Zuki, If you love what you are doing to earn a living, you will never work again. It is so important to love what you chose to do. Forget the hours, the pressure, the uncertainty and the responsibility, they are fears that keep people from finding out who they really are. Sure there will be problems and responsibilities, but they are always present, they are part of life. I believe if you have a passion about something the chances of failure are greatly reduced.

Try not thinking of the obstacles, think about what you love to do. Stay where you are without fear, plan your future,then make a move, and above all, believe in yourself.

Words of wisdom I heard many years ago;

Do not run from something, instead run towards something you love.

Hope this helps, John C.

This post has inspired me to take a look into the mirror and re-evalute my current situation, both from a work's perspective as well as life in general.

I agree with what someone said earlier, "Life is too short". Amen! You know, we let events in our lives pass us by and then dwell on what we "should have" done instead of just doing it in the first place! How many times have you thought to yourself... "Why didn't I make that move?" Or, "I should have talked to that person yesterday!" We find ourselves putting things off way too much instead of living life to it's greatest potential. Even if we have failures we at least tried and that's a heck of a lot better than failure because we didn't bother to act! At least there is no remorse or guilt if we attempt something.

My job sucks too although I am not in sales. I am more on a salary but very overworked and underpaid. (Who isn't right?) I guess that's the American way. Life should not be this way. You have the "fat cats" at the top of the food chain who have it all figured out and the rest of us are basically slaves to corporate America. It's disgusting!

I just wish I knew what I enjoyed. That's MY problem. I like many things but I guess I don't have the passion for that "one" thing. The things I do enjoy would pay peanuts and I would have to live in a shack and ride a bike to work. Hmmmm, maybe not such a bad idea! LOL

If I didn't have a wife and kids I would quit my current job right now and go do something fun, who cares. But when you are "stuck" in a career because you are afraid to lose money it's not a good situation. I can't afford to just "quit" or take something with less pay! Sure, I don't make a ton of money but there is no way I could change careers and make what I do now. STUCK in a dead-end job with no light in sight.

So.. my goal is to find those passions! I know they are in there someplace.

Good Luck all!
