Do What you Love to Do and Never Work a Day in You
If you are doing what you love to do, it allows you to be your true self all of the time. Think about it. It really takes a tremendous amount of energy on a daily basis to not be authentic at work. Sometimes we feel we have to take on a sort of “false persona” to fulfill the job requirements. Your ideal job will enable you to be who you are and not waste any energy.
Champion Your Career
Your dream job fits into your life by integrating perfectly into your lifestyle. Your ideal career will feel like a natural part of who you are and it will not necessarily interfere with other aspects of your life. Of course, some days may be more stressful and chaotic than others, but basically you can still find the balance to have a fulfilling life.
