Let me start off and say that yes, money is an object! And I do believe money matters and I believe we should all strive to be financially independent. I also believe in balance.
So…what if money was no object? What if it didn’t matter? Get lost in that thought for a moment.
I believe, that what you enjoy doing should be how you make your living. That is where East meets West. Do what you love to do, then teach others how to do it for a fee. Sounds simple, huh?
When money is our focal point, all we do is focus on getting more. When the average person earns more, they spend more. And then, when they earn even more they spend even more! A constant chase.
On the other hand, when a person follows their heart, their passion, like the people who have lived at the highest of ranks – they have earned substantial wealth. Not from chasing money, but from increasing their value by providing a high quality, passion driven service. Steve Job’s goal was not to get rich – that was a byproduct of him fulfilling his dream. His dream was to create a company and a product that would revolutionize how people enjoyed their lives. And in turn he earned so much money, that oddly enough, it was no object…
