Understand your need for money
Consider this before business building! Nobody ever wants money for money’s sake. Money has no intrinsic value. Its value lies only in what it can purchase. So there are reasons why you want money in your life. What are they?
It might be to buy a new house, travel overseas or educate your kids. These are great goals and so is the desire to be financially independent.
Understanding why you want money helps create strength in your motivation for generating money. If deep down you are striving to (for example) improve the lot of your family and to make life easier for your kids than it was for you, then you are generating some very powerful motives for making money.
On the other hand, if your motives extend no deeper than buying new baubles each week, then your motivation may not be strong. You risk being distracted by the next shiny thing dangling in front of your eyes. But if it works for you, stick with it.
Before you can tell other people where you are coming from, you must understand it yourself. So it doesn’t hurt to do a little bit of honest self assessment. Dig deep!
Seek motivation deeper than simply being able to pay your monthly bills. Why stop there! If you can do that then you can achieve the next level of income, and the one after that. You can keep moving forward one step at a time towards realising your dreams.
