Are you money motivated in your business? This question has been on my mind lately because I believe the answer can make a huge difference in your network marketing business.
I used to be motivated by money. Because of that, I ended up working at a job that I hated. Every day I would drag myself to work, counting the hours until I could go home again.
I justified it for years. The money was great! I was making a nice income and has fantastic benefits. The only person that was not benefiting was me.
I was unhappy for a number of reasons. The work I was doing was not fulfilling. I was another cog in a giant machine that made a lot of people wealthy beyond measure.
Also, the free time that I truly desired in my life was not happening. Working for 9 to 10 hours a day – well, I was pretty tired by the time I got home. Then I got to do it all again the next day. This was definitely not my American Dream.
The raises and other perks did not make me feel any better.
For me, money was clearly the wrong motivation to truly live a life of fulfillment and passion.
Don’t get me wrong. I want to earn a great income but I’ve been more careful about how I do that, making sure that the work I do is congruent with my mission in life.
Passion or Money Motivation – Which Breeds Success?
Leaving my job was the best thing I ever did and taught me many lessons. You may have heard it before….When you do work that you truly love, you’ll never work a day in your life.
It’s so true. As a network marketing professional I found that I can earn a great income, while being motivated by helping others do the same and improve the quality of their lives. That is true fulfillment.
Of great importance in my mission is spending time with my family and having the freedom to do so. That’s a true motivator.
If you are in network marketing, have you asked yourself if you are money motivated or something else?
When you are passionate about what you do, nothing will stop you from success. I’ve met a lot of people in network marketing who started their business with the single goal of making money. They don’t last too long because this professional is about so much more. It’s about people helping people, solving problems, and living a life of time and money freedom.
When money is the motivation, there should be something more behind that.
So, although I make a nice income, I am not longer money motivated. The joy and fulfillment from helping change even one person’s life is priceless.
So what’s your story?
