To find a career to which you are adapted by nature, and then to work hard at it, is about as near to a formula for success and happiness as the world provides.

When you love your job, you will work on yourself so you will be better for your job. You will love it enough to be good at it. If you aren't doing that, you don't love your job at all; you love going to that place where you hang out and they pay you for it. Larry Winget Quote Details

More quotes about:

Your economic security does not lie in your job; it lies in your own power to produce - to think, to learn, to create, to adapt. That's true financial independence. It's not having wealth; it's having the power to produce wealth. Stephen Covey Quote Details

Avoid working directly under somebody you don't admire and don't want to be like. Charlie Munger Quote Details

More quotes about:

Someone graduating from college thinks, and is told, that he needs to get a job, as if the important thing were becoming a member of an institution. A more direct way to put it would be: you need to start doing something people want. You don't need to join a company to do that. All a company is is a group of people working together to do something people want. It's doing something people want that matters, not joining the group. Paul Graham Quote Details

Did you get your money by fraud? By pandering to men's vices or men's stupidity? By catering to fools, in the hope of getting more than your ability deserves? By lowering your standards? By doing work you despise for purchasers you scorn? If so, then your money will not give you a moment's or a penny's worth of joy. Then all the things you buy will become, not a tribute to you, but a reproach; not an achievement, but a reminder of shame. Ayn Rand Quote Details

In small organizations, your true abilities regarding producing or selling the organization's product or service tend to be most important. In large organizations, your bureaucrat/office-politics skills are paramount because there is little individual responsibility for results within the organization. It's too hard to tell who gets credit or blame, so office politics wins out. John T. Reed Quote Details

What personal qualities are virtues in one career are vices in another. You need to identify your strengths and weaknesses and get to the career situation where your strengths are considered virtues. John T. Reed Quote Details

This is the source.

A sturdy lad from New Hampshire or Vermont, who in turn tries all the professions, who teams it, farms it, peddles, keeps a school, preaches, edits a newspaper, goes to Congress, buys a township, and so forth, in successive years, and always like a cat falls on his feet, is worth a hundred of these city dolls. He walks abreast with his days and feels no shame in not 'studying a profession,' for he does not postpone his life, but lives already. He has not one chance, but a hundred chances. Let a Stoic open the resources of man and tell men they are not leaning willows, but can and must detach themselves; that with the exercise of self-trust, new powers shall appear; that a man is the word made flesh, born to shed healing to the nations; that he should be ashamed of our compassion, and that the moment he acts from himself, tossing the laws, the books, idolatries and customs out of the window, we pity him no more but thank and revere him;—and that teacher shall restore the life of man to splendor and make his name dear to all history. Ralph Waldo Emerson Quote Details

It is wonderful, if you can find something you love to do in your youth which is big enough to sustain your interest through all your adult life. Because, whatever it is, if you do it well enough (and you will, if you truly love it) people will pay you to do what you want to do anyway. Richard Feynman Quote Details

The price one pays for pursuing any profession or calling is an intimate knowledge of its ugly side. James Baldwin Quote Details

More quotes about:

The market pays money in exchange for expertise, time, and effort. Anyone unhappy with the exchange rate, has the ability to add more value in terms of expertise, time, or effort. It's a simple equation. The fact that you don't like it or agree with it doesn't matter and won't change the equation. Is it always fair? No. But is it always true? Always.
