In the last article, we got to cracking the money code. We said your desire comes from God. Now that desire shouldn’t be confused with want.
Want comes from your outer man, it’s you competing with the Joneses, wanting to look better, live better, drive better, and outdo everybody else. Unfortunately, it’s delusional. vanity, an endless chasing after shadows.
It’s a lot easier to focus on your desire than your wants, why? because your desire doesn’t change, but your wants shift constantly like tidal waves. Most people unfortunately focus on their wants and not their desires.
But here is what you must know. Desire is only the start — it will lead to demanding more from life.
That’s all desire will do, it will not actualize your dreams. It won’t create more money, but it will do something else. It will arouse the spirit of money, yes, money is spiritual.
When you desire to have more, you will gravitate towards new ideas, you will seek new networks, learn new skills, build new abilities, become more to earn more. That’s what desire will do, fuel your claim to life.
Secret №2. Commit to give
The second secret to cracking the money code lies in your heart. What’s your heart’s state towards money?
Your attitude towards money determines whether you hoard or release it. Therein lies the not-so-hidden secret of centuries.
It is in giving, you have to set a giving target, release the money for the good of others. Set a giving target.
Here’s something you should do with your giving target. The giving target should be at least 10% of what you could potentially earn.
For example, if you earn 10,000 a month, you should set a giving target of $1,000 this month. That shouldn’t be about tax deduction. Tax deduction is cool, but your giving target should have no strings attached.
Give money to a cause, a friend, a family member, or a complete stranger in need without expecting anything back.
You must have heard of the saying that people who give the most, receive the most, why? because they’re giving with no strings of tax. That level of giving is sacrificial.
The giving secret is tied to your tithing too. Jewish people understand the money game, they give and tithe faithfully. Their whole financial system is wrapped around giving — now you know why they control financial markets.
Secret No3. Create a daily action plan
The third secret is covered in overalls, work. You’ve got to create a daily action plan. An action plan commits you to work and ensures your success.
Set a goal, and work towards that goal, the goal might be to earn $25,000 a month, $30,000 a month, or $100,000 a month, it doesn’t matter how big the target, just make it realistic, and commit to work.
Set a daily action plan to meet the goal. Work in increment steps, your success is hidden in the little things you do every day.
You may not know how to earn $100,000 a month. You will need help, somebody who can teach you how to earn that kind of money.
You will need to invest in yourself and develop your money-earning capabilities. Because if you don’t know how to get to a certain level, then you need to trade money, time, or both to learn how. You will need to exchange your money or time with someone who can help you develop a step-by-step action plan.
You’ve got to figure out what you are willing to exchange for knowledge, and how first you want to learn. Obviously spending time to learn, read and research, takes longer than paying for a course, a mentor, or a teacher.
Now here’s the best part. All you want to be is already inside of you, it’s not as if you’ve to get it from someplace, it’s lying on your inside. Books, Mentors, and Teachers only help to bring it out.
You already have the solution to your problem you just need to think and bring it out. Sit long enough it might be a couple of hours, sit, think, and write down your thoughts.
What comes to mind? what action plan can you make? what three to five things come to mind that you can action?
John Maxwell says, “you’ve got to have your daily five” — Five activities that build into what you’re working on, five wins that you can complete today.
