I hope to inspire you and I promise to deliver value through this short yet important piece of post but let me be straight and tell you that if you’re happy out there doing what you truly love and if you’re fulfilled from within and if you feel a deep sense of satisfaction within your heart, this post is NOT for you my friend. And if you’re unhappy and unsatisfied with your current levels of living and if you’re one of those people who’s still in search for a higher meaning in life, I’m happy to tell you that you’re at a very right place reading what you should be reading. In this post, I share with you 5 reasons why you should do what you love. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
First of all, let me ask you a simple question – have you ever experienced doing a job and ended up feeling unsatisfied? I’m sure you’ve experienced that feeling of unfulfillment at least once in your life. Here’s why you get that feeling – because deep down within your heart, you know you’re not meant to be doing that job. Makes complete sense doesn’t it?
I’m sure you’ve surely heard of MANY people who have tons of money but aren’t really satisfied by their job. There are people who make tons of money every day but their heart seems to be never fulfilled.
To me, it makes ZERO sense to do what you DON’T love. Sadly, SO many people spend their whole lives getting engaged in doing a job that makes zero sense. For some, they do it because their job pays most of their bills. And it’s a nice way to live your life – working on a job that pays most your bills. But it’s the worst way to END your life doing that job [big point here]. What I mean is simply this: At the end of your life, during your last breathes, the only thing that’s going to hurt you more than anything else is the potential you left unexpressed. You here reading this tells me that you’re not going to be one of those mediocres who spend their lives amid ordinary. Which brings me to the first reason:
#1. You should do what you love because that’s where your greatness belongs.
Think of Einstein or Mandela or Bill Gates or Jobs or Picasso or Michelangelo or Gaga or Kanye. What made them great? They didn’t have any magical spells that made them great. They had this one thing that they all share in common which made them great: they simply devoted themselves in doing what they truly loved.
I really wonder sometimes what if Einstein was given a football to play in a field or what if Gaga was supposed to work at apple or what if Ronaldo or Messi were supposed to work at a science lab. They would simply fail. Because they are just not meant to do those jobs. There’s only one way to be great and that is to recognize your natural gifts and innate talents. Self-awareness is the starting point of success. I hope now you get that doing what you love is the only way to be great.
#2. You should do what you love because your job won’t be just a job but something more than fun and an exciting art.
Your work really seems to be something more than just a job when you do what you love. Messi never gets bored playing football. Picasso never got bored painting. I never get bored writing. Ever noticed the fire in your mood after doing what you love?
#3. You should do what you love because that’s what the world needs the most from you.
As you try to be the best among others, please don’t forget that you’re simply an artist and a gifted genius here to create history and leave your impact. I strongly believe that each and everyone of us is here to serve and inspire others in our own unique way. And that only way to leave a unique impact in the world behind is to do what you love.
#4. You should do what you love so you can be an IMPACTIONER.
Recently I’ve been playing a lot with this word ‘Impactioner’ on my instagram (@5amimpact). If there was one word to truly describe you, it would be: Impactioner – a person who leaves a unique positive impact behind for the next generations. Yes you can be as great as Mandela or Picasso or Mahatma Gandhi. You’re as uniquely gifted as them. You’re here simply to be great, create history and leave an impact. And the only way to live a life that sets an example to others is to develop intimacy with your craft – with what you love.
#5. You should do what you love to take care of your inner wellness.
To me, inner-wellness matters more than success. I’ll do a job that fills me with serious satisfaction and gives me incredible inner-peace. That’s more important to me than money. As I mentioned above, there are SO many people who make tons of money every day but at the end of the day, their hearts are left hollow with no sense of satisfaction.
To me, inner-wellness = personal peace + self-satisfaction + sense of fulfillment + sense of purpose. It really breaks my heart when I see someone waking up everyday without a sense of purpose and fire. No doubt, doing what you love fills you with extreme levels of joy and happiness.
Please Do Me One Favour!
I really hope that you take this post as your reminder. Please do me – and yourself – a favour and take time to rethink your life till today and simply ask yourself – have you lived your life to the fullest doing what you seriously love or just survived it. Be completely honest with yourself because it’s only going to benefit you. If you feel dissatisfied and unfulfilled, please realize that it’s time to become more self-aware. Please know your natural gifts and innate talents. Read my blog ‘What I Wish You Knew About Your Genius’ if you still doubt your inner artist.
You’ve got this one life to life. Make sure not to make it regretful. Be brave. Take one big decision that’ll completely shift your life to another dimension. It’s time. To step up for greatness. I deeply believe in you. I’m here with you to help and encourage you. You got this.
Love you a lot. Talk to you soon. Bye.
