In the current economy, you are happy to be employed right now, but you are bored out of your wits and lack motivation. You accept the fact that you are not in your ‘dream job’. Are you feeling guilty about it? Don’t! In fact, many people feel the same way.

A Gallup poll taken in 2011 found that 70% of American workers are not "engaged" in their work, and 18% percent of them hate their jobs enough to actively sabotage their company. Another study shows that when it comes to how most people view their jobs, only 49% are satisfied. Here are some quotes to help you do something you love and motivate you to leave a job you hate.

"Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life."

When you can’t turn your passions directly to profit, you can use them to guide you to find work that engages you in the same way. Think about when you do something you enjoy - cooking or carpentry.

The time flies. When you do something you hate, on the other hand, time slows down, and our torture is prolonged. It is vital to find a balance, therefore, find work that doesn't feel like labor, and your work will feel more rewarding.

"All great changes are preceded by chaos."

-Deepak Chopra

Making sacrifices for the career you want is difficult, but sometimes to create the change you're looking for, you have to stir up a little chaos. Change is scary and often hard.

Sometimes it hurts, but try to remember that the sacrifice often leads to the best times. For you to progress to your dream career, you need to accept the hard times to attain fulfillment later.

"Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new."

- Albert Einstein

Life is an experiment. Sometimes your theory proves true and sometimes not. Even if you don’t get the outcome you expected, you learn, and you keep going.

Likewise, finding a dream career isn't an exact science. You'll probably have to try a few things — and even fail — before you find work that you love. Perseverance is the key to success, together with not being afraid to fail.

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life."

- Steve Jobs

Maybe your mom expects you to be an engineer. Perhaps you spent your entire youth saying you'll be a lawyer. Or maybe you've already trained to be a doctor, only to find you can't stand the work.

The truth is: Finding fulfilling work is about you; the only person who has to live with the choices you make is you. Your mom will get over you not becoming an engineer.

"Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck."

- Dalai Lama

While studying, you may think it's easy to get a career with a straight-shot trajectory to the top. In reality, it's a lot more meandering. You don't always get the job, promotion, or the opportunities you expect.

You rarely get exactly what you wanted. Sometimes you even get laid off. That is not a bad thing because what it means is that you get something else: Something you didn't expect to get. It may be an opportunity for something great, so don't just toss it aside.
