What is your life worth ? have you ever stopped to think ? how much time are you wasting and what will it cost you in the long run ? how much time are you using to forward your goals and dreams and what do you see as reasons that you haven’t got there yet ?
All valid questions but how honest are you going to be with the answers ?
Most peoples primary goal is money, it was certainly mine and I wish I could tell you that it is not but the reality still is that the amount of power you have directly relates to the quality of life that you have and the easiest way to get power is through money, this being said how much money do you actually need ? and what are the goals with that money ?
For instance take Bill Gates, a multi Billionaire, money does not have the same meaning in his world as it does ours, when he makes another million tomorrow he will likely not even realise it, let alone react, for you and me of course this is not the case, unless you have already made it then a million tomorrow would illicit a much different response.
I started several businesses with the goal of becoming wealthy, egged on by the videos on YouTube, the Guru’s and the sheer fact that there is so much money to be made on the internet that surely some of it could be mine, the whole reason for this blog was to make money, but as I went further into the void that is internet marketing this blog took on a different purpose.
The Desperation Trade
For the majority of us on the internet looking to start a business we need to change the financial climate that we have usually mounting debt or the realisation that we have no money for our future stirs us into action and we start casually surfing for online businesses and see the purported wealth of others through Social Media and through advertising campaigns.
But we are desperate to change our situations and that of our families so that makes us a target for con men (and women) and there are plenty out there taking up aim.
Important First Questions
Ask your self this, when was the last time you saw a millionaire or billionaire on YouTube or on Instagram selling you a course on how to become a millionaire ? say Bill Gates get Rich Quick Scheme, or Richard Branson explains Amazon Marketing for a six figure income ? never and I tell you right now you never will.
So when you look at these schemes just think for a minute how do I know they are really a millionaire ? how do I know that they made their money before they made this course to sell to me?
If you can’t qualify these two questions then walk away because if you can’t see that these two questions have valid answers that make sense then the person you are seeing is a fraud.
All Guru’s are Frauds ?
Well in a word yes, if anybody wants to claim they are a Guru and they can make you millions then I would be suspicious, human nature just doesn’t work that way, and when it does it is a very rare thing, look at the people with enough money to fix the vast majority of problems around the world, do they do it ? no, there are Billionaires that have amassed enough private funds to fix poverty and still be multi millionaires but they don’t because it is their money, and why should they give their money away.
Some DO have a lot of money though ?
Yes they do and to be honest anybody at the start of something they make work will make money, and probably a lot of it, but if what they started was a course on how to make money then it is still useless to you, there is only a few things to remember when trying to make money and buy back the time in your life from the establishment.
1. You can Make Money
Yes you can, if you are able to use a computer and you have an idea that you see through then you can make money, how much depends on way to many factors to list in this article but we will discuss this later.
2. Do One Thing and be the BEST at it
If you are the best at anything then you will make exponentially more than the others in the same field, cake makers for instance, most are just small bakeries that turn a profit but never really make enough to have the owner quit work, and then there are some who truly go the extra mile and are the best who make it onto telly and have the rich and famous queuing up for their cakes, how many things you are good at however is down to your capacity, but if you make sure that you never do anything in a mediocre fashion you will do fine.
3. The Internet is a medium not another World
Often forgotten this one, the Internet is so all encompassing that we tend to think that the laws governing our physical world do not apply when we are on the internet, this is not true, the internet is STILL the medium it has not become the platform and it never can be, what I mean by this is the advertising and the sales are all virtual sure, but the humans that interact with the stores and the adverts are still human and respond to the same human wants and desires.
Your First Steps to Wealth
To get back to the title of this article I would like to draw your attention to the cost of your time, conventional lifestyles are, born, educated to serve, serve, retire, die.
Your first step is to see that you are worth so much more than that, the only thing in life we cannot get back that we spend without thinking is time, the time to write this for instance has to be balanced with a reward or it is not worth it, the time you took to read it has to mean you gained something from it or it was not worth it.
So before checking into the next “exclusive webinar” (yeah right) ask your self, would I be better off watching this or instead looking at my finances and working out how I can save money and put it toward buying my life from the world.
If the answer is yes look at your finances then great I will see you next week, if however you sit down with a cup of coffee at the webinar and start taking notes I wish you good luck, cos you will need it.
Till next week……
