There is a book that came out in 1998 called Do What You Love to Do and the Money Will Follow. The author was Marcia Scinitar and it made a big splash. It resonated with a lot of people.
Joseph Cambell made a similar statement in his now-famous series of interviews with Bill Moyers, advising everyone to “Follow your bliss.”
I do believe it is in our DNA to do something in our lives that is an expression of our passion for something that is meaningful to us. It’s in us to want to give something of value to the world before we die; to be of service somehow and to make a difference.
However, a lot of people took the above statements too literally and then, after failing to make hardly any money doing what they loved to do, became disillusioned. It was never quite as simple as it seemed, and a lot of people were very naive about it.
Nevertheless, there is kernels of truth in it insofar as when you set out to provide what people really want and value, and you have a passion for sharing it, then it all flows in together and the money does indeed follow. In many cases, lots of it.
I guess I was one of those naive ones. Nevertheless, I am willing to share my life story and tell how I came eventually, after 15 years of struggle after reading Marcia’s book, to create a business out of what was to become my passion.
For me, it didn’t happen until I was in my fifties. I’ll tell you all about it in the webinar I am doing on May 19th at 1 PM EST.
I hope it will inspire you to at least find your passion and purpose, even if you don’t make a business out of it. It doesn’t have to be a business as such. It can just be a sort of a hobby – something you do to feed your soul.
I will also be sharing with you the training programs we offer people who want to make a difference in the world and how you can make $1000 (around £655) as a fee for helping to enroll someone in my live training program that I’m offering this year in England in September, and the US in January of 2016.
I’ll send you another e-mail specifically about that in the next day or two, so keep a lookout for it.
