Doing What We Love Always Brings Success


A blogger recently reminded me of something important regarding having a prosperity consciousness. It's about doing what we love to do.

I've always believed that when we work at something we love, whether it's waiting on tables, driving a truck, painting, performing music, we will always be successful. I really do believe that. I believe we are all born with many talents and gifts - some say they are from God - and when we use them, we will experience success.

Loving what we do is not a common concept in this society. People are conditioned to focus on making ends meet, working to pay the bills, in other words, survival. We are conditioned to believe that if our talents do not meet with what society considers "prestigious", then we can't hope to make any money doing it. We are conditioned in this society to believe that making the money is what's most important.

When we do what we love to do, it doesn't feel like work, it feels like fun. I believe that's the way it's supposed to feel! I have witnessed numerous examples, besides my own, of people doing what they enjoy doing most in life for a living.

For example, one guy I know worked in a grocery store as a produce man for over 30 years. I was admiring the produce one day, saying to him how the fruit and vegetables were always fresh and the displays were always so very pretty and inviting. He then told me how much he loves all plants. He expressed how happy and privileged he felt every morning to come to work and be among all of the vegetation. He said it didn't feel like work at all and although he earned an excellent income, this was something he would do for free. I see this man as a very successful, prosperous man, living his life joyfully doing what he loves to do.

One of many good books on this topic which I highly recommend is called, Do What You Love, The Money Will Follow by Marsha Sinetar.

If you have any examples about what happens when we do what we love to do, feel free to share them here!

I think it is not always the best strategy to do what we love. Specially in academic life, in our own interest, we need to select topics that the supervisor is interested in. I know a young lady who took a topic of her choice and is struggling very hard. It seems even God is testing her. What do you think?

I believe doing what we love to do in life is what we are supposed to do in life, rather than a strategy. It sounds like the young lady you mentioned who took a topic of her choice didn't choose a topic she loved.

When we love doing something, lets say, Italian cuisine, for example, and want to do it for a living, it will not seem like work. There would be no struggle, just fun. This is what I'm talking about.

If this young lady is struggling, I do not believe it is God testing her. If what she is studying is not bringing her joy, and it must not be otherwise there would be no struggle, I feel moving on to a topic that does is the way to go.

Doing what we love to do can only bring us joy because it speaks to our soul. It represents our purpose in life. When we are in the state of joy, we are connected to our soul and to God.

Thank you for your comment!
