Several people have asked me what it takes to make over six figures in a year.
The secret applies to ANY niche, market, network, business, career, etc.
The secret, or my secret is simple. Disgusting work ethic. Sacrifice. Networking. Get/Give Support. Mindset.
Let me elaborate, and walk you through a mental process. To start, let’s think about successful people like Steve Jobs, vs anybody you would consider to be a “common person”.
Do you see this person who comes to mind becoming a millionaire one day? Do believe they have what it takes or ever could? Do you think Steve Jobs was special, and too different from “common people”?
Let’s give you some background. Did you know that at one time Steve Job was at some points in his life considered broke, rude, smelly, a hippie who refused to shower, had weird diet habits,lost jobs, had daddy/mommy issues, and lost plenty of friends along his journey?
Do you still think he was so “special”?
Can anybody make six figures?
What is the biggest difference between Steve Jobs vs a “common person”?
Can a “common person” be liked Steve Jobs one day?
Let’s go a little further.
The difference between people like Steven Jobs, yourself, and that “common person” is NOT always what financial background you were born into vs them. It is NOT that he was not at one point a common person who wasn’t even considered special. It’s not the capital he started with, vs what you have. It’s not who he knew vs who he knew.
Did you know Steve Jobs didn’t grow up rich? Apple was started in a garage with low capital and they scoured for investors. A TON of people hated Steve Jobs throughout his life. He got kicked out of his own company! People often called him rude, weird, inconsiderate, pushy, and many other things. It’s not like he started off with millionaire friends in the beginning either. But he made himself special. He made himself important enough that the people who kicked him to the curb had to bring him back.
The difference between yourself, “common people”, and Steve Jobs is not what you may think. The biggest difference, is the mindset he cultivated. Literally, the mindset that Steve cultivated, and maintained drove him everyday, and resulted in shaping this world for generations to come. Think about how powerful that is!
Steve had ideas. He had a vision. He cultivated a mindset practically his whole life, and drove that vision home with relentless execution. He was known for being relentless, and pushy with what he believed. He simply just didn’t give up.
Steve is ONE example in history out of many.
Your mind is so POWERFUL, and you can do great things too. It starts with your mindset!
