How You Make Your Money is More Important Than How Much Money You Make

#FPF – Week 29

How you make your money is more important than the amount of money you make.

With the New Year upon us, we are entering a time of reflection.  Reflecting on how the past year went and looking at ways to make this coming year the best one yet.  One topic that surfaces a lot when crafting your New Year’s resolutions is “getting a job that pays more…”  Whether you’re the guy (or gal) signing the back of checks, or the one lucky enough to sign the front – it’s important to remember that no matter your current situation: How you make your money is more important than the amount of money you make.

Unfortunately, the amount of people dreading Sunday night/Monday morning is higher than we would all like, but money isn’t the only variable that defines happiness or success.  Case in point, if you choose a job for the money, but can’t stand the people you work with – you’re going to find yourself dreading Sunday evenings again…

A mentor once told me “Find something you love doing, then find a way to get paid to do it… do what you love and you’ll never [“work”] again a day in your life…”  Luck may play a very small part to this equation, but make no mistake – you will likely be devoting a lot more effort up-front to make this change (because after all, you’re not settling for what’s comfortable anymore) and you remember what I’ve said about getting comfortable…  Comfortable is dangerous.

I consider myself one of the fortunate few that gets out of bed every day for the people I work with.  I love what I do, who I do it with and who we do it for.  If you can’t say the same, it may be time for a change of scenery…

Let’s rock 2017 together!

Thank you for reading and have a great weekend!
