Implementing a great idea however, is hard work. That is why very few of them ever get put into place.
Dreaming is easy and you’ve probably met thousands of dreamers in your lifetime. They sit on the porch steps (or couch) and pontificate about one thing or another. They are always certain that they can solve the worlds problems. Unfortunately, their ideas never move beyond the cosmic ether of their brain cells.
Implementing even the simplest of great ideas is hard work. Newtons law is not easily broken “objects at rest tend to remain at rest and objects in motion tend to remain in motion unless acted upon by an outside force”. The momentum of the natural universe is difficult to overcome. You need to push steadily against the natural momentum and then continue to do so even when it seems hopeless.
Do you know the difference between successful people and the rest of the mass of humanity? Successful people have a dogged determination and press toward a goal that they have at the expense of all else.
Would you like to retire with a million dollars? Discipline yourself early in life to not buy every shiny toy that comes along and instead invest that money in a compounding interest account. When all your friends are taking lavish vacations each summer you prudently take the family on modest outings and find ways to have fun together without all the glitz and glamor of Disney World. Instead of buying new cars that depreciate immediately you purchase used models that provide the same level of transportation. You wake up 30 years later at 55 with your house paid off, a very nice little nest egg built up and ready to retire debt free with over a million dollars in assets to live comfortably the rest of your life.
Want to make a million dollars a year? Start by finding small passive income models that you can build, replicate and improve. Yes, you’re giving up your evenings and weekends for a while to perfect your systems and models with little to show for it at first. You refuse to give up and after a couple of months you see a steady income. Document your methods and then find ways to outsource so that you can replicate the model much faster with no more effort on your part. Suddenly you find yourself with a $1000 a month passive income. You go back now to tweak and test new methods to increase the performance of each model. Every time you find something that works better you apply that to all your models and suddenly your income per month doubles and triples.
Now you have some real money to work with and you pay a software developer to automate your entire business so that you can multiply the results again and again. Before long you’re at $10k a month, then $20k, $50k and eventually $100k plus per month. Is it easy? No! Is it impossible? Of course not as it’s being done over and over again by people that look no different than the average guy on the street.
All it takes is the discipline to push through problems and difficulty and make something work that the average person says is impossible.
