Here is the biggest reason why millionaires make progress towards their goals. The reason is far more simpler than you think it is.

Millionaires achieve what they achieve by simply doing things.

They do not wait for the right time, the best time or a future time. They break a bigger goal into smaller tasks and get going with it.

As simple as it sounds, this is the main reason why millionaires are far ahead of the rest in terms of their goals.

The reason why you have no action plan towards your goal

Take a few moments to ponder why you haven’t made any progress towards your long term goal.

Pause here right now. Spend a minutes thinking about the problems preventing you from working towards your dream goal.

In all likelihood, your “problems” will be among the following:

  • You do not have enough money to work towards your goal
  • You are too busy and do not have enough time to work towards your goal
  • The situation is not ideal currently to work towards your dream goal
  • Starting a few weeks/months later is the best time to begin

Guess what? All the elite successful people had the same set backs with one subtle difference. They did not look at them as problems to begin work at all.

Sure, some of them were indeed problems that they did not have a solution to. However, that did not stop them from beginning work. They believed they will work out a solution through the journey.

There is just one major differentiator between millionaires and the ordinary. The millionaires begin work on their long term goals while the ordinary don’t. It is as simple as that.

The difficulties faced and the skills possessed between the two groups are rarely significantly different. It is in the mindset where the bigger difference lies.

Go through that list right now. You will find one task or the other to work on right away. It could be anything from the range of thinking of a name to researching online for possible areas. 

If there is absolutely nothing you can do in these morning hours, plan a time slot when you will complete one task towards your goal today.

For example, let us assume that your initial tasks involve phone calling someone. If the wee hours of the morning are too early to make a phone call, you can set up an alarm to remind you to call David at 11 AM.

What exactly you do does not really matter on this first day of your journey. What matters is that you ensure you take at least one step forward towards your goal today.
