’t settle for anything less.
- Go after the money.
Now that you’ve decided to be rich, don’t be like that guy in Notebook that waits for years to get the woman he wants.
Go after your income goals today. NOW!

- Do that thing you do the best.
“If you got an area of excellence… you’re the best at something, anything… then rich can be arranged. Rich can come fairly easy.”
Play the game like the master hustler Paul Newman in The Color of Money.
What makes your heart sing? What are you good at?
Monetize your passion and get your hustle on!
- Be determined in your Pursuit of Happiness.
“Don’t ever let someone tell you, you can’t do something. Not even me.
You got a dream, you got to protect it.
People can’t do something themselves, they want to tell you you can’t do it.
You want something, go get it. Period. All right?”
You might not need to wash the only shirt you have in a sink each day like Will Smith’s character but do what needs to be done and don’t worry about what anybody else thinks about your dreams.
Set you wealth goals, create an action plan, then stick to it.
Yes, it might mean you’ll have to watch less TV … but the good news is I’ll watch it for you and send you a summary – like this one. Cheeky me.
- Become a Slumdog Millionaire.
You might not have money yet but think BIG. Who doesn’t want to be a millionaire?
Universe likes to know where the money’s going. It’s very efficient like that.
So if you can point a needle in the right direction and have a plan, it’ll shower you with the dough.
Here’s a simple exercise you can do:
Imagine what it would be like to have a million dollars. What would you spend your money on?
Write down how you would use your money.
If you plan to invest in business – would you hire more employees and if so how many? What would their responsibilities be?
Be very specific and show the Universe exactly where the money is going.
It’s ok to throw in a Porsche or Bentley in the mix. Why the heck no?!
Congratulations. You’ve hacked your mind to let money in.
You can sing now …
“Hey, baby I got your money. Don’t you worry, I said hey!”
You Ol’ Dirty Bastard, you!
