My Challenge Today:

Love what you are doing …

By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC


 

Success is not the key to happiness.

Happiness is the key to success.

If you love what you are doing,

you will be successful.

~ Albert Schweitzer

 


 

Love what you are doing and the happiness will be there naturally … love this concept! Have you ever noticed that when you are doing what you love, you lose track of time, you lose track of everything and you are completely fulfilled in your own world of happiness?

 

When you love what you are doing, you will be successful ~ this is another great concept that I love. Why not? Why not enjoy what we are doing, why not enjoy our life? We spend so much time working that it really behooves us to do something that we love. I have a very distinct memory of taking my first job out of school and being so disappointed because it was not fulfilling. I felt guilty hating the job and wanting to quit. I made a conscious choice to give it a whirl and see if I could make it work for me, it paid well, it was a good company and I was a newbie … so I knew I had to pay my dues. Everyday I came in to the job and had to do the same thing everyday – separate papers by color and file them…. boring and a bad use of people power. Well, all I could think of was the fact that I used to babysit and any child could do this job… why should I? I couldn’t do it … I had to quit, I felt so guilty but I had to leave. I knew that I had to work for a living and I made a choice right then that I wanted to enjoy my work … life is too short to be miserable everyday, all day long, ewww.

 

We all have to invest our time and energy into something in this life, we have to work at something, why not make it something fun?  And, I believe it’s best for our well-being that we choose to work at something that we enjoy – enjoying our work will support our success, our health and our Living Fit Lifestyle!
