In a radio interview on NPR, the founder of 1-800-GetJunk says he was never motivated by money. Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, was motivated by imagination. They both made a ton of money along the way, but that was secondary to why they did what they did.
Yet many gurus try to persuade us to buy their products or services by promising that they'll help you double or triple your income or earn $50,000 in 60 days.
If you think it's all about the money, I encourage you to look deeper and see if that's really true for you.
What motivates you? Consider things that go beyond money.
You may want to take your journal and do a brain dump with answers to questions like: Why do you want the money (beyond taking care of your basic needs)? What are the deeper elements of your life and business that drive your decisions? What's your bigger purpose in life that money can serve?
The information you uncover may give you some useful insights. Then you can bring those more fully into what you do and how you do it. Your words will gain more depth. You'll create a more solid connection with your readers because you're letting them see who you really are.
Try it and see!
