Love Your Work – There is a World of Opportunity

It is wonderful to love your work because there is a world of opportunity.

No matter what kind of work you do, you should find a way to love it because there is opportunity in your work. A person who works for their own business controls the destiny of that business and the destinies of the people employed, this means there is opportunity. A person who works for a small company has the opportunity to come up with amazing ideas to help the company grow. A person who works in the home has the opportunity to make the home a better place for those who live in the home. No matter what kind of work you do, there is opportunity, seek it out, work towards it find a way to make wonderful things happen where you are.

Almost every person who works thinks there are things that can be done better. It seems to be a natural part of being employed to think that your way of doing things is better than the plans established methods. This situation creates a defining moment. A person of good quality and character will look for ways to get that better idea into action. A person of lesser quality will not try to get the new idea into action, but will complain about how things are going, never striving for improvement. When a person has the right mental attitude, she will look for ways to make things better wherever she finds herself. A person with the right mental attitude looks for the opportunities in every situation.

Not every company will be receptive to every idea, even if they are good ones. Not every opportunity is for every organization. Sometimes exploring the world of opportunity means that you take your ideas on the road. In the work place this may mean that you may have to take your ideas with you to a new place of employment. In other cases it may mean that you start a new business so you can put the ideas into action. If you are a person who works at home you will not leave and start a new home if your family members are not open to your idea, but you may consider starting a home based business or writing a book so that others can benefit from the opportunity you have discovered.

  • I find opportunity daily in my online work. How can you not? It helps to have the outlook of knowing great things are out there if you want them. Even when I have to do my military duty, I try to find an opportunity to make that experience and that day a great day, even if it's just realizing that I get to spend a few days with some of my favorite people.

    • Amiyrah, I love your attitude toward it all. Sometimes instead of waiting for opportunity to knock, we have to go look for it.

  • A great reminder and great series about making the best out of our jobs and making sure that we love what we do. I completely agree, especially in looking for opportunities in everything that we do.

  • I believe that we can love any job that we are tasked with. It's just a matter of finding the THING that makes it important and special to you. If you work at a fast food restaurant, maybe it's holding to the fact that you like people and want to make others feel good. So, as you're taking their order, you smile, are kind and polite, and encourage them to have a good day when you hand them their food. Life is way too short to work a job that you DON'T love!

  • My job is full of opportunities. My boss looked at my strengths and even rewrote my job description, tailored the position perfectly to what I can bring tot he table.

    • That is a wonderful thing and a good example of using the job you have to create the job you want. Congratulations.

  • There are all sorts of opportunitiea. My previous job gave me the opportunity to see what a bad working environment really is. My current position has given me the opportunity to ease into being a leader.

    • I like the point you made here, some places are opportunties to move on from!

  • I agree 100%! My problem is finding too much opportunity than I know what to do with, lol.

    • Wow, Christine, that sounds like one of those good problems!

  • Truth! They say if you love what you do then it does not feel like work ... hoping to be in that boat soon! Although I am very grateful and enjoy the work I do now ... I can't say I am in love.

  • YOu are so right, we must love our work. If we don't love it or see the possibilities in it we will miss many opportunities. Thanks for the gentle reminder to do what we love!

    • Thanks for stopping by! I am glad I was able to write something you liked.

  • It is such a blessing to love what you do! Thanks for sharing...everyone should have a chance to really love what they put their hands to do, and to go with the creativity that God has gifted them with to make it better ;-)

    • It is a blessing to love what you do and it is a blessing that you can find joy and opportunity even with a job you do not love.
