Do What You Love, Love What You Do.
I believe we must follow our heart in our work or career. There’s a saying; “think with your heart, and love with your mind.” When we think with our heart, it’s something like “feeling,” how it would be if you were in that place which gives us the feeling of satisfaction with what we are doing with our life. It is not only our time and effort in our daily routine which affects us when we are doing what we enjoy, it’s our life’s purpose. Because you believe in what you are doing, and you are using your talent, (which was meant for you to use or you wouldn’t have been given it in the first place.) you are truly satisfied, and happy. In this life’s journey, you are finally headed to your destination of making a difference in the world with your God given talent.
Many people have taken a risk and followed their heart and calling. They are everyday people and feel great about the work they do and their careers. Others have become famous with their talent and have influenced others to follow their own dreams. I hope you enjoy reading these enlightening thoughts.
Wake up and do work you love!
All the best,
