The Importance Of Honestly Following Your Desires

Written By Gary Spirer Published April 5th, 2011

You need to have a genuine desire to be in business or have a career

Some people don’t want to be in business or have a career. They hate to go to work. They lack passion and commitment. They are not doing what they love. They negate or deny their true selves and their intuition.

Some people are not honest with themselves. They are in conflict with what money means to them. They are “sensitive” to competition and the war-like insensitive actions of others. Something is wrong with the process. They cannot connect. Their perceptions of our success-driven culture in general may be accurate, but they cannot articulate their feelings to themselves and/or admit them.

We need to achieve clarity rather than confusion

We need a clear vision of where we are and where we want to go. There are numerous images pushing and pulling us to follow their agenda rather than our own.

Polonius to Jactes – “To thine own self be true” The Media and most businesses thrive on change – change means new purchase:
a. Fashion
b. Stock Market – Brokers
c. Golf clubs, golf balls, sneakers, t-shirts, sweatshirts
d. Foods
e. Cars
f. Computers

Much of being prone to images or others seemingly in the know or more beautiful or happier etc. lies in factors such as:
1. Inferiority or Superiority Feelings – Adler
2. Neurotic v. Psychotic tendencies – Peck – Road Less Traveled
3. Addictions
4. Feelings of unworthiness – we do not deserve better guilt
5. Follow your own drummer – Buffett “The Tao of Warren Buffett”

Do not just go into industries because they make more money. Each industry has its drawbacks:
1. Investment Banking
2. Hedge Funds
3. Medicine
4. Law
5. Film
6. TV
7. Internet
8. Multi-level Marketing
9. Real Estate
10. Starting Your Own Business
