Creating your own fortune means building a personal economy that is not tied to current events. This is the primary reason why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, regardless of the current market and economic conditions.
Regardless of what is happening around you, there are opportunities that you can grab that will allow you to build the life you’ve been dreaming of.
Here are six things that you should do that will help improve your personal economy regardless of what’s happening around you:
1. Think big.
Most people settle for less. They think small. They think that success is only available to an elite and exclusive club. They are wrong.
Start thinking big regardless if things around you are going good or bad. Find big problems to solve, big opportunities to grab, big ideas to work on.
Little effort produces little results.
2. Reduce your timeframe.
Shrink down the time you need to accomplish your goals by eliminating unnecessary things on your calendar. Take advantage of every available time you can use to get closer to your goals. Sure, it is important to rest, relax, and recover, but don’t use this as an excuse to do things that will only waste your valuable time.
3. Fill your calendar.
Keep your calendar and pipeline full. Don’t rely on one customer, one client, one appointment. Create plenty of opportunities to increase your chances of achieving your own success.
4. Stay sharp and focused.
We live in the age of misinformation. The only way to stay ahead of your game is to keep yourself sharp through constant self-improvement and avoiding distractions that could derail you from achieving the goals you set for yourself.
5. Follow where the money is.
Motivational gurus will tell you to hustle and to do it hard. But hustling on the wrong opportunity will yield minimal results. Stop, step back, and find where the money is. Is it in finance? Is it in real estate? Is it in sales and marketing? Wherever it is, always follow the money.
6. Stack, pack, repeat.
Earn, keep, grow. This is the not-so-secret formula of the most successful people in the world. They find ways to increase their income. Then they keep most of it. And finally, they find ways to grow their hard-earned money.
It is easy to rely on a single source of income, like a salary. Salary makes us feel safe. But like what the coronavirus pandemic showed us, no salary, no job, no business is safe. To mitigate this risk, build multiple streams of income, keep as much as you can, and put it in income-producing assets.
Putting it all together.
If you want to build a massive fortune for yourself and your loved ones, start by expanding your horizon. Think big. Big problems and opportunities present big rewards.
Once you find a big problem to solve or a big opportunity to grab, get your calendar, and make sure that you dedicate every available time that you can get in expanding your personal economy. Keep your calendar full of activities, appointments, and other things that will get you closer to your goal. It is important to rest, but be aware of time-wasters.
And lastly, stay informed and focused so that you can avoid distractions that will only impede your progress. Don’t waste your time doing things that will only produce minimal results. Instead, go where the money is, keep as much as possible, and make it grow.
