10 Ways How Not Having Enough Money Helps You

  1. Money keeps you stupid because it allows you to do stupid things with no painful consequences.
  2. When you need money, you are forced to look at your customer pricing correctly. You’re less likely to give your services or product away because you’re too scared to charge what it’s worth.
  3. Money stunts the growth of your problem-solving abilities. If you throw money at every problem that arises, you may never understand the problem and how to fix it the right way.
  4. Money can provide a distorted measurement of success and invite you to be less motivated to change things about your business and personal life that cannot be measured in dollars.
  5. When money is scarce, it becomes a critical resource and it’s used more wisely.
  6. Money covers up problems and weaknesses in your business.
  7. Money amplifies bad habits. If you have bad business habits and receive a lot of money, you’ll simply use your money to act out your bad habits.
  8. Learning to inspire others in your organization without money as a reward makes you a better leader.
  9. Having no money to market your product, forces the product to market itself. This forces you to make the best product.
  10. The taste of success tastes even sweeter when you overcome what seems like insurmountable money problems.
