What does it take to start making money? Sure, having an action plan is required to actually begin, but have you ever thought of your mentality? Majority of the time, people get into a mindset where they think they can’t make money because they haven’t before or they think it’s a waste of time. But guess what, you’re here now reading this aren’t you? Signifying that you DO believe there are ways to make money. You have to start with actually thinking you can do it, because if you believe you can’t, then you definitely won’t.
Making money and getting in shape are extremely similar, why though? People get discouraged if they don’t see results immediately when in reality it takes weeks, months, and years to get to where you want. If you think that you’re going to make a lot of money in your first week, then please stop reading. The point of this blog is to make you realize that it takes time, dedication, frustration, trials & error, and constant drive to get to where you want. Before we begin this journey, I ask that you think of these four simple thoughts:
- Hard work pays off – if you don’t want to work, then you don’t want to take home the bacon, it’s as simple as that.
- People get lucky, but most of us aren’t – ever wanted to hit that PowerBall? Me too, but did I? No. Not many people are lucky, so don’t bank on luck to get to where you want. If you want to get where you want, then you have to work your tail off and not wait for “luck” to happen. Go out and get it.
- You can’t leap the pond in one hop, it takes small stepping stones – if your goal is to get to the other side of the pond where the money is, you can’t get there in one jump. It’s going to take you small steps and small goals to get there, heck some might even sink on you. But again, you have to keep trucking along.
- Enjoy the ride – what’s the point of doing all of this if you truly hate it? Expand your mind, never stop learning, but enjoy the ride to success.
Until next time!
