How would you like to make money without working? Never have to work another day for the rest of your life? Sounds impossible? The truth – it probably is. But that doesn’t mean you have to settle for working like a slave to the grind either.
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. – Confucius
Who was Confucius?
According to Wikipedia it is generally thought that Confucius was born around 551 BC. His interests were in moral philosophy, social philosophy and ethics. He was a Chinese teacher, editor, politician and philosopher. His family was poor and his father, a Lu military officer, died when he was 3 years old. Confucius’ married at the age of 19 and had one child. He abandoned his family to develop his ideologies.
Personally, I believe Confucius left some good principles that we can use in our lives. At the same time, he doesn’t appear to have followed his own advice. Anyone that abandons his family like he did for his own personal growth is a failure in many, many ways in my book. At any rate, thank you Confucius for teaching us how to avoid work in our lives.
How to choose a job your love
1. Write down 10 things that you love to do – Forget about money at this point. Keep it simple.
2. Cross off everything on your list except for 1, 2 and 3.
3. Brain storm a plan to make 1, 2 or 3 a reality.
Now you have your dream. Live it. Prioritize it. Make it your number one goal. Sell whatever you have to for this to become your reality. Do what you love and make money without working.
