For me, the first thing I think of is “How much money do I want to make this next year?” And of course, it’s always a number higher than what I made the current year.
Last year Drew and I were blessed with a significant increase in income, due to a few changes we made in our daily habits of action and in our habits of THINKING. We were guided by a wonderful business coach who helped us.
Everything is first created in our mind, before it is created into reality. I always knew this, because I read a lot of books on success, but it wasn’t until I made “thinking” and “prosperity” a daily practice that I saw huge results.
So, before you make a plan as to what you will DO in the new year, first DECIDE what you WANT. And then make it a daily practice to focus on it.
(In my book, ART, MONEY & SUCCESS, I have an entire chapter dedicated to financial goal setting. The book makes for a great gift for any artist, including yourself! Pick up a copy on Amazon, here.)
I’m going to share one simple prosperity habit that you can implement, starting today, that will help you to increase your income in 2018.
But be aware, for this to work, you have to be diligent and committed to following these instructions exactly as I lay them out.
Prosperity Goal Setting:
- On the 1st day of each month, DECIDE how much money, specifically, you INTEND to make in sales that month. (This gives you CLARITY on what you want.)
- With that intention set, COMMIT to consistently working towards meeting that goal.
- DILIGENTLY carry out the daily habit described below.
Now that you have a few actions written down on paper, plan your day around taking the action.
.The reason this works so well is this: when we get clarity on WHAT we want (the $ amount) then we can ask the right questions. When we ask the right questions, the best answers will come. With answers come action, and with action comes results!
