It takes a lot of courage to make a movie, write a book
or engage in any creative endeavor. From a practical standpoint,
there is often a concern about whether you might be wasting
your time or bypassing an opportunity to make money in a more
stable line of work.
However, there is a study that debunks the myth that
following your passion is a financially foolish decision to make.
In the Attractor Factor, Dr. Joe Vitale cites a study
where a group of 1500 people were given the option of joining
two groups. Group A was a group of people who were going to
pick a career they believed was going to be a practical way
to make a lot of money and then they were going to follow
their passions after they made enough money. 1255 people
joined Group A. Group B was a group of people who were going
to pick a career that they were interested in and passionate
about and just trust that the money would come. Only 245
people joined Group B.
20 years later there were 101 millionaires out of the
1500 people who signed up for the study. 100 of the
millionaires came from group B, the group of people who
followed their passions and just trusted that the money would
come. Only 1 out of the 1255 people who picked a career
because they believed it was a practical way to make a living
actually became a millionaire.
This study shows that you do not need to have a plan or
know how you are going to make money by following your passion.
All you need to do is to follow your passion. Remember the
great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said,
"I have a dream! . . ."
He did not say:
"I have a plan."
First comes the dream and then the dollars will follow.
If there is an idea inside of you for a movie, book, song or
TV show,then go after it and enjoy the ride =).
