Are you stuck in a job or career you hate? Is it sucking the life out of you?
Most people answer yes to both of these questions, and that is such a shame. This is no way to achieve any kind of inner peace.
Doing what you love will turn this completely around for you. If you have ever imagined doing something entirely different than what you currently do, try to imagine what your life would be like if you had a passion for your life’s work. You are much more likely to excel at what you are doing.
This is not to say that everything you do in your passion will be without problems. That is simply impossible. There are always going to be challenges and several of them may prove difficult at times. But it is also solving those challenges that help you reinforce your passion.
If you do anything long enough, even something you love, you run the risk of burning out. This is why you need to take breaks like vacations or join activities that are not directly related to your work. Consider hiring someone you can trust to run your operation, so you free up some of your time. By doing this, you can even choose to create other ventures or passions. Start a foundation to help others. This can reignite passion.
If you do get burned out, there’s nothing to stop you from selling your venture and moving on to something better. You can use the money from the sale to start up another passion you’ve been holding on the sidelines.
This doesn’t mean you should give up on something just because you have days where you are bored. No matter what you do, this is going to happen on occasion. It’s when it happens more often than not that you have to evaluate whether or not you are at the end of the road. Only you can truly decide, but it can help to talk to your spouse and friends when you feel like you are there.
If you dread going to work every day and have become apathetic towards your company or business, staying in that situation is going to make you miserable. You won’t enjoy life, and it will become a chore to go to work. Switching to something you have wanted to do will give you a sense of accomplishment and is the right step towards inner peace.
