I am astonished on an almost daily basis at how few people live life with true passion and purpose even though I believe we all come into this world with a very unique gift to be shared with others.
After having our abundant energy, curiosity and creativity beaten out of us at a very young age most of us end up going to work day after day, week after week and year after year solely to pay the bills, buy a bigger, better home, upgrade the car and to take a holiday maybe once a year. Very few of us ever actually stop and ask ourselves the question, why am I doing this. The likely answer is, “to pay the bills”. My response to this would be, ‘is the large house, the car, the cable T.V and the short but expensive holidays, as well as the 241 days out of every year spent at work really providing true fulfillment, happiness and excitement in your life? If your like the majority of people, it’s probably not.
Why don’t we stop on a regular basis and ask ourselves these kinds of questions? Is because we are scared, or don’t know a better way? What if there was a better way and it meant you only needed to work 20 hours a week or less instead of the usual 40+. If you had an extra 3 days a week free, what would you spend your time doing? Imagine this life where you work 3 days or less per week and then spend 4 days following your passions, reading, writing or just time with friends and family.
I know it sounds like a pipe dream but it is reality for millions of people around the world. Why not you? It’s up to you and you only. All it takes is a DECISION, followed by ACTION!
