One thing we don’t always talk about when we talk about lifestyle design is…..drumroll, please….cash. Yup: your cash flow. How is it going for you? Are you earning what you’re worth? Is your job or business or other source of cash flow giving you enough for the lifestyle you dream about – the lifestyle you want? Are you able to live freely, breathe easily and just enjoy?
If your answer, like many of us, is “well, no, not exactly” it’s time to get a cash flow makeover. Here’s our how-to:
- Being There Really Is Half The Battle
Sometimes, old expressions stick around for a reason. “Being there is half the battle.” If you’re not in the right place you can’t make the right moves, take the right paths, and so on. If, for example, you want to be a real estate investor but you’re not surrounding yourself with real estate, you’re not there and – you’re not winning the battle.
- You Snooze, You Lose
Think back to a time when you lost an opportunity because you just weren’t proactive enough…. Think of a time when you overslept on a job interview. Went out partying the night before a huge exam. You get the point. If you’re not treating your business like a business, it’s not going to pay off like a successful one. Get serious about your cash flow so the feeling’s reciprocated!
- You Gotta Have Skin in the Game
You can’t win the lottery unless you buy a ticket and risk losing the dollar the ticket costs. You can’t become an ace lawyer unless you shell out some serious dough for law school. If you don’t take a risk, you can’t enjoy the gains!
- Learning Takes Place Over a Lifetime
Are the country’s top earners relying upon what they learned in high school and college? No way! They are out there staying on top of their game, learning, relearning and treating education like the process it is. When was the last time you hit the books?
- Be Yourself
You’re not going to get paid what you’re worth if you’re not being uniquely you. Don’t try to fit in: try to stand out – and shine.
- Give Back; Get Back
Follow your heart and give back to the causes that make your heart ski-jump… You may just find that your career is guided toward success by the things you learn, the people you meet and the work you do when you’re doing heart work.
- Burn the Midnight Oil
Don’t be afraid to give something your all. If being there is half the battle, giving something 110% percent tips the success scales in your favor. Go get ‘em.
