“I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”
~ Steve Jobs
We all aware of this legendary gentleman i.e. Steve Jobs, inventor of Apple Series and much more accomplishments that he has bagged. Let me simplify his excerpt that evidently declared, do what you love or else you will on no account you will feel accomplished at the end of the day. It became the raison d’être of his conquest and victories. All great people be it Jobs, Einstein, celebrities or anybody they did what their heart wanted and touched the sky.
First step to achieve your goal is to listen to your heart and scrutinize what you yearn for and in life. It can be anything doctor, engineer, painter, sports, glamour world, pick the trade where your psyche lies. If you get clicked then I bet this is the place where you wanted to be. Chat about the same with your parents and closed ones. Do not let their pronouncement dominate yours although snoop wisely for improved suggestions and wise decisions.
Once you are certain and convinced about your vision, orient all your energy towards it. Many would counter-question me that, it is not always about your desire and not all are born with a silver spoon in one’s mouth. I agree with this proclamation but you can continue your dream work as a part time work too. For e.g. There are so many women entrepreneurs who are house workers and occupied in raising their families. This was not their dream job, though in their idle time they incur their vigor and talent to do something dynamic and as per their wish. Let me give you all an example of one my friend working in IBM United States as a software developer. After she completes her daily chores she spares every day some time for her desire i.e. ornaments designing. Every weekend she opens her store and displays the intricate designs for both commercial as well as sample shipments. At the end of the day or say every weekend she is full of satisfaction and cheerfulness that she delivered something positive and worth. In this way she is complying with her family duties and at the same time pursuing her dream. If she can take out some time out of her hectic schedule then why can’t you?
I work in Logistics department of India’s pioneer company in Electronic Waste Management. Even though I love my job still my first love is writng.Due to my hectic day I am not able to inscribe on a daily basis however during weekend’s I jump into writing completely. You won’t believe it my friends but after writing a write-up, blog, article or even a short poem I feel accomplished and in high spirits. It makes me feel cheerful and a sensation of satisfaction flows in my soul that I have delivered something prolific. May be my job in my company gives me money but writing delivers satisfaction in my soul and heart. Here I experience that there are things that money can never buy.
I have seen people becoming engineers and doctors and working 24*7 to earn money. Conversely when I ask them that do you feel accomplished at the end of the day? There straight answer is no. I question them, why are you pursuing this job if you feel lethargic? There straight answer is for the reason that it helps me to bring up my family and I need money for this. For such people I would humbly suggest them that spare some time for yourself, ask your conscience what you want to do and then take out some time to work on that if not as full time job then as a hobby. We all have one life and we cannot prophesize future then why to waste time in doing things that do not provide us bliss?
I love writing and feel good when I see those write-ups, it gives me enormous contentment .When somebody appreciates my writing’s I feel equally good and accomplished for the reason that I have scribbled that out my heart and mind. This has been only feasible since I write from my spirit and no matter how much I earn or not earn through this, I feel exhilarating and blissful. It is true when you do your favorite work and if somebody praises you, you try to achieve greater heights in that particular field. I have particularly experienced this and felt happy and accomplished. All of us should pursue our dreams and live for it. Life is short so give the best shot and hit the right nail to feel contended and happy. Follow your dream, chase it high and work for it.
