What to do to have a successful and fulfilling life?
6. Do what you enjoy and love
It’s tough to enjoy life if you do what you hate so you can pay your bills.
We need to be aware that a large part of our lives are in a position where we work to have our lifestyle. That we have money to eat, an apartment to live in, for electricity, heating, a car, relaxing time …
To work in an environment or have a job that we hate that’s not even close to good. It is filling up our heads all the time and exposing our bodies to the negative. And that’s too much. We need to be aware that we will spend at least double amount of time to get rid of all the negatives than the time we spent in it. So 1 hour in work, at least 2 hours to clean our heads.
Given that we usually spend more than 1/3 of the day working, it is almost impossible to eliminate all the negative effects. Day has just 24 hours, and we need to sleep too.
It was the same for me. I didn’t completely hate my job, but I didn’t feel good about it anymore. So I decided to do what I really enjoy—writing for you. I don’t work anymore now, but I’m in a hobby all the time. For me now, it’s no problem to do this “hobby” 🙂 thing for 12 or 15 hours a day. I just enjoy it, and I have no problem doing something more needed to keep the matter going. As always, the rule 20:80 applies here too. 20% of the things are harder to do, and you don’t like them, but no problem. 80% of things fill my head and body with positive.
What to do if you are not in such a good environment? Examine your life and think about what you enjoy and what makes you feel extra good. You are probably the best at that if you have already done it or are doing it. If you haven’t done it yet, explore the internet (youtube, blogs, join Facebook groups with your topic, find online seminars …), and learn how to get started or how to get better.
For example, last week, I invested a lot of time in learning a book design program. In one week, I learned to use the program like a real master through youtube and one online seminar for $ 25, and now I can design my books by myself :). Isn’t that cool? In one week, you gain valuable knowledge that you can immediately use to make money.
Kick yourself in the ass and starts walking towards your destination.
Make your future be more joyful and satisfying.
Everything is in YOUR hands.
