If anyone knows anything about working, it's Mike Rowe, the man who created "Dirty Jobs" and "Somebody's Gotta Do It." So it's no wonder people turn to him for career advice, like Parker Hall, who wrote the TV reality star about the trouble he was having finding the right job that would make him happy. Specifically, he wanted work that offered excitement and adventure but also steady pay because he was "easily bored."

Well, Rowe shut him down fast. "Stop looking for the 'right' career, and start looking for a job. Any job. Forget about what you like. Focus on what’s available," he wrote on his Facebook page in 2014. Once Hall landed a job, Rowe continued, he should make himself indispensable. And above all, the young man should stop worrying so much about happiness.
"Happiness does not come from a job. It comes from knowing what you truly value, and behaving in a way that’s consistent with those beliefs," Rowe continued. In fact, too many people think they can't control the way they feel. But they can. "That was a big lesson from Dirty Jobs, and I learned it several hundred times before it stuck. What you do, who you’re with, and how you feel about the world around you, is completely up to you."
Smart advice, Mr. Rowe--and worth resurrecting again! Here's the entire post for your reading pleasure.
