It’s amazing how many people hate their jobs. According to a Gallup poll, that amounts to about 70%. That’s a pretty sobering statistic, and it’s sad that most of these people would rather moan and groan about their employment status, than take steps to improve their situation.
You may have a dream job in mind, but with looming bills hanging over your head, you can’t just toss your job aside and announce that you’re starting a singing or acting career. So, what can you do?
Here are four ways to take back control of your life:
Make journaling a daily habit and put your whole soul into it. Is the boss getting on your last nerve? Write it down. Are there co-workers that are so annoying that you pray that they will buy a one-way ticket out the country? Write it down.
Just expressing your feelings will take away a lot of your stress, and you can begin to clarify your goals. Don’t be afraid to let it all out, because this is for your eyes only.
Look For New Opportunities
Scan job boards, visit temp agencies, and stop in at your local EDD. If you want to work from home, join groups such as WAHM. Put the word out among your friends that you’re looking for new opportunities.
Improve Your Current Situation
Why did you apply for this job? Was it a case of necessity that you wanted to keep food on the table, and a roof over your head? Did you see an opportunity where you could make a difference?
Maybe you just need to tweak a few things. Can you work another shift, or job share with someone? Do you need more training to increase your confidence?
Listen to a Hypnosis Session
This has really made a difference in my life. What makes it so powerful is that you need help to bridge the gap from where you are now to where you want to be. Otherwise you may get discouraged and just decide it’s safer to stay where are.
As you listen repeatedly to your download, you’ll get a clearer sense of what your future holds, and the steps it will take to get there.
As the old saying goes, “there ain’t no free lunch.” It will take patience and perseverance to reach your goals, but when you get to the other side it will be well worth it.
