Exclamation Are You Doing What You Love?

For as long as I can remember, I wanted to be independent and own my own business. When I graduated from high school and went to college I majored in Business Administration. My first real job was a sales job selling Rainbow vaccuum cleaners. Marketing and sales are in my blood. They are my love. They are my passion. Today, I own a successful internet marketing website.

What about you? Are you doing what you love? Are you doing what you're passionate about? If you aren't, why not?

Wow...not one single person in here besides me is doing what they love? That's so sad.

I love researching and writing my blog. It is a lot of fun to see the stats go up every month and find out that yes, people are interested in the information I put on it. Since the blog is about mobile websites, the content is pretty new for most people. it's also fun when I am invited to guest blog for other people. Thanks for asking the question!

i think not everybody is so lucky as you that can do things you like,but in my opinion,even though you can't do the things you like,just try to like what you're doing at the moment!

Lucky? Let me tell you how lucky I was. I grew up in the projects - dirt poor and on welfare. But I didn't let that hold me back. I didn't let poverty stop me, because I wanted more out of life. So, I worked hard and made my own way. I created my own destiny.

I think it's sad that so many people accept and/or settle for doing things they don't like. Life is too short for that crap!

Oh well, Que Sera, Sera!

mayba you didn't understand my opinion. I said you were lucky,because you can do what you like now.And also I think most of time life and society a little helpless,the only thing we can do is try our best to adjust ourselves and to adapt the circumstance,instead of let the circumstance adapt to you! It's just a paranoia.
Interest is more or less can be cultivated.

Oh, I understood you perfectly. I just don't happen to agree with you. Life is what you make it. No more, no less!

When I was a kid I thought to myself that I will be a talk show host. Cuz I love PR and talking about anything under the sun. But it never happened, instead I am a Radio Jock and I am loving it. My goal now is to put up my own radio station in the future. Being a DJ is really my passion now, I love being a DJ.
