When I was a teenager and in my 20’s I hated work. However, I did like the independence it brought me and the “stuff” I could buy.
People learn a lot about themselves during those years. What you are good at, what you like, what you don’t like. And you start gravitating towards what you enjoy. And, if you enjoy it you get better at it and build a career.
I love what I do. I love the people I work with and my clients. Being productive and the reward from hard work, challenge is a big positive in life.
Don’t like working for someone? Start your own business. It isn’t easy by a long shot. But, if you have the patience to build something over time and are willing to keep your eyes on the successes rather than the set backs, then it can be done.
