3 Reasons Why it Actually IS About the Money

I ain’t saying she’s a gold-digger…

But, sometimes it actually is about the motherf*cking money.

I know you’ve heard people say before, “It’s not about the money.”

I disagree. It IS about the money.

Because wealth is about leaving a legacy. Changing the trajectory for our families and generations to come.

Being able to give like no one else.

That is NOT being greedy. That is expecting and wanting MORE for you, your family, and the people around you that you can impact.

3 reasons why it actually IS about the money

1. Work is hard.

I’ve realized that when I’m “counting calories” I actually need to eat ten times less than I thought. When it comes to work, I actually need to DO ten times more than I thought in order to be successful.

Even if we absolutely love what we do, we have to get paid for our work. That’s why it’s called work and not play. We get paid for work, and we pay for play.

2. Earning wages is feedback.

We want validation and recognition for our work. Money is a tangible form of that. Generally, NOT always, the more we make, the better job we are doing.

Getting paid is our justified reward for a job well done.

3. It’s about creating – not waiting – for your life.

Earning money is about making your own way. Declaring it’s your time. Leaving a legacy. Helping others.

It’s empowering.

Permission to make money

Let’s remind ourselves that being wealthy is okay. And, making LOTS of money is AMAZING when you use it responsibly.

You could make millions of dollars, but have millions in debt. Debt is not freedom.

It’s about taking control of your resources and using to create your lifestyle.

Your passion is enough to qualify you to do and get paid for whatever work you love to do.

When we wish for more money, we are not gold-digging.

We are simply believing that abundance exists and giving ourselves permission to embrace that in our lives.
