“As you go on in the certain way, opportunities will come to you in increasing number….” ~The Science of Getting Rich, p.50
I have yet to finish reading the chapter in its entirety, but the idea Mr. Wattles spews here is one of my own: You CAN do what you love to do and be WELL PAID for it, too!
But you must take time to create. Don’t hurry or you become competitive. By that, I mean,, if you rush to get a product out, whether it is a book, a program, or a video, then you are placing the item “out there” to suffice the need of gaining immediate fame or income.
If you take time to use the tools and use them with the expertise only you possess, then you will create the book, program, or video filled with substance and worth!
This revelation gave me peace. I can now be rest assured that the time I am taking in the development of a self-study program concerning transition is on track to be worthwhile and valuable.
“The various faculties of your mind are the tools with which you must do the work which is to make you rich. So it will be easier for you to succeed if you get into a business for which you are well equipped with mental tools.” (pg. 49)
I love to write, and my writing has enriched my life and the lives of those experiencing change through job loss or through the death of a loved one. I am blessed and grateful at the same time, having this honor bestowed upon me.
The jobs I previously had were the means to get me to this point. Everything I’m doing feels right. Soon I’ll be launching a local networking chapter of a national organization—and that action feels right. Creating an enriching and rewarding self-study program for those transitioning by choice or not, feels right.
A few situations I’ve gotten myself into by jumping off a cliff have proved to be valuable and helpful in their own right, too.
After losing my own job four years ago, I took the time to contemplate what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Once I determined what I did best and matched that up with I loved to do (and I teach how to do this), getting into the right business was the icing on the cake.
Are you doing what you love to do, in the right business? If not, what steps might you take to put you on that path?
To your success,
“Doing what you want to do is life, and there is no real satisfaction in living if we are compelled to be forever doing something which we do not like to do and can never do what we want to do. And it is certain that you can do what you want to do. The desire to do it is proof that you have within you the power which can do it.” ~W.D. Wattles
