Fail, Life, and Memes: DO IT FOR THE PEOPLE HO WANT TO SEE YOU FAIL. How can you make it happen? Let’s go straight to the tips: ✔️Clearly define the dream. The more clearly you can articulate what you want, the better you’ll stick to it in the face of resistance. Get down to specifics. What does the dream specifically look like? How will you know when you have achieved it? Define this! ✔️Understand why you’re doing what you are doing. Why does this dream matter? There is no right answer to this question. The important thing is just that you can answer it, and that your answer excites you and moves you to action. The more compelling the reasons are that you want to achieve your dream, the stronger your resolve will be to continue. ✔️ Fight Your Inner Naysayer 😉 You might be your own worst naysayer. Our ‘inner naysayer’ is that voice that tells us that we can’t do it: we aren’t smart enough, we aren’t rich enough, we aren’t lucky enough, we don’t know the right people, etc., to be able to pull off our unique vision. Don’t listen! Substitute your inner naysayer with an empowering voice. ✔️Take Risks. Nothing great can be gained if you aren’t willing to take risks. Risk isn’t something to avoid, in fact it can’t be avoided. Even a ‘safe’ job has risks. What is safe about it? There is more to life than just money. There is fulfillment and engagement. A lot of time the safe jobs don’t have fulfillment. Learn to embrace and enjoy taking risks. - IF you like the millmentortips drop a comment below!👇 - naysayers success motivation risks millionairementor

Energy, Life, and Memes: GET SO RICH THAT EXPENSIVE BECOMES CHEAP Looking to become financially FREE? Keep reading!👇 Too many people out there are giving ridiculous ideas on how you can become rich and many of those ideas are about cutting back and saving. I can promise you that will not get rich by skipping your daily latte. ✋ If there’s no money coming to your life then you can’t save. Don't let anyone give you the idea that you need to skip your Starbucks coffee and save $5 a day and that will somehow make you rich. - Your boy millmentor coming at you with a few tips to increase your wealth: ✔️Invest in yourself. Successful people invest time, energy, and money in improving themselves. Help yourself out so you are in a position to help someone else out. ✔️Find the right job. You need a job, but you need the right job to start. All companies live from “revenue.’’ Get a job where you can make commissions rather than just a salary and you will finally be in control of how much you earn. 💰 ✔️Get great at what you do. Commit to being great, not just average. Any industry can be a painful profession for average and bottom performers, but massively rewarding for those that are great. Those that live, breathe and eat their profession, those that are obsessed, become great. ✔️Get multiple streams of income. You won't get rich without multiple flows of income. That starts with the income you currently have. Increase that income and start adding multiple flows. - Did you like the tips? Let me know in the comments 👇 - rich tips motivation millionairementor
