Let's say money is like butterflies. Most of us will wake up every day, grab a net, go out there and try to catch some butterflies. Some days will be good, some days will be bad. Few people get lucky and catch heaps of butterflies without too much effort while most of us will struggle to catch enough. We buy bigger nets and improve our skills in butterfly catching. We can build a cage and store some butterflies for a rainy day. Sometimes, the cage may accidently open or someone will steal your butterflies. This is a very tiresome way of making a living. Sooner or later, it will get you down.
Rather than catching butterflies, start to build a beautiful garden. Yes it will take longer to prepare, sow and nurture, but once your garden starts to flower, the butterflies will start to come in droves. The better you look after the garden, the more butterflies will come, and this will create a virtuous cycle. You don't have to worry about someone stealing or losing your butterflies, because there are always more coming.
Apply this concept to your career or business. Get out of non-rewarding careers or exhausting businesses and start to build something close to your heart.
