DO WHAT YOU LOVE.
How many of you TRULY love what you do for work / job / career ? I know I sound beyond optimistic but I DO believe we should all be able to get up to a job that we LOVE, and whole-hertedly want to do. I see too many people that are unhappy with their job and life, and do nothing about it. They simply succumb to the fact that they don’t have the ability to do what they love. Sometimes (and most often than not) it will take doing something you might not LIKE for a little while to actually DO what you want to do (i.e if you’re starting a business and need some capital, or need that Bridge-Job to pay the bills while you work on your other business). WHATEVER it is, I do believe in living your passion, because there is only ONE of us on this planet – so whatever gifts, skills, unique personality traits you possess, they are ALL yours. WE need you. We need you to shine bright and share your gifts with the world!
Here are few small steps which will hopefully help you on your way, and if not maybe it will just be something to think about, mediate on, and maybe start taking steps to
ONE: Believe in yourself. The main reason people don’t try to do work they love, don’t even look for it, is because they don’t think they’re good enough. That’s a BIG FAT lie! We’ve so often been lead to believe we are insufficient, that it’s scary to fail, when neither is remotely true.
You are not only sufficient, YOU are PERFECT and failure is inevitable, but it’s how you succeed. Failure is how we learn to get better. It’s a step towards success. Without failure, would we take that extra step? Write that 10th, 20th, 30th e-mail to get someone to take a chance on you… it’s what drives us, so don’t be afraid to fail as it will only lead to success.
TWO: Find the work you love. This is probably the most difficult step for many people, because they don’t know WHAT they want to do!
BUT this is the fun stuff! Make a list of all of the things that you LOVE to do, what excites you, what do you love to do in your spare time, what are your passions? You get to explore many different things and avenues that maybe you never thoughts about. You LOVE to travel – so what about exploring to be a travel agent, travel guide, start your own retreat business…Explore yourself & your passions. Learn about what you’re good at and what you love. I truly believe that if you HELP people and have that as your base motivator you will never, EVER FAIL.
THREE: Take the leap. It’s the scariest, most exciting thing ever to take the leap and do work you love. BUT it’s 100000% worth it. We spend most of our lives working, so why don’t you feel like you deserve to LOVE what you do.
Making a living doing what you want isn’t exactly easy, but it’s so completely worth it. Create and do something that will HELP people. Do it the best you can, and keep getting better. Make it uniquely you, and tell your story. Don’t be a marketer or push yourself on people, but REALLY HELP them and they’ll come to you, and so will your dream job.
It’s out there, but you have to go LOOKING for it because it won’t just find you.
love & light
