You have probably heard this quote before by Confucius…

“Choose a job you love and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

Wouldn’t it be great if you could influence your life in such a way, that you maximized the amount of time that you do what you love to do and get paid for it? Yes it is great – I am living it!

girl looking through dirty windowSome say that life is what happens to us as we live it. And in fact we experience life as it happens and a lot of things that happen are out of our control.

We just have to deal with it and make the best of it, right?

Well, that may be true to an extent, but we’re not entirely out of control. We have an influence on how our life evolves, and it is up to ourselves to use that influence to live the life that fulfills us the most.

Over the years many have said to me….“I don’t know what it is that I love doing.”  (Which saddens me)

Or… “I could never make a living if I only did what I love to do.”

I’ve even been told that … “It must be nice to do what you love.” (sarcastically mind you)  and I’ve heard others say this… “I’d love to live my dream, but I have to keep it real and live in the real world!”

That makes you wonder doesn’t it? If doing what you love to do consistently doesn’t make you happy, how on earth are you going to create happiness and prosperity in your life?

Is it a by-product of life? Is it up to someone else? Are you really a function of the environment?

Or are you just lucky if you’re happy?

Of course not! So what do you want?!
