Start by asking yourself two questions: What do you want to create in your life? Who are you in action being for yourself, your business, your family, and your community?
Don’t be startled if you are unsure – many people have been. At Matson Money, we can help you to discover what your true purpose in life is and we are a stand that money should not be that true purpose. Matson Money wants to show you and your family just how you can fuel your future, and how a future aligned with your true purpose for life can then give you and your family a true purpose for your money. “Money is the icing on the cake, it’s not the cake,” said Mark Matson, Founder and CEO of Matson Money.
Fueling your future begins with purpose.
Have you ever thought about your true purpose for life? That which is greater than money itself? Purpose can create the why behind an action, the intention behind the words, and the cause that drives the future. For example, Mark and Melissa Matson’s true purpose is love and without it nothing else matters. Purpose can be personal, but it can also create a larger transformation for family, community, and for humanity.
“You must know what your purpose is,” said Matson. “If you want to be a contribution, have an impact, and enjoy life, start with a purpose. Period.”
Purpose is often highly influenced by the opportunity to change something, to make it better, last longer, or expand its reach. It’s a powerful way to help break out of the herd mentality, think outside the box and completely innovate brand new solutions to existing or similar problems. Once discovered, it’s time to be in action.
Step 1. Create the game plan.
“You’ve got to know how to empower and train yourself to powerfully pursue your dreams and live life on purpose,” said Matson.
Begin by standing in your future. What impact has your life made up to this point? What action or actions were necessary to arrive there? Where do you see your future and how are you going to get there? Stand in that future, then create intentions and milestones along the way. When you stand in your future, anything can be possible. Build this winning strategy and get on the court; put your plan in action.
Step 2. The game is won in practice.
World champions will tell you that the game is not won during the game itself but is actually won in practice. It is a critical time for players to evaluate potential outcomes and choose the path that most directly leads to the desired result. As Michael Jordan said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.”
A critical component of practice is coaching. During practice, coaches get on the court with players and are an added layer of support to their team in achieving their goals. Matson Money is a premier coaching company seeking to revolutionize the financial industry through training and education. We understand that to fulfill on your future, you need a stellar team and a dedicated coach supporting you to assist you in winning your game.
Step 3. Don’t be afraid to pivot.
The vision of your future should never change, but the course may. Don’t let an obstacle, detour, or breakdown discourage your mission. Instead, learn from the hindrance and create a breakthrough from the breakdown.
“I’ve reinvented my organization and our business offerings multiple times in the last three decades and expect to do so again,” said Matson. In today’s rapidly evolving environment, innovation is critical to survival. It is not a distraction from your purpose but can be a powerful gateway to standing in your future.
Step 4. Take the W.
When you have discovered your true purpose for life and are in action toward your created future, your true purpose for money can powerfully align with your life’s mission. In other words, 1+1 is actually 2. This is our Matson Money why: before helping to develop your investment strategy and exploring the benefits of empirically tested academic science, we begin with an exploration of you and your family’s true purpose.
At Matson Money, our purpose is to help families discover their true purpose for money and transform the investing experience for families, leaving them with the opportunity for freedom fulfillment, and love.
Step 5. And finally, don’t be afraid to dream big.
When we created our accountability for the future of Matson Money 2030, we stood in a future with the mission of having trained 100 Brand Ambassadors to lead the American Dream Experience, with the goal of having 400,000 families saved from speculating and gambling with their money and managing $100 billion in assets under management.
In 2021 we deployed the American Dream Experience Tour, which brought the American Dream Experience – with the help of Matson Money Brand Ambassadors – to communities across the United States. And while this was still in full effect, we reimagined the American Dream Experience and launched Breakthrough Investing, our global initiative to bring this educational event to families around the globe and help fulfill on our mission to save the investor and save the world. We intend to accomplish this by creating the ideals of the American Dream as a global phenomenon that anyone and everyone can enjoy.
Are you ready to discover your true purpose for money? Are you ready to discover the empirically tested academic investing science available to help you fulfill on your purpose? Join us for the American Dream Experience Gold, a virtual event, July 21-22, and the evening of July 26.
