The Wealth Compass

Eventually I started my own business because I wanted to be successful. The Wealth Compass Review As I talked to my sister about my plan for the new business, she said to me that I had a very successful corporate career and she was certain I would be successful in this endeavor. I realized that what appeared to be successful to others didn't feel successful to me. It was then I started to ask the questions, who am I? Why am I here? It has to start with you telling yourself you want to be successful. You have to tell yourself like you really believe it. Your key to succeeding is wanting to succeed and believing it. What is success to you? To some people being successful is just being able to afford whatever they want on the spot. Having the home and vehicle you want. Owning all the toys you want or buying them when new ones come out. Having a healthy loving family really helps to be successful also. It doesn't make sense to be a millionaire without the love of family. But to everyone success may be different. What do you think of when you think of yourself being successful? Nobody succeeds in life by doing things half-ass. Most successful individuals are successful because they have worked very hard to get there. It's not uncommon to see a middle aged man finally being able to afford the toys he always wanted. When was the last time you saw a 20 year old kid driving a Corvette? If you did, it was probably daddy's toy. You have to plan a long road to success. Not many people get a chance to be rich when they are young. If someone was born into money or won the lottery, they may see riches earlier in life. The truth is, you have to start planning to be rich and successful right now if you want it to happen. Take each day and use it, to take you a step closer to your success. If you don't convince yourself to be successful, you never will be successful. Start planning now to be a millionaire. If you are on your 20's and you can put about one hundred dollars a month in to a savings account, you will be more than a millionaire before you retire.

If you are in your 30's, you will need to put about 200 dollars a month into a savings account. Start off with a small goal like this until it is a habit. Think about IRA's; that is another great way to plan on being successful in your future. Mike's statement reminded me of an earlier time in my career when I watched another person get a promotion I thought I deserved. I was bright, had a college degree, all I needed was a chance. Later I looked back on that time and realized the subsequent promotions I received had come after I demonstrated my leadership ability in the very role I had been promoted to. I wasn't given the official title until I had demonstrated that I really was the leader.
