“Do what you love and you will never work a day in your life.”
Does this quote sound familiar to you? Have you been haunted by this saying since you entered the workforce, not quite sure what it means? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.
Forbes said it best: “This saying underlines the importance of pursuing your passion, but it may also be misleading to the literal-minded. Doing what you love doesn’t mean you’ll literally work less. Quite the opposite — through loving your field, you’ll naturally want to work more than anyone else. The difference lies in the fact that, when you’re doing what you love, you can avoid a sense of monotony.”
We broke the importance of passion for franchise owners, as it truly is one of the most pivotal characteristics a franchisee can have. Here’s how fervor for your career can impact your life as a franchisee...
- -As Forbes mentioned, having passion for what you are doing and the work you are doing can actually make you have the drive to work more than the average person, solely because you are enjoying it that much.
- -You may feel a fire inside of you that you never felt previously to follow your passions, which manifests into a revitalized sense of energy around your work days. Gone are times of begrudgingly shutting off your alarm for some franchise owners. If you truly love what you do, you are looking forward to it day in and day out.
- -When it comes to your career, it’s important to know that you will always have ups and downs, as it’s part of life. The difference between surviving those seasons and coming out with your shoulders back and head held high is having the passion, drive and fervor to persevere. When you become a franchise owner, you have to keep your goals at the forefront of your mind, always ensuring that you are doing everything in your power to accomplish them. We often see people using the fire inside of them that stems from their love for their career to push forward even during the toughest times, trusting both the franchise model they invested in and themselves to come out of it stronger than ever.
- -Quality of life, both inside and outside of your franchise may improve. When you truly love what you do and feel as though your career has a purpose, you may find yourself feeling more fulfilled in all aspects of your life. You spend a lot of time at work to hate what you are doing and undoubtedly that negativity will start to spill into your personal life as well. Love what you are doing and you may find that your overall happiness greatly improves.
At the end of the day, your time is valuable and it is of the utmost importance that you feel you are spending your time wisely. You should feel like you are spending your time doing things that will fulfill your life long term, rather than give you burnout in a short period of time.
Think long and hard about your career. Is it something that you truly love? Do you enjoy clocking into work? Does it fulfill your goals, both personally and professionally?
