A friend sent this excerpt to me recently and it struck a chord, so perhaps it will with you as well.
“A very good career choice would be to gravitate toward those activities and to embrace those desires that harmonize with your core intentions, which are freedom and growth—and joy. Make a “career” of living a happy life rather than trying to find work that will produce enough income that you can do things with your money that will then make you happy. When feeling happy is of paramount importance to you—and what you do “for a living” makes you happy—you have found the best of all combinations.”
- Excerpted from the book “Money and the Law of Attraction: Learning to Attract Health, Wealth and Happiness”
Let me be very clear, I’m not saying quit your job if it doesn’t make you happy and go on some spiritual quest for happiness and hope that money flows to you.
What I am saying is that, I think there is validity in the premise that if we try to align our career choices with our intentions, values, passion and talents, that not only will we be happier, we are likely to be more successful as well.
Have you found this to be true in your life? Care to share?
