“I look forward to being older, when what you look like becomes less and less an issue and what you are is the point.” – Susan Sarandon
“You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream,” – C.S. Lewis
Once you have relearned and turned your knowledge into behaviour, you can approach your finances and begin to develop your financial literacy. You will notice yourself moving from one stage to next level. When you find yourself becoming successful in an area, start seeking a new topic and mow through the stages again. Repeating is the key to mastery in any skill.
Financial success is not a destination. As you become more financially literate, and accomplish more with your money, you may want to seek different ways of making your money work harder for you, just like cycling, you need to keep cycling on the pedal and keep it moving forward. You will realize that your old place of “financial literacy” isn’t sufficient and you need to up your game.
SEEK EXTERNAL HELP
From my personal and professional experience, I managed to cultivate positive responsible behavior to unlearn what is my false belief and relearn to enhance my core competencies to achieve my greater financial success. I then seek expert’s helps, if appropriate where I can leverage on other’s resources which I don’t possess to move to the next level of height. What matters most to me is to keep improving and mastering the required skills to turn it into my money dispenser.
My confidence was built by going through and surpassing the obstacles. I keep listen to my inner voice and keep improving the quality of my work. With the gifted talents, imagination, innovation and creativity, I managed to unfold my potential one by one. With deliberate practice, I managed to keep progress permanently in every aspect, be it physical, mental or spiritual. Play it like a winning game – winners persist. Losers quit. That’s simple and to win big, I must dare to play big! The power of persistence is that it always rewards the doer. Perseverance and patience pays huge & handsome rewards. “In all of living, have fun and laughter. Life is to be enjoyed, not just endured.” – Gordon E. Hinckley
Take time to celebrate each and every time you make a savvy financial step or accomplish a task. It is worth taking a moment to acknowledge each of your achievement and have some fun and reward yourself. Frankly, it is what I have done before as I take more challenging tasks. Then, take a look around and take stock of your resources. Ask yourself honestly, are there things you can do to further improve your financial status? Are there any new opportunities or achievements to unlock?
If nothing, then relearn, research and repeat until you find everything you believe it is going to be next big thing. Hop to it! Keep moving along that upward spiral. Alternatively, you may take time to reflect and consolidate your resources forward. Keep seeing thing from multi dimensions or with new lenses until you discover some opportunities. Keep trying something new and be comfortable yourself with unfamiliar territories especially when you need new idea so as to tap into new source of opportunities.
ADVERSITY IS OPPORTUNITY
Never be fearful of failure. This is because failure is part of success. Give the appropriate interpretation to it. In fact, there is no failure per se but the right way of discovering the wrong way of doing things. Keep modifying or diverting from your pre-set path until it turns into an appropriate path that can bring you perpetual income no matter how small it is. Slowly and surely, you make it big.
Be mindful that you do not need to start great, but you need to start to be great. To be transformed from literally dying into a lively person, we need to unlearn what we had learned and relearned to be significantly relevant in today’s world. You need to wear new lenses to look at new world. To obtain different results, you need to do things you have not done before. For example, I had interviewed more than a dozen of authors from all over the globe and reviewed more than twenty Ebooks from international authors before I reached my golden age.
At the time of writing, I have not only managed to self-publish 7 Ebooks (3 of which have been upgraded to second edition) but also developed more than 6 training programs under my belt. I also made myself visible everywhere on line, magazines, interview, speaking assignments at several professional institutes and at public speaking seminars. My blogs, books and business suddenly spiral upwards due to the support from these kind people, friends, followers and fans.
At the time of writing, my Google+ has received more than 2.0 million views and is still growing. One thing is certain that every action I took brings me closer to my vision and mission. With technological advancement, my writing and speaking both online and off line will enable me to reach out larger magnitude of people at much faster speed. The overwhelming support I received in fact accelerated my energy, enthusiasm and excitement to achieve more despite my advancing age. I then discover the irony of my life that I have not only improved my productivity but also my health and happiness due to more fulfilling tasks. All this seems effortless due to the support from the universe.
My first published book, ‘Better Than The Best’, tells a true story of how I chose to be better than the makers of the Titanic, a man- made disaster. When I put it down in writing it helps me to see my vision and mission in the near future. That’s the driving force for me to be steadfast to the finishing line, i.e. finish well and strong. The trials and tribulations moulded me to be stronger, sweeter and more superb. Writing Better Than The Best – allowed me to become very introspective, and realize that I must find my purpose filled life before I could help others in similar loss situations of being in deep depression and/or living without purpose in life. Today, I still reside in my home country in Malaysia, where I keep working on my next book training programs, articles, speaking assignments.
Explore the Invisible, Achieve the Impossible and Feeling the Intangible is my inner driving force. The best is yet to come. As more people I helped, more energy I will receive and more desired outcome effortlessly due to the overwhelming support from the universe. I can sense and feel my productivity is growing exponentially over the past three years. I must admit that I couldn’t achieve all these breakthrough results if not from the above proven and powerful recipe that I had acquired. I can safely sum up that Growing Wealth Exponentially is equal to 6Ps. (i.e. Purpose, Performance, People, Process, Profit and Planet). Now you see there is no secret to growing Wealth Exponentially. The Mathematics’ equation is simple as follow:-
- Prosperity = Purpose + Performance + People + Process + Profit + Planet
With the above framework, attaining your financial success is within your reach so long as you are willing to put them into practice. Now it is up to you whether you are willing to do yourself a favourable favour. To increase its effect, you need to keep duplicating the process into other of your venture so as to reap its outcome with much faster rate and speed. I wish you all the best in your journey towards your financial success. If you find this book to be meaningful in your life, please consider posting a positive review, online, when you purchased it. This will help spread the good work of this book. Thank you all for your support!
