Is your life passing you by?

Idk about you but the reason I am in IM is so I can have enough $ while I'm young to do things I really want to do.

Skiing in the alps, cruises through the Caribbean, bottle service is Vegas and NYC, and never have to worry about money again.

But most of all, while I don't have any that I know of yet, I want to make sure my kids are set up to have a great future. I want to make sure they are set up to follow their dreams.

Next time your feeling lazy or unfocused, think of all the REAL reasons to work your ass off.

    Amen brutha, I agree. I look at my kids and two things motivate me. First, to be able to provide for them and give them everything they want/need. The second is to give myself the free time to spend with them so I don't look back tomorrow and think 'God, where did the last 20 years go...'

    I agree. That's the reason why most of us are working hard. it's to provide for our family and ourselves financial freedom. Buy things that we "need" and enjoy the things that we "want".

      True. We only live once so enjoy life to the fullest. The best use of life is to invest it in something which will outlast life.

        I'm convinced that we live more than once, however, that does not make any difference since we can still enjoy life to the fullest.

    I agree too. Life is too short to work and stress for so many years.

      I think we all feel life is passing us by at some stage, but we need to concentrate on what matters. For me money doesn't as such, it's what you do with it that makes the differenve.

    On the other hand make sure you don't let the Persuit of happiness consume your life and miss out on whats happening NOW. Contentment is when your dreams meet your reality, you can work on both ends of the equation and not only try to earn more but also learn to be happy with what you have got.

    Money and freedom sound great but some of the happiest people in the world are those with NOTHING

    Don't let your life pass you by without making the most of it. Remember, money may not always be tight and times might not always be hard. You can take steps now to make the most of your future. If you had started this process a few years ago, you might have different life now. Don't put your life on hold another day.

    This is so true. The primary reason most of us are working hard to make a living online is so that we can provide for those nearest and dearest to us. And not only provide them with material things they need, but also with non-material things that are important, like being able to spend more time with your family. Financial freedom gives you those kinds of priceless benefits.

    Interesting that you put it this way. Having your own business is more money, and more freedom, more passion.... but definately not less work.

    You still work your ass off, just not on anyone elses terms but your own.

    That is true. Your kids come first and I know this myself. If I work, it's to support my family, and that's why I work. Work can be hard, but we choose to do it because our family is the most important thing.
