A Well-Chosen Path
Much has been written about finding the right path in life. Many of these books line my own bookshelves.
My favorites are: "Think and Grow Rich," "Looking Out for Number One," "Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude" and "What Color is Your Parachute?" Some of these books are old, their pages are now yellow but their meanings still hold true.
The changing economy over the past few years has forced so many people to have to rethink their original strategies and test new directions.
I feel fortunate that I love what I do and it has worked out well for me.
Although I am intrigued with the beauty of fine architecture, a career in real estate has not been about houses. It has clearly been about people. Helping someone to find the right home is helping them to change their life and often, their lifestyle. And that has been rewarding in many ways.
For those who do have to change paths it is always best to think about what you love. What do you naturally enjoy doing? Make a list, no matter how strange it seems. It will ultimately lead you to explore possibilities that are attractive to you.
We all have our strengths and weaknesses; capacities and limitations; attractions and aversions.
Life is too finite to spend it working at something you do not enjoy. Take classes; talk with people who are doing interesting work. Keep exploring until you are united with the thing that makes you content.
Do what you love - and the money will follow.
