When you love something, it’s far easier to work hard on it, stay late, go the extra mile.
When you love somebody, it’s far easier to work hard to make the relationship happen, make the relationship last.
When you love an idea, it’s far easier to sell it to others.
The trouble starts when the love isn’t there.
The trouble starts when you start faking it.
When your only motivation is physical, not spiritual.
Finding love in our work and our relationships is our greatest task on this earth. If you haven’t found it yet, above all keep looking. It really is the only reason we have to be here.
This really spoke to me. I have been toiling away at things I don’t have passion for and end up having problems with others. For a while, I wondered if I had issues working with a team. Yes, I do have issues working with a team, even though, I am learning to do so, but majorly, I think my problem comes from being forced to work on things I have no passion for.
To express more caution than I am used to, where do I draw the line between working based on passion and working to pay bills?
