I’ve been working with quite a diverse group of people and businesses lately.
The people I’ve been working with have been great…
They’re smart, motivated, and have huge goals and aspirations.
But many of them have been making mistakes that are keeping them from achieving
the goals and financial independence they want.
And in some cases… these mistakes are keeping them BROKE.
So I’ve decided to list five common mistakes that keep even smart people broke.
Here they are…
1.Not deciding how much money they want to make.
Did you ever see those TV programmes where a camera crew goes up to someone’s front door, rings the bell, and a shocked housewife opens the door to receive her over sized £100,000 cheque?
Well guess what? That doesn’t happen very often (surprise, surprise).
If you want more dinero you have to make the DECISION that you’re going to make it…
And not just do what most people do and WAIT around for it.
2. Getting things “just right” before taking action.
I know several BRILLIANT folks who do this all the time and it drives me CRAZY.
Look. There is no such thing as a perfect plan, and the timing is never going to be “just right.”
The best course of action is simply to GET STARTED and make corrections along the way.(Kaizen)
If your beliefs and values aren’t working together then you are going to face some serious inner
conflicts. And inner conflicts and money go together like Marmite and Jam.
Those who succeed discover the negative beliefs that aren’t working for them and change those
4.Trying to do it all on their own.
Talk about a recipe for BURNOUT. If you’re trying to do everything on your own then you’re facing
a slow and frustrating battle.
A better idea is to find people who have already achieved what you want to achieve and uncover
their beliefs and values. You can then model the behavior that has made them successful.
You may need to stump up some cash for this but if you find the right person it’s a great
5.Not having a clear plan.
It’s going to be next to impossible to take action if you don’t know what to do first.
Not having a plan leads to procrastination and overwhelm. (Do you recognise that?)
Create a plan and get started (even if the plan isn’t perfect).
Rather than getting it RIGHT, get it GOING!
