"Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow: Discovering Your Right Livelihood" is not your typical self-help book. The author does not make promises or encourage the reader to try to reach goals that may seem unattainable. She uses a very gentle and kind approach to try to make you see that you have to follow your heart to find what it is you are seeking.
"Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow: Discovering Your Right Livelihood" is about making suitable career choices, but I found that it relates to most, if not all, aspects of life. It is about not doing what society has programmed us to do, but rather letting our instincts guide us to the right path. Each of us has different talents, abilities, likes and dislikes, and knowing what these things are and going toward them, instead of away from them, will help each person to become whole.
As an example of what the author describes, I know a lady who earns a living from several different hobbies. She has to live very frugally, but she loves everything she does (tailoring, spiritual healing, artwork, etc.) and all of the people she interacts with. She allows her instinct to guide her along the path that is correct for her and, as a result, her life is very fulfilling.
Marsha Sinetar discusses how many of us do things simply to please others, but we have to stand up for ourselves (sometimes displeasing the ones we seek approval from) in order to find inner peace. She states frequently that the people around us (even our loved ones) may not understand or approve of us marching to the beat of our own drummer, but it is necessary if we are to be complete.
"Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow: Discovering Your Right Livelihood" is about getting in touch with yourself and, for many people, taking some risks. I found this book to be insightful and thought-provoking.
