Do What You Love or Love What You Do?

Many people think that when you are passionate about something, it does not work. They say you should do what you love and the money will follow. However, I’m going to argue that money will only follow if you love what you do and also have a plan on how to make it profitable. This article will help you decide whether you should focus on doing what you love or figuring out how to make the thing(s) you love profitable (or both).

Doing what you love

There are a lot of people out there who will tell you that you need to do what you love. And there’s a lot of truth to that. If you’re passionate about something, you’re more likely to be successful at it. But that doesn’t mean you can’t be successful at something you don’t love. There are plenty of people who have found success by doing what they love.

Loving what you do

It’s not always easy to love what you do. Sometimes, you have to do what you love in order to love what you do. But if you can find a way to love what you do, it’ll make the work feel a lot less like work. And that’s when you know you’ve found your calling. You may be able to relate.

It’s so important to remember: people will want to follow you and invest in you because they know they’re going on this journey with someone who is loving their life. And remember: If at any point in time, you’re feeling unfulfilled doing something – stop doing it and start something new!

The right mindset

The right mindset (what I call a success mindset) is what:

  • Convinces you to start before you feel ready,
  • Motivates you to keep going (even though you know you might fail),
  • Keeps you focused so that you don’t get distracted or procrastinate, and
  • Empowers you to learn from and bounce back from setbacks (instead of giving up discouraged).

Decide first, then get advice

Before you can answer the question, Should I do what I love or love what I do? you need to ask yourself what you want out of life. Once you know what you want, get advice from people who have already achieved what you’re striving for. Only then can you make an informed decision about which path to take. Keep in mind that just because something makes you happy doesn’t mean it’s your calling.

5 signs to know if it’s time to move on

1. You’re dreading going to work every day.

2. You’re not being challenged anymore.

3. The company culture has changed (for the worse).

4. Your job is negatively impacting your health.

5. You’re not being paid what you’re worth. If you don’t find yourself looking forward to going into work and instead dread it, it might be time for a change. If you are feeling as though your skills aren’t growing, if there’s no one left who can train you, if the company culture is changing for the worse, or if your job has become unhealthy for your well-being then it may be time to move on and find something that will fulfill all of these needs. When we don’t feel happy at our jobs it affects us mentally and physically.

Advice from others who have made career changes

I’ve always been passionate about environmental work, so I decided to leave my corporate job and start a sustainable fashion brand. It’s been a lot of work, but I love what I’m doing and I feel more fulfilled than ever.

I loved my job as a teacher, but after having kids, I realized that I needed to be home with them.

Expert advice

There’s no one answer to this question. It depends on your individual circumstances and what you’re looking for in a career. However, there are some things you should keep in mind when making your decision. First, if the work doesn’t bring you joy, don’t expect it to get better with time. The longer you spend doing something that doesn’t make you happy, the more unhappy and unmotivated you’ll become. Second, do something that allows you to use your natural talents–even if it means taking a step down in terms of salary or prestige.

Tips for following your passion in your 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond.

Your 20s are a time to explore. Try different things. Don’t be afraid to fail. Find what you’re passionate about and pursue it. Work hard, study your craft, get good at it. But don’t forget about the other aspects of life like family, friends, vacations and balance. Invest in your physical health too. When you’re older, make sure you have something else besides work that makes you happy.
