Welcome to the latest series on JosephSangl.com – 10 Random Questions To Ask Yourself About Money
These are 10 questions that have personally challenged me in my finances, and I know they can help you too!
Question 2 Do I go to work just for a paycheck, or am I doing what I LOVE to do?
Life is too short to spend just working for a paycheck. If you are just working for a paycheck, don’t quit today, but start taking the necessary actions to change your life in the future.
Here are some things I did to ensure I could pursue my dreams:
- I went to college and got Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (from my beloved Purdue University!)
- After working for a couple of years and realizing that engineering was not what I wanted to do the rest of my life, I went to Clemson University and obtained a Master’s degree in Business Administration
- I sought out opportunities to work in areas of companies that allowed me flexibility to grow my skills – leadership, technical, social, and business skills.
- My bride and I became debt-free (except for the house) and this gave us financial margin to pursue a dream
NONE of these decisions were EASY. NONE of them were free. I paid ENORMOUS amounts of money and time to pursue these dreams. As a result, I am able to do what I love to do.
Here’s the TRUTH: You can do this too!
ACTION: Identify the key steps you need to accomplish to pursue your dreams – WRITE THEM DOWN – and then develop a plan to accomplish them.
Every race starts with one step.
