A lot of people don’t really know what motivates them. I found out a long time ago when I get angry all hell will break loose. I usually am pretty calm, cool and collected on a daily basis but nothing gets me moving more than when a situation frustrates me. My frustration usually turns into anger and next thing you know I picked up and became exactly what I hired you to do. Now in my younger days it would turn into a fist fight but nowadays it just lets me know I need to get the hell out of a situation TODAY!
Part of business is dealing with people who think you aren’t paying attention. Most of the time I am paying people because I don’t feel like doing it myself but it never means I am relying on them like I won’t do it myself. Nothing and I mean nothing pisses me off more than laziness when it comes to collecting money. If I have to call you over to accept money from me at a restaurant, garage or even at a damn Farmer’s market I always think you must not want the money. If a man is offering you a product for sale and he’s slow in receiving the dough it makes me think whatever I am buying is shit. Another thing that gets me going is when I think people are running game on me. If I feel I have somehow stumbled into a deal between the Hatfields and the McCoys and my name is Freeman, then I know I need to cut everyone the fvck out and handle it myself.
A lot of people will tell you not to use your anger or your vengeance or your goal oriented ways of motivating you to get money. BUT I WON”T. I have accomplished more things than I ever imagined I could primarily fueled off anger. I have never really seen competition as motivating primarily because I think comparing myself to another man is petty. But, to each his/her own when it comes to what gets you going. As we speak I’m about to get a Realtor license because the mentally challenged cats I have working for me are slow in receiving dough. I just can’t have the mentally challenged on my team passively getting me what I need. This happens so much to me that I can tell you about 75% of all I know is because I couldn’t wait for a dumbass to do it for me.
So whatever floats your boat, just keep your boat afloat!
