To Inspire Your Way To A Productive Week
Sometimes you need a kick in the pants and a friendly reminder that what want to achieve really is possible. So, here it is:
Success is your only option.
I wholeheartedly believe that. If you really put your mind to it and decide it’s possible, that success will ultimately come. It takes action, persistence, and consistency, but fundamentally, all you need is to decide that you are going to achieve anything and everything you want to do.
In this series weekly series, I have compiled 47 quotes from businessmen and women, public speakers, online entrepreneurs, philanthropists, artists, television show-runners and more. These people have achieved so much success, because not only have they decided that they are going to be successful, but they have also allowed themselves to fail. That’s one of the most important things to keep in mind. Failure is a part of achieving growth, because no one is just going to hand you the life you want. You must work for it, learn the lessons from any missteps, apply them and find any other way you can to reach your goal.
What I want you to do is find someone new from this series and learn more about them. I’ve even given you a short bio and some fun facts to start things off.
Expand your awareness and maybe even find yourself a new role model. Many of the people on this list are incredibly influential to me, and have completely changed my view of money, business, and success.
“If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.” – Warren Buffett
What I Like About This Quote: I hadn’t heard this until AFTER I realized that passive income is one of the best ways to generate lasting income and truly change your lifestyle. It’s really stuck with me, because I don’t want to work until I die. I have so many other things that I want to do with my life, and none of them are tying myself to a 40-hour workweek job until I reach retirement age and—hopefully retire.
In the economy we live in, it’s important to be creative and think outside the box when it comes to business and income. It’s not just about living within the means of whatever salary you earn, it’s about figuring out other ways to make you money, and then turning around and making your money work for you. That’s a common thread, especially amongst business magnates like Warren Buffett, and something I talk about in Required Reading: Rich Dad, Poor Dad.
Think outside the box. You are more than just your salary and your ability to life with it. Find another way, find a better way, find the way that works best for you.
