A Job or a Career: Following you passion!


'Do a job that you love and you will never work a day in your life'

It's a quote that we here more and more often these days! Whether you are only young and just entering the world of work, or if you have been working for years it really does inspire you to go follow your passion and turn you job into a career that you love. However it isn't that simple is it? Keep reading to find out how you can turn your passion into your career...


First thing's first! Getting that dream job is not going to be straight forward and a lot of work and determination is definitely needed. You might need to even get studying and get some qualifications under your belt before it is even plausible..

Nevertheless going to work in a place you don't enjoy can be difficult and makes life a struggle, especially if your passion and talents aren't being fulfilled. If you are currently in a job that you don't enjoy, it can be even more difficult moving on and making that leap. 

A lot of workers don't want to make that move because it potentially could be risky. You job might be a stable one, however your dream job could maybe not be like that, although it is your dream career move. If you are a little nervous about moving, remind yourself that if you don't make that scary step, you might be sitting in the same position years from now. It really is important to not let nerves or hesitation stop you from moving on...

Take into consideration what effects moving into your dream job may have and prepare for it. That will make the change less daunting. Although it might be the perfect job for you and one that you know you will love, preparation will make the career change more manageable and less nerve wracking.

Remember if you are in a job that you really don;t like and you feel you are stuck in a rut, it will effect your health and your happiness. It isn't healthy for anyone to be in a situation day in and day out that they don't enjoy and can really drain you out, making you much more likely to get stressed or get really down. Moving into a new career that allows you to follow your passions is a great way of reducing stress and making you happier and more confident, especially if you are talented at what you do.

Even if you are sitting right now and you know that now is maybe not the best time to make that move, however you will want to change career to something more fulfilling at some point in the future, it's not to say you need to wait. Have a look out for any training or experience that you can take part in until you feel the time is right. It is a great way of building your chances of success later on in the line when you move on. 

Lastly, one thing I will say especially if you have maybe just left school and finished studying, is that it is completely normal to feel you have made a mistake. You might have spent years getting some degree and then a few months into what you thought was your ideal career realized that it really isn't for you. Don't be disheartened. I have made 5 career changes since leaving school and only now I feel I am in my perfect career! Have a think about what will make you happy and strive towards it. You might need to do a little more work, but it is better getting into a happy career than staying in something that makes you miserable...

I have always been a great believer that I would rather be in a job that makes me happy than in one that makes me more money. Their is nothing worse than dreading your week, simply because you don't enjoy what you do for a living. That's why  I think it is so important for people to take that risk and go turn their passion into their career.
