Life is too short and too precious to spend on anything that does not give you a sense of fulfillment while doing it. Loving and enjoying what you do should supersede earning a high paying salary and having a big title. No matter how hard you try to pretend, when you are at a job where you feel stuck, unfulfilled, and unhappy, people notice before we do.
The feeling of an unfulfilled dream will always show in your attitude and response to others. Why waste your time in a career or job that does not give you emotional and psychological fulfillment? Be honest with yourself and don’t be afraid to move forward. If you find it difficult to do,
Here are three reasons why it is important to do what you love and love what you do.
1. You Will Experience a High Sense of Fulfillment: Your job should not just be a source of income to you, it should also be a source of joy and fulfillment. If the reverse becomes the case, you might end up missing out on your life's best moments. You should be proud when telling others what you do. Your job or career can motivate others when you are doing exactly what you have always dreamt of doing in life, not what others expected you to do. Even more importantly, your emotional stability is very important when it deals with what you do, both at the workplace and home. Your emotional stability gives you extra motivation to pursue your goal when this is achieved, the sense of accomplishment is amazing.
2. Dedication to Service: When you do what you love and actually love what you do, it builds a strong belief system in you that you have a mission and that purpose in life. It causes you to dedicate yourself to your craft as an act of service and an expression of love. Although earning a great income is important, your main focus is to provide quality service and satisfaction to your customers, employer and whoever comes around.
3. You Become an Inspiration to Others: The reason most people discourage others from doing what makes them happy is because they are afraid to take chances of their own. When you step out on faith and do what you love, you become an inspiration to others. So many people need a source of inspiration, you can become their motivation by intentionally or unintentionally giving them encouragement to do the same.
In closing, ask yourself this question, “Am I doing what I love? If not, it’s time to examine who and what is stopping you from pursuing your passion. If you find that the person is you, then it’s time to get out of your own way so your passion will lead you to a career you will love. You owe it to yourself to live your best life and to be your best you. You deserve it because you are worth it.
