This is a question where you’ll have to ask yourself in some part of your life. Whether you like it or not, you’ll have to deal with the answer, which is going to be different from one person to the other.
So, why not ask it in the early stage of your life? Having said that, for those of you who have come to the latter part of your professional career shouldn’t neglect it, too.
What was the reason behind selecting your career? Was it because of the money, or your passion? Most of us would like to give the latter answer. But eventually the main reason behind working is to earn money, so we can have a good time until we die.
What if the thing you are doing for a living is not giving the happiness you desired to have? Would you continue doing it, or wouldn’t hesitate to change it?
For everyone out there, this is going to be the ultimate truth behind working. After selecting the career path, which would be the one you thought you’d like to see yourself doing in a couple of decades ahead, you’ll realize that there’s no turning back.
But, I’d like to challenge that saying. What you selected in the past is not going to last forever. Nothing lasts forever, so, it’s going to be the same for your career as well.
When you start earning for what you’re doing, sometimes you’ll automatically fall in love with your profession, which is the ideal scenario. But that’s not the real situation, as the more you find the other occupations available out there, you’ll regret for not having selected them as your choice of profession. Everyone loves for a change, and there are more opportunities evolve and new careers are formed. It’d be impossible to follow everyone of them, but out of the pile, there may be some you’d think as possible candidates.
So, what happens to the passion you had when you selected your profession? Has it changed, too?
Remember, everything is bound to change, so as your passion.
If your work doesn’t align with your passion, don’t panic, just do whatever you do right now. But, don’t give up dreaming as well, as one day you’ll get there.
The real question is, whether it’s through your work or through your passion?
Whatever the answer may be, you’ll honestly be happy if that comes through your passion. It’s something attached to our souls, and hearts. That’s what will give us the most ecstasy.
So, why can’t we continue to do what our hearts say?
It’s not impossible.
It’s only that we don’t listen to it. Start today, figure out what your true passion is and act right away to give some life to it. Don’t wobble with your thoughts if your current working life doesn’t permit to allocate time to it. Compromise your time, and start pulling out minutes from your daily schedule, and later you’ll be amazed to see yourself having more time to do so.
Push yourself to do what your heart wants you to do. The money will follow without even knowing, and when you have reached that level, organize yourself even more and indulge in it for the rest of your life.
Eventually, you’ll be a winner.
