- They accept that it requires about five thousand hours. Now, who's got 5,000 hours to spare? Few of us do.
So, they break it into a thousand smaller chunks of five hours each.
Some invest those five hours of effort once every month of their lives, taking, on average, about twenty years until they're up to eighty thousand dollars per month cash coming in.
Some invest those five hours of effort into each week, so it takes about just about 8 years, on average.
Some invest those five hours of effort every three days, working up to $80,000 per month in cash coming in, in as little as four years. Those who stretch themselves by investing those five hours of total effort each day, tend to hit the really high notes in two to four years, like the country girl using an outhouse at 14, superstar millionaire at 17 (Jewel), or the girl who slept in a car with her mother to become an actress, and less than fifty months later won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar in March, 2000. Even if I question their particular so-called talents, I admire their five-hour shots of superb effort.
You assuredly DO have five thousand hours of effort in you; It's a matter of when you close your mouth and get busy. Put your dream on paper, cut into five smaller pieces; list every human or organization who can say "YES" to some form of help, and then ask for it. That last one is the most powerful of all human magic tricks, and one of the least used. Put to YOUR best use 100 times in thirty days will most certainly will produce more and better results than you've produced in any thirty-day period of your life up until now. But then again, maybe you know better than dirt-broke people who are now earning more in a day than you earn in a week.
Time and again, with recipes and blueprints, printed maps and sheet music, we see the intensely magical, accelerating value of using someone else's successful methods that have been put into writing. the precise day that you actually start getting your plan into writing is the day you make more progress towards becoming a millionaire -- or whatever it is that you most want in this life -- than you've made on any other single day since the moment of your birth.
There you go. the magical, undeniable, guaranteed method of joining an oceanlike wave of tens of thousands of new self-made millionaires every month. Isn't it your turn? Imagine investing an extra five hours every single week with your significant other or your child or brother or friend, exclusively focused on quality time. Or picture yourself investing just five hours per month or per week learning to play a keyboard - Or guitar fret, really enjoying mastery and music together. With either picture, aren't you smiling? If indeed you were going to pick a business to run only five hours per month (or per week), what would you pick? Just for the heck of it, name something you love that you can invest five hours more per month or per week, really, really putting forth maximum effort to be great at whatever it is. theN you can figure out ways to get people to pay you for it.
One thing you would love to earn your living at ----___________________________________----
In all the billionaires (nearly three hundred in America alone) and millionaires (seven million), we only find three perfectly common traits in more than 93% of them:
- Their dream is in writing so they can state it aloud often in ten words or less
With a deadline, it's not a dream anymore ; it's now a goal.
- They ask for what they want more than anyone else around them does.
- They are generating their fortunes -- near-exclusively -- doing something that they thoroughly enjoy…
...something they'd probably do for nothing… and did it for nothing before they got paid for it.
What do you want to be great at? Where do you want to go tomorrow?
If you don't know for sure, you'll probably end up somewhere else. That's why this is written to you: seven of every one hundred people simply shut up and commit to five hours. Do you know what an acronym is? Each letter of an acronymic word represents another word. So, if you understand that LUCK is acronymic for Laboring Under Correct Knowledge, good luck.
