I’ve just bumped into this quote by the legendary change leader of the American petroleum industry, one of the richest men on earth even to this date, John D. Rockefeller:
The road to happiness lies in two simple principles: find what interests you and you can do well, and put your whole soul into it — every bit of energy and ambition and natural ability you have.
I couldn’t help but recall numerous questions posted by affiliates in forums, blogs, e-mails, Twitter, etc, etc — the questions on what is the secret to becoming a successful affiliate. By “successful” they all imply “happy with what you’re doing, because you’re making enough money to afford anything you want.” Well, the first American billionaire has summarized the recipe for us all — “find what intrests you and what you can do well” (read: what you’re passionate and knowledgeable about, as well as what you’re skilled at), and go for it with “every bit of energy and ambition and natural ability you have”! The results won’t be immediate, but if you’re patient and persisitent, they will follow.
