Do You Have A Why?

Last Update: April 01, 2014

Why do you want to create financial independence? According to the information I have researched on the availability of wealth for the average person all the experts seem to agree on one thing, every human being has an inherent right to live the life of their choosing and if they so desire can become wealthy and In the new economy of internet marketing we have the potential to create this reality more than ever.

It is obvious there has never been a better time in the history of our existence where we have had so much personal freedom and opportunity to live life more on our own terms. the thing people value most is the time to seek and live life with intention and abundance. Time freedom. Could that be a why for you? Perhaps your why is helping a child pay for a college education. No matter what motivates you I believe it boils down to this. We all want a more meaningful life and we believe we will find the information that will help us achieve this. Why wouldn't we?

There has never been a more opportune time for us to realize the freedom that money can deliver if we are willing to do the work. Money in itself though is merely a tool in the whole process of achieving as much autonomy that we want in our life.

And of course we all know it is the leverage of the internet that has made this possible. And what leverage it is. Think about that for a second, let it sink in. The community we are engaged in here is a perfect example of what I refer to as leverage. People helping people help themselves.

A few rhetorical questions for you to ponder, only you can provide the answers. Why are you here at Wealthy Affiliate? Do you have a big enough why to carry you through the tough times? Because they will surely come. Do you reflect on your why often? What is it that motivates you? What is your big picture? Taking the time to answer these questions for yourself will give you several clues that will come in handy when you go about setting goals and choosing a niche. It may even get you in touch with your passion.

We can't escape money, every where we turn someone wants some, there isn't much you can think of that doesn't require some out lay of it on any given day. Most people never seem to have enough of it.

I look at money now strictly as a tool that will assist me in achieving my why.

What is your why?.

Sincerely Mike

Hello Michael. Been 'dug in' for a couple of days around kid stuff and researching my first review. But you know what's really awesome? That you were able to get back with me and share a word of encouragement. I try to be strong but have to say that getting tired wears those nerves pretty thin.

We should keep one another in mind for that 'helping hand' as we learn and grow with the instruction and building our website presence. By all means I hope I can be a part of your cheering section as you move ahead too!

Many avenues to get to this thought but I like this one...the why behind 'why' we do things the way we do them.

My why? HMMM a lot like yours. Seems to be a common thread here. "-) See my smiling. Its not so much about the money and being wealthy, at least for me it isn't. Its about being able to be fully present for the ones we love and for the organizations we care about too. Gotta' have the moola-dough-scratch to keep from going under, but how nice it will be to live less from day to day and more in the moment of giving and sharing and being all that we can be.

Thanks for a thoughtful post. Now I'm off to do some creating of my own. "-) Linda

Hi Mike.

We share similar reasons or "why's" :)

Mine is first and foremost to teach my boys the meaning of working to attain things. I do NOT want them getting drawn in any way into the benefits culture that hard working people (like most of us here at WA I suspect) are paying for. Whether in this country (UK) or elsewhere - I'm sure everywhere has the same issues.

I want to teach them that hard work is the only way to get what you want. Pay your taxes - ie. do your bit for the economy, and have some left for yourself. But don't expect to get someone else do it for you.

All the best Mike,

Mark

Hi I joined WA at first to get a website and of course to pursue making money on line but on the way I found a community that I could communicate with and all the knowledge that this WA has at its finger tips. I am over whelmed and I feel the sky is the limit and I want to thank all of the WA community for the invitation of welcome. It means a lot more than money in the end. To Dream the dream. To inspire. The yearning of new knowledge. It is all here. Cheers Carolena
