This article is a little different from some of the previous ones I’ve written about success principles.
Let’s go back to when I was first starting out as an entrepreneur. In fact, I wasn’t even an entrepreneur yet. I was trying to become one.
I’d been listening to tapes of Napoleon Hill’s ‘Your Right To Be Rich’ seminar…over and over and over. I listened day and night.
As soon as I opened my eyes in the morning? Napoleon Hill.
During the day? Napoleon Hill.
While I slept? Napoleon Hill!
It didn’t matter to me that I’d listened to it 5…10…20 times in a row. And this wasn’t a 1-hour CD either. It was 14 hours of only Napoleon Hill!
Imagine what that’s like: wanting to succeed so badly that you’d be willing to listen to the same talk every day until you made a difference.
I completely saturated my consciousness with Dr. Hill’s message.
After a few weeks, I reached a state where I no longer needed a motivational shot in the arm; I now had within me an overwhelming desire to take ACTION.
Only there was a problem:
I had a ROADBLOCK in my life.
My roadblock was that I had this wealth of information around me; tons of personal development books, cds and tape sets…yet I didn’t know exactly what I should be doing.
I was motivated to take action but I had no idea what action to take.
I didn’t know how to convert ideas into dollars.
I was stuck.
I remember sitting at my desk, looking at all these titles by Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Mark Victor Hansen, Harv Eker, Robert Allen and so many others. This wealth of knowledge and wisdom surrounded me and I didn’t have a clue what to do with it all.
All I could do was ask out loud…WHAT DO I DO? WHAT DO I DO NEXT?
Let me tell you: when you ask the right questions, you’ll get the right answers.
The next thing I did was I pulled out a tape set by Jay Abraham called ‘Your Secret Wealth’ and started listening to it..
On the tapes, Jay spoke about ‘Seeing Opportunities Around You’.
Opportunity is everywhere and there are SO MANY different ways to make money.
You just have to be able to recognize them.
So I started trying to “see” opportunity. I looked for it everywhere I went.
What was the value of things around me?
And was I perceiving a greater or lesser value in them than other people?
Training my mind to perceive opportunity opened my awareness and I was then able to see opportunities where I never would have seen them before.
In fact, I went on to become a PowerSeller on eBay for 2 years because of this. And I didn’t even start out with any merchandise!
That said, what I’m going to share with you now is a simple technique you can implement immediately to make extra money for yourself.
However, this technique is so simple and easy to put into practice that there’s a good chance you will take it too lightly. That you’ll say, “that’s not a big deal. I know that already.”
This would actually be a mistake on your part because then you won’t reap the rewards either.
Ok, are you ready for an exercise that is guaranteed to quickly and easily bring you more money in your life?
Here’s what you do:
Up to 15 times each day, I want you to ask (out loud): “How Can I Make Money?”
Don’t ask 15 times in a row like you had to when you were caught chewing gum in school.
Ask once at a time, throughout the day, with all your attention and with sincerity:
“How Can I Make Money?”
Listen, because the answer will come to you.
And so will the money!
Have a Great Day and Let’s Make This Your Year!
