In that article, I shared that my main motivation for writing is to earn for my family.
But after reading the motivation challenge article, I thought I could go beyond my motivation for writing. Because if earning money for my family is my main goal, there are lots of opportunities in front of me. Most of them though involve selling. Something that I am not good at.
I am more motivated to write and draw than sell. But of course, I know I still have to 'sell' my skills to earn more.
Anyways, I had more than a fair share of failures and a lack of motivations in the past.
I started my blogs before. I even spent on a couple of domains and hosting… just the cheap ones.
But after posting a few times… poof! My motivation is either gone or diverted. I barely earned $10 in my Adsense.
Same thing with my Fiverr gigs.
After two or three paid gigs for creating caricatures from photos (or photo to vector), I stopped working in Fiverr. At the time, the Internet connection was just too slow and unstable. Or probably, I merely lost my motivation to continue offering my services.
I was invited to join a start-up an online English Tutorial school owned by a friend of mine. I was hired to manage their network infrastructure.
I joined, not because of the salary offer, which was just a little more than the minimum, but because it was an opportunity for me to apply what I know and learn something new.
I did learn a lot of new things in the field of Information Technology.
A few years later, I was absorbed by the mother company owned by my friend's family. A real estate development company.
I joined with a goal in mind… to fix and upgrade their network infrastructure. That I accomplished in three years. Then I was motivated to do something else. Something outside the area of Information Technology.
I joined an insurance company. I joined not because of the possibility of earning high commissions. My motivations were to learn how to market and sell and personal financial management.
I passed the exam to become a licensed Financial Adviser.
I learned the personal finance management part. But the selling part? I could get some clients but could not close any deals.
Somehow, earning commissions is not a good motivation for me.
This is what I have been trying to do for years. As they always say, "find your passion!"
That's what I did! At first, I was confused. There are lots of things that I'd love to do. Design and develop websites, design, implement, and. manage network infrastructure; photography and photo editing; graphics design; teaching; writing and then some more…
Later on, I narrowed them down to three things that I love to do even if I don't get paid for doing them.
