Most everyone wants more money and security, but many feel stuck. It could be because you’ve been taught wrong, or not been taught. We all learn to read and write and do many other useful functions in school, but school does not teach us how to make money and create security.
1)Write your Bio: List achievements, awards, accomplishments. Don’t hold back on this. You’ve probably done notable things that you take for granted that would impress an employer or prospective clients and make them want to hire you or do business with you. How are you different?
2)Create your Personal Image: Super Sales Trainer Dave Lahkani says, “Well spoken, well dressed people instill a sense of confidence without saying a word. When people see you, they judge you before you speak, and when listening on the phone, they judge you by the quality of your voice and words.” Image expert Gloria Starr says, “Don’t sell yourself and your abilities short. Add to the perception of your value by always dressing above the ‘average.’ Showcase yourself in a positive light by being articulate. Use exceptional manner and increase your charisma factor.”
3)Write your Plan: This may seem obvious or too simple, but you’d be surprised how few people do it. Take plenty of time – be crystal clear about what you really want; your perfect job or business. Review at least twice a day, preferably first thing in the morning and at night before bed.
4)Engage in a self-development program: Set yourself apart from the crowd. You will immediately feel better about yourself and begin to attract the right people, circumstances and situations. Read inspirational, motivational and self-help books, listen to audios by leaders and achievers you admire who have a lifestyle you desire, attend seminars and live events. For best results, tie in with a coach or mentor who can guide you to specific resources suited to you.
5)Be Bold: Go for it! Apply for that position you’d really love to have but were afraid ask. Start the business you’ve long thought about. Become one of the success stories you’ve read and heard of. You have nothing to lose, and you just may get exactly what you want.
