Here’s a question for you…when you think of the work you do, the way you make your living, what’s your reaction?
Do your shoulders droop and the big black cloud of doom hover overhead because you’re not happy with what your doing?
Does a big wide smile come across your face because you love what you do for a living so much it doesn’t even feel like work?
My hope for you is the second scenario, but the reality for the majority of folks (at least until I get ahold of ‘em) is they feel trapped in unfulfilling work because they “have to pay the bills”. They’ve become a victim of the “Daily Grind” instead of doing work that’s truly meaningful for them. At first, they feel like they have no choice when in reality all they have to do it take care of that darned “d”, as in DECIDE.
In other words, rather than feeling stuck, they just need help d-eciding to do something different.
Can you really make a living doing something you love? Something you’re passionate about?
Not only yes, but a big, fat, hairy YES!
Set some time aside this weekend and just think…just dream. What is it you love to do; that you’d do all day long whether you got paid for it or not? Write those things down. Make a list of whatever comes to mind and then see if there’s a way you could actually make money doing it.
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. What seems at first like a crazy idea could be a million dollar business-to-be.
So which will it be? Daily Grind or Daily Grin? It all starts with a dream, but the difference is in the “D”, the D-ecision to do what you love.
I think it was Confucius who said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”.
Confucius was right…
