There's nothing worse than going to a job every day that you loathe.
I've had more than one career path and enjoyed them all.
Find something that interest you, something that maybe has been a hobby or something you did when you were younger and enjoyed.
Let me give you an example of something I did.
Many many years ago I was in the FCA, in the 3rd Field Signals Corp. I had had an interest in electronics and ham radio since I was a kid and this was an opportunity to learn more.
I learned proper radio procedures, morse code, map reading besides all the military stuff like weapons, marching etc..
Also from a young age I have had an interest in photography and had a small dark room set up and developed and printed my own b&w film.
And like any kid, I was fascinated with planes and flying.
Move forward many years. I have been working in hotel/restaurant/bar management. I'm sick of the politics at th company I was working and quit my job.
As I was combing the want ads for a job I saw one that read, Aerial Photographer trainee wanted.
On a whim I applied. As did about 300 others.
I was called for the first interview. Made it through to a call back. At the second interview I was taken into their flight planning office and given a bunch of aerial photos and a bunch of maps. Find the spots in the photos on the maps.
You have one hour.
Lo and behold, out of nowhere, the training I did in the FCA all those years ago came flooding back. I matched all the photos to the correct maps in about five minutes.
The chief pilot was more than impressed.
Anyway, after the interview they said we will make our decision by next Tuesday (one week away).
The following day I sent them a fax thanking them for the interview and reassuring them of my interest.
The following Monday I sent them another fax, saying that I was anxiously looking forward to some good news the following day.
Tuesday afternoon I got a call. The owner said, "I have good noews and bad news".
The bad was that even though they had advertised for a trainee, a fully qualified aerial photographer applied for the job, so they hired him.
However, they offered me a job working in the photo lab and film editing dept. until another flight job came along as they were so impressed by my interest in the job and didn't want to lose me. So basically they hired me even though there wasn't a job for me.
As it turned out, the guy they hired didn't work out and was gone in a fortnight.
I got a great training at the company (they had a really good reputation I found out, although I didn't know it at the time I was hired).
After a number of years with them I went on to work freelance for myself and traveled all over and made a small fortune.
So the answer to your question is yes, you can.
And when you are passionate about what you do, it's not work.
Work is a four letter word.
