“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”
~ Thornton Wilder
What this quote means in business:
They say follow your passion and the money will follow … but they rarely say why or in what way. I’ve found that one of the keys to success in any business is passion. That means you feel alive in your work because you’ve found treasures there.
Does it mean if your favorite thing to do in the world is eat pies that you should be a pie chef? Possibly. But maybe something better would be to find out what it is about eating pies you like so much and find work that also gives you a similar benefit.
What lights your fire? Why does it light your fire? Keep asking why until you get to a point where “just because” is the only answer possible. That’s your treasure.
More than likely there is more than one way to experience that treasure. To excel in your life and career and business … find every way possible to experience that treasure. At least one of those ways will be a viable way to create a fabulous income for yourself.
