“Phrases like starving artist and golden handcuffs portray the harmful message that getting paid for doing work you love is not the norm, nor is it a realistic goal. What these hackneyed phrases do is thwart ambition and dreams. Here are 5 steps to start making money doing what you love:”

The Seat of Success
Doing what you love!
My suggestion to everyone out there is to stop living life doing what you do not like to do. You will not find success there. Where you will find success and joyful satisfaction is following what you love. Only then will you begin to live life with excited anticipation rather than dread as you face another day.
The work you need to do is figure out what that thing is. What brings you your highest excitement and your greatest joy? What’s keeping you from it? In this article by, Laura Garnett she outlines the 5 Steps you should take if you want to make money doing what you love.

What is keeping you from having a job you love and getting paid for it? Do you lack confidence? Do you feel that you dont deserve to achieve your dreams?

Working through these barriers is an essential part of being able to achieve your dreams.
