Arr haar (like "I gotcha" aarr haargh!). Yes but at least you can pay the bills, you say!
Yep, I agree 100%. You got me. Back to the old 'money' thing again. Needing money to survive. You are dead right. BUT......
I was quite successful as a Financial Planner, I won awards everywhere for helping raise money for home loans, business loans, I got promotion after promotion in the BIIG Corporate world. In the end it was worth nothing to me. Yep, my fault, I took risks to try and create fortune. I failed.
But if I was as successful as I was proven in various areas of my professional life, while not enjoying one single second, apart from the commissions and pay dayss, THEN how successful can I be doing something I actually ENJOY doing. And is money the valuation stick to assess success? Nuh, I don't think so. Money is the effect from the cause. I'll back myself in from hereon in. I know the path I am taking is the right path. That CREATIVITY is the tool that I will use to implement any future success. Money will simply be the measure of acceptance by those who will be the recipients of my creativity.
One of the beautiful things about Working Backwards and Living Backwards is that I can tell you what will happen in my future because of the reverie time I spend in La Chateau Tento, doing what I am good at which is anything creative. So the books, songs, poems, films, television scripts which you will eventually see or have access to, I can share with you all before I have actually created them. Make sense? Hmmmmm......
It is well known that many of the great philosophers, theologians, artists, poets and musicians over millenia create their most famous works during periods of reverie or daydreaming. Some of those reverie times last for years, in some instances decades, before the rush of creativity can be accessed. Then when finally the time comes, these great achievers will stay awake for days documenting their revelations. It's just part of the package. But these people are not usually 'normal' people.
But then again what's to say that these creative maestros are the 'normal' ones and everybody else are the 'abnormal' species?
But there is one message in this whole 'creativity' exercise that comes through loud and clear. Every single one of us is creative in some way. We are all artists, or actors, or musicians. We owe it to ourselves to find out more so that we can take advantage of the opportunities that life has offered us.
Don't be caught in the rut. Don't let apathy breed. Find YOU.
