If you are serious about making more money, then you must do some things you haven’t done. You will probably have to do a whole lot of things you don’t want to do as well.
Remember your ability to increase your income is right outside of your comfort zone. For most of us it is the fear zone. It is the place where there is this voice in our head saying to us “what will others think.”
We also think “what if I fail.” “What if I lose money?” “I don’t want to do that” The most famous excuse “I don’t have time.”
The bottom line is that Successful people do what Unsuccessful people are unwilling to do. We all have the same 24 hours. Some people are making a lot of money while others are not. Where will you be in 1 year?
Spend time doing your research. Research can reduce the time later spent preparing and planning. Research arms you with key information you might not have known about. Knowledge is power. Most of the time “we don’t know what we don’t know.” Don’t let this be you. Research is key. It is a very important step to increasing your income.
2. Study Your Craft
It is crucial that you are the very best at what you do. You need to know the trends happening in your industry. You should know your industry inside and out. Check associations in your field of expertise. Read magazines. Google your industry.
Learn 3 to 4 new skills a year. Every 4 months take a skill you want to learn such as Real Estate and read a book a week on the topic. Each week, if you commute listen to a podcast or audio book on the topic. At the end of the 16 weeks you will know more than 90% of the people in your field. Why? Because no one is doing any reading or studying of their craft.
3. Plan of Action
Create a step-by-step plan. Start by just writing down everything you know you can do right now. Most people can come up with 50 things right away. Start with those things. Prioritize them. Determine how long it will take to do them. Start on these things immediately.
4. Take Action every day
This cannot be overstated. No matter how big or small, do it every day.
5. Believe in yourself
If you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will. You have greatness inside of you. If you have the desire deep within to do it then you can. Don’t understate the power within you to do something great. The world is waiting on your greatness-someone can’t move forward within you.
If you are ready for a change, then you must do something different. Jim Rohn said, “For things to change, you have to change.”
Are you ready to change?
