I’ve tried and I’ve tried, and I JUST CAN’T FIND IT…

Ahh Time-

Often time can be more elusive than luck, or superbowl tickets. We’re all ‘gifted’ with the same 24 hours in a day (minus the 5-8 we should spend sleeping) And yet, some of us seem to be able to do so much more than others with the exact same amount of this resource.

Abraham Lincoln managed to teach himself Law well enough to pass the Illinois state bar exam while pounding railroad ties into the ground; The Steves as I call them (Jobbs and Wozniak) invented the personal computer while attending Stanford; and my lawn hasn’t been mowed in 5 weeks because “I’m just too busy”

What gives?

As you may or may not know, we here at Sterling Business Group select students for and run an advanved training initiative where, with our guidance, students have a realistic chance at ultimately creating a six figure income, which I have seen to be absolutely life-changing.

One of the central requirements for entrance into our program is the ability to set aside dedicated time to not only be instructed in business technique and strategy, but to actually carry out the work.

The official minimum a client must have to be considered is 5 hours per week. We typically stress that 10 per week is more realistic. Our research had shown that once clients begin to really see significant income 12 is more typical.

Now, let’s look at those numbers. When I say six figures, let’s say bare minimum (100k). That is just over $8,000 dollars per month in income (obviously nothing to sneeze at in today’s climate) Let’s say, that in order to do that well, the minimum was AT LEAST 12 hours per week of actual work.

52 weeks at 12 hours is 642 hours of work annually. That comes to almost $156 PER HOUR of accumulated income.

Why do I say all this?

Because to this day, people still complain about “Not having the time” to try to pursue their dreams… It seems that far too many of us have grown ‘mature’ and worse, complacent in our maturity. Everyone thinks that the moment in their lives to passionately chase their dreams has simply passed them by.

All-nighters and grandiose dreams are a thing of childhood. Under-paid work for an over-demanding boss 8-10 hours per day (if we’re lucky) is today’s reality. Everything else is spent just trying to maintain this lifestyle of ‘barely making it’ so that we can deceive ourselves into thinking that this is ‘comfortable’ and not just familiar.

We all have routines. We all have plans and procedures in our lives. You would be surprised at just how many things you do exactly the same way every day of your life (and just how much of that time is wasted)

And yes, to acheive something new and different, you WILL have to change and do things you havent done  before, at least not in the same way.

Throw out your TV. Unsubscribe yourself from all of those emails you read dreaming about a better tomorrow. I guarantee you, you can find the time to make yourself into the success you want to be; or better yet the time to have someone who has helped others to do it help you to.

If you still cant, maybe you can Try This instead. They’ll even send you a free report (doesn’t everyone love reading email?)
