I got to where I am by taking small steps in the right direction.
The small steps that got me on the right path were:
STEP 1: realised that working for my current employer would give me an early death
STEP 2: realised the need to build a future for myself by investing in assets
STEP 3: realised that to buy assets back in the day required deposits
STEP 4: sacrificed the nice things in life and saved up salary for deposits in order to buy assets
STEP 5: invested my time to find the right assets for me to invest in
STEP 6: built an income of £700 per month to live a bare existence
STEP 7: LEFT WORK! I Became the master of my own time, financial future and ultimate happiness.
STEP 8: repeated step 5 over and over again
STEP 9: Shared my knowledge through all my written works such as my books and website
STEP 10: Always be willing to learn and adapt to the changing market conditions
I will never forget these steps as I thank myself every day for taking these steps especially the early ones!
