I hate my job -- what can I do about it?
Are you currently at a job you hate? Ok, maybe hate’s a strong word … are you currently at a job that you find uninspiring? Why stick around? I know, it’s because there are bills to pay, mouths to feed, etc, right? But it’s not impossible to find jobs that you truly love that also pay the bills and feed mouths, so what’s stopping you? Oh wait, I know -- you don’t have the time, money, skills, resources, energy, sugar daddy, sugar mama, <insert other noun here> to enable that. Yup, we’ve heard it all. Heck, we’ve used those same words ourselves!
BUT … and this is a big BUT (and we cannot lie), it’s all a story you’ve told yourself, and we can say that with 100% certainty. Ok, so before you groan and click away, let me just tell you one more thing -- you CAN break the barriers that exist within your own mind, which is what is stopping you from achieving your dream career, not that other stuff. Yes, a killer resume or a great LinkedIn profile will help, but that's at the later stages. It first starts with changing your mindset and habits, but even a few steps before that, you need to really get to know yourself first.
This process will take time and effort if you’re serious about finding happiness in your professional life, but it starts with just 1 ACTION! What is that, you ask? Easy! Download this guide and fill it out. Ok, so that’s 2 actions, but at least start with downloading. Then if you feel adventurous, open it up, read it, and as you feel more and more inspired (which we have a feeling you will), fill out the sections to really get to know yourself a little better. It will require thought, and it may feel uncomfortable to answer questions and think about things in a way you’ve never thought about before, but when did anyone ever complain about opening up their mind to the world of possibilities out there? Definitely beats thinking that you have no possibilities, right?
So go ahead, give this guide a shot, and start taking control of your professional life rather than letting it control you!
Still skeptical? Not sure what to expect? Here’s some more info:
