How do you view your job? As something that brings home a paycheck, or do you consider your job to be something that you are passionate about? If you are a member of TGIF club, then this is for you!
Many truly successful people in life are leading successful lives because they are following their passion. They really enjoy going to work each and every day. This is because they feel that they are making a difference each time they do so. They have found that “thing” in their life where work is joy.
So how can you get to the point where you are performing a job that you really enjoy each day? One way to achieve this is to look inside yourself and discover what gifts and talents you have. If you are not sure what your talents are, ask a family member or a friend.
Schools today focus on teaching you the skills to get a good job, without even tapping into passion. You are taught to train for a good paying job and while fun at first, the excitement of it wears off. After a few years in your profession you are feeling bored and unfulfilled. This is exactly why there are so many people pursuing a job that they aren't happy with. Welcome to the working for the weekend sentiment. Don't worry, you are far from alone. Do not let that keep you stuck in life.
Let's take a look at some of the gifts and talents you may already possess. You may be a great musician or singer, do you enjoy dancing? Do you love working with people? Or you may possibly be a great listener. What brings you joy?
Once you can identify one of your talents then you want to look for ways to use it. If you enjoy working with people, you may consider working with school children or even seniors. If you are a great listener you could become a social worker, a counselor or even a human resources person.
If you can't pursue your talent full time then think about doing it occasionally. You could also volunteer your time by using your talents. If you enjoy animals you could volunteer to help raise money for the humane society. Or raise needed equipment and tools for a local charity.
When you start to follow one of your passions you will instantly feel happier with your life. You will have a purpose in life, something to look forward to each week. Finding a passion-outlet leads to greater confidence and self-esteem and this skills into every aspect of your life!
Your passion is not required to be your job. While you still may have to work to pay your bills and provide for your family. You have now found a new outlet - your passion. This could be the perfect way to improve your life, reduce stress and feel as though you are doing some good in the world. It could also open doors to opportunities you wouldn't have had.
