Many of us spend 39, hours a week, or even more within the work. Some love their jobs, some hate it and some say blah blah, I need the money thats it.
My question is, do we have a choice ?How do we find our perfect job ? Or what do we love to do ? To follow our passion ?
Once we have found what our dream is, then what ? Is it like a miracle we suddenly start work ? We may need resarch, change jobs, ask professionals for help, reading books, listen to podcasts etc.
What do you think?
I had a conversation with my a close friend the other, they said they had worked for the firm for 20 years, they´re not happy. I asked him why work there, why not look for something else ? He said he tried several years ago, after he heard nothing back. He also told me, he had been doing extra studying, but he still didn´t get noticed, within his company.
So he gave up !
Is this the right thing to do ? Or what do you think ? Ask your boss? study ? Work in your spare time ? (If your spare time is limited, because of family, like my friend. He has 2 children, he said I don´t have spare time !) I said even if its one hour a day, get up early thats still 30 hours a month.
I asked many people, the same question, (Why is it important to follow your dreams?) One of them said “For 7 years I worked in admin, dreaming of being a musician, listening to podcasts, playing the guitar every night.”
Then 2 years ago she went crazy, thinking to herself I have to do something ( The work drove her mad etc.) She started recording music and adding it to spotify etc. After 2 years, she was lucky, and much happier, she sang when I saw her ” No more admin any more.”
Whether you love admin, love to play the guitar, a partner to love, a dream house, to travel or what ever it is, take a few minutes and think what do you what ?
We work on avereage 39 hours a week, and if we have 3 weeks off is 1,911 hours a year. Some say its not possible, no one I know follows their dreams.
As my firend says, “Every where we look are peoples dreams” When we watch films, series, social media, ( from the actors to the bloggers) or see the buildings outside, the table, the computer in the living room, etc. ( people´s dreams to create these things)
Many of those things, started as someones dream.
Above is a little video, about following your dreams.
How do you know what your passion is ?
Some one told me once, do what makes you happy ? I said I have no idea, so I tried many things, and I thought I definetly know what I didn´t make me happy, then one day. I started to design, and create things I felt alive inside (My interpretation is to do what makes you feel alive inside.) So I designed and adesigned, and created these these shoe designs.
This is some of my designs below I hope you like them.
I was searching one day, and came across this Ted talk, I love it, I hope you like it too.
I love Paolo Coehlo: He talks about your personal legend !
Some positive words from Oprah.
