Many people want to have a lot of money without any effort. However, this requires self-control and constant work on oneself.
1. Invest in yourself at least 10% of your income
If you don’t invest in your business, you will stay put. If you are not investing in your relationship, you will more often demand something from your partner without giving anything in return. Without developing personal and professional skills, you will not be successful.
Before taking on any new business, you need to study all the details and pitfalls. This can be done both independently and using paid training programs. As a rule, if a person pays for a lecture or attending a seminar, he listens more attentively and absorbs information.
Learn from the experience of those who are professionals in their field.
Sign up for helpful online courses. Buy books. Fortunately, a rich selection of extensive literature on various topics is presented today.
Self-improvement is not only about education and skills improvement but also about basic needs such as nutrition. Instead of spending money on fast food, buy healthy foods. Sometimes it turns out to be more expensive, but it’s worth it.
2. Devote at least 80% of your free time to learning
Most of us are consumers rather than creators. For some, it is enough just to receive a monthly salary from their bosses. They do not strive to achieve anything more.
A common belief and justification for inaction is lack of time. It really isn’t enough if you spend it thoughtlessly on social networks or watching TV shows. How can you get rich without doing absolutely nothing for it?
It is better to devote free time to education and self-improvement. This is the key to a successful future and achieving goals. The most successful people on the planet devote a lot of time to reading. They never stop learning.
3. Work not for money, but knowledge
While you are young, work to learn, not to make money.
Robert Kiyosaki, businessman, investor, motivational speaker, writer
You need to devote to learning not only most of your free time but also working hours. Always learn something new at work, understand new challenges, participate in professional events, delve deeper into your work area.
Stagnation leads to dissatisfaction not only with your career but with your whole life. Man needs change. As you improve your professional skills, you open up many opportunities.
Do not forget to rest, temporarily taking a break from work. Getting down to business, do not be distracted by something else. Sometimes in a few hours, you can do more than a week of work.
4. Learn not for fun, but for the sake of creating something of value
In this age of information technology, you can find a huge amount of educational resources. But all this useful information will pass by if you just look at it and not study it in-depth and meaningfully.
First, determine what and what you should learn. Many people read self-help books just for show or to add another bestseller to their reading list. Without understanding the importance and desire to achieve something, knowledge will not benefit you. You simply will not learn anything and will only waste precious time.
5. Invest at least 10% of your income in something that makes a profit
As a rule, when a person starts earning more, he starts spending more. Many people get paid and buy something right away.
Think about sources of passive income. Invest in something that will provide you with additional profit. Perhaps later it will bring in even more money than the main job.
6. Give more than you receive
It’s not about money. Many people want to take as much as possible from life but do not want to give anything in return. They only think about themselves.
Take a mindful approach to life, think about others, and focus on your own gain. Help people succeed and inspire them. Then you will understand that this approach brings a lot more satisfaction and happiness. You will see the world differently and improve your relationships with people.
7. Don’t be afraid to ask for help
Giving no longer means that you always have to act on your own. We all need help and professional advice from time to time.
Everyone is more or less dependent on other people. But it takes wisdom and humility to acknowledge this fact. Think of it not as a weakness but as a strength. When you receive help from someone, sincerely thank that person. Maintain good relationships with people in both your personal and work spheres.
8. Build strategic partnerships that benefit both parties
This will further help to achieve the desired results. But many prefer to compete rather than cooperate. Together with someone, you can create something more ambitious than acting alone.
You know one area, and the other person has the necessary skills in another area. Develop a project plan that uses the skills of both parties. Together you will complement each other. It’s not for nothing that they say that one head is good, and two are better.

9. Look your fears in the eye and multiply your current goals by 10 times
Write down your goals and visualize them daily. Set yourself goals that seem out of reach at first. To achieve them, you will have to change the way you think. You will form habits that will bring you closer to what you want. You will become more aware of all aspects of life.
This approach will force you to get up and take action: study, exercise, exercise willpower, surround yourself with inspiring people. In other words, look for ways to achieve the goal. Even if these are pretty crazy ideas, don’t dismiss them right away. Don’t be afraid to go beyond and surpass yourself.
10. Study Marketing
If you have your own business, marketing will make your job easier. Customers won’t come out of anywhere. You need to be able to attract their attention and keep them. Learn the basics of psychology and communication.
Many fail to succeed because they don’t want to devote time to studying this science. It is the internal component of what you sell that is important and the correct presentation of the goods.
