Success is not the key to happiness. Joy is essential to success. If you love what you are doing, you will achieve success.
Albert Schweitzer (1875 – 1965)
We are busier than ever before, working long hours and feeling increasingly stressed. How do you spend your time? Many people regard work and pleasure as distinct, with work seen as a necessary evil that must be completed to pay the bills. It does not always have to look like that. Although we do not have to enjoy everything we do, we do require some enjoyment from the majority of what we do. Please take a moment to consider whether it is time to start over and do something you enjoy, something that brings the satisfaction element back into your working life.
IT IS HIGHLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR YOU TO BE SUCCESSFUL AT WHAT YOU DON’T LOVE. DO WHAT YOU LOVE, LOVE WHAT YOU DO!ISRAELMORE AYIVOR
Consider what is important to you and why you do the things you do. That means different things to different people. What aspects of a job are essential to you? Describe them in detail. Consider your ideal job. Is it inspiring and motivating to you? Otherwise, reconsider. It must mean something to you, or you will not be willing to put forth the effort required to achieve your goals. ‘What am I willing to give up to make this happen?’ ‘What do you think I should try?’ ‘Do I have any options?’ ‘What are my talents, skills, and high qualities?’ ‘How can I put them to use in my ideal job?’ How do you take an idea and turn it into reality? Develop your creativity and consider how you can make money doing what you enjoy.
Rebounding necessitates guts, confidence, and dedication. Maintain your sense of purpose. It would be best if you relied on yourself. Ignore the movie critics (there will inevitably be some), and face your fears (there will inevitably be some!). Solicit assistance from those who can help you, as well as advocates to keep you motivated. The study points pique your interest, and if necessary, you can go back to basics and learn brand-new skills. Create a clear vision of where you want to be in ten years, as well as why. Could you please write it down? Specify. This will undoubtedly provide you with something to focus on. Assume imaginatively. This may not happen overnight, but it can happen day by day if you work on it gradually.
Also, if starting something new is what you want, how can you be happy with your current job? You cannot always manage your situation; however, you can always choose how you react to it—your perspective colors how you encounter every day and influences those around you. Choose to be positive. Are there any aspects of your job that you could improve? To whom can you discuss this? Is it possible to choose to adapt to a new role in the same company? Take a look at the options. Your job does not define you, but how you do it does.
