I’m going to get real with you for a minute. Are you happy? Do you wake up every morning excited to start your day? Does your career fulfill you and make you feel appreciated? If not then quit your job and find something you do love.
While that might sound harsh and direct, that is the point. Too many people are stuck in a rut and they don’t think there is a way out. They coast through life unhappy and work a job they hate until the end. Not to sound morbid, but we are all going to die someday. The end comes.
Do you want to go out doing something you love and have a happy life, or do you want to have lived a life that brought you no joy? Let me dive a little deeper into this.
You have to have full belief in your capabilities in order to jump.
The reason most people stay in a job they hate is because of fear. They fear that they won’t find another job. They fear that they won’t be good at something else. These are all just excuses that keep them from happiness.
You have to have confidence in yourself. Ever notice how the same people seem to always find success and are good at everything they do? They are no different from you aside from the part that they are very confident. It’s a mind game. They don’t think they can lose so it’s mind over matter and they let that positive mindset guide them.
Fear is never an option, nor is failure. They have a winning mentality for everything, which is why they always win.
Understand that you deserve to do what you love.
There is nothing stopping you from starting a business based around a hobby or interest that you love. Nothing. With the right attitude and mindset you can accomplish anything and once you realize that you become an unstoppable force.
Don’t think for one second that you don’t deserve happiness and to find your true calling. You can create a job or business around anything you are truly passionate about. For instance, the founder of AT IT Translation decided to start his business because of his love of language and translating brought him a great deal of personal satisfaction.
Also, you might not figure it all out the first time. It might take a few attempts, but once you do figure out what you are happy doing it will make your life that much more enjoyable and fulfilling.
Sit back and think for a minute. If you are not happy with your life at this moment then why not make a change? Why not fix it and be able to wake up every day thrilled to do what you do?
You can do it, and believing that is the only thing that is stopping you and getting in the way of complete happiness. I’ve been there myself. It took finally just saying, “Screw it, I’m making a change right now” to take the leap personally. I encourage you to do the same if you are not 100% happy right now.
