Today I learned another great piece of advice from Greg Secker’s free eBook on Forex trading.
Just to remind you all I am attending my client’s (Knowledge to Action) Forex training course in Sydney this Jan – 2011. I have seen so much good information about their products that I wanted to attend the Forex 2 day course myself.
I have started my training by firstly reading their free eBook on Forex training which you can download here=> Ultimate Forex Trading Secrets FREE eBook. Which I highly recommend even if you are not interested in Forex training. The information contained within the eBook on the importance of mindset can be applied to any part of your life.
Just like most life changing “projects” if you are not 100% into giving it a go then forget it. I have seen many wealth creation strategies appear on our PropertyTalk.com website for the last 7 years. Most are legal and work but many people fail at using them for the simple reason they are too lazy to commit to the effort.
Greg Secker does not gloss over the simple fact that you need to work hard at Forex trading not only in education but mindset.
I can tell you 5 ways to make money from property but unless you get your bum off the sofa you are not going anywhere. The issue however is most people either blame the messenger or the product/strategy for their failure. I have no hesitation in telling you that 99% of the time the failure falls directly in the lap of the person buying the product or strategy.
Anyway – I digress.
This is what I learned today about how many people fail at attaining their life goals (if they have any in the first place).
Have a look at the chart below. The vertical line is defined as “Crisis Time” and horizontal line is defined as “step by step time”.
Most people only change when they have to. They wait until the last possible moment when all around them disaster is happening before they make a change.
For example if they hate their job and dream of being their own boss they normally stick with the job until they have no choice to leave due to health issues or that they will end up being fired the next day. This is called the “panic leap”. You panic and leap at your goal and most of the time you will miss because the goal is normally too far away.
What you should be doing is taking little steps each day towards your goal. If you want to run your own business and not be an employee then this is a big process which normally takes little steps to achieve. The first steps should be around working out what you are good at (and passionate about) that people want to pay for then work from that.
Take little steps towards your goal every day – don’t try and leap at the goal because you left it too late.
