“Money it’s a Gas” Pink Floyd

by Adam Bean on December 8, 2011

After a recent group call on Skype with a number of other business owners, I picked up on three key problems that we all seemed to have in common.

So I came up with this idea as a quick simple solution to an over whelming problem.

The over all theme that I picked up on from the call was that people were really struggling with was…..

Focus,time and MONEY

As a result of recognising that we all needed a clear solution, I have devised a cunning plan so that we can all help each other achieve some more focus, not take up anymore time, and create more money.

I hate rules (Always have) but sometimes they are an evil necessary! So here is mine. Notice there is only one! Yes I really do hate them!

You have to learn to leverage your time! You are not allowed to let this become a chore that you have to do on top of everything else you are already doing!

In other words…. You have to make this fit into you current daily routine.

Here are some suggested ways of meeting my rule, do these steps when…

  • You are waiting in a bank cue
  • Waiting to pick the kid up from school (no good to me, mine are home schooled)
  • Using the time you spend playing bejeweled blitz is fine! Lol did I say that I play bejewelled blitz out loud?
  • Make the blog posts that you are already writing aimed at helping you achieve this focus

You get the idea, right?

And the thing we are going to focus on is….

Money, cash flow, moolah,$$$$$$$$ what ever you want to call it. You know the stuff that most of us have huge hang ups about. But that is a whole other rant!

As Pink Floyd said….

Money, it’s a hit. Don’t give me that goody good Bullshit!

There is one big problem with money. Most of us say we want more of it, but how much is more?

So here is my cunning plan…  We are going to Focus on creating (notice I said creating) more money (a very specific amount), so that we can buy ourselves more time!

Well this isn’t my idea. It actually comes from Bob Proctor’s six minutes to success (grab the free app here=> Six Minutes so that you can listen to it on the run) which he got from Think and Grow Rich.

In think and grow rich (get yourself a copy of the book or purchase the audio here => Think & Grow Rich Audio) notice the book is called Think and Grow Rich, not bust your ass and grow rich!

Napoleon Hill says there are the six steps that are vital to obtaining more money…

  • You MUST specify an exact amount of money that you desire
  • Determine exactly what you are going to give in return for the money
  • Time limit (this is just a guess) but keep it short so that you focus
  • Create a plan and begin at once
  • Repeat, get the first four steps all together
  • Read your written statement aloud twice daily, see and believe yourself in possession of the money.

I am a long time follower of Mal Emery. He has an audio that is perfect for this situation….

Seven keys to making $100K in the next 100 days (Step 1 & 2 done for me, you decide how much you want and your time frame). Now I don’t know if you think that is a lot of money, or not that big of a deal. But I am pretty sure no one is going to knock back an extra $100K!

Get yourself a Ta Da List account which is free.

Give yourself 1 task per day to complete (That you can fit into what you are already doing, remember the rule) for each day of the week. Come to the Sunshine Coast Social Media Fan Page each Sunday and post the 7 actions you have taken for the week. Better still blog about the actions you have taken! This is all about leveraging your time remember?

Write it out in a statement just like this…

It is the 8/4/2012, I am feeling fantastic today due to the huge achievement of creating in excess of $100,000 in cash that I have in my possession, due to providng excellent value to my customer’s via my workshop’s, presentations, coaching and online training, on Social Media Marketing.

Starting on the first of January 2012 I am going to work closely with a small group of four other to make this happen. I am dead set serious about achieving this goal, so if you are too drop me a comment.

Cheers Beanie

Beanie I am ready to start creating money! Thank you for this post and the reminder of the book Think and Grow Rich, fabulous book.

That is excellent Kama, I am going to do this with a small group starting on New Year’s day. If you would like some details, let me know and I will send them to you. There is no cost involved in $$ terms, but there will be strict tasks to get finished every week, as I want to get everyone over the line (including myself) then turn it into a full-time coaching business.

Cheers BEanie
