Have you ever wondered why some people work so hard but still remain poor while some others who don’t struggle that much grows richer? The difference is the Approach and Attitude. Making wealth is more or less a skill and it is mostly done in the Head, it is also not reserved for the “privileged” but can be learned by everyone.
The following actions can help you achieve much in a little space of time.
Discover Your Challenges and Anticipated Solutions
No one can tell more about you than yourself. You know your limitations – those things that don’t allow you to move forward. Write all of them down and search for their possible solutions.
For example, if your problem is ‘procrastination’, ask people who had overcome this challenge how they did it and apply it to your case.
The idea is to move you from thinking and nursing problems to solving problems.
To make headway in life, you must be a problem solver.
Do the Things You Have Not Done Before
Set the ball rolling for yourself because no one is ready to discover you in the crowd if you did not distinguish yourself. Run ahead of your folks.
There is nothing wrong in approaching those you think will help you achieve your ambition. Make that bold step of asking for referral from those in authority if you know any. Ask for a raise from your employer if you know you merited it. Start doing things in an extra-ordinary way.
Stop settling for ‘what is available’ and start thinking big. Dream big dreams and act as if it is real.
Change your approach of doing things that did not work and you will see great results.
Read, Listen, Watch and Invest in Motivational Materials
Make out time to read motivational books, watch podcasts and videos of individuals who had made it through thick and thin. Listen to good motivational speakers and attend business seminars, you will be put on your toes even if you are the dumbest person on earth.
Look out for such books as Rules that help. Educate yourself constantly on how making money works.
Join Elite Clubs
It could be a Church, Business Club, Sports Club or Non Governmental Organizations, the idea is to mingle with rich people. When you expose yourself to people who are better off and more exposed than you, it is likely going to expand your thinking, give you the connections that will catapult your income.
Read Life Histories of Successful and Rich People
Avail yourself with copies of biographies of those who have worked hard to make their wealth. Read about Warren Buffett, Steve Job even our own Dangote etc. When you read how these people made it from nothing to their enviable levels, you will be motivated.
The idea is to identify a role model who you can emulate.
Create More Than One Stream of Income
Look for ways of creating more than one income opportunity. There are different ways of achieving this like: investing in shares or properties, writing books, teaching on part time bases, blogging, internet marketing etc.
Sticking to one stream of income will only help you pay your bills and no one actually gets rich with such income.
Don’t be rigid and stay-put with one income job. Engage in other side jobs that will enable you earn extra money you will use for investment.
Don’t Jealous or Hate Rich People
This one is the list of them all but very powerful and effective because it got to do with your inner man.
When you see beautiful things that you like even if it is owned by your next door neighbor, appreciate it and congratulate the owner. Instead of being jealous and resentful, find a way to know how the owner was able to acquire it and apply that same method.
The idea is that if you appreciate good things and bless those who own them, you will attract good things to yourself.
