Enjoy Your Life and Do What You Love
We’ve all seen or heard this quote in some form or another throughout our entire lives. David Frost’s is just one of the many authors and experts who correlate your levels of success with your love for what you do. But often we still get bogged down in the “hows”:
- How will I find the money?
- How will I find the time?
- How will I learn this or that skill?
But as you’ll see, it’s not the “how” that is important for you to know; it’s the “what.”
Do What You Love and Enjoy Your Life
Why is it so important you do what you love? A friend shared a true story that illustrates the importance of doing what you enjoy perfectly. It went like this:
A young girl who collected autographs of famous people was at the airport waiting to board her plane when she saw a crowd of people standing around a small man in a white robe.
She knew this man had to be someone well known because of the large crowd around him. She went up to one of the people standing nearby and asked who the man was. She was told, “That’s Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a great Saint from the Himalayas.”
The girl excitedly ran up to Maharishi and immediately asked for his autograph. Maharishi took her pen and paper, looked her straight in the eyes, and said, “I will give you something much more important than my autograph.” And on the piece of paper he wrote one word.
What was the message Maharishi was conveying? The whole purpose of life is to enjoy and do what you love. When you are not able to enjoy your life you are missing your life’s purpose and your chance to make a difference in this world.
Again, what’s so important about enjoying what you are doing? Think about all the greatest people on the planet, past and present. Every one of them, without exception, loved what they did or are now doing. Every single one of them. Their lives may not have been easy, they certainly faced challenges, and yet, they loved what they were doing.
Now think about the people you know who are truly happy. Don’t they love what they are doing in their lives? Maybe there are some parts of their lives that are challenging, but when it comes down to it, they love their lives, how they spend their days, and who they spend their lives with, don’t they?
