I was watching one of my favorite shows on ESPN 2’s First Take. It’s one of my favorite shows because Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith can actually come on a 2 hour show day after day and debate with skill and are able to admit when they are in the wrong. Not to mention the All Star lineup that they keep packing in there to entertain us. Yesterday Kevin Hart was on there and I he is such a genius at adlibbing. It’s a show that keeps my attention and I love the rich language of Stephen A. Smith. The arguments are thought provoking and it arrests me every morning for two hours when I attempt to do something productive for the day. No complaints here. I even go as far as recording it on DVR when it is more poignant that I won’t be able to catch the show.
Today Ken Jeong was on the show and this guy is as funny as they come. I like his story, because it is not the typical starting from the bottom and getting to the top. He didn’t live in a rough neighborhood, have a baby at an early age, blah, blah, blah. What a lot of people don’t know is that he was actually a physician before becoming a comedian. Learning that a couple years back hit me like a ton of bricks. Obviously, he had a passion for something other than studying the human body. I applaud him on getting his degrees and getting a degree worth having in today’s world. But there must have been something intriguing to him about getting into comedy. The stress has to be less and he certainly doesn’t have to worry about malpractice insurance and being sued for cutting off the wrong limbs.
He gets to sit back and make people laugh with his personality. I always preach to people that I know. Find something that you like to do and figure out a way to get paid for it. I will forever and always take a pay cut for happiness. If you are happy then you have a better chance of living a more fulfilling and happier life. The health benefits are astronomical and there are things in that money just can’t buy.
I have more than a handful of jobs and there is nothing that I love more than writing my own humble opinions and revealing TRUTH to people. Not only do I get to write my own opinions I have the liberty of not having to deal with someone interrupting me and trying to take over my craft. Writing for me is liberating and it pays very well in today’s e-book world. I am very pleased with writing and when I am not selling books I am writing in my journal that I wish to have published at the end of my life. The point here is simply this. Do what makes you happy in a positive way and get paid for it. Devote all of your energies and mindset to doing what you love. If a physician can be a famous comedian…it goes to show that you can do anything as long as you are focused.
