Are you working in a career that reflects what you are passionate about?

When I was younger I remember someone telling me to never allow the things you are passionate about to become your business. I found it sound advice at the time and duly separated my career from what my true passions were. (So I became an accountant!)

I now look back and recognize this was misguided advice that stopped me from doing more of what I really loved doing. In fact what I should have done is define the things that make me happiest and organized my career around this.

To this end I recently met someone who has aligned their passion with their career. Candice has launched an incredible website and I invite you to check out her inspiring story:

Launched my new website

The reality is when you find your true purpose in life the things that give you the greatest joy are in alignment with this purpose.

So in a perfect world ask yourself what would you love to be doing that will allow you to work in the area of your greatest passion?

This is something I've been thinking about a lot lately. Starting to put more energy into those things which I'm in comlete bliss doing without money being the driving force... and yet opportunities are starting to present which makes it more likely my passion could well also be my career. Dreams do come true...
