I call ‘’Do what you love’’ bullsh*t. Sorry if that’s not your belief or if that hurts your feeling but let me tell you my thoughts on it for a minute.
All your life, the system put in your mind to be ‘’happy’’ you need to find a work, a career you love. But, even if you are convinced about your choice, how many of you wait for the weekend, wait for your vacations to escape that reality you are supposed to love… I’m sorry, I’m not calling that love either life. All that time you ask yourself the wrong question… instead of ‘’What do I want to do?’’, you should ask ‘’How do I want to live my life?’’ and then make a choice regarding of the results you want. I don’t think if I’d ask you this question your answer would be ‘’Well, I want to work 40 hrs or more exchanging my time for a paycheck, trading time for myself or with my family, for time with coworkers I didn’t choose while building someone else’s dream.’’
It’s like when you ask Google map to find the best itinerary to reach a certain destination. First, you need to figure out where you want to go, then you put your current position, and after those decisions Google calculates the best route depending if you want to take highways or backcountry roads, if there is construction, traffic, detours. It’s the same with your life. You should choose your lifestyle and then choose the right vehicle to get there. Sure, you’ll have to make sacrifices, to choose your associations, and to take some detours, but at the end it will be so worth it. .
And once you’re down the road, I know you’ll have uncomfortable moments in addition to moments of doubt. It’s totally normal, keep going, push until it becomes comfortable or until your doubts disappear because it’s where greatness happens. And, let me tell you, if you’re not where you want to be, it’s never too late to reset your GPS.
Don’t let your past, your current situation, or your environment define you and where you should be. Don’t shut your dreams and don’t settle for average. at Chilliwack, British Columbia
