5 signs you aren't serious about your goals...

5 signs you aren't serious about your goals


We all have goals. We all want to achieve our goals. We all aren't serious about our goals..

Are you serious? Here are 5 signs that may show you aren't...
1. Your goals aren't written down -A goal that isn't written down is a wish. Stop wishing, and start writing. Put a date on it. If you don't give yourself a time limit, you'll procrastinate forever.
2.Your actions don't back up your words - Yes, speaking goals aloud is a great way to motivate yourself and others. Yes, words areseeds. Yes, the power of life and death is in the tongue. However, talk is cheap. If you wantsuccess, you have to work. There's no way around it. Don't talk about it, be about it. Get busy.
3. You don't put in time to perfect your craft -How many hours do you think an elite professional athlete trains per day? I thought so, if he/she has to train hard to top their profession, what makes you think you don't? If you aren…

What are you worth?

What are you worth?


Would you agree that the vast majority of the workforce possesses a lot more talent, passion, and creativity then their current job will require or even allow?
If you said yes, you're probably a lot like me. I think most people are severely underpaid.
With that being said, how much are you worth?
I hope you have an answer for that.
You have one? Great!
Now, are you getting paid it?
You aren't? Why?
Lets recap. You work for someone you don't like, doing work you don't like, somewhere you don't like to be and you're not even getting paid what you said you're worth?
Anything wrong with that picture?
Do yourself a favor. Figure out what you're worth and get it. Let's get to work..

5 reasons you need to diversify your income..

5 reasons you need to diversify your income..


Greetings friend.
I call you friend because I want you to know I'm not disrespecting anything about you or your income, I just want to make you aware of some concepts.
Do you get your income from one source? If so, these are some reasons you may want to diversify..
1. Cracked eggs
Your job isn't safe. With the economy the past few years, we've all learned we need to develop a back up income. Our parents told us,"Don't put all of your eggs in one basket. Then, what did we do? Put all of our eggs in one basket. If you don't have multiple streams of income, all your eggs are in one basket. What are you going to do if the basket drops?
2. Control
You're not in control of your future if you only have one stream of income provided by someone else. Do you feel better about your future in your hands or your boss'? Would you feel better about you providing your income or retiring on a third of your best years income…

Types of Income: Explained...

There are a million and one ways to make money.

There are plenty of methods to create income. You can have a job, have a business, have income producing assets, or even "sit on the system." Funny thing is, even with all the methods of creating income there are only two primary types. These are active and passive. Sounds simple right?

Let's dig deeper..
If you haven't heard of passive income, don't feel bad. Most haven't. Most school systems only teach active income. I graduated # 16 student in my high school class and #11 in my college class AND I was in the school of business! I'm not saying that to brag, I'm saying that to show you I paid attention in school. I didn't hear about passive income until I picked up my first Robert Kiyosaki book. Crazy right?
Ok, chances are you already understand and are participating in active income. If you create your income actively, it means you have to perform some sort of task to get your money, EVERY time.…
