The Path To Success

Taken from here. I finally found an article that truly speaks from my heart as well.

8 Slow, Difficult Steps to Become a Millionaire.

1. Stop obsessing about money. See money NOT as the primary goal but as the by-product of doing the right things.

2. Start tracking how many people you help, even in a very small way. Successful people know that their success is ultimately based on the success of the people around them.

3. Stop thinking about making a million dollars and start thinking about serving a million people.

4. See making money as a way to make more things. The more things you make the more money you make vs make more money to make more things. "We don't make movies to make money, we make money to make more movies" -Walt Disney.

5. Do one thing better. Pick one thing you're already better at than most people.Just. One. Thing. Become maniacally focused at doing that one thing. Work. Train. Learn. Practice. Evaluate. Refine. 

6. Make a list of the world's ten best people at that one thing. For me, that would be Martha Stewart, founder of IKEA, MUJI and Vera Wang.

7. Consistently track your progress.

8. Build routines that ensure progress.

My problem is, I am indecisive. I have many things I want to do, and I can't focus on one! Did I mention that I want to be a teacher too? A teacher to special needs children? But but, I want to design as well? Produce things people will like? Revolutionize people's home and lifestyle?

Tsk tsk tsk.. Ally Ally...
