28 Aug Create the life you want
Each month, I prepare a special presentation for the members of my Forever Cash Gold Club that I call the “CD of the Month”. The presentation is mailed on a physical disk to the addresses of gold members and is also posted online so that they can download it. We have covered a wide range of topics recently…
…and one recent presentation was no example.
Together with my wife Michelle, I spoke on the theme: “Creating the life you want.” Here are a few highlights.
Be the leader of your own life. Most of us are accustomed to taking instructions from someone at work, and most of us try to get promotions so that we can be the boss. But in our personal lives and with our personal finances, we often postpone making important decisions, letting fate or others make them for us. Failing to make a decision IS making a decision. Each of us needs to become the leader of our own lives, making the tough choices and taking our future into our hands.
Have a clear vision of your future. Imagine you could go back in time and talk to your past self. What things would you say to them, and what advice would you give them? When you have a clear vision of your future, it’s like a message from the future, telling you what choices to make now to get to where you want to be.
Fight the enemy on multiple fronts. When you want to lost weight, it’s not enough to exercise – you will also need to watch what you eat and make sure you get enough sleep at night. Creating your ideal life isn’t just about making more money – it’s also about taking care of your health, your family, and your professional life. Recognize what you need to do in each area of life and how success in one area affects others.
This was a fascinating presentation, handled mainly by my lovely wife and business partner Michelle. I hope you can listen to the full presentation soon.
