If You Are Not Doing What You Love, You Are Wasting Your Time.

Millions of people across the globe today aren’t happy with their job or where they are in life. It is primarily because they are doing things that are not even close to what they dreamt of doing. Many people who wanted to be a musician are now working in a bank, and many people who wanted to be chefs are now working as policemen or in the army, and so on. Life hasn’t turned out to be what many people wanted to be, but there is a choice. 

Life always gives you choices and opportunities, and the onus is on you to strike at the right time. You might feel that you are trapped in the vicious cycle of life where you can’t leave your job or can’t make a switch. But, there is always a way out if you look at the right places and at the right time. Your time is precious, and you shouldn’t waste even a moment doing what you don’t love. Take control of your life and make a plan that leads you in the direction of what you love, but with kindness, gratitude, and love.

Identify your love and passion

Unfortunately, many people today have forgotten what they love or what they are passionate about in the rat race they are in to earn their livelihood. It shouldn’t be the case, but it is the reality of millions of people today across the globe. If you think you are one of them, you need first to identify what you love and what your passion is. If you are unhappy with your job or your life, see what the root cause is. It will help you find the answers you’re looking for.

Make a plan

It is never easy in life to make that long-awaited switch. And, it is impractical to simply leave the job that you hate or relocate to another city or get out of a relationship, and so on. Have a practical approach towards life and make a contingency plan that can support your life while you slowly make the switch to what you want to do. If you’re going to follow your interest in the music industry, try looking for a job in that field even if it pays less. It will help you learn the intricacies of the music industry while providing you enough to survive, at least.

doing what you love

Make a plan that takes you towards your goal in a way that doesn’t make you dependent or which doesn’t leave you in the middle of anywhere. If you leave your current job without even thinking of what to do next, you lose both ways. It is neither smart nor practical. So, do your research and try to find ways that will take you closer to what you do. Make a plan and write it down and ask yourself at the end of each day what you did today that contributed to your plan or brought you closer to your end goal. It will help you stay accountable and ensure you remain dedicated and determined and do not lose the battle midway.

Stick to what you love through challenges

There would obviously be hurdles and challenges on your way to do what you want to do and love to do. Life isn’t easy for anyone, and chances are it won’t be for you as well. But, do know that there are always sweet fruits of success on the other side of hardships, struggles, and pain. You need to stay strong and sail through the doldrums of challenges that life throws at you, and you’ll eventually be doing what you love forever without wasting time doing things that you hate. Look at any successful person on the planet. They did what they loved and powered through all the challenges they faced successfully to become as successful they are today. Don’t give up!

Keep learning and improving 

One thing that is important while you pursue your passion and what you love is to make sure that you continue to learn and improve. Irrespective of the field or career you’ve chosen for yourself, there would always be people around who are better than you or from whom you can learn a lot. Keep learning and improving yourself with time, as it is how you reach the top. Strive to be the best at what you do, and rest assured you’ll find success sooner than later.
