Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?

Obstacles. Hurdles. Barriers. Roadblocks.

 

 

These are all common sights along the road to achievement. If you have ever worked towards a goal that most people would label as “unrealistic”, then you have undoubtedly faced one challenge after another. In fact, when you reach the point where you feel like giving up, that is usually when things get even tougher.

 

Believe it or not, these external obstacles are actually the easy part. They are obvious. We can examine them and devise a plan to work through them or around them. For example, if you want to start a business but lack the funding, there are a variety of tangible action steps you can take to resolve your funding issues.

 

The real barriers to success are the internal roadblocks. This is where it gets difficult. This is where you battle your own self-doubts, worries, and feelings of unworthiness.

 

You may have the best work ethic in the world. You may have the strictest discipline and self-control. But if your mind is listing all of the reasons why you shouldn’t have what you truly want, you are fighting a losing battle.

 

For many of us, these negative tapes have been playing the same disempowering messages in our minds for years. Continue reading →

Millionaire Rule #10 – Solve A Problem

solve problem

 

 

Becoming a millionaire is a process. You may not like every part of the process, but the parts you do love, can’t be beaten. You might enjoy motivating people or seeing yourself do amazing things with abilities you didn’t know you had. If you are young, and in your twenties, don’t be afraid to try all sorts of things. Figure out what you are good at in your thirties and maximize that in your forties.

 

You can become a millionaire at any age. Regardless of where you are in life, always over deliver in whatever you do. Go above and beyond the call of duty. Work smart and realize that success in a small task can lead to success in much bigger areas of your life. Your efforts will lead to recognition and a huge payoff in the long run.

 

Get in the habit of asking yourself if what you are about to do will advance your cause in becoming a millionaire? If it won’t, then learn to say, ”No.” Spend time with quality people and do not tolerate mediocrity. Take charge of your time and effort. The secret to enduring success is winning over time.

 

Learn how to spot opportunities in your everyday life. When the world seems to be in crisis mode, businesses, as well as people, are in turmoil, and it is only human to want someone or something to make things right. Continue reading →

Purpose = Freedom

purpose is freedom
It’s fair to say that if you don’t know your purpose in
life, you won’t be spending much time working on it. So
what will you end up doing with your working time instead?
Three things: 1) Working on your needs, 2) Working on other
people needs, 3) Working on other people’s purposes.
If you don’t know your purpose, the limit of the work you do
for yourself will be stuck at the level of need, which at
best has the potential to grow into greed. Not particularly
fulfilling spending your whole working life this way… Try it
yourself for a few decades if you don’t believe me, and then
look at the passionless shell that stares back at you from
your mirror.
As you work with/for other people, most likely you’ll be
putting lots of effort into satisfying other people’s needs
and greeds: your boss, your customers, your company’s
investors, etc. Even in your free time, you’ll be working to
fulfill the desires of advertisers who want you to watch TV
and buy stuff. Again, not particularly satisfying, although
you may be thrown a few bones by your benefactors, such as
the “gift” of working on some interesting projects. This
kind of life will ultimately make you want to stand up and
shout, “What exactly is the point of all of this?” But if
you actually do that, you’ll only get blank stares in
return. There is no point.
Now if you’re very lucky, you may get the chance to work for
someone or some organization which is itself focused on
achieving a conscious purpose. However, there’s no telling
what that purpose might be. If you don’t know your own
purpose, you can’t consciously choose to work for someone
whose purpose aligns with yours except by accident or
chance, and the odds of alignment are low. So there’s a good
chance you’ll be working hard to achieve a purpose you don’t
agree with. For example, if you join the military, you may
be put to use to achieve some big purpose, but what exactly
will it be? Most likely, in such situations, you’ll be given
a purpose to achieve that isn’t what you’d choose
consciously for yourself. Fulfilling to spend your whole
life this way? Not likely, but it’s at least a decent path
for people who don’t like to think much — others will take
care of all the thinking for you (and benefit greatly from
all your thoughtless doing).

The Wealthy Mindset – How Your Thoughts Affect Your Financial Future

 

wealthy mindset

 

Surely you’ve heard the saying that when you
believe in yourself, you can do anything. It’s a
piece of advice that gets passed around for a
reason – because it’s 100% true! It especially
applies to having a wealthy mindset. It doesn’t
matter where you’re starting from; with the right
steps, the sky really is the limit.

 

 

Believing In Yourself

 

Believing In Yourself

 

The first step is to truly believe that you can
accomplish anything when you set your mind to it.
You can prove to yourself that you believe you can
become wealthy by taking it seriously and making
concrete plans.

Financially, where are you right now and where do
you want to be? It doesn’t matter how far you need
to travel, you just need to set out plans right
now.

The next thing you need to work on is the “how” of
it all. What actions will you take in order to
achieve the wealth you desire?

When you write these plans down, you’ll be holding
something concrete that you can believe. It’s a
promise you’re making yourself for the future. You
can refer to your plans often as you begin to use
your wealthy mindset to take swift action.  Continue reading →
