Have you ever thought, "If I just win the lottery then I would have it
so good. If I had a million dollars life would be so easy."
What about the phrase: money can’t make you happy.
There was an article in Time magazine back in 2010 that discussed the
findings of a Princeton study that proves that money actually does
make you happier. At least up to $75,000 per year. Yes anything above
this makes you feel like your life is going in the right direction but
not necessarily much happier in the morning. However less than that
amount you were definitely not as happy.
Looking back at my time in banking and then struggling in the first
5-6 years in network marketing I fully agree with this study.
When I was working in a bank making great money I was actually pretty
happy. Stressed yes. Trapped yes. Happy and accomplished yes. Until I
heard about another way. I heard about a business that could create a
leveraged income where you could be location independent. That was
when I realised I wanted that way more than my current life at the
Letting go of that good life but having a bigger dream actually had me
more worried at first. I did feel very stressed as I was not making
enough money. The dream of making it big was there though and that
fire kept me going and made me feel that I had a purpose every day.
Fast forward a few years later to a time when my income was not great
after I had been doing network marketing for five years. I actually
went online to look for jobs that I could do to boost my income. I
just felt completely sick for a few days even thinking about going
back to work. It made me feel like a complete failure but the fire to
succeed was far too big to give up just like that! I am proud that I kept
going and did not go back to work and found a way to make a success of
Just a few years later is when I had felt I had made it and that was
pretty much at that $75,000 magic figure. Of course growing that
income has created more options for our family. Have you ever booked
transatlantic flights for 4 and thought... "oh that’s nothing". Kids are not
free! Also when we get a hotel it’s now two rooms or an AirBnB.
Having two parents who are economists and were always saving I
developed a mindset that I had to save. This mindset I think has
caused me more stress than anything. The moment when the money started
flowing in that stress was suddenly gone. One of my goals was always
to go to a restaurant and not think oh that item is £11.90 and I
should not spend more than £8.90. It feels so good today to go to a
restaurant and be able to choose a healthy dish and even an extra veg,
side or salad with the meal. This might seem like a small goal to some
of you but this has definitely made me a happier person. YASSS I MADE
IT! I CAN FINALLY GET THE CARROTS!
The other important factor in network marketing is the type of income
you make, which will be saved for another blog as this is super
important to understand. Leveraged income, or a passive income is
worth way more than any book ever makes it out to be.
My challenge to any of you reading this is to keep at it in your
network marketing business and make sure you get to that magic $75,000
a year mark. This is about £5000/€5000 a month.
