First Dollar

Note to future self…

Today we made our first dollar. This is the first time that I’ve earned money for something that I’ve made rather than a direct transaction on my time (i.e. a salary). It feels amazing.

The amount is still insignificant but I am convinced that I will look back at this day as one of the most important days ever.

These first few dollars represent a lot to me because it’s been a goal of mine for a long time to make money for myself. Actually I looked back and I started setting annual goals of some kind in 2016. Every year since then (2016, 2017, 2018, and 2019) making my first dollar has been one of my five top goals but I was never able to get it done. I think it was a mental barrier and today I just broke through that barrier. It sounds silly but it’s true. It only took me 3 years, 4 months and 6 days.

I know that breaking this mental barrier will have a domino effect in my life because I know that I can accomplish anything that I set my mind to. I already knew that but this is proof to myself.

Ok that’s it. Enough with the self pep-talk.

Now you need to 1000x that. Good luck kid.

Now back to work…
