101 Tips to Help You Make Money Doing What You Love

life hacks

This article here comes from Paul Piotrowski at Inspired Money Maker.com. I firmly believe that you truly need to do what you enjoy, as that is where the passion lies. If you are passionate about something and truly enjoy doing that in which you are passionate, then there is no way that you can fail. You will prevail! Without further adieu, here is Paul’s list.

  1. Cut Out TV Time – Instead of watching other people doing what they love (actors, athletes, etc.) while you sit on the couch, why not invest the time into becoming an Inspired Money Maker. The average US home has the TV on for over 3,000 hours per year. A 40 hour/week job is only 2,000 hours per year.
  2. Read “Think and Grow Rich”
  3. Have a Sense of Humor
  4. Be Yourself
  5. Don’t Hide Yourself – Be Accessible
  6. Visualize Your Goals Daily
  7. Have an Opinion
  8. Compliment People
  9. Stop Letting Fancy Sounding Coffee Steal Your Dreams – $5.50 coffee and snacks each day cost you $2,000/year. That could be invested into your Inspired money Maker dreams instead. Use the money to start a business, purchase equipment, take courses, go to a seminars, etc.
  10. Learn to Listen
  11. Be a Simplifier, Not a Complicator
  12. Learn From Your Mistakes, But Don’t Be Afraid to Make Them
  13. Be Humble
  14. Read “The Science of Getting Rich” by Wallace Wattles
  15. Get Excited
  16. Be Original. Be Grateful. Be courageous.
  17. Be Unreasonable
  18. Stop Being Negative – Stop justifying that you’re just being realistic. See things as they really are, not worse than they are. Then, take it a step further and see things better than they are.
  19. Take Action
  20. Be Nice to People
  21. Create Your Own Luck
  22. Stop Pretending to be a Victim
  23. Don’t Worry What Others Think, That’s Their Business
  24. Learn to Master Your Habits
  25. Do Something New
  26. Use Affirmations Daily
  27. Beat the Odds – When you encounter an obstacle, realize that each obstacle you get through with your determination also eliminates 80% of your competition. Keep going, don’t give up and your odds will improve every step of the way.
  28. Just Do It
  29. Believe in Yourself – Nobody else is going to do it for you. Start now, in this moment.
  30. Don’t be Good, Don’t be Great, Be Outstanding
  31. Never Stop Growing
  32. Give to Get
  33. Plant Your Flag, Commit to the Inspired Money Maker Path
  34. Connect With Your Spirit Guides
  35. Don’t Talk Small About Yourself
  36. Avoid Bureaucracy
  37. Focus Your Energy
  38. Read Books
  39. Invest in the Tools You’ll Need – Stop being cheap and invest in the tools you may need to succeed.
  40. Have Integrity
  41. Always Be Creating Your Story
  42. Start an Idea Journal, Capture Everything
  43. Pay Attention to Your Dreams
  44. Assume You Won’t Live Forever, The Time To Do This is NOW
  45. Don’t Gossip, Network – Cut out wasted time gossiping on the phone with your friends. Instead, get your friends into making money doing what they love and then each hour you spend on the phone will be networking towards both of you growing your Inspired Money Maker ventures.
  46. Aim to Improve the Universe. Think Big
  47. Don’t Give Up
  48. Get a Psychic Reading
  49. Make it Fun
  50. Trust Your Gut – When it comes to logic vs intuition. Go with your gut, then justify it with logic later.
  51. Believe in Others
  52. Skip the Party, Work on Your Dreams Instead
  53. Challenge the Status Quo
  54. Learn a Positive Word Every Day
  55. Get Help Where Needed – Don’t try doing everything yourself. If you need web-design, hire a web designer. If you need logo design, hire a logo designer. If you need accounting done, hire an accountant. Try not to do too much yourself. Focus on what you love doing and find a way to monetize it.
  56. Instill Confidence in Others
  57. Email a Stranger, Propose a Win / Win Relationship
  58. Take Time to Relax
  59. Start a Blog and Document Your Journey
  60. Digg, Stumble, Bookmark this Post and Get 9,639 Universal Karma Points :)
  61. Model Successful People – Read biographies, books, Blogs. Study successful people. Find someone who’s already accomplished what you want to accomplish and model their beliefs, their behaviors etc.
  62. Replace Your Bathroom Reader with a Self-Help Book
  63. Take Two Weeks Off Work, Stay Home and Work on Your Inspired Money Maker Plans. Tell Everyone Else You’re Out of the Country.
  64. Repeat Your Affirmations In Your Head Until You Fall Asleep at Night
  65. Choose Financial Abundance, Stop Believing that Money is a Dirty Word
  66. Compete With Yourself, Not Others
  67. Smile and Make People Laugh
  68. Make and Carry Your Personal Business Cards
  69. Be Polite, But Don’t Be Afraid to Express Yourself Either
  70. Don’t Waste Time on Stupid Crap – Does your desk really need to be cleaned again this week? Do your books really need to be alphabetically arranged?
  71. Watch What People Do, Not What they Say They Do
  72. Help Someone Out
  73. Think “How Do I Increase My Income by $10,000” not “How Do I Cut Expenses by $100”
  74. Be Nice to Yourself
  75. Get Rid of Stinkin Thinkin – Stop the endless negative chatter in your mind. Re-focus your internal questions on the positive.
  76. Enjoy the Journey
  77. Network with People You Feel Comfortable With
  78. Don’t Use Your Kids as an Excuse
  79. Learn to Forgive – Stop wasting energy holding grudges. Forgiving someone is not the same as condoning whatever they did. It is simply letting go of the pent up negative energy inside you because it doesn’t serve you anymore. Let it go.
  80. Try Immersion Learning
  81. Find a Mentor / Coach, Don’t Let Lack of Money Be Your Excuse
  82. Give Referrals, Ask for Referrals
  83. Don’t Complain. Put the Violin Away. Nobody Wants to Hear It
  84. Stop Looking for Shortcuts. Steady Wins the Race.
  85. Share Your Success with Others
  86. Don’t Hang Around Negative People. Hang Out With Other Inspired Money Makers
  87. Buy Wrinkle Free Dress Pants – Saves you time on having to iron them
  88. Don’t Believe Your Excuses
  89. Write in a Journal

  94. Hire Someone to Mow the Lawn, Work On Your Dreams Instead
  95. Sleep When You’re Dead – Stop sleeping 8-12 hours a day. Try 6 hours / night for 30 days and see how you feel. Most people sleep so much because they’re depressed about their life. Work on being an Inspired Money Maker and you won’t want to sleep.
  96. Use Law of Attraction
  97. Send Gifts to People
  98. Ask for What You Want – Erase the fantasy from your head that others should know what you want. Ask for what you want, always. Stop talking about what you didn’t get, and focus on what you want.
  99. Work on Your Communications Skills
  100. Have Patience – Everything won’t come all at once. Have the patience to trust that everything will come at it’s perfect time.
  101. Seek Answers Within

    Another idea is to quit worrying about being an “inspired money maker” and think about what really makes you happy in life. Money may be a means to an end, but “inspired money makers” are rarely happy and never satisfied.

    Whoa that is a long list with lots of useful ideas. I think I’m gonna print it out and put it somewhere visible, so whenever I need any ideas or inspiration to improve my life, I can quickly look it up. It’s always good to keep these ideas handy so you can take action immediately and not lose any momentum.

    Great work… :)

    A great list for action. While leadership is often thought of a vague subject, it’s really a lifelong journey of self-improvement in the area of leading teams to achieving your goals. we can all improve our leadership through the study of the principles and some self-awareness and the willingness to apply these ideas in our teams.

    I absolutely LOVE this list.
    One book that I’ve found helpful, and that may help others looking for some self-help that is useful is“Live What You Love”. It’s got practical information; I needed it and I’ve been recommending it. It would highly compliment this list.

    Everyone that I know anticipate to succeed in the enterprise they are engaged and by the time one works through the entire list, it will be evident that success leaves clues. Thank you so very much for this awesome list and I will keep coming back for more.

    I have been a huge fan of James Ray’s material since I first heard him speak a few years ago. He’s the author of The Science of Success, which helped me get my second business started two years ago, but I am even more excited about his newest book, Harmonic Wealth. I’ve attended the Harmonic Wealth Weekend twice now and I am so grateful that James wrote a book about the ideas that he teaches in the weekend.

    Harmonic Wealth is about being wealthy in all areas of your life and not just working to be rich or successful. I’ve done pretty well in business all of my life, but until learning about the idea of Harmonic Wealth, I never paid much attention to my spirituality. I can’t even tell you what a difference meditation has made for my life. I’m healthier, happier, and I just hired five new employees. I swear that I never realized how successful I could be until I starting paying some attention to the other areas of my life. Now I’m making even more money and stressing less. Harmony in ALL AREAS.

    Please read this book: harmonicwealth.com/read

    Just picking up point 1 could radically change millions of lives. How many people do you know who say, “I´d like to do that but I just don´t have the time,” but then they spend hours watching the TV every night?

    Probably most people that you know!

    I was chatting with a salesperson the other day who said that he would like to study more about selling and that he knew it would help him to make more sales but that he was too busy.

    This conversation took place just 5 minutes after he had been discussing the latest episode of some reality show that had been on the night before…

    So an hour there then!

    Most people spend their lives as if they´re trying to “major” in TV… such a waste!

    Very nice list. I especially like seeing Napolean Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich” so close to the top. I give copies of this book away each year as graduation presents to all of the high school graduates I know. It sure made a difference in my life.

    Very informative list. I especially found it useful where you suggested to connect with your spirit guide.

    Another Idea which i love to add in your awesome 101 things to make money is “Be Optimistic and have a feeling of good and positive attitude towards the things around you which makes a lot of difference in you.

    At the last I must appreciate that your post is unique and I find it very useful for the people who like to take it that way. Congratulation on your success and hard work. With Blessing, Money Maker.
