The secret to achieving real wealth is in your hands. If it’s really what your heart desires you will make it happen, but if it’s something your head talks about but your heart doesn’t connect to it will likely never become your reality.
Reaching wealth requires you to have amazing success and that requires not only hard work but smart work. It also requires you to have the stomach to be able to take risks, the persistence to push through and overcome obstacles that get in your way and the strength to take rejection. You are going to have to know your industry.
One thing that every person has achieved wealth has in common is that they have learned how to cut their losses fast and to run with the winners. They’ve also learned when to recognize the run with the winners is ending.
You need to be able to find the winning strategies for your investment whether that’s the stock market or your business. Let’s say that you run a small coffee shop and you’ve learned that the best business is first thing in the morning and you’ve learned how to up sell your morning customers from just a coffee to a coffee and a bagel. Great that’s one winning strategy but you can’t let it end there. You have to continue to look for continuous winning strategies. One month it might be liking a Facebook page, another month it might be taking advantage of a coupon.
This is a simple example. The bottom line is the markets are changing constantly no matter what path you take to finding wealth. That’s why it is important for you to follow through on any winning strategies and give it the time, money and attention necessary to maximize its value. You also need to stick the strategy long term and keep using it as long as it is working for you. Some winning strategies work for only a short period but others work year after year. It depends on how you are making your wealth.
What is known for sure is that riches follow the person who trusts what they know and figures out how to maximize their effectiveness, while at the same time diligently expanding those winning strategies to continue to grow your income streams and therefore your wealth.
The secret is simple – if wealth is where your heart is then you will focus on creating that wealth.
