Entrepreneurs Can Heal the World
Why does making a good living matter? Sadly, if you are not making a good living doing your work, you are in an unsustainable situation. You might be forced to take a job doing something you don’t like, and that kills a bit of your soul. Perhaps your work is not fully aligned with your purpose and may even negatively impact the planet. Many of us compromise our deeper purpose and values to make a living. We sacrifice what we really want to be doing in order to make money, to support ourselves and our families. We tell ourselves the story that this is how it has to be and we end up with all kinds of compensating behaviors that happen when our dreams are deferred.
If you can discover a way to make a good living doing what you love, then the wind is at your back. First, you are you’re naturally motivated--both to meet your financial and material needs and aligning with your desire to contribute and to be creative. As we align our work with our creativity and purpose, we participate in a new story--making the difference we were born to make.
