What’s it Like to Become Rich?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to become rich and have the ability to do the things you want to do, when you want to do them, and with whom you want to do them?
Or are you just a college student looking to make a little money selling your used books online? There’s nothing wrong with that.
Are you a laid off engineer looking for a new job or opportunity that will pay you something close to what you were making before? I’ve been there and done that!
It is not enough that I tell you that you can get rich; I must also tell you that you must decide that you want to get rich and that you are commited to take the appropriate action that is required to get rich.
Are you sick and tired of struggling to make ends meet?
Maybe you’re someone who has done OK and just wants to find a way to supplement their retirement income just to have a little bit more to be able to help out friends and family when they need help, or to be able to travel a bit more, or to be able to just be able to do whatever you want to be able to do.
The secret to becoming rich is simple;
- Know what you want
- Take persistent action to get it
So, what do you want? What are your goals?
Have you ever seen a child ask for a cookie and be denied? And he asks again, and again, until eventually he gets the cookie. You can get what you want if you are clear about what you want and you take persistent action to get it.
Did you know you can make money online promoting affiliate programs, network marketing programs, your own products, someone else’s products, or anything else as long as you are clear about what you want and you are willing to take persistent action to get it.
I read in the 7 Habits book by Steven Covey that one surefire way to achieve any goal is to begin with the end in mind. Then work backward and outline all of the steps that are required to reach the goal.
For example, let’s say you’ve determined that you need to earn $40,000 per year to supplement your retirement income.
Based on my experience as a Wealthy Affiliate Premium member, you will need to attract 10 referrals per day with a 20% Premium sign up rate to earn $40,000 per year.
In order to get 10 referrals per day, based on my experience, you will need to get 1500 people to visit your sign up page(s) each day. Here’s an example of one of my sign up pages;
There are several different things you can do to get 1500 people to visit your sign up pages each day. For example you can simply follow the training in the Wealthy Affiliate Boot Camp like I did and you’ll learn how to build a website, create great content, perform keyword research and promote your website on the various social media outlets. You’ll even learn how to create PPC advertising campaigns that will eliminate all of the guesswork when it comes to getting targeted traffic to your sign up page.
If you follow the training you will be well on the road toward attaining your goal. If you need more than $40,000 per year or if you need less you can determine how many people you need to visit your sign up page by crunching the numbers in the Wealthy Affiliate calculator here;
Based on past experience, I know how long it takes, for me, to acquire new referrals, sign ups, and Premium customers.
Therefore I can calculate the number of people I need to contact in order to reach my goals. For example, I can sign up 10 new referrals and 2 Premium customers for every 1500 people who visit my sign up page. So, in order to sign up 2 new Premium members every day, I need to contact 1500 people each day. With this knowledge I can plan, with mathematical precision, the actions required to achieve my goal within the allocated time frame. My goals;
“These are the tasks I have before me today. These are the things I must do this week. These are the things I must do this month. This quarter. This year. If I do these things, I will reach my goals, goals that will benefit my family, my society, and bring my dearest dreams into existence.” ~ Steven Barnes
There are many who will tell you to work hard and keep your nose to the grindstone and you will do well. I do not disgree, but if you want to get rich and do what you love you have to decide on what you want and take persistent action to get it.
And don’t forget to Do the Right Thing;
- Do the right thing and do the thing you love to do and you won’t have to worry about failure and rejection.
- Like minded people will be attracted to you and will want to join your business.
- They will also want to learn from you so don’t ignore them when they ask for help.
- If you’re in the right training program (i.e., Wealthy Affiliate) follow the training.
- Do things the way you’re taught to do them but always be yourself.
- Don’t copy what other people are doing–just do things the way they are doing them and you’ll be fine.
- Don’t try something unless you know the outcome won’t hurt you and your website.
- If you’re not sure ask someone before trying something that might hurt you and your website.
