Why you're too Scared to make a Living from your Passion

make a living from your passion

The System has a strangle hold over our lives in two vital areas - personal and professional. 

Last month, I explored how it constrains you personally; influencing you to be anxious about the future, keeping you distracted through information overload, making you afraid to act for fear of what other people may think or say and encouraging you to spend your life chasing instead of living in the moment.  

Why I paid $100,000 to look like this!

The $100,000 body

Why, you might ask, have I posted this ridiculous picture of myself on my supposedly serious blog?

What's your dream? Maybe it's to write a book or start a blog. Perhaps it's to set up a business. Maybe you want to excel as a coach or become a sports star.

Why it's Bad to have a 'Good Job'.

Sucker for the system flashing cash

'"So how's John doing?'"

"Oh, he's doing well. He's got a 'good job' working in the city.'"

Although fictional, this is an exact replica of many conversations I've had with people over the years. It usually takes place when meeting friends, old friends I haven't seen for a while and parents of friends etc . . . The term 'good job' and the message it conveys might be specific to the UK, but I'm sure every country has its equivalent.
