Jack Canfield on making a living doing what you love to do
Posted Nov 12 2008 8:55pm
A job may or may not be the context for expressing your talents as fully as you could.
Human potential author Jack Canfield (The Success Principles) thinks “What often stops people from expressing their true desire is that they don’t think they can make a living doing what they love to do.
“‘What I love to do is hang out and talk with people,’ you might say. Well, Oprah Winfrey makes a living hanging out talking with people. And my friend Diane Brause, who is an international tour guide, makes a living hanging out talking with people in some of the most exciting and exotic locations in the world.”
“My sister loves to design jewelry and hang out with teenagers. Donald Trump loves to make deals and build buildings. I love to read and share what I have learned with others in books, speeches, and workshops.”
“It’s possible to make a living doing what you love.”
He advises, “Make a list of 20 things you love to do, and then think of ways you can make a living doing some of those things.”
