“Can you describe your ideal work day?”
Since you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you’re not experiencing your ideal work day at this moment. If you were, you’d be busy doing what you love to do instead of reading an article to help you get where you want to go.
Stay with me. I’m here to help. One of the most important gifts you can give yourself is the same one that you can give to everyone you work with. It’s to align your heart and talent with the work you do.
This is the only way to live wholeheartedly.
If you settle for anything less, the work you do will suck the energy out of you moment by moment, day after day.
As you take strategic steps to spend more time doing what you love, you’ll inevitably work less and less. What you’re doing won’t feel like work. Keep in mind that working and being busy DO NOT equate to a higher cash flow. Doing what you love to do doesn’t guarantee a higher cash flow either.
So assuming that you’re going to do activities every day that add value to your life and to the lives of others, doesn’t it make sense to choose activities that you enjoy?
If you don’t have a clear picture of your ideal work day, don’t worry. Most people don’t. And even if they do, they haven’t done what it takes to make it their daily reality. If you doubt this, feel free to conduct your own poll. Ask some people you know to describe their ideal work day and then ask if it aligns with their daily life. If so, you might have just found yourself a mentor who can help you transform your life. If not, please share this article with people who desire to align their cash flow with the work they love.
How many people do you know who absolutely love what they do?
Now imagine someone you know who hates his work. It might be a colleague, a family member, or a cashier at a place you shop. Assuming that all men are created equal, what’s the biggest difference between someone who loves his work and someone who doesn’t?
This isn’t a trick question. It’s a question of the heart. One has positioned herself to be happy with her work. One hasn’t. If you dare to ask someone who hates his work, he might give you a long list of excuses about why things never seem to work out for him.
Ironically, his miserable situation creates opportunities for others.
Unhappy people are just as important as happy people. If you’re a compassionate listener who loves to counsel and coach people, you might be more than willing to listen to his stories for hours. Or if you love to write country music, you might be able to capture some lyrics for a new song.
“Nothing is neither good nor bad, but thinking makes it so.”
Do you think it’s possible for you to make your ideal work day a reality for you? The best answer here is “yes.” If you don’t believe it’s possible, then you’ll surely prove it to yourself over and over again. Why torture yourself? You deserve to be happy. And so does everyone around you!
Regardless of what you’re feeling right now, just assume for a moment that you do indeed deserve to be happy today and every day. Keeping this in mind, schedule a little time to vividly imagine your ideal work day. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- make journal entries over the next few days to describe your ideal work day with as much detail as possible
- gather up some magazines, scissors and glue and make a collage that gives you a visual illustration of your ideal work day
- brainstorm a list of things you love to do and note ideas on how you could position yourself to start earning income with some of these activities
