If you are seeking a direction to be successful or wealthy, this post is meant to clarify your thoughts by asking yourself some questions which only you have the answers. This exercise I am recommending is you really need to do it if you want to get real benefits.
We will ask ourselves “How do I learn to do this?” “I do not have time to keep up.”
My answer is “Do what you like and take massive actions!”
You need a direction, a specific path and a plan to get there. It is definitely going to be hard, the work will not be as fun as you thought.
Firstly, ask yourself this question “What is your main goal for making money (offline or online)?”
When you list your goal or reason, describe it. Be very specific about what you want. You need to be crystal clear about this because it will be impossible to achieve something without knowing what it is that you want. For example, I want to make money online so that I can travel the world and become a nomad.
Now, write down your main goal or reason:_____________________________
My reason: I want to be financially free because (1) I want to have the choice to choose where and when I want to work (2) freedom to spend quality and quantity time with my family (3) I can watch my children at sports day/basketball tournament (4) I can travel and spend time with both my parents and parents-in-law.
The more you write the more it will reinforce your beliefs.
Your goal is your main motivator and your fuel to propel you forward.
What are the three things in life do you really enjoy the most? For these 3 things, will you do them even if you are not paid? Write a simple list, but you need to be serious about it and honest to yourself.
For me, the below are three things I really enjoy:
- I like to read books on various subjects
- I like to listen to my friends and advice them over coffee
- I like to spend time with my family
My Interests Are…
List what are the things that you find interesting. Anything that you are interested in, write it down. This may grow to become your business one day:
For me, my interests are
- Travel and see the world
- Invest in stocks
- Stock trading via options
- Learn how to teach children
- Starting businesses
- How business works
- History of Turkey and Europe
- Exercise to stay healthy
Next you need to take massive actions!
The step of making money, I am focusing on right now is:____________________________________________________________
How long will it take to get it started? Can I start it by next week?
What financial resources do I need to accomplish this? What is the true cost?
What skills do I need to acquire? What do I need to learn?
What contacts do I need in order for me to achieve this? Who can help me to achieve my goals? Who do I know, and who do they know? What I need to do to return the favor?
How much time will this process take me? What is the time commitment per day?
What is the system I need to put in place in order to achieve this? Do I need help or I can do this myself? How do I expedite things?
How can I simplify things and make things more efficient? Think faster, cheaper, and less risk?
What else I need to do, learn in order to complete the process?
What can I do better? Where can I learn to be better?
All these require massive actions to improve from your present situation. Go forth and propel from here to reach your goal.
Be it to become more wealth, more healthy or have more time freedom, think and set the direction. Make a plan and take actions to reach there.
