All our life we have been told by all our parents to work hard. We need to work hard to get straight A’s. Then work hard to get into the best university. Then even in our work life, we must work hard to reach the top, though we might hate all of it. Our society puts so much pressure on toil that we forget what we want to do. All those achievement stories we read about and see in every portal will show you that there one common element in each and everyone’s life. That is that they do what they love. Then they work on that, whether they get paid for it or not. That is where the real success lies.
We will see many cases where people are working hard but not getting the reward they want. Their life is miserable. But we rarely hear about those tales. Joe De Sena is a bestselling author and the CEO and founder of Spartan as well, that hosts intense obstacle course races all over the world. He is living his best life not just because he worked hard, but by making his own company. He used to work as a pool cleaner since his childhood. Though he became proficient, he hated it. So he left the life as a pool cleaner and started made a life of his own.
We often think of the steady paychecks we receive and all the uncertainties we will face. Thus keep living the same old miserable life. There are some ways to get out of it.
Instead of focusing on reasons why you shouldn’t leave, start finding excuses to pursue your dream The career you are leaving will always be there, but not the time to live your dream is not. Then take time to make it happen. Stay with people who can mentor you and support you. Just start with a slow pace, and keep your patience in this marathon
