Work With Purpose
Work with purpose
The struggle is real... How am I supposed to know if I'm going down the right path? Is my work meaningful? Does it get me out of bed in the morning?
We all have these thoughts. We go through stages of life where we are finding ourselves and figuring out what the heck we were put on this earth to do.
Times have changed drastically. Before the goal was - go to college, get a good paying job, prepare for your retirement, and boom thats life.
I disagree with that model entirely and I also have strong opinions on people who say following your passion is wrong.
I have said this before, I know some think it's morbid, however I think it is a very important question. If you died tomorrow would be happy with yourself? Would you be okay knowing you never made the leap of faith, you kept collecting a consistent paycheck because that was "responsible"? You never did what truly made you happy.
While I know many people have bills to pay, and mouths to feed, could you be doing all of that while doing what you love?
It wouldn't be easy, but it's been done. What is stopping you?
There are plenty of people making millions doing what YOU are passionate about, why can't you?
While there are many arguments, hoops to jump through, and excuses to be made, I think it's worth a shot. No one on their death bed wishes they worked more. Check out The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.
This book is one small piece of the last year of my life. I think it could inspire people to see life in a different light.
Working for other people just to work makes getting out of bed tough. I dare you to go after something that has purpose to you. I dare you to -
Work With Purpose.
