RE: Success leads to more success
Success is relative. It can be defined by something small like reading a book about investing or as big as being a billionaire. There are countless ways we can be successful. Just starting something can mean success.
Sometimes when we aren' t feeling very successful we have to remind ourselves of our success, especially the small success. We have to count our blessings and be greatful for all we' ve accomplished instead of what we haven' t accomplished. When we are greatful for what we already have we are naturally propelled forward toward greater success.
I am greatful for all the success, no matter what size it is, I' m experiencing. I trust each accomplishment will lead to more success. Four years ago I didn' t know anything about passive income. It wasn' t until I started a network marketing business that I learned about re-occuring passive income. I started the business to get some tax deductions, and free products, and to help others. Through my business I found out about Rich Dad Poor Dad. I learned about assets, liabilities, financial statements and other ways to increase my residual income. In May I did my first real estate deal with a couple of partners. I now have over $12,000/yr. in passive income and about $12,000/yr. in tax deductions that I claim against my income (including my job income). The really cool thing is that the money keeps coming in even when I' m not working by business. I took a couple of months off to go travelling and the money was there for me when I got back.
I play Cashflow with friends and read Rich Dad books and other financial and personal development books.
Sometimes I' m too hard on myself for not being more successful (i.e. not able to quit my job yet, have more money, be independently wealthy). I have to remind myself I' m further ahead than I was four years ago and each year gets better and better. Not only has my income increased, my financial I.Q. has also increased, I' ve found a way to get out of the rat race, and I' ve met some great people. I' m also not hanging onto money like I used to and love to donate every month. It' s also very exciting to teach my son about residual income. He can' t wait to start his own network marketing business when he turns 18. I have also helped some of my friends and family learn about residual income.
If you are like me and are seeing some results, but maybe not the results you would like to see, be patient and never give up. Success is what you make it. Celebrate each and every success and more will come.
