Before we start by one request, if any new insights or awareness land with you during this episode, please send me an email at info at the end Hawkins coaching.com. And let me know what you found. I know the power of this work, I love to hear the impact these conversations have. Okay, let's get into it.Around:
I've got a number of different revenue streams at the moment. And I'm always looking to increase them not by just diving into anything, but with things that are in alignment with my values, my wife's values, our family values, and then also putting it through the lens of our own priorities and what we know about the sort of people we want to do business with.
And, as always, anything like this that requires growth starts with clarity. There's a great book out there. Well, there's many great books like this, that go way back to to thinking Grow Rich from Napoleon Hill, like 100 years ago. But the content of these book is all fairly similar. And the one that was big for me was Bob Proctor as you were born rich. And he talks about a number of different things started, including make sure you've got your insurance in order and all those different things. But then also getting really clear on what your ideal life looks like down to the last set. Because how do you know what you're working towards, if you don't know what you're working towards? And these concepts were just such a breath of fresh air for me, because I'd always like that sort of working middle class sort of upbringing where we never quite felt like you were getting your head, you always sort of had to think Well, how am I going to get anything new here? Or is it going to be hand me downs or but that change is possible. Regardless, if you were born into money or not, there's going to be patterns of, of insecurity, the playing out a few anything from the statistics in, in Sydney, around University dropout rates from people of wealth, but then also their ability to then make a comeback, because what they've learned from their family about building wealth and then finding the right job, and there's a million different ways based on who you are and what you've brought up. But what's still true for everyone isn't there's gonna be patterns of behavior that lead you out of that sense of security, whether it's within yourself, whether it's around finances, or any other part, that is important for you for security. And it requires a change of thinking, whether you believe in the concept of mindset, or just an upgrade of beliefs, your ability to attract whatever it is. So get clarity on where you're heading. Whether you go to the depths of getting very clear exactly what your perfect year looks like, and how much money you will need. I'm a fan of that it actually had quite a big impact for me. And it's amazing what's changed over the years since I did that first calculation of the sort of things that I thought I wanted and what I thought were important and and how that's changed. And now what I've realized is that to make the difference in the impact I want to make in the world, I'm going to need a whole lot more than what I originally set out. Not for me, but because the more money I can have is, the bigger the platform I can build to help people. Now, huge platform is not going to be important for all of you. But I know for some of the people that listen to this, because I've spoken to them directly. And they've told me that they do want to create a big platform, they do have a huge motivation to help change, to create more goodness in this world, to bring more joy, more fulfillment, and to create a better, healthier community, individually and collectively. Because they've seen what's not working, they want to change that. Now, whether you're coming back again to just your own personal preference or insecurity or that bigger platform, it starts and ends with you. So get clear. Keep a journal start filling your mind with what's possible. The other thing that came to mind is what what Michael well mentor around this stuff used to save his salary is one of the worst predictors of wealth. And for this reason, was because what tends to happen is when people get an increase in salary, they also have an increase in spending. Again, these are habits These are behaviors these are repeating. It is in the minority for people to be able to say, Oh, here's more money. Here's a bigger pool of money. Let's actually have a stir algae around that. And if that's you, you're doing that then great. I still know that there'd be things you can tweak there. And they'll be ways you can get better. If you're not, if you know there's a bit of a pattern for you starting to have to think about what that a different way of living would look like. And again, it's got to get down on paper or in some way, it's got to get out of your head and onto something else. Imagine that, whether it's your journal or or a vision board or whatever, but it's, it's your masterpiece of the future. Take the time to do that. Totally worth it. Totally worth it. i This is a conversation that could go much much deeper or leave it for there for now. I'm sure we'll come back and talk around this sort of stuff in the future. But it was a real game changer for me going back now, over 10 years, changing my mentality around abundance, not just financial, but in all areas of life, and being open to change and possibility and all of the full expression of what life can bring.
