I am reading a book called Secrets of Six-Figure Women.
The author interviewed women who make six-figure incomes (or more), in different industries with various backgrounds, and shares seven success strategies that are common among them.
Strategy number one is that of INTENTION; a determination to act in a certain way.
While most of these financially successful women denied money was their end goal, they also knew it would take dollars to make their dreams possible.
And were DETERMINED to do so.
When I started my business, our youngest son was a senior in high school.
I graduated from college with an enormous amount of student loan debt. I brought that debt into my marriage to Tom. It was humbling and humiliating at the same time.
I knew I did not want that same burden for Brodrick.
That became my first financial goal for our business. I had nine months to earn enough to pay for his college tuition with my side hustle.
The feeling I experienced when I wrote out that first tuition check, and then the next and the next and the next, is indescribable.
Today is Brodrick's official graduation day from the University of Minnesota's Carlson School of Business.
He is graduating debt-free!!!
If you've ever been led to believe that the desire to make money is less than desirable, I'm here to say that's nonsense.
A declaration of intention is only the first strategy of financial success, but it is the most crucial one of all. When you’re clear about who you are and what you want, it’s amazing the things that can happen. When your declared intentions are aligned with your deepest values and highest priorities, when conflicting objectives cease to control you, you’ll have harnessed within you a powerful force that literally pulls you toward your desired future. — Secrets of Six-Figure Women
