Some people get tired of their work easily. Sometimes, others get too bored. Perhaps, people are doing something that does not interest them. Are you doing what you love? what keeps you in your work today? I love teaching... so even if salary is just too small here, i still teach because this is where I find happiness. And I feel successful in it.

Welcome to myLot. Yes! I loved my work currently. I an MT and I am transcribing some medical records of some doctors from a recognized hospital in the US. I really loved my work very much. Even though my work is kind a tiring and stressful, I still tried to overcome it. I just enjoyed what I am doing. Like you said, even though your salary is just small, you will still have the urge to work hard, feel happy, and of course, you feel success from it. If you have this motivation to work hard, all of the stressful experiences will be gone and the true success and happiness will prevail because you loved your work and you loved what you do everyday! That's it. Have a nice day! God speed!

Yes, it's natural that we feel tired because we are humans. Feeling tired because of the work and feeling tire OF THE WORK are two different things. :) am I stating the difference clearly? You're lucky to be doing what you like.

Yes I am absolutely doing what I love. I'm the type of person who doesn't care what other people would say. Because for me, I didn't exist to please other people but me. And I only live once, so I gotta make it right so that I won't end up regretting:-)

Most of the time I do, If I get board in the things that I am doing, I tend to find another. Teaching is a great profession, you can always augment your income by other home based jobs. If you need one I have a great discovery just now, it is related to teaching so I guess you are in the better position to earn from it. PM me if you are interested.
