Working For A Living

I am reading the book - "The Soul of Money: Transforming Your Relationship With Money and Life" and she is talking about the phrase "working for a living". 

Is this a statement that you use? 

How do you "feel" right after making that statement?

Do you get excited about the opportunity to wake up and go to your place of employment or your own business?

Note: Self employed or owning a business doesn't mean you don't have a job. It just means you have employed yourself if you are not having fun. Remember a job is "anytime you are doing something and you would rather be doing something else" - Tom Hopkins

Well what Lynne Twist (author) mentioned was Vicki Robin, in Your Money or Your Life, how she writes about people who, instead of making a living at their work, more accurately "making a dying" or, in some cases, making a killing.

Folks you need to look at your life. If you are doing things you don't want to do, you are actually killing yourself (mentally and physically). You are not being who you were created to be. 

Stop for a moment, breath. Go inside of "You" and then listen. Your path will be given to you. 

Then step out and follow the "Yellow Brick Road" (wisdom) which leads to "all your talents and gifts that are already built in you". 

Stop cheating yourself and the world and cut loose. We will all benefit. 

It ain't right. It ain't wrong. It's my opinion
