How to Find a Job You Will Love
Can I realistically make a living doing what I love? How do you find out what you like? We all know how important it is to do what we love, and we hear it all too often.
When you actually do what you love, you make good physical changes. Spending time doing things you love relieves stress and lifts your mood. This lively look and positive attitude can help you expand your social circle, as it's always full of endorphins and lively. It reduces stress-causing hormones and may help manage chronic pain. It can also improve heart health and improve quality of life.
In other words, in order to be good at something, you have to like it. This can be summed up in 4 words, “Do what you love” But just talking to people like that is not enough. ‘Doing what you love. (Doing what you love)' is much more complicated.
First, you are likely to hit a realistic wall. You may have to choose the next best option, not always the best, because you have to make a living right away. If you have to sacrifice the people around you and the resources around you to make your dreams come true, the problem will be even more complicated.
If so, is it possible to find work that one likes without feeling guilty while minimizing sacrifice without noticing the people around him?
If you are struggling to find your way in this best state, you are very lucky. That's because there are many people in the world who preach and shout to do what they love, but there aren't many people who can tell the truth about their situation. And to be honest, those who preach like that must have been very lucky. It's closer to the truth that most mediocrity people run into the countless walls of reality and have to compromise with reality or keep walking and feeling limited and desperate.
But why not even try to do what you love because it's difficult, difficult, realistically impossible, and you have to sacrifice a lot? That's not the case. Knowing all these realities, but facing the reality that there are many people walking even with a sigh, you can start with a lighter mind.
Because doing what you love can also require a lot of patience. If you want to do something you love and want to achieve, you should start right now. But one thing you should know. This requires time of patience under the immeasurable weight. And since the period of perseverance varies greatly from person to person, there is no way to know when tangible results will appear or whether compensation will be given to me for choosing this path. Nevertheless, there must be an absolute and inevitable reason to go that route.
Finding a job you love is very easy once you know and answer below questions:
1. What kind of work makes my heart beat strongly?
2. What kind of work did you feel most like yourself?
3. What was the least excuse for making a mistake?
4. What gives you the clear feeling you get as if you drink coffee early in the morning in a drowsy state?
5. What kind of work did you make the whole world look beautiful as if you were in love?
6. What has comforted you in your long loneliness and pain?
7. Do you think something is worth doing even if it makes less money?
8. When you were doing something, did you not have to compare yourself to others at least for that job?
9. What have you been doing for a long time overcoming boredom?
10. What have you been doing without expecting compliments or rewards from others?
The answer to the question just above is exactly what you want and like. And you can start working on it right away. But I already know. The fact that you are still doing the work that answered the question above. All you need to do is have more courage, believe in yourself, and keep going that way without doubting your convictions.
I would like to compare a person running towards a dream to a horse. Horses have round, large eyes located on both edges of their faces, so they can see without moving their heads, with a very wide range of about 350 degrees. This makes it easy to see objects approaching from behind without having to turn your head. Conversely, these characteristics make them very easily distracted. Therefore, to train a horse as a racehorse, adjust the blindfold to focus in one direction.
The eye mask is to partially block the view from the back and sides by attaching a cup-shaped leather or rubber material to the back of both eyes of the mask. Therefore, even if another horse follows from behind or from the side, it has the effect of making it invisible so that it can only see the front without anxiety. Adjust the size of the cup attached to the eye mask according to the level of fear or anxiety expressed by the horse.
To do what you love, you have to attach something like a horse's blindfold and run. If possible, it is recommended to peek into other people's lives as often as possible and not lose their energy and envy. It is recommended that you focus only on yourself and build up your inner assets so that you can run on the road you want to run.
This will allow you to focus on running for quite some time, long distances.
Doing what you love is exciting. But it's easy to overlook the patience and pain that it entails. This is why it seems like we all started from the same starting line, but some keep running, some give up after running, and some don't even dare to start. It is better to recognize these difficulties from the start and run. Understanding the reality as it is and running hard at the risk of running without any reward.
I, too, have chosen what I love, and I continue to do it, and I continue to walk with discouragement, anxiety, and doubts. Sometimes the road is not visible at all. Apparently, I was on this road, so I walked, but as I walked, there was no road. There are even times when you bring a shovel and dig the soil yourself to make a path.
The blog is what always gives me strength, motivation, and energy in times like these. Once you have decided what you like, it is very helpful to open a blog right away and write it down little by little. It has the same effect as renewing the promises you made to yourself every day.
And you will feel that the world you are thinking and creating becomes more concrete and deeper. I want to share the joy of doing what I love, documenting the process, and growing day by day.
