The Heartless Money Maker Costume

This creature only thinks about where the money is.
What careers pay the most?
What’s the hot business of the moment?

The problem is that the hottest thing now probably won’t be the hottest thing in five years.

Focus first on finding your passion. If you do what you love, you’ll rise to the top of your profession. And the money will follow.

The Material Illusionist Costume

This is a person who has everything – the large house, the hot cars, the best gadgets. And the debt to go with them all.
They appear to be rich, but it’s an illusion. They use sleight of hand to look like they’re loaded.

In reality, the main thing they’re loaded with is payments – a house payment, car payments, credit card payments.

Focus on creating wealth, not displaying it. It’s what the truly wealthy do. It’s great to have nice things, when you can pay cash and not miss it.

The Soulless Millionaire Costume

This person has accumulated wealth. But they feel a void.

They feel a void because, in their pursuit of monetary success, they forgot that there are other forms of riches. The greatest riches lie in your relationships.

Money and loneliness often go hand-in-hand because, once you accumulate wealth, you’ll never know if people are just after your money.

So focus as much energy on social success as you do on building monetary success. You won’t be a BIGG success if you don’t have anyone you love to share it with.

The Duplicitous Devil Costume

This beast says one thing to your face and something else behind your back. Their words and their action are often not aligned. They cast their magic spell and hope the effects never wear off.

But they do. So focus on being honest with people. It’s better to confront a situation head on than to make promises that you can’t keep.

The Self Killer Costume

This person is so worried about pleasing others that they forget about pleasing themselves. Over time, they kill their true nature, taking on whatever form people expect from them.

BIGG success is life on your own terms. It’s your life. You’re the main person who has to be happy with your decisions.

The Doubting Demon Costume

This beast doubts everything about itself.
They doubt that they have the right education.
They doubt that they can get the job done.
They doubt that they will ever reach BIGG success.

Focus on what you do have, not what you don’t.

Focus on what you can do, not on what you can’t.

Focus on your strengths, not your weaknesses.

The Frivolous Fantasizer Costume
This person is perhaps the scariest monster of all. They have all the talent they need to be a BIGG success.

But they choose to remain stuck. They are stuck because they don’t have a clear vision of what they want to do with their life. They are stuck because they waste day after day working on frivolous tasks because they have no sense of direction.

Focus on creating your vision of BIGG success. Then establish meaningful milestones that make you stretch, but are definitely attainable. Then set your priorities and put all your energy into the task at hand. It leads to BIGG success!
