When you think of ‘getting wealthy’ or ‘starting a business’ it can seem overwhelming, don’t you think? Where on earth do you start?
The answer is: “With the first step!”
So here’s a great strategy I’ve used many times to break through the overwhelm. It’s called The Power Hour.
You make an agreement with yourself to spend ONE HOUR (not a minute more, not a minute less) making a start on your project.
If you’re writing a book, you write chapter one for an hour—and then stop.
If you’re thinking of starting an Internet marketing business, you spend an hour looking at web sites similar to the one you envisage and make some notes. Then you stop.
If you’ve been banging-on for a decade about getting wealthy ‘one day’ then you spend an hour writing and thinking about exactly how wealthy, exactly what you want (house, car, etc.) and noting down a handful of ways in which you might get it.
There is something almost magical about making a start like this.
It ‘earths’ the project and makes it more real – more believable. Not just so much hot air.
