This Is The Secret To Getting Great Results With Money

Here’s the common GREAT STARTING POINT that most often precedes GREAT RESULTS.

God’s Word mentions this common GREAT STARTING POINT. So did the great writer James Allen early in the 1900′s. So did the master teacher Earl Nightingale.

Even if you are unaware of this GREAT STARTING POINT “principle” it’s still up, alive, and working in your life every second of every day..

If you are aware of, but choose to disregard this principle, you’re almost certain to be condemning yourself to strife, worry, struggle and more.

You must be “aware” of this principle AND employ this principle to have the best chance to move from where you are to where God would have you to be in your finances and in every other area of your life.


Simple, isn’t it? Or is it? If it’s so easy, then why don’t you do it more often. The fact that you often fail in your finances and relationships (including your relationship with God) should be evidence enough that you don’t spend the time needed to employ the GREAT THOUGHTS = GREAT STARTING POINT principle.

Is there a process you can follow to best employ this GREAT THOUGHTS = GREAT STARTING POINT principle? Yes.

Here it is.

FIRST, start with the end in sight. Think about it. Where do you want to end up? For example, how much income do you want to earn? What’s your target date to be debt free? How much would you like to be able to give, invest, save by this time next year? The idea of starting with the end in sight applies to every area of your life and to every relationship in your life.

SECOND, determine your motive for reaching the end you now have in sight. Prayerfully think about it. Why is your target important? Again from the financial world–your motive may be to get your creditors to stop calling, or to get the IRS off your back. You have to have a great reason “why” or I promise you when the journey gets tough, you’ll fall away. And by the way, this reason has to be yours, it has to belong to you not someone else.

What’s your motivation to improve your finances? Figure it out. Claim it as your own. Keep it in front of you when the path gets tough. If your motive for financial order and stewardship is anything other than desperately wanting to please God, you will never know what it’s like to enjoy debt free living God’s way.

THIRD, obtain the tools you need. If improving your finances is your target, then pray. Think. Evaluate. Where are you right now? What do you lack? What resources do you need to move forward? I’ll tell you from personal experience that in the area of finances you need a relationship with God for motivation, a coach armed with God’s Word and other tools for accountability, and time for consistency.

There you have it. You can best achieve GREAT FINANCIAL RESULTS when you have a GREAT START based on GREAT THOUGHTS.

You must set a target, have the right motivation, and use the right tools.
