I know your probably wondering what I mean, by the best job is no job right? What I mean is just what I said, the best job is not a job but something that you love doing endlessly and strategize to generate an income that can sustain your life and those you love. Well, some folks might say, I hate my job working at say a fast food joint but I do it to sustain my self and my family. This is an example of just getting by and as some may say “scratching” and “clawing”. Ironically, there are people who really enjoy serving others in many capacities. Won’t it be great to get some of those people preparing your “Big Mac”? I agree. So, why then won’t employers hire those people who really want to serve without wanting to get rich quick and die in the process? Simply put, people are not trained and encouraged enough to pursue things that they truly love to do as well as the ability to bless others with their craft. With our economy and world as it is, we must strive as a people to encourage one another to defy the methodical approach of this world and the false hope of the “American Dream”. We must dare to have the biggest faith and follow those dreams we dreamt and thought of as a child. Those were the times believe it or not that we thought the most clear and the most endearing,brightest dreams of them all. I know what your saying, it’s too late for me, or what can I do now with what is going on around us in the world today: unemployment rates booming, crime rates increasing, government lay offs, student loan debts sky rocketing, all leading to a broke government system and a depraved society on a whole. Well, I say one by one we can all change the way we think, and dare to go back to dreaming and making those dreams a reality. I know this sounds so cliche’ but if you really try it you will be surprised to see what faith, hard work and determination can mean for your life and those you love. Aren’t you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Sometimes in life we will experience times of drought and then the rain comes and it really pours! Now, may be a time when you cannot see your way through a situation or simply cannot see a way at all, but if you choose not to give up, you can succeed with another blow. I know this is a hard time for everyone, but we all truly need to reassess our priorities in life and cut out some unnecessary tasks and some unnecessary relationships that’s taking up your time and hindering your growth. It is time to get serious and stop blaming everyone else for your lack of will, and your lack of wealth and lack of a wholesome life. It’s time to get your life! The best job is really no job, it’s finding what you really are naturally good at and enjoy, while developing that gift. As a bonus today, allow me to give you a reminder for whenever you feel down and hopeless:
“When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low, and the debts are high, And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns, As everyone of us sometimes learns, And many a failure turns about, When you might have won had you stuck it out; Don’t give up though the pace seems slow, You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out, The silver tint of the silver clouds of doubt, And you never can tell how close you are, It may be near when it seems so far; So stick to the fight when your hardest hit, It’s when things seem worse that you must not quit” – (c) 1995 Raymond L. Greenberg Art Publishing, Chester NY No. 0138-620.
Now let’s get back to dreaming and believing…with faith, hope and love all things are possible.
Blessings and Love,
