I was out to dinner last night and met some new friends. One of the couple I met have a son and his interest is music. The father was having a tough time with encouraging his son's passion because he wanted him to make a good living..which to the Dad was making alot of money.
I understood his desire for his son to be able to care for himself and his life needs but what I just can't grasp in today;s society is why we have to encourage this in such a way that it sacrifices one's soul
And so I ask..
Do you remember what it's like to go to bed...really excited about the next day. And when you wake up...you have no problem getting going because you are excited, energetic...ready to GRAB the day!
Do you remember what it's like to go to bed....cover your head....and didn't want to get up in the morning because you dread the coming day? Did you know..most people do this everyday of their life? Working 40 hours a week to spend two days dreading about going back to the 40 hours per week.
Which sleep do you want for you and your loved ones?
I think you can have your sleep and make money too and the answer is simple. Live what's in your heart...your true talent...your true passion. Trust in your instincts and you will enjoy the best of life ...YOUR life!
BTW...it's 4:00am when I am writing this and I feel GREAT! Guess what type of life I am living....MY LIFE!
