Not every job is tailor-made to fit the individual that takes it. Many people in this day and age take jobs out of necessity, whether or not they like what they will be doing. It’s not a pleasant idea, but there are very little choices for people during these times.
When taking on a job that they don’t necessarily like, the main motivation is the paycheck at the end of the month. Get that money, save, work, repeat. This may go on for years and years, but eventually such a routing will become dull and soul-sucking. People may suddenly find themselves wondering why they are doing their jobs when they can be doing something else that actually makes them happy.
That’s normal. In order to find happiness in work, one should find their own purpose. What is it that they should be doing? Are they where they should be? By answering these questions, people can figure out whether or not they are headed in the right direction towards their goals. If not, then they can begin working on correcting their direction.
Perhaps they have been approaching their work the wrong way, applying more effort in their job and getting little to no yield. With their goals in mind, they can make optimizations in their strategy and work to get them further ahead. Perhaps their goal is somewhere else. Leaving a stable job behind to start on a new path is always terrifying, but now they have a chance to prepare for that massive leap.
People begin to move on their own paths when they find their purpose. Look for it, seize it, and head straight for your goal.
