As an American, this is the time of year that I tend to reflect on the people and things I am grateful for. There’s just something about expressing gratitude that makes me feel good. It seems to calm any stresses that are going on in my life, helps me focus on the positive things that are happening, and gives me a better outlook. Not only that, but it also motivates me. With that said, it begs the question, why do we only take time out for this once a year? And more importantly, why aren’t we practicing gratitude when it comes to our careers?
A career that you can do with joy, is a career of passion. Whether you aspire to be a writer, musician, accountant, teacher, or even a website designer it is important that you start out understanding that you may not get rich from your passion. And that’s ok.
