It’s quite common for people to THINK that they want more money. But really… money is not what they want. Not really. I mean, when you think about it, what you REALLY want is what money gives you, right?
In the following video and article, the very talented Alicia Lyttle shares what she’s learnt about what the real goal is when people THINK they want money. And she shares the hidden truth about what it takes to be able to truly live the life of your dreams.
A lot of times when I talk to people about why they want an online business, money is not the goal.
So… what is the real goal of wanting an online business?
It’s not money as the main goal. Yes, we want to make more money but why, right? What is the ultimate goal in this, when we’re talking about making money?
Yes… it’s freedom.
I take it a little bit further and digging through it… and that is:
TIME = FREEDOM
Money is not the goal. Time is.
And the reason is because having control of your time gives you more future.
Most people live their lives for the weekend, right? So when you hear the people that are working their nine to five – maybe that’s you – and you’re saying, “Thank God it’s Friday”. It’s because they live for the weekend because now they’ve got time to do what they want to do if they’re not working on the weekend.
Control your time and that equals freedom.
And once you see this, now you can say, “Yes, that’s what I need. I need to control my time. And that way I have the freedom that I want to do WHAT I want WHEN I want”.
Control your time, and that is what gives you freedom.
Now, a really interesting, good read if you haven’t read it yet, is called “The Top Five Regrets Of The Dying”. You can pick it up in Amazon. It’s on the Kindle as well. It’s by Bronnie Ware.
Bronnie was given the job to listen to people as they were in the last stages of their life and listen to their regret. She was just listening. That was her job to listen. And in her book, she talks about working with people who are dying, and she shares their top regrets.
Listen to this. People say, “I wish I had the courage to live a life true to myself. I wish I didn’t work so hard. I wish I had let myself be happier.” And she goes on to share them.
The vast majority of her patients never accomplished at least half of their dreams often because of their choice to keep working instead of following their dreams.
So, my message to you today is to have the courage to follow your dreams.
Have the courage. And I just want you to write that word down – COURAGE – because it’s such an important word.
After going through some of her work and reading and listening to some of her trainings, I realized that having the courage to actually live your dreams is so important today, tomorrow… and this is what will determine who can live that life where they control their time and they have freedom.
You have a calling and it’s in your heart. I know that you have so much that you can give to this world that it’s going to be a shame if you do not have the courage to get out there and put yourself out there to be able to live that life you want if you want to live a life at the end that does not have regret.
Let me just repeat this one more time…
If you want to live a life that at the end does not have regret, find the courage to start living your dreams.
This is big. And if there’s one thing that you take away from this presentation today, I want you to say, “I want to live a life that at the end doesn’t have regret and that is going to be me finding the courage to start living my dreams”.
