How to Love Your Job

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 1.53.03 PMThere are many reasons that you might hate your job, but no matter what they are, you’re not the first person to have gone through this. You’re not alone. Keep an open mind about possible solutions for your problem. Think it through, communicate with your co-workers and employer, and be ready to change your attitude. You’ve probably heard it said before, but it’s true.

No one can make you feel inadequate without your permission

This is true for a lot of things—no one can make you feel unhappy without your permission, no one can make you feel angry without your permission, and so on. Your attitude may very well be the ONLY thing you CAN change about your job and that’s really ok. It’s up to you as to how you react to things. Learn to look for the positive in each situation in instead of the negative. You’ll find that it truly will make a big difference.

And if all else fails, is your present job really worth the loss of your sanity and your health? Stress is probably the leading preventable cause of poor health in the world today.

If you’ve tried everything to improve your job, and nothing has helped, do NOT be afraid to seek out a new position elsewhere. Remember, a job is merely a means to pay for your life. Your life is not something that you should be giving to your job!

So until (and if) you make that big change, do your best to adjust your attitude. You might even discover that your job isn’t as bad as you once thought.
