Living Your Passion In Your Career
Anyone and everyone can do what they love, even if they have yet to figure out exactly what that is.
Each one of you can and should do what will make you happy. So begin here:
1. Understand Why It Is That You Have Yet To Find Your Passion.
The first ingredient is the most important: finding your passion. Being passionate about something is one of the most — if not the most — important states that a person can find herself in. Passion gives you a reason to wake up each morning and the fuel to get through the day. Unfortunately, finding that something that plants the seed of passion in our souls often proves to be difficult. If you weren’t lucky enough to have passion find you on its own accord, then you have to consider why it is eluding you.
2. Come To Understand That You Are More Important.
Our lives can be hectic as it is, so finding time to do more may simply be an impossibility. For this reason, you have no choice but to trim the fat; in the end what matters most is you. Figure out what it is that you want out of life (once you have found your passion, this will be much easier) and then cut out all that does not work towards furthering this purpose.
3. Don’t Expect The World From The Onset.
Once we find what we know we will love, something that we want to turn into our careers and make our life journey, we must come to understand and to accept that it is just that — a journey. You cannot expect to start a journey at the finish line. You will more likely than not fail to make a single dollar at the onset. It’s not easy to stick through the grit to come out the other end prosperous — it takes courage, perseverance and the passion to keep at it when things aren’t going quite as you had expected. Things never go exactly the way you wish them to but in the end you will succeed, as long as you embrace the fight.
The only way to master any task is to relentlessly do — do when you want to do, do when you don’t feel like doing. You must do consistently no matter what circumstances make themselves present. Life has a knack for trying to throw us off our planned path. If we are able to stick it out to the end, we will be happy with the rewards we reap.
