Whether you’re an entrepreneur running a startup or running a department in a large company, more money must become your mantra. Money is one of those taboo topics in society that we don’t like to talk about. We’ll admire athletes and celebrities and envy them for the money they have, yet we get uncomfortable when the “m” word is brought up when it comes to us. Whenever someone needs additional income, the stereotypical suggestion offered is to “get a part-time job”.

But what if you don’t have the time or energy to put in all those extra hours?


EIGHT VERY TACTICAL AND STRAIGHTFORWARD TIPS THAT CAN BE USED RIGHT AWAY TO CATAPULT YOUR INCOME.

1. Stop doing what you’re doing.

We all know the saying “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.” If you aren’t satisfied, the first thing you must do is stop doing what you’ve been doing because what you are doing is what is creating your dissatisfying, current reality.

What’s great about life is the opportunity to completely change your story and direction overnight. Regardless of your past decisions, you’re always one decision away from making the right one.

2. Don’t let money define you.

Your self-worth has nothing to do with your finances. Whether you have a negative bank account or $5 million in the bank, your confidence must never waiver. If anything, your confidence needs to increase when you are stressed so you are motivated you to never feel that stress again.
Being wealthy is a state of mind, but so is being broke. You are what defines you, not what you possess.

3. Start prioritizing your profits.

When you set up your weekly schedule make sure you start with income producing activities. Of all your activities, 20 percent will account for 80 percent of your income. Figure out what those are. Really think about the top two or three things you need to do to create income. Now put those in your schedule consistently to assure you are creating income.

Constantly ask yourself if what you’re doing is profitable. Focus on doing what you should versus what you feel. Never forget that impact drives income.

4. Start placing a higher value on your time.

Time is more valuable than money. You can always get more money, but you can never get more time. It is possible to become twice as valuable and make twice as much money in the same amount of time. There is nothing more valuable than time invested wisely. We all have the same 24 hours, and it’s what you do with them that determines everything.

5. It’s Ok to say no.

Steve Jobs once said, “It’s what Apple said “no” to that ultimately made them successful.”

If you’re over-extending yourself and committing to too many things, this word will change your life. Say “no” to everything that doesn’t create income for you until you get your income to a place you feel confident and secure. Make a commitment to yourself that you will focus on income-producing activities versus tension-relieving activities.

6. Proximity is power.

Most broke people hang with other broke people and they usually stay broke, together. Elevate your peer group by reaching out to those playing the game of life at a higher level than you.

Find those people because you’ll become a lot like the people you spend the most time with. Their belief systems, their ways of being and their attitudes are contagious. You’re either surrounding yourself with those who hold you accountable or let you off the hook. Choose wisely.

7. Lower your excuses.

As the excuses go up, the bank account goes down. The best excuse makers or “validators” have the smallest bank accounts. The energy and time you spend on creative excuses are better invested in thinking of actual solutions that move your life forward. Excuses are a disease and those who continue making them will continue to have money issues.

8. Shift your focus from victim to leader.

Stop blaming the economy, stop blaming your past, stop blaming your boss or company, and stop thinking the world is out to get you. Charge more, switch jobs, become more valuable. My friend Hal Elrod says, “The moment you take responsibility for everything in your life, is the moment you can change anything in your life.”
The difference between ordinary income and extraordinary income is fast implementation. How quick will you get on your grind to start increasing your income?
