WHY THE RICH GET RICHER?

Advertisements

THEY DON’T WASTE ANY MONEY

The idea of saving money is a boring idea of becoming rich.

Honestly speaking, this is the only way to do it – unless you have something up your sleeve (rich family), then you are at the wrong place.

It’s the only way because it does not matter how much money you make, but if you’re someone who does not spend or invest wisely, you’re not gonna end up becoming rich.

Look at some of the rich and famous people who made millions (or billions) worth of dollars, but ended up bankrupt. How is that?

It doesn’t matter how much money you make as long as you don’t know how to keep it.

Advertisements

THEY LOOK AT THEIR NUMBERS DAILY

I personally know entrepreneurs who rarely look at numbers daily.

This is a bad habit.

Numbers don’t lie. It gives you a quick insight on where does your business (or personal finance) will end up heading.

This may sound trivial to some – reality is, knowing the figures gives you better understanding of your financial situation so you can make better decisions; short and long term-wise.

If your sales increases, look at expenses you did that made sales go up.

If your sales hit rock bottom, look at ways to cut your expenses that don’t seem to support sales.

And so on. You get the idea.

Advertisements

THEY WORK SMARTER, NOT HARDER

Photo by Burst on Pexels.com
Advertisements

The idea hard work equals results no longer applicable these days. And the rich know this too well.

Yes, you still need to put in the effort – but it needs to be smart effort.

If you’ve been doing the same thing over again without much results, the answer is not to do more of the same thing.

Instead, you should start finding alternatives.

This is why successful people often continue to learn and be adaptable; so they can easily adopt new ideas or methods to get results.

THEY MAKE THEIR MONEY WORK FOR THEM

People often like to say rich people are lazy. It’s far from the truth.

Rich people know that they don’t always want to work and not to enjoy the success they have accomplished.

So, they are always on the move to make their money to do the work such investing in companies, stocks and so on.

This is how most rich people stays rich despite of always looking like they don’t work at all.

There’s nothing wrong with that. Who wants to work for their entire life?

Advertisements

THEY VALUE MONEY MORE THAN OTHERS

There’s nothing wrong about valuing money more than everything else.

You worked hard for it. Of course you’re going to value it more than most other things.

If this doesn’t sound like you, then you’re going to have a hard time to get rich – or to stay rich.

Most people like to spend money every time they get paid. They like to spend on things that don’t make much sense.

They don’t save and invest. How can they?

This spending habit will leave them constantly living paycheque to paycheque; ends up having to work for their entire lives.

Rich people, on the other hand, knows how money works. They don’t spend their earned income.

Instead, they save a portion of it to invest. Once that investment bears fruit, only then they’ll start spending.

This is why rich people value money more than others.

THEY BENEFIT FROM HAVING GOOD CREDIT

I don’t think it’s necessary for me to talk in depth about having good credit, do I?

In short, good credit means easy access to financial loans, government grants and so on.

Access to such financial support is crucial if you wish to own a house, start a business et cetera.

Let’s move on. 

THEY DON’T KEEP UP WITH JONES

There is a saying that “Poor people like to talk about others, while rich people like to talk about ideas.”

No. I did not say it.

But I can support by talking from my experience itself.

If you pay enough attention, people who are doing well (or well on their way) rarely talk about others. We rarely gossip.

On the other hand, when I talk to average folks, they seem to prefer talking about things that don’t benefit.

Sometimes, I can even sense envy or hate (or both) in these conversations – which is another tell-tell sign of a person who will struggle in life. No offense.

Advertisements

THEY PRIORITIZE SUCCESS OVER LEISURE

This does not necessarily means you should enjoy less leisure time. Nobody wants that.

Instead, create tasks and schedule them where you will only work around specific time and day(s).

Then, use the remaining time (or days) to enjoy some leisure activities ONLY AFTER YOU’VE COMPLETED YOUR TASKS.

This is what I mean by prioritizing success over leisure.

CONCLUSION

For closing, the most important thing is to, quote Nike ‘Just Do It’.

People tend to read and think a lot. We like to, sometimes, even over-complicate things. DON’T.

Just do it. Full stop.

15 money-making strategies That Will Boost Your Productivity

Advertisements
Photo by Andrea Piacquadio on Pexels.com
Advertisements

You feel you have the right idea. You know your company can make the difference in the market. Somewhow, you just can’t make that journey to success. You lack the productivity due to little to no motivation.

In today’s article, I’m sharing with you the 15 ways that can help to boost you productivity level.

1. Wake up Early (Hear Me Out)

This is the ‘early bird gets the worm’ saying. Many successful people swear by it. My personal favorite would be Mark Wahlberg’s schedule. He wakes up around 2 to 3am and start his day with workouts, and work afterwards. In a nutshell, he gets a lot of things done as people just about to get off bed.

There are numerous studies that point out how your work rate improves tremendously since your brain is fresh in the morning able to perform tasks at optimal level – making it the most ideal time to get many important things done early on.

However, I do also know successful people who get up later. If you’re a night owl, then trying to wake up early means you’re going against your body’s natural rhythm. Some even shared that night time is perfect as most inspiration comes around the hour. No one can argue if it’s the truth. Do whatever that works best for you.

However, I don’t recommend this since it causes a lot of setbacks to your body as multiple clinical researches have found that lack of ‘night’ sleep could potentially lead to a number of chronic diseases.

2. Stay away from distractions when you first wake-up.

You open your eyes first thing in the morning and instinctively grab your phone. This is a mistake according to brain performance expert Jim Kwik, you shouldn’t look at your phone for the first hour of the day.

The main reason is that your brain is highly suggestible during this time. As a result, this trains our minds to become distracted because of the release of dopamine we get from our electronic devices. Your productivity also takes a hit for the rest of the day because we want to keep experiencing those good feelings. So, instead of getting to work, we stay glued to our phones.

3. Eat breakfast.

No surprise here. You need fuel to give you the energy to power through the day. Of course, you shouldn’t devour a doughnut and wash it down with a sugary drink.

Think healthier options that involve high protein like eggs or protein shakes. Add in berries, raisins, avocados into green smoothies too and not to forget a boring cup of coffee.

On top of the energy you’ll receive, these types of foods are good for your brain by improving your concentration and memory.

If breakfast is not your thing, like Elon Musk, be sure to take a heavy brunch or lunch like he does when you get the chance to help fuel you to work for the rest of the day.

Advertisements

4. Exercise

If you exercise when you first wake-up, even before eating breakfast, you can overcome your grogginess. This will make it so much easier to start your day early rather than taking things slowly – which is a big ‘no’.

Remember, physical activity doesn’t just improve your overall health. Any manner of exercise will help you de-stress and clear your head.

5. Meditation and stillness.

As I’ve gotten older, I’ve struggled with anxiety. If you’ve ever dealt with this, then you know it can sometimes be almost impossible to be present. It can also make falling asleep a chore or start your day with dread.

Meditating hasn’t wholly erased my anxiety. But it has made an enormous difference. It has helped calm me down and return my focus to what’s going on right now. Best of all? You can meditate whenever and wherever you like, whether if that’s right before bed, first thing when you wake, or when taking a break at work.

Practice meditating with good breathing techniques – it helps.

6. Make your bed.

I think my mom would love this entry, even though I don’t believe that I was a messy kid growing up. Anyway, making your bed is a great way to begin your day productively.

Frankly, I wasn’t really an achiever in making my bed. It was until I found I have sensitive skin that forced me to make it a habit. Turns out, bacteria are accummulated in bed if not care for it. I started making bed after knowing this and went the extra mile to spray the bed sheet and pillows with special antiseptic to kill bacteria that irritated my skin.

The importance of making bed is crucial as it sets your mindset to a winning mentality. During his 2014 commencement speech at the University of Texas, US Admiral William H. McRaven said:

“If you make your bed every morning, you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small sense of pride, and it will encourage you to do another task, and another, and another. And by the end of the day, that one task completed will have turned into many tasks completed.”

7. Recite affirmations.

Initially, I was someone can be seen as reserved. I don’t talk much back then. I just had own priorities to work on. This was something I knew had to work on since building a great business requires you to network with people.

This was where I found out about affirmations. Simple affirmations like “Today will be the best day” can make all the difference in the world. They help you focus on what you want to achieve. These affirmations release ‘positive thought’ neurons’ that can help you build you winning mindset.

8. Read.

Except for taking care of your health, reading is the best thing you can do for yourself. It helps you develop new ideas and perspectives. It helps reduce stress, expands your knowledge, and improves brain function such as memory, focus, and concentration.

If you’ve done enough research about Warren Buffett, or the late Steve Jobs, you’d know how much these people love to read. Truth is, no matter how smart or successful you are, you should never stop learning.

When I started running my businesses, reading got me to stay up to date with latest development in my industry. The business I was in changes frequently, so there was a lot of adapting to do from time to time. This is where reading helped me to remain competitive.

9. Schedule your time.

Mark Cuban once said how he’s not bothered much by ROI (Return On Investment) but more concerned about his ROT (Return On Time). This is an indication of how important time is. It is obvious that unlike, money, you can’t make back the time invested – unless it’s worth the effort. This is why scheduling your time is essential.

If you don’t schedule your time, then you’re going to wander aimlessly and having no direction is the last thing you want whilst running your business. Sure. You know that certain things need to get done. But, which ones are your priorities?

When exactly are you going to cross them off your to-do-list? Are there deadlines that you must adhere to? Creating a schedule helps you answer these questions and plan accordingly.

10. Pare down your decisions.

We all have a limited amount of brainpower. If you spend too much energy making low-level decisions, then you’ll experience decision fatigue. You won’t be as productive when you’re mentally drained.

Look at Mark Zuckerberg, Jack Ma, Bill Gates and so many successful people – what do they have in common other than great work ethics? They don’t get bogged down with looking rich. As long as they have proper attire on, they are good to go. Their priorities are ‘parked’ elsewhere.

I suggest that every night, you layout your wardrobe and prep your meals for tomorrow. Or, you could do this for the entire week on a Sunday. The idea here is to reserve your energy and willpower for what truly matters.

Advertisements

11. Put pen to paper.

There’s a routine called Morning Pages practiced by people ranging from journalist Oliver Burkeman and entrepreneur Tim Ferriss.

The idea is that when you first wake, write 750 words to clear your head. For me, this is the time I’d normally write down (or go through) my to-do list for the day. It will keep me focused on getting those tasks done for the day.

And science has also found that handwriting can spark creativity and help us learn.

12. Focus on yourself.

With so much going on in your life, it’s easy to neglect your own self-care and priorities. Over time, you’ll get burned out. No matter how amazing of a person you are, everyone needs time to rest, play, and learn. If you don’t put yourself in your schedule, then it will get filled with other time requests.

13. Practice gratitude.

It’s been found that those who spend five minutes writing down what they’re grateful for have increased their sense of well-being by 10 percent.

And, as you know, when you’re a better mood, you’re more productive.

You can also pray – thanking everything you have and have accomplished if you’re the religious type.

Advertisements

14. Socialize with your teammates.

Advertisements

Socializing with people have been found to have positive effects to your general happiness, and healthier lifestyle.

This certainly does not mean you should be socializing with people all the time – that’s time wasting.

Instead, schedule your time to allow yourself to kick back, relax and meet people to socialize.

Try working in a coworking space or catching up with a friend or colleague for lunch. And, worst-case scenario, schedule a conference call with your team.

15. Set hard time limits on certain activities.

This idea is similar to ‘Shooting for the moon. If you missed it, you’ll at least land on one of the stars.’ If you need a grade B, work like you’re an A student. If you need $1 million, work like you’re worth $10 million.

This may sound overwhelmingly difficult at first. However, by constantly setting up tough tasks – your mind and body will get attuned to such conditions. At the end of it, what you thought was impossible, was actually do-able.

Conclusion

If you’ve experienced long enough time as an entrepreneur, you’ve learned that there is no one cure for every disease.

In this case, some methods work perfectly for you while others don’t. Every entrepreneur and his or her business is different. So you need to mix and match what works best for you.

10 Entrepreneur Quotes You Must Know

Advertisements

Entrepreneurial quotes are often overlooked these days. We always become at awe whenever we hear a quote but never take it to heart, eventually. Back in my early days, I often use some business quotes from my favorite entrepreneurs as mantras to continue my momentum of working hard to achieve success.

So, without much time wasting, let’s have a look at some of my favorite quotes:

“Success usually comes to those who are too busy to be looking for it.” — Henry David Thoreau

Its pretty straightforward. You have to be chasing success like you need air to breathe. Your life depends on it. That is how a lot of successful entrepreneurs succeed. They don’t work 9-5pm. They work whenever and wherever. They are constantly hustling. Take billionaire Mark Cuban for example. At the age of 12, he started selling garbage bags. Then, he started bar-tending

“There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed.” — Ray Goforth

This is especially true. How often do you hear the naysayers whenever someone tries to create or make a living? How often do you always hear people telling you that you’re not going to make it? Ignore them! These people are just noises. Truth is, they simply envy you. They are afraid that you’re gonna make it. And they are afraid that you’re going to succeed. Nuff said.

“Try not to become a man of success. Rather become a man of value.”Albert Einstein

Einstein is brilliant for saying this. It’s true, success does come in many forms – some from good business, some from bad business. I’m not saying it’s ideal, but it’s just the way the world is. However, Einstein did believe in adding value to society. This benefits not only civilizations but also his or her good name for a long time. On the other hand, people who make ‘bad’ money (or ‘blood’ money), well, their success is often shortlived. Just look at the break up of Standard Oil when they monopolized oil industry in US, or the Sackler family during Opioid crisis. They were considered as successful people, but lacked the standard values and went down with it.

Advertisements

“Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion.”— Tony Hsieh

Mr Hsieh wasn’t the first one to come up with this. I’m probably wrong about this but the point is, while chasing money is good, it rarely lasts very long. You ever heard the expression ‘quick buck’, ‘get rich quick scheme’ and so on? Well, the majority of people who say these are the ones who chase money at all cost – no matter what. They lack the moral values in running business. It’s a short term kind of thing.

However, when you chase your passion, you’ll start to do great things. Your product becomes an ace. Your service is top-notch. People love your business/service. This happens simply because you fell in love with your business. You are passionate about it.

“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”— Winston Churchill

Elon Musk struggles with SpaceX can be perfectly summed up using this quote by the popular former British Prime Minister. SpaceX failed several launches in its early days. In fact, at one point, Elon Musk was thinking of selling Tesla to fund his rocket projects. Each crash taught his team what flaws needed correcting. They kept learning from the mistakes, and eventually, they succeeded. Now, Space X is one of the largest, if not the biggest private rocket company in the world. They continue receiving project from government space agencies to launch satellites and even resupply the ISS.

“If you are not willing to risk the usual, you will have to settle for the ordinary.”– Jim Rohn

This is about similar to the infamous line “Fortune favors the bold.”

Most people give up on their dreams because they don’t want to risk getting out of comfort zone. If you look at successful people (the self-made ones), you’d rarely hear how often they sacrifices in order to become a success. In fact, some even became homeless before they strike gold. It’s all about risking. Are you all in?

Advertisements

“The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones that do.”– Anonymous

I love this quote. It completely separates the real entrepreneurs than the rest of the society.

Successful people tend to look at things differently. They often look at opportunities behind every problem they see unlike the general populace.

Just look at people like Steve Jobs. While most so-called experts of the early days of Apple claim there is no need for a smartphone (people already have computers), Jobs wasn’t bothered by it. He knows his idea is revolutionary – and he was right. He became successful because he saw something that no one else could. He was crazy enough to change the world.

“Do one thing every day that scares you.”– Anonymous

If you’re looking for the first step to becoming an entrepreneur, this quote fits in well.

Entrepreneurs face challenges every day. They solve problems all the time. If you’re looking to become one, you need to start train yourself by doing things that scare you more often.

By constantly facing things that scare you, you’ll start to transition yourself

“All progress takes place outside the comfort zone.”– Michael John Bobak

The people who take the ‘road less traveled’ are the ones who succeed.

Innovation occurs not by working hard in and out – but to also challenge everything we know through experimenting with different ideas. Failure is a possibility but without pushing yourself beyond the limit, you’ll never be able to see the other part of that struggle.

Yes, the success rate is very low – but if you take the easy way out, there is no way you’re going to succeed at all.

Nobody said it’s easy. If it was, everyone would already be doing it.

Advertisements

“I never dreamed about success, I worked for it.”– Estee Lauder

This is where so called entrepreneurs fail to realize before quitting their 9-5 jobs. Running a business requires your utmost attention, not lesser.

This means, it requires more work, responsibilities and stakes are higher. If you feel entrepreneurship is a way to get out of the 9-5pm job, you’re mistaken.

It’s about hard work and much more. What’s worse, most times, it does not even pay off.

Unlike working for a job, your business might still not make any money despite long hours of work. On top of all that, you are also under the pressure of still having to pay everyone in the supply chain.
