I remember watching a commercial about something we couldn’t live without. For the life of me, I can’t remember what it was.
Anyhoo – the point is, in the scene, there was a well dressed man getting on an elevator. You could tell he was going to work because of the way he was dressed and the fact that he had a briefcase and a newspaper under his arm. He seemed extremely happy and successful at his job. Right then, I knew I had to get a job where I wore a suit and had an elevator ride to my desk.
…and I did.
Truth is, dry-cleaning is expensive and elevators suck. Especially when you have to eat at your desk and the ride up with your lunch is constant stopping and starting. It’s friggin’ torture.
In reality, that successful guy on the commercial is probably a waiter/actor who’s just happy he got the part.
It’s taken me about twenty “professional” years to figure out, happiness is more than a large paycheck. And a job should be something you love to do. If you can marry these two together, then that is true success. I wish you the best of luck.
