What is the difference between your job or work you go to each day and your life’s purpose or mission?
Life is so much more than showing up to work for 40 hours a week to get a paycheck. To truly get satisfaction and fulfillment in life is to do, or work at what God put in your heart to do. You may ask, “How do I know what God put in my heart to do?” To answer this we must all go on an inward journey, a journey of the heart.
We must answer the question, What is my purpose in life?
The answer may be divided into the following questions/thoughts:
Would I do what I am doing if I had only little time to live and my time was running out?
Do I look forward to each day of work as a new experience and adventure or do I dread each work day, just trying to get to the end of the day, end of the week, living for the weekend, holidays and vacations?
Am I working from my head or from my heart? Am I working from what the world system or others have influenced into my mind or from what my faith has put into my heart?
Enjoying your life’s work and seeking joy should be a priority over money or any other influences such as flashy titles. Your job should not be just a source of income. If you do not enjoy what you do, you will end up missing out on your life, which doesn’t contribute well to a healthy lifestyle. The job you dislike will likely negatively affect the other areas of your life. As the lines between work life and personal life blend, a job is as much about personal fulfillment and health as it is about a paycheck. Your work should make you feel good mentally, emotionally as well as physically.
Work that you love to do will provide extra motivation to meet goals and be successful. You will carry and radiate that success wherever you go, helping yourself in other areas of your life. A job that you love to do will help you feel more fulfilled, be more productive, you will inspire others around you and you will succeed.
