Having a passion for something can be rare, especially when it comes to a job. Most people nowadays fall into a job and stick with it being a nine to five, five days a week thing. You will also find that more than most people don’t even enjoy there job and find it more of a chore rather than an exciting role. My dad worked for an independant financial advisors for most of his life and found it difficult to get up every morning.
Even though he loved his job and loved everything that it entailed, he was travelling 2 hours there and 2 hours to get home, and that was without traffic! He found that he was dragging himself to work, barely making it through the day and then driving home half asleep and missing dinner most nights. He knew deep down that something had to be done or he would start to spiral into depression.
What should you do next?
One morning he woke up and something had changed… his mindset. Once you change your mind, everything begins to fall into place. He decided he was going to start his own independant financial advisors company and he was going to make it work!
If you are lucky enough to find an occupation that you love, but you want more from it, follow your dream! You are more than capable of setting up your own business! Why not you? My dad set up his own business and he has never been so happy! He just took the plunge and fortunately, it worked.
Sometimes, it doesn’t always go to plan, but if you know what you want and you are persistent in getting that, you will always succeed in the end, just never give up.
