What’s your income goal this year?

That’s a question I often ask people when I speak to groups or consult individuals. Then I write down their answer on the board like this:

What results is an exercise in thinking beyond what they ever imagined. Thinking differently. Thinking abundance, not scarcity. Thinking what is possible, not what they’ve always known.

I want to stretch you a little bit. What if you add a 1 to your income goal?

Just a little 1. That’s all. What do you have now?

Most people would say $40,001. Big deal. By the time you pay taxes, you’re left with a stick of gum and a single copy from the UPS Store.
