You may have heard it before. Heck, you may have even said it before, “Do what you love and the money will follow”. I suppose there’s some truth to that, but it’s rare. I think a more accurate sentence would be “Do what you love and happiness will follow.”
But people don’t talk about happiness so much anymore, especially in the world of internet marketing. People seem to be hung up on how much money they’ll make, or how to be a super affiliate or how many sales they need to make that day. But does that make them happy? Does that make YOU happy? I dunno.
I believe that if you do what you love HAPPINESS will follow. And happiness has much more value than money. If I gave you a blank piece of paper and asked you to wrote out the exact amount of money you would like to have in your possession, odds are you would be able to write down that number wouldn’t you?
But what if I asked you to write down the exact amount of happiness you would like? Could you write down that amount too? Odds are your answer would be no. Sure, more money could make you happier, or maybe a vacation, a new home, a new dress, new car, new…fill in the blank. But those things are temporary. They don’t last. And when you are on your dying bed, are you really going to say “I wish I would have made more money”. I highly doubt it.
Look, money is great. And I truly believe that you really cannot fully experience life until you have a bunch of it. But you could make 10 million dollars a year and still not be happy. Trust me. It happens. I’ve seen it. I’ve seen millionaires who were miserable. And I’ve seen people on welfare that had enough happiness inside of them for 10 people. So what gives? What’s the secret? Why are so many millionaires unhappy? I believe the answer is simple.
People are unhappy, no matter what kind of income they are earning, if they are doing something they truly don’t enjoy. You obviously want to make money online if you are reading this right now. But if working by yourself for hours on end and writing pages and pages of content doesn’t sound appealing to you, then making money online might be a struggle for you. But it doesn’t have to be.
I believe you can take YOUR story…and turn it into a product. It could be an audio or a book or a video or simply a blog like this one. No matter what your story is, you could use it to change the lives of others. You can use YOUR life, YOUR experiences and YOUR expertise to help thousands of people locally and globally. But it’s not going to work if your heart isn’t in it.
But if you’re heart IS in it, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment…excitement…and…happiness every day. Do what you love…and the happiness will follow. I guarantee it.
If you’re having a hard time taking that next step, or if you’re nervous about making a career change in your life, you’re not alone. And as crazy as it may sound to you, one little book could be all you need to take that next step. I’d loan you my copy, but I don’t know where to send it to. Just tell the folks below where to send it and you’ll have a copy of The Millionaire Messenger in about a week.
To YOUR success.
P.S. Do what YOU love and happiness will follow.
