Greatness, success, and wealth start with the first step

Wealth and success do not happen by osmosis! Success is scheduled. With that in mind:

  • How many times would you like to be paid today? 
  • Tomorrow? 
  • This week? 

I remember the first time one of my business coaches asked me this question. She followed up with “in my business, I need to be paid every day.”

My friend, so do we, six figure business or not.

But it’s not rocket science, there is actually a formula to wealth. There’s a formula to selling more books. There’s a formula to selling more services and products. No, I’m not selling it to you, but I’m GIVING it to you. (Well, if you’re on my email list or part of my private Authors Academy Facebook Group, which apparently you are or you wouldn’t be reading this.)

Yes, this is my Facebook Group’s Monetize Mondays but today marks a very special Monday: Martin Luther King’s Day. When I think of that name, I think of a man who sacrificed so much for freedom, to the point it ended up costing him his life. So many people declare what they want, but are not willing to work for it. He worked for it AND not just for himself. He marched, protested, preached, taught, and then some, for the sake of justice for those who received none. Martin Luther King, Jr., knew a secret that the wealthy know, but is ignored by those who often work tirelessly with little or nothing to show for it.

Greatness, success, and wealth start with the first step.

“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” And while this is true spiritually, it is true for life in general.

If you don’t believe in yourself, who will? And if you don’t believe in the value of what you have to offer and identify who it is a solution for, then you won’t sell it, offer it, or continually prune it, and…just like with plants, it will die.

Have you allowed your talent and expertise to die in the almighty land of “potential?” Today, especially on such an iconic day filled with honor, reverence, and power, take a deep breath and resurrect what you need. 

“You‘ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn it for yourself.”
