Passionate Money

Recommended Posts

Katherine

What do you want to be when you grow up? Every child hears this question at some point in their life. The answers are varied and sometimes ridiculous. Around high school and college, this question takes on a new variation: what are you passionate about? Somehow the answer is supposed to be close enough to the truth and still align with making money and being able to afford being an adult in a business world. This is an interesting concept to consider. Your passion could align closer to a hobby that won't really ever make money because it is so unique to the individual. Yet, there is a sort of underlying passion no one seems to correlate. We all want to be free. We all want to be able to make our own choices such as where we live, what we do, what we eat, where we go. 

Nowadays it seems to be the case that the pursuit of any passion or job or career, it all is derived from money. Many households rely on two incomes, graduates beg and plead for post college jobs, and older generations push on despite being years past wanting to retire. Is their passion money? Is this how we live now? Pursuing money to pursue a passion we can never reach because we are forever clawing at the money tree to keep ourselves from going under? Perhaps it's time to rethink what we are truly passionate about.

I came across a book that changes the perspective about money quite nicely. The title of that book is Do What You Love And The Money Will Follow by Marsha Sinetar. So yes, we still live in a world where we need money. However, how about we change the way it works by doing something we love instead of doing something we hate and have to do. That perspective changes the feeling of money, doesn't it?  You are no longer a slave to money. You are now the master of it by getting it out of love instead or hate. Then, of course, there's all the underlying feelings about self worth in getting what you want and deserve in that money. Yet that's a whole other topic.  

Another great saying,

"Self worth is the bane of human existence." - Caroline Myss

Best of luck to you my friends!
