Benefits of Work;

Working is fundamental to our wellbeing and gives us a chance to use our gifts and skills to support ourselves and others, thereby fulfilling our potential and purpose; You can be working in a job for convenience or in your area of purpose.

There is a difference between doing a job (vocation);  and working in your area of purpose or passion;



Your area of purpose is usually something you care deeply about (passion), enough to make a notable difference. This passion keeps you motivated and driven against all odds. While a lot of jobs are often something people do just to earn a living or to make ends meet but not necessarily passionate about. However, working at a job can be your path to get to your area of passion. Therefore your job is still beneficial if you have a plan of direction.

Most importantly, one is always better off working any legitimate job than doing nothing.

In seeking to get into work, it is vital to identify what your core strengths are. Knowing this will help you plan your direction in work even when you have started in an area of vocation you are not necessarily passionate about – This ensures you are not stuck in this vocation and subsequently end up frustrated and unfulfilled.
