What do you want to be when you grow up?
I am sure you have been asked this question at least once when you were younger.
When you were asked the question, did you have an answer ready, or did you need a few minutes to think about it?
We all had dreams of becoming something, something great, like a fireman, a teacher, or a rock star, just to name a few.
Well, how did you do?
Perhaps you never aspired to be what you set out to be or said that you would become. But then again, things change.
The older we get, our tastes change, our view of the world changes, and even our goals change.
We forget how to dream and lose that sense of possibility and ‘What if…?’
One of the most important lessons I have learned during my career is to do something you love.
Why is this important?
I feel that if you enjoy what you make a living at, you end up being happy in many ways.
Life itself becomes much more interesting and fun.
You find yourself speaking passionately to others about your work. The experiences you have along the way become much more rewarding and enrich your life in many ways.
Whilst coaching I have met so many fascinating people.
I still ask this question quite often.
What did you want to be when you were younger?
What do you want to be now?
I have coached people who have successfully turned their favorite hobbies into small businesses. Sure, they may have had to sacrifice a steady salary for their happiness, but not one of them either turned back or gave up.
Their passion carried them through to success.
While no job or business is perfect, it is important to enjoy and learn from it.
Do you enjoy what you do?
If you are unhappy in your current situation, why not take steps now to change it?
Somewhere out there is a job or business that is perfect for you.
A place where you will discover your purpose.
If you are already there, congratulations, I applaud you.
If not, realize that it may take some time to figure out what you want to do, and even more, time to get there.
Change takes time and that is OK.
I can tell you from experience that finding and doing what you love is worth it, every step of the way.
During my career in Automotive, all the research, training, and hands-on experience have made me a stronger, happier person.
Feeling in charge of my destiny…well, there is just no greater feeling.
Do what you love, and love what you do, whatever that may be.
You will be happier about it, trust me.
I promise you will never look back.
