There are so many people out there looking to improve their lives in the areas of Personal Development and Wealth Creation. I think that this is a great thing as I really believe that human beings need to keep evolving and developing in order to be happy and feel fulfilled.
What we are seeing right now though is that there are a large amount of people who are flocking to Wealth Creation seminars, not solely with the interest of developing themselves and living at a higher level (which may be deemed as the “carrot” motivation) but it’s because they are in a VERY tough financial position (more of the “stick” motivation) . People are being made redundant or starting to realize exactly what what is happening with their pensions. This makes them NEED to do something about it.
The problem with this situation is that people are motivated by “The Money” that they want to make – and that’s completely understandable and expected, as they HAVE to do something.
The problem comes along where people believe that they are going to learn a strategy that is going to change their lives – and they expect it to happen in the short term.
The fact of the matter is that if you are going to get to where you want to go, any strategy will get you there. Trading the Stock Market, Property Investing, Internet Marketing, Business – they are all viable ways of getting to where you want to go.
The reality of it is that strategy makes up maybe 5% of your success. The rest of the success is going to be made up of how the individual develops into someone who will make those strategy’s successful.
There is no such thing as “Get Rich Quick”.
So, the way I see it is as follows:
Success Stage 1:
We have to work on ourselves first. We have to start developing ourselves.
This will include changing our mindsets from the one that has got us to where we are now into the one that is going to get us to where we want to go. This may also include uncovering limiting beliefs about ourselves and our environment.
We have to be able to condition our minds to focus on goals instead of obstacles of life. We may even need to start associating with different people or be in different environments. From personal experience, I promise you that sometimes you need to get out of a certain environment to make yourself strong before you can go back and help others in that environment…. I could write so much more on this but I know your time is precious 😉
Success Stage 2:
Once we have done some work on ourselves, we need to start doing things that successful people do. We need to start taking the theory of something that we have learnt and put it into practice. This can be a very tough time as there is a GULF of difference between theory and application of anything. This is where we are going to get knock backs, have moments of self doubt, get frustrated, lose momentum…. It all happens here.
Success Stage 3:
Only once we have endured the tough learning curve and perfected the mindset and application of the strategies that we need to, only then, when we keep doing the right thing will we get the result … or the outcome. That’s when we get the outcome that we were keen on. That’s when we get the money. That’s when we get the lifestyle. That’s when we get what we were after.
The above 3 stages can take months or they can take years. More likely, they will take years and the fact of the matter is that success is never a destination, it’s a journey….
The kind of person that you become in order to achieve whatever success you are after is the kind of person who gets addicted to further development – in whatever area you are in. Development and challenges become a part of life and you can get a little uncomfortable when things are too easy. You will always be a person who will be looking for a challenge and will always be moving forward.
If you are a person who is looking to get into Wealth Creation, develop another form of income or build a business, the best guidance and help I can give you is find a route that you are passionate about. As we have mentioned, there are many routes that will get you to where you want to go but Success Stage 2 will be SO much easier if you enjoy what you are doing.
The bottom line is that if people are focused on the outcome (making the money) they don’t get the process right. If you focus on and enjoy the process, you will ultimately get it right and from there, the money will come! 🙂
For all of my brothers and sisters who are on this journey with us at the moment, keep the faith 😉 and PHire it up!! Real proud of you 🙂
Health, Wealth and Happiness.
