Find Success By Doing What You Love

You just won't find anyone who has achieved massive success by doing something that they hate. To achieve success, you must find something that you absolutely love to do. Something that you cannot not do. And do it well. Do it with passion, with excitement, with enthusiasm, with a healthy obsession.

That is not to say that you must become a workaholic. Because when you find something that you absolutely love to do, it's not work. It's fun. Obsession with making money creates workaholics. Don't focus on making money, because then, you'll be working. Focus instead on creating your dream job, on doing what you love to do the most. The money will come, but it is only one measure of your success. More importantly, you'll grow as a person. You'll grow into the person you were meant to be. You will fulfill your potential and make your unique contribution to the world.

Mark Twain said: "The secret of success is making your vocation your vacation." Successful people are on a permanent vacation. Not because they don't work hard, but because they love what they do.

If your goal is to get to the point where you never have to work again, perhaps you should examine the nature of your work. Hating what you do will probably not get you very far. Find a way to love your work and you'll immediately have true success.

-Ralph Marston
