No matter where I have ended up in life or how many problems I have faced as an adult, one thing that has always kept me on the right track are the life lessons that I have learned from my grandpa.
Back when I was a little kid growing up in the south my grandpa would always take me to work with him. Back in those days he worked as a certified HVAC repair tech in town, and he was one of the best repairmen this world has ever seen. That’s my opinion, at least. It seemed as if every house that we would drive to was extremely excited to see my grandpa, and he seemed just as happy to be there. One of the things that I learned from my grandpa as a kid that didn’t even have to tell me was it’s important to find a job that you are passionate about. While he was working as a certified HVAC repair tech all of those years he was just as happy as he would have been on vacation. He loved helping people, and he took pride in his work. Thanks to his lessons I have been able to find a job that i am extremely passionate about, despite having to pass up on quite a large number of other job offers that I had little to no passion in. Most people my age would take the highest paying job without question, but thanks to my grandpa I know that passion and being happy is more important than the financial side of things.
