What Do You Want To Do?

What would you like to do if money was no object? It’s not a silly question, nor is it a falsified “what if” scenario. This question is posed for those wanting to leave behind the old notion of a “job” to do what they want to do. It’s a question for everyone really.

Now, if you’ve listened to the video and got the idea that the theme is “money is bad”, have another listen. In fact, remove money from the equation altogether. This idea is more than that. Allow the idea that you can do what you want to do, into your thinking and your mindset will change. Act upon this idea and you will better yourself.

It’s better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way. – Alan Watts

Think past where you would be or what you would own. Focus on what would make you happiest. Do the things that make you antsy to wake up in the morning so you can do them. Do the things that you haven’t tried yet or are afraid to. Put aside the idea of money being your end point and focus on what fulfills you. If what you want to do is a risk, take the chance. More often than not it is the things we think we can’t do, that we actually can.

    Unfortunately not that easy for most of people. When you work 8 hours (plus the ride to and from work) there is actually not much room for doing things. For which I hate current system. People can of course find a way for that, but just a small group of them.

    Great idea is just an idea without real solution.

    @ZX: There is no real solution that could be written in this post. Because everyone’s solution is as unique as the individual. The point is to find the courage required to make the change.

    @ZX, the solution is in the words. It’s a matter how you open yourself up to new ideas. Those 8 hours of “work” and that time to/from it can ultimately be changed. At first when I was in that situation, I thought the same thing. But instead of admitting defeat I allowed the possibility for change.

    This is a great idea, and it has a great solution. @Jonny is right when saying that solutions are unique. He’s also very right when saying “The point is to find the courage required to make the change”.

    It takes many steps, but to not take that step is foolish if that step is something you want to happen.
