Certain philosophical people believe that working a job shouldn't be all about the money. Of course, most people would disagree because they need to work to pay their living expenses. In fact, a lot of people in this world must work over 40 hours a week just to barely survive. If you work long hours each week, whether it's for money or not, at least make sure you love what you're doing.
When you enjoy your work, you don't feel bored or tired. Instead, you feel energized and excited to keep working. There may be days when you feel too lazy to work but most of the time, you'll want to work. The idea of getting out of bed in the morning will not seem so painful anymore. You'll no longer feel tempted to play Fantasy Football or browse on Facebook. When you get to this point, you'll know that you found the right job for yourself.
The big question is, how do you find something that you're interested in and make a job out of it? Below are some ideas to help you get started:
1. What do you do well?
Can you think of something that you're good at? Something you do better than most people? Perhaps you're great at socializing with random people. If so, consider being a salesperson. Maybe you like cooking exotic foods and trying out new recipes. In this case, become a chef or food blogger.
2. What do you dislike about the job you're at now?
It's possible to love your profession but hate your job. For instance, if you have a nasty boss who's unfair and hovers over you all day, then it might cause you to dislike your job a lot. However, that doesn't mean you hate the work that you do. So, think about starting your own business while doing this same kind of work in it. That way, you can be your own boss and set your own rules.
3. Try new things.
It's okay to think and contemplate your future, but don't spend all your time doing that. Expand your horizons by taking up new hobbies or pursuing new things that you never thought you liked before. You might develop a hobby that'll turn into a business. If there's a course at your college that looks interesting, go ahead and apply for it even if it doesn't feel like "you". You may just surprise yourself.
4. Gather knowledge.
If you're interested in developing a new hobby, you need to learn everything you can about that hobby. Don't just aimlessly pursue it without knowing what you're doing. For instance, don't become a trader on the stock market simply because you're hoping to score some big trades and make a lot of money. You actually need to know about things like historical data, market trends, and company research. This will allow you to know which stocks are safe and which stocks are risky.
In conclusion, be prepared to work hard at whatever job you do. The idea is to simply enjoy yourself as you're working hard because that will make the experience more pleasant. In fact, if you really enjoy what you're doing, your "work" won't seem like work anymore, it'll be just another form of play to you.
Here's a great quote for you to ponder today. It comes from Wallace D. Wattles' Wealth Science Course. In it, Mr. Wattles wrote:
"Perhaps the most essential part of wealth-culture consists in finding the place where you will be happy in your work."
