Do You View Money Properly?

Here is some words of wisdom on money from someone who has lots:

Here is the quote from Sir Richard Branson:

MONEY. The main thing about money is it gives you freedom. Freedom to do with your life what you choose rather than what others choose to make you do. Freedom to find the best way to sort the problem out if a family member is ill. Freedom to make a difference in the world. Money in itself is not that interesting.

How to Develop Detailed Goals

You have probably been told to set goals in the past, but did you get any guidance on how?

Remember that the more detailed your goals are, the better you will follow them.
Put in information on all facets of your life with as many details as you can think of:

  • what does it look like?
  • how does smell?
  • how does it feel?
  • what sounds are associated with it?
  • can you taste it?

bulls-eyeNot all of these will be a part of each item, but use as many as you can with each one.
The more time you put into setting your goals, the more you will get out of them.
Review your goals regularly and add to them if a new idea about what you desire hits you. Keep it as a living document to be added to and modified as your life changes.

Be Prepared for the Unexpected

Most people just accept their lot in life. They believe that they have to just live with whatever inconveniences and unpleasantness are associated with earning a living.
These can include being away from your family for extended periods, having a tough commute, a company that does not pay you as much as you need, and even unfairness or hostility of various kinds.
carpenterSome people are able to work in a field and for a company of their own choosing, others have to take whatever they can get nowadays. If you are fortunate enough to have a good job it is hoped that you will be able to keep it, but that is often not the case.
We have all witnessed through the various recessions, that even in companies that appear to be doing well, they will be forced to ‘reorganize’ or ‘downsize’.  Often people who have been doing an excellent job are let go for no other reason than cost-cutting of some kind.
Whether or not it is expected, and it usually isn’t, being ‘let go’ is a shocking situation. One side of your brain will tell you not to worry, you will find another job. The other half will have doubts, having heard stories of highly educated and experienced people being unable to find work.
abacusSomewhere in the middle your brain is doing calculations on how much money you have saved, benefits, insurance, etc., and how long that will ‘tide you over’.  You are in disaster mode no matter how you look at it.
If this has ever happened to you then you will understand the reality of being prepared for the unexpected.  One very good way to prepare is to start your own business working from home in your spare time.
If you have developed a plan and executed as much of it as you could, you will be in a better position to ‘land on your feet’.  At least you have some idea of ways to make money on your own, and have done some research and planning and you won’t feel completely disoriented.
Right off the bat, if you suddenly find yourself in the position of no job to go to, you will start saving money.  Believe it or not.
When you stop to calculate how much it costs you to go to work, including child care, transportation, grooming, eating your meals out, etc., you will start to realize the money that is staying in your pocket by not going to work.
In this same regard, you will not miss the stress of living by the clock, starting from the blaring alarm in the morning, rushing around to get ready on time, and battling the aggravation of traffic jams and delays.  Your life is your own now.
It’s okay to compromise to a certain degree, but it is equally important to be happy. Stress is very bad for not only your health but your important relationships may suffer because you are ‘not yourself’ if you are miserable with your life.
calculator-pen-sheetAlthough you do need to have some structure to have a home business, it is on your own terms. If you feel like working at midnight you can.  You can spend your days out of doors or doing something that you enjoy, as long as you make a commitment to yourself that you will work for a reasonable period of time to accomplish what is necessary to earn a living.
Keep in mind that we spend the greater part of our lives working. It is important to feel good about what we are doing. So choose a business that gives you satisfaction and you can be proud of.
So make sure to make a real effort to create an environment for yourself that is secure, peaceful and free!

Broaden Your Scope When Making Comparisons

People tend to look at those in their immediate group when making comparisons. This can often lead to incorrect conclusions.

In an interview with the author Malcolm Gladwell about his latest book “David and Goliath”, he mentions some statistics about university dropout rates. He notes that the statistics are the same for regular and elite universities.
disapproveIt turns out that people compare themselves to those in their immediate entourage when deciding the level of their competence. So someone who makes it into an elite college feels like they cannot understand the material if they end up in the bottom third of their class.
This is obviously not true. They just can’t grasp it as quickly as their immediate peers. Compared to other people, they are still capable and intelligent enough to get through, but they give up because they convince themselves of this deficiency.
The same can be said for just about anything in life. We tend to compare ourselves to those who excel at whatever endeavour we are trying.
We should be looking at overall information not the data on the top echelon of people.
If you truly believe that what you are doing is the true way to succeed, then you should find a way to do it that suits your capabilities. Don’t give up no matter what the others around you are doing.
