Dear inactive Affiliate, you are part of one of the most incomprehensible categories I can imagine. 🙂
It’s a category with no name, very well established in every single Country of the 5 continents, which counts a huge amount of people, all with the same following contradictions, which set them apart from the category of successful people. In fact they:
- are not satisfied of their current financial situation;
- feel the need to do something to change their financial situation and improve their life quality;
- start looking for something to do in order to change their financial situation;
- finally found something which could work for them;
- understand that in order to be successful they need to change their mental habits and learn how to work smarter;
- don’t make any effort;
- make nothing happen;
- give up, look for another opportunity, starting once more the same circle;
- let years pass by and perpetuate their current unsatisfactory situation;
- arrive at age of 99 and ask themselves: “…what if 50 years ago, rather than missing SFI Opportunity I had been just a bit active and persistent?”
It’s so sad. Isn’t it?
In another post in this blog I said something like: “Keep it simple, be lazy and let the system work for you“. But probably some of you misunderstood my message!
That post actually meant: organise the system first! Only then you can let it work for you, enjoy your money and free time to live a better life, exploiting your talents without having to worry about money.
Rather, just being lazy is not a good thing at all of course, as it can really lead you to live a very difficult life.
I remember that when I was a little child, I often wondered how could it be possible that one of the seven deadly sins in Christian moral tradition was sloth (laziness). Now I understand it much better.
I mean; at that time, it didn’t seem to be such a bad thing to me. Well, it’s true that my mum used to get a bit upset if I didn’t tidy my room or didn’t take the dog out for a walk or other stuff like this…but apart from that how could God possibly be so angry with me for such little things?
I couldn’t imagine myself going to hell just for not having been extremely reactive when the kitchen bin needed to be emptied.
Later on I understood that in fact the problem with laziness, was not exactly about “going to” hell. Rather it had mainly to do with “living a” hell on earth.
And immediately things about laziness started to make much more sense to me. I started to see everywhere signs of the laziness of people, me included.
If for instance someone keeps being lazy about emptying the bin and so does the rest of his family, in a few days or weeks, that entire kitchen will be filled of all kinds of rubbish. A few more weeks and months of laziness and all sort of things could happen and transform that entire house into hell, with putrefaction and illnesses spreading throughout the whole neighbourhood.
This is a little bit extreme of course, but it gives the idea. If a person doesn’t stop being lazy, in the long term a kind of “hell” could happen in any other aspects of his life on earth; money, health, relationships, etc.
So what now?
First of all be ready to make some efforts, be willing to learn, and expect to face some frustration along the road, but be committed to never give up.
You don’t know how to start? I can tell you briefly what I did. Maybe it will help you too:
Make sure your mission and your long term goal are clear.
Meaning: achieve your goal running through your mission.
My mission, as you can understand even from the title of this blog, is to help the maximum amount of people worldwide, to achieve their Financial Freedom.
Not everybody has a clear idea of what financial freedom means. Basically it means to earn enough money to cover all your expenses for the rest of your life, without having to keep working.
In other words it means having all the free time you wish and the money needed to enjoy it. But this is still not precise enough. So keep following me.
What kind of monthly income do you actually need in order to be free?
Being an employee making let’s say 10,000$ (gross) a month in earned income (Vs. Passive Income), working 40 hours per week, 49 weeks per year being subordinated to your boss who could even fire you when he wants, would it be enough to consider yourself as a “free” person?
No, of course, NOT! Because if for any reason you stop working or you lose your job, your earned income immediately goes to zero. And during the past years you certainly heard a lot about struggling Companies, obliged to fire their employees even though they’d been working for them for decades.
It always breaks my heart to see those poor people desperate with no more jobs, just because years before they chose to look for a “safe and secure job” rather than learn how to build their own business and be more in control of their financial future.
And this is exactly what a Company like SFI offers; it provides the tools and teaches all of us, how to build our own commercial network as a component of its network, in order to generate a passive monthly income which we’ll keep receiving even when we’ll decide to stop working.
Which is exactly what our minimum goal has to be: keep receiving a passive income greater than our every day expenses.
So you can understand that making the same amount of 10,000$ a month in passive income, rather than earned income, really makes a huge difference.
Even because if you hope to earn 10,000$ a month through a traditional job, you can probably wait your whole life and maybe the whole of the next one. Rather, if you want to make it through your own SFI Business, you just have to put the system in motion and let it work for you.
So the first question you have to ask yourself, it’s not if you can make money with SFI or not. It’s: how much do I want to earn each month through my SFI Business?
How much money do you need to make every month, in order to consider yourself free financially?
First of all let’s have a global vision of the steps needed:
1st step: create a passive income big enough to pay your current expenses.
2nd step: increase your passive income in order to have an additional amount of money (cash flow) every month, to save and invest in more assets which on the one hand, will create an additional source of passive income for you and on the other hand will add additional financial security to your life and your next generations.
Many people all over the world are enjoying a luxury lifestyle. Why shouldn’t you?
3rd step: use the cash flow generated by your investments, to pay for your luxury stuff and/or purchase more assets, which in turn will keep producing even more additional income and so on and so forth…
Do you think all this sounds very interesting? I’m sure you do. Because you understand that this is a real and probably the only path you can follow nowadays if you are really serious about becoming wealthy.
In the next articles I will post over the next days, we’ll see each one of the 3 steps described above separately.
In the mean time be happy and stay tuned, because I want you to become a rich SFI Affiliate. Consequently I will too. 🙂
