I'm sitting in our rental van outside Cafe Brazil, an all night hotspot in Dallas. Ty and Neetu are both napping. We wanted to go somewhere to eat and chill for the night, but the van was so much cozier than the actual place. So we ate and then parked outside to jack their free internet.
"I have a millionaire mind." Believe it. I do. Taking naps in between the Millionaire Mind seminar hasn't been too bad. Ty and I usually head up to the room during the sales pitch portions of the seminar, which are too good. Like really, these guys pitch seminars better than Tony Robbins, it's awesome.
I'm feeling pretty good, and even had some naps that felt like total rest, like waking from an average 8-hour monophasic sleep schedule.
Some people never learn.
I'm one of those people. I'm going for try 3, and I'm 24 hours in. The difference is that this time I WILL succeed. Some changes :
I'm eating much healthier now
I'm eating after every nap
I'm sleeping with the lights dim
I'm doing 25 minutes naps
I'm slightly more awesome than before
If I'm not on it by the 28th, I lose $1500. And I like money.
I now know that by day 6, it will be gravy. 5 More to go, ladies!~WOO
I have video games.
Edit: I gave up on financial goals in late 2011 after some huge financial and artistic wins... money shouldn't be taken too seriously. For the record, they were all basically on track, some were being massively exceeded, others were a bit behind schedule, but were all happening.
I set my next 10 years of financial goals on June 28th. That was exactly a month ago.
1 year - Critical Thinking [my first book] out. Blog income trickling. Some info products. Some freelancing. Something else, some X-Factor thing bringing in cash. Net monthly income positive. Health insurance. $50,000 in the bank. Expenses = income per month minimum.
3 years - 3 to 5 books out, many products out, blog income robust, some working on big exciting deals. $10,000 per month total, $5000 passive at least. First property owned. $300,000 in the bank.
5 years - 7-10 books out, many many products out, many passive income internet properties, working on big exciting things, $50,000 per month total, $40,000 passive at least. $1,000,000 in the bank.
