“It’s driven me before and it seems to have a vague, haunting mass appeal. And lately I’m beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel.” -Incubus
The following are a couple of great questions for you to think about. Who is running your life? Is it your decisions or is it outside influences steering your direction?
Have you come up with your answers? Are you sure?
Life is complicated, and can be even more complicated based on your decisions. When you have adult responsibilities(mortgage, kids, utility payments, etc.), there is a new standard of living that plays a major factor in your options. So what do you want with your life?
If your goal is the move up the company ladder, than keep doing what you’re doing. Keep up the hard work and focus on what is important. You’ll be taking the next step in no time.
But what if your passion is to do something completely different than your day job? Then you need to put in the work to achieve your goals and dreams. Spending 9 hours at your job and then 15 minutes on your dream are not going to get you there. You will just continue to be burned out and frustrated.
Give 100% to what is important and don’t slow down to listen to the critical. It’s time for you to take the wheel and drive towards your passion.
Never stop believing in yourself! Talk to you soon 🙂
