Remember those times when you had to depend on your parents to provide you money for school?
What about that time when you had no money to buy food and you were starving, but didn’t want to borrow money from your friend?
It wasn’t a nice feeling was it?
Nobody likes to bother or beg other people for money. We all want an abundance of wealth to live our lives the way we want to live them.
And that’s only possible by becoming financially independent.
Having people care for you is great, but being able to care for yourself is even greater! This is exactly why I believe our main priority in life should be to first become rich.
I believe that if you apply these 3 steps into your life you will not only become more clear on your vision, but you will be taking the first steps to declaring your own financial independence!
Step 1 – Make A Commitment
All true success begins with first making a firm commitment and declaration.
A declaration to yourself that you will not only “try” to become successful, but you WILL become successful no matter what it takes.
Far too many people are afraid of making commitments because they fear failure.
Well the sad truth is that failure is a part of the journey. It’s a part of the process. You have to fail in order to succeed.
When I first started my journey as an internet marketer, I was far from productive and failed multiple times before ever seeing any sign of success.
Plenty of obstacles were thrown my way and I felt like giving up, but I didn’t.
I stuck through it reminding myself of my commitment, and I found ways to overcome every obstacle blocking my path. Now here I am sharing this story with you today.
The difference between a person stuck in poverty and a person thriving in prosperity is their mindset.
I believe that if you make a firm commitment to achieving your success, you’ll not only develop a more prosperous mindset, but you will also be taking the first step to declaring your financial independence!
Step 2 – Believe In Yourself & Your Dreams
If you pay attention to the people around you, you will see that many people don’t believe in themselves and their abilities.
We constantly come up with excuses to why we can’t have something or achieve an end goal.
- I’m too old to do it
- I’m not good enough
- This is impossible to do
- I can’t succeed in this
- And the competition is better than me
And then we wonder why we aren’t living the life we want to live.
You have to first develop firm believe in yourself. This also means you have to believe in any dreams that you have for yourself. Your dreams are today’s answers for tomorrow’s questions!
The day you allow someone to suck the life out of your dreams is the day you stop living. No matter how big your dream may be, you can achieve it!
You just have to have unshakable belief in yourself and everything will fall into place as you take focused action on chasing your dream.
Because there is no one but yourself holding you back from your success.
So start to truly believe in yourself today and nothing or anyone will be able to stop you!
Step 3 – NEVER Lose Faith
Doubt or disbelief in yourself is certain to repel your dream away from you. On the other hand, holding onto your dream with faith and purpose will certainly attract it towards you!
The world will be a much better place for having you chase your dreams instead of letting them wither away to mediocrity.
All you must do is form a clear mental picture of the type of lifestyle you want to live, and then you must do all that you can do each and every day with faith and purpose.
Hold onto that vision of yourself in the better environment, but act upon your present environment with all your heart, strength and will power.
You must begin to do what you can where you are, and you must do all that you can where you are.
This is inevitably how you make your dreams become a reality and in the process, how you make the most of yourself.
And the very best thing you can do for the entire world is to make the most of yourself!
First you must make a commitment to yourself, then you must develop a firm belief in yourself and your abilities, and then you must have unshakable faith that you will live the way you want to live if you act on it every single day with faith and purpose.
And nothing will be able to stop your from declaring your financial independence!
