One of the most impactful questions ever asked to me relating to my finances was….
How much did you earn last year?
But wait for it…..that was not the impact.
And now, HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT IT?
Now that hit me in the gut.
And opened my eyes.
When I think about how I felt about the answer I was pissed and felt cheated.
I’m a creator, a serial entrepreneur, and a very persistent target driven business man. Now had i ever earned what I was worth? As of 2018 the answer was, NO.
Did that sit well? No, not at all.
But who could I blame, well me that’s who.
So what do you do?
Now I ask you…..
How much did you make last year?
Not how much did you sell or the revenue you achieved. But how much did you pay yourself?
Now, how do you feel about it?
Now push it further. How much did you save last year?
And well HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT IT?
Does business have feelings? No. But you do.
And you matter.
The King/Queen must eat first in order to drive a prosperous kingdom or empire. The health of the leader is the most critical factor in a healthy business. If the leader is not fed the followers will get off course and may wither.
So, the lesson is to put your perspectives in focus and make sure you are taken care of with income and savings.
Now how do you feel about it?
