From the title, you can gather what we’ll be talking about! Day in and day out, you find yourself sitting there with pennies in your bank account. It’s time for you to stop having your bank account look like a temperature, and start having it look like a phone number! We’ve been taught to chase after likes and followers on social media; we haven’t been taught to chase down dollars that can go in our bank account! Do you need the motivation? Keep on reading!
- There’s nothing wrong with money!
This is a truth that many people seem to miss. They see others with money to do what they’d like, and they automatically think that it’s wrong. There’s nothing wrong with generating revenue, being rich, not one thing! Anyone that tells you otherwise most likely doesn’t have any money of their own, or their own motives are misguided. Speaking of motives…
- Figure out your motives for having money!
Stemming from the first point, many people seem to have an issue with making money because they don’t know their own motives. Do you want the ability to help and provide for your family, for your children? Is it your desire to do great things within your community? If you’re motivated by your willingness to help people, I’d say that’s not a bad thing! If we think in relation to a job, your motives at your job are also to make money, but ultimately you’re only helping your job! On the opposite end, if you continue to stay broke, who can you help? Nobody, not a single person!
- You’ve got to know your worth!
For those that are actually attempting to go out and work for themselves to get money, I salute you. However, you have to know your own worth! You have a gift or talent that the world needs, and they will pay you well for it! There shouldn’t be a day that goes by that you wake up broke and disgusted! If there are days like that, each day you wake up feeling that way, you should ask yourself “What am I going to do to change that disgust?”
- You’re not too tired to make money, you’re uninspired!
Some of you are clinging so tightly to fear that it’s driving you crazy! You’re holding onto procrastination and perfection; it’s causing you to settle and be okay with having less than what you’re worth! You’ve hidden your gifts and talents for so long that you’ve given up on yourself! Once again, the world needs you to display your gifts and talents, and people will pay you for it! I cannot stress that enough!
- At some point, you have to invest money to make money!
Let’s be clear about this one; we all want to make money. However, sometimes you have to invest a little bit in order to make your revenue grow! There aren’t too many places that you can go and learn for free; you have to pay for it! Why wouldn’t you believe that it carries over into generating revenue in your own business? For me, I started writing my first book in 1997. I didn’t launch that book until 2011! The only reason was because I didn’t invest in the knowledge needed to make it happen sooner! Invest in wise counsel; that will be the difference between making $1,000 and making $100,000! Last, but not least…
- Some of you hate your jobs!
It’s okay, you can admit it! You’re sick and tired of being stuck in traffic and punching a time clock. You’re drained of having to work twice as hard for pay that doesn’t seem worth it. I really think that many people are scared to talk about quitting their jobs; however, I’m an advocate for quitting your job and starting a business. I quit my job, and I was making an easy six figures a year. You can do it; you just have to have a plan!
Your family should be all the motivation you need to make money. Your future and your next level are just as important! However, all of this starts within your mind! It’s all about how much you feel that you’re worth, how much you feel that you can go out into the world and get! The world needs help, and once they see what you can do, they will help you in return! If you have the motivation, that’s great! Invest in the knowledge needed to generate that revenue!
