The economic climate in today’s world is cause for concern. Gone are the days when working diligently for 40 years pays off with a decent pension at age 65. This massive shift has people feeling overwhelmed at the idea of making ends meet and afraid for their financial future. How can you enjoy your life when there is so much uncertainty and pressure surrounding your financial situation?

The majority of the world has been conditioned to accept the 9-5, 40-hour work week life. This life brings you only one source of revenue, and it’s controlled by the company you work for. When people realize that working for someone else greatly inhibits their financial independence, they begin to look at other ways to make money.

Make no mistake about it – you need money. A lot of people grow up with negative beliefs about money and this causes them to act in ways that repel it from their life, rather than attract it. They say they want it but they believe that they will change and become evil, or greedy if they get too much of it. So it’s no surprise that once the realization occurs that they need money, people are left scrambling and asking, “How can I make money?” When you don’t know what it takes to make some money on your own, the task can be quite daunting.

So what must you do to make money? The best tip to guide you to a life of financial wealth is this: focus your efforts on serving others. If you look at anyone who is financially wealthy, you will notice that all they have done is fill a need. Whether it’s through a product or service, they have identified a market that where the consumers are screaming for more.

So if you think the secret of how to make lots of money is complicated and requires you to have a high intellect, perish the thought. The majority of people that have learned how to make millions have done so without an expensive education behind them. They have invested in improving themselves, and helping others to get what they want. Steven Speilberg always wanted to be a filmmaker and he helps movie lovers get what they want. Mark Zuckerberg helps the world connect with each other. Oprah Winfrey teaches her fanbase how to better themselves. Do you see the trend here?

A lot of people feel inferior to those that are self-employed, or wealthy – like these people have cracked some mystic code of riches that is only reserved for certain individuals. Nonsense. At the very basic level, these people have just provided something that others want. The bigger the problem you can solve for others, the bigger the return will be.

There is no shortage of what to do to make money. There are an endless number of markets and avenues you can explore. All you have to do is figure out where you can be of service the most and provide genuine value for the consumer.
