Some of us may be in it to pay the bills or to get ourselves through college while others may be in it to be recognized or to be adored. But have you ever considered making money online for the sake of other people? No, I am not talking about your family or your girlfriend. I am talking about dedicating yourself to improving the lives of a certain segment of the population.
I think this is one of the things that a lot of people in the online marketing world lack. They lack the care for other people. They create products just to make money. They build a list to make money. They do all of these things with money in mind. Of course, I will not be a hypocrite because I also started that way.
But let me ask you something. What if a day comes and all of your dreams come true? I know that you have been waiting for that. I'll assume you will buy a house, and a car and go on a trip around the world or party the night away with some friends or some girls. And then you feel empty. You are not contented so you spend more. You spend and spend and spend. After all, you are now THE man!
But then what? So what if you have all that money? So what if you have all those 'friends'? So what if you have a big house or an expensive car? So what? That is nothing compared to helping another person go to school or helping a family who only eats once a day. It doesn't matter if these people will thank you. You have done something to improve the life of another person and with that, you have made a mark. For each person you help, the more marks you leave in this world. And one day, when your life comes to an end, you will not only be rich in terms of money but also rich in terms of service because of the people you have helped.
Think about it. Are you making money for the right reasons?
So what do you think?
NOTE: I want to personally thank Mario Brown for making me think about this.
