My target for this year is to increase my monthly revenue by minimally 2M monthly.Two things were supposed to bring in this. The mini spa in Nebbi and a mpuuta joint am planning to do after the spa.We are 70% there.
Some times people spitefully ask, with all the knowledge you have and share what do you have to show for it? Now am the kind that really likes sharing what am doing for various reasons ranging from public accountability, to inspire others which ever way I can, to share lessons of both success and failure hence simplifying other peoples journey along the same route.
The only time I don’t share is when I feel am being boxed into proving a point because I feel I have nothing to prove to any one but myself. Truth is I have nothing to prove to some one who doesn’t see the world the way I do. Some one who isn’t coming from where I’m coming from and not going where am trying to go.
In our persuit for success and happiness we always get drawn into these unhealthy competitions where we have to keep comparing ourselves with others. Where our success and happiness has to be measured in comparison with others something that in most cases leaves us feeling unhappy and unsuccesful.Something that makes us loose sight of our own progression and strides made.Those small gains that are good indicators of where we are headed.

When I look at myself, 6 years ago I letf my job. I had a salary that could barely take care of more than two people. When I left the job, I left the salary behind and embarked on something that was supposed to be bigger than a job that took care of only me. In the begining when I started the business it couldn’t even hire me but a few years later on it could hire some one, then another, then another and then 10 plus.

Then the business couldn’t make a coin in the first year, then it made a million, then ten, then a hundred, the two hundred and we continue to grow. If I decided to look at where I am now in comparison with others, trust me I’d feel like am no where so I look at myself based on where I was 6 years ago and where I am now. That at some point we couldnt make a coin but now we make what we make which is an indication we can make more and more and so much more.

Your focus as a person should be on your personal progression. If am earning 6M annually how do I make it 12M the next year? How do I then make it 24M the year after? How does it go to 50M the year after and 100M the year after. If your goal is to build wealth then you need to keep investing to make another million or two here and there and watch as it adds up over time. Make sure every year there’s an increase and if you can do that then your on the right course because a penny here, a penny there adds up at the end of the day.

That should be the main focus, being better than who you were yesterday. being alittle further ahead than where you were yesterday whilst being fully aware of your circumstances and not worrying about being a head of some body else.
