ADD - Revalue Yourself

Dec 28, 2007
Money can be looked at many different ways. You can look at it from a position of strength and financial integrity, or you can be desperate to buy your next meal. If that's the case, when someone says to you, "You need to organize your finances," it doesn't mean much, does it?

I mean, how can you organize something you don't have? In the past, I used to teach the "organize first, make more later" philosophy, and it never worked. Not once. People who have no money can't get themselves into that mindset.

Whether you're ADD or not, it's not even remotely possible to think about organizing money that you just don't have.

The fist step is working toward making more money.This rule of thumb has worked for me, and the people I've relayed it to have made progress and huge advancements in money generation and in their lives. Here it is: Take whatever you're making right now, and break it down. You don't have to be accurate to the penny, but make a reasonable estimate.

Divide your annual income by 12 to get your monthly income. Then, divide your monthly income by the number of days you work in a month to get your daily income and divide that by the number of hours you work in a day. You'll arrive at your hourly income. Now, double it. Tell yourself, "You have to make twice as much." That's it. That's the answer.

What you don't stop to think is that people all over the world are making at least that much and more for the same skills that you have available to draw upon, even if you think you can't get that much, you can!

Use your ADD creativity and your ADD ability to solve problems. Consider everything you know, too, not just your job. What are your hobbies or special interests? How can you turn those into marketable skills? Use your ADD brain to come up with a way to get twice as much income as you're getting now. You can do it!

And here's the thing... It's easier now than ever before to create a job. You can work at a physical location or a virtual one, using nothing more than a phone and your computer. Just stay focused on finding either a job or a venture that will give you twice the income that you're getting right now.

But then, your ADD may not allow you to work on your own. You just might not be that productive without supervision. It's hard. But whatever kind of activity is going to give you twice what you're earning now, without working more hours, should be your target.

Consider yourself to be worth twice as much as what you're earning right now. Let's say you're working in a department store, making $8 an hour. What can you do that will help you to make $16 an hour? Maybe personal shopper business? Can you charge people $16 an hour to do that? Well, you probably can, depending on your clientèle. This may not be for you, but it's just the kind of thing you need to do. Use your ADD creativity!

But the main idea is to think of yourself as twice as valuable as what you're being paid to do right now. So, figure out something that will pay you double and focus on that. Imagine how you're going to feel when you come up with this, and what an incredible difference it will make in your life. Just put your ADD brain to work. The right situation is out there waiting for you.
