Are you putting your life on standby?

This inspirational piece starts with explaining what the difference between a job and a vocation is.  The difference between having a job and a vocation is that a job is some unpleasant work you do in order to make money, with the sole purpose of making money. It’s an absurd construct that many of us are guilty of, because if money becomes the goal it progressively deludes us to think we have found happiness.

Why spend the prime of your life, valuable years, doing something that you do not like, that you don’t take pleasure from it, it all seems so futile. Then why do we get stuck doing something we do not like for so many hours of our days? Try sitting a kid down and force him to do what he doesn’t like, yes you are right he’ll sit there looking insanely offended and before you know it he’s off doing something he likes.

Worse of all the sad outcome of putting off things we enjoy in life leads us to finding release in things like alcohol, cigarettes or even drugs vacuous attempts at replacing feelings of happiness.

This is no way to live, this is a life sentence and we are doing it to ourselves by putting things off everyday. Life’s too short! Find what you love and do more of it. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be satisfied and happy is to do what you believe is great work and to do great work you must love what you do.  Because when you are doing something you love, you do it well actually you want to do it well.

If at the moment you find yourself at the cross roads of having to make a decision what to choose to do for a living or have been rendered redundant, take time to find what you love to do. Don’t settle for any less or you have to face a life of unhappiness. Now sit back and listen to this inspirational video:
