From Broke As a Joke to Rich in Less Than 6 months
So that headline was more of an attention grabber (although I am sure there are stories like from hobo to millionaire in a year out there), but I read an article on Entrepreneur called What It Takes to Go From Dead Broke to 6 Figures in 6 Months that a lot of people could use.
Of course you should take the time to read the article but I’ll give you my Cliff Notes:
- Get off your ass and do something.
- Become success / solution oriented.
- Keep your eye on the prize.
- Self confidence is key to everything.
- Create a life don’t just make a living.
Cool? Cool. To all of you out there with a dream…GO LIVE IT! YYYYAAASSS!
And since I love and overuse quotes, here are my faves from the article:
“Reflecting back on the lowest points of my life, I’ve realized I didn’t take responsibility for anything. I was playing the victim role. I was blaming the economy, my company, lack of resources and my location. I soon realized my focus was jaded and what I needed to change was myself.”
“Get rid of the messes and noise in your head and figure out who you are, what you want…”
“Insecurities will destroy you, while real confidence will take you to a level very few attain.”
“These days, the only security you have is the confidence in yourself and your ability to make things happen.”
“The greatest wisdom of all time is in astutely choosing what not to do with your time. Say “no” more than you say ”yes”. Don’t be a slave to your phone. Design everything around the lifestyle you want, not for the convenience of other people.”
