10 Random Questions To Ask Yourself About Money – Part 2

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:

  1. I went to college and got Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering (from my beloved Purdue University!)
  2. 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
  3. I sought out opportunities to work in areas of companies that allowed me flexibility to grow my skills – leadership, technical, social, and business skills.
  4. 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.
