Want to know an important secret to making more money? Certainty, or lack of it, is inconsequential.
You don’t need to be convinced you can do it. You need only be open and receptive to the possibility.
So many of high earners I interviewed, when the thought of making big money first crossed their minds, never really believed they could actually do it.
Nor did they know precisely how they would add another zero or two. In fact, most hadn’t the vaguest idea.
Which is exactly how I, a chronic underearner, always felt. One of the most hopeful messages I learned from successful women is that we need not fully believe something is possible, much less have a full-blown plan firmly in place.
We just have to decide what we want and be willing to do whatever comes next.
One day, after interviewing a dozen high earners, I took a post-it note and wrote: $125,000. That was what I was going to make that year. I stuck it to my computer.
I didn’t know how I was going to do it. But I was determined.
When my now 2nd ex-husband happened to see that post-it note, he asked what it meant and I told him. He laughed hysterically.
I laughed too, because it seemed ridiculous. So I took the post-it down and wrote: Yes you can!
And yes I did. And so can you...if you’re willing to do whatever comes next. I promise, you will be shown. (Are you stuck in your comfort zone? Click HERE.)
