I'd Rather Be A Failure At Something I Love Than A Success At Something I Hate -George Burns

I’d Rather Be A Failure At Something I Love Than A Success At Something I Hate

-George Burns

Too often, we stay in soul-killing jobs because we can’t see any other option. Or we fail to do the thing we most want to do because we’re afraid.

So we do things we don’t want to do because it’s “safe” even if we despise it.

There is no honor in that. There is no fulfillment in that either.

The true path to fulfillment in life is doing what you love in service to others.

Yes, even if you’re not “successful” in your eyes or anyone else’s.

If you’re in that position right now, working a job where your happiness is gone, replaced by boredom, complacency or downright hatred, ask yourself what you’re willing to do to build a better life.

If writing a book is not your thing, try this exercise instead.

Grab a pen and paper, set a 30-minute timer on your phone, and list all the things you would love to do instead – even if you think it’s unrealistic in this moment.

Build a list of potential jobs that excite you. Circle your top three.

Which one do you think you can transform into a new career the fastest and the easiest?

And if you need a little nudge to step out of your comfort zone, book your free 30-minute “Turn My Dreams into Reality” clarity call with me. I’d love the opportunity to help you find your new path forward.
