I recently learned that statistically, you are much more likely to have a net worth over $1 million in the US than you are to have a visible six-pack of abs.
I’ve got the abs 💪. I don’t have the $1 million 💵.
My biggest goal is to achieve financial security, so this statistic made me feel great about my chances. So how do I use this to my advantage?
I decided to compare my successful journey to creating abs to my yet-to-be-successful journey toward financial security to see what lessons I could learn.
Over the past five years, I’ve lost 100 pounds and gotten into the best physical shape of my life. How did I do that? I started making slightly better choices every time I ate, and I found a way to move my body and get exercise every day. I consistently do both of these things every day, even when I don’t feel like it. There are so many mornings when I don’t feel like getting out of bed and going to the gym. What do I do? I Do It Anyway.
I’m very proud of the fact that I’ve achieved 7-figures in sales as an online sales and marketing entrepreneur. But, unfortunately, I don’t have 7-figures in the bank to show for it. Why? Because I need to be more disciplined with my money. I have a good idea of what actions I should take with money, but when the time comes to take them, I don’t feel like it, so I don’t.
So what’s the clear difference? I take consistent action every single day to stay in shape physically. I don’t take consistent action every day to stay in shape financially. This Was A Major Wake-Up Call For Me ⏰.
Want to achieve your biggest goal? Then, consistently take daily action towards it. Don’t Feel Like? Do It Anyway 💪. You’ll be so glad you did.
