Time to Re-evaluate the Purpose of Your Business???

Share this:

What is the purpose of your business (career)?

Take a moment and answer this question before you read on.

If you are like most people, your answer will be along the lines of:

* I get to do what I love.
* Create a lifestyle for myself.
* I make people’s lives better.
* I serve people.
* I take away their pain/ meet clients needs.
* Provide valuable services.
* Help others to succeed.
* etc.

Where does “making money” show up on your list? Or, does it even show up on your list?

For a lot of people, it does not even show up on the list. But if we stop to think about this, the purpose of any business is to make money. Otherwise, it is not a business it is a hobby.

What if we revised our purpose to reflect this.

“The purpose of my business is to make money by helping people to get out of their own way!” (Versus, “The purpose of my business is to help people get out of their own way.”)

This gives me a very different foundation upon which to stand and brings a different energy and focus into my business.

The Law of Attraction in a nutshell says that we get whatever we give our energy, attention and focus to. Modifying the purpose statement gives attention to this very important component “money”.

Now, money in and of itself is not a motivating goal. Lifestyle and fulfillment/contribution goals have way more juice. However, money is usually a very important piece of achieving those other goals.

There is A LOT of head trash around money. Very often people think it is bad to focus on money.

This article is not about making a “god” out of money or making money the be-all end-all because it isn’t. This article is about returning money to its rightful place, a very important component of your business (career).

It does not serve you to under-value money any more than it serves you to over-value money.

Modify your purpose. The purpose of my business (career) is to make money doing the things that provide fulfillment, sense of contribution and satisfaction!

Intending great joy and success in all you do,
