I immediately thought about my 20s: all the roadblocks and subsequent miracles that had to happen for me to have the privilege of sitting on that bike overlooking the New York City skyline that day.

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.
