BUX, bucks, coins, green, paper, dough... Whatever you want to call it, we all rely on money. We need it and it drives our material lives. It's our most important tool to satisfy our material needs. One would think that that would be the first thing taught in schools. Because when you know how to earn money, other things fall into place.
"Give a person a buck and they're satisfied for a second. Show a person how to earn a buck and they're satisfied for a lifetime."
So, how does one earn money? By working? Yes. But doing what and for how much?
Everyone would like to have a good fun job earning lots of money. And this is possible for you. But like anything else, you either have to be real lucky (like your uncle paying you big bucks to be yourself) or you must do something valuable. It's that doing something valuable that's the trick. Once you know what it is and how to do it, you're on the way. You just need to get better to earn more. (If you love what you're doing, that could be fun.)
Earning good money doing what you like is a process. It has rules and things to do. Playing and becoming good at this game is the first step in that process. The key concept in the process is being able to create, develop and sell value. Once you do this to the degree of your capabilities, you will be doing the best you can do while earning the most you can. What else can we ask for?
The process? You're making an effort- to get resources- to put together in special ways- to create value- which you sell for money. That's the process. Playing the game to your limits demonstrates how the process works for you and how you do it. (Reading about it, playing it wrong or staring at it in the box doesn't work.) If at first you're not satisfied with your performance, keep playing and learning from others. You will begin to make certain connections and see some things differently. Then, suddenly, you'll see it. And from there, if you wish, you're into the process, finding out who you are, what you want, what your're best at and what resources you need. From there, it's playing the game all over again, but this time for real.
It's really not that hard to earn good money if that is what you want to do. But then again, if you just want to have a fun-challenge without all this process stuff, just play.
