Money Is Important, But It ISN’T Everything

I LOVE MAKING MONEY & I WANT TO MAKE AS MUCH MONEY AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE BEFORE I DIE. let’s get that fact out of the way first & foremost so that you don’t get the wrong idea about me. With that being said, I understand that money isn’t everything & once you achieve a certain level of wealth it motivation to make more starts to diminish.

A recent article titled “What motivates us at work? More than money” by Jessica Gross, shared a few thoughts about what really motivates us at work aside from money.

“Knowing that our work helps others may increase our unconscious motivation” was listed as number 4 and it reminded me of the reason that I teach vs. manage money. Managing money had a much greater ceiling financially in comparison to being a trading coach. However it’s also unfulfilling on many levels. Helping the wealthy, become wealthier by doing the work for them doesn’t really fill the needs of what I want to achieve before I leave this world.

Coaching on the other hand provides me with the opportunity to teach a skill. A skill that I used to create a life for my family and I. A skill that other traders have used to create financial freedom for themselves. A skill that can be passed down to create generational wealth.

I was reminded of this over the weekend when a trader tagged me in an Instagram post sharing some of his successes.

The feeling that came over me when reading the post was a quick reminder of why I do what I do and why I stay so motivated to wake up and do it each day.

Money is a great motivator, but having purpose is even greater.

Thanks for taking the time to read my words & if you enjoyed it, I’d appreciate it if you’d SHARE & hit that heart button below ❤
