There is an old saying which suggests that if you do enjoy the job that you have, then you will “never work a day in your life.” That saying is true, to an extent. Even the best jobs have days where you don’t feel like going to work – perhaps you’re stressed because of something else, or there are challenges at the company you work for. However, if you are invested in your job, then you will find that you are more motivated to go to work – regardless of the circumstances.
How can you find what drives you? Well, some would say that you should turn your hobbies into a job. Sometimes that can work – but it doesn’t always work out because it turns fun into responsibility.
It is better to find something you are passionate about. If you care about the environment, look for a job involving green energy, conservation, or recycling. If you care about old people, find a job that helps combat isolation and improve older people’s independent living. If you love children, but don’t want to be a teacher, looking for a therapist job as a health visitor or care worker so you can work with lots of children in smaller groups.
There are many options for finding a job that includes elements that drive you and keep you passionate. If you like staying fit, use those skills to help others get fit. Just make sure that you have something that you can do to help you unwind when you need to so that you don’t mentally burn out and sour yourself on something that was once a passion. You need to find a way to help yourself relax and unwind so that you don’t lose interest in what you love.
