How to find a job you love in life
You don’t have to be an analyst to say with absolute certainty: the majority of the working-age population of the planet is forced to work at a job they don’t like. This is especially noticeable in large cities, where millions of people go to work every morning: they are bored in the morning traffic jams, pushing in the subway, freezing at bus stops – with gloomy faces they hurry to where they will “squeeze out” the results that their employer needs, but not themselves.
And at some point one of them decides: “That’s it! Enough working for the man, I have to find my own favorite thing”! And instead of sitting down and thinking about what he wants to do, the person turns to various business coaches and trainers for help. He naively believes that he can be helped by this “guru of something,” whose bread is to speak beautifully and a lot, in cliché and often without understanding the essence of the subject.
Signs of a Favorite Cause
A hobby almost always grows into a profession, a source of income. A hobby is not, it is just a pleasant pastime that brings peace of mind, no more. A hobby is getting pleasure from the process itself, when the result does not matter much.
Signs of a hobby include:
- Total dedication. You devote to it all your free time, which flies by unnoticed.
- Concentration on work. You do not force yourself, but completely “go” into the process.
- Search for new knowledge. You constantly and with pleasure search for the new information, apply in practice, sharpen your skills.
- Only positive emotions. Loving a job brings peace, tranquility and a good mood.
- Professional growth. Favorite business doesn’t tolerate dilettantism: talent, purposefulness and experience are necessary for successful development.
- Orientation to the result. The process is as important as the end goal.
If it’s something you really love, you’ll never want to delegate it to anyone – you’ll do everything yourself, with pleasure and enthusiasm.
How do you find your favorite thing to do?
You, as an adult, have already formed their preferences in life, that’s according to them, and try to understand what you would like to do. It does not have to be immediately large-scale enterprise, you can start with a small, but promising direction.
Any particular algorithm in finding his favorite occupation does not exist, with the exception of banal and in most cases, failed “to peep at others and stupid copy.
Guided by one simple principle: yours is what you like a soul. And having decided, already decide the technical and organizational issues with the development of ideas and monetization.
Not out of place would be to determine your level of ambition in life – are you ambitious or not? And if so, how ambitious? If you have low ambition, you risk being “overshadowed” by people with higher self-esteem. If your ambition is too high, then you’re out of luck, because conceit and arrogance have never been good for anyone. But adequate ambition, when a person really assesses his abilities, will help not only to take the right course to the goal, but also to rationally spend strength on the way to it.
Do not forget about common sense. Be decisive, but not without fanaticism, for example, do not be enthusiastic about only one “raw” idea immediately quit unloved work – too great a risk of losing your livelihood. Undoubtedly, history knows many examples where people started literally “from scratch” and achieved stunning success, but few know what they went through.
And remember: your favorite business does not have to be prestigious or trendy. It doesn’t matter if you grow cabbage or write bestsellers, as long as you really enjoy it and feel happy about it!
