"What do you want to be when you grow up?" I’m sure you were asked this question at least once when you were a youngster.
When asked the question, did you have an answer at the ready, or did you need a few minutes to think about it? We all had dreams of becoming something great, like an astronaut, a teacher, a doctor or a rock star, just to name a few.
Well, how did you do? Maybe you never aspired to be what you set out to be or said that you would become. But then again, things change. The older we get, our tastes change, our view of the world changes, even our goals change. We have families, get married, take on jobs, move out of home... There are also many things that can cause us to take a change in direction either from necessity or we might not have the confidence or belief in ourselves to do what we really wanted to. Others may put us off embarking on the path we had intended to take, there are untold reasons for why we may not be doing a job we truly love!
One of the most important lessons I’ve learned during my career path is to do something you love to do! I have literally had over 60 jobs from being a teen until I was in my late twenties, nothing seemed to last, and I had little passion for any of them that lasted past a few days! It wasn't until I trained as a therapist that I truly knew I had found my calling! I feel that if you enjoy what you get to do everyday you end up being happy in more ways than one. Life itself becomes so much more interesting and fun. You find yourself feeling more joyful and speaking passionately to others about your work. You wake each day grateful for the day ahead. The Monday morning feeling never enters your world in the way others talk of it because each working day for you is a pleasure. The experiences you have along the way become much more rewarding, and enrich your life in many ways.
So, if you are unhappy in your current situation, why not take steps now to change it? Somewhere out there is a job or business that is perfect for you. If you are already there, I applaud you, congratulations! If not, realise that it may take some time to figure out what you really want to do, and even more time to actually get there.
I know not everyone is in a financial place where they can just stop work and begin a new career, but we can all definitely begin to get into alignment with the possibility that it can be achieved. Addressing this part of the journey is a HUGE step in the right direction, when your thoughts, feelings and beliefs are in alignment with what you desire you cannot help but attract everything that you need to take action to claim what's rightfully yours for the taking!
That’s right! I can tell you from experience that finding and doing what you love is absolutely worth it, every step of the way. All of the research, studying, training, and hands-on experience has made me a stronger, more confident happier person. Feeling in charge of our own destiny is priceless! A great question I have often said to people to uncover what they would love to do is , "If money wasn't an issue, what would you do just for the love of it?" Journal and see what comes out, you might be really surprised to see what you would say... My next question is, "What first steps could you begin to take that could make that thing you would love to do make you an incredible joyful income? I wonder what might happen if you chose it?
