Wanting to make more money is not good enough to succeed!

If you got into this business because you wanted to make more money, you probably won't succeed. I'm not saying wanting more money is not a noble goal. But if your only reason for being here is to make money, at the first sign of trouble or things not happening fast enough, you'll second guess yourself and quit.

There has to be a better reason for you to be here. There needs to be this passion that is so strong you won't give up no matter what. For me that passion is the desire to retire from the nine to five lifestyle I have to do and create a lifestyle where I can travel. I want to be able to travel around the United States seeing parts of this country I've never seen.

I want to travel with my laptop and have a business created that all I have to do is tweak it daily or rinse and repeat a sales funnel that I know will create money for me even when I'm sleeping peacefully in some nice hotel room.

I want to put my bills on auto-pay and travel for 2 months at a time around this great country. I would fly to a certain region of the country and rent a luxury car and explore places I've never seen.

Have you ever been driving to a pre-determined location and seen a sign telling you about some interesting site at a location that would be out of your way? Then have you ever said to yourself, "Too bad I don't have enough time to see that? Oh well, maybe I'll get to it one day".

For me, I want to be able to change course and see that site. I figure for me to retire and travel in two years time, it will take about 10 to 15 thousand dollars a month. So, I do know that the making money portion of this business is important and it is a goal for me. But it's not the reason I got involved in this business.

Passion to fulfill my desire will keep me on course when things are not going 100%.

What is the passion that will keep you going?

We have very similar goals. When I leave the military, I want to never hold a job again. I want to see the world and be in charge of my own life in a way that is just not possible any other way.

Awesome! This blog is EXACTLY like me! :)

Well said. Wanting to make more money only cannot take you far. What drives you should be more

Exactly what I want...nice post !

Awesome post and so true, you need a goal with a purpose.
Thanks

I agree. Without passion, you'll easily give up.

My passion is to fill the needs on engineering services. It is a topic that most people forgotten when true results were achieved.
Often we can't find the passion to deliver because we are often thinking what's in it for me. A lot of successful people they think for others than thinking for themselves or making more money daily but is this helping us to live life victoriously.

To me , truly successful is to help others become successful in their needs in life, for me engineering is the fundamental of all human creation.
