I thought [it] was a honorable job. My opinion of law enforcement has changed over the years but I still remember how I felt about the idea of wearing the badge. I used to dream and have aspirations. Why did I stop? I got to the point where my biggest aspiration is making it to my next day off alive. I think that at some point we inadvertently decided that this was it. This mundane lifestyle is all we will ever have. We don’t think that anything can change our lives at this point in the game. We stopped caring and wanting to be better. Having dreams is a let down at this point in our lives.

Gains in resources don’t have to be monetary — they can be in terms of knowledge and experience. Satisfaction comes from completing goals, and the feeling of that satisfaction differs by where it comes from. The deepest satisfaction comes from satisfying higher-order goals, goals that come from higher values like beauty, truth, and accomplishment.

The challenge of waking up each day and figuring out how I can best use my energy and creativity to help others, of keeping going despite inevitable failures, gives a deep sense of fufillment no amount of money could buy

I will want to do it even if there’s no financial reward at the end. The truth however, is that when you’re in alignment with your gifts, calling, passions – the likelyhood of making money is much higher – the difference is it’s more of a by product that an end goal.
