1. Dream Big.
All of the millionaires that I ( Scott Zuckman ) have interviewed over the years had BIG dreams. They believed they were worth more than a 9 to 5 job. They believed there is more to life than working for 40 hours a week (or more), for 40 years, only to take a 40% pay cut once they reached retirement. Along with those dreams they were prepared to risk some capital. They are prepared to accept reasonable risk - and just go for it! A number of them risked the farm a few times. Now don’t get me wrong. I do not want you to risk the farm. But you may have to decide to take a few of those hard earned bucks and try something new. Something part time. To see if you can build a small business or quick-turn some real estate properties for cash.
2. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone.
We all move into a comfort zone. Unfortunately the comfort zone often holds us back because we become enslaved by it. For years I believed I was only worth about $50,000 a year. And during those years working for someone else that is exactly what I was paid. After an awakening, I came to believe that I was worth at least $250,000 a year. So I quit my job and started my own business. Well, I did not hit the $250K mark. I earned over $500,000 that year! You must attack your comfort zone. You must get outside of it. Push yourself to do new things you may be afraid of and break your limiting beliefs and “poor” habits. All successful people know how to find the undiscovered planet. Try something unknown or new. It is your turn now.
