Why do people work ?

Isn’t your biggest anticipation from your job or profession, to be excited about what you do ?

If your work excites you, perhaps, no need to read any further. But if you don’t feel fresh at 6 pm, or if you don’t feel that your day begins at any time of the day, then you may want to think along with me.

Why is it that some of us think of money as the biggest motivator to work ? Why do companies or even nations set goals purely in terms of money & growth ? Even when they talk about inclusive growth, its still in terms of money!

Money is a medium of exchange that we use to buy something that excites us, or solves our pain or helps us gain. So if excitement was not important, money would not be either. But why do we think we can be bored for 9 hours a day just to earn our pay, that might allow us to buy things that excite us ?

We don’t realize what excitement does to us! Don’t we ? We don’t realize how it opens doors for us. If you are excited about what you do, you make others want to work with you. It makes others want to give you responsibility, because they feel, that the work will get done, well.

You want to do something else in life? Your heart is somewhere else? Well! It shows! If you are not happy doing something ‘now’, you don’t attract any positive belief in YOU, by others, ‘now’. If they are not convinced about you, on what you are doing ‘now’, they cannot help you reach a point, where you can do what really excites you.

So is there really any alternative to “doing what excites you” ? What can tell us what’s right? Is there something that guides us & shows us the path ?

You are most likely to succeed, when you radiate your purpose in life. People see an excited ‘you’ & want to do business. Else, you are always working on effort mode. You are pushing for things to happen. Else, people get pulled by you. Isn’t that the path of least resistance to success ?

Try it! Its gets easy once you are in it. Then you could use your emotions to guide you & keep you in your path of success !
