“The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
– Steve Jobs
Unfortunately, not everybody loves what they do. However, there are many lucky folks out there who are simply in love with their profession. Are you interested in trying to become one yourself? If so, take the time to read some wise words of advice from people who love what they do.
The Attitude of Gratitude
Arthur C. Brooks is a leading figure in the science of gratitude. He coaches people to be grateful. And guess what? He happens to love what he does. His advice to us is to focus on interior and exterior gratitude. Interior gratitude involves privately finding things to be grateful for, while exterior gratitude involves sharing it with others. In other words, choose to be grateful and you will be happier in your work.
Serve and Create
Lindsey Silker is a nurse who loves her job because it allows her to witness “patients transform and blossom.” It’s been documented people with the highest job satisfaction are those that serve others or create things. This includes…
- Construction Workers
The satisfaction comes from being able to serve others or see a tangible result from a job well done. If you are looking for a fulfilling job, these industries might be for you.
Mike Rowe, creator and host of the reality show Dirty Jobs, has some great advice for those looking to get into the business of loving what they do. His secret is to quit thinking of your occupation as your soulmate. Instead, he says, “Stop worrying about your happiness. Happiness does not come from a job. It comes from knowing what you truly value, and behaving in a way that’s consistent with those beliefs.”
In other words, you will enjoy your job more if you recognize it as a vehicle for a fulfilling life. The fulfilling life is what makes you happy. It isn’t just the job. Now that’s some good advice. Be grateful, find a career that serves or creates, and don’t sweat it if you don’t. Get yourself in balance and the rest will follow!
