You can’t make money online and be a good, loving, and spiritual person at the same time. If you want to make money online, then you are greedy, and greediness does not lend itself to being kind, compassionate, and loving. That’s a limiting belief that I’ve heard from all kinds of people including family members, friends, and coworkers.
It’s as if people who want to make money online are horrible people. It’s also as if doing things online for free without making a dime makes you some sort of spiritual being that is living a hard and, therefore, right life. I don’t see it this way at all.
I don’t think that you need to be a jerk to be successful online or focused on not making money to be a good person online. In fact, I think that being a good person who wants to make money online is the ultimate combination for success online.
Don’t Feel Bad For Wanting To Make Money Online
I see a lot of bloggers, vloggers, and online businesses get harassed for wanting to make money online, even if they are doing some really amazing things for people. I’ve even seen bloggers and vloggers harass other bloggers and vloggers for wanting to make money!
It doesn’t matter how much they give away or do things for free, people freak out when they try to make some money from what they are doing.
For instance, I’ve seen people talk about Christie Marie Sheldon and her Unlimited Abundance program negatively. She is the nicest person, and her course is awesome, but some people will leave her comments such as ‘If you were really trying to help people, you wouldn’t charge them to take your course!”
That makes no sense to me! This is what she does for a living. She should charge money for something that she created that can also help others.
Could you imagine if all businesses didn’t charge for their products or services? Nobody would make money and it wouldn’t circulate through the world.
Why should she give away her course or services for free and live from a state of lack? How would that help her do things to help more people and change more people’s lives for the better? If she didn’t make money, she couldn’t reach out, travel, and meet clients. If she didn’t make money, she would be stressed and unable to exert as much energy as she does towards helping people.
It’s just nonsense to demand that people don’t make money for the time and energy they put into things.
4 Reasons To Make Money Online Doing What You Love
If you want to succeed in making money online – or anywhere for that matter, then I highly suggest you work from both a spiritual and a business-minded place. In other words, I suggest you do what you love and offer something awesome to people that could help them and make you a ton of money.
There is NOTHING wrong with being someone who is kind and loving and doing what they love while selling something to people that will benefit their life! Nothing!
That’s how this world works. We sell things that can benefit people and we buy things that can help us.
1. Life Has More Purpose
When you are committed to doing what you love and you have a strong intent to make money, you have a much clearer vision of what you are here for – what your purpose is – and how to implement it.
As successful people will tell you, doing what you feel is passionate about is the way to success. It’s the way to stay motivated, determined, and action-orientated.
When you are focused only on making money and do not pay attention to what makes you feel good, you will do things to earn that extra buck that will make you feel bad. You will lie, cheat, steal, and do things that you know are wrong. That will pull you away from your purpose, which ultimately – no matter what it is – includes helping other people in a genuine way.
2. It’s Easier To Do What You Love And Get Paid For It
This is something that I can attest to firsthand. I spent years trying to figure out what to do with my life. I worked at jobs I hated that paid well. I made money online in a variety of ways, but it was always a struggle. I did things that didn’t align with who I was. I did things for the sake of trying to be successful and make money. It wasn’t easy and I struggled with it every day.
But when I realized that creating my own review site based on my life was something I could do and be successful at, it blew my mind. I had the epiphany when I was writing a ‘fake review article‘ for one of my clients. I knew my clients were making good money online from my reviews. I knew that real reviews were something that people looked for on the internet. And I’ve always enjoyed sharing my opinions on things I’ve tried with my friends and family. In fact, I’m happy that I’ve influenced a lot of them in a positive way, and it was exciting to think that I could do that online.
I still get people telling me I’m not being authentic with my reviews, but that’s simply not true. Just because I work online doesn’t mean I’m inauthentic. My reviews are based on my experiences, and that’s just how it is.
It’s much easier for me to do this than it is to do anything else when it comes to making money online. That’s why I highly recommend you figure out what you love and what you’re good at and do THAT to make money online.
3. Life Isn’t As Stressful When You Do What You Love
When you are focused only on making money, life becomes stressful. You stop focusing on things that matter like charity, love, and fun, and your choices and behaviors revolve around whether or not you are going to make money.
Without charity, love, and fun, life is stressful! All work and no play means your mind and your body don’t get any downtime to connect with your inner self and reboot.
Alternatively, if you are only focused on doing what you love, you don’t make money! When you don’t have money, you can’t pay the bills or buy all those things that help you connect even more to your inner self – like a vacation or that new spiritual course that you want to take. You are stressed because, whether you like it or not, this world is made up of physical things and you need money in order to buy them or give them to other people. That’s just the way it is!
When you combine work and doing what you love, life becomes much more awesome! Especially when you work online. You are able to work from anywhere. You are able to enjoy life and re-energize. And you are able to maintain the motivation and determination needed for a successful business.
4. You Won’t Get Shut Down One Day
If you want to make money online doing crappy things, that’s fine. You will probably make money. But, one day, it will be over.
Either people will recognize you for who you are and stop listening to you or buying from you, or your lack of passion will cause you to give up.
That’s why it’s important to do what you love while working online. People will see you as authentic and listen to you and buy from you. And, doing what you love will keep you going day after day, even when things get tough.
You Can Be A Good Person Who Also Wants To Make Money Online
The bottom line is that you can be a good person and want to make money online. You just need to combine what you love with working online and you will find a way to create something that makes you feel good and also makes you money.
Think of it this way: If you are a good person now, then making money online doing what you love will only give you more ways to be a good person. You will be able to help out people, do good things for this world, and do good things for yourself. That’s an amazing reason to want to make money online as a good person.
