I wasn’t really a fan of this expression until I heard Venus Williams elaborate on it this morning.
Very simply, she said she advises young people she meets to
“Love what you do… because it’s going to be a lof of work”.
Now.. this makes a lot of sense to me. It adds the elements of time, commitment, discipline, achievement, and dedication to Love, work, and career.
It adds many more to levels to how we approach the decision of where we will put our efforts. To how we will generate money and income.
It takes our heads out of the clouds when we only hear “Love what you do!”.
“Love what you do… because it is going to be a lot of work” brings reality and sensibility into our choices. It prepares us.
Taken from one of the number one Tennis players in the world, who has met and talked with world class athletes, celebrities, and business professionals, to me her words carry a lot of weight!
Thank you Venus for your advice!!
