Sometimes you get paid --sometimes you don't get paid.
If you don't care, and really mean it - your life is happy.
Try, caring that you did not get paid for what your worth!!!! Oh Boy--- Unhappiness!!!!!!
The reward comes from doing the work , creating what the skill or the - outcome / process by which you live in order to get those rewards.
I have no regrets about my choice to live an uncomplicated life with very little possessions and very little to do with what the world creates as financial rewards.
I know artist that get paid lots$$$$$$$ for their work but the process is the same -its not the money that brings about the REWARD.
Its the regurgitation of the ideas and project inside you that gives you that endorphin buzz.
