One concept that has been taught, especially in the personal development industry, is the idea “do what you love and the money will follow.”
When I first started with personal development training programs and courses, my role models were people who seemingly were doing what they loved — leading personal development trainings and workshops. However they weren’t the best examples of people making a big difference while earning big money at the same time.
I then started learning from the likes of Anthony Robbins, the world-famous peak performance coach and business strategist, Bob Proctor, founder of LifeSuccess Productions, now known as the Proctor-Gallagher Institute, and Jack Canfield, CEO of the Canfield Training Group and co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® book series.
They were examples of people who were doing what they loved and making a big difference while earning big money at the same time. This had me intrigued especially when I saw many of my colleagues doing what they loved to do but weren’t earning the money they truly wanted to, which ultimately lead to frustration and struggle.
