Of course, you are busy. Every one is busy.
But when will it change?
The reason people don’t have enough time is not because they were given less time than anyone else. It is more because they frequently have either or both of these ideas: – “I can do it better myself” or ” I can do it quicker myself”
These two phrases lock a person into less time.
Wealth (of money and time) is hidden from those who must do it themselves. Wealth reveals itself to those patient enough to train others.
The secret is to have the patience to train others so you can get more done.
Have you ever thought of becoming a millionaire? I know I have. DO you ever think of it daily? If you haven’t thought of it up to 5 times a day. The best time is for you to start NOW!!!
Yay!!! But.. But… Remember, all wealth comes with privileges and responsibilities.
Some of you might be wondering, What sort of privileges? I’m talking about money freedom, time freedom, relationship freedom, spiritual freedom, physical freedom, and my all time favourite, ultimate freedom… to discover and develop my own unique genius, and yours too.
To be a millionaire, doesn’t actually mean vast wealth, its being free to be, do and have whatever you desire, as long as it hurts no one and simultaneously… helps others.
I like to call it “shameless exploitation in pursuit of the common good”.
What are these 4 simple and easy steps?
- decide that it’s okay for you to become a millionaire
- practice and imagine yourself enjoying an abundant lifestyle
- spend less than you earn ( this is gonna be tough especially those of us who love to shop) deduct 10% off the top of your income and deposit it into your investment account…phew!!!
- invest the difference… your 10% surplus… into investments that can earn at least 10%.
So invest away in whatever program appeals to you. And I just don’t mean any. You get the gist, right?
Feel free to comment if you agree.
As I sat at my desk, late Friday evening, after work. I wondered, ” What was my motivation for the day? Where did I apply? How did I apply it? What was the end result?
I couldn’t place a single quote in my head. Why? They all flew by, and I was too busy to catch them. So I am giving you the chance to catch one for yourself today , make good use, and push yourself up to another level in any field of success. Here’s to those dreams that are coming true.

Hey there, seems to me that each day , we hunt, and explore for tips that give you more opportunity to add additional activities to your day.
My hunting party went well… here’s to your delight –
- focus on the critical crew – 85% of the things you do account for only 15% of your results and vice versa
- learn how to procrastinate – (the right things) i.e put off the 85% and tackle the 15%
- throw away your “to-do” list. – Write the top priority items at the top in the 15% box, lower priority at the bottom, only work on th etop of your list
- reward yourself for doing the right things
- do your FTF (feared things first) – thus unconsciously urging yourself to tackle tougher tasks
- do a daily power hour – not necessarily an hour – for planning (rehearsal)
- exercise – helps you work harder, longer and think more clearly
- layer your activities – use your waiting time productively
- write out your goals daily
- just say “No” – don’t let other people dump their “monkeys” on you.
You might be wondering , how does this apply to me as an entrepreneur, or business executive, business owner, housewife, or whatever niche you are in.
Wake up !!! Will ya?… it applies to everyone regardless. These are the strategies of an enlightened one minute millionaire. It’s my strategy, can be yours too.

I wasn’t always like this. I had issues, I felt I wasn’t good enough to handle dreams. Dreams which I have always known to be something that ought to paint an inspirinf picture of the future, to energize your mind, your will, your emotions, and empower youto do everything you can to achieve it.
Well, sad to say, 7 years ago, that was not me. I was scared. I went with the usual flow, no standing out performance or outstanding performances. I was just regular me. Exprience after experience, both good and bad, rocked my world. Plain old Ruthie with K, trying real hard to stay alive.
Did I succeed? Hmmm?!!!! Providence wouldn’t even hear of it. Continue reading

You can’t achieve success without consistency, which in turn can’t be achieved if you are working outside your strengths.
To be at the top in business, appreciate the might and force of habit. Be quick to break those habits that can break you – and hasten to adopt those practices that’ll become the habits that help you achieve the success you desire.
J. Paul Getty
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then is not an act, but a habit.
Your daily habits will determine the outcome of your life. Cultivate the right habits and practice them regularly.
Life is nothing more than the sum total of many successful years – successful months – successful weeks – successful days.
If your habits don’t line up with your dream, then you need to either change your habits or change your dream.

Everything coming to me in my life is attracted to me by virtue of the images I’m holding in my mind, what I’m thinking. What I see in my mind, I hold unto it in my hand.
It’s been 100% scientifically proven, eliminating a degree of worry that an affirmative thought is more powerful than a negative thought.
- I Ask,
- I Answer and
- I Receive
I am generating the feelings of actually having what I want. I am paying attention to what I am attracted to.
I’ll take the first step in faith, I don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.Thank you Dr Martin Luther King Jnr (1929 – 1968)for this inspiration.
Enjoy the best of Abraham Lincoln’s quotes on being successful. This president sure had it in him. No wonder he was loved.
“I’m a success today because I had a friend who believed in me and I didn’t have the heart to let him down.”
“Success is going from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.”
“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any one thing.”
“Let no feeling of discouragement prey upon you, and in the end you are sure to succeed.”
“That some achieve great success, is proof to all that others can achieve it as well.”
