I love the theme this February for Bo Sanchez' The Feast (described as the happiest place on Earth. You need to attend the celebration to know why) entitled PESONALITY. In this 4-week series of PESONALITY, you will learn that money and spirituality are actually not in contrast with each other, in fact, here you will learn that the two should actually go hand in hand. You can be wealthy and spiritual at the same time. In Bo Sanchez' words, "The ultimate purpose of wealth is to help others".
In last Sunday's talk, "Make your 100%", Bo mentioned 3 C steps to happy wealth:
Write down your financial goal for this year. Your monthly and yearly income that you want to receive. Write the things that you want to have and the things that you want to do this year. Calculate the amount equivalent of these goals, by doing so, you would know how much you must earn within this year. Now that you are conscious on how much you have to earn this year, make a list on how you think you can achieve your goals. Do not forget to thank God in advance for making your financial goals come to reality.
Do not be complacent with what you know. Always make an effort on how you can make yourself better everyday. Sharpen your saw regularly. Keep growing your core gifts as Bo Sanchez said. You have to innovate all the time, never stagnate. It is by increasing our competence that we become experts in our own field and it is through our expertise that we can demand for a higher raise or attract more clients.
Another way of increasing your competence is by increasing your financial IQ. Be financially literate. Take time to know your numbers, how to earn more money and how money can work hard for you.
Your wealth consciousness and competence will never be enough to achieve your desired wealth. You must also be a person of character. Find ways on how you can serve your clients, employees, suppliers and the public more. Be a person of integrity and honesty. Always think of how you can serve well before how you can earn more. They say that money is a great test of character as it will only bring out and magnify what you already have and what you already are. It is your character that would really bring you to your desired wealth more than your consciousness and your competence. Much more, people will always remember you because of your character above all else.
3 THINGS TO DO TO ACHIEVE WEALTH
Focus on your goals. Be determined. Continue to persist. Be patient. Do everything whatever it takes to get what you want.Do not let anyone or anything interfere with your dreams. In time, your everyday hardwork and persistence will surely compound.
Think of ways where you can provide value to your customers that would make you stand out from the rest of your competitors. What do you have that they do not have? What can you offer that others cannot? Find your niche. Always innovate.
Too much work can sometimes cloud your thoughts on the big things that you really have to deal with. Just focus on the most important things and delegate the rest to others or outsource the bulk of work that makes your life difficult rather than easy and happy. Form a group, create a team. You can't do everything by yourself. Well, you can probably do but If you want to be big, take some partners with you, work with some trusted people and surely, you can get bigger. There is strength in numbers and powers with more minds. Share your work and your wealth to others and you shall be blessed with more.
See you at the Feast for series 2 of Pesonality, "Magnify your 10%".
"If then, you have not been faithful in handling worldly wealth, how can you be trusted with true wealth?" - Luke 16:11
