Are you sure you have identified and are focussing on the one most important thing in your life?
Posted May 11, 2009on:
You have done your goals. You have read all the motivational books by Tony Robbins, Zig Ziglar, Datuk Dr. Fadzilah Kamsah and others. You have done detailed plans on how you are going to achieve your goals. You have intense and passionate desire. Yet you find yourself in a rut.
And that’s the problem that most people face. You see, often many of our goals are self conflicting.
You may want to spend more time with your children or may want to travel the world. But you need to get that new promotion at the office so that you can earn enough to do so – and that means actually spending less time with your children and working longer hours to get it.
This is a dilemma, so many of us face. So what should we do?
We are advised to prioritise our goals. Identify the one thing that is most important or has the most impact and achieve that. Then we move on to the next one and so on. The issue with this approach because if you do that, you’ll invariably end up distracted by all your other desires, which are still there!
Let’s look at a more practical and workable solution.
If you very honestly look at all your goals, they are most likely to fall into the following two parts:
1. The need to make more money to be able to afford more items or a better lifestyle
2. The need for more free time to be able to pursue your interests, whatever they may be
Both these intense needs may seem counterproductive. If you remember our earlier example above, it really is the same thing all over again because the common assumption is that to make more money, you need to spend more time making that money.
All you need is to embrace an action that allows you to have both – and then devote yourself fully to it. Because you should now understand that with the right kind of action, you’re going to be getting your every desire, you should have nothing left standing in your way.
The key is to put our heart and soul and all our resources into creating a strong source of passive income.
Passive income can be created in a number of ways.
– building up a portfolio of shares / bonds from which we derive a stream of dividend income,
– building up a portfolio of properties from which we derive a stream of rental income,
– writing a song or a book and getting royalties,
All these need some very special skills or talent or significant capital.
Two other possibilities that may be often overlooked are:
– An online business or
– A Network Marketing Business
Of course, you need knowledge, some resources (far less than for the traditional methods), and lots and lots of hard work and your fair share of obstacles along the way. But then which goal comes easy?
Give them everything you got for a couple of years or so and watch your lifestyle change into the lifestyle of your dreams.
