Really, you don’t just want to have more money.
Really you just want to have more stuff, do more things, feel less pressure, give more, be able to do more for your family, friends, community.
So many times we just get caught up in the ‘more money, more money’ way of thinking, trapped in it actually, and lose sight of what we really want. Or worse, we never know what we really, truly, in our heart, at our core, want.
Do you know?
Frankly, I ask myself this question a lot, and still there are times when I cannot answer this for my own life, or cannot be specific in naming that desire.
Try this exercise some time, any time: stop and ask yourself if money, time, resources where not in question, what would you do for the day? Lay out your thoughts as clearly, and as specifically as possible.
Sounds simple, and for some it is, but for most people it won’t be easy, and it could take a little longer than you might think, so be sure to leave yourself some time to contemplate it.
After you have finished, then ask yourself the most important question: Why would this be so great?
Write down that answer as well. This is where that idea of ‘self motivation’ kicks itself in the hind-end.
What you want seldom matters. How you’ll get it is also of little importance, but answering that ‘why’ question is the absolute key, the only way to get motivated and stay motivated. If you don’t know why you want it, you will find it very, very difficult to follow through on any plan or idea.
So, don’t spend all of your time writing lists and goals of what you want. Spend the majority of your time focusing on why you want it.
Then you will find your mind will be put to work, even at a subconscious level, on how to get it.
A great way to get in the right mindset is to listen to audios specially designed to help you focus, concentrate, and teach you success methods and thinking. You can grab over 20 hours of those right here:
