It’s not worth the chance.
Go ahead and believe that. Please, continue to agree to your belief that doing what you love will never bring you the wealth you desire.
Please, go on upholding the premise that creating a career from your passion, and fulfilling your physical, mental and spiritual needs, isn’t a recipe for financial gain.
Now, stop and think about this rationally.
Is it logical to believe that you can make more money doing something you tolerate, rather than do something you are gifted at? Wouldn’t a person have far greater long-term earning potential if they used their talents, and expressed their beliefs about life in their work, rather than say, got some job with a steady paycheck?
Sure, you might make more money right away with the office job, and while it might feel like a safer choice, I can’t think of anything more risky than denying your true needs. When has that ended up well for anyone?
Do you really buy the starving artist bullshit?
Do yourself a favour and stop undercutting your Self and your value by believing in the idea that passion. purpose. creativity. joy. hard work. don’t provide and make you wealthy. What makes you think money is so hard to obtain?
Money is a current, an energy. If your not open to it, it won’t come your way.
Give your wealth and you’ll receive it back.
If you are serious about doing what you love and making money too, believe that you can, and, with patience, do the work so you do. It’s all up to you. But understand that doing the work doesn’t mean just creating, it means connecting too. Half your job is marketing. You aren’t just a [fill in the blank], your a business owner too. Just because you build it doesn’t mean they will come.
You need to identify the whackjobs that find value in what you do. If you don’t, you’ll be right, and you will be starving.
Please let me know how romantic you find it.
