The Importance of Doing What You Love

We all heard this question at one point or another in our childhood. “What do you want to be when you grow up? ” When asked the question, did you have an answer, or did you need a few minutes to think about it?

We all had dreams of becoming something great, like a fireman, a doctor, or an astronaut, just to name a few. Well, how did you do? Maybe you never aspired to be what you set out to be or said that you would become. But then again, things change. The older we get, our tastes change, our view of the world changes, even our goals change, or maybe our circumstance changes, and we are left with no alternative.

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned during my career path is to do something you love to do.  I worked in the legal field for at least a decade and I at the time, I didn’t question it, because it’s what I thought was expected of me.

Why is this important?

When your passion becomes your work, life becomes much more interesting and fun. You find yourself speaking passionately to others about your work. The experiences you have along the way become much more rewarding, and enrich your life in more ways than one.

I know people who have turned their favorite hobbies into small businesses and have succeeded. Sure, they may have had to sacrifice a steady paycheck for their happiness, but not one of them either turned back or gave up. Their passion carried them through to success.

While no job or business is perfect, the important thing is to enjoy it, learn from it. If you are unhappy in your current situation, why not take steps to change it? Somewhere out there is a job or business that is perfect for you. If you are already there, I applaud you. If not, realize that it may take some time to figure out what you really want to do, and even more, time to actually get there.

I can tell you from experience that finding and doing what you love is absolutely worth it, every step of the way. All of the research, training, and hands-on experience has made me a stronger, and a much happier person. Feeling in charge of my own destiny – well, there just is no greater feeling.

Do what you love, and love what you do, whatever that may be.

Love and light
