Never Work A Day In Your Life!

I bet you’ve all heard this saying: 


“If you love what you do you’ll never work a day in your life”.


I love the sentiment behind this saying but, I have to say that I disagree with it completely.  I absolutely love what I do.  In fact, I have my dream job.  How lucky am I?


While I do feel very fortunate that I have my dream job, I don’t feel “lucky” at all.  It was a result of years of dedicated practice and all the sacrifices that came with that.  It was a result of making a major life decision to switch careers and open my own business.


And, while I absolutely love what I do, I am working hard at it everyday.  I’m working not only on the day-to-day aspects of running a business, but also working hard on maintaining my Karate training and improving on it.  I’m working on improving my teaching techniques, coming up with new drills for class, and keeping students on task so they can continue to make progress in their own training.


It’s a lot to juggle at times, but I do it because I love it and I find great value in it.  But make no mistake, it IS work and a lot of it.


The same could be said for your Karate training.  I’m sure nobody keeps showing up at the dojo because they hate it.  I’m sure each student is gaining some value from their training in order to continue.  But it’s hard work to do that each week.  On days when you may be very tired, it will be a physical challenge.  Maybe other days your brain is fried and class will be more of a mental challenge.  


You might LOVE your training, but it is WORK!


So, nice saying, but waaaaay overused (in my opinion!).
