5 Tips for Finding Work You Will Love

5 Tips for Finding Work You Will Love

It may take quite a time to find what you really want to do to earn a living, but it’s worth it.

Some people go to work just for a salary. They separate work and private life, and it is okey if that works fine for them.

Others, however, cannot but work on something that fulfills them. They search for meaning in everything and do only those things that allow them to use their education, skills, experience and, most importantly, talents.

The desire to thrive in life, whether in personal relationships or at work, deserves respect. And it’s possible to thrive at work if you do something that not only makes sense and rewards your efforts but also makes you happy. I fully agree with Brian Tracy who believes that “happiness comes when you believe in what you are doing, know what you are doing, and love what you are doing.”

In fact, we spend the third of our life at work, so you’d better love what you devote so much of your time to. Here’s what I’d suggest to everyone who is in search for a purposeful, and joyful, job:

  1. Choose a job with a special purpose for you, not for anyone else.
  2. Let your talents drive your choice.
  3. Identify what you are good at and rely on your strengths.
  4. Apply diverse skills and experiences to your job to do things differently from your colleagues or competitors.
  5. Make happiness your priority.

If you feel that you haven’t found the right place yet, keep on searching for it. As Steve Jobs once said:

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”

And trust me, you will know when you find something really worthy that satisfies your needs, inspires you to achieve your goals and cherishes your soul.
