I heard this cliche “Do what you love, and you’ll never work another day in your life.”
And then I began to think: Work is the ability to get the desired results.
Why not to work for love instead? If you work for love, you’ll find what results the world needs and are able to give it.
Life is about giving after all.
Work to love.
“You can’t burn out as a giver, as long as you see the impact you create.” – Adam Grant
Remember though that you cannot give what you do not have. You’ve to take care of yourself first. It’s your own well being that limits your giving. The more you take care of yourself, the more you are able to give.
Work on yourself also to give more.
The more you give, the more you’ll receive in the end.
However, do not give to receive. Do not attach to the fruits of your labor. Attachment causes suffering.
Practice to give without an attachment. That is unconditional love. You’ll learn to love the process of giving, giving is joy in itself. And if something comes back that is joy as well.
Then life will be a pleasant surprise.
Work for (unconditional) love.
