Love what you do

Some people is do their jobs just to get paid. I guess I'm just one of them.

Many success stories of life-changing are coming from a complete stranger. To be truth, until now, the only person I remember being brave enough to leave the job and be an enterprenuer is my pre-marital mentor, whom I've lost contact with.

Reading others success story, always makes me wonder, when I will have one? Or, will I ever have one?

For years, I still looking for what I love to do. And keep wondering, if I do what I love, will I still be able to love that, should I do that for years? What if I had no talent in what I love, what if, my talent and my interest is not the same thing?

I'm afraid to die. Because I'm afraid the angels would tell me something like "you don't use your talent, If you do *this job* you will be excel in what you do, too bad you don't even try it."

Even if reading those article feels like I'm torturing myself, I still love to read inspirational stories, just to get the feeling that someone out there, live their dream, love their jobs. And maybe, hopefully, my days will come too..

Here's one Steve Jobs story:

And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle. ~Steve Jobs
