Almost everyone on this planet has to have a job or some source of income to truly survive! If not, we will struggle beyond belief!
Do you want to struggle or can you at least accept your job for what it is for now and follow these 3 simple steps I have provided to help you learn how to enjoy your job and live a happier life?
1. Be Thankful and Treat Yourself!
I know you already know this, but it’s so true. Be thankful that we even have a job.
Some people in the world really do have nothing and can barely even feed themselves or their families.
I think many of us forget this, that the real struggle others face in the world is real. It’s really heartbreaking how some people don’t make any money or very little to barely make ends meet. Every now and again we need to remind ourselves how lucky we really are to even have money to pay for what we need.
The money we make is providing housing for us to live in and food on the table. With that being said, we truly are thankful for making the money we do right?
Now treat yourself for all the hard-earned money you make by,
- Bringing in a nice hot cup of coffee in a really good thermos to sip on for the first couple hours at work (or bring in a herbal tea to enjoy).
- Making sure you packed a hearty and healthy lunch and snacks you really like to eat. I’m a health freak but I really like to eat chocolate. I always make sure I bring in a treat just like a little kid would enjoy getting a treat in a candy store. It’s something to look forward to at breaks and probably perk you up to have a more productive day too.
- Packing your lunch the night before so you don’t have to be pressed for time in the mornings and rush to work. We all know this can make starting out your day stressful already before you even get to work. You can prevent this.
- Buying your lunch on paycheck day or the last day of the week so you don’t have to think about what to make. This makes working a whole lot easier to get ready in the mornings.
Be thankful for the money you are earning every day. The money you earn pays the bills, groceries, and experiences you and your family get to have the privilege to enjoy. Also, treat yourself with some of your favorite snacks, etc. when you are at work so that it can help you have a more enjoyable and productive day.
2. Stay Positive!
Know how to stay positive around negative people!
I can’t stress this enough!
I’ve had many co-workers complain to me saying, I don’t have enough money, I hate my job, working sucks, when am I going to win the lottery, life sucks, etc. the list goes on and on and on. Seriously! You know these negative Nancy’s right? They always try to bring other people down to their level.
This is how I deal with negative co-workers at my everyday job!
Do you know what I always say to them? “I don’t think that way, I am a positive person and I am very thankful for my job”.
So many times I have said this line to people and you know what? They begin to see life from a “new perspective”. They stop complaining to me because they know I will not “feed their ego”. Some people just don’t know how to appreciate what they already have. Not to say they can’t change. Because they certainly can.
I just know that I’m not going to live my life in a negative way and you don’t have to either.
LEAD BY EXAMPLE!
Stay positive around negative people. You will start to see more positive co-workers gravitate toward you, therefore making it for a much better working environment.
If you have to, take breaks alone. Listen to positive podcasts that you can learn something from or go for a walk. Just always stay far away from the negative Nancy’s!
3. Try A New Job!
If you’re really not enjoying your current job, there are other solutions to consider!
One could be that you do something else for your current employer. Ask to move to another job or maybe switch departments. We often get bored having to do the same thing day in and day out. Most people appreciate variety, different scenery or even different people to work with. When we feel like we are doing the same old boring thing every day, we stop enjoying it.
I’ve experienced many different jobs in different departments at the same company and will probably continue to do so.
Don’t be afraid of change! It really does help us grow and succeed. I know because I’ve done it so many times.
If, you are feeling really stuck and really can’t go anywhere else, maybe try a whole different approach!!!
TRY WORKING ONLINE!
Just because you have a job doesn’t mean you can’t try another one and work at both.
It doesn’t matter how old you are or if you don’t have any experience. You can learn anything if you put your mind to it and have the motivation to do so.
It doesn’t have to break the bank or hole in your wallet either!
All you need is to have an interest/passion to help people with pretty much anything and you can have your own online business to create anything you want to. When I first started, I didn’t even know how to copy and paste. Now I have my very own website up and running in under 3 months.
Let me explain more,
There are more than 4 billion people using the internet now and there’s supposed to be over 6 billion people using the internet by 2021. That’s an insane number of people we could reach and help in the world.
If, you have a passion to help others and want to learn how you too can grow an income online, check out my Wealthy Affiliate Review here to learn more about this fantastic program.
I highly recommend this as my #1 go-to for all beginners who want to start a new career making passive money online. They offer a FREE starter membership so you can see what it’s all about first before you move forward.
If you sign up the first 7 days, you only pay $19/month and after that, it’s only $49/month (or save and pay for the entire year for only $359 total). Now that’s not really breaking the bank or your wallet to learn exactly how you can create wealth for a better future, is it?
It’s not a get-rich-quick process. If, you want money asap then don’t bother trying this. This is truly a legit program and learning how to build an online business takes time and effort. If you are ready to do something else and really want to learn how to be happier at a job you will love even more than your current one, Wealthy Affiliate is the place to be.
My Final Opinion!
You don’t have to be stuck at your current job forever if you don’t want to be. You can always try working a part-time job while you stay at your current one to see if there’s something out there that would be more enjoyable for you to do every day.
I have a husband, 2 kids, my regular job, and now my blogging job ( my passion). You can do anything if you really put your mind to it! I can truly say that I am really enjoying all of my jobs and that I really love what I do!
