Nothing comes easy, so as to becoming a millionaire.
It doesn’t matter where you currently are in your financial situation , whether just starting out or already making lot of money, you still need lots of money.
Most people, no matter what their income, they still need more. As a person’s income rises, so does their spending.
Only Few people understand how to continually increase their income, lifestyle, and enjoy at the same time.
Now, let’s go to how it works
1. Create a wealth vision
The first ever step to take when wanting to have a finacially bouyant life or bring millionaire is to create a vision for yourself.
How much imagination do you have for your future?
Do you see huge potential and possibility for your life?
Or, do you see a pretty average life?
Creating a vision is an iterative process. You don’t just create a vision once and then never look at it again.
You continually create and write your vision every single day.
Consistency and focus matters…
Your attitude, behavior and thinking will change when you begin imagining a different future and stridently strive for it.
Once again, In order accomplish this, you must be 100% consistent, from a psychological perspective, people generally feel the need to be viewed by others as consistent.
Having a vision for your life means you are ready to begin actually living the life you want, according to your vision. It means you’re no longer going to just go with the flow, as you have for most of your life. It means that regardless of what your parents, peers, and social environment have presented to you thus far, you’re going to create the life you want.
The more realistic your vision is, the more better it is for sure attainment and achievement of your set goals.
The brain really love and fancy numbers. These are tangible. Thus, your vision should center around specific numbers and key events.
“I will be making N3,000,000/year by January 1, 2022.”
“I will take a six week vacation in Santorini in the next six months.”
Get excited by it.
The more detailed the vision in your mind, the more believable it will be to you.
As you build confidence through successive, small wins over time, your vision and imagination will expand.
Thus, in order for your vision to become clarified and congruent with your values and genuine desires, you’ll need to start building confidence.
That’s where the next step comes in.
2. Develop a 90-day system for measuring progress/future pacing
Looking back over the past quarter, what are the things that make you the proudest about what you have achieved?”
Now think about this
“What are the five new ‘goal’ you can set and achieve that will make your next 90 days a great quarter regardless of what how rough the road is ?
Every 90 days, you should review the previous 90 days and then set measurable and challenging goals for the next 90 days.
During this session, pull out your journal and take time to reflect on the previous 90 days.
Now ask yourself
What went well?
Your key wins?
Any lessons Learnt in this quarter?
What has you most excited?
Where do you need to pivot?
Every 90 days, when you track progress, you could be increasing your confidence, because confidence comes from watching yourself succeed.
Very few people truly take time to reflect on what they’ve actually achieved. We’re very good at seeing where we’re coming up short. We are less reflective of where we’ve succeeded.
Train your brain to notice, focus, and pay attention to the progress you’re making. When you begin seeing progress, you’ll start to feel excited.
These feelings are very important.
Start setting short-term goals (every 30–90 days), track your progress, count your wins, recover, reset, and start again.
When you have a big vision, you don’t need to make HUGE progress every day. You only need to take a step or two forward daily. You then track that progress and watch as the compounding effects take over.
Every 90 days, track the key areas of your life.
Track your money.
Be Conscious about your health.
Evaluate your time.
Track the progress in the areas you want to succeed.
Being a millionaire isn’t a one day job!
3. Design your environment for clarity, recovery, and creativity
In order to truly upgrade your life, you can’t just set goals, you need to reshape your environment.
You need an environment that matches the future you plan to create
Most people’s set goals, but their environment is like a rushing river, going the opposite direction of where they want to go. Instead, your environment should be set in a way that align with the future you have in view.
No doubt, you should surround yourself with people who inspire you
Different environments have different purposes. You should filter environments for rest and rejuvenation, for focus and work, for meditation and clarity, and for excitement and fun.
When you change a part, you change the whole system. Don’t spoil the whole barrel with one bad apple. Take note, and choose your millionaire minds
4. Identify ideal mentors/partners
Don’t look for a job. Instead, create one!
You create a job by providing opportunities to ideal and creative monds you want to learn from and work with.
Wealthy people work to learn. Poor people work for money.
It is really so easy to get close to just about anyone, but no, start getting closer to people you can learn from and work with.
You develop mentorships and partnerships by being useful. You dedicate your thoughts and efforts to helping them. By helping them, you position yourself in a unique place. They would notice your traits. In this unique new position, making lots of money becomes easy.
5. Focus on “who” instead of “how”
It is pertinent to note that, being a millionaire is not a one man show. Part of becoming a millionaire, or financially successful in whatever way you define that, is by evolving beyond “rugged individualism.”
When random people set goals, they often ask “How do I do this?”. But when your vision expands and your time becomes more valuable, you start asking a different question.
“Who can either do this for me or help me do this?” – That is the question to ask!
Hiring people or even using services like Fiver and digital marketing is so easy these days. There are people all over the world with time and skills who are ready and waiting. Utilize these people.
You may not see yourself as an entrepreneur. And you certainly don’t have to be one. But if you want to start making more money, you’ll need to stop doing everything by yourself.
You need to start building a team. And like everything else, you want to do that before you feel ready. Because in truth, you’re never ready before you start. You’re never pre-qualified to do anything. It is always the leap itself and then working through the process that qualifies you.
You can become a millionaire.
It may take five years. But five years of focused attention on something can take you a really long way.
