Choose your work carefully
- You are what you do because…
- The more that you do what it is you do
- Do you have a job or do you have a vocation
- Jobs just become the killers of your dreams
You must choose your work carefully. People say that who you are is not what you do. They may be wrong.
You are what you do because you spend so much time doing it. Between sleeping a third of your life away and working possibly more than another third of your life there’s not much life left over. You probably chose your job because you needed to make money.
The more that you do what it is you do the more you become it. This is true because you give it your time and energy and, therefore, you give it a consciousness. Eventually that consciousness fills your personal life with the reality of your work life.
Do you have a job or do you have a vocation? A vocation is a calling, while a job is a prison. It’s referred to as a “calling” because it calls out to you. It’s what gives you your unique voice in the world. It’s what makes you wake up each day with a passion for living.
Jobs just become the killers of your dreams. It may take many people a long time to realize their calling. You may have to try and quit many jobs before you find one that’s considered a vocation or a calling. If you are lucky enough to have a calling, you must embrace it because that’s how you will serve the world.

COMMENTARY: People say they have to have a job because they need to pay their bills. I’ve got news for you – they are not your bills. Here’s the proof. If you decide to stop a service that sends you one of those bills each month what happens? What happens is nothing. That bill never comes. So where does it go? It doesn’t even exist. The bills you claim to possess are only there as long as you agree to them and allow them to be sent to you. So, they’re not your bills. They are temporary agreements that in many cases can be stopped immediately. Ray and I only have bills that we like, the ones that we are happy to get because they provide us with something that we value. If your bills are a burden and the reason you stay stuck in a job, then get rid of them. Only have bills that you are happy to get because they support your passion for living.
