Careers are for people who wish to advance. I only want to survive, draw a paycheck. This is merely a job. I can take or leave this place. I start to imagine quitting and following my yet-to-be-determined passion.
Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin
A career is wonderful, but you can’t curl up with it on a cold night.
You know you are on the road to success if you would do your job, and not be paid for it.
You can be pursuing a profession because your parents say it’s the best thing. You can be pursuing a profession because you think you will make a lot of money. You can be pursuing a profession because you think you are going to get a lot of attention. None of that will do you any good if you are not being honest with yourself.
Would you do your job and not be paid for it? I would do this job, and take on a second job just to make ends meet if nobody paid me. That’s how you know you are doing the right thing.
What I know is, is that if you do work that you love, and the work fulfills you, the rest will come.
