“If you don’t find a way to make money in your sleep you’ll work until you die.” – Warren Buffet
Lots of inspirational talkers talk about creating passive income and the mindset around escaping the rat race yet very few explain all the options you have. That’s what we bring you: Choice. With over 70 ways on this site to make money online and offline the only reason to stay poor is simply not to act.
Making money has never been easier or more accessible than it has been in the last decade. That is because you have access to an incredibly powerful tool that allows anyone to make money: The Internet.
Everything you ever wanted to know about nearly anything is available online. The information contained in this site will teach you how to make money and lots of it. But you can have all the knowledge in the world and it doesn’t mean anything unless you act on it.
In order to succeed, you need the correct mindset to achieve results. Inspiration, determination, knowledge and motivation are all vital. But these things by themselves aren’t enough, habits are key. If you want financial freedom first you need an idea, of which there are plenty on our site. But most people fail because they don’t get into the productive habits for success. They start to take action but then give up somewhere on the path to success. Les Brown explains how persistence of productive habits can lead to success in the story of the Chinese Bamboo Tree.
For instance, if you want to make a full time income through blogging it is possible because it has been done by countless thousands of people already. You can learn how to do it with the information available online and in books. So if all the information and knowledge is there, how come so many people can’t do it? It’s down to persistence. The way to persist is by having a goal and creating productive habits. There is a lot involved in building a blog around a niche, creating content which may involve months of writing articles and promoting your blog. Somewhere along the line most people give up. However if you persist, keep learning and create productive habits every single day, you will succeed. Get into the habit of writing a new article for your blog every day and don’t give up after a few weeks or months just because you haven’t seen results yet. If you don’t think you can write that much content, then get someone else to do it. It is easier than ever to outsource just about anything you need to do.
“The concept is simple. Execution is where people fail. Succeed with productive habits.” – www.make-cash.biz
But whatever you do, get into the productive habits early and soon it will become a routine you barely think about. There are three things that will aid you in sustaining those habits:
Firstly, give yourself a clear goal to aim for and a date to achieve it by. This will allow you to create smaller tasks that you need to achieve in order to reach your goal. These are the tasks that you will create productive habits around. Your goal could be a financial amount you want to make every single month through passive income, it could be to reach a certain number of readers on your blog or to sell a certain number of copies of you book. Whatever it is make a clear concise goal which is specific and has a time frame to achieve it by. An example could be I want to be making £2000 per month in passive income by this date in three years time. So in order to do that you might decide to write a blog about gardening tips and to grow the readers to 50,000 subscribers and then you can generate £2000 a month in advertising revenue. You have your goal of £2000 a month and then you break your steps down into smaller tasks further. Your productive habits could be to spend one hour every day writing a blog post and one hour promoting or outsourcing the promotion of your blog.
Secondly, know the reason you are doing it, this is your “Why?”. Why you are investing the time doing what you do to make money and making the sacrifice when you could be doing other things. It is the bigger picture, the long term goal, the purpose of it all. This could be something like to be able to give your family a better quality of life, to never have to worry about paying the bills again, to free up time so that you can enjoy your life rather than going to a job you hate, or to be able to help others in need. Whatever your is write it down and read it every day to make it clear in your mind. It will help motivate you to continue with your habit on those days you don’t feel like completing the necessary tasks required.
Thirdly and probably most importantly in order to create productive habits, it is absolutely vital that you enjoy what you do. No matter how much money you make, if you don’t enjoy it there is a high probability you will fail before you reach your goal. Or worse still you are miserable doing it. You don’t want to spend every day feeling miserable. If you do not enjoy what you are doing then either find something else or make sure you have such a strong reason “Why” you are doing it and a clear goal which ultimately you will enjoy that it will allow you to persist through times where you lack motivation.
Some of the richest and most successful people on the planet read hundreds of books and they never stop learning or teaching themselves. They have the same amount of the hours in the day as the rest of us but they have habits such as waking up at 6am every day or setting aside one hour a day to read. After a year they’ve spent 365 hours reading. They never give up regardless of failures and set backs. They keep going no matter what.
If you want to succeed, change your mindset, ignore the negative people that tell you it can’t be done, get into productive habits, persist and succeed.
