This is a great piece I came across by Mike Rowe, presenter of TVs Dirty Jobs (Trailer Here), in which he goes around working with people in jobs most people would think are horrible.  The piece to hand stems from a guy who writes to Rowe asking him for help in finding his ideal job. The original full article was found on Top Right News and I have included both letters below.

Too many people buy things they don’t need with money they don’t have to impress people they don’t know. No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying. If a person wants to be a part of your life, they will make an obvious effort to do so.  Think twice before reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay.
The most painful thing is losing yourself in the process of loving someone too much, and forgetting that you are special too. As we grow up, we realize it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones. Making a hundred friends is not a miracle.  The miracle is to make a single friend who will stand by your side even when hundreds are against you. Giving up doesn’t always mean you’re weak, sometimes it means you are strong enough and smart enough to let go and move on. Don’t choose the one who is beautiful to the world; choose the one who makes your world beautiful. True love isn’t about being inseparable; it’s about two people being true to each other even when they are separated.
While you’re busy looking for the perfect person, you’ll probably miss the imperfect person who could make you perfectly happy. Every single thing that has ever happened in your life is preparing you for a moment that is yet to come. There isn’t anything noble about being superior to another person.  True nobility is in being superior to the person you once were. You will never become who you want to be if you keep blaming everyone else for who you are now. Love is not about sex, going on fancy dates, or showing off.  It’s about being with a person who makes you happy in a way nobody else can.
Anyone can come into your life and say how much they love you.  It takes someone really special to stay in your life and show how much they love you. Love and appreciate your parents.  We are often so busy growing up, we forget they are also growing old.
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you. When someone tells you, “You’ve changed,” it might simply be because you’ve stopped living your life their way. When you’re up, your friends know who you are.  When you’re down, you know who your friends are.
Don’t look for someone who will solve all your problems; look for someone who will face them with you. No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life.  Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs.
Learn to appreciate the things you have before time forces you appreciate the things you once had. There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go. Happiness is not determined by what’s happening around you, but rather what’s happening inside you.  Most people depend on others to gain happiness, but the truth is, it always comes from within. If you tell the truth, it becomes a part of your past.  If you lie, it becomes a part of your future. If you don’t like something, change it.  If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it.

DEAR HEART OF INNOVATION READERS: Just in case there is someone you want to send some love to on Valentines Day, here's the love.
If you are trying to create something new, reinvent yourself, or accomplish a seemingly impossible goal, know that "things" may get worse before they get better. If you're on the prowl for inspiring quotes you can use for work, your book, speech, website, news report, blog, proposal, kidnap letter, or time capsule, look no further.
If you want to deliver a meaningful, memorable message in your organization, consider delivering it as STORY, not a pep talk, harangue, slide show, case study, or download of data. As a facilitator of the creative process, I continue to be astounded by how few organizations have any kind of process is place to PAUSE, reflect, and make sure they are coming up with the right questions. Since 1986, every innovation workshop I've facilitated has included a poster of Albert Einstein.


Somehow, Einstein's smiling countenance inspires everyone in the room -- no matter what their social style, gender, or title. The only thing I find more fascinating than this is the incredible amount of powerful quotes he left behind.
We just received this very nice piece of feedback from the President of Radio Woodstock, Gary Chetkof. Everything I ever wanted, I achieved by writing it down, creating a video, or painting a picture in some way.
This article, with permission to be shared by Jack Canfield, is a great start to getting what you want in the following year and beyond. One of primary reasons most people don’t get what they want is that they aren’t clear about what they want.
After decades of research into how the human brain works, scientists now know that for our brains to figure out how to get what we want, we must first decide what we want. When setting our goals, it’s important to include a few that will make us stretch and grow to achieve them. Once you are clear about what you want, write them down and turn each item into a measurable objective. For instance, if you were to tell me that you wanted more money, I might pull out a dollar and give it to you. Similarly, your boss, your friends, your spouse, your brain, God, and the Universe can’t figure out what you want unless you tell them specifically what it is. As soon as you commit to a big dream and really go after it, your subconscious creative mind will come up with big ideas to make it happen. You’ll also discover that when your dreams include service to others – that is, accomplishing something that contributes to others – it accelerates the accomplishment of that goal.
Jack Canfield, America’s #1 Success Coach, is founder of the billion-dollar book brand Chicken Soup for the Soul®and a leading authority on Peak Performance and Life Success. I’ve spent this last year trying to figure out the right career for myself and I still can’t figure out what to do. The opportunities are enormous, and as a “hands-on go-getter,” you’re qualified for the work. You may choose to ignore them and I wouldn’t blame you – especially after being compared to a 42 year old woman who can’t find love.
Similar to thoughts by Tony Robbins about not trying because then you cant fail, so your brain tries to protect you form the failure. It is a great video and if you can spare 6 minutes of your life to watch it, then do so without hesitation. Procrastination and the want to happiness is two of the most important steps to conquer when trying to be successful. Good things come to people who wait, but better things come to those who go out and get them. Whenever you see a successful person you only see the public glories, never the private sacrifices to reach them.
A successful man is one who can lay a firm foundation with the bricks others have thrown at him. The whole secret of a successful life is to find out what is one’s destiny to do, and then do it. Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you. There are two types of people who will tell you that you cannot make a difference in this world: those who are afraid to try and those who are afraid you will succeed. Thinking should become your capital asset, no matter whatever ups and downs you come across in your life. You may only succeed if you desire succeeding; you may only fail if you do not mind failing. The best reason to start an organization is to make meaning; to create a product or service to make the world a better place. I find that when you have a real interest in life and a curious life, that sleep is not the most important thing. The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself. When I dare to be powerful – to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid. If you want to make a permanent change, stop focusing on the size of your problems and start focusing on the size of you! Successful people do what unsuccessful people are not willing to doDon’t wish it were easier, wish you were better. The number one reason people fail in life is because they listen to their friends, family, and neighbors.
The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don’t define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Success does not consist in never making mistakes but in never making the same one a second time.
I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it.
There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.
Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don’t really matter. Success is…knowing your purpose in life, growing to reach your maximum potential, and sowing seeds that benefit others.
Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all. You measure the size of the accomplishment by the obstacles you had to overcome to reach your goals.

Indeed, what you already know and already do may need to disintegrate in order for the next form of your expression to be born.
It was always specific from the color and model of the truck I wanted to the business organizational chart I envisioned. But to maintain your momentum through the year, you need to set powerful, crystal-clear goals. Others will recognize what they’d like to have, but when they can’t see how it’s possible to get what they want, and they dismiss their desires as foolish and unattainable. Once we lock-in our desires, our mind and the universe can step in to help make our dreams a reality.
On the other hand, if writing down 21 goals seems like a lot, remember that we can have a mix of long- and short-term goals. These might be learning a new skill or trying something that is uncomfortable and maybe a little frightening, such as public speaking. In the long run, the greatest benefit we receive from pursuing our dreams is not the outer trappings of fulfilling the dream, but who we become in the process. Houses burn down, companies go bankrupt, relationships end, cars get old, bodies age and fame wanes, but who you are, what you have learned, and the new skills you have developed never go away.
You would probably protest, saying “No, I meant a lot more money, like $20,000!” But there is no way I’d know how you’d define “more money” unless you tell me, right? You’ll start attracting the people, resources, and opportunities you need into your life to make your dream come true. One bite at a time.” Steady progress in bite-sized chunks puts even the most audacious goals into reach. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will add value to my readers. But after reading your post a second time, it occurs to me that your qualifications are not the reason you can’t find the career you want.
She complains about being alone, even though her rules have more or less guaranteed she’ll stay that way.
The reality is you can never predict what will happen in your life, so go with the flow…. The more they succeed, the more they want to succeed, and the more they find a way to succeed. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them.
If you believe in yourself and have the courage, the determination, the dedication, the competitive drive and if you are willing to sacrifice the little things in life and pay the price for the things that are worthwhile, it can be done. You dont need to remember them all, but ask yourself some of these questions and see where the they take you. In this excerpt he is talking to two Internet Entrepreneurs, one who was believed to be the first person to make $1m in ONE DAY online. I have included the full 45min video below the shortened version for those who want to watch more.
He hardly knows which is which; he simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing.
And if it seems to take you off the track, don't hold back, because perhaps that is instinctively where you want to be. I've had periods in my life when I've had a bundle of ideas come along, and I've had long dry spells.
For example, in the financial area, you may have a short-term goal of paying off a $5,000 credit card balance, as well as a long-term goal of amassing a net worth of $5 million dollars.
You want lots of “change” and the “freedom to travel,” but you need the certainty of “steady pay.” You talk about being “easily bored” as though boredom is out of your control. That was a big lesson from Dirty Jobs, and I learned it several hundred times before it stuck. While if you aren’t in a good place, then you try to look for happiness in the wrong places. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. Similarly, when someone is failing, the tendency is to get on a downward spiral that can even become a self-fulfilling prophecy. All it means it that you are deeply immersed in the often very challenging process of creating something new. You want to keep both goals present in your mind, even though you’ll be working more actively on the short-term goal first.
Examples of breakthrough goals include publishing a book, starting a business, getting on Oprah, winning a gold medal at the Olympics, or getting elected president of your industry association. What you do, who you’re with, and how you feel about the world around you, is completely up to you.
Click through the slide show above to get the perspective from the folks who know -- our clients. About how her other friends had found their soul-mates, and how it wasn’t fair that she had not. I want a career that will always keep me happy, but can allow me to have a family and get some time to travel.
I figure if anyone knows jobs its you so I was wondering your thoughts on this if you ever get the time! It comes from knowing what you truly value, and behaving in a way that’s consistent with those beliefs.
