I’ve been asking myself over the last few days, if I had a $100,000 a month business, what would I be doing right now / today / this week? How would my life look different?
I’m pretty good at generating money when I need it, I’m not so crash hot at being consistent. I LOOK as though I’m being consistent and productive and focused, but I know I’m not. I know that if I was focused, I’d achieve way more in a much shorter space of time than I do right now.
And I know that I can because I’ve done it before.
So, if I had a $100,000 a month business right now, what would I be doing each day?
Would I be cooking for everyone? Well, actually, yes I would, because I enjoy cooking for everyone. I don’t like cleaning up but I’ve managed to enrol my husband & kids into doing that: I cook, they clean. It seems to be working and while the kids might not be happy about cleaning up, they don’t really mind.
Would I be spending time on FB? Yes, but it would be with a purpose: to answer comments/questions, to interact. It’s so easy to spend several hours just scrolling through FB, looking at what other people are doing.
Would I be exercising and putting aside time for doing things that I enjoy every day? Definitely. I haven’t been doing that much, lately, either, which is probably why I feel so drained and why I’m sick now.
I KNOW when I’m not doing what I ought to be doing because I feel irritable and cranky.
What are your goals for your life & your finances? Where do you want to be in 6 or 12 months? What does financial independence look like for you? If you haven’t worked that out already, do so right now.
Then look at your average current day: when you have reached the point you want to reach, what will your day look like? What will you be doing? How will it be different to what you’re doing right now? What WOULDN’T you be doing that you’re doing right now? What do you need to do NOW that will get you to where you want to be? What is ESSENTIAL to your future success? Looking back from that future, what do you need to do RIGHT
NOW to make that success inevitable?
Go and do it. If you’re serious about changing your money situation, go and do it.
