One simple but powerful mantra I’ve followed that led to many of my successes is “don’t run after the money, it will always run away from you; do your job well, and money will come running after you.” This advice was given to me by my late father, may he rest in peace. I must confess that I dismissed it at first, not fully understanding its significance. Now, several years later and after its been proven time and again, I actually live by it.
It’s a universal truth. If one concentrates on doing their job well, use their passion, creativity and diligence to make something useful, they’ll ultimately be amply rewarded. Money, after all, is a by-product of success and it’s never the other way around. At least, not in a sustainable fashion.
How has it been for you? Did you receive a poignant advice that you found quite effective and now live by?
