Your current beliefs about money are bullshit.
You’re idea’s going to hit it big or you’re going to get that raise. Maybe win the lottery. It’s early in your career, and aren’t making a big deal of earning more; seniority will change that later. No, it won’t and thinking like this is NOT okay.
Your 9-5 pays you somewhere around $14.50 per hour… for 8 hours of work. $116 bucks before taxes. That’s about 3,480 a month, which is great. Get your money!!
But that was 8 hours of your time!
A lot of this thinking leads to a life of low self-value, calloused hands, bruised feet; low bank accounts. Especially if you’re raising a FAMILY.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves throughwith many sorrows.
Timothy 6:10 King James Version (KJV)
I’ve been writing these thus far with a specific goal in mind and now I believe you’re ready for the real lesson. It’s time to start considering next season’s cash flow strategies. This includes new ways to make money TODAY.
This year, I want you to consider how valuable you are. How to leverage everything in your pocket. This has to do with your own abilities, network, and drive.
When we talked last I mentioned the importance of changing your mind from “I don’t have enough.” Here’s what we’re going to replace that with.
“How do I get _____.”
More time. More sanity. Not money.
- I want more time
- I want better relationships
- I want utilize my skills doing what I love
- I want to take care of my family/community
- I want to be healthy
- I want to be a larger service provider
Let’s revisist your 9-5. You work for 8 hours, spend the skills you have, and go home. $113 before taxes is fine. However, what if you could make $113 for 4 hours of work or less?
This will free you up to travel more. Spend time with the people you know and love and less time at work.
Life is service based. For you, more time is only going to be indicative of how much value you see in an hour. Look for other ways to make money be of service outside of your 9-5. Ways YOU enjoy. If you’re unsre where to begin utilize the app store. There are various ways to make money by signing up. 😉 😉 😉
Your time is valuable.
P.S. The people you know, their knowledge, skills, capital, and more, can all be accessed beyond your wildest dreams.
