How many times have you heard the saying “Do what you love and you won’t work a day in your life”? It seems like one of those cheesy old sayings that most people roll their eyes at, because who can possibly feel like they aren’t working when that’s what we do for a minimum of 9 hours a day? It seems crazy to think that there are people out there who are enjoying their jobs so much, it doesn’t feel like work, right?!
While it may seem like a far-fetched idea to love your job, it is entirely possible. Sure, you may not feel strongly about the job you’re in now, but we are firm believers in the idea that you should at least feel passionate about the work you are doing or the industry you are in.
It’s also important to note that just because your current job doesn’t light a spark in you doesn’t mean that you will never find that in a job. You simply have to find what brings you the most joy and satisfaction day in and day out, and chase that dream unapologetically. You should feel fulfilled at the end of even the longest days because you are truly showing up to work with a grateful heart that you are able to do something you believe in and that fills your cup.
Here are three reasons why loving your job is not overrated and why it can actually enrich your life.
1. You will feel more ‘complete’ in every aspect of your life. If you have the most peaceful and ideal home life but a chaotic work life, you may start to feel like your cup is half empty rather than half full. Perhaps the missing piece of the puzzle towards complete and utter happiness is your job. If you are dreading clocking in or perhaps looking forward to the end of the day a bit too much, we suggest looking into other industries or jobs that may bring you more joy and fulfillment in life.
2. You will have a pep in your step at work, and in turn may end up being more productive during your work day. A sure way to slow someone down in the workplace is to give him or her a task that he or she does not enjoy and wants no part of. When you feel passionate about what you are doing and the work you are putting in, you will feel more motivated to not only do your work, but to do it well and with a purpose. Your motivation is directly related to and impacted by your viewpoint on your job and whether or not you feel like you are making a difference. We suggest finding a job that gets you excited about even the menial tasks!
3. When you are doing something that you love with your time, you may end up pushing yourself in ways that were not previously possible. If you feel like you’re stuck in your current job, think about all of the possibilities that could lie ahead for you if you find something that you truly love. Not only will the restraints you feel from your current role be lifted, but you won’t have a cap on the potential success that you can achieve. Loving your job gives you the ability to tackle each and every day with a newfound appreciation for your life, your career, and the ability to push yourself towards success. While we cannot guarantee that you will be the next Bill Gates, you may just end up being far more successful than you ever thought possible—all because you followed your heart and it led you towards the career of your dreams.
Sure, that age-old phrase “Do what you love and you won’t work a day in your life” may make some eyes roll along the way, but the sentiment remains strong and true. We firmly believe that you deserve to clock into a role that ignites a fire within you and pushes you to be the best version of yourself, rather than ties you down to a metaphorical desk.
