The Fallacy of “Or”
Do any of these sound familiar?
• If I have too much, someone will have not enough.
• If I accept this, then it will be taken away from someone else.
• I can pay this or that.
• I can do what I love or choose a career to make money.
These all are constructs based on the fallacy of "or" and stem from a belief in scarcity.
I remember the “I want to earn a lot of money” or the “I want to do what I love” perceived choice I faced as I went into young adulthood. And, well, that is exactly the reality I created! When I did what I loved, I was broke. When I did things specifically to pay the bills, they got paid, but I was bored, unfulfilled, and often miserable.
Thankfully, these circumstances pushed me. It is quite a moment when we realize there is never a choice, that it is an imaginary construct!
Today, not only am I a successful author, I am a successful publisher, and even help those who want to self-publish – all with a mission is to create projects that promote goodness in the world.
When you love what you do and do it in such a way that it benefits humanity, money will flow to you naturally and easily. We can always choose “and.”
