Discovering if you’ve found the right job for you has a lot to do with how good you feel about yourself. It’s about knowing how to read your feelings of joy and happiness or, on the contrary, frustration, and even bitterness.
So take a look at your inner self, take a journey of introspection and see if you can match any or all of these 5 feelings with what you do for a living:
Your work is your passion and then it becomes your obsession. When you get obsessed about what makes you passionate you will always pursue becoming the ultimate best at it! People flock to you, you are recognized, and you are the center of the work you do. This ultimately drives your success.
2. Meaning and purpose
When you find that what you do gives you a higher sense of meaning and purpose you acquire a cosmic perspective, you become a big picture thinker. You know why you’re doing what you’re doing and this higher sense of belongingness with something deeper in the work you do is what keeps you coming back for another day.
3. Joy and Happiness
You recognize the fruits of your effort as a complete joy and fulfillment. That feeling of knowing others are happy because of your hard work and success — nothing beats it.
4. Goodbye boredom
No matter how challenging, you don’t feel that your work is taking a toll on your body and mind, instead feel that it is nourishing who you are and helping you learn and grow every minute.
5. Inner Satisfaction
Yes, we all need to work to make ends meet, but the truth is, deep down inside we also seek warmth in our hearts. That feeling of peace and satisfaction because we genuinely feel fulfilled as a human being. When we work for an inner satisfaction — an eternal reward — any amount of external compensation, in any form, never suffices.Original article 5 ways to know you’ve found a job that’s right for you By Sai Santosh
