Reasons For Everything
One common recommendation is to know your “why.”
This is kind of a weirdly stated outcome statement.
Like when you join an MLM, they tell you to come up with a “why.”
Or the reason you are doing something.
This is to help motivate you.
If you have a regular job, the job itself, and the income it provides is motivation enough.
Show up on time, do your job good enough, and keep getting paid.
Otherwise you get fired and become homeless.
But if you are rolling solo, MLM or otherwise, it helps to have a reason.
There are two basic motivational strategies.
Away from pain, or towards pleasure.
Many people convince themselves they are moving toward pleasure instead of moving away from pain.
It sounds better to be going after something than running away from something.
Many people claim they want financial independence.
At the same time, nearly all people who win lotteries and actually have financial independence, are miserable a few years later.
This is data that supports the idea that financial independence isn’t really a suitable goal.
Always Be Chasing
It’s much better to have a big, definite dream your ALWAYS chasing.
To keep you motivated no matter what.
To have such a HUGE burning desire that nothing else compares.
To have such a HUGE burning desire that you’d rather day dream about that than watch TV or YouTube or hang out on social media.
Most people don’t have this.
So most people are only motivated away from pain.
And if you are only motivated away from pain, you are essentially being controlled by your environment.
When your environment becomes painful, you run away.
When it’s not painful, you relax and chill.
But if you are motivated by pleasure, and it’s a big, ambition driven pleasure, you are driven to control the environment.
Control The World
You operate on the environment rather than the environment operating on you.
So, what happens if you don’t have much of a burning desire?
Start with a vague idea about the future, a year or so from now.
Think of the basic things humans want.
Food, sex, companionship, skills trade for income, status, fame, a romantic partner that has your back.
Build your burning desire by daydreaming very VAGUELY about how these things will represent themselves in the future.
Describe it in a journal.
Once you have a decent, vague idea about the future, start to daydream and brainstorm about how YOU will make it happen.
These two basic ideas will inspire you.
Spur you to action driven by your ambition.
So that NOTHING can pull you away from your purpose.
