I recently had the pleasure of sharing with his family, the happiness of a friend who was hired for the job of his dreams, after a long job search. This job will utilize his training and past experience, and it will not only be as easy as pie for him, but will stretch and challenge him as an individual.
I also heard about another individual who will be starting his dream job soon. He has managed to take two important aspects of his life and experiences that he really loves and combine them into a new unique position which capitalizes on his personal strengths. He is excited about this new opportunity and he feels like he’s won the lottery.
Have you ever felt that you were working at the perfect job for you? Have you ever felt that life was wonderful and everything was falling into place without any effort on your part? Have you ever felt that you had the ‘Midas touch’ at work?
If you have felt that way, you are blessed indeed. If you haven’t, why not?
Maybe it is time to look at your life and your job. If you are not happy doing what you’re doing, why are you still doing it? What excuses are you mouthing? Why are you resigned to a life of unhappiness?
A large majority of your adult life will be spent on the job. Wouldn’t it make more sense to do something that not only challenges you, but fulfills your deepest desires? Wouldn’t you rather do work that makes a difference, not only to you, but to others as well?
I can tell you from experience, when you are working in your dream job, it isn’t work anymore...you feel like you’re getting paid to play. That’s the way it should always be. Is that how it is for you?
