VOCATION HITCH-HIKING™. . . or taking whatever job that happens to come your way.
-Version2.0, by Michael Iva
• Your parents suggest that you pursue something to make them proud, or comfortable, or something they wish theycould havedone (without consideration of your aptitude or desire).• Your friends were doing it, so why shouldn’t you?• You hear that other people were successful at doing something; so if others could do it, you could too.• You just settle for whatever is easy and available.• It seemed like the best thing for you to do at the time.• It was an offer you couldn’t refuse.• You just fell into it.• You thought you could make a lot of money doing it.• You thought it would be cool, or prestigious, or the ‘in-thing’ to do.• You had to make a living doing something, and this seemed as good a way as any.• You were at the wrong place at the right time, and took what appeared to be an opportunity.
You just wasted one third of the rest of your lifetime.Many people seem to look for jobs with less of a future and more of a present. They do not know there is a hugedifference between the jobs they want, and the jobs they deserve (or earn), or what type of job is the right job for them.People do not seem to understand that all worldly success depends on serving and pleasing others. Everyone has toserve someone to be successful. No one can profit just because they think they deserve to, others have to think so too.Most people rarely do what comes naturally, or what is right for them to do because of their innate talents, aptitudes,and skills. How happy and fulfilled can you be if you are doing something that is not what you should be doing…something that is boring…something that does not fit your point of view, and mindset and interests and talents andskills and aptitudes?You can’t be! So, put your thumb back in your fist, and find your vocation the correct way
