Which group are you in?

I had to share this idea from "The Attractor Factor," by Dr. Joe Vitale. I have some friends who could use this advice and so I figured I'd copy a couple of paragraphs out of Joe's fantatic book. From page 35 & 36.


Years ago, Scrully Blotnick conducted a study of 1,500 people. They were put into two categories: Category A said they would pursue money first and do what they really wanted to do later. Over 1,245 people went into that group. Category B, made up of 255 people, said they would seek their interests first, and trust that money would follow later.

What happened?

Twenty years later, there were 101 millionaires from the entire group. Only one came from group A. The remaining 100 millionaires all came from group B, the group that said they would pursue their passions first and let money come later. Right there is another clue on how to attract money.

Where is your focus--on money or passion?

I can tell you I've always been in the second group. It took me a very long time to figure what I was passionate about and turn it into a career. But because of that choice, every day is a great day for me. I work at doing things I enjoy and excell at. I'm already retired in that sense.

Life is a total pleasure and almost every day of my life I find something or many things to be passionate about. Life is truly a joy.

If you focus on your passion, you'll feel the same way.

Of course there are other factors involved in your happiness. You have to have good health. You need to understand freedom principles so you live the life you want to live and not what someone else or society wants from you.

Cheers, Roger

Another way to look at this is this: How would you spend your time if you had all the money you ever needed?

Would you still be in the same job or be in the same business if you were financially independent?

Of course, some people would just travel or spend lots of time on vacation.

But if you had to perform a service to humanity of some type, what would you really want to do?
