If you are given guaranty of achieving a dream goal what would you dare to dream? Whatever it is, write it down on a piece of paper in the present tense as you have already achieved this goal. For example you need to write down, “I am in the possession of million dollars by 31 December 2015.”
2. Develop a Clear Sense of Direction
The greatest discovery in the human history is “You become what you think most of the time.” In other words, The Law of Attraction says that you attract people and events in your life by thinking about them regularly.
Successful people think about their goals most of the time and thus they find new ways to achieve their goals. The author encourages you to write down top 10 goals you want to achieve in next 12 months. By writing down 10 goals, you will start attracting them and they will become your reality.

The author says no matter who signs your paycheck; see yourself always as a Self-Employed. You are the owner of your life. You should take 100% responsibility of your life. You should not make excuses and blame other people for your problem. You should find new ways to earn and save more money to solve your financial problem.
You loose control of your life when you blame others for your mistakes and poverty. You should never think even for one moment that you work for anyone else. See your employer as your client. If you improve your skills and render better service or become more productive, he will have to pay you more money. If he refuses to pay you more, someone other will pay you more.
You should see yourself as the boss of your life, time and personal finance. If there is anything in your life that you don’t like, it is up to you to do something to change that. Improve yourself, learn some new skills and read some good books if you want to become a self-made millionaire.

You should find a job that you would love doing. You should find out what your strengths are and which skills you want to improve while working. You must choose a work-field where you would like to give most of yourself, where you would throw yourself into the job that holds your attention.
Most self-made millionaires say that they will continue doing their job even if they don’t get any money from their job because they are passionate about their job, they love what they are doing and their job give them satisfaction.

They would do that same job on a much higher level after getting more money.
5. Commit To Excellence

The people that are in top 10% level, are not better than you. They just worked harder and longer to improve their skills. You can do the same. Everyone started off from the bottom to reach the top 10% level.
If you want to earn more money, you simply need to render better services by improving your skills and efficiency. Another good thing is when you are really good at what you do, you feel more wonderful about yourself and you work even harder.
Here is the question you need to ask yourself “What one skill if you develop would have greatest impact on your life?” Identify one skill and then start working on that skill and don’t stop until you become an expert.
