Ok, the title of this one might have sparked
A few people’s interest and today
I’m going to talk about how to make money.
Lots of it!
I’m not selling you on some get rich quickie
It’s the truth and it’s actually very simple.
You see, I’ve seen a lot of people deal with
All kinds of obstacles in life, but the one that
Gets most people is money.
Yeah we all know it’s a tool to happiness.
But you know what else it is?
A promise to exchange goods/services
At a future date for something right now.
But many people just stop there and think
That to make lots of money, they just have to
Work really hard and serve a lot of people.
Find what people like and do it over and over.
I know I thought that way until I learned
This one thing.
Ok well actually let me back up for a second
Because it is pretty much finding what people
Like and doing it over and over…BUT
And that’s a Nikki Manage/JLo sized but
It’s not what you think.
You see, let’s say for instance say you were
Working on a project and worked really hard.
You put it out into the world and
Nobody likes it, in fact they hate it.
Are you likely to make a profit?
How about if you work on a project
You hate and the world loves.
Are you likely to make money?
Sure, but you might not be happy for long.
So what’s the secret?
Well it’s quite simply one thing.
Know thyself and give of thyself.
What do I mean here?
You see, Broca-cola you have to know yourself
You know, likes and dislikes, what drives you…
No matter which way you slice it, if you’re
Trying to be someone you’re not, then people
Sense that and either you or they will have a
Real problem being happy with what you’re doing.
Honestly, there’s nobody in the world
That EVERYBODY gets along with so
The best thing is to find who you do get
Along with and help them out.
Help them by developing your talents and
Using your passion to create a way for
Someone to benefit from your unique talent(s).
It’s really as simple as
1) Be authentic
2) Develop your passion
3) Find people who are like you
4) Create a way to help them
5) Feel good (fulfilled)
6) Make money as you repeat the process.
Not as difficult as many people make it out to be right?
But sometimes we just have to sit down and actually
Think about what makes us happy and fulfilled
Because it’s likely that someone like you is out there
Looking for the same thing you are.

P.S. I feel like I could do a better job explaining this
But honestly it took me a while to understand it
I mean more than just conceptualize it because
I just kept believing that if I worked hard enough
That making lots of money Or at least enough to
Make me happy would be inevitable.
I could go on, but honestly that’s why I created a group
So that I could help people begin to take that journey
Towards fulfillment and away from money chasing.
