Some people are lucky to have their dream careers. Others are still searching for their dream jobs. Having a rewarding career and doing what you love can add to your life. It can contribute to a richer, more meaningful life.
Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life. ~Confucius
If you want to find a meaningful job, you have to clarify your values and have a greater understanding of yourself. Why? We are bombarded with mixed messages in our culture. We define ourselves by how much money we make, the status of our work, the kind of car we drive or the kind of house we live in. However, when we define ourselves based on our spiritual values, we are a lot more than what we do and what we can afford to buy.
Most people want their work to be more than a way to earn a living. What would make you truly happy? What kind of work would give your life more meaning? Listen to your heart. Listen to your longings. You can get some insights from the common threads that bind your interests and longings. Your spirit speaks through what calls to you and what you love to do.
Your work is to discover your work and then, with all your heart, to give yourself to it. ~Buddha
Finding meaningful work and doing work you love will not be quick and easy. You can explore jobs that involve activities you’re passionate about. In the process, you are more likely to enjoy your work. More importantly, you are more likely to uncover your purpose in life or you can let your purpose find you.
Most people long to make a difference in the lives of others. They find meaning in jobs that can contribute to society.
It can be a challenge to find meaningful work, but the payoff can be huge. Doing work you love is one of the best ways to bring more happiness into your life.
