Follow Your Passion And Go Get Your Dream Job

I dare to dream out loud. If I fail, at least I will know I tried. If I succeed, then I will inspire more people to follow their dreams. I am Josephine, The Dreamer. (Like Joseph in the Bible).

Follow Your Passion 


quit my job in 2015.

I am not sure I have mentioned that I studied Accountancy at the university on this blog before. Yes, I am an accountant by profession. But if I have to work as an accountant, it will be a choice of my head and not my heart.

Accounting does not give me the satisfaction of stretching myself and exploring my personality. It's boring. How about being the accountant of a radio station? That'll be a "wow!". I'd be able to sneak into the studio. :D

You may want to ask me why I studied the course in the first place. That's a story for another day. One thing I'd say for now is Accounting does not require the vocational flavour of creativity, born instinct and natural ability of arts that I crave.

I do have friends who are working in a bank, making big money and are doing very well. Some of them are having fun at the job and I am so happy for them. However, I have a deep, inexplicable knowing that I am meant to do something else, something greater. I can't explain it. This deeper knowing does not come from my intellect, but from my very soul. It is a spiritual something-something.

I am naturally a creative and passionate person. Being passionate is a good thing, but it can be a difficult trait to deal with. Passionate people love to do the things they feel strongly about. We are expressive, intuitive and engaging. While we may be perceived as calm, reserved, or even shy, we have an inner flame and passion that can shine brightly if given the opportunity.

And I am dying to shine!

2016 started roughly for me. Roughly, in the sense that I knew not what the year will be like. I literally had no plans (job wise). I just know it is going to be a glorious one. The first day of the year was on a Friday. TWTW had scheduled a Bible study for that night. As we were discussing, Tope mentioned that a man must have a job before approaching a woman. Then I said, "job and purpose isn't the same thing tho". I said that because my previous job was taking me farther from purpose.


Just when we were connecting with our hearts and sharing the light on how a job can be aligned with God's purpose, my mum called me to ask about my plans of getting a job. I was shocked. A little depression set in. Could this be God's leading or the devil tempting me on this very first day of the year?!

Within the same minutes, one of my besties told me he'd been meaning to tell me I needed to get a job.
Ha! Why does everyone think I'm jobless and that I'm not serious with my life? Is it because I haven't started making big money from blogging and voice-overs yet? Lol. 

Anyways, I have decided to get a job in 2016. A purposeful job.

All of you saying my voice is sweet and lovely, oya come and get me a job. *rme*

I smiled as I found myself updating my CV last week. I know the exact type of job I want now. I know because I have found my purpose and I want my job to be in sync with my passion for fufilling that purpose.

Are you searching for a job that brings satisfaction?
Are you walking on your path to fulfilling your dreams?
Do you need to maintain a balance in your life?
Are you embarking on a journey of self-discovery?

Then we can walk together to work it through. This is one of the articles I have no idea why I write them. I really don't know how I am so comfortable sharing my dreams with you. It's crazy. Really crazy.

I have a strong passion for passionate people. For dreamers. For those who refuse let go of what they love. For those who can risk everything to follow their God-given visions. Let's build a network - #TeamHeartRays.




I know for sure that it is God who has made this light shine in our hearts. (2 Corinthians 4:6). The world needs it. And we have to give it . . . to live.

You and I know there is more to life than working 9-5.

You know because you are destined for something bigger and you are driven by something deeper. Your friends might think you're crazy and you feel awkward trying to explain your dreams to "normal people". Your parents don't get it. They are asking you a lot of questions. Everybody thinks you are not serious. This is because . . .

YOU ARE DRIVEN BY PASSION.

Passion-driven people are always misunderstood. They just don’t understand why we do what we do. They don't. But let's not take it to heart when they try to discourage us. Dare to fail. Don't think you can't when you fail the first time. Keep going even when nobody seems to care.

Remember all things are possible to those who believe. (Mark 9:23)

Sweetheart, don't stop dreaming. Keep believing in the infinite power that lies within you. Keep setting high goals that are scary. Stay committed to the process of getting better at what you do and who you are. Maintain the atmosphere of gratitude every single day. Keep giving your gift to the world.

YOU WERE BORN FOR MORE.

I can't explain what I was thinking when I tweeted that one of my followers will get a dream job this year. Is it you? 

It's me! I believe it with all my heart. I'd have followed myself if that option was available on Twitter.

Welcome to a new week. May doors be opened for you where you never thought there would be doors. Amen.

Have a fab one.
Stay inspired.
