To achieve great things you must master these 3 things: your business/career, your finances, and your health. Commit to mastering these and I promise your entire life will change. You will have a distinct advantage over your competition.
In this post, I will show you how to master your business/career, finances, and health.
What Is Mastery
Mastery is a commitment to get rid of old habits in your life and to take massive action to ingrain better habits. Put 100% effort into improving every aspect of your life. All it takes is patience, faith, and perseverance and slowly but surely you will find the abundance you desire.
Master Your Business
To achieve great success in business you have to rise to the cream of the crop. The top CEO’s in the world all dominate. Bill Gates (Microsoft), Mark Zukerberg (Facebook), and Jeff Bezos (Amazon) all crush their competition, it’s not even close. This is what you have to do, go all in and smoke everyone else.
Here Are 3 Steps To Mastering Your Business
Stand out from the crowd, seek and obtain knowledge. Become a master of your craft. Learn how to be the best salesman. Observe the habits of the most successful people in your industry and emulate them. With more knowledge you will be a reliable resource for your customers and avoid the mistakes other entrepreneurs make.
Here are some books that will help you: “How To Win Friends & Influence People,” by Dale Carnegie, “The Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey, “Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill, and “The Art of The Deal” by Donald Trump.
2. Be Transparent
The most successful people are very transparent. Potential customers like to know who they are doing business with and Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat make it possible. If your business doesn’t have a social media presence, you are always at a disadvantage against competitors that leverage this asset. Not only is it important to have a social media presence, but you must dominate the space. Seek to outproduce and outperform any competitor out there and blow them out of the water. This will put you on top.
3. Be A Good Person and Be Genuine
Be a likable person. People can tell when you aren’t genuine and don’t care. Put the needs of your customers before yourself and it will do wonders for your business. It’s not good to not have respect for people. Go above and beyond for your customers in ways that your competitors don’t and you will dominate your business space by providing value.
Master Your Finances
As a former financial professional, I can attest that many people have no idea how money works. Become a master with your money. Even if you are broke and starting with nothing, take time to learn about the different investment vehicles, functions of money, and how to create passive income streams. Make money work for you.
Understand How Money Works
One of the first things we are taught is to work for money. This is not entirely true because money can actually work for you. Many people have only one source of income. This not good because when they lose that source of income they are broke. The key is to create several streams of income. The more money you can make the more money you’ll have to put to work for you. Then, one day you can make money while sitting on a beach.
Here are 2 steps to Make Money Work for you:
1. Generate Streams of Income
Develop more than one income streams and then diversify them. If you have no income, you can’t survive or make more money. So first get a stream of income (for example: a job). Then find other ways to make more income. Some examples are, getting a second job, start a business, sell a product, or sell a service. Nowadays you can start a business online for free, so this is an option. Your end goal should be to be able to pay bills and still have savings remaining.
2. Make Investments and Generate Passive Income
Once you have savings start to invest your money. Some good investments to make are in the stock market, bond market, real estate, foreign exchange, and hard assets that appreciate in value. Don’t put all your marbles in one basket, aim to invest in as many different places as possible. By diversifying you will be protected by the income of your other investments in case one of these sectors performs poorly (example: stock market crashes). As you generate passive income from your investments, you’ll be making money without having to work.
Mastering Your Money Conclusion
Eventually you should be generating enough passive income to quit your job if you chose. This way you can focus on your own business. If you love your job, that’s fine, but you will be comfortable knowing that your passive income streams give you more options.
Master Your Health
I get it, life is hectic and we have jobs, relationships, and kids to worry about; but I can’t begin to tell you how imperative it is to MAKE time for our health. Take the time to eat healthier and work out. It will make a huge difference in your life.
Adopt Healthy Eating Habits
The average diet consists of pizza, white bread, fruit juices, cookies, french fries, and processed meat. These foods contain high amounts of sugar, unhealthy fats, sodium (salt) and carbohydrates. Consuming too much food is scientifically proven to cause heart attacks, cardiovascular, problems, diabetes, and even cancer. Food is fuel to the body. When we fill our bodies with bad fuel, we set ourselves up for failure.
Replace junk food with fruits, vegetables, whole grain foods, and unprocessed organic meats. You will see a huge spike in energy and mood. Eating healthier has been proven scientifically to make skin healthier. This will enhance those good looks ;).
Go To The Gym
You don’t have to be a body builder but make the time to go for a run. Do some weightlifting. Going to gym and jogging at least 3 times a week is sufficient to good health and physique.
There are many places to learn about working out on the internet. A good book that will help you is Muscle & Strength by Jim Stoppani or for a free alternative, check out SixPack Shortcuts on YouTube. They have workouts that are good for people on all levels.
If you master these things, you will reap massive success on this planet. All it takes is a commitment and nothing will stop you.
Hope this helps. Be great.
