How much money will make you happy? Is there a price that can satisfy you forever? I really doubt that.
“Happiness is not a place you arrive at, but a manner in which you should travel. So going for the money won’t make you happy, you have to get that long before you get the money.”
If you are currently working at something which is lucrative but not very fulfilling, you are hustling backwards. Pursue what makes you happy, even if you have to do it part time until it can replace your full time income.
As someone who has worked in corporate america, I understand how easy it is to get wrapped up in the money. You have kids to feed, desires to acquire, vacations, even nice cars. But at the end of the day things cannot replace happiness.
I am in a place in my own life where I am slowly being lead to my “happy place” for a lack of better words right now. I enjoy motivating others and the more I do the more I leave a path that people told me would be best. I am getting closer to carving out my own unique utopia. A place where I wake up with energy because I know that my day’s work will propel someone else.
