- Set Big Money Goals
Have you ever thought about turning your annual income into your monthly income?
Can you imagine it? Does it sound even remotely possible?
Bob often says, “People don’t earn $100,000 a year because they want to earn $100,000 a year. They do it because they don’t know how to earn $100,000 a month.”
The only difference between the people earning #100,000 or more in a month and you is your level of awareness.
In order to raise your level of awareness, begin by making committed decisions that you’re going to increase your income 12 times over. Write this goal on a goal card (use present tense) and read this dutifully every day.
When you start to think about your goals, ideas on how to achieve it will start flowing.
There will be some ideas that will scare you, try not to ignore or reject them. It’s not logical to engage in the same thinking and behavior as you’re currently doing and expect your result to change by 12 times over.
You need to start educating yourself on how you can conceivably achieve your goal. You need to become bolder, surpass your supposed limits, cross boundaries most people run from and face your fears. Regularly take steps out of your comfort zone and fail more, just start taking that step.
Do these things over and over again if need be, until your goals become a reality.
- Create Multiple Sources of Income
In reality, all wealthy people have multiple Source of Income (MSI).
MSI should be viewed as a source of income that is fun, creative and passive. It won’t be interference to your primary source of income or cause you to jeopardize it.
By developing MSI, you can earn as much as your present primary source of income, it could be millions of dollars.
There are actually countless ways to make money with MSI, find below, some few examples to get your creative juice flowing:
- Write a book or movie script, record a song
- Join a network marketing company – every person in your downline is a potential MSI
- Intellectual property ( create an idea and give it to someone else to take to the market and receive royalty)
- Real estate investment
- Plant Money Seeds
In The Magic of Thinking Big, David Schwartz said, “You can’t harvest money unless you plant the seeds that grow money. And the seed of money is service. Put service first, and money takes care of itself.”
This words from Dr. Schwartz’s demonstrates his deep understanding of the law of cause and effect, this is the principal law on which everything in the universe operates. It’s another way of saying, “As you sow, so shall you reap.”
On this topic, it’s best to put it this way: your service will always match your rewards in life, this being said, each little “extra” you do for others is a money seed.
Understand that when you are planting seeds, you must first determine if you’re a business owner or an employee, the money you will earn is directly proportional to how much your performance increases.
If you make “giving” your motivation, you’ll start to get insights about how you can improve other people’s lives. You will find yourself contributing more and this will lead to far more opportunities, higher monetary rewards, and deeper relationships.
- Work with a Sense of Urgency
A factor that distinguishes people who make things happen from those who do not is the way each does their work each day.
Most people seem to be busy but rarely accomplish much of real value.
People who turn out to be extraordinary are focused oriented people, they know where they need to be and how they intend to get there. They have great tenacity, a focal point, a purpose. They work hard with a sense of urgency and are known for getting a lot done in a short period of time.
If you set your mind at it and work with a sense of urgency, you will quickly discover that you are thinking 10 times bigger than everyone else. You don/t have to work harder, it just happens that you work more efficiently through systematic though instead of random action.
Develop a trait of making your work count by developing a systematic plan and principal purpose to achieving your goal, in so doing, you will emerge from the group of those just looking from the fence into an achiever and leader.
Money is not the whole picture
Money is obviously important in life, it solves a lot of problems and we all spend a bigger part of our lives trying to make money.
The greatest reward of being a millionaire is not the amount of money you earn, it has to do with the kind of person you need to be to get there. There is a need to bring to the surface an outstanding part of you, a need to bring out the potential hidden inside of you, to the surface.
Money serves as a means to an end. If you are doing the work you love and believe in, money will be a tool for helping more people and making a difference.
