No money, no honey, no problem - What if money was no object?

Money money money, must be funny in the rich man's world. 

That's one of really famous songs around the globe from Abba. My mum used to listen to their CD's almost every weekend, especially on Sundays. When I was young I used to reply her all over again after the song played: "No money no honey." What a decent lesson for life in early age!

Money is no object

Everything can be purchased.
In this world, almost everything can be purchased. There are even some people who stand by their opinion that you can buy even happiness nowadays. Except values such as love, compassion, enlightenment and freedom everything can be purchased.

But what if money was no object? Can you imagine world where you got no money - and they would disappear out of the planet? Suddenly.

World where money is no object.
Imagine world that we know nowadays - and all of the money that ever existed, would disappear. As well as the money imagine that we wouldn't need an exchange trade, to substitute money for something else. Imagine you would have everything that you can. Imagine it in your life - where money disappeared at all.

What would you do? - "There is no money there is no problem" As one of my friends says. Funny.

Time to change your job.
The reason I am sharing this idea, is to make you really stop for a minute and think. What would you do professionally in your life, if money was no object. Professionally I mean your occupation. Would you do your job or run your business if the money would have never existed?

Would you quit your job, or you will be looking for job somewhere else?

Some of my friends told me they would become an artists, writers, sportsmen, blogger or dancers as well as singers. I am sadly disappointed by this real life and I must say that most of the people (I am part of them)  do sometimes things that they really don't like to do.

Some success quotes say: "Successful people do what others are unwilling to do!" But do you really want to waste your life doing something that you don't really like to do? I don't mean doing something that you have to do, because you don't have any other options. I know in some situations people have to do things or work they hate to do. But if you would have the chance (and you really have) would you change your job to do something you love and you are passionate about? It's only you who decides that you are happy.

Ask yourself what would you do with your life if money was no object or get inspired by great video and presentation by Alan Watts speaking about What if Money Was No Object.
