I always say to people: Do what you love, follow your bliss, listen to your heart and intuition, and know that by doing so, success will have no choice but to follow. Of course, when you get stuck in a job you don’t love, when you are doing the things that took you off your path for too long, hearing words like doing what you love, success, passion, etc. can be quite irritating.Most of us live with this impression that we don’t really have control over what we do, over what happens to us, over our happiness and our unhappiness, and that we are victims, and of course, as victims, all we know how to do, is defend ourselves. Because we spend so much time in the defending mode, we forget who we really are, we forget that we do have a choice and that we do have the ability to shift our lives in the right direction.
First of all, I strongly believe, actually, I don’t believe, I know, that we all have something unique and special about ourselves, and that what I have, no one has, and what you have, no other person in the world has, and I also know that these are our unique gifts and talents, these are the things that we are born with, and if we choose to focus and work on them, and with them, we will encounter success, and we will be happy, we will be content with our lives, our environment, our friends, family, and all that will happen to us and all around us.
This is not something I invented, it is something that every successful person who is doing what he/she loves, will tell you. You want to be happy, work with that which you love, with that which you are so passionate about, and you will discover things about yourself that you never thought were there.
If right now, you are in a place where you aren’t exactly doing the things you love, or maybe, you can’t even get a job, you might want to pause for a while and start asking yourself a couple of questions, questions that might help you discover what is it that you really want, why is it that your life is the way it is, where would you like to be headed, how does the perfect life looks for you, and many other questions that might help you get back on the right track and start living the life that you really deserve.
So if you are you willing to start the voyage of discovery into unknown lands and rediscover yourself, if you are willing to experience some short-term pain and discomfort so that you can later experience real happiness, you will be able to do what you love and be successful at it.
