In order to help you model J’s success, we’ll dissect his strategy in starting a new life.

1. Boost Your Financial Intelligence

One of the first things J recommends in starting a new life is to learn the difference between being an employee, a self employed person, a business owner and an investor. The foundation of J’s new mindset was in place after reading the following books: Cashflow Quadrant and How to Raise Your Financial IQ, both by Robert Kiyosaki, and Why We Want You to be Rich by Robert Kiyosaki and Donald Trump.

2. Get Out of Your Comfort Zone

When starting a new life, J recommends moving at the speed of instruction. He’s willing to do what he’s asked to do by people more financially successful than he is, and do it as fast as they say so. “If you’re willing to learn from these gurus and put what they say into practice, things will happen for you, faster than you imagine,” says J.

3. Believe Anything is Possible

If you’re going to go through the bother of reading books and attending seminars to boost your financial intelligence, improve yourself, and the pain of eliminating your comfort zone, it will all be for nothing if you don’t believe it’s possible. “You have to fully embrace the business owner in you when starting a new life,” J advises. “The only way to do this is to start thinking like a business owner.” For example, J suggests using assets (i.e. if you want something, buy an asset that produces enough cashflow to pay for it).

Overall, J was able to change his mindset and take action, and now he is financially free. Success leaves clues. You, too, can be independent of a paycheck and boss when starting a new life by following J’s strategies.
