It is true that some individuals define their happiness only based on having a job which they love doing. While I accept that this may suit many people, I believe that others based their happiness on other things besides their desirable job alone.
On the one hand, there are a variety of reasons why people should do a job which they really enjoy so as to be happy. One reason is that their desirable job meets their job satisfaction. As a result, this will encourage their motivation to try hard and enhance the level of job performance. For example, Marie Curie’s real joy was easing human suffering since her occupation was considered as a revolutionary for humankind. Furthermore, because of their passion for the job, they will never feel tired or stressful. It plays an integral part to guarantee a happy life.
On the other hand, inhabitants have different fundamental factors apart from the job to be glad. Firstly, many people believe that having a high-paying salary means happiness, no matter what the job is. Being offered a high pay allows us to meet human’s basic needs, buy essentials and even pay for the luxuries. Secondly, doing simple things which we love is another thing to define happiness. For instance, my father is contented with watching his favourite TV programmes whereas preparing a delicious meal for family makes my mother fell pleased.
In conclusion, it is certainly true that an enjoyable job can be a significant factor for many people to feel happily, but this is by no means the key consideration for true joy.
