I have a secret – I love American Idol.

Over and over in the show you hear contestants proclaim how being a performer is what they love to do – it’s their dream.

But you know what? I don’t think doing what you love is about living your dreams.  

I think doing what you love is about being who you are.

Your dreams are just one way to gain insight into yourself.

And doing what you love for a living isn’t just about the work or the business or the job …

It’s about doing everything in your life the way you’re naturally inclined to and choosing only those things that make you light up.

That could be the work you do, but it’s also about the food you eat, the people you’re friends with, the television shows you watch…

Doing what you love is EVERYTHING about how you choose to spend your time and your energy.

It’s how you live out your whole life.

Why would you waste it doing anything that caused you misery?
