It’s easy to read assume from this book’s title that it involves mastering some kind of magical thinking that if done right, will bring you all you ever wanted. Not so. What it DOES offer is practical reasons and real life examples of why and how one can actually do what they love and make money. I find this advice especially reassuring during times like these when most folks are just happy to have a job, no less one where they get to do what they really enjoy.
Why don’t we do what we really love. Why do most of us choose ‘the bird in the hand’ over the ‘many in the bush’. Sometimes, it has little or nothing to do with money. Maybe it has to do with something internal to ourselves- our fear of failure, or the unknown or rejection. In short, we need to question ourselves as to why we do what we do.
The simple and short answer for most people is money. Whatever it is that we currently do either pays the bills, pays the most, or is what we felt at some point in time was the most, if not the best, we could get. It has nothing to do with our likes, our desires or our talents. Many people fall into a situation one way or another, or are lured into something by hook or by crook. Ask yourself if something like this even remotely applies to you:
