Have you ever thought that maybe the reason you are not happy is that you do not love what you do? You will be amazed at the number of people who are frustrated with what they do, and they are always waiting for the day when their torture will come to an end. Sometimes it can be difficult to be crazy about what you do truly but when it is sucking the life out of you, quitting may never be the answer.
The Secret To Happiness
There is a secret that has always kept me going in life and has always made my days better. James Matthew Barrie said, “The secret of happiness is not in doing what one likes, but in liking what one does.”
Ever since I knew about this, my experience has never been the same. Let us face it, not so many of us are blessed to do what we love. The best thing one can do is love what they do. Be crazy about what you do because, in that passion and love, you will find joy and fulfillment. Everything we do has its positives and negatives. Therefore, even if you do what you like, there will be those days when your feelings may change, and you may like doing something else better. Since you may not shift to doing what you now prefer, you will end up unhappy. But when you choose to like what you do, you will never have reasons to feel unhappy because of what you do.
How To Love What You Do?
Are you wondering how to turn your tormentor to the love of your life so that you can always be happy and excited about what you do? It is very simple. This is what I did, and it worked. You can also put it to the test and you will realize that you will love what you do. Identify that one fact about what you do that is unique, interesting, challenging, exciting, and fulfilling. There is always something about every kind of job that gets one excited and fulfilled. It can be serving people, leading people, manufacturing an amazing and important product and so on. There is always a joy in offering services or products that humans need. Find that thing that excites you. Also, always have it at the back of your mind that because of what you do, someone else will be happy. When you believe that you can make someone else happy, you will find your happiness.
Maintaining the Positivity All the Way
Always think positively about what you do. If not, all the negative thoughts will drown you in a river of unhappiness. Every time I find myself struggling and thinking negatively about what I do, I always say to myself, “Not everyone will like it, but I should love it.” This always keeps me on toes and stirs my thinking to the positive direction.
Liking what you do brings you a lot of things. You will enjoy:
A sense of purpose
Since you stand to gain all these by liking what you do, why shouldn’t you try it? Make it your life principle that you will always love what you do.
