“Don’t expect others to hand success to you. Create it – with heart, energy, and enterprise – and you’ll make it come true” ~ Rasheed Ogunlaru
As young children, we are encouraged to think about what we want to be when we grow up; fireman, astronaut, ballerina. Certainly, no child says, “I want to be an accountant,” for a seven-year-old has no concept of an accountant, a physical therapist, or a book editor. Then after 10 or 11 years of schooling, we must make choices around our career. What enterprise will we undertake? Our choice will have long-ranging effects far beyond what we can comprehend at this age. Sometimes our choice works out for the best and other times, it creates a kind of prison for us. We spend more time working than with our families. What we do should bring us satisfaction. It should stimulate our imagination, encourage our creativity, in addition to compensating us appropriately.
If anyone finds themselves at a point where their work is sucking more energy than it ever gives back, never be afraid to rethink your career or enterprise. Don’t let how much time or effort changing your career will require deter you from pursuing your dreams, the time will go by anyway. You owe it to yourself to embark on an enterprise that will fulfill you. If you are moving towards your dreams, your soul will feel alive. When your soul is fed, life becomes a much richer and deeper canvas. Engage your Heart, Ignite your Spirit!
