A lot of people have experienced getting stuck between choosing to do what they love and opting to earn more with doing the things they hate. The power of money is so strong that some people forget they still have a choice to do what’s fulfilling and satisfying. Life is more than just money. Financial freedom is more than just bills and coins. Financial freedom is a status free of regret because you made the right decisions during the critical times that you need to decide for yourself and for your family. So, if you are targeting to become financially free at a young age, what would you rather choose? 100,000 doing what you love or 200,000 doing what you hate?

You can’t do both the choices simultaneously but you can opt to do what’s more worth it. Try to weigh the options. List the consequences if you choose one over the other. Once you have the list of the consequences, check those that you are willing to undertake and risk. Expect that there will be failures and disappointments at first but as you go along with the process, you’ll either learn to control the outcome or just get used to the hardship. And as a reminder, always pick the one with less regrets. Standing up when it’s too late after you had the greatest regret of your life is harder than you can imagine.
If you would ask me what’s more worth it among the two options we have, I’d go for earning less with doing what I’m passionate about. Why? It’s simply because doing what you love for the next years lessens the possibility of regretting the decision you made. Don’t just focus on the current value of your passion if compared to other choices out there. Its value will surely increase as time pass by and as you learn the process of how to make money out of it. Whether it’s a business or an investment, you can always find a way to make it sustainable if you are really pursuing what’s fulfilling and satisfying. Always keep in mind that financial freedom is finding happiness and satisfaction after a while of sacrificing and difficulties.
If you still can’t decide what path to take, seek for the guidance of your parents or spouse. Surely, they have the pieces of the answer you’re looking for. You can also ask for the advice of the people whom you know have experienced the same thing. No matter where you land, the greatest key is being responsible. There will be sacrifices, yes, but what’s important here is you end goal. It’s your goal of becoming successful with your passion and use the money you earn to expand the market you have.
