How to Get Rich Systematically – Taking Time Out For Success

Taking time out of the rat race to get rich is smart. Especially when you consider the time, and energy used up at dead end jobs that offer no hope of future success. Time is something we can never get back, or change.  Most people are uncomfortable with change even though it’s desperately needed. We must open our mind with new possibilities to move our life forward.

This blog is not about being greedy, or having selfish ambitions. It’s about being smart, and creating a successful lifestyle that improves your life. It challenges you to do things differently – Even if that means to start over, and go a new direction.

Getting rich without a doubt

After years of case study Napoleon Hill ( Author of Think, and Grow Rich ) found some answers to getting rich. He spent 25 years interviewing the most successful entrepreneurs in the world, before reaching a conclusion. What he found went completely against traditional teachings about success. His findings had nothing to do with being smarter, or working harder.

Many of the people Napoleon Hill interviewed started out poor with little education. What set them apart was an unwavering confidence of success despite their circumstances. They learned to to use time, and knowledge systematically to produce massive wealth. Even in their darkest moments of failure they were so certain, and determined nothing could stop them. They visualized themselves getting rich before it ever happened without any doubt.

Most great people have attained their greatest success just one step beyond their greatest failure. Napoleon Hill

This is not the way average people think. The part of you that wants to succeed must overpower any doubt, or insecurities you have about your success. Average people only dream of “getting rich” then they get distracted, and caught up in everyday life. To rise above mediocrity we must elevate our life to a whole new level without any doubt of success.

Training your mind for success

To get rich you must think in a new way with an intentional process that trains your mind for success. There’s a lot good that money can do when our heart is in the right place. Most of us only use 5% of our brain’s capacity to think, so we have unimaginable potential to create any life we desire.

Regardless of our minds capacity we only have 24 hours a day to make things happen. Having more knowledge is great, but without a plan of action nothing changes. Below you’ll learn to train your mind, as you put together a plan for success.

Taking time out for new beginnings

Taking time out to evaluate our life is the starting point for new beginnings. It also helps open our mind when we feel stressed, and unsure about our next move.

Here’s a few examples below:

Learn more: Each of us have a learning curb that can be enhanced. Some of the key principles to  getting rich is the ability to learn with increased comprehension.

Stop wasting time: We can’t change time, or manipulate it, but we can change the way we use it. Avoid time killers, and unproductive habits that waste time, and energy.

Be consistent: Be systematic in your daily routine to avoid any setbacks. Establish a daily method of operation with more organization detailing certain goals to accomplish each day.

Get systematic: We usually get good at things we do over, and over. Use this same process to develop skills that make you rich over time with systematic certainty.

Duplicate success: Find successful people that have what you want, and duplicate what they do. Be creative in your own skin, but try to reach out to mentors that can give excellent advice.

Be creative: The more fun, and creative you are at getting rich, the better you’ll be at it. Make every effort to expand your imagination with more creativity, and adventure.

Grow in personal development: The more you work on yourself the more success you’ll have in everything you do. Learn the art of personal development to help grow, and improve every area of your life.

Take time out to apply some of these examples, and you’ll be well on your way to new beginnings. You’ll learn to get rich systematically with more confidence than you’ve had in your lifetime.

Making a positive change in your life

When we get to a place where we feel disconnected from our work it could be a sign that some positive changes are needed. Have you ever stopped and asked yourself why you do what you do everyday? Is it working? Or are you just spinning in circles hoping for the best, and getting nowhere. The only point of power we have to make positive change is now. The question is are you ready? The answer depends on your inner desire to do things in a better way.

Our motivation plays a huge role, but without an avenue of success it usually has a shelf life. We must get past the hype, and systematically get rich with a master plan using time more efficiently. This is what will make positive change a reality as you learn to harness your full potential.

Designing  a systematic plan of success

There should be no doubt that getting rich is a systematically designed process. The only thing to do at this point is to develop a plan of action that positions your life for complete success.

Make a promise: Before crafting a well thought out plan make a promise to yourself that you’ll stick to it. Then review it daily to remind yourself of that promise.

Be specific: As you begin to write down ideas make them as specific as possible. If you’re unsure about certain areas of interest then take time to do some research to expand your knowledge.

Design a work in progress: Make your master plan flexible as you design it. When better ideas come make some changes as a work in continual progress.

Involve other people: Any successful plan always includes other people to make it a reality. Share it with people that you trust to get an honest opinion, and perhaps more ideas you never thought about.

Put your plan into action at once. You’ll never learn better ways of do things until you take action. This will probably take you out of your comfort zone which is necessary.

Final Thoughts

Using these principles can change the course of your life with more confidence than ever before. There’s an art to getting rich, and doing things in a systematic way. We must train our mind to stay focused on what we want instead of constantly absorbed in what we don’t want. Having a dream to succeed with an organized plan to achieve it without a doubt is the key to getting rich.

How to Get Unstuck In Life & Out Of A Dead End Job

Getting stuck in life can happen to anyone for a number of reasons. In fact most of us have had certain times in our lives of sadness, disappoint, and regret. One common hardship is financial problems. When you’re working hard at a dead end job, and barely surviving it’s easy to feel stuck.

dead end jobIt’s hard to imagine a life of success when you don’t have an avenue to get there. Deep down there’s a competitive nature in us all to excel at whatever we do. Most of us are passionate about our work, and want the best life for ourselves, and our family.

Passion is what motivates us to work hard and take pride in doing a quality job well done regardless of pay. Sadly many will work harder at a dead end job then on their personal development. We should always be grateful for any job despite the pay, but we don’t have to get stuck there for life.

“Work hard at your job and you can make a living. Work hard on yourself and you can make a fortune”. Jim Rohn

Getting unstuck from life & work

Dead End JobGetting unstuck is a mindset. We are all creatures of habit, and we don’t like change which makes it easy to get stuck. We can’t continue doing the same old thing, and expect a different result.

When we feel there’s no other options it’s easy to become withdrawn, and depressed. Allowing these feelings to fester in our mind long, and they will sabotage our entire life. So what choice is really out there? When we feel powerless our inner potential is usually never challenged.

Several people today are overqualified and underpaid at their jobs. As a result many have lost dreams that faded long ago. Life becomes more about survival then a life of success. Remember it’s our competitive nature that drives us to success. To get unstuck it’s best to find ways to spark that inner drive with a dose of desire. Start thinking about how things can get better.

3 starting points to avoid dead end jobs

Here’s three things to do when you’re stuck in life, and feel there’s no way out of your dead end job.

  • Reclaim your passion: What is it that you loved doing in the past that you’re not doing now? There are hidden layers of treasure in our past that can remind us of our true passion in life. Reclaim it with an open mind, and some adventure. To get unstuck we need some imagination to expand our mind.
  • Develop a brilliant game plan: You need a brilliant detailed plan of action. How? Train your mind for success by finding out what motivates you, moves you, and inspires your inner drive to make things happen. Use your time wisely to broaden your knowledge in business.
  • Learn the art of making money: Every situation is different, but there are far better ways to earn money then a job. For example a business system that generates residual passive income streams whether you’re working, playing golf, or on vacation. There is an art to making money which puts the probability factor of future success in your hands.

New ways to make money in the information age

The traditional ways to make money is a broken system. There is a new philosophical business model that is generating more multi millionaires than ever before in history. The opportunities are endless for those who learn to adapt to new ideas, new innovations, and a little creativity. There is a new science to making money which can bring you lots of success in this environment. There is more information than ever to expand our learning curb, and to create any life we desire. But we are overwhelmed with information, and starved for new ways to use it. Here’s a few tips below.

Develop a laser focus: The mind is a powerful tool that can absorb, and learn new information faster when we develop a laser focus. The beginning to every dream, and ambition starts in the mind. Get focused on learning, growing, and expanding your game plan with more knowledge. This will build more self-confidence which is necessary to move forward.

Learn knowledge incrementally: Avoid information overload by taking in information incrementally. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Absorbing knowledge with a deeper understanding, and comprehension will make you very smart overtime. Knowledge in action equals power, and power equals more money, time, and freedom to do the things you want in life.

“We are drowning in information, but starving for wisdom.”

Tony Robbins

Using automated tools online to create passive income

Successful entrepreneurs know the power of automation well. Some have created millions of dollars from scratch using a small website, some online tools, and a little creativity. Others have used social media exclusively to generate impressive residual income without a website. Most of them simply plug into an automated system already in place, and duplicate those that are successful.

Growing an automated business that makes money while you sleep is just smart. Once the system is in place, it can run in motion continuously whether you fine tune it or not. From the earnings you can invest more time and energy to increase more income. This formula has revolutionized the way we do business in many industries.

Breaking free from a dead end job

There are still those uninformed souls who believe a job is the safer secure way to earn money. Even though the signs are everywhere that things are changing fast. Social perceptions cause people to work hard, but think wrong. With this frame of mind we can never break free, and make positive changes. It wasn’t until I quit my $60,000 per year job trap that I began to experience real success.

I was working in retail management six days a week for just under 20 years. Within 4 years of quitting I was making more in one day then I made in a whole week at my old job. I found new skills I didn’t know I had. These skills were small but significant. I learned to make a lot more money with less energy. This new found skill motivated a relentless determination deep down.

I learned to outsource, and use my time efficiently to make myself successful. This caused an inner shift that gave me more purpose to rise and start the day with more enthusiasm. There are far better ways to make money then a place you don’t want to be, and people you don’t want to see. The greatest feeling was the day I decided to break free from a dead end job that kept me stuck in life for years. We all have cross roads where we can rise above mediocrity, or stay stagnant getting nowhere.

Making smart job choices 

Job choices are usually made with little thought outside the social conditioned mind-set. Influence can cause people to make bad choices. For example family, and friends can unintentionally cause a disastrous job choice with lasting effects. Many are good people with good intentions, but lack insights of the new economy. They are still operating under the old system that cannot sustain itself much longer.

This is why I started out with three important things to get unstuck in life, and avoid a job trap. The mistake many of us make when making career choices is to follow dollar signs without considering the cost. The time away from the family, and level of stress could come with a heavy price. Taking a step back to think things through is wise. Reclaiming things you’re passionate about will help balance your perspective in decision making. If you’re content having a job then make sure you enjoy your life in the process..

“The biggest mistake people make in life is not doing what they enjoy”. Malcolm S. Forbes

Final Thoughts

People will stay at a job they hate for several reasons. Maybe all those years of college would be wasted, or they just can’t see themselves doing something else. Whatever the reasons putting a business in motion that generates passive income is not a bad choice. Starting a local business doing something you love maybe better than a job trap that leads to a dead end road. Either way it all comes down to our ability to think, and make smart choices that make life more enjoyable.

Getting unstuck from a bad situation is an adventure. Opportunities are endless everywhere for those who learn new ways to make money this information age. Getting out of a dead end job is a good choice. The first step is always the hardest, but it’s never too late for new beginnings.

7 Positive Mindsets to Unlock Unlimited Success

Developing positive mindsets can open a whole new world you never knew existed. How many mysteries are in the mind of man that we’ve yet to discover? The mind is a precious wonder with untapped potential that transcends beyond our wildest dreams.

The greatest think tanks in history have marveled at the inconceivable capacity to uncover them all. Imagine the limitless potential you would have if you could tap into your mind’s infinite resources. Your life would suddenly take on new meaning with new ideas, innovations, and endless possibilities. Here’s seven things you can do to unlock unlimited success using positive mindsets.

“The mind is just like a muscle – the more you exercise it, the stronger it gets and the more it can expand.” Idowu Koyenikan

1 – Learn to use positive mindsets correctly

There are specific reasons why positive mindsets are so effective. Everything we see is made up of energy. Here’s the good, and bad news. When we focus on our dreams with certainty we can unleash a powerful energy source that manifests success on demand. The bad news is our point of focus can also work against us.

There are laws in the universe that are so precise they never fail. What we believe, and focus on most determines our outcome. Many of us have no idea this power even exists. The creative mind has no limitations, and because of this the possibilities in our life are endless.

With a detailed focus we can elevate higher frequency levels of energy to carry out specific commands at will. Developing positive mindsets with a laser focus on our intention is the key to personal success. 

“To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail”. Giorgio Armani

2 – Remove logical reasonings that set limitations 

We are the only one who can put limitations on our life. These limitations originated from social conditioning in our childhood that embedded what we can, and cannot do. When you’re not aware of this you can easily put barriers around every corner of your life

The law of cause, and effect applies to every thought we think in real-time. Our mind has the capacity to think things into existence. It’s as sure as gravity! Your mind has the power to create the life you focus on most. How?  Simply bypass the logical gate keeper.

Our logical mind can be our worst enemy. For example: we know logically that certain things are bad for us yet we do them anyway. Our logical mind will justify them all while putting up limitations around every corner.

We learn early on to hide behind logic to justify insecurities, laziness, addictions, and several other things that give us a false sense of justification. When we allow our logic to dominate every decision we never experience our full potential. It will control our thoughts, positions, and conditions while defending our present life without any recognition for change.

The treasures of accurate knowledge, wisdom, and power dwells far beyond logic, or human reasoning. We need to go way beyond petty limitations, before we can tap the infinite power of the subconscious mind. 

“There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge. Both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought.” Napoleon Hill

 3 – Use your internal vocabulary intelligently

What we think, and believe determines our life, and eventually our destiny. This is why developing intelligent mindsets are so important. They can either be a blessing, or a curse, and each of us holds the key to both outcomes. The unintentional consequence of negative self talk can literally sabotage our life. For example our internal vocabulary (self talk) may sound something like this:

Mindsets that cause self affliction

  • I can’t lose weight
  • I’m too old
  • I’m always broke
  • People avoid me
  • I’m not attracting
  • Why does this always happen to me?
  • Why do things never work out for me?

We could probably add several more to the list, but I’ll leave room for your imagination. Everything we need or desire already exist, but not everything is beneficial. Many people will spend a lifetime trying to fit squares into circles and wonder why nothing fits. The more we speak these seemingly light hearted words into our subconscious mind the more unintended consequences happen.

“Your words control your life, your progress, your results, even your mental and physical health. You cannot talk like a failure and expect to be successful.” Germany Kent

4 – Use affirmations to improve low self-image

We can’t keep planting lemons and expect oranges. Negative thoughts cannot produce a positive life. Even the most devout pessimist can occupy their mind with abundant seeds of opportunity once they learn to bypass the logical gate keeper. With this new skill they can create any life they desire overcoming, low self image, mental barriers , and negative belief patterns.

One effective way to reverse a low self image is through a technique called self-affirmations. This bypasses negative feelings one may have about themselves with positive characteristics they want to model after.

New research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, explores the neurophysiological reactions that could explain how self-affirmation helps us deal with threats to our self-integrity.

“Although we know that self-affirmation reduces threat and improves performance, we know very little about why this happens. And we know almost nothing about the neural correlates of this effect,” says lead researcher Lisa Legault of Clarkson University.

The bottom line is that affirmations work well for self-development. Learn more about changing your mental, physical, and emotional state using positive mindsets below.


5 – Take charge of your life with power

When you’re not in charge of your life you’re powerless. What good is it to have all the success strategies to better yourself without the power to use it.

We have an inherent right as a human being to create the life we want. And we must use that right with complete accountability to obtain any power we have to make changes. This puts us in the driver’s seat of our life regardless of the outcome.

This maybe hard to accept because the choices we make affects other people as well.  More accountability means more responsibility for bad choices we make. Especially when they affect those we love.

Our relationships have a detrimental effect on our success. The more we give the more we receive. The more we help others succeed, the more we succeed. When we put other people in our dreams we have a much better shot at success.

Only when we become personally accountable for our mistakes do we have power. Once we blame others for our failures we give away that power, and become a victim of circumstance.

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, or the wind, but you can change yourself. That is something you have charge of”. Jim Rohn

6 – Speak positive words into your mind

Every bit of self-confidence, or insecurity we have is expressed in words. What we believe, and speak determines our actions, and our actions determine our results. What’s the solution to more abundance, and happiness? We can either choose words that inspire us, or destroy us …. build us up …. or tear us down.

Our inner vocabulary either encourages, and strengthens us, or drains us. Putting a fresh outlook on life with a positive mindset can open up abundant success at work, and home. A kind word to yourself, and others can move mountains.

“Once your mindset changes, everything on the outside will change along with it.” Steve Maraboli

#7 – Focus on unlimited success

Focus your mind on complete unlimited success with detailed intention. Find out what you want to achieve then start moving in that direction at once. There are several methods for positive mindsets, but none will work without a changed perception of yourself. You can’t produce a positive life with a negative mind. Many can’t see the connection between their thoughts and their circumstances. They think things just happen by chance without realizing they are the cause. So what’s the solution? Practice speaking words that inspire you, and shift your focus on unlimited success in your mind.

“We have the power to unlimited success” 

  • I am in control of every aspect of my life.
  • I’m successful in whatever I do.
  • My mind is at peace.
  • Each day I’m drawing closer to my dreams.
  • I’m advancing my life toward success everyday.
  • I have all levels of energy – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
  • Everyday I’m feeling more, and more amazing about my life.
  • I’m determined to make my life better.
  • I love people, and I constantly attract them into my life.
  • I’m creative, focused and positive about my success.

 Final thoughts

Make a list of everything you would like your life to be. Then appreciate it as if it already exists. Things will work in your favor when you use positive mindsets to better yourself. As a result you can have unlimited success in everything you do. 

Simple Affirmations to Make a Positive Change In Your Life

Throughout history a change of thought has literally changed families, communities, nations, and the world. For many of us a simple change of thought would revolutionize our entire life. It would improve our health, our self confidence, our relationships, and our business. But how can we actually change the way we think about ourselves, and our outlook on life?

Affirmations have proven to be a great place to start. They’re an effective way to shift our perception of ourselves at a subconscious level. Many of us are unable to experience a better life due to mental barriers, and destructive thought patterns that hold us back. However you don’t have to be a total pessimist to benefit tremendously from using affirmations.

How do positive affirmations work?

AffirmationsAffirmations are simply positive suggestions with specific meanings to help override destructive belief patterns. When used properly they speak words of power, purpose, and inspiration into our mind on a daily basis.

It’s no secret that we become what we think about most ….. So why not think about what you want in your life? Affirmations are an effective tool to improve your results in every industry, and business.

If you practice affirmations on a daily basis your mind will begin to direct you in ways you never imagined. You’ll think of solutions to problems that seemed impossible before. Brilliant ideas will pop into your mind out of nowhere triggering creative ways to do things better, and more efficiently.

You’ll become more productive, more alert, and motivated as you learn to master the art of positive affirmations.

Using affirmations subconsciously

Affirmations is a science for those who use them properly. There is a constant battle between the conscious and subconscious mind. We may have good intentions using willpower, and brute force to overcome bad habits, addictions, and wrong thinking, but if these intentions are not ingrained subconsciously they will most likely never happen.
For this reason affirmations are an effective tool,  because they cause the brain to accept positive suggestions as facts. The beauty of this process is that positive things start happening in you, and around you without effort, or force. 
 After getting into a relaxed meditative mood speak these words into your mind. Focus on each word with emotion as you try to connect with yourself at a deeper level of consciousness.

5 Ways to Rise Above Mediocrity

To rise above mediocrity we must go beyond the robotic mind-set of social conditioning. Living in mediocrity makes people only do enough to survive, never exerting a challenge, or bettering them-self. The good news is it’s never too late to avoid this, and recreate your life story.

As human beings we are all creatures of habit. We become increasingly robotic in our routine at work and in life. Although convenient, this can lead to a life without self-improvement, or reaching higher levels of success. In order to rise above we must expand our learning curb in personal growth, and embrace a better way to think, and live.

Below you will learn the art of communication skills,  goal setting, and using your imagination effectively for success before it happens. We will also touch on the importance of using time wisely, and how to take action without procrastinating.  These 5 principles will hopefully help you achieve great success, and rise above mediocrity.

rise above mediocrity

#1- Get Motivated in Goal Setting

Getting motivated and staying motivated isn’t always an easy task. Even people who have achieved great success fall into slumps and find it hard to get motivated at certain times in their life. This is why goal setting is so important. If you’re in a slump right now, you know exactly what I mean.

No matter how many successes you’ve had in the past, it all seems irrelevant now. It seems like no matter how hard you try, no matter what you do, you won’t be able to achieve your goals; and even if you do, you’re not sure that accomplishing them will make you feel any better.

Fortunately for you, no matter how bad it seems right now, it doesn’t have to stay that way. You have a lot of options when it comes to breaking free from set-back, and barriers.

When we set goals we need one specific focus. When our mind processes a demand it has to be specific, with a deadline attached. It’s not enough to set goals like: lose more weight, make more money, and so on. They need to be in exact increments like $175.00 dollars a week or 7 pounds a month. The mind has the power to process thought patterns that ensures specific goals happen on time with precision. Having specific goals with detail, and a deadline attached will help you rise above mediocrity.

“A goal is a dream with a deadline”. Napoleon Hill

#2- Imagine success before it happens

Imagination is a powerful tool to create a better life for yourself. Focus on something you want to achieve, and then mentally simulate it over and over in your mind as it plays out. Athletes often use this technique to visualize themselves winning races, scoring points, or making a comeback after failure, and disadvantaged games.

If you want to truly be successful here’s a great place to start.  Start focusing your mind on what you want in life and visualize it in detail. If you do this consistently the results will amaze you. Successful entrepreneurs visualize themselves becoming successful before it happens. We have a gift to not only think, but to imagine.

When we put limits on our beliefs our thoughts become subject. People living in mediocrity can’t see themselves as becoming successful. So why not break free from this negative mindset? Imagine the possibilities when you start believing in yourself, and others around you.

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”  Albert Einstein.

#3 – Become an effective communicator

Everything we do in life in some way involves other people. Effective communication is more than just exchanging information. If your goal is to connect with people train yourself to instinctively listen to their body language as well as what they’re saying. You can learn a lot about people when you stop conscientiously and listen.

Listening is an effective form of communication that many never master. This one technique of highly effective communication will provide better relationships, more resources, and much more success. This will set you apart in business, and help you build better relationships in your personal life as well.

“The way we communicate with others and with ourselves ultimately determines the quality of our lives”. Tony Robbins

#4- Spend time and money wisely

Time is priceless! Our life is an allotment of time given here on earth. At the end of our days we won’t say I wish I had more money! We will say I wish I had more time. The way we spend our time reflects our priorities, and our priorities reflect the way we spend money. Becoming conscious of the value of time, and putting money in its proper place is a wise choice that can make yourself very rich and successful.

“Waste your money and your only out of money, but waste your time and you’ve lost a part of your life”. Micheal LeBoeuf

#5- Take action without procrastinating

Action is what creates results! Putting things off can easily become a habit that only creates stress. One of the best things we can do for our life is to stop procrastinating. When all the dust settles the most important thing to do is action. You can do all the planning, and hypothesizing you want, but until there is action nothing is going to get done.

“Procrastination is opportunities assassin” . Victor Kiam

Would you rather flock with the crows or rise above like an eagle? The answer to that question determines whether you’re ready to rise above mediocrity or stay average.

 

Why Your Future Success Maybe Jobless

Today it’s more risky to depend on a job than ever before. Long gone are the days when you worked hard for 30 years, retire and live happily ever after. It probably sounds familiar because it worked well for people in the past. The average career plan for millions of people is to get a job.
The problem is the financial system is broke.While the cost of living is sky rocketing high paying jobs are diminishing. Most jobs won’t even keep up with inflation not to mention a better lifestyle, retirement. and better future. So what’s the solution? Is it still feasible to make more money than what most jobs offer? Let’s put the average job to the test and see if it’s the answer for your future success.

Jobs with no future success

Future SuccessAnything worth having usually has a risk, and jobs are no different. Any job with no chance of success is probably not worth the risk. You could end up getting stuck in a job you hate. Jobs are changing fast and the ones that offered good medical and retirement benefits are becoming obsolete.

Things are getting worse in the job market, and it doesn’t appear things are getting better anytime soon. So what’s better alternative …. Work a traditional low paying job, or start your own business ? Both scenarios have a risk factor.

Starting your own business has no guarantee of future success. You can spend your entire life savings, and lose everything. However with a traditional job you basically know what to expect. The risk factor decreases if you’re willing to barely get by while trading precious time and energy for little in return.

So the idea should be to minimize as much risk as possible while moving toward a financial goal, or business opportunity. This is a smart short term, and long term strategy,  but it requires some diligence. And there are many things to consider …here’s a few that puts your future success into perspective.

Why most traditional businesses cannot compete

future success

We live in the information age and wealth is being created in new ways that wasn’t available a decade ago. Small traditional businesses are closing down while large corporations are taking over. Traditional businesses are trying to compete with corporations that have more capital.

All this while trying to pay space rent, overhead, inventory, employees, payroll taxes, workers comp, and so on… I think you can understand why many fail within 5 years.

So what’s the solution?  As stated you need something with low risk, and high return. For example network marketing, or an internet business with unlimited earning potential providing a service that people are willing to pay for. Those that tap into this business model has a much higher chance of future success than those who choose a traditional job route.

Trading time for money

future successTrading time for money is a failed broken system with severe limitations for your financial future. One of the worst ways to generate income in today’s fast changing environment is to trade time for money with an employer.

This completely goes against the delusional concept that if you put your time in and work hard you’ll be fine. This plan says you must trade 1/3 of your life away for a paycheck that puts you just over broke.

Does this sound smart to you? There’s nothing wrong with a job that fulfills your needs and makes you happy, but for most people this is not happening. There are still those who think having a job just seems like the easy practical way to create income logically. But trading time for money at many jobs simply cannot keep up with the cost of living anymore. People are now working 2, or 3 jobs just to put food on the plate. This environment sets people up for failure,  at a dead end job with no opportunity for success.

So is trading time for money at a job more risky than becoming an entrepreneur, or business owner?  If you have little ambition with no drive to create future success then a job is by far less risky, and more logical for your life.  On the other hand if you’re ambitious, and have the desire, and motivations to become successful then your job is probably holding you back. So trading time for money at a job is less risky for the unmotivated person, and more risky for the motivated in regards to future success.succeeded against all odds

New Businesses that make money

New technology is constantly changing and shaping the way we think, live and do business.  These increases in technologies has already replaced a lot of high paying jobs with lower pay scale jobs. Employers are outsourcing work more and more instead of hiring because of the overall cost of having an employee is also increasing.

Businesses are realizing that an online presence can generate a lot more money with less expense than a traditional brick, and mortar business on the street corner. The internet is expected to grow incredibly over the next 5 to 10 years, and anyone can profit from it. Why not Capitalize on it using automated systems that are making people very rich all over the world ?

We can either take advantage of new technology or become a victim to it. We can stay put, and do nothing,  or  advance our learning curb. The choice is yours. But you can never go back, and do things different. The only moment of power any of us have to make smart choices is right now.

Final Thoughts

Any success worth having is worth the effort! Creating passive income takes some time and energy, but not a lot of money. People are waking up, and realizing that job dependency is becoming a thing of the past. There is far better ways to make money than trading your time, hard work, and energy for a paycheck that puts you just over broke.

The greatest reasons people stay at a job they hate is a lack of self confidence. For this reason  personal development is so relevant and useful in today’s society. Why? Because our inner precondition mind-set can hold us back in life, while our outer circumstance never changes, or moves forward in a positive direction. And this is also true with a career or job.

Once you develop self-confidence you can see things with more clarity, and begin taking steps to build a vision with reason and purpose. When people don’t apply themselves, they develop low self-esteem, and become vulnerable to a job trap that offers little future success.
