Approximately 76% of Americans live paycheck-to-paycheck, meaning that odds are you need to work to support yourself. While you need to fulfill your monetary obligations, is it unreasonable to expect to enjoy your job?
Where You Invest Your Time Matters
You spend most of your waking hours at work, and you deserve to enjoy what you do. Even if you are still working your way up the ladder, or working a part-time job—find a company and colleagues you enjoy spending your time with.
If You Enjoy Your Job, It Won’t Feel Like Work
The best thing you can do in terms of living a fulfilling life, is to find a job that allows you to get paid to do the things you love. This was a challenging one for me to comprehend, because I found many jobs I excelled in—but did not particularly enjoy. Find both, and you will wake each day eager to get started.
Money Isn’t Everything
We all know at least one person who made a career change from a high paying job, to a lower yet more fulfilling job—and is happier than ever. As great as it is to make more money, we have a tendency to live to our means. And you will be surprised at the many ways you find to save money, without sacrificing what you love.
It might feel like a bold move, but you deserve to do what you love in life!
