Learn the six most common needs that people try to fulfill with money.
Most (if not all) the richest people on earth give back to charity. If you try to make money with a selfish attitude, you will likely fail. However, if you try to make money with a generous and caring attitude, you will be a lot more likely to succeed.
- Need 1: Certainty/comfort
If this is a need you have, you will notice that you are less likely to take risks.
- Need 2: Uncertainty/variety
If this is a need you have, you will notice that you love surprises.
- Need 3: Significance
If this is a need you have, you will notice that you prioritize feeling important and unique.
- Need 4: Love and connection
If this is a need you have, you will notice that you feel alive when you are in love but are in great pain when you lose it.
- Need 5: Growth
If this is a need you have, you will notice that you feel like dying unless you are growing toward something (e.g., growing your business, improving your interpersonal relationships, etc).
- Need 6: Contribution
If this is a need you have, you will notice that you only feel fulfilled when you are giving and contributing to the welfare and happiness of others.
- Identify which of these needs relate to you.
Once you figure it out, reflect upon whether you have tried to fulfill these needs with money before.
The last need, contribution, is the only need that can be fulfilled with money. Be grateful for the things that have happened in your life, and look for a way to give back. If you seek to make money with this mentality, you will be successful.
