My passion is around helping women entrepreneurs work less and earn more, doing what they love.
The first step I always talk to them about is what do they desire in their lives? What sort of lifestyle biz would they like to create? What would there “ideal day” look like?
SO I couldn’t wait to share this awesome video, from Alan Watts who is a British-born philosopher who shares some seriously wise words on doing what you love during your life and not settling for anything just because there’s a paycheck attached.
“Remember If you say that getting money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time, you’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing, than a long life spent in a miserable way.
And after all if you do really like what you are doing, it doesn’t matter what it is, you will eventually become a master of it. That’s the only way to become a master of something. Then you will be able to get a good fee for whatever it is. Somebody is interested in everything. Anything you can be interested in, you’ll find others are to.
But it’s absolutely stupid to spend you time doing things you don’t like in order to go on doing things you don’t like and to teach your children to follow in the same track.
See what we are doing is bringing up children and educating them to live the same lives we are living. In order that they may justify themselves and find satisfaction in life by bringing up their children, to bring up their children to do the same thing, it’s all retch and no vomit…… It never gets there …. So it’s important to consider this question – What do I desire?”
This is such a powerful message that I wanted to share with my audience. It’s everything I value in helping women entrepreneurs to create a life they love, doing what they love.
