Making a Start on Wealth
Do you want to plan for a brighter, better future, but sometimes feel overwhelmed by the sheer size of the task?
It can seem enormous can’t it? Where do you even start? It can leave you feeling hopeless and despondent. The result is you watch another TV programme and vow to do something ‘tomorrow’ about your future. And of course, tomorrow never comes! The days drift into weeks which in turn drift into months and years of inaction. No closer to your dream. No closer to a wealthier life.
Well help is at hand!
Without turning this into ‘cliché corner’ you’ll have heard the expression “The longest journey begins with the first step”. Wealthy and successful people have known this for a long time. It’s one of the keys of their success. They know a big secret about worthwhile projects (like making a million!) – you have to ‘chunk them down’ – break them into smaller tasks! No way can you tackle big projects in one hit. How do you put a man on the moon? It seems overwhelming. But if you chunk it down into propulsion, telecoms, life support and so on – then chunk each of those down into step-by-step tasks, well suddenly it seems do-able. And by the way, that’s precisely how they DID do it!
So ask yourself this question: “Where do I want to be in ten years from now?”
Now ask yourself: “What do I have to do THIS YEAR to make it happen?”
Now try this: “What do I have to do THIS WEEK to start to make it happen?”
And finally: “What can I do in the NEXT HOUR to start to make this happen.”
Don’t try and do the whole task at once – it’s too big for you. But you need to make a start – and make a start NOW.
What can you do in the next hour to make this start?
