If you’re anything like me, then you were brought up with the belief that making money was bad, but at the same time it was something to strive for.
Do you see the conflict? When you realize that your beliefs aren’t really working for you, you can let them go.
I realize that it may not be that easy, which is why I’m a big believer in taking everything in small steps. There’s no need force things.
Start working on helping others and following your passion to the best of your ability. You may not even know what your passion is, but if you’re taking action, it will come to you sooner or later.
Sometimes it’s helpful to do the things that don’t work in order to find what does work, which brings me to the point of this article, making a living.
Express Your Creativity
I love making money. It’s challenging and it’s fun. If you’re skeptical about whether or not you can make money online, that’s too bad, because I’m living proof that it is possible.
Take a look around, and you’ll discover that there are millions of websites and blogs out there making money every single day.
The sheer creativity involved in delivering value and helping people is amazing. You can practically create whatever you want and sell it to people.
You may fall flat on your face a few times until you figure things out, but that’s part of the game. When you get too serious or try to force things, that’s when you’ll feel the resistance and frustration.
I Give Value, You Give Money
Most people get a bit too serious when it comes to the topic of money. I view it more as a playground, as a game.
I create something that gives you value and in exchange you give me money. It doesn’t even have to be money, it can be anything. In essence, all we are doing is exchanging energy.
Money doesn’t have to control you. It doesn’t have to be this evil thing. It can be used as a tool for getting what you want and living the life you desire.
There are a lot of people that condemn, judge and spread negativity when their life isn’t the way they want it to be.
Who cares about them? I have no problem ignoring people that do not add anything to my life. I’d rather focus on doing what I enjoy.
It’s much more constructive to realize where you are and start improving your situation instead of blaming something external.
Focus on helping people and you will go a very, very long way. When you have something of value to offer (and everyone does, no excuses accepted), the money will follow.
