Step 6: Skills
What have you finely tuned over time? Skills. You may not have started out with the biggest talent in the world, but do you know the most successful people in the world were the ones who had skills? They didn't have natural talent.
For instance, Michael Jordan. Michael Jordan was not the most talented. He was the most skilled. When he was a kid, he couldn't get into his junior league basketball team. He had to work at it.
What have you worked at that you already have and you're not using it to the best of your abilities?
We're talking about you using your talent, your skills, your education, your experience, in a way that you already have it, to a place where you can leverage and earn more.
When we talk about skills, it's something you learn from work, something you learn from life, something you learn from trial and tribulation, something you developed over time. You may not have been the best, but you can do that in your sleep.
Name your 3 to 5 skills and discount nothing. Everyone has skills.
There's an old saying, having skills to pay the bills, and that's true.
You have those skills. They are there. But it's greater than the bills.
You can use your skills to build your wealth.
This reminds me of a story of a guy who lost his job at a very famous coffee shop. He didn't know what to do, but he loved coffee, knew more about coffee than he ever possibly could imagine because he loved it, that was his thing. But he didn't have a job anymore.
He began to start his own blog and talk about coffee and
recommend coffee beans and all sorts of different flavors from around the world. He became a trusted source for coffee, globally.
Because of that, he was able to create a specialized status within that niche, to where he could earn money.
How did he do that? He did advertising and recommended blends as an affiliate. He also did some incredible things when it comes to creating his own blend. He started branding his own blend.
He had skills. Yes, he a little bit of talent, but he had skills.
He didn't have a lot of skills at blogging and setting up websites and things, but he did have a lot of skills at blending and creating coffee.
He used those skills and leveraged those skills to earn more money. You can do the same thing.
List your 3 skills. There may be billion-dollar companies that you worked at that have trained you to have those skills, but you always thought they were for a job. No, no, they were for you to leverage no matter where you go, whether it be to another job or be to start your own business.
List your top skills.
Step 7: Education
What have you learned from within your mind? The word education comes from the ancient word educo, as in to induce, withdraw from within.
The best form of education is not formal, believe it or not. It's from life.
That doesn't mean you didn't have fun and you didn't get an education in school. That means within your school, and good teachers and professors try to tell you this, it's not about the quiz and the exams. It's about what you have truly learned that you can apply to your life.
The real professors, the real teachers out there are the ones who are teaching you in a way that it's fun, where you're enjoying it and where it becomes not a chore but a passion.
Again, you want to make your vocation your vacation. Your education involves that as well. Your vacation. Something you have fun with.
Some of the best learning lessons I ever received, in or out of a school, were based upon fun. When it's fun, the level of interest goes up.
List 3 to 5 lessons that you received, whether it was formal or life education. It's all about what you have learned and how much fun you had learning it.
If you think of your hobbies, think of all the things you've learned through your hobbies. You have a ton of education that you probably didn't even think about. You end up discounting your own education, because you figure, 'Well, there's no money in that.'
Believe it or not, there's money in everything.

Step 8: Experience
Experience is the best teacher. We've talked about talent and skills and education, but the most powerful thing is experience.
You learn through doing. Knowledge is not power; it's only potential power.
The actual definition of power is the ability to act, and when you act, you gain experience.
There are 3 types of experience that are probably the most powerful that you'll come across is:
Life experience. Work experience.
Experience you gain through crisis. In other words, you went through something and you were able to get through them and realize this too shall pass and it made you a stronger person. It taught you things like communication, politics, teamwork, human assessment, and yes, survival. These are things that you, through your wisdom, because remember, wisdom isn't gained without experience. These are things that you can apply right now, from wisdom, from experience.
You can leverage this for money.
Experience will open more doors for you than you ever thought possible. People want people who have been through the trenches.
If you've been through some trenches, if you have been through these experiences, then there's a good chance you can leverage them.
List 3 to 5 experiences that you've had. Focus more on those experiences and think about you can leverage that experience.
You may not have that answer. That's all right. I'm going to talk more about that in step nine, action. List out your experiences, but don't discount anything.
Step 9: Action
Living in the art of the now, you've got to do it quick and you've got to move quickly.
When it comes to your business, it's like going up a winding staircase. You don't know where it's going, but you know you're getting somewhere.
If you are not focused on doing something right away and you procrastinate, you overanalyze, you think too much, that's going to be the key to your failure, no matter what you do in steps 1 through 8.
You can be as passionate as possible, you can be focused on profits and making decisions and really focused on those four powers: Your talent, skills, education and experience, but it means absolutely nothing if you don't do something. You must do something. You must be in the art of the now and make something happen.
You don't need perfection, but you do need action. You can fine tune anything, but you can't fine tune action. You just have to go out and make it happen.
The difference between those who do and those who don't are the ones that always do. In others words, you have to be in motion, always continually moving, especially in today's society.
We are in such a fast-moving society. It's more important to have speed to action over anything else. You have to move quickly and act quickly.
You've just got to go. Don't worry about things. Don't over think things. In fact, don't even think about it. As soon as you've learned 1 through 8, you've written them down, go make it happen.
Some of you are thinking, 'What about step 10?' We'll get to step 10 in a moment, but step 10 doesn't happen if you don't step 9.
You have to make it happen. You have to move quickly.
Let's recap. Without a doubt, you're focusing on your profit, but you can't profit without helping others.
Then there's passion. You have to be passionate about it.
You have to make decisions and build up your mentality.
Then you need talent, skills, education and experience.
Believe it or not, you have at least 3 to 5, if not more, of all of them.
Gather those together and leverage those, while you take action.
When you have a task to do, when you're creating a solution for people in exchange for money, you're not going to do it the hard way. You're going to do what you're talented at.
Are you talented at writing? Then why are you doing videos? You have to focus on what it is you do best.
Do you have a finely tuned skill, for instance, for creating graphics? Then why in the world are you just putting non- graphic presentations in your videos if you do videos?
You have to use what you naturally have and what you've been trained to do best. That comes with talent, that comes with skills, that comes with your education and that definitely comes with your experience.
You have to leverage what you do the quickest, easiest and best, to create solutions and exchange them for money.
That is the best way to do things, because it's easy, quick and it makes you look at your best.
People don't argue when they've seen your best, especially if your best is better than most.
If you put too much thought into this, you will fail. Just focus.
Don't worry, don't over think it. Do it. Make it happen.
Don't worry about mistakes; it's not about making mistakes. It's about doing it now and fine tuning whenever mistakes happen.
The people who succeed the most fail the most. Not because they fail the most, but because they just wouldn’t give up.
We'll talk about not giving up in the next step, persistence.
Step 10: Persistence
The people who succeed the most fail the most. Not because they
fail the most, but because they would never give up.
Let's take Babe Ruth. Babe Ruth has 700 homeruns, yet almost 1,400 strike outs. That's how the majority of successful people are. The majority of successful people do fail. They just didn’t give up.
The majority of people won't take step 9. They'll go through steps 1 through 8 and not do a darn thing. The majority of people who took step 9 gave up at step 10, pursuing, persisting, going after their goal.
The people who are going to be the most successful are the ones who are not only going to understand how money works through profit and their mentality and their passion and making decision and using their 4 talents and taking action, but they're going to be the ones who just don't give up. They don't take no for an answer.
They may not have gotten over the wall, but they may have gotten around the wall or under the wall or through the wall, whatever it takes to get where they want to go.
They're not going to quit.
If that's you, then you will make it. No matter what obstacles are against you, you will make it.
This is the most important part of Talents for wealth. You can take actions over and over and over, but where the majority of people stop in their tracks and truly fail is when they don't persist.
The true definition of failure has nothing to do with you not getting the results you want. The true definition of failure is never persisting, never going at it again and again and again.
If you have the power of persistence, you will go far in life.
Persistence is the anchor to the 10 steps to discovering how to leverage your talents for wealth in Talents for wealth, pursuing your dreams.
Know what you're passionate about. Understand how profit works.
Have a clear understanding of the decisions you must make to remove the things and the people who are not working.
Build a positive mental powerhouse.
Pursue your dreams.
This is all you need to take life to the next level.
Leverage your talent, your skills, your education and your experience. Action!
The most important thing you can do right now is read this again and again, until you understand and begin to take action and begin to pursue the life that you deserve.
