    Had a conversation with a friend and a guy I have uber respect for and in that he said:

    "I am not thinking about the money, just concentrated on getting the job done well"

    It does not get any better than that, Folks... no way, no how.

    He gets it.

    Agreed. It's refreshing to hear people who hold themselves to high personal standards.

    I've been in the spot where I made zero money and had a ton of pressure as well as the gentleman that made that statement... sure it is hard but that should not stop you.

    If you wanted to hear a life of adversity hit me up and I'll give you 100 things that make business hard and 200 things why you should overcome them.

    A lot of the time that attitude is what leads to the money.

    I most certainly do not deserve the friends I have sometimes (all the time actually).

    I don't do this for the money - I do it for the little green arrows in my serp monitoring software.

    If I look out for the little green arrows - the money will look out for itself.

    That is a good way to think. And the beauty of it is that, if you think that way, the money will come anyways, where as if you just think about the money, you will most likely lose it all by the time it is all over with :D

    hmmm....

    i think you need to raise the value you give to the consumer. its not bout how well you get the job done if the job you do isnt effective.

    i have a friend like yours. except the difference is he is poor because the value he gives sucks for the consumer. he does the job exceptionally well but it doesnt matter because the client isnt getting any real value at teh end of the day.

    One of the most important things I've ever learned in life is that our inner world will always become our outer world. It sounds a bit hokey, but what it actually means is that your motivations for succeeding at whatever you are doing—money, love, even a skill—will strongly influence your results for the better or worse.

    Fear, insecurity, and anger can never motivate a person to true success. If your motivations are for happiness in your life, for contentment, you will find that working hard will always be rewarding and fruits will naturally follow your labors.

    If you aren't seeing results in your life, maybe it's time to stop looking at results and start looking at the roots of the issue. Most of the time it's yourself.

    I recently told my cousin: "I dont want money karma will take care of me just achieve your goals and stop bringing up paying me". I believe in karma because i almost always see it guiding me to do the right things and i end up making $ when i deserve it, When i was 14 i donated to the American Heart Association and ended up making my first $800+ on ebay (ended up given most away too family)
    But anyway you gotta have mad respect for those who dont keep their minds focused on the money and keep focused on getting the job done the best way it can be done and make sure your happy,i wish i had family and friends like that...

    Exactly! You can't get anywhere just thinking about the money...you can always start, but if you don't finish you will never know the results.

    I've said 1,000 times that I realize I fail but have gotten up 1001 times.

    One day I'll share some of those times... they are not pretty so be prepared for an ugly post.

    same thing steve jobs said sort of. he never cared about the money never did Mark zuck facebook owner or bill gates. They all did the work because they loved it and worked hard. Too many people lose focus and then only think or care about the money.

    If you follow your heart and make money 2nd to none the rest will fill in and the money will follow. For instance I love helping people and building websites if i see a person has desire and motivation. Met a person who do rap and hiphop shows and write. very humble person from off the street, I did a nice website for him and didnt charge him , put my link at the bottom and went to shows with him. He introduced me to people like this is the person who did my sites bla bla. well i got more business and networked with alot more people just from doing that free website for him. I also got the opportunity to meet people who go connects and now Im sort of in the music game and have a nice portfolio. Might of fact i have to finish some cd covers for him tonight.

    Im just saying find something you love and dont think about the money trust me the rest will fill in and the money will come on its on. its crazy how the law of attraction works.

    Steve jobs worked for free for 3 years with apple just because he loved doing what he was doing.

    my wife had a juvenile probation officer job at a day treatment, they were laying off looking for volunteers. she always loved working with kids anyway she volunteered her time for some time end up meeting a clients dad who worked in human resources for the state who saw her love for the job and got her a job for the county making tons of money and she only works 15 days a month
