Thinking Like a Millionaire

This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.

Neagle Code Question

Hi David,

You say that you shouldn’t think from where you are. If you have $50,000 but want a million, you should be thinking from a million. 

But what if you don’t know how millionaires think when you’ve only been in the $50,000 place? How do you think from a place you’ve never been?

Neagle Code Answer

What you should understand is that the world isn’t hiding any knowledge of the universe from you – it’s all out there somewhere.

There are plenty of books on how millionaires think, which you can use to figure out their mindset. If you want a recommendation, look no further than Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

In the book, you’ll find the 13 essential principles that you should follow. People might talk about some other principles, but almost all of them are derivatives of those 13.

But there’s another important thing about the book that I’d like to mention… 

Napoleon Hill studied 500 wealthy people for the book. The big question is, where did their thought process come from?

The thing is, the world didn’t have many millionaires or billionaires prior to the industrial revolution. What is it that enabled their number to explode since then?

The answer lies in an invaluable concept known as the level of awareness, which is equivalent to the knowledge of the universe.

All the knowledge that ever was or ever will be is 100% present in all places at the same time.

Right now, your level of awareness revolves around the $50,000. That’s neither good nor bad – it just is. But that’s your starting position from which you can move up.


It starts with your decision to hold a picture of a million in your mind, rather than a picture of $50,000. The moment you do that, you’ll increase your vibration and start attracting thoughts about how to create that million.

To do this, you must first let go of everything that binds you to the $50,000 level of awareness.

For instance, this level might tell you that it’s all about hard work and that it’s going to be difficult. In comparison, the $1 million level will show you that leverage is the primary value. 

Until you let go of that hard work narrative, you won’t be able to open yourself up to the opportunities to create that leverage.

So, let go of everything of lower nature and start moving up the higher levels of awareness. One level at a time, and you’ll eventually reach that million.
