Do You Hate Your Job?

How would you like to earn money from doing something you love? If you love your job then that is great news.  However, if you dread getting up every morning and long for the weekends then it’s time you did something about it.

So many are in shit jobs just to pay the bills, consider how many hours you are spending doing something that does not satisfy your needs.  Imagine instead spending those hours doing something you love, something you are passionate about, wouldn’t life be great?

What did you love to do when you were a kid? For instance, my daughter loved photography as young as five, hard to believe but I actually have a photo of her at the age of five taking a photo.  I remember years ago telling her that she was a talented photographer and her reply back then was “the camera does the work I just click the button”.  She did however come to realise that this was her passion and now earns a living from photography, she doesn’t earn a fortune but enough, the big thing is SHE LOVES HER JOB.  It isn’t about making a fortune or being famous, it’s about being satisfied.

I had another client who was a factory worker but loved fitness, he now runs his own gym classes and of course is very happy.

I always ask my clients what their talents are and most say they don’t have any, until we start digging a little deeper and then they always pop up, here are just a few, Music, Painting, Writing, Sport, Fitness, Creating Gift Cards, Dancing ….. the list goes on.

Simply by bringing these passions into your life may make your shit job not so shitty after all.  As I said its about being satisfied and by realising your true passions you will come alive.  You will feel invigorated and motivated to make the dream even bigger and who knows you could end up making a living from it.

Don’t get stuck on the grid working 9 to 5 unless you love what you are doing.

It is never to late, its not that hard, it is there inside you, don’t wait any longer.

Make a list right now of your passions, then consider ways  you can bring these into your life right now, without quitting your job.  You CAN make the time, all you need is the desire.

Don’t sit back and plod along, look within, realise your true purpose and GO FOR IT.

You can do this !

Comfort Zone !!!

Comfort Zone

If  you dread going to work every day and spend your week longing for the weekend then you are probably in the wrong job.  It is true, believe it or not that some people love their job and enjoy going to work, yet there are others that have real trouble believing this.  They really believe that a job is not to be enjoyed, that it is a means to an end, it pays the bills etc.   The difference is, those that enjoy their job are those that chose to do something they love.

What usually keeps us in an unsatisfying job is the comfort zone.   This is a dangerous place to be! You feel safe, there is no pressure, you know what to expect every day and there are no risks.   But at the end of the day, you probably  feel worn out, de-motivated, lethargic with no zest for life.  It is not long before all of these symptoms start to impact on your whole life,  such as relationships, fitness, self-confidence and socialising.

I can tell you now, there is not one single person that stepped out of their comfort zone and regretted it!

It’s usually fear of the unknown that keeps us trapped but once you take the first step your whole life will change for the better.

Exercise 1 

Close your eyes and visualize your resignation.   However you would complete this by letter, or email, visualise every step.  See what you see, hear what you hear and feel what you feel.  Visualise every detail.   Now take a big deep breath in and then breath out letting go of all negativity.  Open your eyes.  What are you feeling?  Is it fear or is it excitement?

Exercise 2

Make a list of:

  • Everything you have to gain by staying
  • Everything you have to gain by moving
  • Everything you have to lose by staying
  • Everything you have to lose by moving

The answers will speak for them selves. what is the positive intention of staying in a dead-end boring job that offers you no future?

What is the positive intention of staying in a boring dead-end job?

Once you are in a job you enjoy you will be motivated, have more energy, more confidence  and all areas of your life will improve.
