It's 2018 and online shopping is booming, people are seeing there are more ways to earn income than just working 40-60 hours a week, and our government's welfare systems can't and won't give you that ideal retirement lifestyle when you can't work anymore. What do we do?
Invest. Invest in systems and products that will make money in the short and long term, and most importantly, invest in you.
The systems and products I talk about are big ticket items like shares or property, or businesses that will either need your time or money. Some of these will either give one off returns, or ongoing returns for years to come. Choose wisely.
These don't just become readily available, you need the cash flow or capital to invest in them, but that's why you have a day job right?
If you are not saving or building capital, look at a system like Infinite Prosperity to teach you more about getting in the right financial mindset.
Investing in you. What do I mean by that?
If you want to enjoy life and live longer, your health is going to play a vital part and I don't just mean physically.
You need to ensure you are paying your mind and soul the attention it deserves as these two babies are what will matter as you get older. Use it or lose it as they say!
Recommendation 1: Clear your mind of distractions.
If you can meditate or find a quiet space to reflect on things, great. If you are like me and have kids and phones and other distractions, some times audio books are the way to go.
I use iBooks on iphone, but Audible is quite good too. Find books that either teach you to be calm and clear your mind, or teach you things like 'The Science of Getting Rich' by Wallace D. Wattles, or 'You are a Badass at Making Money' by Jen Sincero.
Recommendation 2: Fly with Eagles.
Easier said than done, but the people we hang around with are usually a pretty good indicator of our lifestyle. Take the average income of your group, it is usually around the same as yours.
Are you and your friends always complaining or pointing out the negatives in life and work? Stop. This will get you no where. If you have goals, be sure to find friends that have similar goals.
We love joining groups, even if only online, that share a passion or interest. Finding someone who has done what you are trying to achieve is even better. A mentor who you can follow can do wonders to the time frame of you meeting your goals.
Recommendation 3: Think about the ratios.
You don't have to be a Maths wizz for this one. I am talking about the time verses money scenario.
In business, we would look at the money we are getting from the time and effort we are putting in. As an employee, you would be looking at the money you get for the hours you work.
A new way to focus your thinking is to separate time from money. Now think what monetary return you will get for the money you are spending. For example, that car you just bought, will that give you a financial profit when you sell or trade it in 5 years time?
When we start thinking about investing instead of spending, we are much wiser with our money. Look for investments of your hard earned money that will make more money.
Don't forget to still consider time. If you are investing in an online shop, how much time will you be spending on it? If you are trading CFDs or FOREX, how much time will this take up a day?
Time and money vs returns, keep that in your mind at all times.
Recommendation 4: Remember to Live, not just Exist.
Don't forget why you are investing or getting in to business. Make a life for yourself and your family.
Too many people build up amazing careers and businesses to find that they are still working 50-60 hours a week when they are 60. They might have become millionaires, but have they been able to enjoy the life they have created?
Some might say yes when they see the fancy cars, amazing house or the staff that work for them, but often we see relationship breakdowns, depression and very negative mindsets hidden behind the shiny stuff. Why? Because they haven't looked after the mind, soul and body.
We all need downtime, learning and socialising. We are social beings.
As online entrepreneurs, we know it is very easy to get stuck in front of a computer, and sometimes not even get out of your PJs. It is a nice lifestyle, but it is not healthy when done everyday. Remember to get outside every now and then.
Remembering why you started what you are doing now is key to progressing. Are you just going through the daily routine out of habit, or are you reminding yourself everyday why you are doing it?
