Mike Rowe of the Discovery Channel show Dirty Jobs gave some words of advice on finding a job recently, and his statements have gone viral over the last few weeks. A fan posed a question to Mike about finding a job that is a perfect fit, and Mike’s response is honest, funny, and spot-on! He points out that:
” Happiness does not come from a job. It comes from knowing what you truly value, and behaving in a way that’s consistent with those beliefs.
Many people today resent the suggestion that they’re in charge of the way the feel. But trust me, Parker. Those people are mistaken. That was a big lesson from Dirty Jobs, and I learned it several hundred times before it stuck. What you do, who you’re with, and how you feel about the world around you, is completely up to you.“
