Don’t Work FOR Money

That title may scare some people. The good thing is, the people who it may have scared away shouldn’t be reading this anyway. I watched an old interview with Warren Buffett & Bill Gates and they said something that inspired me to write this. Someone in the audience asked Warren what success meant to him and he simply said: “Happiness… because I do something I love to do every day of the year”. Do you think Warren Buffet works FOR money? Yes, money is involved and his business thrives on making a return on its investments but he’s not working FOR money.


I do something I love every day, and I consider myself “successful”, although I haven’t reached my full potential yet. To be honest with you, money has never been my motivation. It was always about my legacy. The things that I would help build and how I would be remembered when I’m no longer here. That’s my motivation. I think there are so many people that get into jobs or business ventures because of the money and end up dreading every moment. There’s also so many people chasing their dreams and have to get a regular 9-5 to fund it. Understood but you have to do that, find one that you actually like doing.

Regardless of whatever you do, remember that you were put on this earth for a reason. Finding that purpose is easy for some, and hard for others. But if you are blessed to know what your purpose is, use that to find what you’ll do for a living and never work a day in your life. If you haven’t found your purpose, be patient, it may find you.
