Money alone can't be motivator
We have been told from childhood to follow our dreams and not get perturbed by the amount of money we make in the initial stages of our careers. It is true that money alone cannot be a motivator. The amount of money we get for the work we do fluctuates all the time – sometimes, when there is recession, we have to take a pay cut, and when the economy is doing well, we may get a raise.
However, that should not determine the amount of hard work we put into our work. We should be driven by our passion and determination to excel in life – only then will we be able to overcome all challenges and succeed in what we do.
Life is not a bed of roses – there are ups and downs. There are many obstacles along the way and we may have to struggle at times to overcome these obstacles. Successful people are those who look beyond these obstacles and focus on their ultimate goal(s), and they don’t get distracted or carried away by money or other gains.
Bill Gates and Narayana Murthy did not give up when their businesses did not do well – they learnt from their mistakes and worked hard at achieving their goals. Before setting up Microsoft, Bill Gates had established a company called Traf-O-Data to read raw data from roadway traffic counters and then create reports for traffic engineers.
The company was not a roaring success but the experience that Bill Gates got from establishing Traf-O-Data was helpful in setting up Microsoft. If money alone had been the motivator for Bill Gates, we would not have a company called Microsoft today.
Money is important for survival, but it should not dictate our lives. Once money starts controlling us, we lose our purpose in life and life becomes meaningless and shallow. A person’s success is not measured by how much he/she earns but how much he/she contributes to society. Money is an additional benefit that comes with success. Once we keep this mantra at the back of our heads, we will view success and failure in the same light and we won’t get affected by money or the lack of money.
In conclusion, money alone cannot be a motivator – if we take steps in life while keeping money at the forefront of our decisions, we will not go far in life. We ought to remember that one can be successful if he is determined in life. He has to be focused on his goals and overcome all obstacles and challenges that life throws at him. Only then will he reach his full potential. So, don’t give up on your dreams – follow your passion and you will reach your destination.
