Wealth versus Passion

Apr 13, 2008
Wealth consultant Roger Hamilton is a leading expert in Asia. After making millions by the time he was 30 years old, he created the Wealth Dynamics Profiling System and wrote the international bestseller, "Wink and Grow Rich".

XL Results Foundation, co-founded and chaired by Roger Hamilton, is the largest entrepreneur network in Asia Pacific. It publishes the magazine "XL Magazine" which happens to be the very first of its kind in the world, because it is dedicated to social enterprise.

Roger has made and lost millions in his lifetime. He believes we should learn from our mistakes, and today he teaches others to do the same. He specializes in building new businesses throughout Asia. He's what you would call a serial entrepreneur, and in fact, he launched his first Asian business in 1997 during the Asian Crisis.

Wealth isn't everything to Roger. Passion is what drives him. Passion is that little voice in your head that makes you want to jump out of bed rather than hitting the snooze button. Getting started on the day ahead is so much more rewarding when you're doing something you truly enjoy whether it makes you rich or not.

Roger looks at the relationship between wealth and passion in a unique way. His definition of wealth isn't how much cash you have. It's what's left over when all the money is spent or lost. If your only passion is money, you'll have nothing when the money is gone. Having other passions allows you to rebuild wealth when necessary.

Life is made up of one choice after another. Roger Hamilton learned that lesson well while attending Cambridge University. He went to school to study architecture, but he had a passion for rowing. He enjoyed practicing with the team. In addition, he had friends who encouraged him to get a job to pay for a fun trip to Greece with them.

So many times we're also faced with several choices that are all equally important to us. When that happens, Roger likes to turn the choice into just one long question to get one combined answer. We can multitask at work, so why not multitask with our passions?

Roger's dilemma was filling his architectural portfolio, making money, and keeping up with rowing team practices at the same time. He decided to start making drawings of famous buildings. Those drawings filled his portfolio, copies of them were sold for money, and that left him plenty of free time for the rowing team. It was a winning combination!
