[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″ id=”” class=”post-content” style=””][text_output]In school, every child has a dream. Some want to become doctors, teachers, police officers or soldiers. If you ask them it is usually because of something they admire. Maybe the uniform, status or even how well the job pays.  

This warped concept focused on financial gain has caused many to take positions that bring them misery later on. There is a man who operates a restaurant in South Korea, not very fancy, but crowds of people line up just to eat there. It isn’t because the food is exceptional, though it is good. The customers simply love how he makes them feel.

He doesn’t run his business with money as the focus but rather, he just wants them to be happy. He welcomes them and talks to them and his joy is seeing them enjoy his food. He makes them happy and that’s what makes the food so special. Think about it, who wouldn’t want to eat at that restaurant? There is also a small bank where the manager knows and welcomes every customer by name, whether they have a million dollars or one hundred! Everybody can feel that the focus is the customer and for that, they love that bank.

Too often doctors choose their profession because of the potential for profit. Consequently, they end up becoming horrible doctors who see patients as cash machines as opposed to sick people who need care. Blinded by money, they lose track of what it means to truly serve from the heart. This is also true for studying. If we study for our own personal gain, competition becomes fierce and relationships become superficial and difficult. Everything becomes a chore.

Strangely, volunteers who work for no money tend to be very happy, because they work for a purpose. Teachers also struggle with children who are not their own, in order to give them a hope bigger than they can imagine. Parents struggle with unthankful children just to see them become more than they were able to. A purpose is always more fulfilling. Profit brings temporary happiness but purpose brings a lifetime of fulfillment and joy.

It is okay to make a profit, but without a purpose, that profit will become a snare. It is better to have a purpose. Apple co-founder Steve Jobs said his purpose was to make, “A dent in the universe” and that he did. Find your purpose and ensure that it is greater than just profit.[/text_output][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc3R5bGUlM0UlMEEuZW50cnktdGh1bWIlMjBpbWclMjAlN0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBtYXgtaGVpZ2h0JTNBJTIwNDAwcHglM0IlMEElN0QlMEElMEEucG9zdC1jb250ZW50JTIwJTdCJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwdGV4dC1hbGlnbiUzQSUyMGp1c3RpZnklM0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjB0ZXh0LWp1c3RpZnklM0ElMjBpbnRlci13b3JkJTNCJTBBJTdEJTBBJTNDJTJGc3R5bGUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
