Do you wonder what sets apart those who have and those who have not? Let me show you the secrets of a millionaire mind and how you can get there too.
You will be amazed at how simple it is. Only three steps to change your mindset to one of abundance and set yourself on the path to becoming a millionaire.
On your death bed what must you have achieved in your life for you to die happy?
Some people might consider this a bit of a morbid question but I feel it is one that very clearly determines what your life mission is.
Without clearly determining this life mission you will most likely find yourself in conflict as you strive to reach what ever goal you "think" you need to reach. Without knowing what your life mission is you may find your daily activities are working against you, causing internal conflict and inevitably sapping you of the motivation you need to succeed.
Millionaires are very clear on their life purpose and more than that they are so passionate about it that they do not allow anything to sway them from reaching it.
Once you determine your life purpose you will become like a great and powerful river. The ebbs and flows of daily life will happen but you will remain steadfast in your direction towards your purpose.
If you are one of the lucky ones who has determined your life purpose then you can skip to Step 2 but if not let’s give you some pointers below to start you on the road to a purposeful life.
Don't freak out on me now, even though this seems like a huge step, it is fun and you will be amazed at the enthusiasm and direction it brings you once you know what your here to do.
It may not reveal "the ultimate meaning of life as we know it", but on an individual basis it sure is close.
Dr. Trevor Blattner of The Top 1% website describes these as the core values that you want your life to have represented when you’re no longer among the living. I know, sorry about this, but just a little more deep and meaningful life and death discussion.
To find your life mission you first need to determine the 5 eulogy values that you live your day to day life by, your core values that guide your decisions not only in business but in all aspects of your life.
Below are 146 words to give you some inspiration to choose your own 5 core values:
Being the Best
Making a Difference
Now that you have chosen your top 5 don’t panic that you may not be fulfilling those values yet. This is your future we are talking about.
As long as they ring true to you and they truly are what you aspire to be you will keep them in the forefront of all your actions moving forward. Job done!
Back to your life purpose. Keeping your new core values in mind ask yourself the question again “What must I have achieved in my life to die happy?
Once you have determined your answer, you will work towards that end, and success both financially, spiritually and emotionally will follow.
By stepping back from the money and focusing on your true meaning abundance in the form of happiness, contentment and wealth will come.
We have all heard the stories of people winning lotto and then squandering it all until they were once again broke – they had no life purpose.
And we have also heard the stories of entrepreneurs who made millions and then lost it all, only to build back up bigger, faster and stronger than ever. They had a life purpose.
Millionaires have a solid plan – you need one too.
From the answer to the question above you should have a few ideas coming to mind on how to go about fulfilling your life mission.
You should be excited at the prospect, if you are not then you haven't pinpointed your life mission. You may be skirting around the edges but once you have it you will be empowered and motivated.
Take some time an elaborate on each one of those ideas or thoughts and turn them into usable goals. If you are not sure how we have you covered, check out our Goal Setting blog here.
Don’t worry at this point about making them realistic. Never limit your life mission to what you think is achievable. The goals that fall out of your brainstorming initially do not need to be backed up with a HOW?
The How will come but first you must be suitably inspired by your goals.
They may be lofty long term goals and if so spend some time to break them down into at least 6 and 12 month goals that will work you towards achieving your life mission.
Everything you do from now onward in the process of achieving success and millionaire status, must be driven towards achieving the individual goals that make up your overall purpose.
Anything else is a waste of your time.
By setting a solid well thought out plan to become successful, and preparing yourself to win by working on that plan every day, you will become the success story you crave.
“If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much”. Jim Rohn
Don’t leave your planning to someone else. Find goals that motivate you to get out of bed every morning and work your butt off to achieve them.
OK this is the part that separates the wanna be’s from the millionaires. You must take action on those goals.
And massive action at that.
Lots of people dream, plan and some even get to the point of preparing to win but they never take action.
All the most successful people you can think of have a life purpose, they have a plan to get there and they take massive action to move themselves towards that success.
This is the 10x Rule in action and it is easy to apply to your own life.
Think about the average person, no not you your a superstar, the average person who maybe working towards the same goal as you.
Let’s take my goal as an example - I want to earn $10,000 each month from my online affiliate business.
The average person working towards this goal may produce one blog a month – I produce 10 or more. I make 10 times the effort they do and I will be successful while they fall by the wayside.
In a sales scenario your average salesperson may call 5 people a day, imagine how much more successful they would be if they called 50 people per day!
Average effort equals average results – I don’t know about you but I’m a little over being average.
If you have a life purpose that truly motivates you it is not a chore to put in 10x the effort and I can guarantee you will see the success you are after and you will be well above average.
Procrastination kills more dreams than any other vice.
To build a millionaire mind you must start and there is no better time than now.
Don’t just read this blog and move on. Commit to taking action now, don’t waste another day, time is the one thing you can not get back. Don’t allow your time to tick by being mediocre.
Work your way through the 3 steps and you will be well on your way to developing a millionaire mind that will see you achieve every goal you can dream of and attain the success you deserve.
I had to include just one more video in this blog which provides further perspective on developing a wealth mindset.
Jim Rohn's techniques for building wealth, mixed with his own brand of humour, make for great listening, and will contribute greatly to your personal growth on the path to making a million.
