I recently read an article on the internet that to me asked a very interesting question..Why is Harry Potter so popular?
Which of course is also asking, can any of us mere mortals, so to speak, do something that might bump up our lives in a significant way?
Is there in even a less spectacular degree a bit of J K Rowling in the rest of us? The article i mentioned gave some interesting thoughts on what made Harry Potter the mega success it became, and why others did not follow suit, at least not so spectacularly.
I think the thoughts had merit, but for me, it seemed to leave out one VERY significant factor.
From interviews i've found that Rowling truely LOVED writng the Harry Potter books. It thrilled and delighted her, every nook and cranny of it, Sort of like Einstein with Science, or Beckham with soccer. They did what they were passionate about, and did it regardless of money. Look how they did it, even after they became wealthy. That seems to be a CLUE.
WHAT WOULD YOU LOVE TO DO?
WHAT WOULD DEEPLY HOLD YOUR INTEREST?
WHAT WOULD ENERGIZE YOU?
WHAT WOULD INTRIGUE YOU, FUEL YOUR CURIOSITY AND PASSION?
WHAT WOULD ENGAGE YOU, EVEN IF YOU ALREADY HAD MILLIONS?
Might knowing that be your path to a greater, richer, more fulfilling, more meaningful, and subjectively more significant life?
