“Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” – Confucius
What does that quote even mean?
We all need to work don’t we?
My interpretation of that is, if the service you bring to the world is something you love and are passionate about, you’ll do it everyday, like breathing, but with the bonus emotions of great joy, fulfilment, love and satisfaction experienced at the same time. It won’t feel like work because it makes you feel alive!
I’ve had “jobs” before and as grateful as I am for the experience I wouldn’t want to go back to that. Rigid hours, job descriptions, limited growth. Blah!
Bring on a life with a vision and mission fuelled by passion! Living the dream!
What’s your passion?
As for me, I am passionate about singing. I will usually either be singing out loud, or in my mind, depending on the given moment.
I don’t have to remind myself to sing. That’s key to me knowing it’s a true passion of mine.
Another is my passion for connecting people to information and inspiring ideas. It’s these passions that have created a direction for my growth into service giving me opportunities to passionately serve a community of thousands through Social media.
The best bit about what I do is that I do it with others who are also passionate about doing what they love.
So if you’re feeling like you’re stuck in a “job” or you want to bring in more passion – here’s 3 things you can do right now to move closer to doing what you love…
1. Acknowledge what your TRUE passion is
If you don’t just – know it – then perhaps you can uncover it with this handy little question – What do you do when you are procrastinating on the work you’re “meant” to be doing? That could very well be your passion.
2. Add it to your vision board, 90 day goals, weekly intentions
Give your passion pride of place in all that you do. It all starts with the vision to be living it in whichever manner you choose and you’ll need a plan for that.
3. Add massive value to others
Become well known for it, the expert in it, the go-to person for it. Share it with others
You can do this in as BIG or as small steps as you like. At the end of the day any steps you took towards living your dreams will get you closer.
