The term “inertia” comes from the Latin word, iners, meaning idle or sluggish. The Principle of Inertia as described by Newton in his First Law of Motion is that an object not subject to any external force moves at a constant velocity. Thus, an object will continue moving at its current velocity until some force causes its speed or direction to change.
Let’s talk dollars and “sense” for a moment. You are currently earning money at a velocity that is commensurate with the amount of value that you are adding to the marketplace. If you want to earn more money, you must add more value. You will not be in a position to add more value to the physical marketplace until you first add additional value to your mental marketplace, the marketplace of your mind. Remember, until some force causes the speed and direction of your earning potential to change, you will consistently create the same income year after year.
So how can we overcome The Principle of Inertia to earn additional income and create financial freedom? The single most important force capable of creating changes in the speed and direction of your financial flow is The Force of Service. Money is energy on paper. The more love, time and energy you put out, the more that comes back your way. This is the Force of Service. Just keep in mind that the love, time and energy you put out needs to serve and nurture others and not just yourself. That way, the Law of Return can serve you as well! Remember, it’s good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it’s also good to check in every once in a while and make sure you haven’t lost the things that money can’t buy! Don’t be attached to earning money. Be attached to serving people!
Live the DREAM…everyday!
