How? Work, of course. There’s no other reliable way.
We’re often told that work is bad. True, it can be unpleasant. Yes, it can take time. Sure, even cleaning the bathroom suddenly sounds like fun when we’re about to get started on a daunting project, but the fact remains that WORK IS GOOD.
And it’s good for you! It accomplishes things and makes goals and dreams come true. It makes you strong and able to conquer any obstacle. The ability to set goals and achieve them even makes you more attractive and inspiring.
How can you learn to love work? The first step is to do some of it. Learn that even unpleasant tasks aren’t so bad once you get started, and finishing up feels fantastic.
Second is – whenever possible – to choose work that you love and that seems meaningful, something that makes a difference.
Third is to make your work environment as pleasant as possible. Find someone to support you in your goals. Get along with your coworkers as much as possible, and, if possible, get them enthusiastic about the task at hand.

“There is no substitute under the heavens for productive labor. It is the process by which dreams become realities. It is the process by which idle visions become dynamic achievements. Most of us are inherently lazy. We would rather play than work. We would rather loaf than work. A little play and a little loafing are good. But it is work that spells the difference in the life of a man or woman. It is stretching our minds and utilizing the skills of our hands that lift us from mediocrity.” – Gordon B. Hinckley
