Tired of living someone else’s agenda?
What I miss least about being “employed” is asking for time off. And chasing co-workers around the City, asking if they would be happy to fill my place while I’m gone.
But, that’s what you sign up for when you work for someone else. It’s okay for some. But it’s not okay if you’re looking to live a life, where:
1. You can take time off when needed (or when you’re having a “twitchy nose day”)
2. You don’t have to answer to anyone (other than your Creator)
3. You only pay taxes on your net income
4. You get to do what you love and get paid for it
5. You don’t have to miss any of your special days ever again
6. Your income is only limited by your thinking
7. You get to live in style and leave behind a decent inheritance
8. You don’t have to worry about any of the menial things such as keeping food on the table, paying the bills etc.
9. You win the love and respect of your Family, the people you serve and the charities you contribute to whilst making a meaningful difference
10. You live a much happier, healthier, and worry free life
So, if all or some of the above appeal to you, here’s how you make the transition:
1. Have a clear vision of what you would like to see in your life ten to two hundred years down the line, in terms of health, relationships, and wealth
It’s never about just improving your financial situation. Besides, what good is money, if you become so overweight and as a result you fell asleep one day and forgot to wake up for good or if all your teeth just fell off as you were brushing your teeth one morning or if your Kids just took off to a nearby habitable planet because you’re never around?
2. Determine your motivation behind the vision
Your vision can’t be just a pretty picture that you can feel warm and fuzzy about while you’re sipping Coffee. No, it has to be something much more. It has to make you jump up and get down and jump all around, every time you think about it.
3. Determine who you have to become to attract the success you desire
The people we’re attracted to in life are a result of who they have sculpted themselves to become, in terms of looks, personality, skills and other traits. So start by identifying a few individuals that portrait and live the life that you’re looking to live. And then find out what they’re doing in the areas that you’re looking to improve. At the same time, bear in mind that not all financially successful individuals have their “sheet” together. They might be doing exceptionally well financially and in their health but their relationships may not look much different to the next Blockbuster Horror Movie. So, model after only their “worthwhile traits”and get your Dog to chew on the rest
4. Always be learning, implementing and integrating the elements that contribute to the person you’re sculpting yourself to be.
5. Find Mentors who are willing to stand by you every step of the way (even in their pajamas) until you bring your dream to fruition
6. Listen to Motivational seminars every day to build the fortitude required to overcome the many hurdles and failures you’ll be faced with from time to time. When you’re starting out, failure and disappointments may be as commonplace as Cats with hairball issues. But it’s only a phase and a test by the Universe to see if you’ve got what it takes.
7. Draw up a plan illustrating everything that needs to be accomplished in order to bring that vision to life. And once you have the plan in place, the right people and resources will supernaturally show up as and when they’re needed.
