What do you desire? What makes you itch? What sort of a situation would you like?

Letís suppose, I do this often in vocational guidance of students, they come to me and say, well, weíre getting out of college and we have the faintest idea what we want to do. So I always ask the question, what would you like to do if money were no object? How would you really enjoy spending your life?

Well, itís so amazing as a result of our kind of educational system, crowds of students say well, weíd like to be painters, weíd like to be poets, weíd like to be writers, but as everybody knows you canít earn any money that way. Or another person says well, Iíd like to live an out-of-doors life and ride horses. I said you want to teach in a riding school? Letís go through with it. What do you want to do?

When we finally got down to something, which the individual says he really wants to do, I will say to him, you do that and forget the money, because, if you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. Youíll be doing things you donít like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you donít like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way.

And after all, if you do really like what youíre doing, it doesnít matter what it is, you can eventually turn it Ė you could eventually become a master of it. Itís the only way to become a master of something, to be really with it. And then youíll be able to get a good fee for whatever it is. So donít worry too much. Thatís everybody is Ė somebody is interested in everything, anything you can be interested in, you will find others will. But itís absolutely stupid to spend your time doing things you donít like, in order to go on spending things you donít like, doing things you donít like and to teach our children to follow in the same track.

See what we are doing, is weíre bringing up children and educating to live the same sort of lives we are living. In order that they may justify themselves and find satisfaction in life by bringing up their children to bring up their children to do the same thing, so itís all retch, and no vomit it never gets there. And so, therefore, itís so important to consider this question,

What do I desire?

The point is to do what YOU wish to do, not just what we've all come to understand as "earning a living". When one makes ones priority simply "saving money, etc", one gets stuck in the infamous rut we all seem to find ourselves in.

When you do what you wish, what your heart desires, you will eventually create a living from it. It's just a matter of timing , which also requires great patience.

Saving is also a very wise move. "A penny saved, is a penny earned", as they say.

Also, we must learn to do without the objects that will eventually fade. Take a look around your home. Do you see anything that you've not interacted with in some time? Now , consider what it took to get said object. When we do this, compile such useless objects, we are , quite literally, trading life for these objects. It's illogical, if you think about it.
