Sometimes following your dream in a society obsessed with money and living lavishly may not be the easiest decision. We often determine success and happiness based on how much we are making financially, and the materialistic things we possess. Thus, most people will settle for a miserable job with a higher pay, rather than a path filled with passion and pure joy. I mean it’s understandable - we have to eat and sustain our livelihoods right? Following your dreams right now may not garner the financial gains that you would like to see immediately, but what if your dream yields into financial success later on in life? You wouldn’t know this, unless you refuse to abandon the very thing that fills your heart with happiness and gives your soul meaning.
I have always been the kind of person who thrives on passion and I have usually taken the road less traveled in every aspect of my life; so my career choice is no exception. This path hasn’t been the easiest but it’s been the most rewarding and growth-filled journey. I enjoy doing what I love. It makes my heart smile everyday and for me that’s what life should be about. My passion in life is to help people through my career. I find inspiration in bringing tangible changes through my work- I guess that’s why they call us agents of change! I might be a small fish in a very big pond but I choose to fight for my dreams and the endless possibilities it may bring.
So, whatever it is that you absolutely enjoy doing, whatever it is that sets your soul on fire, continue doing that. Do not allow anyone to dim your light or distract you from attaining your soul’s purpose. You deserve to live a life filled with meaning, where money doesn’t determine your happiness. You were born to leave your mark on this world. So no matter how big or small your dream may be, live a life that inspires others to chase after their passions and not money. After all when we leave this earth, our money will not go with us!
