Don’t Allow Your Finances To Become A “Junk Drawer”
Opening the kitchen “junk drawer” trying to find a pair of scissors can be frustrating. Many kitchen “junk drawers” are filled with things that are for one-day-when-I-need-this or items that don’t really have a specific home. We throw them into the “junk drawer”, close the drawer and hide the disorganization behind the drawer knob.
Many times, our finances behave the same way. We sometimes keep our receipts & sometimes we lose them. If we keep the receipts, they start to pile up on the desk. When you need it again, the ink has faded away with time. Sometimes it’s so bad that you can’t find a folder you stuck somewhere when quickly cleaning […]
As this season provides opportunities to reflect, I want you to think about YOUR EVERYDAY DECISIONS.
What kind of thoughts are you thinking?
What kind of choices are you making?
Are you taking action?
If not, let’s try to identify what could be hindering your ability to attract wealth. Every decision we make is based on some kind of declaration we have made to ourselves. Thus, we have agreed with the logic or emotion of the thought and therefore, we create an alliance with it.
You Are What You Think
You may have had an experience where a teacher or parent or friend implied you’re not good enough to have more success than them. If you agreed with that statement, you may be feeling guilty for wanting […]
When you are considering getting into investments, always remember that “Cash flow is King.” What exactly is cash flow? It’s when you are making money without you physically needing to work for it. Who doesn’t want more of that, right?
There are 4 basic asset classes to consider when investing: real estate, business, stocks, and commodities. Three of the four can bring cashflow or passive income.
The Real Estate “Work Hard” Approach
Flipping houses looks much easier on TV. Many TV show celebrities have made their fortunes creating shows demonstrating how to buy a property, fixed it up and sell it at a considerable profit. Many new investors who consider getting into real estate start by purchasing an ugly house, try to […]
Passion is the driving force that brings success. In all our decisions, there is a variety of motivation and intensities. But when passion kicks in, it’s the one thing that makes us want to “leap out of bed in the morning” and begin the day with purpose. Moreover, dedication begins long before you see a profitable dollar. It’s an attitude that ignores distractions and bashes through obstacles with flexibility and end-goal-strategy. That is because passion is a force with the power to propel you forward. Passion leads to attracting wealth!
An opposite emotion, fear, is notorious for suppressing passion. Fear has an equally powerful effect on your thinking, words, and actions. Fear brings up “what if” scenarios and old mindsets that […]
As you choose to step into this new world of attracting wealth, it is imperative you surround yourself with the right people. You cannot possibly know everything about everything. To streamline your way to success, invest in your greatest asset – YOU – and hire the expertise of a coach or mentor who has done what you want to do. Hiring your mentor or coach requires a delicate relationship balance. You must be willing to learn from them, and they must be ready to guide you.
A mentor is someone you should trust
Free advice is precisely that: Free. It doesn’t cost you anything to hear it. Free advice requires nothing for someone to give it. It usually has little value. Therefore, you want to invest in a coach […]
Everyone making an income will fall into one of the four categories of earners. Each one is earning money, but which will build wealth? Which will be able to create the life they desire? Let’s look at how each of us fits into one of these categories:
Employee: This is the person that has a job and chooses to work for other people. They trade their time for money.
Self-employed: This person works for themselves – They make their schedule & dictate terms for earning an income. They own their jobs, and their role needs them to be successful. They find themselves stuck in the day-to-day operations of the business.
Business owners: This person is the visionary. Therefore, they have created processes and systems so the business creates profits without them […]
I always say that the easiest way to become wealthy is to do what rich people do. And, it’s simple. Rich people don’t stay in a job for many decades. They don’t get buried in their business. Rather, they invest in themselves and education which ultimately leads them to success.
Traditional Schooling Doesn’t Teach About Passive Income
Most students in public schools today do not gain the financial education they need to be successful. In fact, many people who want to be investors do not have the know-how to be successful. But, wealthy people take the time to invest in themselves first. They learn to invest in education specifically in real estate, business, stock, and commodities so that their decisions can create multiple streams of […]
When you’re embarking upon a new adventure, it is of the utmost importance for you to find individuals who have experience doing what you want to do – mentors that can demonstrate exactly what needs to be done for success and attaining greater wealth attraction.
Having a mentor is one of the absolute greatest ways to be able to see and hear others’ experiences as an entrepreneur, small business owner, or real estate investor. Who better to advocate and provide advice and leadership; while also being able to understand exactly what pitfalls to avoid? A mentor will be able to completely understand the type of accomplishments that you want to obtain.
The ideal mentor can:
Lay the foundation for a rewarding path […]
Change. It’s a scary word. It implies resisting what is comfortable and moving into unfamiliar territory to welcome change. In fact, in my coaching experience, I find many business entrepreneurs struggle with the change process. In fact, it isn’t easy to overcome years of pre-existing beliefs that are the cause of years of comfort walls we build around our lives. But, how your mind thinks is what you become. Change begins with your mind. Like Henry Ford said, ‘Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right!”
I had to choose to welcome change.
When I was going through change and looking for success after my divorce, one of the things I did is I worked very closely […]
For many of us, our idea of hard work, success, and happiness live together. We have memories of our parents saying that if we work hard and become successful, we will be happy. In fact, the relationship between happiness and success has become so ingrained that, even to imagine an alternative seems ridiculous.
But, what if this type of thinking is wrong, and our parents have the chicken before the egg?
What if we could challenge the old concept and begin with happiness as the key ingredient to our success?
Psychologists around the world are working on groundbreaking studies into the relationship between happiness and success. Their studies look at how happiness and success promote and enhance each other. In the field of positive […]
