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.
What motivates us at work? More than money
"When we think about how people work, the naïve intuition we have is that people are like rats in a maze," says…
“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 ❤
