Dale Carnegie once wrote, "Tell me what gives a person his greatest feeling of importance and I will tell you his entire philosophy of life."What gives you your greatest feeling of importance? What gives you a heightened sense of self-esteem when you do it successfully? What do you most enjoy doing, so much so that you are drawn back to it continuously?
Napoleon Hill once said that one of the great secrets of success is to decide what it is that you most enjoy doing, and then find a way to earn a good living at it. Most people get it backward. They do what they feel they have to do so that they can finally acquire the time and money necessary to do what they really want to do.Your goal should be to reverse this order. You should do what you really enjoy doing from the very beginning. In this way, you will get better and better doing more and more of the things that give you your greatest feeling of importance.
