Motive Not Money

It seems to me that the most successful people in business have achieved their individual greatness because of the motive that they have not the want of money. There was an urge to do what they felt needed to be done rather than the overall desire for profit. Our success comes not from the action its self but rather the motive to solve problems and take action!

Don’t get me wrong and think that I am going off on an altruistic streak here, far from it. And don’t think that I am advocating that earning a lot of money is a bad thing. What I am saying is that more often than not the key to a person’s success is found in their motivation to bring to others something better than what they felt someone else could bring. If you want to open a restaurant and do it with the motive to serve the best food in town and work hard at that motive the result will probably be a very full restaurant night after night after night.

This same example can carry over to any business. My business and yes, your business.

Larson Notes & Satire: Money is only a way of keeping score. So what is your motive? Why are you doing what you are doing every day? If you don't love what you're doing 8 or more hours a day, make a change!
