"The reasons you give someone your money are the same reasons someone else will give you theirs..”

Money Basics - An introduction to the Learn to Earn process
Heres the deal: Money is the result of something. When you focus on the money instead of focusing on creating a means of connecting you to the money then
You want more money. No, you Need more money. I get it. You wouldnt be looking this stuff up if you didnt have a reason. The problem is well, youre going about it all wrong. You see, you dont need to be focusing on the money. Hear me out. If I walk up to you on the street and say, Excuse me, may I have 50 dollars? your response will be some variety of No or if im very lucky it will be Why. If you say Why then its game on. Its my turn. You see when you focus on the money that gets you no closer to the money. People need a reason to give you the money. Its either in the form of an exchange of time, services, products or a combination of each. Money comes to you as a result of something. Not as something that is just needed. You have to offer an exchange. So the quickest way to change your financial condition is to focus on what you have. Do you have time? Do you have Skills? Do you have something you can sell? Can you learn a new skill? Can you find products to sell?
It wasn't until I was able to focus on this approach that I started actually earning an income online. You see when I started I lacked the skills to earn the income. I lacked the reasons for the income. You get so focused and stressed about not having the funds that you lose sight of why you would give someone your money. The reasons you give someone your money is the same reason someone else will give you theirs. They see value in what you are offering and wish to give you money for that value. Focus on creating a reason. A damned good reason. Solve a problem. Offer a service.(pet sitting, lawn mowing, trash hauling etc) Create a services. (online tutorials, cooking tutorials, good at math? offer math lessons) You have to get creative and you have to be vigilant. Short term, fast money is rare. Long term, steady money is real. Drive through a town. Every business you pass is doing exactly what is being explained. They are offering you reasons for you to give them your money. So whats your reason? Why should you be given that dollar? Pity and charity only works on rare occasions. You have to offer VALUE. Value through skills, services, products. Answer enough peoples why with quality and value and you will earn an income in exchange. ******************************************* ******************************************* Whats in it for them. How does your product or service relate to them. Does it make their life better? How does it serve them? Does it entertain them? Does it make them feel good emotionally or physically? Why do they want this. If this made them fit then would they be more popular? If this made them money would they be more free? If this gave them the edge in business or made their room more peaceful or offered healing in some way would they want it?
Relate to them. Relate to the customer. This will help you x. This can offer you X. This will make X easier. This will make X better with the opposite sex. This will make you accomplish X. This will make X better in some way. Find the problem, offer the solution.

The reason you give someone your money is the same reason someone else will give you theirs. They see value in what you are offering and wish to give you money for that value. Focus on creating a reason. A damned good reason. Solve a problem. Offer a service.
If you focus on a dollar or a dollar amount you need vs focusing on a reason that someone would give you that dollar or dollar amount which of those two will get you closer to actually having the money?
