“People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.” - Dalai Lama
Recently, I asked this question to a young gentleman that was in the same hospital room as my brother.
”Greg, what would you really love to do with your life if money wasn’t an issue?”
His eyes lit up instantly. In a spirit of passion and excitement he mentioned that he wanted to become an online game designer.
You see this young man had made some very poor choices and was now in the hospital waiting for the amputation of several fingers and toes due to extreme frostbite.
According to his account, his girlfriend kicked him out of the house without any appropriate clothing or shoes and as a result he spent twelve hours in a frozen garage that he had broken into in an attempt to stay warm. His intoxication and lack of warm clothing caused him incredible pain and injury. He was subsequently arrested by the police and brought to the hospital.
The point here is really not the incident in question but rather the idea of what Greg would really want to do with his life.
What do you want?
Most people will answer this question according to their ability to make money and not their love for their chosen vocation or activity.
Do what you love and the money will chase you?
Sounds great but it is very scary for most people, as they want the ending before they begin their journey.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work this way.
You have to take calculated risks.
You have to believe in yourself and the creative process.
