Do you have to or do you get to?

Must you or do you want to?

Do you need or do you desire?

Are you forced or are you choosing?

It is often said that necessity is the mother of innovation. If this is true, who’s the father?

We are increasingly capable of living beyond necessity. It’s what most people mean when they say they want financial freedom.

But, if you get past necessity how will you innovate, create, discover, learn and grow? How will you continue to show up as the best version of yourself for the benefit of others? Why get up and do your work every day if you don’t have to.

It is said that the purpose of financial freedom is to allow us to do whatever we want. But remember, “what do you want” is the second hardest question in the world. It’s made even harder when you break up with necessity.

It’s time to meet the father of innovation; Intrinsic Motivation. The inner working of wanting; where the doing is its own reward. The motivation that comes from identity where you get to be yourself for the benefit of others. It’s the self…actualized.

It is you, showing up in your highest and best use.

It takes time, it’s hard; but it’s worth it. Necessity will only take you so far in life. The best places on the journey can only be approached through that which is intrinsic.
