Are You Trading Your Soul for a Paycheck?

You know what I’m talking about. Are you trading your soul for a paycheck? Do you go to work every day because you have to or because you want to? Are you doing work that makes you happy or are you doing work that just pays the bills? If you bound out of bed every day eager to get to work, that’s awesome, you can safely skip this article and go back to work. But if you hate going to work or you’ve become numb to that hate because you’ve grown accustomed to working for money instead of love, read on.

Hear me now. You did not incarnate to spend any portion of your day doing anything that makes you feel hate, anger, anxiety, dread, or resignation.

You do not have to work for money. You can work for love.

You do not have to work to pay the bills, take care of your family, or have nice things. You’ve been conditioned to think you do.

So why did you incarnate then? And how are you supposed to feed yourself, take care of your family, and have nice things?

The answer is super simple. Do what you love in a manner that helps other people achieve their goals or solves a problem for them, and you will receive value in return. This is the path to happiness.

Instead I encounter people in my readings who do what they’re good at so they can earn money so they can do what they love on evenings and weekends. This path leads to dissatisfaction, unhappiness, and dread. It sometimes leads to anxiety, anger, and health problems.

If you are just reaching adulthood and are trying to figure out what to do to earn money, I implore you to instead find a way to do what you love in a manner that provides value to others.

If are already in a job you hate, I implore you to rediscover or admit to yourself what you’d really love to do with your day, with your time, and find a way to transition to it in a manner that provides value to others.

It’s not enough to just do what you love. You must find a way to turn what you love into something that is of value to others. They will then pay you to do what you love. Doesn’t that sound better than doing something you hate so you can pay the bills so you can have fun on weekends?

You don’t have to quit your job tomorrow, but you do need to get in touch with your passion today. If it’s been so long that you don’t know your passion, or if you want some help figuring it out, read my article, How to Find and Ignite Your Passion.

If anything on your life path is causing you distress or unhappiness, you must recognize it and find the path that leads to happiness. It is always there, but you must be willing to look for it and walk the path when you find it.

How long will you trade your soul for a paycheck? Until you retire? You deserve better. Your soul deserves better. Don’t leave your soul at home when you go to work. Instead, let your soul sing. Share your love and passion with the world. It’s better for everyone.
