When you get older

If you knew that no matter what job you chose to do for your life, it would work out– what would you do.
People always bet against themselves when they think they cannot do what they are good at.
You think well I am picking something I can be sure will provide for everyone and be safe when in fact nothing is guaranteed. You can work in a job for 20 years and the company can go out of business.
You could lose your 401k in a downturn in the market and make it worth practically nothing.
If you don’t look at yourself as yourself but just someone else- what would you advise someone who was really good at something. Would you say– be cautious and don’t do it but instead do something that you are not that great at and will only do a so so job , but hey it is safer.
I would rather be with a person who is doing what they do best .
some people don’t know what they do best but if you know you better do that.
But this is the kicker you must exert one million percent into your work every day and work on it the same as if someone was paying you to do that.
that is the missing link with people who want to do something but are sitting around just thinking about it. You have to market it and do all the steps to get your thing out there. You cannot sit back and wait for anyone to do it for you. Artists are basically lazy when they don’t do the hard part of marketing. They cannot rely on Galleries who have 200 other artists to market. In this day and age you have to market non stop as though your life depended on it. Because it does.
You have have have to make marketing your best friend not a dragon looming in the cave ready to kill you.
Writer, Accountant, clothes designers, auto repair people. do what you love and the rest will follow…everyone has heard that, but I say do what you love with all your might and put that pedal to the metal and don’t
‘t stop till you get there and be willing to go through pain and do what ever it takes. Then you will make it.
Even working at Dairy Queen has a period of time when you have to learn to do all the duties right.
Here is the truth.. Life is hard not matter what you do. No path is easy. Every path is hard ,, but that is the thing. That is the life!

  1. 24There is nothing better for a person than that he should eat and drink and find enjoymentb in his toil. This also, I saw, is from the hand of God, 25for apart from himc who can eat or who can have enjoyment? 26For to the one who pleases him God has given wisdom and knowledge and joy, but to the sinner he has given the business of gathering and collecting, only to give to one who pleases God. This also is vanity and a striving after wind.
