Matthew's Mind

Your wings already exist. All you have to do is fly.

  • When I’m outta school, I’ll land a job making at least $______.

  • By the time I’m 30, I’ll be earning $_____ a year. No question.

  • When I’m 40, things will really be cranking and I’ll be pulling down $____ a year.

  • When I’m 50, I might retire! All those years making $____ will have me set. I can do whatever I want!

  • If I keep working and making $____ every year then, it’ll just mean buying _____, setting up a ____ and doing ____, which sounds crazy!

Nothing wrong with those thoughts. We’ve all had something like that go through our heads at various times in life. No shame in it.

But as I reflect on that, it has me thinking…

Why all the talk about how much money we make? And all the things it’ll lead to? And where is the talk around HOW we make the money we make? Where’s that narrative?

How much we make? Or how we make it?

Balance those and be proud of both.
