Have you ever been dissatisfied at work? Have you ever awakened in the morning and thought, "I don’t want to go to work today! It’s so boring. I hate my boss. I can’t wait to get another job so I can finally quit this one!"
What I’m going to tell you today may not be what you want to hear, but I promise you, it will totally eliminate those thoughts and feelings of dissatisfaction in your job. You will learn how to turn your boring, unfulfilling job into a satisfying and fulfilling job, and maybe even get raises, bonuses and promotions!
Did you know you actually have the ability to change your environment without changing your physical location? How? Your environment starts in your mind. It exudes out of your being.
Hating your job NEVER opens the vault to blessings. It will, however, decrease your productivity. It will open the door for you to gossip about your boss or to waste time on Facebook and surfing the web. Hating your job will never help you become proficient or to find shortcuts to help you raise the company’s revenue or make you more valuable in the workplace.
Don’t spend another day in a job you hate!
Studies have shown less than half of Americans are satisfied with their work. Economists say this lack of job satisfaction kills innovation and productivity — HELLO — which kills your paycheck and your chances for promotion. Here’s one secret to job satisfaction (that more than half of the population is clearly missing)!
Hating your job will cause you to avoid your boss and the people who are at the top, who actually need to see your good attitude, good work, excellence and diligence.
What if you hate your job, but you can’t find another one? I’m sure this is not the first job you’ve hated, and I guarantee if you go to another job, you will come to the same place of hating that job, too. It doesn’t matter if there is something you don’t like about your job. You must prosper where you’re planted.
The bottom line is, you cannot wait for your work to give you satisfaction; you must find satisfaction in your work.
When you hate your job or your boss, you complain about it. You become that person no one wants to work with. You become that person who does just enough so you don’t get fired, and your boss pays you just enough so you don’t quit.
Have you ever diligently worked at something that was not your job? How did it feel to complete something with absolute excellence? You did the work, but it didn’t feel like work. Maybe you work with diligence and excellence as a parent. Maybe you volunteer in a retirement center. Or perhaps you are the "room parent" in your child’s class at school. Whatever it is, you work diligently, and you get an awesome satisfaction and confidence no one can take away from you.
So today, instead of having the attitude of, "I hate my job. I don’t want to go to work today," focus on changing your work environment. (Remember, your environment starts in your mind.) Don’t think of it as a job. You are a partner in the company. This is your work, not just a job. You are contributing to the company.
Give it your best and work with excellence in everything your hands touch today. I guarantee that when you change your mindset, your attitude will change, and you will feel more satisfied. You will be more confident and people will want to work with you. Your boss will want to give you raises and promotions, and your whole work environment will change.
If you are an employer, it would be a great idea to pass this along to your employees today. Print it out and hand it out to everyone in your company, and even to your friends and family. You can also share it on Facebook and Twitter!
