Do you dream of financial freedom? Have you written out a plan to achieve this goal? What is your long term plan? How are your short term decisions supporting your long term plan?
It’s that simple. It’s not luck. It’s not wishful thinking. It’s not about your self-esteem. There is nothing wrong with you. There are no blocks; nothing is holding you back. Financial freedom begins with having a plan and working towards it every day with every decision you make. When something doesn’t go your way, go back to the drawing board and figure out how to effectively tweak your plan, so you can continue on your journey to financial freedom. Expect it to be slow. Expect it to be painful at times and exciting at others. This isn’t a Hollywood movie. Reality is that it takes effort, planning, consistency, and discipline. Even the Law of Attraction tells us to take inspired action. By taking action steps every day, you are paving the road that leads to your success. It doesn’t always have to be grand action steps. It can be small ones like sending out emails or calling someone for advice.
What are your talents and strengths? How can you play to them to create a business or to pursue a job opportunity? Do you need more education? Can you learn the skills on the job? Can you teach yourself? Build a positive mindset by focusing on all the great things you can do to create financial security for yourself.
In this great country of ours, there are always opportunities to make money. Always. Be open to ideas and possibilities. It’s not going to be easy, and I’m not saying this to discourage you. I want you to be realistic, so you don’t give up when you come upon hard times and have to figure out how to move forward. It’s going to take effort and trying things different ways before you succeed. Don’t give up. Use you exquisite mind to brainstorm and come up with ideas and creative ways to get things done. It may not be an overnight success. It will probably be a lot of diligent work day after day as you build slowly. Don’t feel frustrated. Hang in there. Keep working at it. It will take time to flourish.
It’s not a sacrifice to devote your time, effort and resources to building your financial freedom. It’s a choice you make every day to save money, skip a social event, or turn off the television, so you can focus on learning or growing your ideas. It’s exciting, and it builds your confidence to focus on your future. These are the behind the scene things no one sees, which why they call you “Lucky” when you finally get your big break.
Then one day, you get a big break. Money pours in, but it wasn’t luck. It was your persistence and perseverance as you reviewed your goals every day and worked towards them.
If you have lots of debt, it will be a while before you feel like you can see the top of the mountain. But you will. One day you will wake up and say, “It’s not so bad.” And they it will feel like a locomotive because it will move really fast and people will say, “You are so lucky to be successful.” You will smile and only you will know how much effort, creativity, and mind power you put into your work to be as successful as you are.
Now that you know the secret, don’t let anything stop you from achieving your dreams!
