Chase The Money Or Passion?

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.

3 Effective Ways To Foster Encouragement

If you look at the things you do in your life, the best outcomes can be obtained with the activities you do with your whole heart. Am I right?

Of course, nobody likes to do anything he or she doesn’t love or impress him or her. But there are situations that we need to overcome where we don’t enjoy most of the things we do. In those occasions how do you keep yourself motivated?

Imagine you are involved in a task which takes a week to complete, and you spend at least five hours per day until you reach the ultimate goal. Now, as humans, there are times we feel like giving up, mainly due to not being able to keep ourselves happy for what we do. It’s the same case even though we are to beat a deadline. Those are moments we need to encourage ourselves, no matter what happens in our lives, as our priority is to get the job done.

Now look at many of the successful people in the world. What if they had given up their mission in the mid-way and had focused on something else? The world would not be the same then, and it could have impacted all of us in a different ways as well.

Take breaks.

This is really important even if you really love your work. Usually we don’t seem like taking a time-off when we are involved in something we like, and getting out of it also makes us feel discouraged.

But, trust me, you need that break.

Think of the future, may be several hours ahead of you, or may be several days ahead. If you don’t take little breaks while you are working, eventually you’ll loose the interest of the work which you had already fallen in love before.

Change work.

Alright, the break could be a tea-break, or a small walk up and down for five minutes.

Yes, that’s good for your health. But, try to do something else, may be another task, or watch or listen to music or any other video. Some may say that it’s not efficient as you’ll loose the concentration to the work. But, that’s exactly what you need to do. Give a little rest to your brain from the activity where its focus was glued into. You will realize how your brain adjusts to the previous task in no time, once you get back to it.

Get out.

What does that mean? Yes, I meant get outside.

This may not sound like practical in some seasons, but try your best to change the environment. The nature is something we enjoy for free of charge. Indulge yourself in it. Go out, look around you, try to play a little with something and move your limbs deliberately and breathe fresh air. Give yourself a small treat by taking out from those confined areas, and that could be a help for every senses you’ve got. If you have trees outside, stare at them for good five to ten minutes. That’s an awesome treatment to your eyes, and eventually with this little exercise, without even knowing, you are doing some good for your health as well.

Fresh air

Those three things are highly effective for short-term missions. Try to practice this in your life for a month and experience the difference you make to yourself and to your work.
