“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” – Steve Jobs
It is our personal responsibility to find out what we enjoy doing, what we have a natural talent for, and then to throw our whole heart into doing that.
Achievers are commonly those who have found a field where their natural strengths and abilities are exactly what is required to do the job and achieve the results desired. When you are doing what you love to do, you seem to have a continuous flow of excitement, energy and ideas to do what you do even better.
Don’t let fear or insecurity stop you from trying new things. Believe in yourself. Do what you love and most importantly, be kind to others, even if you don’t like them. – Stacy London
Whichever route we take, we should expect a struggle. Finding the work you love is very difficult than many people thought. Most people fail because we don’t know what we want. For example you should not enroll to a course influence by what your peers are doing or to solely make fast money. But if you have the destination in sight you’ll be more likely to arrive at it.
Why don’t they just quit their jobs and pursue what they love to do you ask?
Well many people provide two reasons :
1: They don’t know what they love to do.
2: Fear. They’ve got a lifestyle to maintain, bills to pay for, families to take care of, fear of no steady source of income, fear of what other people might think or say about them, etc. If you’re afraid of failing, you won’t take the necessary risks required to achieve your goal.
Remember what Al Lopez Said “ Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it’s business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don’t love what you’re doing and you can’t give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You’ll be an old before you know it.
Whether you are following your passion or doing what you love to do; you should always know that there is a risk to the equation. For everyone who has made a good living by doing something they enjoy, there are countless of others who are equally talented people but were not able to do it.
