One of the most important life lessons that I learnt from my life is that people are everything in our life. The people that surround us, we are friends with, people who help us grow are the most important assets that we can invest in.
Being stuck in a job that we don’t love is one of the worst experiences for everybody involved. It is better to quit and find a passion that excites us! That does not bore us! All that we feel that we lack in the skills department can be more than made-up with passion. Passion drives us, encourages us, and pushes us to up our skills.
Let me tell you a story of the barber who was bored with his work and chose to change it up.
A barber was quite bored with cutting hair over and over again. He pondered long and hard about what would excite him, what he wanted to do with his life. After a long time of going back and forth, reading books, watching talk shows etc. he finally decided to record videos of the haircuts. He started enjoying it more than he thought possible and eventually his career as a hairstylist was only to support his main career as a video maker.
The barber had finally found his passion!
It is important to take life lessons from the barber’s life. He turned from working to not having to work a single day, as he started doing the thing he loved the most.
