The first step toward creating Richer thinking comes from having a big enough WHY!! The second step is, wait for it..Obsession…
Normally when people talk about this word obsession, they tend to talk about it in a negative way.. After all, thoughts of obsession conjure up things like Gambling, Alcohol, Stalking, Drugs, etc..
Isn’t obsession some kind of madness?
Well, yes and no.
Sometimes, you need to become obsessed with things before you can create the laser focus that you need to get stuff done. Riches are not created by accident.. Always remember, Money, Success, whatever you think of as success, will never just walk up to you and slap you on the back..
You have to go to it.
Learn to get comfortable with obsessing over what you want.
And, most importantly, success at anything is not for the faint-hearted. It’s much easier, far, easier to stay where you are now. Success means disruption and many people don’t like that. The problem is of course is that life outside your world is always changing and by you standing still and staying where you are often results in you fighting with the forces of nature..
For many, life is getting harder & more expensive. Most people are only a couple of paychecks away from being broke. did you know that 11.5% of Americans (37.9 Million people) live in poverty, and this is in the richest country in the world. You can imagine how bad the worldwide figures are.
Although overall child poverty is down, more and more people are being driven into debt by rising food and fuel prices.
Most Successful Entrepreneurs are 100% obsessed with what they do. It’s about creating opportunities, not waiting for them to come to you. And this really is the hardest part, creating a strain of thinking that is more powerful than your procrastination. I hate to say this but your bank account is at the level of your current thinking.
The Art Of Rich Thinking
Ok, we know the first step..have a BIG why!.. 2nd step, get obsessed. So, you know your why and it’s big, you’re obsessed and now you’re chomping at the bit to get started..
Let me remind you, this where doubt often creeps in. You get all excited about starting “X” then you think about it and think about it some more… maybe you speak to someone, perhaps a friend or work colleague as you want confirmation that what you’re about to do is the right thing… BUT, they weren’t so keen, they think your idea SUCKS!.. BOOM, the shine comes off, your’e deflated, the excitement has gone. You abort lift off and go back to square one..
All because someone who’s never done what you want to do didn’t like the idea..
Another idea bites the dust… ⚰️
My first piece of advice would be to NEVER, ever ask people “what they think” if THEY themselves are not an expert in “X”, don’t ask their advice. Remember, there are lots of broke people out there on the Interent telling people how to get rich.
OK, back to the plan.
Obsession needs to have legs, when you are fearful and you obsess about the WRONG things, you are fearful and you procrastinate NOW!!, You have to apply that instantaneous movement to when you get excited and obsessed about something positive.
In other words. Start (the thing) now. Just the first step…
Starting anything, seems to be the hardest part of the journey. The reason for this is because it’s a step into the unknown and that for many is scary. My advice to you here is to DO IT SCARED. Get used to being uncomfortable. Being comfortable in life, although it sounds good on paper, is rarely a good thing as it makes us complacent. This is why half the time, we don’t do the things we should.
Pleasure And Pain
Life is made up of pleasure and pain. Some days will be pleasurable, some will be painful, What is important, is that we learn from the pain and always keep working on moving forward to minimise pain in the future. For example, more money nearly always equals less pain. Better health equals less pain. Although some elements of life are unpredictable, most of it can be improved by our own hand.
It works in reverse too. If you obsess about things going wrong, they often will. It’s like a magnet, you draw bad things to you as well as good things..
So, get obsessed. Get obsessed with the results you want. If you want more money then get obsessed with making it. And although I’m talking about obsession, I’m not talking about doing it to the detriment of your health and/or family. But remember what I said earlier, you will experience disruption if you want to grow.
The more you focus on your goal, the more likely you are to achieve it.
It’s not unusual to see obsession at the forefront of society. People obsess about work, TV, personal relationships etc. Spend time obsessing about positive things like getting your Sh*t together and going large. You can’t expect to make a big impact by acting small.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked people what they want and they say something obscure like “ I just want to make more money” This is like trying to hit the bullseye while you are blindfolded.
The Law of Attraction works in mysterious way, but one thing is for sure, you can’t attract something that you can’t name. Knowing that you want to make money is only a small part of the puzzle. How much do you want, and when?. The next thing is how are you going to do it?. If you don’t have a plan, you’re already planning to fail.
Planning To Win
Know EXACTLY how much you want. The money is already out there, it’s your job to go out and get it, nothing is impossible, don’t fear making large amounts of money, people do it everyday, people like you. The Internet is full of advice. Some good, some bad. My advice would be to listen and learn from people who are actually doing what you want to do.
Not everyone selling courses on the internet is actually making money from what’s in their course. Some are, but not all. Be choosy who you listen to.
You want to be original, originality is what sells, if you’re just a carbon copy of someone else, you won’t create the flow and excitement to inspire others to buy from you, and remember, get yourself out there. The most common reason for failure on the internet apart from procrastination is just not getting yourself out there.
Even if you own the best brand in the world, you still need to market it to people. Why do you think Coca Cola has so much advertising around the World when they already have the No1 Cola brand?Quite simply, people have to be constantly reminded that you are there, that you are the best at what you do. The internet is your shop window to show off what you do. Use it, every day.
Plan each day, every day. Before you go to bed at night, write out what you will get done tomorrow. Start with the hardest task first, do this first, early on, get it out of the way, this makes the day flow better from there.
So , there you have it
Know your why
Know EXACTLY what you want. No half-measures.
Start – Do it scared. Do it BEFORE the doubt starts to creep in
Get yourself out there. Daily. The internet is your shop window
Keep going. Life is both pleasure and pain, learn from the pain and work on reducing it.
SIDENOTE: Don’t beat yourself up if you make mistakes. Mistakes are good, they teach us what not to do. We are all human and we all have flaws. Improve on yours.
