Choosing is always related to the future. It comes from inside, from your imagination. You create a possibility out of your passion to experience a bigger and better future--usually in terms of having greater freedom with your time, money, relationships, and purpose.
When most entrepreneurs think of getting paid, they think about money--a cheque, a big contract, a client bringing in a lot of new business.
There's a profound little trick you can do, and it will always unhook you from that negativity so you can think creatively. (And chances are your clientele and competitors are feeling just as confused and afraid, so if you can master it, you have a distinct advantage.)
