The truth is when you enjoy what you do, it will be easy for you to excel and increase your earnings.
Learning to love what you do begins with getting to know yourself. Here are some ideas for connecting with what motivates you.
- Take career and personal assessments
- Ask family and friends what you are good at
- Look at the areas in your life that are fun and bring you joy
- Explore new opportunities

The self-discovery process connects you to your essential values, strengths, and assets. When determining your career path focus on your skill sets, practice, and get as much experience as you can. When you do the work that you enjoy; work will be more meaningful success will come easily.
Do not beat yourself up or be in a hurry. It may take a little time to learn what you are good at and what you enjoy. Be patient and resist the urge to follow the crowd.
Also, do not be ruled by past failures. Instead, consider them as new sources of information instructing you on what you need to change to be successful. When you can learn from your failures without beating yourself up or giving up, every step you take is a step toward a life that you love.
