Too many of us have been brought up to believe that work is not meant to be enjoyed, let alone loved. Work is meant to give us a paycheck, not excite, energize or fulfill us.
But the opposite it true, Not only can we earn a living doing what we love; we owe it to ourselves to pursue that end. When we find ourselves in jobs/careers we dislike, that frustrates, saddens, or fatigues us, our mind, body and soul is telling us that we are not in the right place.
When we are doing what we love, by contrast we feel radiate, joy and passion, improving not only our own lives but also our environment. “”
Find out what you love: Do you believe that you can make a living doing what you love? If you could believe this, make a list of jobs/careers you have enjoyed and the ones you have not. Try to find the distinguishing feature within each category. When you have discovered what jobs made you happy and why, fashion the perfect job/career for yourself, using all the positive elements you have listed. Now visualize yourself in this job/career, believe that you will have it, and ask for help from mentors and others. Know that your loving can be your living.
When you do what you love, You create the kind of environment in which abundance flourishes.
