It’s a fact. Your level of income will rarely exceed your level of self-development.
But most of us are going to retire broke.
Don’t believe me?
Listen to these chilling facts:
- The average superannuation balance in Australia is only $70,000 (Cooper Review into Superannuation).
- Only 7% of retirees are financially secure. (Association of Superannuation Funds).
- Just 35% of Australians will have any superannuation left at age 75 (RBA).
- We’re likely to live into our mid-eighties, and women are outlasting the blokes by around four years.
So, your self-worth had better be measured in cold hard dollars unless you’re planning on a long, poor old age.
If you feel you’re worth more – then you’ll do everything you can to alter your financial circumstances.
Just what are you going to do to set yourself apart from these scary stats, and excel into old age?
Genius is not innate. Find a mentor to help you progress, and to tell you what to ignore and what to focus on. Don’t think that this game is beyond your skills. Focus on yourself, and realise that you are worthy of success.
In our land of incredible opportunity, it’s disgraceful not to do well. There is no honour in being poor over the medium term. There’s no shame if it’s only temporary. However, if it’s a permanent way of life for you, something needs to change.
You deserve to be living your life’s purpose. You need to embody your purpose with all of your senses and dump your excuses before they take hold of your life.
