Most people stay in the realm of fantasy, maybe dipping out occasionally to buy a lottery ticket. Others, may not be satisfied with the 9 to 5 grind. It takes a few more risks to pour energy into business ideas, opportunities, and companies. Most will fail within three to five years.
But, there are those fewer people with the skill (which can be learned through modeling), willpower and creativity who are successful. There is another attribute, though, that separates them from the poor, and that is intention.
Most people say their financial goal is to make money. That’s a good goal, but, the issue is that it’s not specific enough. If you have wishy-washy intentions, you’re going to get wishy-washy results.
Create Financial Intentions
Rich Business People Have Three Financial Intentions:
To have a very high working income
To create passive income
Dramatically enhance the value of their company
What’s the intention that poor people have? To earn a living and a decent one, too. That’s what they’re in business for. They don’t consider ways to create passive income, and even more importantly, ways to create wealth.
A business is not a job, it is too much work along with too many challenges to earn a decent living. Design a business model that will be a vehicle to set you free and create nothing short of wealth! Rich people understand that business is simply two components:
- Buying or creating something.
- Selling it for more.
And that’s it! Most broke people have struggles. They put most of their energy into the administrative and operations arena rather than the two simple business components, and that is a mistake.
Focus On The Intention
Of course, operations are very important, but it’s not the essence of the business. Go back to the cave people: ‘Here’s a piece of meat. I want your stick.’ That’s it! There’s no tech support. There’s no finance department, reporting, no furniture, and there’s no computers. ‘Your stick, my meat! Let’s go!’ That’s business!
Buying and creating and selling. Everything else is just icing on the cake.
This knowledge helps focus the intention of why we’re talking millionaire success strategies. The basics help, but the intention has to come from the simplest truth. When we’re going into business, we’re not going halfway. You could, but would that be much better than working a typical job?
When we’re talking about our money blueprints, the basics of why we go into business have to be drawn up into the foundation. It’s so simple and powerful yet not very well understood. Knowing this helps put you back into focus when the inevitable challenges arise, or when you face disappointments and setbacks.
First and foremost, you are doing this because you are going to be rich! Whatever other intentions are attached to that—for family, to buy nice things, to travel, to be an artist, whatever—don’t have to conflict with this truth.
You are doing this to be rich and to be free!
