Start Here: Change Your Mindset

First let me start off by saying that I'm not currently where I want to be financially yet but I'm moving in that direction every day by taking the right steps to financial freedom. I can identify with where many of you are currently. Paycheck to paycheck, and living in the rat-race we call life praying for Friday to come again. Perhaps you had big dreams and they failed before even getting off of the launchpad and now they're a distant memory.dreamlife
My dreams were that I'd be a multi millionaire by 30 (my current age), have Audi R8 with custom rims (my dream car), and a huge mansion on Star Island in Miami Beach. Needless to say, that's not what happened. So I just started accepting the fact that working a 9-5, renting an apartment, tax returns, and a 2 week vacation was all I had to look forward to.
And then I read this book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". Not initially, because I'd had it for over a year. It was a gift from a co-worker that I brought home to bury under mail. But I picked it up one day and said "let me check this out." After reading this book my mind is forever changed because it really unlocked an awareness of my hidden potential and uncovered some buried dreams.The_7_Habits_of_Highly_Effective_People
Dr. Covey helped me to see that the reason why I'm so busy is because I take on other people's headaches and other non priority issues. So at the end of the day the things that actually matter that I wanted to accomplish are pushed to the back burner. He taught me the power of saying N-O. Turn down things that are not furthering your goal of financial freedom and wasting your time. Because guess what, if you say N-O they'll just find someone else to do whatever it is. You have to meditate on what you want, see the end from the beginning as far as where you want to be financially, put a plan in motion with goals that have a set time, and finally execute your plan consistently.
I dare you to dream again, VIVIDLY! See the 4 bedroom house on the corner lot, with a 3 car garage, home theater with the heated recliners and 88 inch 4K TV, heated pool, jacuzzi, elegant kitchen with marble counter tops, stainless steel smart fridge that talks and tells you when the milk is low, etc. DREAM BIG! Then take action to get closer to making that dream a reality. Imagine the day when you walk into your job for the last time and tell your boss I QUIT! I'm encouraging you and myself to never give up on your dreams. Step one to financial freedom, change your mindset, and dream again.
