DOING IT BECAUSE YOU LOVE IT

doing-what-you-love

We live in a world where value to what one does is given way more than the person herself. We do things we love but sometimes the question arises, is it useful? according to today’s standards if it doesn’t look good on the resume its not worth doing. We re always trying to do stuff which will either add some value to our resume or make us popular in our circle. If the thing we do fails to garner some positive attention or appreciation from others we slowly stop doing it. It happened with me too,I learned playing the guitar a bit but then as i didn’t have an opportunity to play it outside my house slowly i stopped practising it and now i have stopped playing it altogether. I started this blog thinking that my thoughts would be read and appreciated but after  eight months i lost interest seeing no feedback. But why is it that we should do all things for the sake of appreciation from others, why don’t we do things because we love doing them and no other reason?

Acknowledgment from others about our work should be a factor motivating us,but it shouldn’t be the whole reason why we do it. We should liberate ourselves from the mindset of ” I HOPE THEY LIKE IT”,  we should do things purely because we love it. As we start working having a liberated mindset devoid of the worries about opinions people have, we will see that our work will get better not only that we would start loving life even more,worrying less about external rewards and enjoying the happiness produced on the inside…….

”DO THINGS FOR THE LOVE OF DOING THEM,NOT FOR THE LOVE THE PEOPLE”

  1. This really reminds me of the “Intro” by Cheryl.

    “What makes you itch? What sort of a situation would you like?

    When we finally got down to something, which the individual says he really wants to do, I will say to him, you do that and forget the money, because, if you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid

    And so, therefore, it’s so important to consider this question: What do I desire?”

    I think it’s a really great lesson to live by and your blog touches on the most important part. Do what you LOVE!
