When you meet someone, the first thing you’re gonna hear is : – How is your job? Or – Do you like your job? Or – Is this the job you wanna do for the rest of your life?
And I feel like those questions are not just about the money. Well, as for me, my profession is translation. I’m doing written translations.
But to be honest, I always felt like there was something more, that I can offer to the world.
I mean, knowing languages is great, but there was always another part of me… Me … spending time doing thing I absolutely love.
Loving to draw may be not so unique, but the way I draw – it’s one of a kind in its own special way. And I realised…
The first thing about creating the “ dream job ” is :
1. Finding your talent.
And if you don’t think you have a talent – just ask yourself a simple question – What am I good at? Still don’t know what it is – well, take this opportunity to find it. Sign up for cooking classes, painting classes, learn how to sing, play some sports, find your passion and develop it! As for my personal journey, I started to visit Art school in my city.
And I also decided to express myself in digital world. I have to be honest – it’s tough, especially with all these new websites and apps… But I realised, that best way to achieve smth is to stop obsessing of “can nots” and start focusing on the “what can”. What can I do to improve myself?
And here comes 2nd the most important thing, which is :
2. Stay positive.
You know what? This is not gonna be easy. There were times, when I wanted to give up, when I felt lost… And I had to remind myself – I have to stay positive. That’s the key.
So from my experience I realised – once you find your talent – enjoy it, develop it, and when you’re feeling down – bring that feeling back into your mind.
Just be you. Because no one else can do it better. 🙂
