Passion Defines Wealth?

Currently reading: Trump: The Art of the Deal by Donald Trump and Tony Schwartz on page 17.

Right off at the beginning of the book you get the feeling Donald Trump does what he does because he enjoys doing it. Which is great. They always say you should do what you love and it won’t feel like work. Seems like a simple philosophy, but it is much easier for those who enjoy making deals. People who enjoy making things can be engineers. Someone who enjoys coding can be software developer. Someone like Trump who enjoys making deals and watching things be built has a great avenue for working his passion.

But, what about the woman who loves hiking? Or the guy who enjoys nothing but watching movies? Not everyone who’s passion can be paid to be a blogger or reviewer. Most likely the people who don’t enjoy something useful to the business world can’t work their passion.

I, myself, enjoy theme parks, professional wrestling, anything Disney…. These aren’t huge paycheck creators. I would love to drop everything and focus on my passion of theme parks, but short of working for minimum wage and sweeping up garbage it doesn’t seem like a way to sustain the lifestyle I want.

Maybe I need to change my desired lifestyle or change my passion.
