If you haven't figured out WHY you do things.. it's time to sit down and start because if not… your going down the wrong path.
In this video, we will talk about a very important component of your business. It has nothing to do with leads or traffic, in fact, it goes deeper than that. We will talk about your “why” In other words, your motivation for starting a business or creating another stream of income.
Your motivation is the driving force behind whether or not you are willing to get up a few hours earlier or stay up a few hours later to get your work done.
It is the driving force behind whether you stick with your business or you don't.
There are plenty of “whys” out in the world and it will vary from person to person.
A Universe of “Whys”
Did you know that about 70% of people are living paycheck-to-paycheck?
That means they are one lost paycheck, cut hours or major illness away from losing something major – a home, a car, credit card default.
Some work more than one job in order to keep their head above water. Not working paycheck to paycheck is a big motivation for a lot of people. These people are constantly stressed out about money and see it as a finite asset that is dictated by salary, inflation and other factors.
When people entering a business think of money as finite, their main motivation is money. But for the sake of this video, we want to dig a little deeper than money. Of course, everyone wants more money. The question is WHY they want more money.
Is it to have some money for Christmas, birthdays and other special events?
Is it to boost payments so that they can pay off some credit cards or car payments early?
Is it because their kids are growing fast, entering high school and need things like clothes, uniforms, musical instruments and money for field trips?
In my case, I wanted to be happy. In order to do that, I needed money. Money solved everything when your young right? In order to get money, I needed to go to a good university (and this was drilled into every single Chinese kid I knew growing up). In order to get into a good university, I had to get good grades in school so that I could get into the school of my choice.
but things change when you are responsible for others.. vs just yourself.
My why was to make a comfortable life for myself, and my wife.
After our children were born, my why changed dramatically, again. Though I could support a family on an engineer's salary, there was no way I could pay for their higher education, which was projected to skyrocket into six figures PER CHILD. I needed some extra income to help my kids pay for their college. (I believe right now Baylor is about $20,000/semester and would want one of our kids to be a doctor)
Find Your Why
It is very important that you determine your why, beyond simply, “I need money.” Sit down, write down all the things that you and your family needs for your present and future goals. Take some time to discuss them with the people that have the most impact in your life, like your spouse and children (if they are old enough). Once everyone is on the same page, you can have some more support when you decide to start your business.
Most of the time it's not the money… it's what money can release you from or PROVIDE…
