Get Paid For Your Passion
I remember being asked “how do you do all that you do?” Not exactly sure what the person meant by that statement so I asked for clarification. They responded by saying “you write 3 or 4 books a year, you’re traveling and speaking all the time, you run a successful car dealership and consulting business, you’re on TV and in movies, you promote wrestling and you STILL seem to find time to spend lots of quality time with your family to be the world’s best dad and husband. You pretty much make me look bad and need to stop.” Thankfully the last sentence was said with a smile and a hint of sarcasm or it would have hurt. As far as the rest of the statement, it was humbling and something that I had never been thought about until that moment. It’s easy to get a lot done and to be successful at what you do if the things you do make you happy. Someone else once said to me “I don’t know how you work all the time.” I responded by saying it’s not work when you love doing it. It feels as if you’re getting paid to enjoy your hobby. The key: do whatever it legally takes to find that “something” you have a passion for and find a way to get paid to do it. That’s when you’ll be able to do LOTS of stuff, have fun doing it AND get paid…all at the same time.
