Do you love what you do? Do you wake up in the morning excited to get going and are buzzing after a great day?
Or do you feel exhausted at the thought of all that you’ve got to do? Does everything feel like a slog? Perhaps you feel like you’ve got to get your head down and there’s just no time to have any fun!
I trained 28 people over 2 days last week and I loved every minute of it!
Don’t get me wrong I had to overcome my own fears at training such a big group, which I’d never done before.
And yes I was pretty exhausted at the end of the 2 days.
But I was also buzzing at the end of it.
And it really made me realise how much I love what I do. Seeing how people can do things differently and step into change.
Just 18 months ago I co-hosted my first ever 2 hour workshop for only 6 people. I’d never done anything like that before.
That’s how it started: saying yes to something I’d never done before. Getting out of my comfort zone and doing something that I had no skills or experience doing.
I woke up on the first day of this latest training and set the intention that we would have fun, despite being such a big group.
And I did have fun. There was energy in the room, there was creativity and there was excitement to learn new skills and use these skills to move forward.
Here are 3 things to try if you don’t quite love what you do. (And one of them isn’t to leave your job and walk away!)
- Say yes to something new. What could you say yes to today that you’ve never done before? What might you be really good at, that you haven’t even contemplated yet
- Don’t let fear stop you. There are probably a few things that you haven’t got the skills for. Yet. If an opportunity comes up, you have nothing to lose by giving it a try.
- Set an intention. These are different to goals. What’s missing from your work right now? Is it fun, spontaneity, collaboration, support? Go to work today and intend that it will show up in one form or another. But be sure notice it when it does 😉
Love what you do and do what you love.
Remember: Start small and build from there.
P.S. What 1 thing would change everything about what you do? It might be that this one thing shifts everything for you and you start to love what you do again! Give it a go, what have you got to lose?
