Striving for financial freedom is cool and all..
But these 5 specific reasons were what REALLY motivated me to take action right away.
Find out what they were in today’s video.
Today, I’m excited to tell you the 5 reasons why I decided to CREATE AN ONLINE BUSINESS and WHY you should QUIT your job.
Not everyone knows that the number one trait that you need in order to become successful online and in business is HUNGER.
Hunger is something that you cannot teach..
It makes you smart if you’re stupid.
And hunger will give you the ability and resourcefulness that you need to get to where you want to go.
Here are the 5 reasons that made me HUNGRY.
#1 My Parents
The first reason why I wanted to become successful was because of my parents.
Coming from an immigrant family, my idea of becoming rich was to go to school, get good grades and get a job so that I can one day make six figures.
Because of that, I thought becoming a dentist would be the best path.
And I thought it was going to give me the most amount of fulfillment in life.
So I busted my ass off to make sure that I got into a good dental program that would help accelerate the process.
I thought everything was going to be amazing until I found out that this education was going to cost me around $40,000 to $60,000 a year.
We did not have that type of money to spend.
But my parents did everything they could to make sure I could still go.
I remember my dad picking up every single over-time shift possible at his engineer job.
Also, my mom would work 16 hours a day as a nurse just to make ends meet.
It even got to a point where even though I had parents, it was almost as if they never existed. And even when I visited them, they were never around most of the time.
Because the entire time, they were just working day in and day out..
Trading their TIME for MONEY.
Over time, my parents seemed older than their age and seemed very tired. And it was crazy for me seeing my parents waste their life away for money.
They sacrificed everything just so that I could get an education.
And I knew that I had to take responsibility and do something about it.
#2 My Girlfriend
Now the second reason why I got into an online business was my girlfriend.
Back in the day when I was in college, I fell in love with one of the most beautiful and the most amazing girl that I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
When I saw her for the first time, my tongue and my brain literally stopped working.
One day when we were at the beach in Milwaukee, I had my friend throw a football near her. That was my excuse to slightly “bump” into her.
I ended up tackling her into the water.
When she got up, she was so pissed at me. And that was my first interaction with her.
Fortunately right after that incident, we just started laughing.
Time went on and we had our first date which eventually led to many dates until she actually ended up becoming my long-term girlfriend.
The only problem I had was the feeling that I couldn’t give her everything that I wanted to give her.
We talked about our big dreams of travel and our big goals of what we wanted to do with our lives.
But I was so broke. Our dates consisted of a cheap bottle of wine, a $5 box of pizza from papa johns, and netflix.
That was not the life I wanted to live..
I wanted to live a life where I could take this girl around the world and share the craziest experiences with her.
But I couldn’t do any of that for her.
We ended up splitting up because I was more focused on my financial problems that I couldn’t focus on my relationship.
Money was the reason why we broke up. And because of that I NEVER want money to be the reason why I cannot be with the person whom I want to be with. No matter where she is in the world.
#3 Time Freedom
The third reason is my desire to have time freedom.
I understood this early on when I started seeing my parents slowly getting older.
What we don’t realize is we begin dying the moment we are born. Literally when we have made our first breath, we’re already losing a battle that we cannot win.
So why on earth would I give 8 hours of my life every single day to build someone else’s dreams when I could just build mine?
There are 86,400 seconds in a day..
Why would I waste any of it doing things I hate.
I’d rather spend it sharing experiences with people I care about. Traveling. Seeing new things. And meeting amazing people.
#4 My Health
The fourth reason why I got into an online business is health.
I don’t know if you know this, but did you know that sitting is WORSE than cigarettes?
Ever wondered how people that work too much end up looking?
Bad posture, skinny arms with a fat body, and highly stressed.
You as a human being are not meant to sit for eight hours a day. Even working out for 1 to 2 hours cannot combat the negative effects for sitting for 8.
That’s why for myself, I wanted to make sure that I worked on my body because it’s the only one I get.
I wanted to spend most of my time walking around a random city and exploring instead of sitting in front of a computer.
#5 Seed Money
And the fifth reason why I decided to create money online was because I NEEDED seed money.
I believe that every single person out there and every single one of you guys have a DREAM and an IDEA that can change the world.
But the problem with most people is the moment they begin getting older..
They start believing that they cannot achieve the dreams they once had when they were younger.
And even if they are among the lucky few that actually make it and find a way to live their passion..
They don’t have the money or the INCOME to actually GROW THEIR IDEA.
I wanted to create a business that could fund the ideas that I have.
Everyday I think of 5 to 10 business ideas that I could use in the future.
These are things like softwares, apps, or even supplement companies that I could get into.
And the beauty about making money online, I become my own investor.
