Many people take offense when they are told they should do the work they love.
“That’s impossible,” they exclaim. “I have to pay my bills.”
“Those jobs are not hanging on trees.”
“I’ve tried before, but never had success.”
I realize this isn’t easy, but I do know that it’s doable. Motivational guru Brian Tracy says if you’re not doing what you love, you’re just marking time and have no future. There are a lot of people who agree with him. The experts, and millionaires, say this over and over again.
Still, it’s harsh to hear when we try and don’t get the results we expect.
The thing is, there are too many folks who have proven them right. They’ve moved out of their comfort zone and went for their dreams. Hey, you’re talking to one. I could tell you stories of mistakes and let downs along my way. But that’s not what you need.
You need to know that you can. You need to know that it’s doable. It may not happen tomorrow and yes, you will need to put in the work and take some risks. But if you want it bad enough, it will happen.
