14 May You’ve Got to Want it More
For people starting out in wealth building there are many different challenges to be faced. Some think of these challenges as obstacles and those obstacles become excuses for not moving forward. In today’s economy if you’re going to make it you’ve got to want it more than the next guy. Traditional forms of wealth building no longer apply.
Excuses are the brain’s way of sending false messages when something seems too hard. Yes getting started with a Cash Machine business will be hard work but think of the alternative. Do you want to depend on “the man” to take care of you for the rest of your life? Do you want the banks and lenders in control of your finances? Or do you want to be the creator of your own destiny?
People from all walks of life are taking the plunge into entrepreneurialism and for good reason. It’s sink or swim time my friend.
Whatever might be holding you back must be re-examined, addressed and overcome, or you just might be one of those that sink.
So what’s holding you back? The top 5 Excuses
Excuse # 1 “I don’t have the money…”
Give me a break! There’s money all around you. Ok you might be living paycheck to paycheck right now but there’s always something you can do to raise capitol. Who says you have to start your Cash Machine running out of the gates. You might need to pick up some odd jobs or sell off some assets to get your business going. DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO! Want it more. There’s always a way.
Excuse #2 “My spouse will think I’m crazy!”
Individuals and families are often held back by what others might think. Peer and family approval are great but not at all necessary. It’s nice to keep your close family and friends in the loop but ultimately you and only you are the creator of your destiny. Your future rides on your tenacity and courage in times like ours. Think of what you can offer in inspiration alone. Who knows? Your success just might inspire your loved ones to create their own Cash Machine.
Excuse #3 “With my day job I just don’t have the time”
Make time. Period. Much of the initial work in starting a Cash Machine is research, which can be done in your spare time. Once you have a plan in place, it’s time to take a risk. Just go for it. Don’t be afraid to ask for a shorter work week. You’re not likely to get much resistance especially if business is slow. If there’s a will, there is a way.
Excuse #4 “I don’t know what to do”
Everyone has marketable skills and talents. EVERYONE. This is not the time to be hard on yourself. Remember that a Cash Machine normally isn’t your dream job. It’s a business designed to create cash flow fast. Leverage your skills and talents. It’s not rocket science.
Excuse #5 “The economy is too crazy, it’s just bad timing”
I can’t say it enough… economic downturns produce more Millionaires than any other time periods. Xerox, Microsoft, and Disney all started during notable economic crisis. Now, if you were considering a business that has been hit hard in the last few years obviously you’ll need to rethink your strategy. BUT if you’re truly an entrepreneur, you’re thinking of things you can do to offer solutions for companies that are experiencing hard times. It’s now or never.
You’re going to face challenges and opposition with whatever it is you decide to do. Ask yourself how bad you want it and what the consequences will be if you don’t create new money in your life.
P.S. Got something to say?
