Three Types of Jobs

There are basically three types of jobs in a job search. First you have the job/job. Job/jobs are just that, jobs. Often, they create cash flow. They are sometimes known as a plan B job. Plan B jobs, are jobs that meet an immediate need. We usually take a plan B when we need to generate cash to put food on the table and pay a few bills, nothing more. These job/jobs may, or may not be a lot of fun and one may have a difficult time getting out of bed in the morning to get motivated. In other words, you exist.

Secondly, there is the Great Job/Career. This is the type of job that you enjoy doing. You look forward to getting up and going to work. It may not pay you as much as you would like, but then money isn’t everything, right? You make do. You love what you are doing and you can’t wait to get to work in the morning and do it. The interesting thing about the Great Job/Career is how different it is for each one of us. For some people, working in a supermarket is a great job, and for others it might be a plan B job, or job/job. I have met forklift drivers who make $16.00 and hour and absolutely love driving a forklift. They look forward to going to work each morning and if you asked them what they would like to be doing in five years, they would tell you they will be driving a forklift.

Thirdly, and this is the big one, there is the Passion job/ Career. What’s the difference between the passion career and the great job career? The passion career will bring you COMPLETE ABUNDANCE, spiritually and financially. An example of someone who has a passion career, Jim Carey, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey to name a few. Often people in a passion career will make huge sacrifices, but that’s because they have such a passion for what they are doing that nothing else matters. For them work is a way of life, a holiday. It offers them complete total fulfillment.

Your comments are welcome.
