Love your work or donít work at all
Why is it that so many people are willing to tolerate work they donít enjoy for the sake of a paycheck? I think itís because most of them simply donít know what itís really like to be in love with their work. Their fear is greater than their power, so they never make the leap into the unknown to find out what itís like to work from love instead of for money.
Consider the following quote from Kahlil Gibranís The Prophet:
Work is love made visible. And if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy. For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half manís hunger. And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distills a poison in the wine. And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle manís ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night. Is he exaggerating when he writes that itís better to leave work you dislike and take alms from those who enjoy their work? If you know what itís like to really love your work, then youíll probably see this is no exaggeration. When you do work you dislike, you poison your output. If that is the only work youíre capable of doing, youíre better off doing nothing. Meet your needs by asking for hand-outs if you must, since at least you wonít be poisoning others with your fear and resentment. If you cannot work in a state of joy, donít work at all. Otherwise youíre doing more harm than good, both to yourself and others, even if you have the talent to sing like an angel. No amount of money can compensate for that kind of damage.
Decide today that youíll manufacture no more poison.
Donít settle for less than youíre worth. Demand of yourself that youíll do work you love ó or no deal. Your negative emotions arenít there to annoy you or distract you. Theyíre shouting at you, ďThis is wrong. You must do something else.Ē No amount of self-discipline or denial can silence your inner truth. Instead of turning away from those feelings of fear and resentment, turn towards them. Engage them head on. Dialog with them. Journal your way through them. Tune in and listen to them as deeply as you can. Get in touch with that deeper part of yourself youíve been wishing would just go away so you can fit in. You arenít here to settle, to fit in, or to work for money. Youíre here to shine. And if youíre not in a position where you can truly shine today, then simply up and leave. Now.
