  1. Time flies.Decided to finish the case for 5 minutes – done, we got up from his chair and realized that took 3:00.
  2. You do not understand and blamed for your occupation. What do you do? Why did you come so late? Maybe you’ll find a normal job? It is not serious!
  3. By making increased amounts of energy. You just work and you feel good. If the results you are striving for, and then the motivation rises hundreds of times. And if you are thus also earn seriously, you even lost to society.
  4. You seek advice. Asking for help, asking questions, “sit on the ears” and persistently talk about problems, ask what you can advise.

My dentist told me that the theater once met his client, who greeted and immediately after the greeting opened his mouth and asked to see what was out there with the five above.

Find your calling in life and follow it – is the way to happiness and prosperous life at the same time.

But is it easy to find it?

What prevents to find a vocation

Asking people the question: “What would you do if the financial issues were resolved” you can get a lot of interesting and innovative responses. Very rarely these answers coincide with the ongoing work.

What usually answer the question: “Why not take the fact that you like?”

  • I have no experience.
  • Positions in the city a little.
  • In this no money.
  • In our country, no one needs.
  • To do this, you need to get a second degree.
  • If I fail? If I fail ??
  • I can not, I have to feed a family.

Fears and insecuritieslead to the fact that people can not find his calling and favorite work. They work for the hated work (out of habit) and do not want to try anything new. And if you do not try not to start anything new, it is impossible to change their lives.

There is another problem in the calling search – compare yourself with others. In 99% of cases, want what the neighbor or what they say in the fashion magazines – it means giving up your real life.

People who have found their calling, do not compare yourself with others.

One young artist came to the US to engage in creative and paint. At this time he was talking with a friend for a long time living in America. They had approximately the following dialog.- What do you do – I’m doing my job. I write kartiny.- How much are you selling his paintings – $ 50 per shtuku.- How much ??? Maybe you you want to do something normal? We in America have a lot of good raboty.- No, no, I’m doing my job.

Exactly 5 years held a similar dialogue.

– What are you doing – I’m doing my job. I write kartiny.- How much are you selling his paintings – 50,000 dollars per shtuku.- !!!

This example shows one more important thing – about the consistency in achieving their goals. If you decide to try something or learn any skill, take yourself plenty of time to the first failure did not stop you.
