Quote on Worth to Society

"What is important is how much service you can give the world and how much you can get done and how much better you can make things. These are important things. These are all that are important. A bank account never measured the worth of a man. His ability to help measured his worth and that's all. A bank account can assist one to help but where it ceases to do that it becomes useless."
— L. Ron Hubbard

Quote from "Problems of Work" by L. Ron Hubbard

Here is the quote that helped me out a lot in the book "Problems of Work" by L. Ron Hubbard:

"The only way to hold a job is to make it every day, to create it and keep it created. If you have no wish to create and continue that job, then there must be something at cross-purposes with purpose. There is something wrong between what you think would be a good purpose and what purpose your job has."

I realized that I had been thinking all along that I was at cross-purposes with my job, because it's not what I want to be doing until the end of my days. But, I do think it's got a good purpose. That's what helped me out in "Problems of Work" by L. Ron Hubbard.

Cross-Purposes means: "Conflicting or contrary purposes, aims or goals"
Purposes means: "Intended or desired results; aims; goals"

What has Scientology done for me lately?

I've been looking back at my blogs and realizing I sound a little preachy. That's not really how I want to come off. I really just want to tell people about my religion. It's something I'm proud of. Every time I learn more about it, I want to tell more people about it. So, that's really the point of this blog.

I've recently read a book by L. Ron Hubbard called "Problems of Work". The reason I was reading it is I was getting really bored and sick of my work. While reading it, I realized that, while work is something I have to do, day in, day out, it doesn't have to suck. I can totally have fun with it without slacking off. It's something that allows me to grow and expand. I work as an assistant and I have to say, it's not what I want to do for the rest of my life. My boss knows that. I want to write books - which is something I'm working on. But, while I have been perfectly forthcoming with my boss about what I want to do with my life, I am not always super in to my job. Now that I read this book, something clicked and I am in to my job now. It's fun and exciting. Once I figure out exactly what it was I read in the book that did this for me, I'll blog about it. Stay tuned.
