Doing what you love for living is everyone's dream, but it's easier said than done. Most people take any job that is good enough and paid well. When we do such thing we think it's temporary and in couple of years we won't have any financial troubles and will find that dream job we've always wanted. But eventually we find ourselves working decades on a job we hate and still struggling financially or even lose our job to somebody whose dream job was your job. The truth is there is no perfect time for anything and delaying your dreams will hurt only you. So if you've decided to bring some changes into your life and find a job you will love here are some tips how to do that:

2. Be Ready To Work Hard
Achieving your dream job requires working really hard for some period. Especially if you're going to start your own business out of your hobby, for example. You have to be ready to sacrifice some things like your time and money to start something really valuable. In any case changing your career is risky and you must have courage to take this step. But if you truly believe in yourself and what you do this won't be a problem.
3. Find A Role Model
Depending on your field of work, I'm sure, there are plenty of people who've gained success in that industry. Read their biographies and interviews. You don't want to repeat what they did to become successful because what worked for them won't necessary work for you. But you need to understand how those people think. It actually works even if this successful person you admire is not even in your field of work. The thing is the more deeply you understand how successful people think, the more likely you'll be successful at finding your dream job.
4. Learn How To Sell Your Brand
When you are searching for a job, any job, you need to know how to sell yourself on an interview. This works for your dream job too. You need to learn how to sell yourself, your ideas and services. In the beginning selling would be more than 90% of your job, so you need to know how to do it. It doesn't matter what services you want to provide or what product you want to sell. Learn about marketing and think about your brand. 5. Write A Great Resume And Cover Letter
Resume is the first thing employer sees. Resume creates the first impression and if you want to get that job the first impression needs to be not just positive but amazing. Remember that it's essential to customize your resume and, especially, cover letter for the job and company you're applying for.
6. Don't Compromise
