There is a certain pattern that self-made millionaires exhibited that others don’t have that gives them an unfair advantage over others. Some self-made millionaires are not even aware of this pattern which is deeply ingrained in them. This pattern separates the successful from the unsuccessful. I coined it as ‘The Pattern Of Self-Made Millionaires’.
What is ‘The Pattern Of Self-Made Millionaire’? Let’s find out more….
Set Up A Goal
Self-made Millionaires know what they want in life. This is important.If you do not even know what you want in life, you will not take the necessary action to pursue it even if you have the full capacity and resources to achieve what you want.
And the goal must be specific. Goal like I want to be rich or I want to be healthy are not specific and thus it is not measurable.
It is important that you set a benchmark for your goal that can be measured by numbers.For example, I want to make my 1st million dollars on 5th October 2010. This way, you will have a clear vision for planning the strategy that is needed to achieve what you want.
Motivated And Focus
Once self-made millionaires have set their goal, they put all their energy and resources to realize their goal. They are motivated and focus.Let face it. What is the differentiation factor between a successful and a non successful person when everything is equal?
The successful person knows how to divert their emotion to drive them to make their goal come true. In life, we did the thing we do base on the emotion inside us.
If we are able to maturely channel the emotion inside us to motivation for achieving our goals, then we will be successful too. For example, when you wake up and you do not feel like getting out of bed to work on your goal, that is your emotion controlling you. If you are able to control that emotion and pull yourself out of bed, get yourself motivated to achieve more of what you have set up to do for the day, then you will probably achieve more than the average Joe on the street.Getting motivated is not enough.
You need to stay focus and put in all your talents and energy to fulfill the tasks that is required from you to make that goal come true.
Not all the time, your journey to achieving your financial goal is smooth sailing. You will encounter problem and difficulties. Self-made Millionaires have the tenancy to keep trying and trying until they realized their goal.Let put it this way.
If you have set a goal to achieve a certain level of financial success, you need to put in consistent effort to make that happen. Along the way, you may get hit by problems and obstacles. Successful people see them as challenges and work harder to overcome the problems and make thing happen. Worst still, imagine when a person give up on the goals when face with problem after overcoming many problems, not knowing that this is the last problem to their final success.
To accomplish something in life, you need to be persistent in working toward the goals that you have setup earlier.
To end it, I would like to emphasize the importance of persistency in achieving anything in life with a quote from Michael Jordan, probably the greatest basketball player on planet earth.
“I’ve missed more than 9,000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot… and missed. I have failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”
Set your financial goal, be as specific as possible. Get motivated and stay focus in achieving your goal. Be persistent and do not give up when things are not working in your favor.
You shall not be denied of your dream for making your goal come true!
YOU CREATE YOUR OWN FINANCIAL DESTINY.
