What if Money Didn’t Matter?

Recently, a friend shared this video on YouTube. It asks such a simple, beautiful question.

A question we rarely ask ourselves with any seriousness.

What would you do with your life if money were no object?

What would you do for a living if how much money you made and whether your chosen profession was a “real job” or not didn’t matter?

So, what would you do?

  1. Sonia! I know this, I know this, I know this to be true–but I always need to be reminded of it.

    Sometimes I think, if it were just me, I would follow my passion full-time, but it’s so easy to get bogged down with society’s idea of success (as well as my husband’s!). Still, am happy for the reminder.

  2. Boy, is this food for thought… I was taught that questions like this are a waste of time, but, particularly now, maybe these are the exact questions we need to ask.

  3. Why didn’t you play this for me 50 years ago? Oh, right. You hadn’t been born. I’m sending this URL to my grandkids. Thanks.

  4. I feel like the universe is giving me signs lately with this message. I don’t know how to get out of that secure job that drives me crazy and makes me feel ill without having something else to fall back on. Just like the video said, my parents haven’t wired me to think like that. We’re supposed to have a plan, right?

    I think this video is very timely, Sonia. I wish it was just as easy to correct our paths as it is to daydream in the 3 minute video. That’s what I’m working on for now.

  5. I would write, and I would travel, and I would read. And, I would eat.

  6. I was brought up in a family that preached this philosophy, and I can honestly say, my husband and I are both doing what we want and loving it. We’re not filthy rich, but we’re certainly not poor.

  7. Ack. Once again I’ve been slow, slow, slow on replies. Thanks for bearing with me, friends. šŸ˜€

    @Amy: Me too. You’re right, it’s way too easy to get bogged down with society’s idea of success. We have to keep remembering our passion.

    @John: I was too although it was rarely said out loud. But it definitely molded my thinking for a long time.

    @David: LOL. It’s definitely something I’ve wanted to pass on to my kiddos. I’m hope that I’m doing a good job of it. šŸ™‚

    @Jess: So true. But little corrections along the way make a big difference too. Kristen Lamb did a post not too long ago about quitting that job in your mind and how that makes a difference. So awesome. Will have to reblog it.

    @Anthony: Sounds good to me.

    @Lorijo: Wonderful! Money just can’t buy happiness but a weird thing happens when you’re happy with your life…you seem to have enough. It’s kind of annoying actually. LOL
