Is who you are, what you do? or is what you do, who you are? The answer to that question may very well define the level of happiness you have for the rest of your life. To many people allow their jobs and careers to define the type of person they are as opposed to the inverse.
Instead of allowing your job to own you, own your job and do something that speaks to who you are inside. Not only will you be happier and healthier but the people around you will grow and learn from your satisifaction.
As you read this post prepping for your day, sitting at your desk, or getting ready for bed ask yourself if what you will do, are doing, or did today made you feel fullfilled. The choices we make in life define the person we will become. Don’t start a career just because it sounds cool, do it because you love it and have a passion for it. If what you have a passion for isn’t hiring, keep trying until they are and get a J-O-B to bide your time. A job is a source of income, your career should be your passion.
I get down on myself extremely easy. It is one of my biggest faults. I write this post thinking about how much I honestly enjoy writing for this site and how it has become a passion I didn’t think I would ever have. Somedays I wonder if anyone is listening, other than other bloggers who are probably smarter than me anyway. Either way, it has become a passion so I will continue to crank out what I can when I can. Don’t give up on your passion just because the guy nextdoor gets twice the traffic you do having been in the game equally as long.
While this may be my shortest post ever, it may be my deepest. Tell me, did the work you did today add to your life or just your stress level?
