As an entrepreneur working consistently day and night out of faith to bring that one change in your life that you always wanted, you need to stay super-charged, and that comes from motivation. Money, being the very purpose of entrepreneurship, thus the fount of motivation for every entrepreneur, completely acceptable. But, there are certain things which we need other than money to pace up ourselves on our chosen path.
One of my role models, Matt Mullenweg has rightly said…
“Money and salary is not a particularly good motivator in the long term”
I believe that there is this one thing which every entrepreneur today should do i.e. ‘keep finding sources of motivation’ other than just income-generation and purchasing materials home.
The following playlist is NOT a curated one that gels with today’s youth – but the one that fits the bill of motivation for today’s entrepreneurs and startup founders in the most lyrical way possible.
