Hi guys, I'm 23, coming from Europe and currently making about 6x the national average salary with web design services. Life has been good, business is also good and I think I started getting a bit too comfortable. I don't find that same energy for prospecting, cold calls, meetings and closing deals like I did before, because I know that in the end, I can still live very very comfortable comparing to basically everybody else in my country. I could try to reach 8, 9, 10x the national salary, but somehow I don't care because it's just numbers that I won't use anyway because I live frugally.

Were any of you in that same position? How did you find your inner passion again and what methods / tactics / books / whatever helped you the most to achieve that?

Best regards and have a great weekend!

I can relate to that. I'm going to bed but wanted to post a quick answer before to get the conversation going.

If you don't care about making more money because you don't need it, then don't use it as a motivator.

Find another reason why you want to grow your business.

Maybe you could help your parents financially. Maybe you could hire some people and give them a job. Maybe you could support your favorite non-profit. Or maybe more money from your current business would help you start a bigger, more exciting project.

And if you don't want to grow the business but instead want to improve another aspect of your life, then go for that.

Also, maybe my website would appeal to you as its main theme is to never get too comfortable:

Here are two articles of mine that you may find relevant:

So you're living your dream life?

Congrats.

No more goals left? You could die tonight and be totally cool with it?

Everything in the world is just fine and you wouldn't like to see anything any different?

Nice.

Nice.
In fairness, maybe he has additional goals but they don't require more income that what he currently makes?
