Chase your passion, not your pension. Wow! There is so much wisdom in those 6 words. We often worry so much about the weekly paycheck or saving for social security that we do things we hate for years at a time.  Do you know people that go to work every day and hate what they do?  Do you get the feeling when you are talking with someone that is doing their job and you can tell they would rather be somewhere else?

Chase Your Passion not Your Pension ~~ Denis Waitley Click To Tweet

Are you that way?  Why?

Why do you chase the pension or the paycheck? Is that what you really want to be doing?

Are you doing what you do because it’s all you know how to do? Are you doing it because your parents wanted you to follow in their footsteps?

What are your passions? What do you love doing? What do you dream about and think about spending your time doing?

I saw a sign the other day that said, “If you think about something, day in and day out, with every waking moment, AND It Makes You Happy, You Should Be Doing That!”

That is so true. Like Denis Waitley said, “Chase your passion, not you pension.” Quit working at something you hate, just to get paid.

If you have something that you love, that makes you happy when you do it and think about it, You should be doing that.

How can you turn that passion into a paycheck or a pension. Now, very few people get pensions these days, but that correlates today to passive income. Working today to be able to get paid later without working.

What can you do with your passion to make it a paying proposition? What can you do to earn an income and even better a Passive Income from it.

If you chase your passion, you will get fulfillment and satisfaction out of it. You will enjoy going to work each day. You will be happy.

Take Denis Waitley’s advice; “Chase Your Passion, Not Your Pension.”

Set a goal this week to define your passion. What is it?  How can I do more of it and how can I earn an income from it.

Set a goal to start working on the action steps it will take to turn your passion into a paycheck.

What is your passion?  Let me know in the comments section. Let me know what would make you happy, fulfilled, satisfied. Let’s work together to get you on the right track to Get The Goals You Set.
