As I was gazing at stars tonight in the pool, I had this thought…
I want to be financially free just like the next person, but this does not mean I should be living my whole life only to make money.
I spend a lot of time thinking about how I will earn my next dollar. I think a lot of people do, and I realized that I do not want to be consumed by the thought of money. Life is so much more than these pieces of paper we use for transactions.
So what is life about? …It’s NOT about making money.
- Life is about making the world better than it was before you came to this Earth.
- Life is about having a positive influence on the lives of others.
- Life is about finding something you truly love doing, then doing it until you become an expert!
- Life is about spending time with people who support & love you; stop spending time with people who only bring you down.
- Life is about the adventure.
- Life is about finding answers to questions but also accepting that some questions won’t be answered.
- Life is about Living.
What is life about for you?
Life is not meant to be wasted constantly thinking about the dollar bill. Or the five, or the ten, or the twenty, fifty, not even the hundred dollar bill. Crazy huh?
I know that money is a necessity when it comes to paying the bills and raising a family, but you can be pursuing what you love as you make money in another way (A Job) until you start getting paid for what you love doing (Your Captivating Career).
Do you truly want to spend your days consumed by the thought of money? Or do you want to free your mind and start truly living the life meant to be lived? The choice is yours…
Get off of the couch and go for a walk. Call a friend or family member. Think about how you can positively impact this world, your community, one person, and then do it! Take time to think of what you love doing, and try to figure out how you can make a job out of it. Appreciate and be thankful for what you have, for one day, this too shall pass.
Think it’s impossible? It’s not. More and more people are doing what they love. This is a new day, a new age, a new generation. Here is one awesome example of a person who quit their job to follow their passion:
