Building a dream job
It is an ancient wisdom sometimes used in managment training: doing what you like is freedom. But liking what you do is happiness. There are only a few lucky workers who do what they like. Many more struggle a lifetime to like what they do.
In The work we were born to do, international best selling author Nick Williams draws heavily on his own experience. He used to sell computers and was caught up in the rat-race, knowing deep down that this was not what he wanted. He had the courage to change his career and live out his dream to be a coach and an author.
“The choice to be an inspired entrepreneur, as opposed to simply being a small business owner, is one of the best ways to make the contribution you were born to make – and live a happy, inspired and fulfilled life.”
Williams says the inner calling that inspires you to do the work you were born to do, is deeply aligned with your entrepreneurial nature. Although the type of business you operate is an important consideration, the reasons why you enter business in the first place and how it can become a vehicle for your personal freedom, are more important.
