I'm currently a senior in college, I'm taking classes that I'm not interested in and I want to drop out because I have no motivation to learn.
How would a Buddhist approach dealing with work and motivation.. whether it be waking up to work a job that you dislike, waking up to take classes that you dislike.. etc.
It seems like the majority of folks don't do what they like to do on a daily basis and have miserable lives because of it.
How would the Buddha remedy this type of suffering of desire, wants, likes and dislikes?
Could it be that the things we do have no quality in and of themselves? And we just attach the quality onto it and suffer because of it, in some sort of deluded way? Is it really all in our mind? Could the answer lie in 'how' we approach external situations and not really 'what' the situation is?
Thank you so much for your time.
