Correction: Everyone wants to work. Nobody wants to do unfulfilling work. It all comes down to the choices you make.
Many people will pick a major in college and pursue a career path, only to find that they are unhappy and unfulfilled. Are you doing unfulfilling work? Are you bored with your current job or career? Or are you fired up every morning to learn, conquer new objectives and kick ass?
Many people think they don’t want to work, but the reality is that they don’t want to do unfulfilling work. They don’t want to work a meaningless job just to “pay the bills” or to “get by”. This is the worst feeling a person could have if this is your reality.
We often think, “I’m just doing this until…” Until I save some money. Until I move up the ladder in my career. Until I start my own business so I can quit my job.
Most people have these thoughts if they don’t currently like what they are doing. They want a way out, but don’t know what that is. So, they have delusions of a better tomorrow, but that better tomorrow never comes. That is until you make a change today!
The reality is that we have more opportunities now than ever before. We have greater resources and opportunity than any generation that ever lived.
The question is what to do when you want to quit your job.
The choice is yours. You can work a meaningless job, making other people rich, or you can be a leader and take a shot at doing what you really want to do.
We all have to make a living, but you must do fulfilling work to be happy and fulfilled. We also want to feel useful, to feel accomplished, and that we are actually making a difference in the lives of others by adding value.
Even if you currently feel stuck in a job you don’t like, you can still do meaningful work.
Create a clear vision of what you want to do and how you want to shape your life. Make time by committing to this vision with the use of compelling reasons why you want to make these changes, and then create a plan and most importantly take action!
Do a little every day. Lay one brick at a time, and before you know it, you will have built an incredible castle and you will be living your dream.
If you stay committed to your goals and have a big enough why, you really can accomplish anything you want. And most importantly, you can leave that boring life behind as you begin your new life of abundance and fulfillment.
