In my previous blog I told you that how working on a job that you dislike, will spoil your life. Please read out my previous blog ‘Dedicated to all Job Haters;):)’ before reading this one out. I have been stressing on adopting your passion as your job. But the question is, how you can do that? I am gonna answer you, but the answer will differ for each person, since the scenario with everyone is different. I will try my best. And please take a note that this blog is only for those people who dislike or hate the work they do and not for someone who loves to do his job but just want to leave because of workplace pressure or boss bullying or so on. Get the thin line of difference between both, because the answers to both the problems are really different. Today, the blog is for those who hate their job but even doesn’t know what their passion is (Also my personal experience on this, since I was the one in this very category). Are you direction-less just like them?
Firstly, you should know what you love doing and should be really passionate about the stuff. If you know it, very well! But if you don’t know then it is the most difficult part. Do not leave your job unless you find out your own passion, I mean that is the basis. You have to follow your office regime and give yourself a lot of ‘me time’. You have to do a lot of self thinking, knowing your likes and dislikes, your capabilities and so on. Do not even directly go to some career counselor. You must first think of what you really love because career counselor may tell you something which is a lot dependent on your already tried and tested abilities, and not what you love and your capabilities. If you think that it is really becoming hectic, then take a break from work, go to some relaxing place and do some introspection, it is the best time you can invest in yourself.
You will get it, believe me. Go back in your life think of what made you happy, what you think you are best at and that one thing that gives you not only happiness but makes you feel proud and confident too. And even still, if you are experiencing void, then take help of your friends and families. And then still if no 🙁 then you can go to a career counselor, at least he will put some choices in front of you, but that will start a try and test game. If you want to live your life happily you need to take this hard path and invest in yourself.
I know how difficult it is for directionless people to decide on their career, because I was the one amongst them too. In fact, I think I was the worst case 😉 I did computers in High School, Electronics Engineering in Graduation, Worked for a software company, left the job after finding I hate it and joined a 2 year MBA post-graduation course in Human Resources, only to find out that I am even not interested in it. Then I tried Entrepreneurship having my own online fashion store which I sort of really love even today. In fact we all love when we have something of our own, howsoever small it is.
Due to lack of resources and as I didn’t wanted to invest a lot, I wrote myself all the content on the website even the descriptions of my clothes in such a way so that it would catch the customer’s attention. It was then, that I realised, what I am really passionate about, is writing. It was a bling and I went back in flashback where I remembered that writing was always what i loved even from school days. I really loved to write long essays and I would be delighted if the topic was what I haven’t learned because that gave me a whole lot of freedom to induce my creativeness into it. It was always there! I loved to write speeches, hosting scripts and I love reading too in fact I am crazy about novels and often used to think if i ever can write one too. I was always good in english and had my hands on grammar and spellings. These all realisations, although it came very late, but lead me to choose my final career which is also my passion. I am a writer now doing freelancing for many clients. Although, I worked hard for building my portfolio first and being really active in social media, having 2 of my own blogs and many such things which showcased my abilities to write. And after this, it was very easy for me to get work and today I earn good.
Let us end here and I will have the rest covered in my next blogs for you already must have got tired listening my personal story ;):) So people, just don’t let go, if you don’t know what you would really love to do, try try till you succeed. There is certain kind of fun and excitement even in adopting hard paths! If you want to lead a happy life and the one which you will never regret and be proud, search within yourselves for that fire and passion with all your best, and you will get a sweet fruity result for sure! ;):) Take care and keep following my blogs as next one will be a very important one.
