What we must decide is perhaps how we are valuable, rather than how valuable we are.

Get yourself to love it

If you want to get yourself to do it, get yourself to love doing it. Whatever you love to do, you’re always eager to do.

But how do you find the way to love doing something that may not seem so lovely? Make yourself fully aware of the reasons why you do it.

Even with the most unpleasant job, there’s a positive reason somewhere within you why you have chosen to do it. Understand and appreciate that reason, and you’ll have something to genuinely love about the job.

In some way, everything you do is connected to what you greatly value. Otherwise, you simply would not do it.

Instead of resenting what you must do, rejoice about what you can do to make a meaningful difference. Instead of being ashamed of yourself for avoiding the task, be delighted with yourself for getting out in front of it and getting it done.

If you do what you love, you’ll soon become successful. When you truly love what you do, success is already yours.
