All those morons who ever tell you that you CAN'T make money doing what you love are all wrong. The only truth is that if you become a doctor or lawyer, for example, but hate your job, then you may not do so well. This goes for anything. But if you love your practice, you will be rich. I know an artist who just graduated and won't work for any less than $250 a day (good money). He's only like 23 years old so its not bad.
Its very practical thinking. If you love what you do, you will be great at it. I did what I loved and am doing pretty well now. The twist here is that I love IM but there are many people who just want to work from home so they try IM out and end up not liking it. Every job has a dark side and the for those who love IM, the dark side is worth it. I personally have suffered many ups and downs but since I went through it with a motivation to succeed in mind, I made it. I am also a military vet, so motivation comes natural to me (they teach people to be motivated in the military on a daily basis).
Trust me, if you want to be a plumber, a janitor, a doctor, or a lawyer, you WILL succeed. You HAVE to do what you love most.
The ONLY hard part in this is being honest with yourself. Do you like helping people? Do you like technical work? Do you like playing with toys? Do you like advising others? Do you like painting? Do you like watching TV more than anything else? Do you like exercise? You must run this through you mind. What do you like doing more than anything else? Then, grab that idea and work it to the bone.
Let's just throw an example out there. Say you like drinking fine wine more than anything on earth? How can you make money through drinking fine wine? Well, you go to one of those 6-18 month schools that teach people how to be a wine taster. You then become a wine taster and enroll in a company that makes money through wine. You might join a company who tastes wine and gives reviews. You might join a company that creates wine from scratch and sells it to the market. Or, you might start a company of your own. Whatever it is... You will love, think about, and excel in your work. Every job is good IF you love what your doing.
Here's another example. Some people want to be smarter than everyone so they get a PhD in some subject and become professors. Professors work harder and longer than most any other job for a meager salary. What the successful professors do is use that knowledge to create a book that helps many readers. They make money for every book sale and become rich.
No matter what it is, the secret to success is absolutely loving what you do.
That's it. Everything else will take care of itself. I did what I loved and I am going to college about a subject that I love. I can't wait to graduate and explode but my KEY SECRET is that I am doing what I love.
This is the bottom line and it works for everyone.
