Overview

Here are just a few tips to success:

Getting Past Fear of Failure
Being afraid of failure is a normal emotion for every person
on the planet. How you get past that fear is the determining
factor between failing and succeeding. You can do that by
setting realistic goals and then examining those goals on
occasion to do any necessary realignment. Above all, believe
in yourself and the desire burning within that you can
achieve it.
Make Opportunities
Rather than wait for money opportunity to find you, you
need to find money opportunities. This might be watching for
business opportunities in the paper regarding small
businesses being sold, great real estate opportunities, and
investments with stocks, bonds, or mutual funds, taking a
talent and turning it into an entrepreneurial adventure.
People that have reached financial status will tell you that
they look for ways to seize opportunities, not wait for
opportunities to come knocking on their door because it will
not happen that way.
Make the Best of Each Day
Try to live every day as though it were your last. Make the
most of every day and accomplish something. Even if it is
something small, every baby step adds up to a huge success
in the end.
Have a Plan
Even if it is flimsy to begin with, you should construct a plan
to include goal, milestones, deliverables such as contracts,
business plans, etc., and accomplishments. This will provide
you with a visual as to what you are working for, what
milestones you have successfully met, and where you need
to do better.
Seek Input
Whatever your idea of to make money, conduct a “sanity
check” throughout the process of reaching your goal. This
should be done with someone you trust and who is
themselves successful. Ask them to provide honest feedback
about your success and as you move through different
milestones, bounce concerns or new ideas off them to help
keep you on the right track.
Stay Motivated
When striving for the big goal of success to make more
money in life, it is critical to stay motivated. Find inspiring
and motivational tapes, seminars, books, movies; whatever
you are able to get your hands on. When you start to feel a
little down and out and doubt starts to creep in, turn to these
motivational tools to help you keep on track. A few excellent
motivators include Tony Robbins, Norman Vincent Peale, Jim
Rohn, Zig Ziglar, and Les Brown.
Don’t Settle
If you have a goal of making one million dollar and you know
you have both desire and skill, do not just settle to make one
hundred thousand only. While that may be good training
ground, do not allow yourself to lose sight of your ultimate
goal.
No Excuses
Many famous actors, music artists, inventors, etc., had
special challenges ranging from learning disabilities to
physical disabilities. Take Beethoven for example. He was
born deaf yet he went on to be one of the world’s greatest
composers or Joni Erickson who was paralyzed from the neck
down yet she learned to paint with her mouth. Today, her
paintings are famous around the world and worth millions. If
you are faced with a special challenge of your own when you
are trying to make more money, while you may have to
adjust things from time to time, do not use excuses. If you
want something bad enough, there is a way!
Patience and Dues
Succeeding to make more money takes time. A goal worth
setting will take time to achieve. Be patient with yourself,
the people around you, and the process it takes to become
successful, also referred to as “paying your dues.” Pay your
dues by learning and working your way up the ladder to
success.
Be Thankful
You need to be thankful for not only your accomplishments
but also your failures. Having a grateful attitude is
important. It will help you stay humble, which in turn, will
help you continue striving for the ultimate in success.
Focus on Something you Like
To increase your chance of succeeding to make money, you
should concentrate your efforts on something you enjoy.
When you start out, make a list of everything you find
interesting. Then in a second column, write down the skills
you have in relation to each of those items. This will help you
narrow choices down based on interest and skill, which gets
you started in the right direction for success in making
money!
