This type of thing is dangerous to preach to people, but especially the youth. It creates a false reality and ends up causing more problems and
depression. It is not wonder so many adults in the 20-30 ish range are depressed. They were kids when this type of idea started growing in the
schools. Every kids a winner. Do what you like and everything will fall into place. Well, the necessities of life care not for your happiness, only
your survival. A home, food, feeling safe, these things come at a price and that price is measured in dollars not memories.
Work being fun is a fortunate happenstance, not a fact of life. Work in general has always been hard and toilsome. You do it not for happiness, but to
bring the necessities for security and living. 100 Years ago, people knew this. There was no illusion and the product of that thinking were a people
who could handle adversity and troublesome times.
One poster brought up a situation and said person A likes to build home person B likes to serve. Those are generally not common among the masses of
people. What you would more typically experience when having the question "What if money were no object"? are things like, I would sit around with my
friends playing games, or I would have sex all day long, or I would travel the world, or I would go shopping every day. Even if you tried to apply
some profit gaining venture to those interest, such as writing about your experience for a magazine or travel guide or whatnot, 9 times outta 10,
writing or analytical evaluation are NOT what those same people would want to or have the skills to do.
What about all the posters here? How do you answer that question and can you make a career out of that? Can you provide food, shelter and security
As for me, if money were no object, I would have a large plot of land that I would wall off from the world and simply provide for the needs of myself
and my family. I would tend to my garden and animals and work on my shooting skills. Now, based upon that one might say I should be a farmer. I can
assure you that I would not be happy being a farmer, but I would be happy farming for myself.
The theme of the video is nice, but in the end its just a fantasy. It's a dangerous fantasy for people who cannot tell the difference between fantasy
