Have you ever heard someone say, “Find what you love to do.” Is that the secret to being successful? I don’t think so. I believe that successful people are willing to do things that others aren’t willing to do. Some times they love it. Other times they don’t. I’m sure Michael Jordan loved basketball! But I’d be willing to bet there were times that he didn’t love it. I’m sure there were times he would rather sleep in than get up and work out. There were probably times that he would rather take a week off then practice everyday.
I heard someone say one time, “Find what you’re curious about. Being curious is different than loving something.” Being curious and striving to learn, grow and get better at something is more important than just loving something.
I think the more curious we are and the more we work to master something, the more we will learn to love it. But there will always be times we have to push through the “feelings” of not loving something that we are doing.
Sometimes you gotta do things you don’t want to do!
What are you curious about?
