I Could Do Anything I want
The Last Lecture
How often do we decide on a career based on it's money making ability alone?
When I was in high school I got a job at McDonalds because I really needed money. Since then I've changed jobs a couple of times but stayed within that job category because it was what I knew and it was easier. But publishing just one blog on Hubpages made me happier than getting paid at the job I have now. While I'm not going to quit the job I have now, it did make me start thinking about the choices I made.
When I was a child I loved drawing and writing stories. Sure all children draw during elementary school but my interest continued on through high school. I had stories and drawings scattered all over my room and devoted hours to it.Until I stopped for no good reason. The stories stayed with me though I stopped writing them down. I love my life and am not completely unhappy with my job. It helps pay the bills after all. I realized though that there is room to grow and listen to my childish dream. I'm taking a step in that direction but what about anyone else who caged their dreams?
There's lots of research done on early career choice and thousands of people have found happiness and wealth following the interests they had growing up. We call them anything from movie stars to athletes, nerds, slackers, firefighters and everything in between. No matter what you love doing there really is a job for you.
Fulfilling your purpose in life

Finding ones purpose in life is a quest that has existed for centuries. Read on for tips on how to find your purpose in life and how to work it into your goals.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
We are always asked that question as children and usually have at least a dozen different answers. As children we are expected, even encouraged to dream of the seemingly impossible but through high school we are pressured to make choices that would be the most successful and would bring the most money. But remember, as children we naturally only did what made us happy. We ran, screaming , for the simple joy of running. We wanted to be rockstars, baseball players, writers, dancers, zebras (maybe just me?) and astronauts. Remember our inner child who tells us nothing is impossible. This is actually more true today with the thousands of opportunities technology and our current society opens up to us.
Don't believe me? Do some searches on the topic and you find plenty of real life people doing what they loved as children. Examples include the guy who loved playing with Legos as a child and found a career with the company or all the veterinarians who simply loved animals as children.
Help Tips On Liking Your Job.
I'm not suggesting that if you don't like your job to quit and become a racecar driver. There are ways to work with what you already have. Maybe you love sewing your own clothes, painting, or singing? It's possible for your hobbies to actually make you money or get you noticed. Sell clothes you made or your paintings on ebay. There are little cafes or clubs that accept local performances and you never know, that can lead to getting paid performances.
Maybe you are still not sure what you're passionate about? Try volunteering to help out in different projects at work. This will gain you the appreciation of your coworkers and possibly allow you to transfer to another area of your job. There are dozens of ways to rediscover your passion in life
It's never too late to remember the wisdom you had as a child that told you to dream. So, tell me, what did you want to be when you grow up?
