an idea that came to me today...

11 replies
Here's a thought, or a question, that came to me today while out running, that I didn't really have the answer to and wanted to put to you guys...

I was thinking about two common goals.. to get fit, and to get rich..

It struck me that getting fit seems a much more attainable goal. Everyone knows what needs to be done. Excercise + work-out + eat healthily = you will become fit. You can break it down into daily, weekly, monthly programs and once you stick to that program there is NO WAY you can fail.

So what about the getting rich goal?

As far as I can tell, there is no simple "program" or roadmap for financial success. Is that the reason many people find this a difficult goal to achieve?

I wonder, Is there a similar analogy to the fitness program that can be applied to financial success?

I don't want to ramble on, I would rather hear your own thoughts and see where the discussion takes us...

    Running on a treadmill or outside is one of the best exercise for human's cardio fitness and total well-being. But running is also very tough especially when you are running alone, uphills or long distance.

    Many people will walk whenever they feel that their lung is gasping for more oxygen,their legs starts to get wobbly and that their heart is pumping wild. This is where the runner actually failed to achieve their objective because this is the part that actually pushes their cardio fitness, metabolic rates and lactid acid tolerance threshold to the next level by putting their respiratory system to some kind of stress.

    The same thing goes to our business. When faced with some adversities, many people would give up and choose to quit instead. If they always choose to walk when running uphills rather than endure the hardship, forever they will never achieve the powerful cardio and total well being that will actually make them a better runner.

    Similarly, if you keep on quitting your business whenever you feel demoralized because of poor performance or because of low self esteem in your self, forever you will never be successful in your business.

    So my advise is when running uphills don't stop if you are too tired but slow jog instead. And when your heart rate is getting stable after a couple of minutes, pick up speed and run again to your finishing line.

    Which means if you think that you are demoralized and about to quit your business because of some stress or failures, take it slowly and do small things one at a time. When your confidence level is up again after realizing that you can actually accomplish things if you do them one at a time, pick up your speed and scale up your business and never look back again!

      I think for the first goal which is getting fit, there are some limits to the number of options you can take to accomplish this.

      For the second goal there are much more ways to do this which are all very different. Which approach one should take is different for every person.

    I was also searching internet for a reliable way to get rich.Every thing I tried have a
    loophole.Before playing casinos with real cash I thought that when I play with real cash
    I can become rich! That was thus; play with $1 first then play with $10 after that play with $100 so on.Nothing happened!I played casinos with cash hundred times.But never achived my much awaited financial freedom.
    Now also I am planning to make money with HYIPS .But sure this time I will become rich.

    Many people have programs that teach you how to grow rich. Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill comes to mind. Every money making program online has growing rich as it's understood goal.

    That being said, if you have a great idea, make your program. It may just work!

    Actually, there is a very simple formula for getting rich. And there are many ways to express it. Here's one according to Zig Ziglar:

    “You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want."

    Build a business offering a product or service that people want and can afford and use the above quote as your guide. You can't go wrong.

    It works the same in internet marketing, in the beginning, your long term goal may seen impossible, but when you break it down into segments, it seems more real. As you work your goal it gets easier. Yes, there are days more bitter than others, just like working out some days you don't feel like working. But the effort you make to go to the gym on your most horrible day makes that difference.

    I've been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I've failed over and over
    and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed."
