Love is more than just good song lyrics or flowery window dressing in life. It’s the big kahuna, the central purpose, the main goal we all should have. You’ve got to let love be the central focus in your life: your relationships, your family, and the work that you do.
Why, then, do so many people end up in a job they hate? Think about it for a moment. Where is love in this list of reasons to keep working your pathetic job?
- I need to keep busy.
- I need to pay the bills.
- I need to get out of the house.
- I need to stay connected with people.
- I need to climb the corporate ladder.
- I need to find self-worth.
- I need to work with others.
- I need to believe in something other than myself.
The list can go on and on. I offer you this:
Life is full of choices, so choose what you love first. The rest falls into place. [Tweet this]
Here’s what’s missing the list above, and it should be at the top: “I need to do what I love.”
Of course, the other bullets are good. Lots of important things in work life. We need to pay the bills, etc. Sometimes we have to readjust our desires and do what is not so desireable. That’s certainly needed.
But choosing your life’s journey with something you don’t love? That’s awkward, a genuine waste, a dying away at that which beacons you.
Put love at the top of life’s choices. Let it rule your life.
