It is said if you are able to discover your passion and make it a (profitable and sustainable) pursuit that you will never work a day in your life. Take the time out to disconnect from the external noise that projects how you should live your life. Stop listening to outsiders who sell you what you should want or need to be successful, and get to know who you are and what really makes you tick.
Now more than ever, in order to keep the spirit of innovation and passion alive in our work lives, it is best to find meaningful work that aligns with our personal values. When we follow a path that is aligned with the values we hold in our heart, the burden and stress of keeping up appearances or forcing ourselves to fit into a mold begin to subside.
Remember, if we wear a mask for too long, one day it might not come off and it becomes our face, our values, and our way of life.
The people we surround ourselves with, the things we spend the most time on, it is these things which affect or POV or point-of-view on the world around us. Too much time spend on our external world, and neglect of our inner world leads to spiritual, physical, and energetic symptoms of dis-ease.
Creating value in our lives on the daily, making a point to give to others and accept from others with joy, and to take away the positive life lessons from daily life will sustain and nurture us. Disconnect occasionally from the rat race, rushing, and making vain attempts to please outside sources. Learn who you are, what you want, and how you can be of service to others. Whether at work, engaging in volunteering, or at play, we can find an outlet to make a moment in our life that enriches our life and others’ lives for the better.
Each day, live with mindful purpose, and great things will happen eventually.
