I wanna be a billionaire, billionaire, yeah, these are the lyrics of the trending ‘Billionaire ‘song by Teni.
You are probably wondering how is this possible, don’t fret. Everything is possible if only you believe.
It is not so hard to become a billionaire, more so as a woman. With the right tips, you are on your way to having your first billion sooner than you think.
Curious? Here is what to do:
1. Make it your goal to do one thing better than anyone.
Pick one thing you’re already better at than most people. Just one thing and become very focused on doing that one thing. Work. Train. Learn. Practice. Evaluate. Refine.
Be ruthlessly self-critical, not in a way to make you lose your self-esteem but to ensure you continue to work to improve every aspect of that one thing you aim to be good at.
2. Know that excellence is hard work
Financially successful people do at least one thing better than just about everyone around them. Of course, it helps if you pick something to be great at that the world also values, and aren’t willing to pay for.
Excellence is its own reward, but excellence also commands higher pay, greater respect, greater feelings of self-worth, greater fulfillment, a greater sense of achievement… all of which make you rich in non-monetary terms.
The most important thing is to be ready for hard work.
3. Consistently track your progress.
We tend to become what we measure, so track your progress at least once a week against your most important goals. Maybe you’ll measure how many people you’ve helped. Maybe you’ll measure how many customers you’ve served. Maybe you’ll evaluate the key steps on your journey to becoming the world’s best at one thing.
Maybe it’s a combination of that and more.
4. Build routines that ensure you will make progress.
Never forget that achieving a goal is based on creating routines. For instance, if you have a goal to write a 250-page novel, your system to achieve that goal could be to write four pages a day, which will become your routine.
Or if you want to acquire 100 new customers through social media marketing, your routine is to create new content, new videos, new white papers, etc., on whatever goal you have set. Stick to that routine and meet your deadlines, and if your content is great, you will land those new customers you want so much.
Wishing and dreaming about it won’t get you there. Sticking faithfully to your routine will help you make that million.
Set goals, create routines that support those goals, then ruthlessly track your progress. Fix what doesn’t work. Improve and repeat what works. Refine and revise and adapt and work hard every day to be better than you were yesterday.
