Time is money. At least that’s what most people are taught.
The problem with this paradigm, the most common, is that if you think you are only worth $50/hour, then you are limiting yourself to only the lesser opportunities. You won’t be on the lookout for $5,000/hour opportunities!
Who determines what an hour of your time is worth?
How many $10,000/hour hours did you enjoy this month? This year? Your whole life?
If you want to earn more, you must first realize to yourself that you are worth more.
People tend to believe that being a salaried employee is low-risk and being an entrepreneur is high-risk. The reality is just the opposite. What job security is there when your boss can walk up to you and say, “Thanks for your years of good work: Bye!”
Your income shouldn’t be based on how much time you spend working. It should be based on the value you provide/create.
Imagine working a day with the very real possibility that you could earn an extra $10,000 that day.
Don’t cap your income potential by thinking in terms of an hourly rate.
