QUICK! Tell me the first thing that pops into your mind. Why do you want to be financially wealthy?
That top of mind “why” is our current inner driver. This answer will change over the years, especially when you reach different levels of wealth.
My current “why” is my passion for traveling the world ?. I sit down at least once a month and plan out my next trips, and add new places to my vision board. This exercise relights my inner driver. It gets me motivated and refocused.
Your personal “why” is vital to your success. It is what will get you to keep going when you hit roadblocks (which you will), will smack you out of a slump, and reenergize you when you need it the most.
There is no wrong or shameful answer to your “why.” Please don’t judge what comes up. Many women I work with feel guilty if their why seems “self-indulgent” or “luxurious.” I want your why to be self indulgent and luxurious, as your “why” is all about you!
Don’t confuse your why with your company mission or life mission. My ProjectME with Tiffany company mission is to help women become financially wealthy and independent through education, empowerment, and mentorship. So yes this greatly motivates me, but it isn’t my#allaboutme “why.”
Over the years and various income levels my why has shifted from buying a luxury condo, to flying first class, to bi-monthly massages, to buying a 7-Figure house…yours may be to get out of debt, to buy a new car, to get Botox, a breast reduction, to work from home in your robe (like me ?). Whatever answer came up for you, embrace it and own it.
This is a judgement-free zone.
