Why Do You Do What You Do?

I have recently changed careers.  I really liked what I did for the last ten years, but when I decided to go into real estate recently, it was because I had wanted to do this for years, but never made the move.  In this day and age, it is extremely hard to leave a steady income and a career that you completely understand and are good at, to take a chance on a new career based on commission.  I can honestly say that I made a good decision.  I am doing something that I really enjoy. I am working very hard, which I enjoy and I am learning so much every day.  I can tell you what I will be working the hardest at though, and that is to not lose the enthusiasm for the job that I feel right now.  I see so many people going about their jobs with such a feeling of routine that they exude boredom.  I do not ever want to be one of those people.  I see that in some of the real estate agents that I have met, but you see it in every career.  I don’t want to be so cynical that I think that everyone is one notch above an idiot.  I want to treat each person that I meet with respect, whether they are a potential client or not.  I want to be directly honest with everyone that I deal with.  I want to help you understand a process that can be daunting and confusing.  I am very lucky to have decided to work with a group of people who care about what they do and care about other people.  I am comfortable that I will learn how to do the job correctly and with compassion. I would be very interested to know how each of you keep yourself motivated to go to work every day with a great attitude, so please feel free to respond.  Thank you in advance.
