Stop chasing money because you will never catch it.
You hear people talking about how quickly their money disappears. It is sooo fast.
Some often find themselves wishing they had more money. I am certainly one of those people.
Sometimes in pursuit of money we go from idea to idea never really seeing any of them through. We don’t see them through because we didn’t really want that thing anyway. We were just chasing the money. When we didn’t “catch it”…which most don’t, we move on to the next thing.
If, on the other hand, you pursue the dream….the vision…you will find that it energizes you..the pursuit of the dream actually helps to sustain you when things get tough. And they (things) will get tough. When you are hot on the trail of your dreams you won’t quit.
It’s not a burden to work my day job and write at night and on my days off….for no pay. (It’s 12:15 am right now, btw)
You know it’s not a burden? Because I am pursuing a vision…a dream. If I weren’t I would have given up on this blog a long time ago. Especially with the amount of time I put into it and how little free time I have in this season of my life.
I know that one day (some day) the financial increase I want will come, but until then…I’m content with what I’m doing.
Chasing money…leads to frustration.
Pursuing a dream leads to inspiration and growth.
Let’s consider that for a moment.
I have experienced growth in pursuit of my dream. Every setback provided an opportunity for me to acquire knowledge or develop/improve on a skill. I’ve also made some progress. Granted I’m not where I’d like to be, but I certainly not where I used to be.
When you chase money leads you from one idea to another every setback is seen as a sign to try something new. You experience the same setbacks, but without the growth or progress.
If the only reason you are pursuing a dream or a vision is for the money you might want to purse something else. Once money because the only incentive or benefit it’s no longer a dream…it’s a nightmare.
