Now that I have been able to live my passion of playing music fulltime for the past two years, the nagging question of “Why doesn’t everyone follow their passion?”, persist in my mind.
Now I know making this too simplistic will come across as nieve and that isn’t my intention. I almost feel like if everyone did what they were put here on this earth to do, we would not only have every position filled but everyone in those positions would be happy and they would be the best at what they do.
At one point, I owned a couple of technology type companies. Yeah, I could sell really well, I was good with people, I was organized but it wasn’t my calling.
So in 2011, I decided to walk away from that life. Didn’t you all notice you were missing a great businessman in the world!!? Of course not, you gained a musician who wanted to share his talent and the gift he was given.
Don’t you think the world is a better place because of it? I do… 🙂
I still think the easiest way to come up with what you were put on this earth to do, is make a list and the entire premise of the list should be based around, “If money wasn’t a deciding factor, I would…” OR better yet, “If I had all the money in the world, what I would like to do with my life is…”
Start making your list TODAY!! Life is too short to live someone else’s life, someone else’s passion, someone else’s dream.
