What if Money Were No Object?

68.214 Aufrufe

Veröffentlicht am

Unfortunately our education systems fail to produce people who know “why” they want to do what they want to do. Often you hear no more than superficial reasons like “I want to get rich”, “I want to travel the world”, …that obviously lack the substance to serve as a truly fulfilling goal in life.

What are you passionate about?

If you wake up 10 days in a row, wondering why you are currently doing what you do, then you haven’t found something that truely motivates you. Or it is time to move on. You see, life is to short, to spend your time doing things you don’t really feel like doing. Life is too short to fulfil other people’s expectations and not your own. Life is to short to never take a shot at your dreams. So lead the way.
