STOP and picture what it would be like to have TOTAL Financial Freedom, or to be Rich or Wealthy and have FULL CONTROL over your life. Certainly financial freedom is something we are all striving for… right!?! I mean who wants to work for the rest of your life and have nothing to show for it?
…or… Who is happy living paycheck-to-paycheck and having someone else control how much money you can make?
…or… Who likes being told what time you have to wake up every morning, what you must do everyday, and what time you can go home in the evening?
…or… Who enjoys earning just enough to pay off your bills, but never having enough left over to build savings or even to ‘splurge’ on fun things like vacations or traveling?
…or… Who can care less about having enough money in your retirement ‘nest egg’ to enable you to enjoy your ‘well deserved time off’?
You see, you’d have to agree, I think the answer to each of these questions is the same, “DEFINITELY NOT ME!”
So what does it take for you to achieve TOTAL Financial and Time Freedom where you don’t have to work anymore and you don’t have to worry about how much money you are earning? And, is it even possible?
WAIT. Yes it is possible! There is a “Proven System for Financial Success and Getting Ahead” that wealthy people have followed for generations to build financial security and wealth.
If you’re still reading this article, then you’re interested in learning how YOU can set yourself free and gain control over your life, your financial destiny, and your future. I’m going to share some practical tips that can help you gain your freedom.
The main thing to understand before we get started is wealthy people DO NOT Work For Money… Instead, they have Money Working For Them! If you follow these 4 tips I reveal in this article, you’ll be able to reach financial freedom sooner than you ever dreamed.
1. You Must Change Your Values From ‘Poor’ to ‘RICH’!
To become wealthy, you have to think like the rich think. Adopt ‘rich values’ and have a positive attitude towards money. You deserve to be financially free and to have as much money as you need to live the life of your dreams. You need to get educated about how to create multiple streams of income for yourself.
Eliminate ‘poor values’ which is thinking like an employee or a small business owner.
Employees wait to be told what to do and they expect everyone to ‘take care of them’ (ie: their company, their boss, their union, the government, etc). Thinking like an employee keeps you very ‘weak’ minded and ‘needy’.
Small business owners very rarely become wealthy because they think they have to do it all by themselves. They believe, “If you want it done right… you got to do it yourself.” That’s why they start their small business so they can have some level of control and dignity over their life. Sadly, thinking this way has massive limitations for your financial growth potential.
LOOK! If you remember only one thing from this article, remember this…
The richest people in the world build networks… (ie: ‘TV networks’, ‘Telephone networks’, ‘Computer networks’, etc.) and everyone else looks for work. Money doesn’t make you rich — business skills do. You can always use business skills to make as much money as you need or want.
If you believe you need ‘job security’ or you need to ‘play it safe’ and don’t take risks, then you are falling prey to FEAR.
You will never become wealthy working for someone else because you cannot have Job Security and Financial Freedom… You must choose… which is more important to you?
If you desire financial freedom, then start by learning how to control your fear. Everyone of us has a ‘little coward’ inside of them and a ‘courageous person’. Gain control over your fear and don’t let the coward win – let the courageous person win!
LISTEN… Building A Business makes you rich. “If you want to be rich, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!”
2. The #1 Asset A Person Can Build Is To… “Build A Business”
This IS the Secret! You are ready for total financial freedom… aren’t you? Well, you must build your own business in order to achieve it.
3 out of 4 American adults (over the age of 18) want to start their own business. Sadly, few ever do.
The Reasons: Most people can’t afford to invest 5-10 years for their business to become successful… Or they can’t afford the amount of money it takes to build a business.
Face it, the statistics are frightening… this fact is verified by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA):
50% of small businesses fail in their first year and…
95% of small businesses fail within their first 5 years.
Above all, people have a fear of failure and this is why most people don’t start a business for themselves. Instead, they go for “job security” and play it safe.
WAKE UP RIGHT NOW… “Job Security” is a JOKE!
You are well aware of the massive number of company layoffs that are happening today. Why would anyone commit so much of their time to working on something they have NO control over.
The truth of the matter is that you don’t own your JOB, it owns you. You’d have to agree that working a JOB (or a career) is like a form of slavery.
You don’t have control over how much money you can earn, what time you have to wake up every morning, where you have to be each day, what you have to do while you are there, what time you can get off…
By knowing this information, you can learn how to regain control of your life, your time, and your paycheck.
Something else you should consider is how risky your retirement program really is.
If you believe that your 401K and your Mutual Funds are going to take care of you… you also probably believe in the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.
Please don’t get angry at me, someone sold you that bill of goods. Mutual Funds are not safe and not smart and you should never bet your financial future on the stock market.
They are extremely risky for your financial future.
Today, most importantly, you want to own your own business to get your dignity back and take back control of your own life.
WARNING: Don’t start a business that “owns” you either. This is a death trap too. If you are a sole-practitioner, you’ve basically created a business that controls you and not one that you control.
Remember, you are striving for TOTAL Financial and Time Freedom and if you have a small business that requires 110% of your time and energy, this is no better than having a JOB.
Let’s face another harsh reality… when you trade your time for a paycheck, you are nothing more than a ‘slave to the clock’ and you will never become wealthy.
3. Have Courage & Strength To Fight For Your Freedom.
By now you should begin to realize that this is a life or death battle in the fight for your personal financial and time FREEDOM.
It takes courage and it requires strength to win this fight. If you’re an employee you’ve given up your choices… someone tells you how much you make, when you go home, if you get downsized, etc.
You are fighting to be in control of your own choices.
Think about it this way, your boss or your supervisor is a bully telling you how to run your life.
And, the more security you “need”, the less freedom you have. I hate to be blunt, but if you are needy, you are weak. And if you’re weak, you won’t have the strength (nor courage) to win the fight for your freedom.
We already discussed how FEAR is the main reason why more people don’t start their own businesses.
I challenge you to get the courage to not care about what others think. To gain the mental and emotional toughness to withstand the world of ‘big business’. You must learn how to make the yourself stronger.
If you want to be successful today, you have to develop the mental, emotional, and core toughness and get the necessary education for running a ‘big business’.
You deserve your freedom, that’s what the American Dream is all about. Fight for your rights and stand up for yourself. Don’t let others decide your choices or your lifestyle for you.
4. Network Marketing is the “Perfect Business”
The first thing to do is choose a type of business. There are all kinds you can evaluate from franchises to home based businesses, and more.
However, many wealth experts and financial gurus agree that a “Direct Selling Business” (also known as: Network Marketing, MLM, or Multi-Level Marketing) Is “THE PERFECT BUSINESS”.
Although there are dozens of reasons why this is, I’ll briefly share the top 3 reasons why Network Marketing is the Perfect Business.
(A) Network Marketing offers a way for anyone to immediately get into BIG Business with very low start-up costs. In most cases for just a few hundred dollars, overnight anyone can legitimately “be in business”.
This is a brilliant way to get in with low cost and build a very big asset that can set you free. Network marketing gives the average person a fighting chance to take control of your life.
(B) Network Marketing gives you the CHANCE to build some self-confidence and get stronger.
Remember we said you need to increase your strength and courage to become tougher and stronger so you can take control of your life become financially free? Well, network marketing offers you that too.
It helps train you in the “real world of business” so you can learn how to fight for your freedom. You are in total control of your financial destiny.
(C) And finally, Network Marketing levels the playing field for everyone because you get paid for performance… not your educational degree, your family background, your race, or even your current situation.
It’s all about performance! You get paid on performance PERIOD. For example, nothing and no one is in control of how much you make. The more money you want to make, it’s up to you. Simply perform and you earnings are potentially unlimited.
Network Marketing offers all of this (plus much more). If you are part of a good network marketing company, they will do their very best to make you strong enough to withstand the rigors of big business so you can stand on your own 2 feet and grow your business (your asset) as large as you wish.
Bottom line… Network Marketing gives you back the control of your life, your choices, and your dignity – and that’s PRICELESS!
So I’m sure you’d agree that Network Marketing is the perfect business… for some people… check your heart soul & guts to see if it’s for you.
On the other hand, if you like people telling you how much you can earn and what time you have to report to work every day, then it’s not right for you.
I love sharing this kind of information with people who are dedicated taking control of their lives. They don’t want job security but instead want financial freedom.
My recommendation to you is that you “Demand your freedom so badly that you will do whatever it takes to get it. You must have a burning desire in your guts to want to have TOTAL FINANCIAL and Time FREEDOM!”
Also, remember to keep an open mind and give your freedom a chance. There are plenty of ways great Network Marketing companies that you can participate in that will help you achieve your goals.
In short please surround yourself with friends and family who want you to become rich and above all, adopt a positive attitude towards money… and get educated about how to grow your business.
