Who Wants to be a Billionaire?
Compare that to how many times you may have daydreamed about what it would be like to be a Millionaire, lots? Have you thought about that big business deal finally coming off, a massive stock market recovery or that day when your numbers finally come up for the lottery rollover?
What’s the difference? Does Millionaire sound more realistic or “easy” than Billionaire? Can you imagine things that can happen in your life or things that you can do to get you there? Can you make an action plan to hit that magic number?
In truth, today’s tip isn’t about money. It can be used in any area of your life that you want to make a difference in.
When Billionaire H.L.Hunt was asked the secret to great wealth he came up with a simple 4 step formula. I believe that this formula is so simple, adaptable and powerful that we can use it in any area of life.
So how do we do it?
Step One – Decide what it is you want
Example; I want to be fit, healthy and live a long life.
Step Two – Decide what you are willing to give up
Example; I’m willing to give up some time, money, sweat, processed foods and some (but not all) alcohol and chocolate. I believe a little of what you fancy does you good!
Step Three – Set your priorities accordingly
Example; Most people set goals and miss. Instead of setting goals set priorities. I will exercise daily as a priority over sitting on the sofa. I will prioritise eating tasty, healthy meals instead of take-aways.
Step Four; Be about it
Example – In order to “have” fitness I need to “be” a fit person. To do this I need to behave like a fit person and follow through on all the above even when I don’t feel like it. As someone once said “Just do it!”
Of course this formula can be used in any area of your life. Go through the exercise again and fill in what would work for you right now. Enjoy the experiment!
