Did you ever notice how some people seem to have so much wealth, while most people live a comfortable but modest life? I am not talking about inherited wealth, but wealth acquired by that person. Look closely at their life and you might find this to be true: Most choose to work in a pay-for-performance environment: either in their own business or in a commission-based or bonus-based job. If you’re confident in your ability, this arrangement will motivate you more and it will earn you a lot more money. Of course, a pay-for-performance job means that if you don’t perform, you don’t get paid. Do you take the risk, or do you play it safe?
Something to Think About
If you want to create your greatest life, you’ve GOT to tame the beast of fear. Fear will never completely go away, but it’s the ability to “feel the fear and do it anyway” that separates those who create their dream life and those who simply dream about it.
Is there something you want to do, but fear is holding your back? Take action. Action overcomes emotion and creates momentum. Once you have momentum – there’s nothing to stop you.
