The end of 2016 is fast approaching, and while many of us area already caught up in all of the hustle and bustle that comes with the holiday season, there is actually no better time to regroup, refocus and to start thinking about 2017.
What are your goals for the coming year? For many people, these goals include financial motivations. If you want to finally get wealthy in 2017, here are five ways you can actually do it.
1. Work for your dreams, not someone else’s.
If you really want to start making money and finally be wealthy in 2017, then you need to do something that you are truly passionate about. Without this passion, you are never going to reach your full earning potential. Focus on doing what you love and what you are passionate about, not just something that happens to be in a highly paid field.
Really ask yourself and dig deep to think about what you can see yourself becoming obsessed with. Obsession is the key to true success and it can lead you to real wealth. As real, lasting wealth is not just about money.
2. Dream big, but start small.
Everyone wants big success fast but it’s better to go slowly. Optimize your process first before you try to go big.
3. Give to others instead of yourself.
Most people find this tough to do, but trust me, you can only have so many Lamborghinis and Ferraris and Porsches. They are not as fulfilling as giving back to charities. Remember that true wealth is not just about having the most money, but the most inner peace, too. You will truly feel successful, established and wealthy if you start giving to others.
4. Get healthy.
I know it sounds a little corny, but it is actually true: health is wealth. You can have all of the money in the world, but if you are sick, or dead, you can’t enjoy it. As much as you work and as hard as you work, don’t forget to focus on your health, your body and your mental well-being.
5. Learn online.
We live in such an exciting time, where the world centers around the internet. It is a time where you have unprecedented access to a wealth of information. Thanks to the internet you don’t need fancy degrees, connections or inherited wealth. Everything you need to learn is online with video lessons and free guides, as well as vast educational resources like the Entrepreneur Library.
These five steps can go a long way in helping any individual be wealthier in the year 2017.
