Have you ever felt so tired of the job that you got that it made you feel like you are already living to work?
Well, this is one of the worst things that you can ever feel if you got a job that is not in line with your passion.
The same is true if the course you pursued in college is something that you do not like.
Instead of being something that you look forward to every day, it becomes a burden that makes you want to give up just anytime.
That is why it is very important that you choose the career path you’re taking very wisely.
If you think you are getting the exact same feeling mentioned above, read further and learn more about the three disadvantages of working for money and not for passion.
You become less productive.
Working for money solely and not doing it because it’s what you really want makes you become less productive.
If you love what you are doing, you will not have to force yourself to do the things that come with your job.
You will gladly do them and all the best ideas will come out from your mind naturally – something that will be very difficult for you to experience if you are not really into the job you got.
If you are working for passion, you will be enthusiastic to get involved in the pitching of ideas.
If you are just working for money, a small workload will seem like something that would take you forever to finish.
Also, if you choose to work for your passion, you will not mind being asked to render extra hours of work.
This might even make you feel more excited. Therefore, working for your passion can help you earn bigger amounts of money, without even having to stress yourself out.
You will never feel that sense of fulfillment when you accomplish something.
If you are working for money and not for your passion, whatever you might be able to accomplish – be it big or small – will never be able to give you a sense of fulfillment.
What’s worst is that you will keep on thinking about your real passion and it is going to give you frustrations, no matter how high you could have already soared in the career path that you have pursued.
Indeed, it will be difficult for you to feel content with everything that you have achieved if you do not love what you are doing.
You’ll get tired, eventually.
Of course, the bottom line of all of this is that you will get tired, eventually.
If you feel that you are just working for money and that you have to crawl on your way to work every single day, you will end up feeling burnt out.
The next thing you know, you are already writing your resignation letter to your boss and you’re already on your way to another company, with the hope of being able to find a job that is less tiring than your previous one.
It is, indeed, very important that you think about your decisions very well, especially when it is about your career.
Working for money and working for your passion, at the same time, is something that not a lot of people get to enjoy, but by making the right choices, you will definitely find your way to a high-paying yet an enjoyable long-term job.
