Money Is The Reason We Have No Motivation?

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!

Now…What do YOU want to know? Ask me!

Hey guys, I’ve spent the last month talking about the things that I know are important to start building your empire.  Now I want to hear from YOU…

    It’s a Hard Knock Life…For Us…

    …haha this picture was taken yesterday around 3 PM ET in my office. In the middle of work, I decided to take a breather on my couch, well 5 minutes later, that breather turned into me flat-out passing out.

    The picture inspired me to write today about things we tend to forget as we venture out to build our EMPIRES.

    It’s all good and great to have dreams and fantasies of yachts, private jets and Lamborghinis, but along the way I feel most forget about the WORK and SACRIFICES it takes to achieve your dream.

    I know what my dream is – it’s BIG, but I also know what it’ll take me to get to it.

    • I don’t kid myself about the sacrifices I need to make…
    • I don’t kid myself with the work it’ll take…
    • I put in the hours…
    • I HUSTLE!
    • I don’t whine or complain about it…
    • I certainly don’t point fingers at others when things don’t go well…

    I just know one thing and one thing only – HARD WORK.

    The last week I’ve been hustling to finish a LOT of work here in the US office before I take off to spend 6 weeks in the India office. What does that mean?

    • 20+ hour working days
    • Tons of stress
    • HARD decisions…
    • A physical toll on my body

    In the end though – it’s MY decision and I know I’m doing it to ultimately build the empire I dream of…

    Ironic Though…You Work Twice As Hard So
    That One Day You Don’t Have To Work…

    Sometimes we forget to use common sense and think about it. Of course it takes HARD work and sleepless nights to get what you want.

    There’s no such thing as an EASY button (sorry Staples)…

    So, I LOVE this picture of me – it defines me better than you can imagine.

    This was the FIRST time though that I was SO tired that I literally passed out in the office. But, hey, it’s proof – we do what we have to do to make our dreams come true – no excuses.

    So, in Conclusion…It’s a Hard Knock Life…

    The picture reminded me of this song…
