How much money do you want to make this year?

If you've answered this question with a round number, like, $100,000, or $1,000,000, or an, "I don't know," you don't have a goal, you have a wish.   It's imperative that you know your goal income numbers, specifically.   You must know how much you have to net today, this week, and this month in order to land the yearly salary that will support the lifestyle that you desire.

Here are some get-specific Millionaire Mindset methods:

• What would you like to do in the next year? Move?   Take your dream vacation?   Send a child to college?   Hire someone to manage all of that stuff for you?   Or make it possible for your spouse to leave his or her job to come to work for you?

Don't forget the smaller costs that go along with each large goal, like the cost of providing your newest employee with a company car and fringe benefits, travel costs, tuition, and your existing lifestyle costs.   Don't estimate.   Make phone calls.   Get current pricing on airfare, college tuition, health care, or whatever bills you'll have to foot.   Write it down…you're going to need it.

• Now that you've done the addition, do the division. Break out the calculator and find out how much you'll need to net in a month, a week, and a day.   This will give you a manageable and reachable goal path.

Lots of people say they want to be millionaires.   But if you ask them how much they need to make this afternoon to stay on track for that wish, you'll likely be met with a dumbfounded look.   Once this step is completed, you will be distinctly separate from those with a wishing frame of mind.

• Challenge yourself in the pursuit of your income goal.
If that means working an extra 30 minutes to meet your daily income goal, do it.   If that means negotiating on a deal, even if you're not comfortable with negotiation, then do it.

When you know how much money you need to earn this week, in pursuit of the big goal, you'll be encouraged to do the things that aren't so desirable.   Every time you challenge the boundaries of your comfort zone, those boundaries will soften, and your comfort zone will grow.

A goal like, "I want to make a million bucks this year," will never incite you to rewrite an email or to hold firm on your retail price for an item.   But if your goal is, "I need to clear another $50 today to stay on track," you'll push right through, because you will connect those little tasks with your big goals for yourself, your family, and your lifestyle.

• Successful business people always know their numbers. They rifle off their conversion rates, costs, costs of sale, and precise percentage profits.   Businesspeople who don't know are probably losing money.

• If the thought of calculating, relating to, or speaking about numbers frightens you, then hire a business manager to do it for you.   Investing all of your energy in working in your business, without working on your business, will be detrimental to your income goal.

• The numbers might be simple now, but if your goal is to make a million dollars, or any other impressive number, you'll have to expect the money flow, in both directions, to become more complicated.   Adopt a know-your-numbers attitude now, rather than jumping into a sea of number soup when your chances of drowning are high.

In short, know how much money you need to make.   Then know how much money you need to make this week in order to reach that goal.   Name it, and then claim it!

Picture this image of two boys playing in a garden, trying to catch some birds.

One of the boys rushes around frantically with a net trying to catch the birds. Every time he gets close, the birds fly away. There's lots of squawking, and feathers flying. The other boy stands quietly, holding out some birdseed.

One boy is trying very hard, and is probably exhausted, while the other hardly seems to be working at all.

Which one will get the results he's looking for?

Instinctively you know it's the boy with the birdseed who will be more effective, and a lot less sweaty.

When it comes to marketing and trying to attract clients, you want to act more like that second boy. Unfortunately, though, most people tend to act more like the first.

A lot of the things you might be doing, that are considered to be traditional marketing techniques, might actually be counterproductive. You could well be chasing people away.

Effective marketing techniques used on the wrong market will only provoke resistance, and build defensiveness. You could be running after people, figuratively speaking, with barrages of email, rounds of cold calls and direct mailings, and quite possibly be achieving the exact opposite of what you want.

For example, no matter how effective cold-calling may be for me or someone else, if you detest doing it, your negativity will prevent it from being effective for you.

Even if you are using marketing techniques that are proven to attract clients, if you do them with the negative energy of chasing – if you give off the sense that you are giving simply in order to get - you will end up like the boy who is chasing the birds. Tired and without any bird in the hand.

You want to break down the barriers between you and your prospective clients, not create more of them.

Make sure that the things you are doing marketing-wise, both online and offline, will attract clients to your business. Doing what everyone says is the right thing, but doing it with the wrong energy, won't produce results.   Do the things that feel right to you. That will bring the positive energy into your marketing, and your clients will feel it.

You'll know when you're being a client magnet because it will feel easy. It should feel enjoyable, and you will have an abundance of clients.

When it comes to your business, are you playing it safe or are you putting it all out on the line?

You are the only person on earth who can answer that question. But, the catch is, you have to answer honestly. There is no point in trying to fool yourself.

Somewhere inside of you, do you know that you could be playing a bigger game, reaching more people, raising your bar, thinking bigger, and getting bigger results? If these feelings resonate with you, you have to be honest with yourself about whether or not you've been playing small.

I had to do this myself some time ago. I realized that I had achieved a good deal of business success by most people's standards.   But, I also knew that I had been playing it safe, that I hadn't been putting it all on the line as I had in earlier years of my business. I had become a little bit complacent.

So, I made the decision to step up.

If you discover that you have indeed been playing it safe, the first thing you must do is make a decision. Make the decision to step up.

If you want to reap the huge rewards, you need to take the big risks. You need to make that leap of faith.

I highly recommend that you read Napoleon Hill's book, Think and Grow Rich, to help you make this decision to step up. It will give you the insight and inspiration to help you recapture that feeling of burning desire.

How long has it been since you've really felt a burning desire to do anything? Not just a desire, but a burning desire.

Last year, that feeling inspired me to set a goal for myself – to make a half million dollars from a single project. I knew how to make that much money working all year, but I had never made that much from a single project before.

I ended up exceeding my goal by $130,000.

Focus on the aspects of your business that truly excite and inspire you.   Think about the goals you'd most like to achieve – the ones that might seem more like wishful thinking to someone else – but that you have a burning desire to accomplish. If you're willing to set those big goals, then you must be willing to step up and do what it takes to achieve them.

The results you want to achieve are within your reach. In order for you to reach the fruit of the tree, you've got to make the decision to step up and go out on a limb.
