There are two types of income or profit…Psychic income and Financial income
- Psychic income is feeling good about yourself and the work that you do–money cannot buy this feeling. There is a large percentage of the population who would choose to make less money if they could work in a profession that they really enjoyed. Those who achieve this find that they don’t dread going to work on Monday morning, but actually look forward to it.
- Psychic income creates happiness in your work and occurs when you are in optimal flow—using your true talents.
- After a certain income level, there is no correlation between the amount of money you earn and happiness. You cannot buy happiness–happiness is thoughts that you and only you control. Abraham Lincoln said, “Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
- Another way of achieving psychic income is by helping others. Giving back is an important part of life. Doing things that make a difference in other people’s lives can only enhance your own happiness and sense of satisfaction.
