Work vs Play: Which is the Better Way to Make Big Money?
If you want to make big money, you have to play not to work.
"What do you mean by that?" You ask.
I attended a workshop last weekend and the speaker said if you are serious in making big money, you've got to play, not work.
He further explained that if you work, you can only make small money. That's what most people end up with. Making small money by working.
This point is best illustrated by studying the Chinese character for play. The character has two parts: one consists of the character "King" and the other is "Money".
By combining these two parts, it becomes "King of Money." And in turn, "King of Money" forms the word "Play."
Hence, play is the "King of Money."
That's the interesting part about Chinese characters. The wisdom in the character "Play" is if you want to make big money, you must be able to enjoy the process of wealth creation.
If you don't enjoy the process and you treat the process as another piece of work, you can't make a lot of money.
You must truly enjoy playing the game of wealth creation. By playing, you feel more energetic, full of passion, and young at heart.
Remember, life is meant to be enjoyed and there is no room for unhappy moments. Enjoy the process and achieve your goals of financial success, just like another round of game.
I really thank the speaker for pointing out such a wonderful Chinese character. That actually reminds me the story in the book "The Fish" if you happen to read the book.
