15 Nov Who Do You Want to Be?
Remember when you were a kid – full of hopes, dreams and imagination? What did you want to be? When I was a kid, it wasn’t a stretch to dream about being a millionaire. Playing “pretend” millionaire was as easy as breaking out the Monopoly game and starting an empire. Remember when it was so easy and fun to start a lemonade stand, “hire” your friends to work with you and have fun buying candy with the profits?
It’s a little sad how that mindset changes over time. Kids have no objections or hang ups. Adults have to vote on everything. They need their pro and con lists to make decisions and end up in analysis paralysis. The conversations evolves from “what do you want to be” to “who do you want to work for” because the pro and con lists say that working for someone else is the safer thing to do. Instead of being the person you want to be and having the life of your dreams, adults vote to settle, find a nice “stable” job and let their company worry about retirement. You may think that this pattern is low-risk. It’s not! Entrusting your future to someone else is about the riskiest thing you can do! This pattern is a dream killer and it is far from a millionaire maker.
I’m known for making everyday people quite wealthy. The Millionaire Maker Game helps you find your sequencing while allowing you to role play as one of the families I have helped. It teaches you the lessons of wealth creation that I taught them in a unique and fun way. The game takes us back to a time of “playing pretend,” but it has the very real result of building essential money-making skills to help you think and act like the wealthy do and create your cash machine. This way, you don’t have to fall into the rut that is being a non-trepreneur (a non-entrepreneur). Or, if you are working for someone else, it gives you the tools you need to plan your “freedom day.” It transforms you from depending on others for your destiny to being the queen or king of your own micro-economy – one that you have complete control over. How is THAT for security?
Ultimately, we work our entire lives toward the same finish line: to stop working. But what if you could Do Less and Make More? Would you fire your boss? How much do you have to make to have your freedom day?
In order to Do Less and Make More, we need to change our thinking and start asking ourselves two questions.
1) Who are we?
2) Who do we want to be?
Dare to dream that the “who” you want to be is a wealthy person and then empower yourself by thinking and acting like one.
By establishing where you are now and where you want to go, you can draw a roadmap to get there. This roadmap is laid out in a simple equation in my next bestselling book, Yes! Energy. The equation isn’t as much a math problem as it is a memory device you can use to change the conversations you are having about money. The goal is to tap into your Yes! Energy— the infinite supply of extreme optimism and energy you need to be who you want to be.
Today, just rewind your mindset a bit and allow yourself to dream again. Our Free 5-Day Yes! Energy Boot Camp is a great way to dip your toe in the waters and tap into that positive energy that will create wealth for you! Go on… dream….
