Passion to Profit: Can Serving Others, Doing Good & Making Money Play Nice Together?
So you are passionate about serving others, doing good and making money. That seems pretty natural to me. Who doesn’t want to make money doing what you love?
But as soon as you put those activities together, it’s likely that fear arises that can make you feel completely frozen.
Clearly many of us have issues with our relationship with money.
Is it okay to make money if I’m doing good and serving others in the world?
Is it moral?
Will money corrupt my work doing good and serving others?
Will I be seen as a bad person if I make money doing what I love?
Is it even possible to make a decent amount of money by doing good and truly serving others? Is passion to profit even attainable if I am a spiritually oriented person?
On the other hand…How can I take care of my family if I don’t make as much money as I can?
Will my sense of purpose compromise my success and income?
Will I be seen as a weak person if I bring more goodness and intention of serving others for the highest good into my business?
Don’t good people give all the time, altruistically, without ever thinking about themselves?
These seem like legitimate questions in today’s world, but let’s see what happens if we flip them around.
Is it okay to make money if I’m not doing good in the world even if I am doing what I love?
Is that moral?
Could my work be corrupted by lack of money?
Passion to profit…I’ve heard of this many times before. Is it possible that asking for money (and providing a good service, serving others) will enable me to become a better person?
Is it worth making a decent amount of money if I don’t feel what I’m doing is really good?
How can I make money doing what I love to do and take good care of my family so we enjoy the experience?
Could my sense of purpose make me more successful and give me fulfillment at the same time? (I really love the idea of passion to profit!)
Could I be seen as a stronger, more courageous person if I bring more kindness into my business?
How can good people give all the time, altruistically, if they don’t make sure they have plenty to give?
So the question arises, “Is it really selfish to make money doing what I love or is it possible that it could be more generous than being poor?”
How can you transform your relationship with money?
