For many people, the job no longer has much to do with passion. We practice it to make money and that’s it. If you don’t really enjoy your job, but your profession, and you don’t look forward to work in the morning, then something may go very wrong in your life.
Find your calling
Make sure you turn your calling into a profession. So work professionally to do what you enjoy and what you enjoy. Always ask yourself the question, if all professions were paid equally, would you stay in your current job? You only have one life, your time here is limited and it would be pretty sad if at some point you had to admit on your deathbed that you wasted your time on yourself personally.
It’s never too late to change anything. Make sure your work life is filling and making you happy because it will fill most of your life.
Appreciate your experience
We humans tend to define ourselves solely in terms of material possessions. We feel good when we have money, drive a great car, wear nice clothes and have something to show for. But our greatest treasure is something completely different. It’s our experience. They define us, really say something about our maturity and cannot be taken from us by anyone.
You will agree that we are right when we say that an employee with 20 years of professional experience is usually a bit ahead of a recent university graduate. Your experiences make you unique, whether it was good or bad. They are firmly burned into your wealth of experience and you can draw your life from them. What you have experienced cannot be bought by money, so appreciate this incredible and ever-growing knowledge in your head.
And which of your experiences are you particularly proud of? Tell me about your greatest achievements and share your wisdom with us. I have had positive experiences in the category ‘Ruthless Quotes‘.
