For some of us, jobs might support your lifestyle, but it rarely supports your wellbeing and happiness. Perhaps we all are frustrated and desperately seeking the perfect job.

Why limit ourselves to only the job we do, why not look at every aspect of our being. Every minute we are doing some kind of work, be it studying, cooking until we love what we do, it is a cumbersome activity.

Mostly all of us make our work jobs a burden.  If only we love what we do, we might increase the possibility of financial and social benefits. Every job will have some aspects that will be unpleasant and some that you will enjoy, but we must learn to differentiate between the job and the way you do it.

If you are feeling, chained and unchallenged in your work, read to learn how to love your work in order to achieve great results.

How to Fall In Love With Your Work?

1. Do Not Be Passionate About The Job, Be Passionate About How Well You Do Your Job

As discussed above, it is not essential to love the job in its entire form; you can love some part of it.  For example, you can love making presentations for the meetings, but not the meetings themselves.  Give your best shot at what you can do well.

 2. Be Inspired By Your Fellow Co-Workers

You owe to your family, you owe it to your team but above all, you owe it to yourself to do well. If a member of the team is unhappy, it is projected on the entire team. Show it to your kids, your team members, there is no harm in discovering your hidden talents.

3. Marry Your Work

Being content in the job can be a beautiful affair. The glow that you would have on your face is similar to the glow you would have when you are in love. And when you combine these two, there is nothing more appealing than a person who is content and in love with their work.

4. Make Adjustments

You need to find out what is causing you discomfort. Weigh what is more doable- making changes or quitting? Adjusting and making some changes will help you stay focused and be a great alternative to quitting.

5. Seek & Develop Passion Around Your Work

Discovering your passion around your area of work can make you happy at work.

But if your current job is not your passion, seek what exactly is your true passion?

What would make you happy?

What would you rather do even if you are not paid for it? Do not take this lightly! Give it some serious thought. Would you find happiness in the alternative? Contemplating these questions will help you see the truth.

6. Bypass The Excuses

Never be knocked down by some excuse. Always expect what you deserve. Sometimes expectations might pull you down but never be disheartened. Be more than what is expected of you.

7. Stay Positive & Look On The Silver Lining

Most importantly, never let the negativity tie you down. Always be positive. Think about the benefits and the positive side of taking the next step. It helps you to concentrate on the good work.  Keep your eyes on the prize. It can be a promotion, a better pay package, or just a smile of your family members.

Remember being positive is necessary and at the same time being pragmatic is desired. So make it a habit to jot down both the up/downsides of a particular goal and work accordingly.

If the boss does not appreciate you, you are underpaid, your company might not be ideal; all of it might be fine because you are the right evaluator of your life.  Be passionate about your life and family, have the right balance and things will fall into the right place. Passion and love make way for great work and contentment.

Loving what you do and great work are directly linked; make sure you love being you.
