Ive spent so much of my life in a rush. In fact, I still do! It’s funny how the very nature of becoming successful and wealthy takes time, yet my human nature wants to get rich quick.
Can you relate?
The good thing is that God created us for 120 years. So as long as we stay healthy and stay focused, we can all be as successful as we dream.
So what does it take to be successful?
Well I’m not your guru and I don’t know exactly what the answer is for you, but I do know it’s important not to make mistakes and for us to love what we do and to do it well.
Below are the three things I am focused on right now. They’ll continue to increase the rate at which I’ll become successful and I think they can help you too.
1. Focus on your high income skill. What is it that you love doing all day and time passes so quickly when you’re doing it. That’s your high income skill.
For some it will be banking, for others baking, and others still it will be taking care of kids. It’s OK what it is just do it well.
2. Focus on increasing your network. We are where we are because of who we know and what we know. If we had the right answers and had the right connections, we’d already be where we want to be.
So who do you need to connect with today and how can you reach out to them? Future you will thank you.
3. Focus on saving. While increasing your high income skill and diversifying your network is important, it’s still standard advice to make sure that you’re spending less than you’re earning.
Cash gives flexibility and agility to take on new business ventures or new jobs. It also gives opportunity for investing whether that be buying a business, buying real estate, or even just standard stocks of companies you’d love to own.
So that’s it for today. We’ll keep it pretty simple. If you want to be successful, know that it’s OK if it takes a little time. You will get there.
Focus on that high income skill, increasing your network to be around more people who are where you want to be, and save money so you can take advantage of future opportunities.
