Do you believe in work as passionate play? Have you ever considered this to be possible? Where would you identify yourself on a career satisfaction scale?
Career passion is rare, not because it doesn’t exist, but because people do not believe in it. We have been raised in a society that believes work should be hard. Swallow the pill and deal with it because at the end of the day it’s putting food on the table.
Many people are of the opinion that it would be crazy and ridiculous to follow your dreams.
What if I told you that to not pursue your passion and dreams is crazy! Think about it, you spend approximately 8 – 9 hours a day doing something that you dislike, or leaves you bored or wishing for Friday, day in and day out (THAT’S CRAZY!). And, before you know it, the weekend is already over. Then you’re dragging your feet again to work on Monday. Brutal.
I recently read an article that had me thinking, why are people so afraid to acknowledge their passions? Why are others quick to tell you to forget about your dreams, that it’s ridiculous?
It’s their fear talking.
If you never pursue your dreams, it’s hard to see someone else succeed following their passion. It’s a stab in the heart or gut. A reminder of what you gave up for a dud job that is probably representative of your less than fulfilling life.
You might have heard from others that following your passion is risky.
Yes, maybe it is.
But, probably not ask risky as the potential effects living a life that is unfulfilling might have on your mental health.
When I started standing for what I believed in and embracing my dreams and ambitions; I surprisingly enough started feeling much better about myself. Happier, healthier, ALIVE.
It wasn’t always easy. It still isn’t. It would be crazy to think that it’s easy to live against societal expectations.
It’s always more comfortable (for some time) to follow the crowd than to step into your purpose in this life. You feel alone because no one in your group of friends is seriously considering this type of career shift. But you have a choice.
Live a life where you make choices that make you feel alive or, choose to be a drone.
