Where Is The Love?

This week, there’s no quote I’m reaching to for inspiration.  I actually was sitting here doing a favor for my cousin and I realized that a lot of people don’t love what they do.  Even those who are in their field of expertise don’t love it.  This is evident because they can’t see it changing the world.  No matter what you’re doing, you should see yourself working to change this world for the better so that you can leave a legacy of greatness.  That doesn’t mean that your job itself is going to change the world but you doing that job might provide your children with the money necessary to be able to go to college and make something of themselves.  That is why my great-grandfather could work on his garbage truck for years without complaining.  He knew that he was setting my father up to go to school.  He loved doing what he was doing not because of what he was doing but because of the opportunity that it would provide.  He knew that my father would one day change the lives of those around him and, as a result, they would change the lives of those around them and it would create a never-ending ripple in history.  Knowing that he had that responsibility made what he was doing worthwhile.  So find a reason to really love what you do so that, on those days you can’t see the point of going to work, you know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel that will shine far beyond your days on this earth.
