Monday can be one of two things… It can be a slow, whiny, depressing end to a great weekend… OR it can be an explosive, productive, maxed-out start to an incredible week… Which becomes a month… Which becomes a year. It might seem like just another day– but what if you transformed your Monday stupor into a motivation fueled launchpad for success?
Since I want you to make the very most of this Monday, I’m going to use today’s blog to hit you with some truth.
If you want to increase your income, you must first increase your value.
What do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you want to earn an extra $100,000 this year. That is your GOAL. Now ask yourself the question, ‘Who do I need to become to be an extra $100,000 more valuable? How do I increase my VALUE by $100,000?’
See, most of us are self-absorbed in all the wrong ways. We think we DESERVE to make more money. We think we DESERVE our team’s respect. We think it’s all about us, us, us… But when was the last time you thought long and hard about what you need to DO and BECOME to deserve all of the things you want in this lifetime?
It might sound like a simple concept, but most of us are not currently embodying this idea. It’s Monday. You showed up to the office. You are doing what you “have to do” to get by… To get home and kick back on your sofa. I don’t blame you… We’ve ALL been there. But why do you think you DESERVE to make more money, live a nicer lifestyle, be happier, etc, etc. if you aren’t setting BIG goals and really pushing yourself to achieve them? That’s just crazy!
I want you to take a minute and think about how you could BECOME more valuable… Do you need to be more efficient? A better leader? A better follower? A better communicator? A better people-person?
Or do you need to learn to become a better investor? Maybe hire a coach to help you make difficult financial calls?
What is it? What would significantly INCREASE your value? If you can’t think of anything off the top of your head–try asking someone that’s close to you… And make sure it’s someone who’s not afraid to be honest! Trust me. You’ve got room for improvement. We all do.
Here’s one way to look at it… Most businesses have some amount of “unrealized revenue” (aka the money that’s still “on the table” because you aren’t maximizing all of your available resources.) Similarly, you have your own personal “unrealized revenue”… But it isn’t a concrete dollar amount– it’s your success potential! Your earning potential. Your HAPPINESS potential.
So, one more time– If you want to increase your income, you must first increase your value. Try to repeat those words to yourself this week. When you find yourself dragging, let these words light a fire beneath you. YOU are the only one who can control how much money YOU make. You are the only one who can control the kind of legacy you leave behind. So, what’s it going to be?
