Success Thought of the Day – 6/1/18 (#successtotd)

 

Find out what you are good at without even trying…and then try.   – John Addison

The value of aligning your time and efforts with your passion and gifts are highly underestimated.  Time is not infinite, we cannot get it back – – and many of us have heard the phrase that no one lies on their death bed with regrets about wishing they had earned more money.  The regrets are typically relative to wishing they had spent more time with loved ones and chasing their passion.

Unfortunately, in our younger years, we often establish a belief that what we are passionate about and how we earn a living must be mutually exclusive.  Thus, many seek occupations based on expected income levels, which is totally understandable.  However, there are a few key counterpoints.

First and foremost, when you operate within your passion, there is a force multiplier.  Why?  Because your gifts are working for you – – your natural abilities come alive as you further invest in them.   Secondly, they endure over time, as it does not work, but a way of life.  When you are doing your life’s work, you are not working to get to “retirement” or get to a certain “place.”  You are “living in that place every day.”

Regardless of where you are in your career (you don’t have to replace your job, but don’t let go of your passion), integrate it into your day and watch the goodness that springs forth!
