I'm often asked how I doubled, or tripled, my income in a short amount of time. My answer is usually so simple that it often doesn't make a lasting impression upon those who hear the answer. They go back into their business and sift through all the other strategies they've heard will grow businesses and then get into massive action.
Or they procrastinate and complain.
And not much changes.
The strategies that make the biggest change in your income are often the least complicated, but take the most amount of faith. Faith that the inner work you do will change your outer circumstances. Faith that you can have wealth regardless of the people, strategies and resources in your life.
I call my secret weapon for success the 'Double A Strategy': Appreciation and Eager Anticipation.
During Thanksgiving, everyone is talking about appreciation. But they are preaching that you should appreciate the good things in your current life. While that is a great way to lift your mood and relax you, often it's not enough to change your life. And that's because most people see it as a list that they rattle off, citing what they are grateful for, but then moving right back into the same mindset about their life and financial situation.
Again, not much changes. You have a moment of 'feel good' and then it's back to reality.
But I use appreciation with a bit of a twist. I appreciate all that I have now and all that is coming. I used this technique to get out from under a pile of debt and double my income in nine months. I began appreciating what little money I did have to pay some of my bills and appreciated the few coaching clients I already had. I also appreciated the money that I envisioned coming to me in the future.
