There’s an old saying that if you love your job, you’ll never work a day in your life. I don’t think this is quite true to a certain extent. Most people work very hard even if they love their jobs. They must do things they don’t like to do.They must give effort above and beyond what’s comfortable.
It’s probably more accurate to say that if you’re doing something you believe in, that hard work you do will bring you great satisfaction. The work will almost always be fulfilling.
It’s good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that really matters in the end. I’ve met many people who had destination disease. They think that arriving at a certain place in life will bring them happiness. What a shame. Because the reality is that many times, when we arrive where we hope we would, we discover that it wasn’t what we expected.
If you become fixated on a destination, even a dream destination, you can miss the joy of today. If you’re convinced that someday is going to be your best day, you won’t put enough into today—or get enough out of it.
If you’re not doing something with your life in a productive manner, it doesn’t really matter how long it is. It’s not enough to just survive. You need to really live. When you can not only enjoy your position, but truly perform with a passion, you will have much higher success.
Always believe in what you do and allow this to flourish onto your clients as well as onto other investors you may be working with.
