So today randomly a close friend of mine sends me a message on GChat that says, “how do you do it?”
I knew exactly what he was talking about because he’s been trying to start an Internet business lately. I’ve spent a few weeks lecturing him and his business partner daily on their lack of focus and bucket of excuses 🙂
Today, he finally spilled his beans…
Ahh…so the issue is MOTIVATION. I won’t lie, I always knew it was. But, “they” needed to admit that for it to really make an impact.
Think about yourself. Just “wanting” something is not enough – do you really the RIGHT motivations to keep you going? Most don’t…
This is the #1 advice I give a LOT of Entrepreneurs with budding dreams. If you make it about the “money” you may as well kiss it all good-bye.
Yes, money is important. But, if it’s your “be all-end all” – good luck!
All the biggest successes in this world are driven by different things, but I’m willing to bet you everything that neither is driven purely by money. If so, then why do BILLIONAIRES keep working? Keep pushing?
It’s always about the CHALLENGE. The WILL. The TEST. Inspiring CHANGE. Mostly…about the excitement of experiencing the PROCESS of building something that others can’t.
That, guys, is an ENTREPRENEUR.
So, he got it, do you?
Basically, the motivation to change your life DOES come from within. I wanted to make this post to make you aware that if you’re doing it just for the money, watch out.
But, the reality is that you’ll have to realize this YOURSELF for it to really “click.”
So, take a minute today. Think about yourself. Why DO you want a business? Why DO you want an online empire?
If you keep thinking about private jets, yachts, toys, big houses and the “rockstar” lifestyle, I really recommend you take a minute to re-evaluate. By the way, there’s nothing wrong with “wanting” those things, I want them. I have plenty of toys and I love cars (hence, I have nice ones).
But…look deeper. WHY? In any Online Empire, the BIG money will take time to come. It’s a process. During that time, what’s going to drive you? What’s going to make you stick it out? Think…think...
…and now leave a comment below and let me know what you’re thinking!
