It has to be about more than the money. That goal of yours. It can’t just be about making a few extra dollars.
That’s not good enough. Not big enough. Not powerful enough to sustain you in the bad times to come.
And they will.
You’re going to be tested and tried.
You’re going to be beaten down by failure and humbled by the criticism of your peers.
In your moments of self-doubt, more money isn’t a big enough cause to drive you to do the hard things that being successful demands.
You need a mission.
A cause. A calling.
It’s already inside you.
You know it’s there. You can feel it rise up within you from time to time.
That’s the thing you need to embrace.
That’s your roadmap.
That’s the prism through which you need to view your priorities.
If it doesn’t matter in the long run, it’s not part of your short-term work.
That’s the standard for your actions — the measure for what makes it on your to-do list.
Awesome is your calling card.
Whatever “awesome” means for you.
Not dollars and cents.
In truth, you will always need financial resources to achieve your desired goals.
But that’s not your dream. It can’t be.
Or you’ll stay stuck and broke.
