Do What You Love

Finding your life’s purpose will be one of the most important decisions you make. Once you have found your sweet spot, your holy grail, the next step is to build your life around it.

Knowing your purpose and living your purpose is not the same.
What we do to bridge this gap ultimately decides the quality of our reality.

Here are a few tips to make the journey easier:

➢ Articulate your life’s purpose in detail

We can create all that we can conceive. Writing down your dream helps to crystallize your goals and concentrate your attention.

➢ Inculcate self-discipline –

There will be times when the road ahead will seem impossible and you will be plagued by self-doubt. In times like these, it is easy to give up on your dream. Moreover, when you are working on your dream, the locus of control shifts from the outside world to your inner being, often leading you to slow down on tasks. Disciplining yourself to keep up a daily schedule and consistently following through on all activities will help you remain on track.

➢ Don’t expect immediate results

The starting phase requires your undivided attention. This is the time when you get to work at your craft and hone it to precision. Learn to treat every challenge as a learning opportunity.

➢ Be resilient if things do not go as expected

Planning for every eventuality is a good beginning, but not a guarantee against perceived failure. Rise up after every fall.

➢ Work hard

The axiom ‘Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life’ does not mean that you will not have to work hard. It means that work might not seem like work.

➢ Plan for the long haul

Most ideas require a certain running time before they take off. So it’s essential to plan for the long haul, especially if you are supporting a family and need to pay bills.

➢ Break it down

At times the scale of our dream might seem daunting.

The clarity of purpose and having the tenacity, discipline, and focus to go the distance will optimize your chances of success.
