    How to Focus/Passion/Purpose/etc.

    What’s the driving you guys? I feel like I need to quit my job and become broke to really push myself and become a millionaire.

    Currently life is too comfortable and I need change.

    The idea of getting better at what I do and making enough $$ to survive catastrophic scenarios. Having control over my own life instead of letting others affect me.

    When you hit up social media and see all the excuses, bitching, and complaining people do despite living in a country at a time with the most opportunity in history, that should drive you too. You've already hit the lottery - now cash in the ticket.

    If you're not motivated now, then you won't be motivated after quitting your job either. I would find a way to get motivated now. But it's not all about motivation. When motivation ends, that's where discipline begins

    It really helps to cut out the "things that don't actually matter".

    Our brains are like computers and if you have too many tabs open at once, it's difficult to focus on the things that you want/need to focus on.

    Start with cutting/limiting social media and the news. Use that extra time wisely.

    Look at life like a bunch of milestones that are based around your age.

    You're 26. Start by self analyzing your past.

    What were you doing at 18? What was your net worth? What inspired you to progress?

    What were you doing at 21? What was your net worth? What inspired you to progress?

    What were you doing at 25? What was your net worth? What inspired you to progress?

    Reflecting on the past can reinvoke some of those progressive thought patterns, that motivational emotion, and remind you of how far you've come from where you've started.

    Now you're 26. What's your net worth? What do you like or dislike about your job / career / education?

    Then look to the future. What do you want your net worth to be by 30? What can you do with your current job/career/education to get to a job that pays more, and is simultaneously more inline with what you envision yourself enjoying doing? What can you do to get there?

    Imagination draws inspiration and builds excitement. Why stop at 30? What do you want your net worth to be by 35? What can you do with the potential job / education you'd want to have by 30, to further excel?

    You've gotta sit there, self reflect, ask these questions, or similar ones, to get enthusiastic about growth. You've gotta be honest with yourself, for both the lows and highs. You've gotta start to get creative and imaginative, drawing out a path, like you've done before, and start going for it, like you've done before, feeling the gratification of the accomplishments every milestone along the way, like you've done before.
