We all want to be happy and be the best possible us, but millions and millions of us will say this, but then go back into work the next day or drop the kids off at school and just fall straight back into our daily routines. You may already be happy and if you are that is awesome. But today I want to give you guys a one little thought, idea or whatever you want to call it, to help you to excel in your life. In general the idea is – do what you are enjoy doing! What does it mean? Well, let’s see.
Sit Down And Think Of What You Are Great At
I am serious here, sit down, grab a note pad and a pen or even fire up the word processor. Sit down and think about all the things that you know you are darn good at. Are you good at math, writing, jumping jacks, playing Super Mario Bros, playing basketball? it does not matter what it is or how insignificant it seems. Just write down the things that you know for a fact you are good at, but make sure they are also things you enjoy doing.
Can You Or Do You Want To Take These Skills Further?
Now once you have the things that you are good at right in front of you, think about if you want to get better, or take them to a new level. For example if you are good at math do you want to be some kind of accountant? Good at writing? Then do you want to write a book? Good at Super Mario Bros? Then… Well you just play some more Super Mario Bros. No matter what it is, have a look at all the things you are good at and think about how you can make these work for you so that you can get more out of life. Make all these skills that you have work for you to make your life even better!
Work This Into Your Job Or Start A New Career!
So say you are good at writing and coming up with creative ideas. Then try and work this into your job. If your current position does not allow this then take the steps and talk to the people above you, let them know about your skills (that truth be told they would have had no idea about!) and how you think you can use them at work. If your job does not have any way for you to do this, then change careers! This may sound drastic, but if you really want to be happy and get the best out of life, then do what you love to do. Think about how you can incorporate your skills into the real world. So say you love basketball, chances are you are not going to play in the NBA, but use your skills to become a basketball coach. To excel at life you need to love what you do and do what you love and only you can make that happen!
