Many of us I believe from reading the wonderful MEME'sthat are posted have had many career changes during their lifetimes. While some have had more then others, being on the Activerain Community has made me wonder if you truly LOVED the work you are doing now? It is something you fell into or is it something, perhaps without reason, that you felt DRAWN to and decided to pursue? Despite the difficulties you have encountered (or are Still encountering), you know and feel THIS is what you were meant to do?
Or is it a "stepping stone" to something that moves you closer to what it really is you desire to do? For years I couldn't answer the question "What do YOU want to be when you Grow Up?" because I simply didn't know. And while some of the professions I've had previously were interesting or I liked them for one reason or another, it wasn't to be something that was meant to last forever.
I am asked often by clients and others what led me to Feng Shui and I can only reply that I was absolutely drawn to it. And in speaking with some of the Home Stagers, they were also 'working their magic' for others long before there was an official "name" for it. Though they often encounter trials and some setbacks, they have a wonderful mindset of this is what they love and this is what they are going to DO. Period!
Some of the Real Estate Agents I work with feel that way as well, even in a sometimes difficult market. They LOVE what they do and it's not all about money. They are thrilled to have found people a home, they also develop, establish and keep real relationships and friendships they have made with homeowners. They are doing their work because they love it.
I wondered how many people on Activerain, who have all found ourselves together on this site for one reason or another, truly love what they do? And if what started out to be a stepping stone into some other work, did they stay because they now love what THEY do? I have always believed and always will that you will never fail at something you love....
