Is passion the key to success in the current job market?
I think that, when it comes to success in the work industry, passion is an incredibly important aspect.
When you love your job, you easily become more invested in it, you become more motivated and even excited to go to work. If you work in something that doesn’t appeal to you, you will find yourself struggling to come up with ideas, you will feel forced to be working, you will become more stressed and you won’t really be happy. That is why it is important to find out what you really want to do in the world of work. As Steve Jobs once said, “if you haven’t found it yet, keep looking; don’t settle”. You shouldn’t stop looking for the perfect job for you because, when you do find it, you will feel very relieved and you will become less stressed and much happier.
To conclude, if you really want to be successful in the future world of work, you should follow Steve Jobs’ advice and make sure you work your hardest in a job you truly enjoy and wouldn’t mind doing for the rest of your life. It will keep you motivated and it will make ideas flow in your head.
