For as long as I can't remember, I've always wondered: "How do you still find yourself in the business or the business to your liking?". What would be interesting, and the case brought moral satisfaction and financial stability. Changed jobs and was constantly dissatisfied.
For a short time, the new path took me, I was interested, and I studied it with full dedication. But some time passed, and the new, recently exciting profession became a routine and "mandatory". And again and again I was faced with the question of how to find my business, and finally calm down.
There are an insane number of jobs in the labor market that no one likes and certainly does not consider their business or purpose. Movers, cleaners, plumbers, electricians, dishwashers, bus drivers, shepherds, milkmaids, spinners. People are forced to work in a job they don't like. Not everyone has the courage to do what the soul requires, more often they have to do what they pay money for. Of course, there is nothing wrong with someone working as a milkmaid, you would think that the work does not correspond to the person's idea of himself. But at the same time it is possible not to feel true aversion to such work, rather resignation to fate.
Even as a businessman, a person has never been an example of freedom, rather here he is a demanding boss and a hostage of his business.
So is there a chance to turn your work into something you love? Or is the job and the profession that brings money, in any case, can not become a favorite?
For some reason, it is customary to treat the work that pays you money seriously, and what a person really likes to call a somewhat pejorative word "hobby". A lot of effort and energy is spent by a person in order to justify at least for themselves the importance and necessity of unloved and unnecessary work, sitting out the prescribed hours for a salary.
And what a person really likes to do is treated as"pampering". Is it possible to find a business that will bring happiness and joy every day, or is the hopeless everyday life of plowing for "someone else's uncle" a normal state of an adult?
The answer lies in finding your business.
Often in life there are two types of " Their own Affairs»:
1. This is when a person is interested in the process itself. It has been working for a long time, expanding with interest within its specifics, and people are interested in honing details and digging deeper. But at the same time, a person will not engage in this business for the love of art, it must necessarily bring material or other benefits. Example: a person likes to sell. Then such a person with the same effect will become a seller of bricks, flowers, plastic Windows.
2. When a person does something because they can't help doing it. It doesn't matter if he gets paid for it or not. Scientists, writers, and artists do their work and forget about the material components of life.
Asking questions to yourself and studying the materials is not difficult to come to some criteria for your business.
1. Business should be fun.
And, as a rule, the pleasure comes from the work that we do not do for money. You can work in a low-paid job, but in a wonderful team, and enjoy working when the day passes unnoticed from communicating with people close in spirit.
And Vice versa, a person holds a high-paid position, has a flexible work schedule, various bonuses, but if he spends the whole day in a confrontation with the public, performs duties that are not interesting to him because "it is necessary", then no money or benefits will keep him. And here it doesn't even matter what to do, how much to get to work, work for yourself or for "uncle", how much to earn at the same time, if you don't enjoy what you do, then it can hardly be called Your business.
2. The case should be creative.
Of course, the process of making money and creativity in its purest form are opposed to each other. If creativity is a process of creating something new and unique that did not exist before and is valuable not only for the author, but also for others, then work is a process of earning money in order to maintain yourself at least at the level of survival. Nobody managed to combine these two aspects. Artists, artists, and writers may invest some of their talent in their works, but they are paid by producers, gallery owners, and publishing houses. And the more stable the system – the less creative disorder it allows. And, nevertheless, a person seeks to find a place where he brings some of his skills and abilities, talent and soulfulness in search of his business.
3. the Case should be stable.
Bring the right amount of money, enough for this particular person, and bring consistently and regularly.
So, "Your business" should be consistently paid, creative and fun.
So, to understand this help a few questions asked to yourself:
1. What would I do if I didn't have to work?
Let's say I don't need money at all: I'm a millionaire, what kind of job would I go to? what occupation would you choose?The answer can be anything. Would you like to start farming and growing strawberries? Or gardening and setting up a greenhouse? Take care of people or animals. We would write a picture or a book, or shoot humorous videos. Whatever activities you like, whether you're a billionaire.
2. Who did I dream of being as a child?
What need (need for what) does a child's dream reflect? Who did I want to be like?I remember exactly that I wanted to be an Olympic champion, but I wanted to be like a girl who everyone confides their secrets to. This reflected my need to interact with people and benefit them.
3. If I want to do it in three years? Five years from now?
All this is enough to find something to do and enjoy it.In many sources, I have seen tips on what you need to write what skills and qualities you have, what professions you would like to own, what your heart is in, and so on. And writing out these qualities and professions will lead to the fact that there will be an understanding of what your purpose is, and what "Your business" will become the business of your entire life.
Only it doesn't work. All skills and qualities are good for work or business, but this is only one component of Your business.
As soon as you decide on the components Of your business, you can only act. You don't need to be afraid of experimenting, you just need to do it. Allow yourself, for example, a month or two or three to determine, ask yourself if I want to do this in three years and act. And it's not a big deal if it doesn't work out. You just need to go back to the above questions and go deeper into yourself.After all, when a person is lost and does not know what he wants to do, he is like a scuba diver at the bottom. You just need to start climbing.
