I am totally having an “I’m f^cking great at this!” moment. A moment where I know I am a great coach, a compelling writer, a talented speaker, and a powerful entrepreneur. A moment where I see in myself the potential for MASSIVE success.
Today I drafted a financial plan that saw me growing my business salary (as opposed to revenues or profits) to exceed six figures within five years.
Honestly, it’s a very nice plan. It looks good on paper and it feels good in my spirit. I can sleep well enough knowing that if I just keep doing what I’m doing, and getting better at it, then in five years, my business will pay me a six-figure salary AT MINIMUM.
That’s a key word—MINIMUM.
Back to my “I’m f^cking great at this!” moment and the potential for MASSIVE success. To me, six figures ($100,000) in five years is not massive success as an entrepreneur. It’s decent, it’s doable. It’s my LOW BAR.
Hell, even six figures ($999,999) in 5 years is just pretty good.
Massive success–what I feel in my gut lies ahead AND (this is key) what I see and hold the space for IN MY MIND when I visualize, means receiving my first million dollar check by age 35…
…AND…are you ready for this?
…GIVING my first million dollars away by age 40.
Oh yeah, I’m not messing around. I’m going for big philanthropy. HUGE! I’m not saying I’ll be a billionaire (yet). I’m just saying that I feel good enough about who I am, what I do, and what I have to offer to the world, to believe that in seven years time, I’ll have enough money to just give a million dollars away.
Today’s date is May 24, 2013. In September, I’ll be 33 years old. It is all the way on.
I want it. I have what it takes to get it. I can feel it. I can do it. I can see it.
Am I crazy? Nah.
Am I an idealist? Definitely.
Am I naive? We’ll see.
But here’s the thing–there is plenty of precedent for success like this. I won’t be the first to achieve massive wealth in a relatively short period of time. Just look at most celebrities! Pick a genre! Music, film, books, sports…there’s plenty!
Want something more “grounded”? Look no further than the several self-made millionaire and billionaire entrepreneurs in this country alone. There’s more than a few.
Still feeling “yeah right” about it? Read the stories of everyday people who became overnight millionaires, either by winning it, inheriting it, striking oil or gold, or some other means. I know it’s a one in a million chance. Guess how many people I am? You got it. Just 1. So why not let it be me?
I’m not even playing the lottery or hoping some rich relative that I don’t know DIES so I can have it.
Instead, I’m willing to share my gifts with the world. I’m willing to share myself with the world. I’m willing to WORK for it, under a few conditions:
1. It must be fun.
2. It must make me happy.
3. It must help others.
There are some who may read this and hope for my success. Thank you!
Others may read this and say, who does she think she is?
I’ll tell you exactly who I am: I am a woman with a D.R.E.A.M. Now, get on board or move the hell out of my way. Either way, I’m going there. Watch me.
