Entrepreneurs creating wild success in their businesses – the kind of success that has you reading about it from your laptop and wondering ‘how the F is that even possible?’ – have one thing in common: they’ve built a millionaire mindset that allows them to succeed.
In this article you’re going to learn the exact tools successful entrepreneurs are using to help them create wild results in their businesses, like:
- Making $108,000 in 4 weeks
- Secure 70% of their typical annual revenue in the first month of the year!!
- Hit their quarterly goal within 4 weeks and double it
- Achieve their 5 year business goal in 8 weeks
- Double their year over year revenue
These are real results from real clients that have used these tools to help them launch, grow, and scale thriving businesses while living fulfilling lives.
What is a millionaire mindset?
Your mindset is the way you think: about your current circumstances, about what’s happened in the past, and about what’s possible for you in the future. It’s determined by the beliefs you hold (based on cultural and parental conditioning) and the thoughts you’re used to thinking.
As an entrepreneur, you’re probably focused on creating that external result you desperately desire – the first paying client, the 6 figure year, the million dollar business – but if you haven’t understood how the thoughts in your head affect your ability to create that external result, it won’t be possible for you to create that success. #sorrynotsorry
The way you think affects the way you feel. The way you feel affects the actions you do or don’t take. The actions you do or don’t take affect the results you do or don’t see.
And that is why any result you want to create in your business comes back to your mindset.
So, whatever result you’re working toward in your business, creating a millionaire mindset (or a success mindset) is absolutely critical.
If you don’t, all of the effort you’re putting into your business will fall short.
Here’s a story of exactly how our mindset affects our results:
One of my clients, K, felt a LOT of resistance to promoting a group program she had wanted to launch for years. She kept bumping the timeline, procrastinating on the sales page, and avoiding writing the promotional content. When we dug into what was really going on (beyond the surface level challenges) she realized the exact limiting belief that was holding her back:
K believed selling 1:1 spots was easier than selling group program spots.
This was ironic to her because just a few months earlier she had convinced herself of the opposite.
When K was able to create awareness around this belief, bank evidence against this belief, and shift her mindset, she immediately sold 5 spots in her first ever group program and had her first $4K month!
THIS is why paying attention to your mindset is so important in business. It directly impacts your ability to achieve the goals you’ve set.

Let me share the top 8 millionaire mindset habits successful entrepreneurs commit to on a regular basis to help them establish the entrepreneurial mindset that allows them to blow their goals out of the water.
Top 8 Millionaire Mindset Tools for Ambitious Entrepreneurs
Journaling to establish a positive headspace and millionaire mindset
Getting your thoughts out of your head and onto paper is a powerful way to not only clear your headspace and process your thoughts and feelings, but to set a powerful intention for how you want to feel.
Successful entrepreneurs take 10-15 minutes before they start their work day and empty out the frenzy of thoughts inside their head.
Whether you’re engaging in stream of consciousness journaling (aka just writing whatever thoughts you are thinking as a way of getting everything out of your head), gratitude journaling (listing 10 small things you’re grateful for to put you in a positive headspace), or goals journaling (writing down your goals as if they’ve already happened to motivate you to move forward), journaling is powerful tool to help you establish a millionaire mindset.

Confronting your fears instead of avoiding them
We like to pretend that we’ve got it all together, but most of us are deeply afraid of something. Whether that’s losing your freedom and spontaneity if you create “too much success”, what everyone will think if you abandon your stable job to pursue your dream business, we’ve got a thousand little fears/concerns/worries related to the goals we’ve set.
And that’s normal.
If you want to establish a millionaire mindset / success mindset, your number one job is to confront those fears on a daily basis (basically until your brain gets tired of being worried about the same things over and over again).
When you list all of your micro fears on a piece of paper, not only do they feel more manageable (rather than a frenzy of chaotic thoughts in your head), but you also see how unlikely they truly are.
Confronting your fears (rather than avoiding them and pretending they don’t exist) allows you to confidently move in the direction of your goals.
Affirmations to create a millionaire mindset
You don’t need to stand on the bathroom sink yelling about how much you love yourself if you don’t want to, but science has proven that repetition of thoughts makes those thoughts easier to recall.

There are literal neural pathways that deepend each time you think a thought, so if you’re always thinking “my business is going to crash and burn”, you’re going to continue thinking it until you repeat a different thought more often than that one.
One millionaire mindset habit successful entrepreneurs use to reprogram their thought patterns is to record your top 3 affirmations in the ThinkUp app and listen to them on repeat when you’re doing mindless tasks. I have mine on for 3 minutes each morning while I do my makeup, and it creates the millionaire mindset I need to show up intentionally in my business that day.
Visualization to tap into the feelings of achieving your goals
When your brain can picture something, it believes it’s possible (because it truly can’t differentiate between an image and reality, hence why movies feel so real).
When you sit and visualize yourself achieving your goals in utmost detail, you’re able to create a reality for your brain to attach to and get to work thinking up opportunities and ways of achieving it.

Plus, visualizing your success allows you to tap into the feelings that come with that success (before you’ve even created it!) and use those feelings to fuel you and move you forward.
Meditation to feel more grounded and less overwhelmed
In the day to day frenzy of leading a team, working through your to do list, and managing your life, there’s never a shortage of things competing for your time. Entrepreneurs, especially the ambitious ones, can easily get caught up in a cycle of go go going, and do do doing.
Taking 15 minutes to meditate each day is a powerful millionaire mindset tool that allows you to calm the frenzy of thoughts and get grounded in the present moment. From there, everything feels better: your challenges become less urgent, your priorities become more clear, and your headspace gets less overwhelmed.

Celebrating your progress (for real)
If you’re an ambitious entrepreneur growing your business to the next level, you’re always looking at the future. And that’s powerful.
But if you’re forgetting to celebrate your progress before moving on to the next goal, you’re going to get stuck in a hamster wheel of hyper achievement (which might look good from the outside but feel exhausting and semi-pointless on the inside).
You build a millionaire mindset by recognizing the wins you’ve created along this journey and truly celebrating yourself for all that you’ve achieved.
There will never be an “end” to your goals, so there is no point in waiting to celebrate your success.
Whether you take time each day to write down all that you’ve accomplished, or review a document of your small wins over the course of the past few years each week, celebrating your progress along the way is critical to building a millionaire mindset.
Unplugging completely from the day to day
The most successful entrepreneurs around the world aren’t getting their inbox to zero and working 9 to 5. They’ve built the systems, processes, teams, and routines that allow them to disconnect from their business (completely) and intentionally create periods of rest and relaxation that allow them to come up with the brilliant ideas that their business success depends on.
If you’re finding yourself caught in the day to day grind of creating success, it’s time to set aside your excuses for why you “can’t” get away, and experience the massive breakthroughs that come when you get out of the weeds and think at a high level.
Go to the beach, take a day to yourself at the Nordic Spa, embark on a 6 hour hike in the middle of a Monday.
Whatever your version of unplugging looks like, be sure to schedule AT LEAST a day a month to unplug and get creative. That’s what innovation really looks like in business.
Entrepreneurship is a wild ride. Having the tools that allow you to operate at your highest level makes the difference between growing a thriving business or barely getting by.
If you’re feeling unmotivated, stuck, or doing “fine” in your business, it’s time to prioritize the millionaire mindset tools that will allow you to step into your next level as an entrepreneur.
