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 !

MAKE 2019 YOUR YEAR TO SHINE

The start of a new year is a good time to look deeper, to examine your life and see what needs to change.  This is why we tend to make  New Years Resolutions, which often we don’t keep to.  This is probably due to them being a ‘should’ rather than a ‘Want’.

The ‘should’ is what you feel is expected of you rather than what is important TO YOU.

When we hear from others what we  ‘should do’…. this then keeps nagging at us and we can then start to feel discontent. It is not about anyone else it is about YOU.  Only YOU know what is right for you, it does not matter what anyone else thinks, listen to your higher self and follow your instinct.

  • Are you happy in your job?
  • Are you happy in your relationship?
  • Are you happy where you live?
  • Are you happy with your weight/fitness?
  • Are you following your passions?

 

Once you start to look at all these areas you will become more in touch with what changes, if any, that you need to make.  These may not be life changing, they may just put you more in control of your life and reaching your dreams.

It is very easy to slip into a mundane existence and just plod along.  Making small changes in all areas of the above could improve every area.  It may be that you do need to make big changes, only you will know.

If this is the case, look at what is stopping you from making these changes.

  • Is it fear of stepping outside of your comfort zone?
  • Is it fear of the unknown?
  • Is it fear of failure?

Don’t let fear hold you back.  It is better to regret doing something than to regret not doing something.

It may be that you are in a place due to others’ needs rather than by choice?  Most of us are trapped in prisons of our own making caring too much about everything that does not really matter. You have one life so make sure you live it rather than just exist through it.

The only constant in life is CHANGE.  You can’t see into the future so don’t assume you can, don’t let “What ifs” prevent you from taking back control.  Only YOU know what is right for YOU, look within, if it feels right just GO FOR IT!

Warmest wishes

Spring has Sprung!

Its Spring time once again, although it doesn’t exactly feel like it, however I am sure warmer weather will be with us soon!!

So it’s that time of year once again where you start to think about clearing out the old and starting a new.

You start working on the house, on the garden, planning holidays etc. but do you ever take a step back and take time to think about you.

For instance, when did you last ask yourself, Am I happy? Am I fulfilled? Am I satisfied? Am I motivated? Am I heading in the right direction? Do I know where I want to be this time next year?

If you answered yes to all the above then well done, you are on your path, you know what you want and how to get there.

If you answered no to some or all of the above then now is the time to wake up to yourself!

Indulge in some real you time! Set aside an hour alone with just a pen and paper.

Consider your life right now. For every question above where you answered ‘no’, now ask ‘why? Once you know ‘why’ then you can identify what needs to change. Once you know what needs to change, you can decide the first step in making that change.

Sometimes when we want to change things in our lives we look at the big picture and it all seems so far away and unreachable that often we push it aside and it then becomes just a dream.

The key is to break it down into smaller chunks – draw up a plan of where you are now, where you want to be and by when you want to be there. Next set weekly goals, write down the first step, then the 2nd step and so on. Once you break it down and start reaching these weekly goals, you become more motivated and pretty soon you are half way towards your desired outcome in no time at all.

Anything is achievable if you have the desire. Once you start looking ahead and planning for the future your life will have new meaning, you will become enthusiastic and positive.

If you have no enthusiasm for life then something needs to change, don’t waste any more time, life is too short!!
