Sometimes, people accept a wage in return for a job that they don’t like or even hate. And the idea of having fun while at work seems to have disappeared entirely. However, because you’re going to spend a lot of your time doing your job, it’s important to find joy. Though landing our dream jobs isn’t always possible, it’s good to check in with yourself to see if what you’re doing is serving your life. Just in case you’re looking to shake things up, here are some exceptionally fun careers to consider.
Video Game Designing
If you love everything about video games and they make you happy, how about getting involved in the industry? Perhaps the most intriguing and exciting job is that of a video game designer. It’s basically creating a world of fantasy and possibilities that will bring joy to so many. What’s not to love about that? Of course, you’ll need to have the creative and technical skills to be successful in this industry. Many universities offer courses and even degrees in this type of technology. And the gaming market is booming and always wanting stronger, unique games.
It’s true that going to the gym isn’t fun when you’re not used to it and don’t know what you’re doing. However, when you are trained and have a passion for all things fitness, training others could be an exciting, fun way to make a living. There are also plenty of different ways to help others in this industry, depending on your skills and desires. Consider owning your own gym or fitness business if you want to be in charge. If not, you could simply work for a gym or other fitness company.
There are many opportunities to be the best in this field if you get the right training. For example, look into getting a cycling instructor certification. Once you have it, you’ll be able to lead classes privately or for a fitness company. You’ll have fun doing so and know that you’re having a positive impact on people’s lives. Perfect!
I can personally tell you that event planning is full-out fun and one of the most fulfilling jobs I have ever had. The only reason I stopped doing it was because it was more work than I could handle after I started homeschooling my daughter. I highly recommend this career if you are creative and detail-oriented. Though there is a lot of work with this job, it can be extremely gratifying, especially if you plan weddings. That said, those brides can be pretty demanding, too. There are plenty of other types of events to keep you busy if you don’t want to do weddings.
If you love traveling and the excitement that comes with seeing new places for the first time, consider a career in the travel industry. Though there are many jobs in this industry, becoming a tour guide or travel writer could be just your cup of tea. This is another career path that could take you in many different directions, depending on what your passion is. There are jobs that actually take you all over the world and ones that are more local. Some jobs include travel agent, cruise ship service, flight attendant, and many others.
I believe your job should be satisfying and make you smile when you think or speak about it. If it’s not doing those things, consider making some changes. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of shifting some things around to create more interest and passion. But if that isn’t enough to make you happy, it’s OK to take your career in a completely different direction. Of course, do this carefully and make wise choices.
