"The majority work to make a living; some work to acquire wealth or fame, while a few work because there is something within them which demands expression."
Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
How many of your friends and acquaintances truly dislike their current job? More than a handful I would wager. In fact, dislike may not be a strong enough word. Statistics conclusively point out a not so surprising fact: a vast majority of people DO NOT enjoy the work they do daily. As a matter of fact, most people detest the very thing that they do for a living.
Seems kind of crazy to spend forty or more hours each week working at a job you hate, doesn't it? Why in the world should anyone spend almost half of their waking hours doing something they do not want to do?
"Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work."
For crying out loud, does it make any sense whatsoever to keep plugging away, day after ho-hum day, at a job you wished you didn't have? No, it doesn't. But that's precisely what millions of people do every day. They don't go to work because they want to, they go because they feel they have to instead.
And no doubt about it, that 'have to' part isn't a whole lot of fun.
'enjoy your job, there is no way you can possibly give it everything you have. No chance whatsoever; zero, zip, zilch. It's just not going to happen. It is impossible for any of us to throw our entire heart and soul into something that doesn't excite us, motivate us, turn us on from head to toe. Oh sure, we still go to work, but rather than going for the gusto and giving it our absolute best, we just go through the motions.
And that's no way to go through life.
"Work is love made visible."
Hey, I know work is no walk in the park some days. No one is going to be thrilled with every single aspect of his or her job every single day. Even people who love what they do have days where they wonder why they ever entered their chosen field of endeavor.
But given a choice of doing something they love and dealing with the accompanying problems and doing something else altogether, they wouldn't give up what they do for anything in the world. Why? Because they ABSOLUTELY LOVE what they do for a living - and so should you.
Too may people labor away in a dead end job; a job that's going nowhere. At least nowhere they want to go. Maybe their job pays the bills, maybe it doesn't, but one thing is for certain: they don't love their what they do everyday. They clock in, do their time and then clock out.
What's wrong with this picture? Just about everything. These people never once realize that their lives could be everything they have ever dreamed they could be - if they would just follow their hearts.
"Do what you love. The money will follow."
How about you? Is your profession a labor of love or just plain labor? Do you love what you do - or would you love to be doing something else instead? If your current job isnt turning you on - maybe even turning you off - maybe, just maybe, you should consider turning it loose.
There is something inside of you that makes you who you are - and what you are destined to become. Something you are really good at, something you were put on earth to do. Something you love so much that you would gladly do it for free. That special something is precisely what you need to be doing for a living.
Don't say it can't happen, because it can. Don't say you can't make any money doing what you love to do, because you can. As a matter of fact, the most successful people around are the ones who do what they love to do every day of their lives. Because they love what they do, they do it extremely well. And since they do it well, they get paid handsomely for doing it. They make their play time their pay time. And so can you.
That's right, you too can make an exceptional living doing what you love to do. And have a blast doing it. Instead of frittering your life away in a dead end job, a job you wished you didn't have, you need to create your own fortune by doing what you do best, those things you were born to do.
And start doing them right now.
The Bottom Line: It's time to make your job - and love it.
