You’re about to be seriously disappointed. Here it is: don’t let money-making be your main motivation.
If that’s all you care about, you’ll end up with what the little boy shot at and missed – nothing.
Instead, find a big need, cater to it, and have fun being you as you do. Let that drive you. That’s the real secret of all great fortunes.
Think about it:
Whether it’s LeBron James expressing himself on the basketball court, or Leonardo DiCaprio acting his ass off, or Sara Blakely sellin’ Spanx, or the millionaire you’ve never heard of who does waste management, or anyone whose quotes I’ve shared here on Millyuns…
They all serve big needs, but equally important is that creativity, not money, is what fuels their production day after day.
Same goes for me. Do you really think, every time I sit down to write something, I’m thinking about the next million? Don’t kid yourself. If that was the case, I’d never press publish again.
Why? Cuz each article, on its own, ain’t worth sh*t. Knowing that, I’d be too depressed to put the work in. See, it’s the art of writing that I’m into. That’s why I do it day after day.
The icing on the cake is that this website, as a whole, will be worth millions of dollars in the long run.
And I’m not mad at that. But I’d write regardless.
