I'm pretty sure that at one moment in your life, especially when you're fresh into this working world, you would find yourself with this question: do you work for money or for interest?
Surely everyone has their own childhood aspirations, be it a firefighter, doctor or even a software developer; But does this ambition really apply once we're working adults?
I had a friend who has always wanted to become a firefighter. You'll hear him mention from time to time that all he wants to do is to save lives. I have to admit that it's a very noble ambition. Years of hard work finally paid off, and this friend of mine is now a firefighter.
As a kid, he only saw the bravery the firefighters have shown in their countless rescue missions, but never the fear each firefighter has to face. Now, as a firefighter, the interest is still there, but due to the extreme and dangerous demands of the nature of his work, his interest in his job has something dwindled.
In reality, no matter which job we choose for ourselves, the first factor in our decision has to be our interest. How else would you expect to remain in that job if not for the driving force of interest itself? Through the course of time, our interest might change once we've had an overdose of the interest. That is when we find ourselves in the mercy of the all powerful money.
Which is more powerful between interest and money? You're the one who'll be able to balance these two powers in your life.
